Le 300 offers ultra-modern guestrooms equipped with kitchenettes and large bathrooms a few blocks east of the Bastille. The three-star residence opened in 2008 and presents a very practical (and stylish) option, especially for travelers wishing to cook for themselves.
Pros: Stylishly decorated studios come with kitchenettes. Spacious bathrooms.
Cons: Not all travellers need/want a kitchen. Wi-Fi costs extra.
Rooms, referred to as “studios” by Le 300, are non-smoking and sleep one or two guests. The décor is equal parts hip and playful, with blue carpets, bright green bedspreads, dark wooden headboards and framed prints hanging on white walls. Giant windows face the street or overlook the area’s famous Viaduc des Arts (a viaduct-turned-outdoor-garden and gallery space). Many rooms offer balconies (ask when booking).
Bathrooms struck us as quite large for Paris, with new blue tiles, a towel warmer and a glass-walled shower.
What makes the 300 a deal, however, are the “studio” touches. A kitchenette, located next to the bathroom, provides two burners, a mini-fridge, microwave and sink. Cupboards offer space to store supplies, along with a set of utensils, plates and glasses. Nearby, a small table and two chairs offer a place to sit and eat.
Downstairs, the hotel’s pretty, light-filled breakfast room overlooks the garden. A breakfast buffet, offered for €8, is worth considering. However, we’d take advantage of the nearby farmers’ markets and patisseries, and serve ourselves upstairs in our studio. (Seriously, if you’re staying in Paris for an extended period, your own kitchen will come in very handy. Croissants are nice for breakfast—but every morning?)
Note: Wireless is available throughout the hotel for an extra charge.

About the Le 300 neighborhood
The Bastille, often overlooked by tourists, is located just east of the Marais in the 11th arrondissement. The neighborhood is centered around the Place de la Bastille, once home to the infamous Bastille prison, and today home to shops, trendy bars and a strikingly modern opera house. Hotels around the Bastille are easily accessed by public transportation and within walking distance of central Paris.
