We always check hotels on trip advisor before booking and having seen the reviews booked this hotel. We were not disappointed from the very friendly helpfully staff to the comfy beds and the lovely lady who boiled me an egg each morning. The staff will help you with restaurant bookings and advice on anything you want to know. Every single member of staff were friendly and made you feel right at home. The location is perfect and the local restaurants are great. Would highly recommend this hotel and will gladly return. A big thank you to all the staff

We had a great time. A really nice hotel, a hidden gem
Close to everything but just away from the bussle at the same time. Would re commend it to everyone.
We went this time as a family and both the big princess and our little princess loved everything

Did a tremendous amount of research for hotels in Paris and decided to do TWO different hotels (the other was Hotel Bellechasse - right next to Musee d'Orsay), in two different arrondissements to get a chance to try out different hotels and to have easier access to different tourist sites. Stayed at the Hidden Hotel on August 5th and 6th 2014 and had a great experience. Every single individual that I spoke with at the front desk was friendly and very helpful and all spoke flawless English (helped call cabs, confirm restaurant reservations, help with directions). I have stayed in Paris at other hotels before and must say this is not true at all hotels.

If there is any downside, it is that it is a bit pricier than other hotels, but you get what you pay for. The room is a bit small (fits just the bed), but if you've lived anywhere in NYC, it is pretty standard. Close to the Arc de Triomphe (5 minute walk tops), not too far from the Trocadero (view of Eiffel Tower), Eiffel Tower, Basilique de Sacre Coeur, the Love Wall, the Louvre and Jardin des Tuileries (Musee de l'Orangerie) which we did in two/three days.

The hotel is easy to get to by train if you don't have too much luggage. No need to spend $70-$90 on a cab. Can be reached on the #2, or "Blue" Line - easy to reach from the Charles de Gaulle Airport (Can get off at Ternes or Charles de Gaulle - Etoile). The hotel has umbrellas that you can borrow and also offers breakfast. We did not opt for the breakfast because there are so many bakeries/shops nearby. One place called Maison Pou has amazing desserts, fois gras, and yogurts (Yaourt Fabrique en Touraine - Le Fierbois)

Dear kicks_n_bites,

Thank you so much for sharing your impressions on TripAdvisor. We are very happy to hear that you have had a great time in Paris and in our lovely hotel. ... from your review we can see that you have experienced some places, just like the locals do. Maison Pou on Avenue des Ternes is definitely worth a visit for sweet and salty delacacies to take out.

For breakfast, there are also quite some places around our hotel, however don't forget: we are renowned for our home-made breakfast, using only fresh and lots of organic ingrédients! ... and we offer an EXPRESS OPTION as well: pastries, freshly squeezed juice & a hot drink (delicious "real" coffee, hot chocilate or Kusmi teas) for only 7€ per person...

With regards to our rooms: yes, our standard rooms called Intuition are quite fonctional, however for longer stays we would recommand our Emotion or Sensation rooms. In those rooms you can enjoy some extra space. :-)

Thank you again for choosing the Hidden Hotel amongst the many hotels you have researched!

Warmest regards from Paris,
Alinde & the entire Hidden Team

Chose this hotel after doing a lot of research into Parisian hotels to stay in for our 3rd wedding anniversary. We chose the Hidden Hotel due to price / location & reviews. We were not at all disappointed!

We stayed in the emotion room with a terrace. Bed was huge and comfy. Spotlessly clean, great shower & amenities. My only tiny gripe would be the lack of storage space for suitcases but that is by the bye as all space is at a premium in Paris.

Staff were amazing!! I probably saw 3 different receptionists in our stay and they were all as good as the last. Looking after our luggage, ordering numerous taxis, telling us about shopping / the local area and even making drinks.

Location is incredible: Close to shops, 5 min walk from l'arc de triomphe, cafes and restaurants nearby (see my review of Le Dodin). Even with so much nearby it is still really peaceful for when you need a break from the hustle & bustle of busy Paris. Can't wait to go back!

From the start, we got great vibes from the friendly staff the moment we stepped into the hotel's entrance. Our early flight meant we arrived at 10 am, & we were aware that check in wasn't available until 4 pm so we had set ourselves up for a tiring day . However we were told to grab a drink or a bite whilst the receptionist would see if our room would be available sooner.
As we were tucking into a lovely breakfast (they serve hot or cold) she told us it would be available at 11 am - perfect for us to have a nap before venturing out again.
Room: great eco - luxury decor, wooden floors, coco - mats, open bathroom/bedroom layout and a gorgeous linen draped bed. Great for couples- open layout possibly awkward for families unless you don't mind baring all.
Location: 5 minutes from the nearest metro/arc de triomphe! Great patisserie and sushi restaurant nearby with a subway around the corner.
Service: staff were so friendly and welcoming. Toilet roll & water were forgotten on one occasion but a call down to reception
soon fixed that.
Bar/Breakfast: always serve lovely drinks and the breakfast was yummy (even at a cost).great seating area with amazing sofas and furry chairs.

Would recommend this hotel for couples or anyone needing a relaxing getaway. This eco friendly hotel is perfect.

We found everything about this hotel to be very welcoming and friendly. We would highly recommend this hotel if you were going to Paris. It was clean and very well presented. It is a ten minute walk from L'arc de Triomphe. We got the Air France bus from Charles de Gaulle airport which drops of at L'arc de Triomphe.

Firstly, the staff were awesome. Very polite and all had a very good grasp of English, and a polite sensibility for my crappy French. The staff even made sure that breakfast was served an hour earlier each day becaus I had to leave at 06:30AM. Apparently early breakfasts are rare in Parisian hotels as my colleagues also found out. I stayed for a business trip and can highly recommend this hotel even if the rooms are rather small (but i think this is pretty standard in Paris). Though there were no real "views"; looking out on the street from my room and seeing gorgeous neighboring buildings isn't bad (even if one of them is a BMW dealership). The location is awesome, and the Argentine metro station is very close by as are numerous patisseries. "Schwartz Deli" makes a damn good burger and is relatively close by.

My only criticism and the reason there isn't 5 stars is that the room service was limited. High quality, but very limited in choice. This is important when you are on a business trip and need to work at nights.
