Review Summary


  • 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

  • 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.
