We spent 3 nights here. This exquisite place is like home away from home. We arrived at noon time, located the address. It was on small but busy street. The door was tight shut. We rang the door bell. A gentleman in black rimmed glasses answered the door with a warm “bonjour” and big smile. A couple steps up, we entered the small reception area. Immediately coffee was brought to us. He started to chat with us like an old friend while checking us in. His relaxing manner put us at ease and made us feel at home right away.
Our room was on the top floor. We were initially surprised and a bit disappointed by the tiny space. We did not expect the room to be that small. After a day here, we found out that actually size did not matter. Everything needed was at your fingertip, compact and right where you needed. Nice shower, all the toiletry necessities, reusable bottles of drinking water, small snacks, phone calls, everything a traveler may need was available, all free of charge!
The room was simply decorated, but with quality. The floor window was draped with beautiful cotton curtains. The bed linens were of the best quality, clean, soft, fresh and new. So comfortable that it felt like a shower room in IKEA.
As we were new to Paris, we had questions about navigating the area and planning for meals. The staff was always so extremely patient recommending places and restaurants to us, like a family friend. Sometimes in doubt, they would go online, google for us and print out the map for us.
We were offered an IPAD, which we thought was a great idea, but we had our laptops with us which was enough. I did not think free breakfast was included as we never had breakfast here.
After 3 days here, we felt almost attached to this little cozy hotel. What a little haven this tiny hotel is! It is home away from home for any travelers!
After Paris, we flew to Courchevel, supposedly the world’s most expensive ski resort and stayed at a fancy hotel at Courchevel 1850. I am sorry to say, Le Citizen is more superior in every possible way in its unpretentious and unassuming manner!
