During the haute couture fashion week in July 2013, I stayed two nights at the Sezz Hotel. The four-star design boutique hotel, opened in 2005, is located in the 16th arrondissement in a quiet street and offers 26 rooms.
I liked the design of my spacious and very bright room with noble and natural material, specially designed furniture, the Zen-like atmosphere, the big bathroom and the Aqua di Parma products. The floors are laid with wide boards of dark wood and covered with deep pile tomato red or mustard tone rugs. The walls are made of grey stone from Cascais. The teak finish desk is perfect for working a few hours with the laptop. All rooms have free wifi access, flat screens and CD-DVD players.
The service at my arrival at the hotel was excellent. I was offered a welcome-drink (a fresh orange juice) and informed about the facilities of the hotel. While I waited for my room to be finished, an employee took my suitcase to my room and checked if everything was okay. The staff of the hotel is very friendly, especially the night receptionist and SÃ©bastien.
I didn’t have the time to go to the Spa Sezz by Payot, which offers clients a relaxing setting with a jacuzzi, a hammam and a massage room, as well as various treatments for ladies and gentlemen.
If you like champagne, you should have a drink at the bar of the hotel, the Bar La Grande Dame by Veuve Clicquot. It offers alcoves in the shape of rose petals and sits under a tall, narrow atrium window.
I liked my stay at the Hotel Sezz very much and can really recommend it. The only problem that occurred was the poor isolation of the hotel. The first night I woke up at 1 am, because the guests of the adjacent room had just come back and were anything but quiet. The second night, I woke up at 3 pm, because an American guy entered the adjacent room, had a loud chat with a friend, and later on called a woman in the US and put his iPhone on speaker. I could follow nearly the whole conversation from my adjacent room. My knocking on the door didn’t impress him much. But apart from that, everything was perfect.
