Hotel Review: Renaissance Paris Republique

I’m going to level with you and tell you right off the bat that this is not the gold standard of locations in Paris. The hotel website places it in Le Marais but that is perhaps a good 20 to 25 minute walk away. The neighbourhood has a very edgy, eclectic feel, which has its charms if you prefer your travel experiences to be as authentic as possible in a popular tourist destination. If I had to rate its proximity to the attractions people travel to Paris for I’d give it a solid 5 out of ten. It is however very close to the Place de la Republique metro station, and the Gare du Nord train station is not too far away either.
