What to Expect in a Boutique Hotel in Paris

In Paris, hotel rooms are small, even in many luxury hotels. But what they lack in space, they make up in charm. Boutique hotels are "intimate" (another way of saying "small") – and often Paris hotel elevators are even more intimate!

Don't be suprised if your hotel elevator the size of a closet with barely enough room for one person and a suitcase! Remember, Paris is an old city with old buildings, and elevators were an afterthought, fit into whatever space could be found.

Many Paris hotel breakfast rooms are found in the cellar, but breakfasts can be expensive. Save money and get a better Parisian experience – head to a local boulangerie or café for a more satisfying petit déjeuner (breakfast) of coffe and croissant or other freshly baked pastries.

Service in boutique hotels in Paris is usually very good. The front desk will be able to help you make dinner reservations and recommend the best things to find in the neighborhood.
