“Perfect qwerky hotel in a great location”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Had a weekend in Paris. Great little hotel in a great location near the Arc, a metro and the city velo scheme. Plus a 5min walk from the airport shuttle bus stop as well. We had a superior room which was quiet and comfortable even though small.... But that wasn't a problem at all.... Breakfast buffet was the usual French fair and perfectly adequate for setting you up for the day! staff were friendly and helpful. Will stay here again next time in Paris.

On a business trip to Paris my colleagues and I wandered the streets for at least an hour looking for a delicious place for dinner. Overwhelmed by the 'tourist' menus we were really hesitant to just pop into any restaurant. We wandered past the Hidden hotel and were curious so we stopped in thinking it may be a restaurant/bar.

The bartender said 'no food' but pointed us towards the concierge for suggestions. The concierge was FANTASTIC. Three young ladies that jumped to help us! One is particular was fabulous! She suggested two restaurants within walking distance but the menus were not in English. She welcomed us into the back of her tiny 'office' where she had a computer and proceeded to translate each menu into English for us. She was so sweet and accommodating! My colleagues and I felt a little guilty when the hotel concierge realized we weren't staying at the hotel and I think they may have been a little disappointed but the bottom line was when I travel I'm always looking for that experience of a lifetime! These ladies were proof that this hotel definitely caters to their guests (and non-guests) and look forward to my next trip to Paris and stay at the Hidden Hotel.

My partner and I stayed here for a weekend. The rooms are beautiful ( they are quite small, but space is used very effectively). The breakfast was absolutely lovely, the staff are very friendly and spoke English almost perfectly.
The bar is gorgeous, great cocktails and furnished beautifully. The location is great, just a few minutes to the arc de triomphe and within walking distance to many great sights inc the Eiffel Tower. The entire atmosphere of this hotel is so relaxing and comfortable, I would definitely go back!

Stayed for two nights with my husband for the rugby. The room was not ready when we arrived but were told it would be 45 minutes. An hour & a half later we were still waiting. I reminded the receptionist and suddenly the room was ready. We stayed in the building next door on the fourth floor. The room was tiny ( I suppose to be expected in central paris) but did still take me by surprise as I walked into the end of the bed coming through the door. The wardrobe consists of a small pole with 5 hangers on. It is decorated beautifully and the bed was extremely comfortable. The shower was beautiful as well. Just overall very very small and felt very claustrophobic unless you were on the bed. Not really anywhere to even stand & change.
The breakfast was amazing, such a great selection and very Parisian - we enjoyed immensely, meats, quiches, cheeses, really fresh juices. breads, fruits, omelettes etc It is a really convenient spot being 5mins from the Champs Elysee. We would stay there again but probably not take as big a suitcase to give us more room

Dear BabyHarry,
We would like to thank you for having taken the time to leave your comments on TripAdvisor, and are delighted that, overall, you have enjoyed your stay with us.
For your next visit to Paris, you could actually travel with the same size or even with bigger suitcases. We only would suggest to book one of our more spacious rooms for that - Look out for our Sensation Room or even one of our two Exception suites! Space will then not be an issue anymore!
Warmest regards from the City of Lights,
Alinde

The Hotel is great, modern, with a cool design. Very well situated, just few minutes from Arc de Triomphe in a good, safe neighborhood. The stuff is so so nice and welcoming. All in all, nicely Hidden from a noisy Paris:)

Stayed two nights in a larger room, which in fact wasn't very large. The design of the room and lobby area was boutique african style. It was special, nice, something different. Very comfortable bed. The hallway to the hotel rooms was very small and narrow. The service was very friendly and breakfast quality was really good for French/Parisian standard. Overall value was good for a Parisian hotel paying a nightly rate of around 170 euro including breakfast for two persons.

I stayed with my boyfriend in Hidden hotel for 2 days. Overall it was a lovely experience. The hotel has a gorgeous rustic design and is so central it is perfect for sightseeing and going out in the evening. The 24 hour reception staff are happy to serve drinks late at the bar and the rooms were very quaint and clean.

We were slightly unfortunate in that our room was not ready when we arrived, however we were offered a free drink by Xavier which was absolutely fine. When we went to get ready on our first evening out, unfortunately the hot water was not working in our room, a member of staff did come and check it and it appeared fine but it then stopped working again. We had to move to another room in a separate building meaning walking outside both soaking wet! We did not mind this at all as these things happen but I had to ask if we could stay in the other room as the member of staff suggested we go there only to shower and walk back to our original room. I did not find his attitude great and perhaps would have expected an apology for not having hot water which led to us missing our dinner plans.

However, mention again has to go to Xavier, who recommended a wonderful restaurant for us on our 2nd night (Boucherie Rouliere in District 6) which we thoroughly enjoyed and who also arranged a late check out due to the problems we had.

I think we were slightly unlucky and had the shower incident not happened I would not really have anything negative to stay. I would recommend this hotel although would say to check on travel sites for a good deal as standard rates are a little expensive for the small room sizes.

Room Tip: The smallest size room is very tiny so I would advise going for the next option up.
