Hôtel du Petit Moulin

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in November. We had a very positive experience. There were two outstanding features. First, the location is hard to beat. Perfectly situated in the marais, close to shopping, good food, walkable distance to many of the tourist sites. Second, the customer service. Front staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They switched our room upon request, provided recommendations for restaurants that were bang on, and were helpful for other requests. Best thing about this hotel is the boutique-feel and the location.

This is a Funky Hotel in a Great neighborhood but.... The rooms are small. We were put on the 4th floor 401. The first downside was that there is no elevator to the fourth floor, so you have to go up a tight spiral staircase with your suitcase from the third. The second surprise was that the room only had a bath. Been a while since I had taken one of those ;-) This may vary by room or be a Paris thing, yet was what we encountered, so be warned. Lastly the hotel's website touts "Bar of the Petit Moulin Paris Concept Bar at Le Petit Moulin Enjoy a selection of cocktails and your favorite vinyl played with our Devialet speakers : power, clarity and preciseness unlike anything you have ever heard before. Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, from 5.00pm to 10.00pm. Open to all. " This Caption is below the picture of a bartender shaking up drinks. I had booked Thursday through Sunday so we would be able to come home to a vibrant scene before heading in. Pretty funny when I came in after a full day of sightseeing Thursday only to see the bar dark. I asked the front desk why the bar was dark and where the DJ. was He laughed and then chuckled "DJ" like I had had too much to drink. In reality... The bar is an honor bar that is dark, unstaffed, and rarely visited. This should really be removed from their website. I gave the hotel an average score because the staff was helpful and it was in a nice neighborhood. There were two restaurants at the end of the street with a vibrant scene. You eventually get used to tight spaces and taking baths and hey... your in Paris Right? Just don't think your going to this rockin hotel in paris, more for the quite crowd willing to put up with a little less to get more. Hope this helps...

During a recent trip to Paris we stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. Lovely,quaint hotel in Marais. Check in staff were friendly and very helpful. Our room was small but clean. Location was perfect for sight seeing. We walked everywhere (Norte Dame, Eiffel Tower etc) the hotel offers laundry service which is very expensive. I did find a laundromat a couple blocks away which was very convenient. Lots of nice cafes and bakeries, small shops. If you want to workout you have to walk about 30 minutes to use at a sister hotel.

We had a lovely two night stay at Hotel du Petit Moulin. Our room was beautifully decorated, breakfast (included) was great and the staff were so helpful. The hotel is located in a beautiful area of Paris. We would definitely return.

Quirky boutique hotel; superb location, great breakfast, excellent value, interior designed by Christian Lacroix . I would highly recommend and we will return. Ideal for a romantic weekend, easy access to all of the delights and attractions of Paris

There are so many hotels to choose from in Paris but this chic (the hotel is uniquely decorated with such a cool motif) looking hotel seemed to stand out from the beginning and was the perfect choice. The hotel is located in Le Marais which is a lovely area full of many restaurants, shops and easy access to the Metro. We stayed in the junior suite which I highly recommend. It was spacious for a Paris hotel room and had a nice layout which included both a king bed and sofa pull-out bed. The staff at the hotel were very accommodating, always giving such helpful directions, restaurant selections or anything you could possibly ask for. We always felt like valued guests. If you are looking for a comfortable, chic, conveniently located hotel with great service, Hotel du Petit Moulin has it all.

Our charming room was designed by Christian Lacroix, as was each unique room in the hotel. The staff were gracious and helpful, and the ground-floor bar ran on an honour system. That is, you helped yourself to drinks and noted it at the time in order to pay later. (My husband found this convenient, especially as we often came in late and he was able to quickly and easily pour himself a night-cap.) The room rate was reasonable, especially given the convenient location. Breakfast was available, although we never made it down by 10am to partake. There is a computer and some games available in the common room.

With all of the fabulous reviews, I was expecting to be more comfortable. The room, while well decorated, was small and did not have a shower (just a bath and we booked a deluxe room). Also, wifi was pretty spotty. While the front desk did help with an early check-in, no help was offered with the bags and directions were not helpful to find a coffee shop, nor a store. The woman serving breakfast was helpful and friendly though I wish we could have had coffee made in the room (with an in room coffee maker). We were also given one bottle of water (in the room) the first day, but weren't given one daily (just FYI - you will need to find that store). Overall, the hotel was fine and in a great location, just not luxurious nor spacious.

Great service, perfect staff, great hotel and rooms design. perfect location. We have only good things to say about the hotel and staff. I got all help needed to surprise my wife for her birthday including additional services from other providers that the hotel helped me with. Was perfect.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Hotel du Petit Moulin for two nights. The hotel has a great history and has splashes of style and color that make it a special hotel. While the rooms are on the small side, the bathrooms provided ample space. Our room featured a large colorful mural above the bed and captured the charm of the Marais. A great location: We walked throughout the area and enjoyed all the shops and attractions. We also stayed at their other property in Paris: Le Pavillion des Lettres(a separate review).
