“Wonderful Bouitque Hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We just loved our time at Secret de Paris. It was a great place to come "home" to after a long day of sightseeing. The place is immaculately cleaned, with a modern feel. The front staff is wonderful. Especially one of the night staff - Marco. Marco was so welcoming and accommodating.

The rooms are larger than what you would expect in Paris (but still much smaller than "typical" American rooms - just get over it, you are in a foreign country :-P). Yes, the divider between the bathroom and the bedroom is glass (not clear, but still). However, they have fantastic bathrooms down on the -1 level (where the complimentary gym, sauna, and steam rooms are). We would use those when needed. The rooms appear to be sound proof - I never heard any noise.

While I was just staying with a friend, the overall feel/look of the rooms would be great for couples. Its very close to a Metro station.

We decided to spend a little more on our Paris stay, and it was well worth the money.
The hotel is just as nice in reality as it is in the pictures, and expecting a tiny room I was pleasantly surpised by the size of our room.
The staff of the hotel were exeptional, they were very kind and welcoming, and couldn't do enough to help you with whatever questions you might have.
We find the location very practical as situated in the center of Paris with easy connections with the tube and within walking distance of POI such as Le Louvre, L'Opéra, Place Vendôme or Faubourg St Honoré.
In all, we can't recommend Secret De Paris highly enough and haven't stopped raving about it to our friends. It made our stay in Paris so special. We have no hesitation in saying that it is where we will stay next time we visit Paris.

High standard, clean, great service, nicely decorated, close to metro and i love that the sauna, hammam, gym are included (gym could have at least a few more tools though). We stayed in the opera room which was lovely - loved the bubble bath in the bathroom.
Would strongly recommend and would happily return.

Nice boutique hotel in centre of Paris. Only minor niggle was that entire wall between bathroom and bedroom was glass, so complete privacy (if you want it) is impossible. On plus side has a small gym (2 cycle machines, 1 running machine, 1 cross trainer in basement) and sauna, both of which are open 24x7

Dear William,

It is lovely to read that you enjoyed your experience with us and thank you for highlighting our central and convenient location.

It is true that our walls between the bathroom and the bedroom are made of glass. However, full privacy is guaranteed until a certain height and the level of transparency varies according the concept you are staying in. We would have been delighted to show you other concepts with less transparency, should you have informed us of your discomfort.
We hope to have the pleasure of doing so during your next visit to Paris!

Warm regards,
Caroline Canny

We stayed here on the last 2 nights of our time in Paris, in the Musee D'Orsay room. I was pleasantly surprised that the room was larger than I expected, after reading reviews on the tiny room sizes, the bathroom was amazing (hydrojet bath! - only issue was a design flaw in that the tiny glass panel to stop the water going everywhere when you shower, wasn't really wide enough to stop it doing so, hence we had to use quite a few hand towels to mop up water on the bathroom floor) Bed was comfortable, Tv was great, had room service one night and that was good too. Can't fault it.
Location was easy - walked to everywhere in Montmartre, 2 Metro stations within a 5minute walk, walkable down to Saint Lazarre station and Galeries Lafayette.
Staff are friendly and helpful
We enjoyed our stay at Secret de Paris!

It was our pleasure to welcome you under the monumental clock of the Orsay Museum!
I am thrilled that the size of your room exceeded your expectation and how wonderful that you enjoyed your hydro-massage bathtub so much.

I will certainly pass on your nice comment to the team!

I stayed here last year for 2 nights and thought it was absolutely fantastic. We had a Moulin Rouge room and it was amazing. They are a fair size with enormous beds and amazing features and its only a 15minute walk to the Seine where you can buy a boat ticket that takes you to all the sites. The hotel is up a slight hill but we quite enjoyed the walks and the staff were extremely helpful. The hotel has a great atmosphere to it and i would thoroughly recommend it!

My wife and me spent four days in this hotel back in August for our anniversary and loved it. We choose the Eiffel Tower room for the first two nights and then they let us try the Moulin Rouge room for the second two. The rooms aren't huge but they what they lack in size they make up in style and stylish they are. The hotel itself is in a good location near Montmatre and Place de Clichy metro and walking distance to Moulin Rouge. The staff were very helpful and called restaurants to book tables for us and recommended a few too, although we generally found our own. Two we would recommend are the Le Relais de la Butte which has a great outside area with a good view over the city and generally good for people watching. The food and wine were reasonable and the service friendly. The other is Chez Plumeau, but only if you can brave the stairs but the climb is worth it as the food was great and the setting excellent. All in all the hotel was clean and tidy and the staff helpful. The rooms are small but amazing and who stays in their hotel when you are in Paris anyway! Don't eat or drink in the Place de Clichy, it's extortionate, find a little side street or cafe, that's whar Paris is all about!

Room Tip: Ask at reception to see is you can try a different room, it's worth it.
