Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Bastille, a nightlife and dining hub east of historic Le Marais

The Color Design Hotel is located on a small street adjacent to Saint-Antoine Hospital, in an area just southeast of Bastille. The nightlife and dining scene are the main draws to this neighborhood. There are few attractions nearby, but the subway is just a couple of blocks away, which makes it convenient for exploring attractions in central Paris.

Le Marais, an upscale, historic neighborhood west of Bastille, is one of the must-sees in Paris, and it is just a 15 to 20-minute walk away. Here, beautiful architecture, great boutiques, and good dining options are found, as well as a wide array of antiques stores and sights such as the Home of Victor Hugo, the Place des Vosges, and the National Archives.
