On a tree-lined street in a discreet corner of Paris, La Villa Maillot makes an elegant first impression with its classic 18th-century façade flanked by contemporary tulip-like lamps and striking purple lighting. Reopened in May 2013 after a major renovation by interior designer Patrick Ribes, the property surprises guests by juxtaposing a minimalist pastel color scheme with eye-catching soft-focus images of Parisian landmarks by talented photographer Bruno Barjhoux. Check out the elevators: They perpetually change color using principles of chromotherapy. This cozy four-star property comes with all the perks of a five-star hotel without the stiffness and formality; guests here feel part of a friendly family.
Bed and Bath
The 42 guestrooms are bright and spacious (especially for Paris), with a monochrome color palette that’s broken up with splashes of bright color — a green velvet chaise longue here, a bright red armchair there. There’s little to differentiate the Superior and Deluxe Rooms other than floor space (236 and 258 square feet, respectively). Both offer free tea and coffee, Fragonard beauty products, pillow menus, large flat-screen TVs, a media hub and iPod docks. But while Deluxe Rooms come with a shower, you can lie back in a proper tub and watch TV on a screen set in the bathroom mirror in a Superior Room.
Start the morning with breakfast in the lounge; the outstanding buffet features an impressive selection of French cheeses such as St. Nectaire, Comte and Reblochon. The V Bar, a cozy den overlooking the hotel’s Japanese courtyard, buzzes from the early evening. The signature cocktail, the 16eme Delice (named for the neighborhood), is a particular highlight. The spa may be petite, but all guests have free access to the Turkish bath and sauna.
In the Area
Walk over to Porte Maillot and take the elevator to La Vue, the Hyatt Regency’s penthouse cocktail bar, for spectacular skyline vistas, or have dinner at Le Relais de Venise for the best steak frites in town. Next door to La Villa Maillot, Le Petit Pergolese, a bistro-cum-art-gallery is a favorite hangout of French movie and music stars.
How to Get There
First of all the hotel with its amenities is amazing, we have never felt so at home in a hotel before. Patrick & Clèment at the front desk did everything possible to assist us with all questions we had and they really made us feel at home. They are also the best Concierge service I have ever encountered. Breakfast is absolutely great and all the staff, from cleaners to breakfast & room service is top class. This is definitely our nr one hotel in Paris and we travel a lot in our work so we will be back many more times. The rooms are super comfortable, beautifully decorated and the beds are remarkable. Thank you for this time and we will be back soon. The Malmoe couple
I was travelling to Liverpool for the Netball Worldcup and used the opportunity to explore two other countries in Europe. I stayed in Paris at this hotel and it was perfect. Convenient located in Paris with close access to shopping, food, attractions and the Metro!
Rooms were clean and cozy with a Television in the shower. That location for the TV was a first for me! The front desk staff offered A+ service!
There was also a SPA downstairs that included a gym, steam room and a sauna! Enjoyed thoses immensely!
It is a small hotel so naturally spaces are small. That however never changed the fantastic experience.
We stayed here in the beginning of July as a party of 3 (2 adults and a child) and had a pleasant and comfortable stay. The rooms and bathrooms are nice and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good too with lots of options.
There are good restaurants/bakeries/cafes nearby and the Porte Maillot metro station is five minute walk.
There were a couple of minor things with our room however. The door deadbolt would not close and as a result any staff with cardkey could open the door from outside when we were in the room. Happened with us once and we kept the "do not disturb" tag on whenever we were in the room so no one bothered us. Second the bathroom sliding door wouldn't slide all the way leaving a bit of space open. Neither was a big issue.
