“Great, Funky, Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Staying at this hotel is like being part of Alice in Wonderland. It has such a funky, different design to it, and I loved it all. The rooms were clean and new, and the bathroom was beautiful. It was also in a great location in the Marais district...great shopping nearby. Love the outside how it looks like an old Boulangerie. Everything about this little hotel is great!

The hotel location is good and not far from the metro. The room size is typically small boutique style hotel in Paris. The bathroom is ok but starting to become shabby soon, if no maintenance work done in the near future.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Cute as a button place - looks like a boulangerie from the outside in that the windows have "Boulangerie" painted on them. Walking distance to Notre Dame, handy to the Metro, lotsa little restaurants around. Just a really nice location. Had a guy walking down the narrow street playing a trombone one afternoon. No idea why but it added to the charm.

Rooms are as small as you would expect of a Parisian hotel - but in our room it was not the size you noticed first but the wall paper, Garish or hip - you choose. Certainly different. Nice and v modern bathroom, tiny little elevator (I have a wife who has a fear of small elevators, the only reason I mention it).

A wonderful "honour" system at the bar - help yourself and write it down. Love it. Brekky was quite a spread for a place where you expect only a croissant and a hot chocolate to dip it in - still continental but a great spread of fruits and yoghurts and pastries.

Ultra helpful staff - directions, suggestions, taxis.

While writing a review I have gone back to change the rating from 4 to 5 dots because to be honest, I couldn't fault the place. An absolute gem. Stay there.

Dear SandDragon,

Myself and the team cannot thank you enough for such positive words about our property.
You're totally right, the trombone guy who is playing from time to time in the rue de Saintonge is the final touch of the fun, trendy and yet still very parisian atmosphere of the area.

We hope to see you again soon,
Kind Regards, LK - Assistant Manager

We found the hotel to be in a very convenient location and staffed by friendly people. It was within walking distance to a slew of interesting things, and very close to the Pompidou and the Picasso Museums. Also close to many places to eat and shop in the Marais. The decor was comfortable and nice. And the bed and pillows were comfortable. We would stay again.

We stayed in this boutique hotel upon a friend's recommendation for our last 2 nights in Paris (split the rest of time at an Air B n B flat). It is well-situated in the heart of Le Marais, convenient to various locations by walking and public transport. The staff is accommodating. The rooms are on the small side and, as other reviewers remarked, keys are heavy and if you want a shower v. a bath tub, you should request it. Nicely decorated LaCroix style, quaint, and clean, modern yet traditional, and romantic.

Dear noteztoplz,

Thanks a lot for taking the time to post a review on Tripadvisor.

It is important for us to have some feedback of our customers, and the fact that your found our hotel pretty ans stylish is delightful to hear.
Just a quick remark aboutr our old-fashion key, we are always encouraging our residents to leave the key at the reception when they go out (less heavier in the pocket and it's always nice to share a little word with our guest this way.)

We look forward to see you again in our property.

Kind Regards, LK - Assistant Manager

Design hotel in the heart of the Marais. Near some very nice shops, art galleries, restaurants and bars. Very nice staff. Breakfast was really bad though and the Internet connection was slow as in most European hotels. We booked the deluxe room and it was very spacious. Overall it was a very nice stay.
