... Its magnificent! I cannot wait until I get to the top of this tower! Being at the top will make me feel really accomplished.
I am probably going to be here for about 5 hours since there is a huge line of people waiting in line. It'll probably take us about thirty minutes or so 'til we are the next ones. After finishing our walk on the tower we are going ...
"Avec vous appris de nous émission?" or that's at least what we thought we heard as we wandered in a men store on Champ Élysée. Unable to understand we asked if the lady spoke English, to which came the response, "I thought I was speaking English". Slightly embarrassed we continued our shop, picking up some cheap wool knits for the cooler weather which we are told is coming by months end. Hard to believe at the moment with the sun not ...
... on the couches of folks they have yet to meet (in person, that is). You can sign up for an account on Couchsurfing, mark yourself as a Surfer or Host and start searching for other people.
As a Surfer I look for hosts around the Paris area who seem interesting and available (both in couch and in person) in the times I seek to surf. I sent out a general call to anyone who would like to host me this weekend and Renata jumped at ...
... later that night I made pasta for kaitlyn and Flore and we also had the bread and tried the cheese which was ... Different lol Flore loves them but she group up in France. We had a goat cheese and one cow cheese which surprisingly I liked the goat cheese better but they were both very strong and stinky! But I'm sure it's an acquired taste lol we then watched movies on tv which it's really funny watching Julia Roberts speaking in ...
... So it was warm. But the train went very, very fast. The TGV goes up to 200 km/hour. We’re not sure if ours got quite up to that speed, but we were definitely not in the slow lane. When we went under a bridge it went by so fast that you could literally blink and miss it. And if there was vegetation near the rail line, you couldn’t really see it. It was just a blur.
The advantage of taking the TGV to Paris was that the train ride was only an hour. If we’d driven ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel du Petit Moulin Paris
Georgeous Hotel in heart of Paris Marais
Gorgeous hotel- very attractive and intresting in design. Stayed here with husband- found the service very good- they allowed me to check out and pay the night before. Breakfast was standard but served beautifully. Would love to stay again.
My favorite hotel ever - it is the BEST!
I stayed here in September for three nights while traveling overseas. This was probably my favorite hotel experience ever! Definitely among my top 5 in the world. The hotel and its rooms are GORGEOUS and the staff is topnotch - soooo friendly, helpful (especially to an American who doesn't speak French very well), and just a pleasure to deal with, all of the staff was absolutely super. I had absolutely no complaints about my stay and everything was just perfect. I hated that my stay wasn't longer because it was so enjoyable, but it will definitely be my "home" in Paris whenever I'm there from now on!
This place is fantastique!
What a find this place is!
We would heartily recommend it to others.
The atmosphere was friendly and the staff made us feel like we were the only guests in the hotel - talk about attentive!
The place was kept spotlessly clean and we liked the location. Great breakfasts and a super Plasma TV!!!!
We love Paris anyway, but have just found our new home from home.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again in the Spring!
Super cool and comfy!
paris has one big problem. tons of horrible hotels and no good ones without paying stupid prices over 400 euros a night. this problem has now been solved.
this hotel is lovely. i stayed in room 302. although not super large, it has high ceilings, great bed, wifi, plasma tv, and cool decor etc. i paid 250 euros incl all taxes etc. it still isn't cheap, but its a great deal if you compare it to the park hyatt etc...and it has the personal christian lacroix touch (he designed all the rooms) that you will not get at a chain hotel.
the concierge was very accomodating as well and spoke very well english.
asthonishingly it is incredible how low this hotel is ranked in the tripadvisor ranking. maybe thats a good thing. ;)
i will definately stay there again.
my favorite hotel in a long time, and i travel every week and stay in 5 star hotels all around the world.
hope this review helps.
In a word: Fantastic!
I had the recent pleasure of staying 5 nights at Hotel du Petit Moulin and I would not hesitate to go back. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed quite comfortable. The breakfast offerings downstairs were tasty. The staff was friendly and helpful, offering suggestions of places to see off the beaten path and always answering my questions about the best way to get around Paris. They helped make my first visit to Paris an enjoyable experience.
Not good enough
I am a French speaking Croatian, and lived in Paris for 6 years for my studies. I went back with my husband, hoping we would be able to share this city which I love. I am sorry to say our trip was not as "grand" as I had hoped in great part becaus of our hotel. The staff was rude, the rooms not comfortable and too small... this did not match my memories of the city and its people... Avoid this hotel.
A Wonderful Gem
We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights this Oct and it was absolutely charming. The hotel staff could not be more helpful and friendly. The rooms are all unique and lots of fun. The beds are nice and firm and the bathroom is large by Paris standard. The only down side was that our room, 205, only had a deep tub with a handheld shower, not a full shower. All in all this is a great hotel and I am looking forward to going back.
Would go back
This is a lovely hotel in a lovely area. The street is very quiet and the staff helpful. The rooms are noisy (you can hear the people in the corridor) but overall we loved it. Great bathroom also and plasma tv. Comfy bed but overpriced breakfast.
A great place to stay in Paris
This brand new boutique hotel has been in all the style and fashion magazines recently as it was created by the designer Christian Lacroix. We were looking for a cheap-ish place to stay for a long weekend and were surprised at how affordable it was, given the hype: the cheapest rooms cost 180 euros, which doesn't normally buy you much in Paris. Booking the smallest category room we expected either a snotty welcome, or a horrid room, but were very nicely surprised.
The location is great, in the Marais district: this is a really interesting place to stay, and you can walk to much of central Paris from here. There are also some nice restaurants and interesting little one-off boutiques. It's also close to the main gay part of town with lots of bars and clubs within walking distance, but is in a very quiet street.
The hotel itself is stunning: the facade is that of an original bakery, but inside it's full of classic mid-century furniture, rich silk drapes, wild patterned carpets and dark colours... sounds gross, looks great. The staff are charming but a bit clueless: buy a decent guidebook rather than asking them too many questions. but there's none if the attitude that we'd feared.
Our room was a bit small, and was under the eaves, but was beatifully decorated and had a gorgeous bathroom, plus a fancy plasma TV. The pricier rooms must be even nicer, and they're all decorated individually.
The only downside is that breakfast is served in the bar area which smells a bit of stale smoke, but you can easily get breakfast in a local cafe if you prefer.
We'll definitely go back.
We were at Hotel Du Petit Moulin for two nights in mid June. It is very pretty but I would say unless they can promise u one of the nicer rooms, its not worth the 250 euros that u will be paying. They just gave us room 103, which was nice, but not one of the popular rooms.. you can view the rooms from their website. So if u want a room with the really funky
Christian Lacroix walls, u may need to put in an advance request, I think.
We did asked for a room change for the next night, but decided against it when we were informed that we had "check out" from our original room before noon and wait until after 3.30pm before we can move into the new room. Too troublesome we thought.
One of the things we did like however was the nice toileteries. Anne Semonin, i believe they were.
And the whole time we were there, they were didnt even wish us congratulations although they were informed that we were on our honeymoon. They didnt even help with our luggage when we arrived all jet lagged from Kuala Lumpur!
One of the front desk staff was not very helpful with directions as well. However, we did complain to Miss Nadia Murano herself and her manager, and both of them were apologetic abt their staff's ineptness. They explained that he was from Russia and was not familiar with certain Paris attractions. But to not have heard of GIVERNY, i think is quite unforgivable.
On hindsight they could have been embarassed that we were not celebrities, or that we travelled with our trusty backpacks!
I guess we would still go back if we have the money to splurge, as we are sentimental about it being our honeymoon hotel. Just need to downsize our expectations a little about the service. :-)
