We enjoyed our two night stay very much. The hotel was stylish and ideally placed to explore the Marais with its great design shops, restaurants and bars. Despite being right in the middle of a lively night district, the apartment was quiet and relaxing. The breakfast was excellent and we were made most welcome by Serge and Juliette.

Stayed here for several nights and found the room comfortable and the neighborhood very good. The breakfast (chocolate croissant, baguette, butter, cheese, meat, yogurt and fruit) exceeded our expectations, and there were lots of special touches throughout the property. It really did feel like a chic Paris property. The hosts are very friendly and they are willing to help you with travel advice and making restaurant reservations. They speak English very well.

One thing to note is that if you have mobility issues, you will climb a a flight of wooden spiral steps to reach the apartment. Once inside, depending on your room, you may have an additional single step to take at various points. This wasn't a problem for us, but it should be a consideration if you're not good with stairs.

I was worried that the bed wouldn't be big enough for two, but it was fine. We have a queen bed in the U.S. and this bed felt about that same size. We were worried about noise since this property is on a very active street, but we didn't hear a thing! Also, this property is air-conditioned, which is very helpful. Even in May, it got warm one day. We also felt very secure.

We enjoyed the common dining area, and bought back some to-go from Miznon (highly recommended for a quick bite!) one night. They have snacks, a pod coffee machine for your use and bottled water in the refrigerator. This is possibly the most thoughtful property I've never stayed in, and was an excellent base for our Paris trip. It's close to the Hotel de Ville metro stop, and a short walk to the Seine. Plus, there's a Gerald Mulot and Pierre Herme close by!

I liked the concept. If you've ever stayed in a B&B in the U.S., this is very similar. I stayed in a property in London (Covent Garden House) just before coming here, and it was a similar concept but they didn't have the special touches, nice hosts, or the cleanliness of Hotel 1er Etage! This was by far the best hotel choice I made during my trip to Europe. It was a big relief to have such a good hotel in Paris after not liking my London hotel choices.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write such a detailed and nice review ! We are honoured to receive high marks from a very experienced Tripadvisor user.
There is nothing to be added as your description of our little hotel is very accurate. We are doing our best to put the little 'touches' that will make your stay a great 'Parisian experience' and something you would not find in any classical hotel or B&B.
We hope to see you again !

We stayed 4 nights, with a room on a busy, funky street. However, it was quiet because of the sound-proofed windows (which could be opened to let the buzz of Paris into the room). A small, intimate property with great privacy. One walks up a flight of stairs (no elevators, so not good for handicapped or those with heavy luggage). A very Parisian breakfast is included and served!! One of the charming owners (Juliette and Serge, wife/husband) was always there in the morning, offering help to plan the day and happy to talk about Paris and France - their love of the city was patently obvious. Because they are new to the hotel business, they try hard to make sure the stay is the best it can be. It should be noted that there is no staff at night; was not an issue for us. We will be back to stay here.

This is a great concept. Just 5 rooms on the first floor of an apartment building. It has been designed to feel like a B&B but with the comforts and privacy of a hotel room. Coming from Australia we do like a hot breakfast or cereal, however the hotel only offers a typical French breakfast of fruit, yoghurt, meats cheese, bread and croissants - it is great quality and fantastic service. The owners are wonderful, the beds very comfortable and the rooms are spotlessly clean. Our room #2 had a shower that was exposed to the bedroom so if this is not an issue then it is a lovely room albeit I did not see the internal spaces of any of the other rooms. It was quiet even though you are in the heart of the marais district and close to everything. You do have to cart your bags up a flight of very narrow stairs so if this is an issue I would ask if you can get some assistance which I am sure the owners would help with if you arrived between breakfast and 11am - after this you let yourself into the foyer and your room. There is a small kitchen for guests use with tea, coffee and biscuits (no milk) and breakfast is served in the foyer. There are only 5 rooms so it is a very intimate space and the owners are happy to assist you with any questions and will suggest options dependent on your interests. I will certainly stay again on my next trip to Paris and would recommend it to my family and friends. Well worth considering if you want to stay in the heart of Paris and expect 5* service and comforts.

We stayed for one night and really enjoyed the whole experience. We were able to check in early and enjoy our room from around noon which was much appreciated. The decor of the whole place was really stunning and our room was no exception, very well done. It was comfortable, clean, stylish and had a great bathroom!

We really appreciated the little touches - coffee machine, the little booklet telling you about the area and what sights to see - made the place very special and a little different.

The location is great, it is in easy walking distance of everything you would want to see and also in a great area for bars and restaurants in the evening. Breakfast was also really delicious. Would definitely recommend!
