Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Convenient, central location in the Bastille district
  • Trendy, appealing black and white decor
  • Modern rooms with flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi
  • Creative, inviting common spaces including lobby and lounge
  • Bright, cozy breakfast room with striped black and white chairs
  • Good value for location and quality

Cons

  • No fitness center or spa (typical of Parisian boutiques)
  • Some bathrooms are cramped
  • The lively Bastille district can be noisy

Bottom Line

The 36-room Standard Design Hotel is located in the lively Bastille district. This boutique property features creative, black and white decor in the common lounges, cozy breakfast room, and rooms. A different accent color sets rooms apart from one another, though they all have the same appealing carpets, bedspreads, and light fixtures. The design, convenient location, and free Wi-Fi make the hotel a good value, but don't expect much in the way of amenities -- there is no gym, spa, or on-site restaurant.

 Location

Within walking distance of shops and restaurants in the Bastille district

The Standard Design Hotel is in the city's 11th district. There are many restaurants and boutiques here, and younger crowds might appreciate the area's bar and club scene. There are few sights within walking distance, but there are a number of metro stations in the area.

Paris is one of Europe's most densely populated cities, and is currently one of the world's most important business and cultural metropolises. Known as "The City of Light" for its growth during the Age of Enlightenment, Paris is home to some of the world's most luxurious fashion (Hermes, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent), iconic museums, and structures such as the Eiffel Tower and Arc De Triomphe, as well as major media and business outlets.

  • 30-minute drive to Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport
  • 3-to-5-minute walk to dining and shopping
  • 4-to-10-minute walk to surrounding metro stations
  • 8-minute walk to Opera Bastille
  • 10-minute drive to Notre Dame
  • 12-minute drive to Jardin du Luxembourg
  • 13-minute drive to Tuileries Garden
  • 18-minute drive to the Eiffel Tower
  • 21-minute drive to Arc De Triomphe
