Quirky boutique hotel
Reviewed 2 months ago

A quirky and fun hotel in the heart of the Marais. Took the junior suite which gave us some elbow room - except for the head. At 6’4” in the mansard suite (lots of angled, low beams) I was constantly dodging skull-level collisions (often unsuccessfully). That, in combination with tight and awkward staircase climb to the room after elevator ride made this feel something less than a luxury hotel. Decor was interesting, front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Location in the Marais was highly convenient starting point for many pleasant walks. Excellent breakfast. Reciprocal spa privileges at sister hotel a walk away on the Place des Vosges is nice in concept, but not really convenient - you’re unlikely to take advantage. All in all a fun stay, but a bit pricey for what it really is once you look past the celebrity designer (Lacroix) decor.

Quirky and interesting, but far from perfect

We stayed here for two nights and paid more than 550 euros for it. This is not exactly cheap for a 4 star hotel in Paris.

The property is interesting and with a lot of character, due to its history and layout. Our room - on the top floor - was definitely different from the usual hotel room, I would say in a good way. We were glad we had one of the bathrooms with a walk-in shower rather than a bathtub.

Unfortunately there are a few small things that would prevent me from giving more than 3 stars to this hotel.

The continental breakfast is cute and in theme with Paris. However, I felt that the small pastries that were served were not fresh nor of the quality I would expect in France. On the second day we skipped breakfast altogether and opted for a nearby cafe', where we had a much better croissant.

Bathroom and shower gel were not replenished in the room on our second day.

Only at the end of our stay, when we overheard a conversation during check in of a another guest, did we realise that we would have had free access to a beautiful spa nearby as part of our stay. When they checked us in, no one informed us. If we had known, we would've definitely made use of it.

Our rate entitled us to a late check-out, but it was denied to us on the basis that that hotel was full. However, there were still 4 rooms bookable online at the time our request was refused.

Finally, there was one (small) free bottle of water in the room on our arrival. I was somehow expecting another bottle on the second day. Instead, we had to opt for the small water bottle in the minibar. 4 euro per 0.5L is a bit outrageous for a 4 star hotel.

Overall, and sadly, we were not charm enough by this property to choose it as our base for our next Paris trip.

Disappointing Hotel for the Price
Reviewed 3 months ago

Well located but we were disappointed with the hotel in general and it’s definitely a case of style over substance with this one. Atmosphere here is non-existent along with the in-room amenities; no tea/coffee making facilities, nowhere to put on make-up unless you’re happy to struggle with the steamed up mirror in the bathroom; nowhere to put toiletries in the bathroom even though there’s plenty of room for a cabinet or shelf and the lighting generally is poor. I appreciate there is a lack of natural light in the building but we struggled to find clothes in our cases and ended up feeling rather irritated by the lack of thought for a customer’s needs, those little touches showing that customers' needs have been anticipated. The ultimate question with a hotel ... Would I go back? No.

Gorgeous little place.

It's been almost 5 years since our stay, but I remember it fondly.

The polka dot carpet, the orchids, the dark moody interiors and the quirky vibe, made for a wonderful choice for my birthday stay.

All correspondence prior to arrival was returned with helpful replies.

We requested the room in the main picture, red damask patterned walls, black & white scene wallpaper behind the bed, high gloss white furniture, and were quickly granted this wish.
Buttttt, as beautiful as the space was it shared a wall with the elevator (insert sad face). Hubby sleeps well, I on the other hand am lighter, so after the first night of relative constant up down elevator noises, we asked to be relocated. Unfortunately no rooms available. Not a show stopper, so earplugs it was...but lesson learned for next time.

Yes, yes, the rooms are small, but it is Paris!

Wifi was hopeless!

Staff were ok, but not overly friendly.

We stayed in several arrondissements during our stay and this was by far our favourite. Fab restaurants close by, awesome boutiques, and gorgeous little cobblestoned streets that Paris does perfectly.

A memorable experience.

Weekend stay
Reviewed 4 months ago

Cute little hotel, great location in Marais with loads of cool spots for eating and drinking around it. Staff were very helpful and the decor is pretty cool as well. Breakfast is a very basic cereal spread but we would have always popped out for a coffee and croissant in one of the numerous Parisian cafes around anyway!!
