Le Relais du Marais is one of the most booked budget gay-friendly hotels in Paris. It is located a bit north of the Marais, but still within easy walking distance of its gay bars, clubs, and shops. It’s also just a short 5-minute walk of Apollo Theatre, which regularly hosts many beloved gay parties such as EXCITE, MENERGY, and La Nuit des Follivores. Trou Aux Biches, another popular gay dance party, is held at Le Java, about ten minutes further down the road from Apollo.
The hotel itself is no-frills, offering overall good value for money. The rooms are modern and well-designed but some are looking a bit tired in places. They are, however, comfortable and always perfectly clean. The rooms are also quite small, even for Parisian standards, but this is to be expected for the price you pay in such a good location.
This is a good choice if you are on a budget, want to stay centrally, and just need a clean, cozy place to lie your head at night.
