Hôtel du Petit Moulin

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Well located but we were disappointed with the hotel in general and it’s definitely a case of style over substance with this one. Atmosphere here is non-existent along with the in-room amenities; no tea/coffee making facilities, nowhere to put on make-up unless you’re happy to struggle with the steamed up mirror in the bathroom; nowhere to put toiletries in the bathroom even though there’s plenty of room for a cabinet or shelf and the lighting generally is poor. I appreciate there is a lack of natural light in the building but we struggled to find clothes in our cases and ended up feeling rather irritated by the lack of thought for a customer’s needs, those little touches showing that customers' needs have been anticipated. The ultimate question with a hotel ... Would I go back? No.

It's been almost 5 years since our stay, but I remember it fondly. The polka dot carpet, the orchids, the dark moody interiors and the quirky vibe, made for a wonderful choice for my birthday stay. All correspondence prior to arrival was returned with helpful replies. We requested the room in the main picture, red damask patterned walls, black & white scene wallpaper behind the bed, high gloss white furniture, and were quickly granted this wish. Buttttt, as beautiful as the space was it shared a wall with the elevator (insert sad face). Hubby sleeps well, I on the other hand am lighter, so after the first night of relative constant up down elevator noises, we asked to be relocated. Unfortunately no rooms available. Not a show stopper, so earplugs it was...but lesson learned for next time. Yes, yes, the rooms are small, but it is Paris! Wifi was hopeless! Staff were ok, but not overly friendly. We stayed in several arrondissements during our stay and this was by far our favourite. Fab restaurants close by, awesome boutiques, and gorgeous little cobblestoned streets that Paris does perfectly. A memorable experience.

Cute little hotel, great location in Marais with loads of cool spots for eating and drinking around it. Staff were very helpful and the decor is pretty cool as well. Breakfast is a very basic cereal spread but we would have always popped out for a coffee and croissant in one of the numerous Parisian cafes around anyway!!

what a lovely hotel in the heart of the marais, the staff is excellent and very helpfull, tastefull breakfast, beautiful and very quiet room, we had number 403 upper floor, decoration is superb, we will definitely come back

Outstanding staff, beautiful room. Hotel centrally located. Hotel was lovely, clean and artistically decorated with an old fashion lookk An absolutely brilliant experience. The hotel receptionists couldn’t have been friendlier, courteous, and helpful.

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
