“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Wow! How could one not think of Paris as the city of love after staying at 'One by the Five'? If you want to experience the romance of this fine city, may I suggest that this is the place to make it happen. Two nights will leave you with a feeling of total detachment from the real world and allow you to explore and experience all 6 senses (yes 6). All is tastefully explained to you upon arrival and then the rest is up to you. Simply amazing.

We spent the first two nights of our honeymoon in the One by the Five... everything about it was simply perfect. The rooms are amazing... we were like kids in a sweet shop running round switching the different lighting effects on and off and touching all the beautiful fabrics....the bed was incredible and gave us both the best nights sleep we have ever had, the breakfasts delicious and all the extra unexpected touches were fantastic. Tanya and the team went out of their way to ensure our stay here (and then for the night after at The Five itself) was totally unforgettable and for that we cannot thank them enough....we cant wait to return.

Dear Amy B,

We are happy to read that you completely felt into the Five Spirit. It is all about the Five Senses... Lights effects, delicate fabrics, candies and breakfast, and all the others touches.

It was a honor that you choose The Five Hotel for such an occasion!!! And it will still be a pleasure for your next trip in the city of Love!

Best Parisian Regards

The entire Five Team

We ended up in One by the Five completely by accident -- a computer glitch with Jetsetter allowed us to book a room at the Seven when the hotel was actually full, so we were moved to the sister property. Even that experience was as I would expect a hotel to manage it -- when we arrived for check-in it was obvious there was some problem, but we were treated to complimentary breakfast, told to leave our things in the lobby, and assured that everything would be taken care of. When we came back in the evening, our luggage had already been moved and we were in for the best surprise of the trip!

As others have mentioned One by the Five is a private apartment with an atmosphere fully devoted to love and romance. Possibly because we were staying in a 900+ Euro room that we'd only paid $150 Euros for, we didn't get the complimentary champagne and fruit, but it was nonetheless a treat.

I can understand some of the complaints that the decor is just "too much"... I would definitely recommend One by the Five for a romantic getaway of 1 or 2 days, but it could be overkill for an extended period of time. However, our one night was so lovely and comfortable that we completely skipped the plans we'd made for the morning to stay in. The bed is without a doubt the most comfortable I've EVER slept (or done anything else) on.

The only hitch was that once the hotel staff left after showing us how to use the ridiculously complicated TV-iPod-lighting room controls, we couldn't get any of it to work again, except the lighting after a whole lot of fiddling. But honestly, the point of One by the Five is NOT to watch satellite TV!

We stayed in the One by the Five for two nights and had a lovely romantic break from the rest of life. The suite is part of a hotel however it is in a separate building and so you are completely left to your own devices - your only interruption will be your breakfast being delivered at a time of your convenience (TIP: Make sure you have already unwrapped the bath robes for when the door-bell rings as they will keep ringing and you will end up fighting with your bath-robe) :)

One by the Five is designed to make you think about just the two of you and it really does achieve that well. From the champagne in the fridge, to your own private dance floor, to the cocktail receipes, to Edith Piaf and Barry White on the ipod (they have a really great selection of music tracks), to the bedroom and rain shower - it really is fabulous....and great fun.

It is expensive at 940 Euros per night (includes breakfast, the champagne, the fresh fruit in the fridge, the spirits and bottles of water) but it was really worth it and if you want to treat your spouse/partner/partner to be to something special then this is something they won't forget.

The staff were great, extremely welcoming and have great recommendations for local places in the Latin Quarter - they really help to make your visit perfect (thanks to all for such a great stay).

.....and on final note, the bed is probably the most comfortable we have ever slept in...you never want to leave.

My husband and I spent the best nights of our life in the One by the Five Hotel. The experience is so unique, so amazing... it looks like in a dream or a fairy tale. As soon as you enter in the lounge, the first impression is WOW!
And you get in the bedromm, you say « Oh My God, how magnificent is it!!! » The One's interior decoration will you make serene and all your daily anxieties will definitely move away from you.
You can admire the Parisian starry sky in privacy in your own bedroom, while you have the impression to float on your magic bed in weightlessness. The mattress is so comfortable: you could be unable to leave your room to visit the city.
Personnel very professional
Love feeling, love atmosphere, LOVE and romanticism: welcome to Paris, welcome to the One! You will LOVE it!

We have tried quite few nice upscale hotels but this one is definitely worth trying. Behind an unappealing facade, start an amazing journey. In a typical parisian district, we felt far from everything. The One is THE place for couples looking for an escape, far from the reality of life, looking for complete privacy and above all an amazing experience. I can't say everything about this place as it has to be a bit of surprise, but let say it is the ideal place for a wedding proposal, for a honeymoon or just for a dirty weekend far far from the screaming kids. The design is great, the fittings are luxurious, the bed is a dream, everything has been created to create a one off experience. It is like being in your bubble, the two of you. and if you need a break, Paris is on your doorstep and its restaurants, bars, nightlife etc... So all in all we had an amazing time and we can only recommend this place for couples like us just looking to get away from it all.
If you are looking for a hotel with a difference, this is definitely for you and you will not regret it.
