Welcome to Peets place! A traditional classic and very typical beautiful and elegant Parisian building and home located on rue Lafayette, within minutes of Gare du Nord Main train station and major department stores, overall a very desirable central part of Paris that is easy to reach all main sights and neighbourhoods either on foot or by short metro ride.
At our new and classic B&B our guests will find a most thoughtful B&B with a very warm, inviting atmosphere to share with our hospitable host Peet, a chef and gastronomic foodie (who also offers a private studio upstairs for those who prefer their own living space and independence); who offers his guests a gourmet homecooked meal (for groups of 5+ at 35euro p/p). Peet is a B&B professional and is enthusiastic to meet travellers and welcome them into his private family-style home as old friends. Peet offers guests 5 guest bedrooms in this large 2 story Paris dwelling that is looked after to a very high quality B&B standard.
Peet is Dutch has been living in Paris for 12 years and has been offering his B&B since moving to Paris. The B&B activity and service is one his is very passionate about, feels great fulfilment from and he devotes his full time energy to it as his main work. He loves to meet travelers, look after them like family and to share his city with them, divulging all his city tips an secrets. Peet speaks excellent English, fluent French and Dutch.
A special note from Peet:
Welcome to my home!
In the past years I have taken care of hundreds of guests visiting Paris for pleasure or for business. I have learned a lot, on how to please our distinctive guests, by offering beautiful rooms, a very nice breakfast, and a lot of tips where to go, what to do and how to get there. I have learned to listen to my guests and have spent hours at the breakfast table chatting with them.
MY guests originate from all over the world. So I feel like travelling every day, from South Africa to Norway, and from Japan to Argentina. I have made great and true friends all over the world. The experience gathered in these first years, has enabled me to improve our service even more!
I offer you beautiful rooms right in the centre of Paris in our home. Rooms personalized by my taste, often found all over the world during one of our trips. I am not a hotel, so do not expect the services some hotels offer you. I do offer you a personal welcome, and a warm home away from home! It is a joy and an enormous pleasure to receive you as a guest in my home! We hope to see you soon!"
About the Building and B&B:
The building dates from the Haussman era, with wooden floors, high ceilings with ornaments, fireplaces etc that comes with buildings of this era. The apartment is on the 2nd floor with lifts. Peet will do everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The furniture has been selected for your comfort.
There are 5 guest rooms offered here and all but 2 guestrooms must share one bathroom and there is wifi in each room and throughout the entire home. To see full details of each room please click on room images above.
These typical Parisian buildings were constructed in days where bathrooms were not as important or necessary to have multiple bathrooms. It’s impossible to install bathrooms in all of the guest rooms without destroying the original features at this B&B - but our hosts are happy that they are able to offer 2 newly installed bathrooms in 2 out of the 5 rooms.
PLEASE NOTE: This is one of our B&Bs where the other guest rooms will be booked out to other guests and this may include women and men together. Families, couples etc. For women who do not mind sharing a B&B with their male counterparts.
About the Bathrooms:
The bathrooms are also to be shared between guests though please note: our host is
extremely particular and cleans them several times a day. So
you’ll always find a clean bathroom. If anything is missed, guests can
always ask Peet to clean it before using.However this is a rare occurence as Peet is incredibly attentive to this.
The shower room and bathroom are spacious with all towels and linens provided and basic toiletries, though basic and practical in design and style. Between the 2 bathrooms there is both tub and shower.
Peet loves to prepare for his guests nice breakfasts served in the living each day. HE loves to bake and offer a variety of homemade goodies. On weekdays it is served between 8 and 9.30 AM and in the weekends between 9 and 10 AM!
Breakfast is served in the typical Haussman dining room and consists of tea, coffee, orange juice, fresh croissants, toasts, cereal, fruits, homemade bread, cakes and jams but also cheese, eggs and ham - and often a little surprise.
These morning encounters are also the perfect time to exchange ideas with Peet, share experiences and of course get some advice to fully optimize your stay in Paris. Peet loves to offer as much as he can around his busy B&B service of breakfast serving and hosting, all the local insider knowledge about the neighbourhood and Paris that one could want.
He is also something of a gourmandise, and can offer information about the best local fromagerie, chocolateries, boulangeries, restaurants, cafes as well as how to reach all the usual sights and attractions.
- On request if several guests are interested to participate Peet loves to cook a nice dinner. He serves the best of the French home cooking, influenced by other cuisines from all over the world. If you dine out in one of the numerous great Parisian restaurants, he can gladly recommend you some great restaurants all over Paris. To request a home cooked dinner please select this at checkout.
- If you stay for a longer period of time or if you are travelling around, Peet can take care of your dirty linen.
- If you want to organize a trip amongst friends or relatives, Peet can help you to get the best out of your stay in Paris, or even organize your stay with a certain theme!
