We have travelled around the globe and have experienced many fine hotels and resorts. This hotel ranks amongst one of the best experiences we've ever had. The hotel is a small boutique hotel, yet it met all the "checks".
Location - it is close to many attractions in Paris. Located half a block from the busy Blvd Montparnesse, you will find many shops and restaurants to suit all tastes; the Metro station Notre Dame de Champs is a 2-3 min walk from the hotel (green line); you are within walking distance to St Germain, Luxembourg Gardens and if you feel up to it, you can walk to Notre Dame, The Louvre, Champs Elysees etc. It will take you a while but you can shop and eat along the way. There are plenty of fantastic bakeries everywhere - grab a baguette or pastry or a coffee and keep walking!
Staff - this hotel has the BEST staff we have ever encountered. It is a small hotel, so the front desk staff does everything - they man the front desk, they are the concierge, the bell staff, the bar staff and even room service staff! Despite that, they are always more than willing to help and they do it always efficiently and with a smile. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Our check in was quick and efficient. The front desk staff showed us to our room and showed us how to work a few things in the room. They gave us hints on dining, shopping, sightseeing; made dining reservations for us; booked our taxi to take us to CDG upon our departure; brought us our food when we called for room service (note - the food comes from a nearby restaurant as the hotel is too small to have it's own full time kitchen staff. The night we ordered room service, it was pouring rain outside and the poor lady from the front desk had to go get our food from the nearby restaurant and deliver it to our room. We didn't know that when we ordered room service and felt really bad she had to get it in the rain but she did it with a smile and said simply - no problem, it's my job!) and pretty much anything you need or want, they do their best to accommodate you.
Room - We got a junior suite on the 4th floor and it was perfect for our family of 3 - 2 adults and 1 teenager. The bedroom had a large king bed and ample closet space. The living room had a couch that pulled out to a bed and it was actually quite comfortable. The bathroom was quite large with a large rain shower and a separate tub. The toilet was in a separate area of the room with a separate sink. Great idea! There was a good sized work desk, high speed complementary internet connection, a Nespresso machine, kettle, mini bar, safe, umbrella, soft bath robes, ironing board etc. in the room. It really had everything you would need. 2 separate TV's, separate temperature control for the 2 rooms. It was VERY CLEAN! Kudos to housekeeping. The beds were comfortable and the duvet was luxurious - it was rainy and cold outside while we were there, so the duvet was perfect. We noticed another reviewer had issues with noise but we didn't have any problems - our room was quiet and we had great sleep.
Hotel itself - for a small hotel, it has everything you need. There's a spa, a gym and a bar. There is also a breakfast area. We got the package that included breakfast - a great idea - good selections and great way to start your day. We got complementary champagne and macarons upon arrival - what a nice touch!
Overall, we had a fantastic stay at this hotel. We have stayed at many hotels in Paris, and although we have been quite happy with our past hotel experiences in Paris, this was the BEST and we would definitely return to Hotel Le Six the next time we visit Paris. Keep up the great work! A special thank you to Slimane who tried so hard to get us a reservation at a local restaurant coz we wanted soufflé but unfortunately, the restaurant was closed for holidays - we appreciated the fact that he tried for 2 days and kept us informed and made other suggestions.
