Boutique hotel, with some individual designs and dcorations all over the place. The room had enough space and was well equiped - although ours only had a hand held shower on the bath. The staff were excellent - friendly, efficient and very helpful to find places to eat. Breakfast was a simple, light affair that hit the spot.

My husband and I attended a nearby concert and needed a room for one night. We chose Petit Moulin based on the reviews here and expected a decent, comfortable stay in our "chambre confort" room. In fact, our brief stay was so wonderful, I hated to leave in the morning. The charming original Boulangerie exterior indicated good things could be found inside (our taxi driver was reluctant to drop us off as he was sure it wasn't a hotel).
We were in room no. 4, which is on the ground floor behind Reception. Initially, I was nervous about potential noise from the lobby and the street. But the room is behind two heavy doors and there are double windows on the street side - we didn't hear a peep. The bathroom was thoroughly modernized with lovely Hermes bath products. We enjoyed a delicious glass of brut champagne in our room from the honor bar (it's true, the little bar area is quite charming). The room decor was fab and the bed was luxurious and comfortable. Staff was low key and helpful. We're not breakfast eaters, but ordered coffee for the room. It was probably the best coffee I've had in a Paris hotel. We moved to a different hotel for the rest of the stay. In retrospect, I wish we'd booked at Petit Moulin for our entire trip.

Quirky, colourful hotel, with wonderful staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in Room No. 103, a Superieur room with a bath. For a Paris hotel room this was quite spacious. The bath was fab. We chose this hotel due to reviews on Tripadvisor and were very happy with our choice. We slept well. Several good restaurants within walking distance.
We have stayed in Paris a number of times and this has become one of our favourite area's to stay in.

Lovely hotel - very helpful staff. Simple breakfast but wonderful quality.
Spotlessly clean. Staff are non intrusive and yet very friendly and helpful when needed.
Good location in the Marais with great boutiques close by.

We stayed heredera onky for one night instituto a drive through paris. We chose this hotel because it has its own parking, a rare ocurrence in Paris. We were delighted to find a beautiful hotel with really good service. Our room was on the ground floor and was really comfortable and big, another rare occurance in Paris. The hotel isn't really close to any metro stations but is about 10 minutes walk from several. The neighborhood is full of boutique shops and restaurants, whit owner kind to turists, again a rare occurance in Paris.
We would definitely recommend this hote

The hotel is located in Le Marais, a vibrant neighbourhood with charming boutiques and nice restaurants (L'Ange 20) that isn't too crowded with tourists (yet). There are two underground stations at less than 500m from the hotel, so you can easily visit the tipical tourist attractions as well.

I personally loved the design of the hotel. It is lavish and over-the-top. Although the lobby is small (after all it is a small boutique hotel with only 17 rooms), it is lavishly decorated. We had the (only) ground floor room. At first we were concerned that it would become noisy at night, but this was absolutely not the case. To Parisian standards I found the room quite big with plenty of closet space, a large desk and two chairs and still room to walk around. The bathroom could comfortably fit two people and had a nice bath tub to soak in after a day walking through Paris. I know that some people mind not having a separate shower or at least a curtain, but I don't mind.

The breakfast was plenty and good (to French standards): freshly squeezed orange juice, strong dark coffee or a cappuccino, a bowl of fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, a basket of bread (baguette), croissants and brioches, a selection of jams, some cheese (although it was individually packed industrial cheese instead of artisanal) and a table with cereals and dried fruits.

The receptionists and - especialy - the ladies in the breakfast room were all extremely friendly.

I will certainly be back.

I stayed here back in August and stayed in their "middle priced" room, which was still $250/Euro per night with a discount promotion in effect (saving $50/Euro per night).

First the good stuff - the room was well proportioned and it was a corner unit with very nice street views, great light & quiet. The bed was large and very comfortable and same for the bath.... although it was a hand held wand over a soaking tub. "quaint" for about a day, but over the course of 7 days, it was sort of a pain and didn't make for a great shower. Also, there was no glass retainer wall, so the entire bathroom would invariably get soaked when in use.

So the room was fine enough, the Wifi was consitent and there was adequate closet space.

The room key was absolutely ridiculous - it was one of those "old fashioned" keys with an odd looking key cut and it was both large & heavy.....a total pain to take along with you during the day. Even worse, you had to "lock yourself into the room" with the key to have a locked door. Just one of those bad ideas (like the shower wand) that makes you wonder about the planning process here. Also, little things in the room were shoddy - be it drywall spackle spot or slightly peeling wall paper..... it just looked unfinished.

My least favorite part of the stay though was the staff - typical French indifference. They barely made themselves available for even the most basic kinds of help or assistance. The hotel itself only has a small breakfast space (extra $) and no other amenities.

Great location in the Marais though and the hotel no withstanding, I love going to Paris.

Room Tip: Check out Hotel Duo, which was my first choice for a Marais location or Airbnb for a quality apartme...

Dear Winston, I am sorry you had a few problmes during your stay in August although thankyou for some kind comments. Some of the staff were not our permanent staff in august as some were away on holiday, although this is not an excuse. The key is an issue that we have had before but the whole idea of the hotel is to get away from the standard large group hotels and to be like an early century hotel with reel keys and locks, either you like or don't, I am sorry you did not. I am happy you enjoyed the location as the hotel was designed to fit in the oldest part of Paris.
