We stayed at Jays approximately six months ago and had to come back. The first time was a quick trip while we were in London last Summer. This time we planned a longer stay and thought we could see more of Paris. We, meaning me, my wife, and two children, ages 10 and 6. It is a small hotel, kids need to be on best behavior if traveling as a family. We wanted to again experience Paris away from the big hotels and crowds and Jays fits the bill. Travel enough and all the big hotels start to look the same no matter where you are. The personal touch of such a small hotel like Jays is something very special. When I say small, that only has to do with the number of rooms, not the size of the rooms. We had two adjoining suites and more than ample space for the four of us. Each suite was well appointed and decorated to make you feel you were staying in your fine Paris apartment rather than a hotel. The bathrooms in our suites were large as well. The common areas were spacious quiet and relaxing, also well decorated. The free wifi was an added benefit. If you are considering going to Paris for a short or long trip, what are you waiting for? Go! The first time we went we were a little intimidated about navigating the city as first-timers and with kids in tow. Jays made the city accessible to us. The second time the staff at Jays were at the ready to help us explore and discover more of this wonderful city. From Jay's location it is all right there for you. Walk to great restaurants, shops, sites, through interesting neighborhoods, and the local restaurants are not tourist traps. These are mostly small restaurants where Parisians from the neighborhoods surrounding Jays are dining. Slow down, emphasize your good manners, attempt to speak some French, and you will be welcomed around Paris. For the experience we were trying to get from our trip to Paris, the value was excellent. If you are looking for big hotels with 200+ rooms, four restaurants under roof, a huge gym, a pool, tour bus stops at the foot of the hotel, Jays is not for you, but if you are looking for small boutique hotel that can get you away from the crowds and allow for you to slow life down and enjoy Paris from within a neighborhood, Jays is for you. If you have not been to Paris before and are thinking about it, you can do this. Go to Paris. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy! Thank you to Judy and the staff at Jays for a wonderful stay.
