“Lovely accommodations, lovely hosts”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

This was our first experience at a B&B in Paris, and my husband and I were unsure about what to expect. We were so pleased with Courcelles-Parc (17th arrondissment), and we would definitely return! Our hosts Philippe et Nathalie were delightful; Philippe has a terrific sense of humor (and makes fun of his English which is quite good), and Nathalie was so knowledgeable and passionate about her city and its history. If you don't know Paris, they will guide you; if you have been before, they will offer more out-of-the-way ideas, and there are maps available if you need them. Philippe and Nathalie reside on the 6th floor, and breakfast was served every morning in their beautiful apartment. Each morning brought a different mixture of people, so our breakfasts tended to last a long time with all the conversations going around the table. I particularly enjoyed being able to speak French with Nathalie and some of the guests. Our room was La Tour Eiffel with the WC across the hall, only steps away - not a problem, because it was ours and ours alone. Our room was beautifully appointed with large windows and, although it was on the 1st floor (second floor in American parlance), it was very quiet; the bed - an important item after a long day of walking - was large and very comfortable. We were only steps from the Villiers Metro stop, and if you forgot to pack something, the Monoprix was just behind the B&B. Parc Monceau was just a block away (be aware that it closes at 8 p.m.) The neighborhood was busy but not touristy, and when we explored, we found great little pockets of local restaurants and bars. Merci, Philippe et Nathalie.

My daughter and I visited in mid April for 2 nights and felt right at home with the outstanding welcome of Philippe and Natalie. For me, safety and a peaceful ULTRA CLEAN place where my children feel right at home is tantamount in traveling. So if you enjoy B & B's with incredible service and exceptionally delicious and healthy food and like minded guests than this is a wonderful sanctuary to stay at in Paris near the pretty Parc Monceau. We took the Metro or walked to the sites-very easy. Merci Beaucoup to our hosts and we will recommend them to all our friends.

We can't say enough positive things about Courcelles-Parc. The best hosts, a large suite in a cool neighborhood with exceptional restaurants within easy walking distance. Phillipe and Nathalie make you feel like you're friends/family living in the building. Book it if it's available. We would like to live there!! Full of joy.

My wife and I stayed in the Eiffel Tower Suite and the place was great, located close to the metro and park and walking distance to Paris center (if you do not mind walking). Phillipe gave us apt advice that helped us from being victims of the good old gypsy ring trick in the center of Paris. He also gave us good restaurant recommendations. The room was nice and building was fine. While the location is not in the center it is VERY easy to walk or take the metro which is a few feet from the building. We were able to figure it out pretty easily. Will be back next time!

Yes, Paris is the greatest city in the world but it's the warming embrace from Phillipe and Natalie that brings that home.
We spent 12 nights there; enough time to appreciate that we were in a suburb, (between the Arc de Triumphe and Sacre Coere ), barely touristed, that exemplify the Parisian lifestyle.
There were many families with children, no crime, and an attitude that the daily purchasing of food is just the normal scene.
(Maybe our usual, weekly grocery big box purchases are not the most efficient? )
Many restaurants, are within distance. Philippe knows them all, and Maxim's is not on the list as he recommends the real French experience without spending wastefully
We stayed in the Arc Triumphe room, super experience, but if the windows are open expect road noise. No problem for us as it drowns out my wife.
We're stayed in B&B's in London and Dublin as well; both were rated #1 and were great. (See my reviews of them)
This B&B is the best by far, for sure.

Room Tip: Earplugs and the Monoprix mini-grocery for booze and light meals etc.

It's hard to say more than what's already been said many times by other reviewers - there's not a thing I would change about Courcelles-Parc! Our room was clean and comfortable, the wifi was fast, and the location can't be beat. As we were leaving Paris my husband asked what I'd miss most about being there and I said breakfast with Philippe and Nathalie. They are wonderful hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed hanging out (probably longer than they wanted us to!) in their apt every morning during our week long stay.

After doing research, we chose Courcelles-Parc based on the amazing reviews. Personally, we don't look at the good reviews, we always look at the negatives when deciding on a place to stay, and after seeing absolutely NO negative or even less than excellent reviews we were sold.
From the correspondence with Philippe when booking until after we left when Philippe emailed advising us we left our USB in the room and him mailing it to our next location without hesitation, we were totally blown away by the hospitality of Philippe and Natalie. We truly felt more like family with them then just guests.
The room was more than perfect (we loved hearing the story that each room has a bit of family history for Philippe), and it was more than generous that we were allowed to stay in a more comfortable room during our stay even though we were scheduled to move to a smaller room after two days.
From the first night Philippe was giving us ideas of what to do and suggesting places to eat (to avoid some of the touristic places, which there are many in Paris). Natalie was a joy to listen to for ideas of where to go as she is a very passionate artistic person and was a wealth of knowledge on everything from the Louvre to the architecture of Paris. Philippe wasn't bad either, even though he thought his English wasn't too good.
Both Philippe and Natalie were more than happy to have breakfast for us at 8am (French breakfast is usually later, which we found out on the first night when we suggested 7am..). Philippe was even more than happy to get up early and organise an early pick up of our yummy Parisian breakfast one particular morning when we had to catch a train to Rheims.
We have never left a review for anything, but for our stay at this exceptional B & B, we couldn't imagine sharing our satisfaction at such hospitality. Although, we did think about keeping it a secret... We want to make sure we can get a booking easily next time we want to visit Paris.
PS LOVED THE LITTLE CHOCOLATE BISCUITS LEFT ON OUR PILLOW EACH DAY :-)
