“A wonderful find”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We stayed in Petit Paris for a short break. Hotel is beautifully designed and immaculate. Rooms although small are very comfortable with great shower and lovely fairy lights. We also had a balcony overlooking the rooftops of Paris. The location is ideal a short walk to Notre Dame and the left bank of the Seine. Lots of cafes and restaurants round about for watching the world go by. Karim was a great help shark his local knowledge and hints and tips on how to spend your time in Paris. Nothing was too much bother. Lovely sitting area with free tea and coffee and honesty bar in the evening although there is so much to do in Paris your time is limited in the hotel. Would definitely visit this hotel again.

My friend and I stayed four nights at Hotel le Petit Paris at the end of June 2013 and were very happy there. Karim and Alexandra at the desk were very friendly and helpful to us.

I found the room to be lovely. The hotel had undergone a renovation three years prior to our stay. Every available space in the double room was used in an efficient and clever fashion. Each side of the bed had its own tiny bedside space with light and a closet.

The bathroom was the best thing about the room: the beautiful shower was outfitted with tiny lights in the tiles, repeated in the tiles over the lavatory. When this lighting was used alone, it created the effect of a starry sky.

The lobby has a very modern and attractive design. I highly recommend this friendly and comfortable hotel. I intend to stay there again on my next trip to Paris.

Room Tip: The breakfast is wonderful, but you can save money by having breakfast down the street at a café. I...

We recently spent about a week in Paris, staying at this hotel. The location was very good, about 8 minutes walk from the Pantheon and 15 minutes from Notre Dame. As it is near the Sorbonne, there are many good restaurants and brasseries catering to the students, so prices are reasonable. We passed on the rather pricey breakfast offering at the hotel, and found many good options nearby for a tasty, much less expensive petite dejeuner. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The property is either new or has been very recently renovated, as all the furniture, plumbing, etc. was very up-to-date. The bathroom sparkled, although there was limited countertop/shelf space, and though the glass shower "curtain" was sleek and good-looking, it didn't really prevent water going everywhere when one took even a very cautious shower. (Staff helpfully provided extra bath mats to soak up the overflow.) The room is tiny, which is very typical of Paris hotels at this price point, but it is well-organized and has handy built-ins, with a tiny fridge and in-room safe in the combination closet/cabinet, and there were two large windows, which made it seem a bit more spacious. The decor of our room was a little wacky, with its uber-modern padded bubble headboard and chrome bedside lamps. Based on the website, their more expensive rooms are a bit more traditionally furnished. Two big plusses: it is air-conditioned (which was wonderful since Paris was unseasonably hot) AND it has a modern lift -- no lugging heavy suitcases up three flights of stairs. We would certainly return to this hotel, but would probably upgrade to one of the more traditional rooms.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the courtyard, so it was very quiet, but since the hotel allows smoking in the c...

Hotel Le Petit is a find. My wife and I stayed here for 9 nights in September. I have contemplated not writing a review since the property is so special, and wanted to keep it to ourselves. We stayed here a couple years back for a few nights on vacation and when business brought us to Paris we knew we had to stay at Hotel Le Petit again. In my opinion the hotel is located in great area, with a mix of tourists and locals. If you are looking for the commercialism of a Sheraton or Hilton this is not the hotel for you but if you want the experience of staying at a property which gives you the feel of staying in a Paris apartment then you have found the right place. Our room was located facing St Jacques and I was concerned we would hear the road noise and it was not an issue since the windows are double-glazed. Bed and linens are very comfortable, internet was free and speed was acceptable. Staff was very helpful with all requests, from booking restaurant reservations to helping with Velib. We found the balcony a great place to have some wine and relax after a long day.
We will definitely be back.

Le Petit Paris is a superb place to stay situated in the Latin quarter close to many restaurants, cafes and tourist attractions such as the Pantheon, Notre Dame and the Luxembourg Gardens. It is also close to the Metro line so getting around Paris is easy. The hotel is beautifully appointed and staff are friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful with excellent English. Alexandra, Pascal and Karim were all generous with their time and information and we were able to ask their help with finding excellent restaurants, shopping, getting to and from places and learning about Parisian etiquette. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Le Petit Paris and the hotel is a real gem. We have no hesitation recommending Le Petit Paris and will stay again if we get a chance to get back to Paris.

Our trip to Paris was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary we booked the hotel based on tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed.

Great location not in the main tourist area but within easy walking distance from the lovely Luxembourg gardens, Pantheon, Notre Dame, with the Luxembourg RER connection round the corner which is on a direct line to both airports and rest of Paris.

Hotel Le Petit Paris is definitely a Boutique hotel the hotels title gives you a clue about its size, we booked a superior room which was lovey very quiet, clean and comfortable. It is tastefully decorated throughout and very very cute and has a chilled atmosphere great to return to after the hustle and bustle of being tourists for the day. We liked that you could relax in the lounge or terrace helping yourself to a good selection of tea,and coffee (Nespresso) as required. They also had a honesty bar in the evenings with selection of wines beers and not forgetting that you have free Wifi throughout.

But one of the most important elements of a good hotel is the staff you can have it all going on but the way you are treated is key to your stay. The staff all that we met were great very natural not at all pretentious or false in anyway, they were always more than happy to help. Alexandra was lovely we didn't have anything booked and she help us with great places to eat her recommendations were spot on.

A lovely hotel without a doubt we will stay here again tres tres bon.

Room Tip: Rooms are small if possible book superior.

I stayed at this gorgeous petit hotel 4 years ago when it had been open for 2 weeks. At the time, the hotel and service were fabulous. As it now has different owners, I was happy to find that it is even better if that's possible. My husband and I have just stayed here for 8 nights in August and again for 3 nights in Sept. We rate Hotel Le Petit Paris very highly because of the location, the gorgeous boutique design, the size of our room (the family room was a great choice this time) and also for the fantastic staff. Karim, Alexandra and Saed were so welcoming, attentive and professional - they really do go out of their way to ensure that guests are well looked after. The lovely lady who served breakfast was also always warm, cheerful and could not do enough to ensure our comfort. The small lounge, bar, breakfast and patio areas are well thought out and nicely designed. We have seen many grand hotels in Paris but can't imagine staying anywhere else. Our beautiful holiday in France was greatly enhanced by having Le Petit to come home to each night. To the owners and staff at Hotel Le Petit Paris we say 'merci beaucoup - a bientot'.
