    VIBE

    When we hear “cozy bed-and-breakfast housed in a 17th century bakery,” we think country-kitsch clutter and fresh-from-oven croissants. But when it comes to Hôtel du Petit Moulin, clearly we thought wrong–with Christian Lacroix masterminding the outrageous interior design (the 17 rooms range from Baroque to Scandinavian minimalist to downright frightening), top-of-the-range treats like slick tech amenities and posh linens, and a coolly hands-off take on service, this is certainly no snuggly mom-and-pop joint. Space is limited and amenities are pretty much nonexistent, but the high-design rooms keep a well-heeled, fashion-savvy set of patrons coming.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    Obviously the Lacroix interiors are a big draw–such a refreshing change from the staid traditionalism of this city’s many, many grandes dames. What better than to match our couture shopping adventures with funky couture digs? And when we’re not out on the shop, the surrounding Le Marais district, with its winding medieval streets, is a great area for café hopping, sightseeing, and generally living la vie bohémienne.

    AMENITY WE LOVE

    The Christian Lacroix-designed interiors.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    More amenities. Besides a tiny, lonely bar, there’s not much to do on site. Definitely a spot for independent-minded travelers who don’t require much service or assistance. We had a bit of trouble controlling the temperature in our room–it was either really hot and stuffy or cold (but could have just been us).

    GOOD TO KNOW

    Laundry and dry cleaning services available. Small pets allowed.
