“Wonderful stay, lovely staff, gorgeous decor”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

We stayed ten nights for our 20th Anniversary and were treated to some of the best service and hospitality I have experienced anywhere. Vi and William deserve special mention as they were so helpful and friendly. The hotel was small and yet afforded us the ultimate in privacy as we rarely saw other guests. The decor was gorgeous (I loved the fresh flowers during the day and candles at night). Vi gave us the option to stay in different rooms and so we tried the Musee d'Orsay, the Trocadero and the Artist's Studio - all were outstanding in their own right and had amazingly comfortable beds and pillows with lovely soft towels in the bathroom. The extra special touches - like when we found beautiful Easter eggs in our room on Easter Sunday - made this the stand out hotel it is.

Room Tip: All rooms have sound proofing from the street so are exceptionally quiet and all of the rooms on the...

Stayed here for 4 nights for my wife's birthday. What a good choice of hotel, having last been to Paris over 40 years ago!
Firstly, the staff could not have been more friendly or professional. Nothing was too much, from booking taxis and the theatre, translating with excellent English (although I did try).
A gift for my wife in our room on her birthday - a lovely touch - and a glass of champagne each while waiting for our taxi for our night river cruise and meal.
The room was very comfortable and classily themed with a lovely bathroom.
We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to any of our friends and family.
Great central location too.
Regards to all the staff.

Just spent 3 nights in this fabulous hotel and everything was perfect. The staff are unbelievably friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. If you want to visit any of the famous sights then ask the staff to arrange it for you and they use a very good company and your tickets are delivered right to your hotel so you avoid all the long queues. The rooms are spotlessly clean and we loved the mood lighting - so romantic! The hotel was also very quiet at night- no doors slamming or noisy guests returning late at night and even though we were next to the lift we never heard it at all. Also made use of the sauna - ask the staff and they will switch it on for you and it only takes 20 minutes to heat up - excellent after a long day walking.
Didn't have breakfast in the hotel as there are a lot of local cafes and also many bistro's for evening meals within a few moments walk. But did have late night drinks in the bar and this was delightfully served by the staff.
When we return to Paris this hotel is top of our list - must remember to book early as it is very popular.
Thank you to all the staff for making our stay so fantastic.

Room Tip: Had a Musee d'Orsey room - loved the clock and the bathroom.

This boutique hotel is a delight. Small in size but huge in customer service and satisfaction.
We stayed here three nights. Each of them enjoying one of their nicely designed rooms.
We have been treated with love and care since we stopped by the reception and William, at the front desk, explained us the secrets of the hotel with a very warm welcome. A place to recommend. A place we'll get back.

My family recently spent 4 nights at this hotel. We wanted to avoid a big box hotel and have something a little more local and unique. This fit the bill. Thought the rooms are small they are very well decorated and appointed…..all have different Paris themes. The folks working the front desk also spoke great English and were always very helpful. Location is good and close to the Metro. The rooms are probably directed more at adults as my teenage boys thought they were geared a bit more for adults, but they thought they were funny.

Room Tip: All seemed good to us. They let you move to other rooms if your stay is long enough to experience t...

This hotel is in a good location near the Opera and is a great choice in Paris. We stayed in the Artist's Garret on the top floor and found a good sized room, very quiet, with a comfortable bed and nicely appointed bathroom. The free wi-fi was excellent. The staff at this hotel though are what really sets it apart, they were all smiling and helpful, always looking for ways they could enhance your stay. Upon noticing our return one evening with a bottle of wine, they immediately offered wine glasses and then supplied a plate of nuts as well, for no charge. There was also a gift in the form of a chocolate easter egg filled with delicious chocolates from one of the best chocolate shops in Paris.The breakfast was of top quality, with good coffee, juices, cereals, fruit, yoghurts, cold meats, cheeses, smoked salmon, croissants, baguettes, cake and eggs to order. All the supplies were replenished before they could run out and the staff were genuinely warm and helpful.
The only thing I would have liked extra would be tea/coffee making facilities in the room. When you wake up jet-lagged at 4am, it's a long wait for a coffee in the morning! All in all, this hotel is not cheap, but is good value for money, and we'd certainly stay here again.

This is by far the BEST hotel I've ever stayed in. Firstly, for a small boutique hotel they've really maximised on the design and stylish decor and 'secret' concept of the themed rooms. Very sophisticated, gorgeous and sexy rooms that are super clean and so damn comfortable! You WANT to get back to the hotel after a hard days sightseeing. Its such a pleasure to stay in that you dont want to leave! But most importantly, the staff at this hotel are the epitome of excellence and professional service. Every request is met with an eagerness to please, and so very helpful and detailed in their assistance. I cannot fault this hotel. They made every day such a pleasure, and I couldn't wait to write this review. Thank you to all the staff at the hotel, you made our time in Paris so memorable!
