Hôtel Bastille de Launay Review
The no-frills decor might seem spartan at first, but this boutique hotel also offers some creature comforts, modern amenities like free Wi-Fi, and a perfect location a few blocks from the regal Place des Vosges. Cozy rooms are calm and quiet and have the high-quality mattresses more often found in a four-star hotel. Rooms 7 and 8 at the back of the courtyard occupy a smaller building that feels like a bed-and-breakfast in the countryside. Ask about king-size beds if you want to splurge.
