“Comfortable Boutique Hotel in Paris”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

We booked this Hotel last minute (a week before) based on the Trip Advisor reviews. The location is excellent and the surrounding area has everything - great Cafes and Restaurants. The room was Parisian small, but very comfortable. The beds were 'Coco Mat' beds and extremely comfortable. Thoroughly recommended.

Stayed July 2012, traveled as a couple

Hidden Hotel is situated 4-5 minutes walk from Arc De Triomphe which made it ideal in terms of location and very handy if you get lost as all stations lead here. The hotel itself is as the name suggests, hidden away amongst a quiet up-market Parisian district which and very safe, even when walking around late at night.

The hotel appears small outside as it's masked with leaves and squeezed in-between apartment buildings but once inside it offers plenty of space. We stayed in the 'Exception' room which offered the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on (made of coconut shredding), very good air conditioning, front views of the street, an open plan style room with a rain shower (water falls from overhead) and a very clean and well maintained bathroom.

There is a digital safe in the room for valuables and water is refreshed each day when the beds are made. When in need of information the staff are very helpful and accommodated all our needs very well.

We stayed for 4 nights and I would highly recommend this hotel for a couple looking for a nice getaway, the breakfasts in the morning are very nice but expensive and we often decided to walk to a cafe in front of the AD'T which offered the same breakfast for half the price.

This hotel is excellent for anyone who appreciates design, attention to detail and something a bit different. It's not traditionally Parisian but you only need to look out the windows to remind yourself of where you are!

Excellent hotel which we'd both return to in a heartbeat (and plan to next year!)

Room Tip: Go for the exception room if you can, we were shown around the rooms when we got there by the owner...

Lovely hotel in perfect hidden location. We stayed in a Sensation room which was nice just a little small (although European rooms are). Would ideally have preferred a fridge in room, bigger toilet room and sky news (all TV channels are in French). We recommend to other travellers.

Our stay at the Hidden Hotel made our first visit to Paris simply amazing. We researched many hotels and were attracted to the decor, the location and the amenities. The Hidden Hotel did not disappoint. The property is beautifully decorated with a zen quality which makes it a welcome respite from a long day sight-seeing in the hustle and bustle of Paris- yet it's in the heart of everything and very close to a Metro station. The breakfast was to-die-for with amazing pastries, cheeses, meats, fruits, organic granola and yogurt. AMAZING coffee and juices. The food is FRESH. Our room was very well-appointed and very comfortable with a fantastic air-conditioning system. The hotel is also very secure for guests, which I would recommend for anyone traveling, but especially single women. The staff was so helpful and friendly. We would not stay anywhere else when visiting Paris and look forward to the day when we can return- last, but not least, the bed was so comfortable that I cannot recall when we have slept better (even at home)

I stayed at Hidden for 4 nights in July 2012. I researched hotels in Paris a fair bit before booking. I was not disappointed. I was there on business, but also managed to visit Paris every day. The hotel staff was friendly and courteous. The decor is modern and cool. The rooms are extremely comfortable. There are great beds, plenty of water pressure, and working A/C. The rooms are small, which is standard in Paris, but the use of space is very nice. The shower/sink opens into the room (toilet is closed off), which is fine for solo travelers or couples. The location is superb. You are within walking distance of the Arc, Champs Elysees, Palais des congres, Air France shuttle, and many other things. This neighborhood is actually reasonably calm and quiet, which was quite welcome after walking through throngs of tourists just about everywhere else in Paris. Only complaint is the lack of iron/ironing board (only one for the hotel, which they tried very hard to get for me). They could buy a couple more. Breakfast is excellent, although not cheap. There are tons of nearby boulangeries if you prefer to get your croissant and espresso elsewhere.

I will definitely be back.

If you are reading this and considering a stay in Paris, don't spend time looking for anywhere else; stay at the Hidden Hotel. Unique, quirky, spotless and eco-conscious. A place that felt like it had a soul rather than most other faceless hotel.

Firstly the location is in a small street just 2 minutes walk from Etoile Metro (take the Avenue Carnot exit) so really easy to get around from there. Just around the corner are some very buzzy bars and restaurants so everything on the doorstep and the Arc de Triomphe and Champ Elysee just 5 minutes walk.

The decor in the reception was rustic, lovely wood, stone, linen materials - felt very homely and stylish that made me feel like I could be in Provence than the centre of the city. I was greeted by a nice chap who spoke perfect English (no chance to practice my French!), he was rather rushed as the phone didn't stop ringing but showed me to the next door building where my room was. Slightly odd being next door but he explained that they were just doing an extension and it wasn't quite finished yet. My room (408) was beautiful. Only small, as all Paris hotels are, but very cleverly designed. There is a huge bed with the most divine crisp bed linen and beautiful muslin drapes around it. The shower was an absolute dream with a seat inside and rainfall shower head made it very hard to get out. The room was so spotless I felt like i could have been the first person to ever sleep in it. There were lovely touches like scented tissues, gorgeous smellies and a massive TV.

To summarise why you should stay here:

modern but rustic style made the atmosphere very homely
spotlessly clean
the shower (and the body lotion to use afterwards)
the bed + the bed linen - you'll read about their eco-matt on their website
location close to Metro (yellow line)
room smelt gorgeous
quality fixtures and quirky designer furniture
eco-credentials
lovely staff (thank you for arranging an early breakfast for me)
quality TV
great temperature room - not too hot on a very sticky night
crockery for breakfast was amazing - I so want to know where that's from!

To balance it out there were just a few little niggles:

they only have 3 irons and they were all loaned when I asked for one - in a 4* property I expect to be able to get an iron in the room
I asked to borrow an adaptor plug and whilst they had a selection none were English to French!
the TV didn't have ANY English channels which again in a 4* I expect. The handbook said you could select International channels on the remote but my remote was completely different without that selection option
the soundproofing on the windows is not great. Even though I was on the 4th floor on a quiet street there were a few lorries around in the night and I didn't expect to hear noise.

I recommend this hotel to anyone without hesitation. Sadly I was staying alone on business, but can't wait to go back and share with my boyfriend as it is a very romantic place.

Room Tip: My room was 408 in the extension, an Emotion room - definitely recommend.
