The room was spartan but clean. Hotel is convenient to the Pompidou Centre. I could hear slamming doors in the hallway, yet otherwise the room was surprisingly quiet and airy. It is a small room, a bit of a stretch for a couple with luggage but manageable. I doubt it would be possible to find a better deal in Paris.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stylish hotel in a great location"
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel du Haut Marais. Our room was very stylish and spotlessly clean. It combined period character with mod cons and the welcome was very warm (also the weather, which made the very quiet ceiling fan essential as there is no AC). The immediate neighbourhood was great - lots of nice bars and cafes away from the main […] touristy areas while still being very easily accessible by foot from the Pompidou Centre etc. We'll be back!

"Reasonably priced, great bathrooms, poor breakfast"
Our bed was great and the bathroom was terrific however very noisy mornings with a school yard right in front of our window. I would recommend you pass on the breakfast and find fresh croissants elsewhere. The breakfast was overrated and your time would be better spent finding some fresh from some of the bakeries close by. I was disappointed that a […] bed and breakfast would skimp on fresh bread given how accessible and inexpensive it is there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hôtel du Haut Marais Thank you for taking the time to post a comment on our hotel after your stay with us. I am truly sorry that you have not enjoyed our breakfast. However, be sure that we make a point of serve only fresh bread and croissants. Every morning we pick up our baguettes and croissants in our bakery on Rue de Bretagne "Chez Manon" which has a very good reputation in our neighborhood. we are really sad the you didn't like it. However, be sure we going to see if I can do somting better. All the best.
"Great family-run hotel in ideal location"
Rooms perhaps a little small for a long stay but perfect for a city-break. I'll stay there again when I next visit ParisGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Viihtyisä, kodinomainen hotelli hyvällä sijainnilla. Omistajat olivat mukavia. Huone oli aika pieni mutta kodikas. Ilmastoinnin puuttuminen miinusta kesäkuumalla.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastiskt personligt B'nB på bästa läge"

"Great Location, OK Accommodations/Hospitality"
09/15/14 NoLaNooga Chattanooga, Tennessee
I was expecting to be "wowed" based upon TripAdvisor reviews, but sadly, I was not. I should have known that a place at this price point wouldn't be as great as the reviews made it seem. If given the chance to stay in Paris again, I wouldn't necessarily stay here again. For reference, we stayed in the suite (room 51). The suite was sufficiently large for us; there were only 2 complaints I had with the room: (1) The sink is so utterly tiny that washing your face in the sink is nearly impossible. The faucet spans the entire depth of the sink. (2) The bed wasn't comfortable. It had this strange dip in the middle of the bed, so back support was nil. My 6'2 husband's feet hung off the bed. We didn't have this issue in other European hotels. Nonetheless, the location is fantastic. If we return to Paris, we will definitely want to stay in the same area. Keep in mind 1. Kitchens are not cleaned. If you make use of kitchen, you must clean it yourself. 2. Breakfast is akin to a typical "cold", continental breakfast at an American hotel but with better bread, of course. You'll have sliced ham, cheese, baguette, croissant, yogurt, fresh fruit, and cold cereal as buffet options. If you arrive later to breakfast, your options are greatly reduced. I'm not sure why everyone raves about the breakfast; it was really just average. 3. There is some repair work taking place on the facade and roof next door. The work commences around 8 AM, so sleeping in may not be an option for you while this repair work is occurring. 4. Yes, there is an elementary school across the street. If you keep your windows open, you will hear kids playing around 8 AM, 2 PM, and 4:30 PM. The noise was never bothersome for us. 5. Given that this is a small "hotel", you must be a bit more quiet when coming and going. If the TV wasn't on, we could hear other patrons calling for the lift. 6. The area is located in a "China Town" area. There are some good Chinese restaurant options nearby. I know it sounds crazy to eat Chinese while in Paris, but don't rule it out for a quick bite to eat. Also, the Chinese restaurants allow take out, which is much appreciated in a city that doesn't necessarily have these options. 7. I didn't think that the owners were hospitable 100% of the time. If you have questions/comments, reserve them for breakfast time when they seem the most hospitable. If you happen to speak to them while they are in the "living room/lobby", you will not get the best service/hospitality. 8. Upon entering the hotel through this "side door", there is a faint urine smell from the front door to the elevator. I don't know if this is the smell of their dog's urine or what, but I smelled it every time we entered/left hotel. 9. There are no wash cloths. Some European hotels have them and some do not. Some people are wash cloth people; some are not. We are and were a bit bummed that they didn't have these smaller sized towels in order to properly scrub our bodies after being out in Paris all day. There is a Monop' store nearby and a larger Monoprix store at the nearest, large metro stop (Reamur/Sebastopol) for you to pick up any items (shampoo, body wash, etc) to make your stay more comfortable if you are not satisfied with any of the products supplied in the room. 10. Our room had the most amazing light. We only had to turn on lights during night. 11. There is no A/C, but it was never a problem for us. We simply left the windows open and turned on a fan when needed. The neighborhood is pretty quiet excluding kids playing at the school.
"Good, but didn't live up to expectations"
08/25/14 Summera3 Louisville, Kentucky
This hotel had such great reviews that I had high hopes, but it really fell flat in a lot of areas. The rooms--or at least the room that I got--was very small. I've stayed in paris before and I know that this is to be expected, but based on the photos, I was expecting rooms that were a little bigger. I got room 41, which was one of the more basic rooms. The hotel seemed to be more of a man's place--my husband loved the feel of it, but I found it to be very basic and not particularly suited to women. The bathroom products were super bare: a shrink-wrapped plastic cup, and those foil packed sample sized generic body wash and shampoo. The lobby is basically used as the living room of the two men that live there, and I was disappointed that they weren't more welcoming. You come and go through a side door, which bypasses the lobby, and every time I went in the to inquire about something, I felt like an intruder and never felt very welcome. We never saw anyone else come or go, so it was a pretty solitary experience. The elevator was TINY. Like so tiny that it was extremely claustrophobic with just 2 people in the elevator. -The mattress was pretty thin and not very firm, which was a disappointment. There were a few things that I was very pleased with: -The room was very clean -The outlets were plentiful and well placed--I hate it when you can't find an outlet to plug in your phone or computer, but this room had outlets by both sides of the bed, and several other places in the room, though strangely enough none in the bathroom. -The location was good -My husband really liked the shower -there was a ceiling fan (although it wobbled which is a little scary when it is right over the bed) and the windows opened. overall, I'd be more inclined to rate this more like 3 stars, but my husband liked it a lot, so I'm bumping it up a star. depending on what you are looking for, it could be a good option, but just don't expect any frills.
"Lovely, brief stay"
08/06/14 njt1982 Liverpool, United Kingdom
I stayed here for one night on a business trip at Easter time. I arrived fairly late to the hotel, interrupting the owners' dinner in the reception area, but this was not a problem. As hosts they were charming, witty and helpful in provifing me with details of restaurants and bars in the local area. Having stayed in many cramped, poky Parisian rooms I was not expecting a great space but the room in the Hotel du Haut Marais is really lovely and well-decorated. The bed was comfy and I managed a good night sleep. The bathroom was excellent with a spacious shower with two rain showers! Breakfast in the morning was absolutely lovely. Didier served excellent coffee and I had a really filling, delicious breakfast. The room where breakfast is served is absolutely beautiful- a great start to the day. In terms of value for money I would recommend the hotel without heistation as you don't get much value for money in central Paris hotels!
"Didnt appreciate the smoke!"
08/01/14 JLim Australia
Had a room on 1st floor (no lift from ground, lift starts from 1st flr) facing street. Tiny room for 2 adults with suitcases, but a pretty big bathroom with tub. Very Stuffy in the summer with no aircond or fan!! Forced to leave window open to sleep at night, which was horrible when one of the owners kept going out into the street to smoke all night!! Lounge/lobby area stank of smoke as well. Room was clean & complimentary bottles of water appreciated. Location great.
"Clean and friendly"
07/10/14 PerElis Ludvigsborg, Sweden
Visited Hôtel du Haut Marais with daughter in July. Reservation and payment was really simple. Arriving to the hotel you get to a nice lobby (which also include a dog in the sofa (a Parisian thing?)) Room clean and OK size for the price. Bathroom super, but bring your won schampoo. Breakfast very good with a good cup of coffee. ) year old daughter approved of it as well, hence child safe. Noisy doors though...

Great bed and breakfast. Perfect location. The rooms were very clean and cosy. The owners are lovely but watch out for Didier he's got a crazy, awesome sense of humour. Will 100% stay there again if we are in Paris!
"Loved the place. Will definately visit again."

Small rooms but beautiful old building. Mod cons. Quietly situated. Helpful, friendly proprieter. More than adequate breakfast. The bread was delicious. Lovely area of Paris. Perfect for sightseeing and strolling. Very reasonably priced for Paris. K Hook (UK)

Being our first time in Paris and only second time in Europe, it was very difficult to gage the relative location and standards of each hotel. For North American standards, the room (and hotel) would be considered tiny. So if you are at all bothered by this, look elsewhere. But having said that, we were very pleased with the hotel. It was clean and it was incredible value. Unless you are willing to pay well over $200 euro a night, then you should consider this hotel. Regarding the location, we were a bit uncomfortable walking in the neighbourhood at night. We only stayed 2 nights and perhaps if we stayed longer, we would have been more accustomed to the area.
"The Prince of Boutique Hotels in Paris"
02/12/14 JakeTporry Stockholm, Sweden
The Hotel du Haut Marais in Paris is the smallest of small hotels having only 8 rooms. The smallness of the hotel qualifies as a home with a hotel bias. The hotel is run by the owner couple and they look after the guests as their own guests. The breakfast is the clincher as far as this hotel is concerned. The breakfast consists of a large variety of foods that include fresh fruits, yogurt, dried fruits, croissant, and beverages. The coffee was something unique and I am still curious as to its blend. If you have the breakfast at the last minute, then you can conduct your sightseeing without spending on lunch. The service is what is expected of a boutique hotel and with extra care taken by the owners it turns out to be superb. If you are a double couple, then the suite is for you.
"A superb base for a stay in Paris"
01/28/14 Oscar R Cirencester, United Kingdom
This was our second stay of Hotel du Haut Marais. Our room are small but very stylishly decorated and absolutely perfect as a base for a visit to Paris. After all, little time is spent in the hotel when there is so much else on offer. On both occasions we had a room away from the street and it was very quiet. Breakfast is taken in the undercroft around a large table. There is fresh fruit, meat and cheeses, croissants and bread, yoghurt, tea and coffee - in fact, plenty to sustain you for a full day's sightseeing. There are a couple of Metro stations within a short walk and all of central Paris is quickly accessible. The hotel is not well suited for those with physical disabilities as the stairs are steep and the lift tiny. Didier is a wonderful host and ensures that everything is maintained to the highest standard. In summary, we recommend the Hotel du Haut Marais most highly as a modest yet delightful hotel in central Paris.
