The Rue de Charonne, in Paris's 11th arrondissement, starts not far from the Place de la Bastille and ends on the boundary of the 20th arrondissement which is none other than the ancient village of Charonne with its Saint-Germain parish church, its blocks of small houses and the remains of cobbled streets. This was therefore the road that lead from the gates of the city to this village. The Rue de Charonne, just a stone's throw from the Place de la Bastille and the Place de la Nation, is also situated in one of the most dynamic quarters of Paris, with numerous boutiques and local shops in particular.
It's also on this road that houses our charming hotel in the 11th arrondissement: The Classics Hotel Bastille. The Rue de Charonne, along with its neighboring Rue du Faubourg-Saint-Antoine, has always been home to artisans, particularly cabinetmakers. Elsewhere, you can see, transformed into modern shops, the ancient workshops and their adjacent courtyards, as well as magnificent vestiges of the narrow alleys between the houses. Fashion boutiques, furniture shops, interior design outlets, art galleries and restaurants line the Rue de Charonne, which makes it a dream location for our three-star hotel.
The Classics Hotel Bastille, situated near to the Place de la Nation, at number 131, is located between rue Léon-Frot and Boulevard Voltaire; a charming and typically traditional corner of Paris's 11th arrondissement with its local shops and bistros. Upon arrival at the Classics Hotel, the visitor receives a warm welcome and discovers something which the façade keeps hidden: a charming town garden with white-painted iron chairs and tables surrounded by walls of greenery, in which you immediately feel like having a refreshment. Our three-star hotel also boasts a veranda where breakfast is served in the morning, and where you can read one of the newspapers which are provided free of charge for our guests.
