“Fairly good but lacked panache”
Reviewed June 5, 2005

We stayed three days. The location was fairly central and reasonably close to the Metro. The B&B does however face a small shopping centre which seemed to attract some undesirable visitors. A bit intimidating and the heavy lock system on the front door may reflect security issues.

The owner was fairly friendly but perhaps a little standoffish. Once inside the front door there is a tiny lobby at the base of the stairs. There was no space to leave luggage, even for five minutes, so we had to take it straight from the car up two flights of narrow stairs. We had several large cases so were exhausted by the time we finally settled in. The B&B doesn't have a guest lounge.

The room and ensuite were dramatically painted throughout in pillarbox red. The furniture looked smart but was basic and not very comfortable. The TV was a very small portable and with only an indoor aerial had poor reception.

The breakfast was a bit of a farce as there was only a table and seating for six people yet there were seven guests! The great appeal was that the B&B was vegetarian but the breakfasts were a bit on the heavy side. Wholesome and, no doubt, good for the bowels.

Conclusion. Fair location. Lacking in communal space. Only the fit could climb the narrow stairs with luggage. Breakfast was filling but heavy. Nothing special but could be so much better with a little improvement in comfort.

Stayed August 2004

My wife and I have just returned from an eleven day visit to Toronto, and had the pleasure of staying with Paul-Antoine and Michelle at Au Petit Paris. Paul-Antoine was an attentive, accommodating and friendly host, his breakfasts were filling and very well presented at his communal table. Our biggest problem was leaving the table that we shared with the other guests, and on most mornings (after preparing and serving the hot course) with Paul-Antoine himself! An engaging host, Paul-Antoine is a well travelled and knowledgeable person, it was a pleasure to spend time in his company.

Our comfortable and spacious room was well appointed, complete with a large bathroom. Au Petit Paris displayed all the characteristics that we expect of a privately owned B&B, excellent atmosphere, clean and very comfortable with a relaxing style that delivers a high standard of customer care. We would highly recommend Au Petit Paris to anyone who prefers the personal touches, homeliness and comfort of a B&B to the bland anonymity of the larger hotels.
