How to Get There
We stayed in the Hotel du Petit Moulin from 15-17 September for our honeymoon and unfortunately we were very disappointed with our stay. The staff were very nice and helpful and even gave us a bottle of complimentary Champagne as it was our honeymoon but given the premium price the hotel are charging I couldn’t recommend it.
The room that we were given originally did not compare even closely with the photos on the website and felt much more like the decor you’d expect in a budget hotel, not a hotel charging premium rates and selling itself on its original design. The staff were helpful and moved us to another room. This was a significant improvement but despite being a non smoking room it smelt strongly of cigarettes and felt very tired and in need of refurbishment.
The next day we went to the sister hotel to use the spa. A spa was a key criteria in our search for a hotel as after our wedding we wanted to relax. Unfortunately though when we got to the sister hotel, none of the facilities were working. The hamman was not working and the jacuzzi was tepid not warm. This was a huge disappointment.
We borrowed the bicycles in the sister hotel instead and the bicycles were desperately in need of a service. The brakes on both bikes were really bad and on one bike barely worked at all so was quite dangerous to ride.
Back at the Hotel du Petit Moulin, we tried to use the wifi but found that the connection kept breaking and we were unable to use it.
Finally, though the beds were made beautifully by the house keeping team on both nights, the mattress felt old and not turned frequently so the mattress had dips on each side of the bed. Again I suspect that this is probably just because they are probably quite old.
Despite these points, the staff were very nice, the bed linen was soft and fresh, the products of the hotel were very good and we very much appreciated the complimentary champagne provided. The hotel offered us a free drink from the bar or breakfast but given the number of issues we really expected more substantial compensation.
I think the hotel was probably once worth the premium rates it is charging but even at the special rate we secured on an accommodation comparison website I don’t think it can justify these prices without some new investment to bring the rooms back up to standard.
The tony Marais District is the location for this very, very nice small Parisian Hotel. Beds are to die for and each room is tastefully decorated, complimentary Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs and most everything you need for a comfortable stay.
Friendly multi lingual staff, lots of action around you. No restaurant in the hotel. Limited food service. Continental breakfast.
The is number one on our return to Paris list.
Was a bit frustrated with this hotel as I emailed ahead and requested a quiet room. I was told not to worry and that all the hotel’s rooms were quiet. However, this was not at all the case. The single-pane windows are old and do a poor job of sound proofing. We could hear people’s conversations on the street, along with the sound of passing cars/motorbikes throughout the night. We could also hear our neighbors opening/closing their doors and people in the hallway.
The room also smelled fishy/?sewage, which was improved when we ran the AC.
The room itself was a good size and the bathroom was very large.
I wouldn’t stay here again, nor would I recommend it. There seem to be a fair amount of other hotel options in this neighborhood to explore.
There are many places in Paris that are a great location... this one is not. It’s a cute hotel but not for the price. It’s about a 25 minute walk from the Louve and 20 min walk from Notre Dame district. They have an honor system bar. This is great but my boyfriend and I brought our own wine and borrowed their glasses and they tried to charge us 80 euros. It’s updated in a contemporary style but not really where you want to be when visiting Paris.
I was lucky enough to be treated to a fabulous weekend in Paris for my birthday, staying on the top floor of the beautiful Petit Moulin. In the trendy Third Arrondissement, midway between the Place de Bastille and the Pompidou Centre, the building’s modest exterior gives only a few hints to the opulence inside, which extends throughout this beautiful and well-run hotel. With decor by Christian Lacroix, paradisal beings, plumes and pelts adorn the walls, floors and furnishings.
Our room was spacious with a comfortable bed, lots of natural light and windows that could open - so welcome in a hot city centre. A tiny sitting room, with minibar and sofa, was a good reading and surfing spot. The shower room was generously sized with glossy black tiles and a great shower. There is a lift to the second floor but we liked the zebra-carpeted staircase that felt a bit like a helter-skelter upon descent.
Service is smiling, professional and knowledgeable with the staff speaking excellent English and indulging our school French. Breakfast is optional with a simpler and more extensive option available - both are good value and great quality. Evenings are relaxing and understated; an honesty bar awaits you on the ground floor where you can enjoy aperitifs in the small lobby lounge or dining room. There is a kitchen (room service) but no restaurant - however this is unimportant as loads of bars and good restaurants are within walking distance. A nearby spa is linked and offers its services and treatments if that’s your thing.
I didn’t see the bill but suspect the price reflects the quality and recommend you too have a wonderful treat!
