Hotel Mareuil: new boutique hotel in the trendy Oberkampf area of Paris

room in hotel mareuil paris

In old French, “mareuil” means “glade”; a calm, peaceful leafy space. Hotel Mareuil, located in the quiet Rue de Malte, is a haven of heavenly peace, far from the noise of Paris very close to the metro station Oberkampf and a few minutes away from the place de la Republique.  The 35 rooms are well designed to provide a relaxing and contemporary environment with NightCove lamps and cocooning beds while the décor is accentuated with vibrant and warm colors.

This is also an ideal hotel to stay at if traveling with the family as they have six different communicating rooms and provide other family-friendly equipment to make the little ones comfortable (e.g. cots, tall chairs, baby-sitting services).

The Mareuil hotel takes health and well-being seriously. They have a spa and fitness centre that includes a treadmill, elliptical, vibrating power-bike and power-plate with coaching if necessary. For breakfast they offer fresh organic products and a menu of teas and high end roasted coffees, organic and fair-trade.

The location of the Mareuil is ideal for those who want to be within a few minutes walk to the Marais. The popular shopping streets of the rue du Temple and rue de Turenne are only 10 minutes away. Trendy shopping emporium and concept store, Merci, on 111 Boulevard de Beaumarchais is also a short walk from the hotel. Among the historic monuments and sights in the Marais are the Place des Vosges, Maison de Victor Hugo, Musee Carnavalet and Musee Cognacq-Jay. The latter two museums are highly recommended because they are not as crowded as the more famous museums of Paris and they allow you to enter the “hotels particuliers” (grand townhouses) of earlier times.

Room rates start at 179 EUR (low season) which is reasonable considering that many hotels in Paris that are in a worse location, charge 200 EUR and more even in the low season.
