2thousand & heaven - our top 5 Paris B&Bs

Bonjour friends! As this year hurls itself uncontrollably to an end; we're reflecting back and have decided 2011should be changed to 2 thousand and heaven - it was a our first full year of operation and a huge success and it definitely felt like a little bit of heaven!

But even more so im sure, for those guests who actaully WENT to Paris!  And so as rated by our wonderful guests here are the top 5 B&Bs in Paris for the year from Petite Paris!! p.s you may start to notice a certain theme..

Number 5: B&B342 (View this B&B here) Located in the Denfert-Rochereau district (14eme)
What did guests say they loved about this B&B? The genuine and magnificent hosts Dom and Erik, who included them in their family life and went above and beyond the expected levels of service such as accompanying guests to pick up hire cars to assist with langauge barriers, offering afternoon teas everyday!. Guests also loved the quaint arty feel of the B&B and all the art books available and ALL of them boasted about the super comfy bed and quality linens and pillows. Funnily, even though guests are given their own ensuite living area next to their bedroom EVERY SINGLE guest said they preferred to spend time together with Dom and Erik in their own family living area - never for a moment feeling uneasy or unwelcome!
We think this is a fabulous testimony to the intimacy we promise our guests for an authentic Parisian life in Paris when they stay at one of our B&Bs!

Number 4: B&B84 (View the B&B here) Located in Montmartre (18eme)
Whats so great about having your own private self contained apartment thats full of creative and arty decor, a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom all set in Montmartre the artistic romantic village of old world Paris?? Um.... how about Herve the host who left our guests little daily messages and gifts of chocolates and other delicacies around the apartment as a surprise for when they returned to the apartment each day, or sat with them for lovely afternoon chats showing off his very charming and humorous character and offering lots of tips and advice on what to see and whats on! But thats just what our guests said... :)

Number 3: B&B371 (View the B&B here) Located in the 17eme
We think Gypsy, the gorgeous little terrier that lives at this B&B with your host Monique is reason enough to love this B&B! But our guests have said other things (as well as Gyspy) made this B&B fantastic! Moniques delightful nature, and her attentive hospitality ensuring guests were all comfortable always, the diverse breakys - always something new and delicious each day, the terraces with the views of the eiffel were a welcome each day, the location and having so many restaurants, cafes, laundromats and other necessities within walking distance. oh and many many comments on the cleanliness of the B&B!

Number 2: B&B241 (View the B&B here) Located in the Island Saint Louis (4eme)
Yet again the highlight of this B&B was first up: Carol the host! We recieved so many reviews absolutely RAVING, BOASTING about Carols friendliness, welcoming nature, her advice and the time and attention she gave to the needs of each of our guests! On top of this, how immaculately presented the apartment and B&B was with carol's little touches that made all the difference such as daily flowers in guests rooms, chocolate gifts etc. Our guests ALL said they felt like long lost friends of Carols, not merely paying guests and many have remained in contact with her. Carols knowledge of Paris was also regularly commented on finally breakfast was a standout too! Fresh platters served professionally and music playing in the background. Some guests shared the apartment with other guests and all commented on how they loved starting each morning with a delicious breaky with other couples (new friends) at Carols home!


WINNER: B&B368 (View it here) In the famous triange Madaleine, Concorde, Opera (9eme)
An the winner is Chantal and Joe!!!! Inundated with nothing but love and appreciation for this amazing couple who our guests love so much they are requesting return bookings a year in advance. Not kidding! When we book this B&B we are so excited for the guests knowing they have booked a winner!
Here's what the last guests had to say:


"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 very very satisfied on both counts”


“The accommodation was perfect, clean and bright. But the reason it was so special was Chantal. She was a great host, always thinking of what we needed and suggesting how to get around and offering great advise. I would 100% recommend this BnB and would only ever stay here on our return.
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”.

So there you have it. The top 5 from Petite Paris B&B.  What makes us so special and unique is that we deliver what we promise! - a B&B service thats personable that allows guests to meet locals, make friends, experience authentic Parisian life and to feel welcomed and looked after by our amazing, friendly and professional hosts in an inclusive intimate setting! The apartments are all great of course, but its the meeting of new people and friends that make for a truly memorable experience - and thats true of any travel adventure!

We hope to have many more B&Bs added to our roster in 2012! Stay tuned! xx
