Jean-Luc was a fabulous host. Bonne Nuit is perfectly situated in Le Marais; it’s like a hidden secret behind beautiful wooden doors. The croissant and baguette served at breakfast were the best I’ve had in my entire life! Super comfortable beds. Real Parisian charm recommended by a Parisian!

We stayed here for three nights in May of 2015. Our host, Jean-Luc, greeted us on arrival and gave us a thorough and interesting orientation, explaining where to find services in the neighborhood, recommending tourist sites, giving us the history of his building, and seemed sincerely interested in making us comfortable. Our room was bright and cheery. The breakfasts were standard French–bread, butter, jam, croissants, coffee, tea–but served in a lovely dining room.
The location on a quiet street a 5-minute walk from the Metro and restaurants is a good one for exploring Paris.
After we left we realized we had left an electronic device behind (a FitBit). We called Jean-Luc and he sent it to us at our next hotel at no charge. Great service.
We would stay here again

I found Bonne Nuit through The Guardian, it was one of the most recommended bed and breakfast in Paris, and it was located in my favourite district. It was perfect! Jean-Luc was the best! The area is very nice and quiet, near the metro, very clean rooms, the shower was the best and the breakfast was simple but good! The croissants were fantastic. The house itself was beautiful! Jean-Luc took very good care of us. And lots of good restaurants, cafes and patisserie around. It’ll now be our new home whenever we return to Paris.
We stayed here for just one night before a conference (a birthday treat for me!) and it was really lovely. We had booked the Jardin du Marais room, but when we got there both upstairs rooms were open, so we actually got to stay in the Enclos des Templiers—a romantic, atmospheric suite with exposed wooden beams and a little canopy on the bed, and windows looking out into the quiet courtyard. (Small word of warning—the bathroom and shower in this room have frosted glass doors and you can see the person inside when the light’s on, so make sure you’re comfortable with each other…) Jean-Luc himself was very kind and charming and offered a number of suggestions for sights tailored to our interests, some of which we had time to follow. Breakfast was simple but yummy: croissants/bread, homemade jam and honey, and coffee or tea. Jean-Luc sat and talked with us and the other guests, so it really felt family-style. The location is unbeatable, as well: close to the metro, in a very nice historic area with good food and shopping for those who want to partake. Keep in mind that it is a very old (albeit well taken care of) house, so it has quirks, but for anyone who values authenticity and warmth over generic hotel amenities this is a perfect choice. I’d gladly stay here again given the opportunity.
We stayed at Bonne Nuit Paris for four nights in the first week of June 2015 and we had a great time. We chose the double room on the ground floor called La Cave du Grand Prieur and it was perfect for us. The room was located to the rear of the house which you enter through a small courtyard. It was nice and quiet and the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a nice shower. It was spotlessly clean. Its not a huge room but its perfect for two. Every morning we went up stairs to Jean Luc’s apartment where we received a warm welcome and where we were served fresh croissants, bread, orange juice and tea. We felt very comfortable and relaxed and Jean Luc was very helpful with tips on places to eat and visit locally. The area itself is just perfect, it has a nice vibe and atmosphere day and night. It has a very local feel in a huge city like Paris. There are loads of choices for places to eat for all budgets and there is a lovely market at the end of the street, it won’t disappoint in that regard. There are also a lot of small shops and boutiques to browse if you have the time. The area felt very safe day and night and it is close to the Metro at La Republique so you are never far away from the hustle and bustle of the major tourist attractions, its also a short walk (15 -20 minutess wandering) to the Seine and Notre Dame. We felt very at home here I would certainly recommend to my friends. If you want an authentic and real experience of Paris this is the place for you, I’d certainly go back. Enjoy!
