Explore Paris at Hotel Secret de Paris****

Paris is full of Design Boutique Hotels but Hotel Secret de Paris**** has its own identity. Hotel Secret de Paris is a charming boutique hotel in the heart of the 9th arrondissement.

If you are looking to avoid crowed places full of tourists and prefer to stay in an area where real parisians live, this place is yours ! Quite a good way to experience parisian way of life :) But be relieved, the hotel is centrally located with easy access to all major attractions.

Concept :
Hotel Secret de Paris is a small boutique hotel with only 29 rooms, which gives it a very cozy atmosphere. The concept of the Hotel Secret is to give you the privilege to sleep in very special places : parisian monuments !

Different universes can be explored : Eiffel Tower, Musée d'Orsay, Moulin Rouge or Opéra Garnier. The hotel provides also an other romantic atmosphere, the bedroom of a parisian artist. Choose the one that matches the best your envy and your mood !

First stop will be at the lobby where you will discover a very unique chair, called "confident", inspired from the 17th century. This way, you can talk to the person seating next to you to whisper secrets in a very discreet way.... Aren't you the Hotel Secret ?!! ;)

Arrival :
When you enter into the lobby, check in will be done in a lovely small reception. The staff is very warm and welcoming and knows how to customize the service. They will guide to your room like a VIP and show you around.
Two ways to go to your room : a cozy elevator full of mirrors, reflecting an infinite image of yourself or stairs in wrought iron  like in real parisian appartment...

Guestrooms :
I decided not to choose the atmosphere of my room in order to be surprised. And what a surprise, I was about to spend the night in a totally red room, the Moulin Rouge !
I was quite anxious at the beginning as I though red would excite me way too much and I would not be able to sleep... But that was completly the opposite. The bed was very confortable and curtains are very thick so you are dived into a very intimate atmosphere. Rue de Clichy can be quite noisy but the quadrule windows will preserve you from the turbulence of the city. It's like beeing in a cocoon or in a secret frame.

Once you are in the room, you really have the feeling to be in the backstages of the Moulin Rouge or in the private bedroom of one of the dancers. Cushions in leather, dancers on the wall, black modern lamps and fake windows with views on the aisle of the Moulin drive you directly to the so famous "Paris by Night". What a glamourous bedroom !

Apart from this, all modern amenities you would need are here. Free Wifi, Air Conditionning and most of all, such a design bathroom, a must of technology ! As it is the trend in comptemporary hotels, the bedroom is opened to a transparent bathroom. I was staying there with a girlfriend and was not that confortable about this. The staff replied to me with lots of humour : There is No secret at the Hotel Secret... And finally everything was fine. Thanks to a smart lighting effect, the bathroom is not transparent at the half bottom, so you can keep your intimacy :)

The bathroom is very modern and sophisticated. After a day of shopping, relax under the waterjet shower... The hotel is also quite generous with lots of Azzaro amenities.

If you are not relaxed enough with the massage under the shower, take a look to their green hammam... a little escape into a wet jungle !

Breakfast :
After such a good sleep, it was time for me to feed my stomack with a parisian breakfast. The buffet does not offer a huge quantity of food but offers instead a very good quality of selected products, which is far much better ! Crispy cereals, croissants with a real taste of butter, fresh orange juice, fruit salad and delicatassen, none of the ingredients of a proper breakfast was missing. Once again, the staff makes the difference. They pay attention to you, making sure we have your eggs and your coffee the way you want to have it. There are so lovely, looking for your satisfaction. It's nowadays more and more rare in Paris to find staff who really cares about.

Originality of the experience and welcoming staff are the two main reasons I would definitly recommend this pearl for your next stay in Paris !

To Sump up, I recommend the Hotel Secret de Paris for :
- Real parisian life location
- Original experience with different designs and atmospheres
- Kindness of the staff
