Stayed in this little gem on Valentine's day a coulpe of days ago....it was fantastic! Perfect spot for the lovers, ideal location to hang around in Le Marais which is a great spot for restaurants, bistrots, galleries and shopping. The staff was so kind, nothing was too much trouble for them. The place is like a little doll house, every... More

The hotel is really nice, a good buotique hotel in a cool area of Paris. Room size is above average for Paris, but still small. Everything was ok, I was just expecting something more "WOW" on the Lacroix intervention in the room, but still the hotel is reccomandable

A very chic hotel in the well-known Marais neighborhood. Close to a lot of interesting places, like St. Paul, Picasso Museum or the Rue des Rosiers. The rooms are decorated by Lacroix and are very chic. We stayed in 303, where the mirrors create a magical ambiance. The rooms are well isolated, so we could rest without being disturbed by... More

Since the Haut Marais and the 3rd arrondisement is getting so trendy, I thought this would be the perfect spot for a few days. And it was. It was a little confusing finding the main entrance since they have retained the original old bakery doors, very charming. Excellent staff that are knowledgeable, helpful and thoughtful. Since the streets are so... More

Dear Cincytravelqueen, First of all, we would like to thank you for leaving a note about your impressions as regards our hotel. Indeed, pretty often, our guests and taxi drivers don't easily find the entrance of the hotel as everybody thinks that it is still a bakery. This front door is all the history of our hotel, it means a... More

Hotel du Petit Moulin came highly recommended to us by a Parisian friend. The photos on the website are a bit deceiving. The hotel was perfectly nice but showing signs of fading and shabbiness, a bit worn around the edges. We were spoiled as we'd just come from Grand Hotel Bordeaux and l'hostellerie de plaisance in St. Emilion, both luxury... More

This hotel has a fantastic location, right in the heart of le Marais, from the outside it looks like a boulangerie and then inside it is all colour and quirk! Room size is good for Paris with a spotless bathroom. The honesty bar in the evening is then the breakfast room in the morning, with white linen table cloths. Breakfast... More

Dear Bouchfred, We would like to say "merci" for your nice comment. Indeed, Hotel du Petit Moulin looks like a bakery because it used to be.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
