Lighting makes a fashionable statement at Bastille hotel

Color Design Hotel wraps an entire design theme around the color wheel, showing off different hues on every floor and lighting features that add a fresh, theatrical look to the property. Located in the trendy Bastille neighborhood, the hotel even utilizes colorful hues in its vaulted morning room, where mod white furniture contrast with streams of color shining from all directions. Mosaic-tiled bathrooms lend even more excitement to the space.

Highlights
  • Color-themed hotel incorporates high-tech lighting on every floor
  • Located in the trendy Bastille neighborhood
  • Close to the Marais and Place des Vosges
  • Vaulted morning room for breakfast
Location

Color Design Hotel guests are spoiled by the hotel's proximity to major Paris landmarks, including the Marais, Place des Vosges and the Carnavalet Museum. The Bastille, the city's trendiest neighborhood, overflows with an abundance of shops, bars and restaurants as well.

Rooms

Rooms at the Color Design Hotel avoid the sterility associated with the modern aesthetic thanks to a heavy emphasis on color. Every floor has its own hue, every room its own aura. Grey comforters accent bold fluorescent green curtains, while gorgeous mosaic bathroom tiles dazzle in various shades of blue. Lighting, from elongated task lamps to LED versions, set the tone for relaxation. Amenities tend to creature comforts like Wi-Fi access, air conditioning and direct dial telephone.

 

Dining

The vaulted morning room at Color Design Hotel speaks to Paris old and new. Guests dine in a cavern-like setting underneath streaks of colorful lights. Stark white tables throw in a dash of mod flavor.

Comfortable Hotel for short break

Hotel suited us fine for a short stay of 2 nights. I wouldn't want to stay any longer as the room was small and had very little storage. There was some privacy issues with the bathroom also, which had no lock and the door was more of a plastic screen than a door so you could hear everything that was going on in there. Funniest safe I've ever seen! It was good that there was a safe but it wasn't secured to anything so you could just pick it up and walk away with it! It wasn't even heavy!! The shower was really good but the shower door needs to extend all the way across as the floor got very wet when the shower was running. There was also a square hole in the wall of the bathroom for some reason, it wasn't noticeable though when I put it back in place. We got the hotel on a deal on a booking website but if I had paid the advertised price of 235 euro a night (room only, no breakfast included) I would have felt a bit ripped off, maybe this is standard pricing for Paris but it does seem a lot for this hotel. The staff were nice, particularly Ronan who welcomed us on our first night. Location is good, five minute walk to the Metro and lots of cafes and bars nearby.

Location, Location, Location this Hotel does not have it.

The information online said multi-language speaking staff. Not true only one staff member knew very limited English, so, I was on my own and away from everything. Thank God they were near a metro. The neighborhood was bordering on bad, so, I did not feel safe coming back after dark. The hotel was very noisy. If you plan on sleeping between the hours of 12:00 pm and 4:00 am--good luck. I'm not sure why they have staff there at night, because all they did was make a lot of noise--banging, slamming doors, smoking, talking loud, and playing loud music. I actually had a comfortable bed even though the room was small, stuffy, and my window did not open.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Buy a metro ticket and skip the Hop on Hop off tour--you can probably do without any tours or the Paris Pass. It would be cheaper to buy tickets at the places and get their by the metro. The metro is safe, clean, and filled with other tourist.

Nice colors nice place!

I really liked the hotel and especially where it was located. It was a bit outside the tourist areas (east of Bastille) - it was more in a residential area which I prefer. And because of that, there were some really good restaurants around. Plus there is a Metro station right around the corner, which is a great and easy way to get around Paris. As for the rooms. When I first booked the hotel, I read a lot of reviews about the place. The biggest complaint I read was that it had paper thin walls. However, I did not hear any of our neighbors. But since the doors were heavy, you can hear people opening and shutting them. But otherwise, the noise level was at a minimum (except for the one night with some drunk girls outside!) As for the size of the room... like all boutique hotels, it was small, but manageable - very much like NY hotels. The bathroom was also small, but the shower was great! It had good water pressure and a waterfall-like shower-head imbedded in the ceiling!!! But it did get the bathroom a little wet all over. They did clean the rooms everyday. The bed was comfortable... really, if you're in Paris, the only reason to be in the hotel is to sleep and shower. The only thing we did not do is eat their breakfast - complete rip-off! As mentioned, there are plenty of restaurants and bakeries around, you will find plenty of places to get a good breakfast at a fraction of the cost at the hotel. It's definitely a hotel I would book again!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Go around the hotel and check out the restaurants around. If there is one you like, please make reservations... so many of them are packed at night! If anything go the night before and see which are filled, it will give you a good indication on how good it was.

Decent Hotel, Staff Not So Good

The hotel is nice and a convenient location but small, and some of the staff was a bit rude. The shower flooded the bathroom and into the bedroom area, and when I went to ask for an extra towel to clean up the mess the man at the front desk was very unhelpful and blamed me for causing the flooding and was reluctant to part with even a towel.

Fantastic shower!

My friend and I stayed on the 4th floor of the Color Design hotel a few weeks back and had an extremely enjoyable experience. The room was not too big but proved to be extremely comfortable for the two of us. The bed was fantastic with plenty of big, squashy pillows. Loved the plasma tv and iPod docking station. Favorite part of room was definitely the shower, which had EXCELLENT water pressure with a nice hand-held option in addition to the in-ceiling showerhead fixture. Slightly strange was the clear bathroom door, but it did not make too much of a difference for us. One negative about the hotel was the soundproofing - could hear people in room next door. BUT, the price, location (tons of bars and restaurants nearby), cleanliness, modernity, and helpfulness of the staff countered the soundproofing issue. I would definitely stay there again.
