Top 5 B&Bs in Paris - as rated by our guests!

2 Thousand and Heaven!
Our guests rate our top 5 Paris B&Bs for the year that was…and its unanimous…our hosts are the WINNERS!!

We are a personalised B&B service that allows Australian guests to meet Paris 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 immaculate, but it’s the meeting of new people and friends that make for a truly memorable experience - and that’s true of any travel adventure!

Number 5: B&B342
– Dom and Erik’s home in the Denfert-Rochereau district.

Guests loved Dom and Erik, who included them in their family life and went beyond expected levels of service i.e. accompanying guests to pick up hire cars, assisting with language barriers, offering afternoon tea daily. Guests are given their own en suite living area but ALL preferred to spend time with Dom and Erik in their own family area never feeling uneasy or unwelcome - a fabulous testimony to the intimacy we promise our guests for an authentic Parisian life when staying at one of our B&Bs! 

Number 4: B&B371 – Monique’s B&B in the 17th arrondissement – Batignolles!

We think Gypsy; the gorgeous little terrier that lives at this B&B is reason enough to love it! But our guests said it was Monique’s delightful nature; attentive hospitality ensuring they were always comfortable is what made their stay memorable and enjoyable. They loved her diverse breakfasts, the terraces, views of the Eiffel, the location with so many restaurants and cafes close by, but mostly…just Monique herself! 

Number 3: B&B241/359 – Located exclusively on the Isl Saint Louis on le Seine
(View this B&B here)

SO many declarations about Carol’s friendliness, welcoming nature, her advice and the time and attention she gives to the needs of each of our guests! On top of this, the immaculately presented B&B made our guests stay comfortable and special. Our guests 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 a hit and finally breakfast was a standout too with fresh platters served professionally with music playing in the background!

Number 2: B&B333 – located in a residential area in the 15th near Parc Georges Brassens - Feel the authenticity and richness of an area virtually free of tourists and full of everyday Parisian charm. (View this B&B here)

Guests become friends at Janine and Alains B&B333! Its not surprising since Janine and Alain do not offer their home and B&B for the income (neither of them need it) but purely for the love of meeting new people, offering authentic experiences and perfecting their B&B service…and guest sense this genuine welcome and hospitality! Janine keeps the B&B immaculate and guests are awestruck by her attentiveness. Guests rate this B&B also for its space, comfort and amenities.


Number 1: B&B368 - Chantal’s B&B in the 9th (Opera, Madeleine, Concorde).
(View this B&B here)

Inundated with amazing feedback for our hosts, Janine and Joe, who our guests love so much they are requesting, return bookings a year in advance. 

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 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 advice. I would 100% recommend this B&B 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”.

Au Revoir
