"Our comfort was better than for any hotel we have stayed in. It was better than described and we will use this site again and recommend it to others. It was a great piece of luck when I stumbled on this site while googling others" ...
Gisèle took a motherly interest in making sure we knew the best bus/ metro route for our daily excursions. She helped us in everyway that a good Parisian friend would do if you were a guest in their home. When we had to leave early she offered to give us early breakfast and then walked us to our bus to take us to Gare du Nord and ensured that we caught the right one at the bus stop.
For breakfast we felt that a feast had been set before us. There was enough breakfast for half a dozen guests! Gisèle urged us to make provision for ourselves from the breakfast table for a picnic during the day, which we did. We looked forward to Giseles breakfast as a superb holiday treat each day.
She knew many things from personal experience and freely advised us saving many waisted hours. The central location and the quietness of our room was a perfect background for its comfort and the confident helpfulness of Gisèle, our new Parisian friend. We now feel that Gisèle is our very special friend and that we would love to stay with her again when Paris is on our agenda. We have learnt a lot from her.
D.NOONAN - January 2015
Petite Paris has provided us with a unique experience when visiting Paris. Living in a Parisian's home gives you the opportunity to enrich your visit way beyond hotels. The service provided by Petit Paris is unique. The attention to detail means their are few hiccups when visiting such a beautiful city. It was an amazing experience for us when we visited Paris on 2 short trips. We just loved it and will be recommending Petite Paris to family and friends. Thank you Regina, you were marvellous with your support and finding us accommodation at a moments notice. The accommodation was wonderful . We really feel as if we were allowed a unique insight into Parisian homes. Our hosts were attentive without being overbearing. The accommodation was comfortable and gave us the freedom to enjoy different areas of Paris"
Dear Regina, Your help and true professionalism has made this search and booking so easy and a pleasure.
We are looking forward to our short stay knowing it will be such a wonderful experience for us. I am sure we will be sorry that we didn’t allocate more time to our stay in Paris – especially when you have found us a true Parisian gem. With grateful thanks, Margaret
We have stayed in many Bed and Breakfasts in Europe and the states. Your website is the best I've seen. Our highest recommendation is that we would stay there again and we would recommend it to anybody.
Petite Paris is fantastic site that i would definitely recommend to friends visiting paris, The communication was very effective. Any time I asked a question, I received a response sooner than I expected.
“Indeed we have had a wonderful stay. So glad you recommended Chantal's B&B. she is fantastic. Can not fault anything. Very professional, warm and caring with such charm and grace. Breakfasts were always sumptuous explorations of French bread, pastry and of course, fromage! Thank you to Petit B&B and of course huge thanks and gratitude to Chantal and Joe who made our stay so memorable”..
“Hi Regina, I made a note about your service a couple of months ago I think it was, in The Good Weekend Newspaper. They also featured a couple of other online sites such as Airbnb and Worldwide-accom.com. Whilst they may be good, they don’t have a patch on the excellent service you offer. I really like the idea of engaging with the owner and being in a true B&B. The others are more ‘remote’ and not personal at all.
I wish you had a service in some other cities as well. Maybe some potential for future expansion in partnership with someone else perhaps?
I am so glad that I noted down your web site in my notebook those few months ago!”
"We are so glad we “discovered” you in the Weekend Australian last weekend. We are very impressed and grateful for your efficient and friendly service. We know that the B&B stay will be a highlight of our visit to Paris. We have already received an e-mail from Genevieve and she has made us feel most welcome. Thank you once again. If not before we will be in contact after we return".
“Petite Paris is a lovely site to get lost in. The perfect charming accompaniment to my afternoon tea”
“You have made organizing accommodation in Paris so easy for us and now we have a beautiful apartment in the heart of the city. We will continue to recommend your website to all our friends. Thank you for the travel tips. It is always helpful to have this information from those who know the city. We are just so excited to see our trip come together and so appreciate all of your assistance provided in such a friendly helpful and efficient manner”
“We were very satisfied with Petite Paris and the booking service too, they were extremely helpful with a great secure setup and payment system and will will definitely use the service again for the next trip”
"Thank you so much we're very much looking forward to Paris next week! Alain and Janine have been wonderfully helpful and given us instructions on the best way to get to the B&B via train from the airport. We are incredibly excited and so very grateful to you for all your wonderful help & advice. All the little books and suggestions you provided are safely tucked into my luggage!!"
"I have never stayed at a B&B before and was not really sure what to expect. Chantal and Joe were friendly, helpful and provided a great insight into Paris. I stayed with my 7-year-old daughter and Chantal and Joe went out of their way to provide extra special treats for her. Our room had fresh water and biscuits, and a numerous resources for getting around and seeing Paris. We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast, there was always an huge choice of bread and pastries and Chantal paid particular notice of my daughters choices to ensure that they were always there again the next day. I would 100% recommend this B&B and would only ever stay here on our return"
“Chantal was a friendly, helpful host who went out of her way for us – breakfast was exceptional and she found gluten free products for my wife and recommended restaurants. The room was as comfortable as the 5 star hotels we’ve stayed in. Clean, bright and the perfect base to see Paris from. We chatted with Chantal over tea and she gave us excellent directions, suggested a music recital at the Madeleine Church which proved a most memorable experience of our holiday. We were looking to have a more personal connection with Paris and the Parisian way of life and we were very satisfied on both counts”
“This was the most wonderful B&B! Excellent accommodation, Genevieve & Jean Claude were charming, helpful and provided us with tips/places to visit and booked restaurants for us. Very helpful info on transport and modes of transport too. The whole apartment was comfortable and stylishly furnished. Fabulous breakfast served on linen tablecloth with linen napkins, the table setting was of great quality & style and the food was great”
“We were very happy with the petit Paris B&B service & with our selection of Giselle & Frederic’s B&B in the Marais. It was very central to so many things within walking distance. Giselle is very informative and provides a really good diversity for breakfast. We have already told other people about Petite Paris and would certainly recommend your service"
"Carol made our stay in Paris very memorable. We felt safe, we had her contact details if needed, nothing was too much trouble for her to help us-even did the ironing!! Loved to talk, was interested in what we did/where we went etc. Very generous with breakfasts - beautifully presented & served to us. fresh fruit different every day, music in the background. shared the table with the other guests. We highly recommend this service"
"Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in Paris. Herve's apartment was perfect. Giving us a taste of Parisienne life. Herve was a fantastic host. He would come over every day and either leave us messages or small gifts of food, but if we were at the apartment he would sit and chat about different things to do in Paris or about life in general, making our stay even more personal. Will recommend your company to our friends. Thank you again”
"Monique was an absolute delight. She was very accommodating and did everything to make our stay comfortable. She was extremely helpful with local knowledge and suggestions which we enjoyed following. The guest room was spotless and the photos exactly as we saw on the website. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and slightly different each day - always freshly purchased each morning...delicious! We always took longer than expected to eat breakfast as we chatted with Monique, it was a lovely way to start the day, especially with the gorgeous views”
“The best part about the B&B was mostly our host, the fantastic location and especially good company was Gypsy, the Westie, it made us realise how much we missed our dogs. We also loved the lovely terraces with views of Eiffel tower, Arc De Triumph, Sacre Coeur and all those fabulous chimney pots. A beautifully decorated apartment close to everything"
"We felt at home there in a way I had not expected. We were included in their family life. Our apartment was beautiful with art books galore. They helped with online bookings and Erik went with Lloyd to collect our car to drive on to the Loire. We couldn't have been happier. We had a huge, comfortable bed with soft pillows and beautiful linen. Erik brought us tea early every morning and always offered it on our return each day. We were extremely comfortable and welcome in dining room and sitting room even though we had our own upstairs”
“Very friendly & informative booking process. Quick & efficient too. I have recommended you to many Paris-bound friends! Thank you for a wonderful experience in Paris”
“We are extremely grateful to Petite Paris in Sydney for co ordinating and arranging our booking and for providing such friendly, helpful and practical advice at every step of the journey.
We even received an additional tip from Petite Paris whilst we were actually in Paris, to visit the Grande Mosque for afternoon tea......and this proved to be yet another unmissable highlight and a truly wonderful experience. Thank you dear Regina for your wonderful help and advice and for always being so unfailingly cheerful and friendly! We look forward to staying in touch and hopefully one day booking another holiday in Paris!!”
“I just wanted to let you know that we had a lovely stay at Marie-Claude's B&B in Paris. The whole family welcomed us with warm and friendliness. I would certainly recommend their B&B as it was beautiful! We enjoyed Paris even though it rained two of the three days but we still walked everywhere and explored the sights! Thank you for all your help in arranging our accommodation and if ever I require B&B accommodation again, I will certainly contact you”.
"Being from England you would think booking through an Australian website would be a peculiar thing to do. However, the choice of UK based Paris Bed and Breakfast websites were poor quality with little choice. What may be even more surprising is that I have a contact in France who recommended this website to me. Anyway, to say that the service, ease of booking and quality of website that Petite Paris delivered was "par excellence. I requested a specific accommodation type suitable for privacy (Father and 16 year old Daughter) within a budget and what was offered was exactly as required. Myself and my daughter would go back tomorrow. I am not sure we could have been better sited - there are 4 metro stations very close, the RER (Luxemburg) direct from CDG is literally 5 minutes walk (with luggage) away and plenty of bus stops. It made getting to and from our desired locations very easy. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean and our hosts very accommodating. Anne, our host, was very helpful offering us a few tips on the best way to get to and from our various points of interest. She was there when needed but did not intrude. Thank you Anne. We are missing the breakfasts already!!! Both myself and my daughter enjoyed breakfast immensely. These were varied and plentiful and set us up for the day".
