Every now and then you stumble upon a hotel that meets and exceeds one's expectations, and becomes the place you can't stop bragging about to friends and colleagues. The Millesime Hotel is just such a place.
If you're looking for a roomy, comfortable boutique hotel within the heart of Paris, this is it. Located in the trendy 6th Arrondissement, the site is close to a host of cafes, restaurants, bars, bakeries, bistros, chocolatiers, art dealers, jewelry makers, clothing and accessory shops, and much, much more.
My spouse and I stayed at the Millesime Hotel for four nights in early January 2013. The hotel has a variety of rooms, as well as a suite. We were housed in Room 4 one of the three "classic rooms" off the interior courtyard, which was splendid. The room was indeed spacious by Parisian style, and the bathroom is huge. I mean REALLY big. If you've experienced the broom-closet rooms of Paris in the past, you'll be amazed by the size of the rooms at Millesime.
Two oddities to note about Room 4: It has no windows (but ample lights pours through the glass-paneled door and the transom window above it), and the sleeping area has no mirrors (though the bathroom sports three mirrors, including a full-length mirror behind the bathroom door).
Breakfast, which includes a selection of meats, cheeses, breads, yogurt, cereal, juices, milk and hot drinks, is located in the basement of the hotel, though room service is also available for those who prefer to have breakfast in bed.
The staff at the hotel is superb. They are well versed with the ins and outs of the Parisian lifestyle, and go beyond the call to address a guest's needs. A special thanks goes to Valerio and Inga, who helped with every aspect of our stay, including arranging transportation to and from the airport, securing a gift of flowers and a box of chocolates, and recommending a host of superb restaurants to try.
One tip: Be certain to checkout Au 35, a French restaurant on rue Jacob -- just a few blocks from the hotel -- that offers an amazing dining experience.
In short, if you're thinking about booking a room at the Millesime, do so without hesitation because you'll be treated royally by a great group of people.
