“The epitome of Parisian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

Ok so I actually went in May 2011. This hotel is a must see. It looks just like its pictures and is in a very safe neighborhood filled with restaurants and bars you can safely stumble back from :) The guest services people are not the nicest although the bell boy was very attentive. I would absolutely recommend this place and especially if you are a couple looking for a romantic evening. I stayed in the room with the trompe l'oeil backdrop of the reddish pink with gold applique design. I think this is the best room. They are all different and very well done. I was expecting to be disappointed since the pictures were so great but it lived up to its expectations. However please note that the place can be a little difficult to find since it is a smaller hotel on a hill with windy cobble stone roads. Be sure you bring your camera here too. You will be kicking yourself if you don't get pictures of this place. Especially the elevator. Do note that check in times are pretty strict and it took a while for my room to be ready.

Room Tip: Ask for the red room with the gold applique trompe l'oeil backdrop and the large bathtub. This r...

Great little hotel in the heart of the marais, 5 min walk to the metro. My only complaint is the bathroom has no shower and had only a bath with no screen and a hand held shower head so water always went everywhere. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed our last 2 nights in Paris at this hotel, which was recommended by friends. The decor was lovely, the service was great and the breakfast was perfect. Perhaps one of the best parts of this hotel is the location. The Marais is my favorite district and the hotel is located in walking distance of everything in the Marais.

Every aspect of this hotel is above average: large rooms decorated by Lacroix (or his team or in his style--but certainly in a very Parisian style), an ideal marais location, and Hermes bath products. The beds are great and I'd say the quality/size of rooms is very good value in Pairs.

A few things that keep it from excellence:
-terrible wifi (very weak when it can be picked up)
-my room wasn't served by the elevator (take it to the 3rd floor and then walk up a set of stairs)
-my room had a couple of skylights and only one had a shade so it was impossible to make the room dark
-breakfast is fine, but not special. Instead of eating in the hotel, try one of these
-marche des enfants rouges (a lovely market a block away)
-Patisserie Pain de Sucre (exceptional patisserie good for breakfast lunch or a sweet)

Room Tip: Because this hotel has only 17 rooms and is located in two quirky buildings, be sure to let the hote...

This is a fascinating hotel with real charm. It is in a wonderful and vibrant area of the city, with so many fantastic bard and restaurants. But the hotel is the main attraction. It is small, and interesting. The rooms are absolutely beautiful, we have stayed here three times and each time we look forward to seeing which of their wonderful rooms we have. The price is very reasonable for Paris, and it simply would not occur to me to stay anywhere else in Paris. I recommend the hotel highly.

Small but perfectly formed hotel, good sized rooms and bathrooms (for Paris) and immaculately decorated.
The hotel is in a wonderful position down a pretty Parisian side street within easy walking distance of good restaurants and bars. Paris metro is walkable, Gare du Nord and the river are not far either (15 min walk).
We travelled to see a band (The Shins) in the nearby La Bataclan which was a five minute walk away but would stay here again irrespective of the reason for the visit.
If you have stayed in Paris before and overpaid for an average hotel, do yourself a huge favour and stay here next time it will not disappoint.

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor without any noise or light polution, so I would imagine that all rooms...
