「Small street with bars and restaurants and lots of people in evenings」
Went there just incidentally. I was surprised by amounts of people present. The bars and restaurants were quite occupied and many of the visitors were just staying and chatting in the street. I think that this is a good place if you are looking for night life and some adventure.
What a smart fantastic hotel to open in the chic Bastille district. This would have to be my new favorite hotel in Paris and I have stayed in many of them. Service, service and more great service. Right from the start with a very early check in and the concierge explaining the room too the super cool restaurant to relax...
