My husband and I have been to Paris many times and often stayed in the top luxury hotels. This time we wanted to find a boutique hotel located in a genuine parisian neighborhood away from the luxury shops and restaurants that cater specifically to foreign travelers and we are delighted to have "discovered" The Hotel Secret de Paris. The neighborhood has been the up and coming area for sophisticated Parisians, especially foodies. Rue des Martyrs and rue Lepic are within walking distance of the hotel and are well known by those who look for top patisseries, boulangeries and cheese shops. I enjoyed walking the quiet streets and finding beautiful courtyard gardens at the back of the old apartment buildings typical of turn of 20th century Paris. The area is well connected by subway and bus service to the main tourist and shopping arrondissements, and taxis are easy to find at all hours. The hotel is also near the theater and music hall district but far away enough so you don't have to put up with the late night noise and traffic. Located in a small, renovated, typically Parisian apartment building, this boutique hotel is unique, for each room has a theme with a decor inspired by the City of Lights' famous landmarks, giving it a whimsical and cinematic feeling as well a very cosy, quiet atmosphere. Attention to details in the bathrooms and the rooms also make for a very comfortable stay. Breakfasts are delicious with a wide variety of choices, but we liked the croissants and pain au chocolat so much that we were never hungry enough to try all the other choices. The tea selection comes from one of the very best tea shops in France and happens to be my favorite: Le Palais des Thés.
But by far the highlight of our stay was how friendly and attentive every single member of the staff was. They made us feel like VIPs and at home, remembering all our preferences and always looking for ways to make our stay more enjoyable. Their restaurant recommendations were all excellent and the staff arranged reservations often on short notice. Every staff member is young and therefore hasn't lost the excitement and eagerness to do his or her best to please us, yet proving their efficiency and professionalism at all times. We were made to feel like old friends as well as treated like valued clients by Willman, Viorica, irina, Caroline and the rest of the team for our entire stay. Hotel Secret de Paris is a secret that we will definitely share with all our friends and favorite people.
