Checking in at this chic boutique Left Bank stay is akin to a trip to Wonderland, all neon-bright colors, gleaming surfaces and unexpected details. Designer Sybille de Margerie, whose imprimatur is also on icons like Hôtel de Crillon, has pulled out the stops in her re-styling of this classic Parisian coach house in the funky Latin Quarter. Each room is inspired by its own historical epoch, from Medieval to 1970s Paris, and features textiles and wallpapers in luxe textures like silk and velvet by Lelièvre and Pierre Frey. A tranquil terrace, meanwhile, offers a more traditional take on Parisian style (think wrought iron café chairs), the perfect spot for café au lait and croissants before hitting the Quartier.
In the Area
You’re within sashaying distance of one of Paris’s most beautiful public spaces, the 60-acre Luxembourg Gardens, so take a stroll along its serene pathways before checking out the magnificent domed Pantheon, which offers a historic crypt along with breathtaking views over the city from the dome’s colonnade. Get a taste of risque old Paris at the iconic Crazy Horse, an avant garde cabaret operating since the 1950s. Finally, sate your sweet tooth at a classic patisserie like Carla Marletti or drop by the Catherine Deneuve-decorated Le Salon du Pantheon tea house.
How to Get There
I booked a deluxe room with 2 twins for me and my daughter and we were super happy with our experience. As a 4 star hotel it is spot on. The room was plenty big for us. It even had a small sitting area, so I recommend upgrading if you want space. We also had no issue with it being loud (even being right next to the elevator). We were in room 402.
I also want to shout out to the staff for allowing us to store luggage and come back late in the day. They didn’t mind at all that my teen chose to hang out in the lobby while I went to dinner with friends.
My only disappointment was that the gentleman at the desk was new and not familiar with the neighborhood restaurants. The bathroom also showed some signs of age. I am confident that it was clean based on the rest of the room and the hotel, but there was definite signs of wear and tear. Thus the 4 stars when I would have given 5.
Oh! And Wifi worked well. Yay!
A good place to stay. Quiet end of Rue St Jacques, easy access point to the neighborhood, lots of good services tucked into relatively small rooms. Very helpful and friendly staff. Good value for short stays.
Stayed here in June of 2017 and had wonderful service. Breakfast was lovely, room was nice and clean and the staff were very polite. This is a wonderful hotel to stay at when visiting Paris. Would definitely recommend staying here.
The Hotel is as its name says "Petit". it almost unnoticeable in the lane as you approach. You have really keep your eyes wide open to spot it.
The rooms are small but have an aesthetic appeal.
The breakfast spread is basic.
Overall, its a decent budget hotel in Paris city centre. Its access to the various sightseeing spots is a plus point. Public transport is easily available from the 6th arondesment where the hotel is located.
Nice lobby and beautiful hotel. Conveniently located. However, loud and the pillows were uncomfortable. I would not plan on staying here again but it was fine for a few nights and was included in the airfare package I purchased.
