We, too, chose the Millesime based on Tripadvisor, and were completely satisfied. My husband, myself, and our two young adult children arrived very early and the hotel stored our bags so we could walk around and enjoy lunch until our rooms were ready. The superior rooms are quite roomy by European standards, with comfortable beds, a desk, small dining table, and a big closet for clothes and suitcases. The bathroom was large and nicely tiled, with a very warm, powerful shower and nice toiletries. We were surprised how quiet it was, considering the room was right on the street.
As a convenience we ate breakfast at the hotel and were again not disappointed. The breakfast room is lovely and the pastries are divine. Josette was a wonderfully friendly personality to wake up to each morning!
Yes, the best part of this place is the staff. Our French is pretty bare-bones, and everyone we met at the front desk spoke excellent English. We particularly want to thank Konstantin and Giada for their help and recommendations.
The Millesime is located in Ste. Germain section, which we found to be perfect for us as first-time travelers to Paris. There were all sorts of shops, cafes, and restaurants within short walking distance, as well as 3 different Metro stops. Also, you can easily walk to the Louvre, Orsay, and Notre Dame.
We would recommend Au 35 down the street for dinner and Amorino on Rue Buci for gelato.
By the way, with the winter promotion, we got 6 nights for the price of 5, including a one-way airport transfer. The Millesime is a winner!
