We found this small property on TripAdvisor in the "Romantic hotels" section and it was the perfect choice for our first trip to Paris. We wanted to stay someplace away from the summer crowds but still convenient to the major attractions. Les Jardins is located just one block from a metro station and the best way to reach the trains was to cut through the L'Atrium du Palais which has a great selection of shops. The neighborhood around the hotel has plenty of restaurants, cafes and markets which we also enjoyed during our stay.
The staff at Les Jardins de la Villa were absolutely wonderful and sooo patient with our limited French vocabulary. Pierre-Luc was particularly welcoming to us after a long overnight flight from the US and was able to check us into our room much earlier than we expected (Thank you!). He was also on duty when we left and gave us great recommendations for the next part of our trip (to the Burgandy wine country).
We had room #21 (Chambre Deluxe) and thought it was quite spacious for a city hotel. There was plenty of room for one large suitcase, a wardrobe for hang-up items, and a small desk for papers, phone, etc. There was not a lot of drawers but plenty of little shelves next to the mini-bar and (Wonderful) Nespresso machine. This room has a small balcony (as requested with our reservation) which did not have a great view, but was just right for sitting outside with our morning coffee.
The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room was amazingly quiet. We saw other guests on our floor, but never heard them or any sounds from the neighboring buildings. I can't remember the last time I slept so well in a hotel room (especially in a large city).
The bathroom was also quite large with great lighting and lots of shelves for toiletries. Our room did not have a bathtub but the shower was fabulous with a powerful "wand", a large "rain shower" head and lots of hot water. The towels were new and fluffy and stored on a heated rack.
Even the lighting in the room was more than we expected with individual reading lights on each side of the bed and switches that controlled the whole room from beside the bed.
If there is even a small negative comment to make, it would be the breakfast which we thought was a bit pricey at $22 Euros for the full buffet. This also could be our fault since we came down quite late on a busy Saturday morning. The pastries were wonderful and the orange juice was definitely fresh-squeezed. (There is a gourmet market in the plaza across the street so we stopped there and got breakfast items for the rest of our stay).
We realize that this is a very long review but we cannot say enough about this wonderful "find" that was our home for 4 days in a large city. We will definitely be back and will recommend this property to any of our friends who are lucky enough to visit Paris.
