Offering “studios” with kitchenettes and a touch of style near the Bastille, the Adagio Access Paris Bastille is an option for Cheapos who are happy to cook (and clean) for themselves.
Pros: Studios come with kitchenettes. Spacious bathrooms. Budget rates.
Cons: No Wi-Fi and wired internet not free. Minimal services.
The Adagio Access Paris Bastille, formerly known as “Le 300,” offers guestrooms equipped with kitchenettes and large bathrooms a few blocks east of the Bastille. The three-star residence switched management in 2013 and still presents a practical option for budget travelers who want to cook for themselves.
Rooms, referred to as “studios,” are non-smoking and sleep one or two guests. 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 blue tiles, a towel warmer and a glass-walled shower.
Notably, 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.
On the downside, the Adagio Access doesn’t offer all the services you’d expect of a hotel. Most notably, they don’t clean your studio during your stay, so keep it clean. Also, rather surprisingly, Wi-Fi is not offered (seriously) and you’ll have to pay to use the wired internet.
Downstairs, the hotel’s 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?)

About the Adagio Access Paris Bastille neighborhood
The Bastille is located just east of the Marais in the 11th arrondissement, centered around the Place de la Bastille, once home to the infamous Bastille prison which was destroyed during the revolution (1789) and now anchored by a modern opera house that is the aesthetic opposite of the Opéra Garnier across town.
