How to Get There
We booked this on the recommendation of the Mrs and Mrs Smith website, and it fitted the bill perfectly for our weekend away - a stylish hotel with a trendy bar downstairs, in a good location on the edge of Montmartre.
Sunday Brunch was very good with high quality buffet type servings. It's known as having the best granola in all of Paris and it did not disappoint. Very good food and I will return.
I recommend getting a reservation form 12 noon on.
The decoration of the hotel is very nice and I think this was an old hotel that had been decorated and re-branded. The sound-proofing between the room and the corridor is horrendous (not helped by some pretty loud people staying in the two rooms opposite us). Also our room had a quite interesting smell in it - not horrendous but a bit foodish. We had a french window onto a lovely green balcony so the smell was easily dealt with that way. Bathroom was very spacious and cleaned beautifully each day. In fact the housekeeping did a fantastic job (I'm quite fussy)
Not mush space to store folded items we had to use the open shelving which rather takes away from the interior design but ho-hum. Lighting in the room was pretty moody which I don't dislike but if your eyes aren't too good it could be a bit annoying.
They pride themselves on cocktails... I'm sure if you visit during the 'bar hours' they're great but we visited late on Friday afternoon, no cocktails, many wines on the menu were not available. The man working in the bar was not exactly forthcoming about what would be possible but we did end up with two very pleasant glasses of white wine (which were so enjoyable we had another).
The breakfast was unusually good! Lovely granola, fromage blanc, pastries (I think from the bakery next door) and coffee (could do with more of a ration of Nespresso pods in the room! There were only 2 per day! I'm sure they could afford to include 4 or 6 per night for a couple...)
Despite the few minor problems this is a lovely comfortable place to stay in a really interesting part of Paris - thank you everyone for making our stay special....
stayed here for three nights and check in were friendly but unorganised, wrong keys given,room numbers not matching keys,wrong wi fi code etc but all sorted eventually.
tip-when you go out you leave your key so make sure you check which key you are given on return as we were given wrong one on couple of occasions, rooms nicely decorated but small and virtually no storage or table space and our bathroom was laughingly small but others in our group were luckier,small balcony in room and ours faced busy side but noise didnt bother me as i sleep like a bear and enjoy a few drinks of an evening.No English channel on tv but DAB radio in room,rooms cleaned to a high standard. Cant comment on bar prices because after seeing prices of drinks and snacks in room it put us off!, there is a cracking bar opposite hotel that is reasonable,5e a pint and 6e for cocktails [happy hour seems to last all night] staff very friendly and a delightfully rude and obnoxious owner who thinks hes clever but is just a comical fool. Area quite run down and just a heads up this is smack bang in the middle of the red light district with brothels,sex shops and sex shows all around it [but not in your face] we found restaurants in area poor but walked up towards the Montmarte area wher we had some fantastic meals in little bistros and restaurants.Travelling around Paris was easy on the Metro but its very run down and nowhere near the standard of London underground [station 2 minutes from hotel] and we got the 3 day travel pass for 25e which is great value. Avoid central Paris on Sunday as the yellow vest protests are causing a lot of disruption, we were pushed back up the Champs Elysses [not literally] by the police as they thought they were going to head up towards the Arc De Triomphe and the ammount of damage from previous weekends riots is everywhere,smashed windows,graffiti etc.
A small gem of a hotel, Le Grand Pigalle was our perfect base of operations for a Valentine’s Day trip to Paris - with a corner room complete with wraparound balcony, spacious bathroom, supple bedding, a delicious cocktail menu, and more, it’s all we needed. Our rooms were beautifully kept spotless and refreshed daily by staff, who would come around every evening with a jar of cookies to ask how we were liking our room. 24/7 room service is no slouch (just don’t try ordering alcohol after the bar closes like we did!) and breakfast was beautifully arranged on a tray brought to our bed. The property is clean and thoughtfully decorated, and the 24/7 front NBdesk staff who was happy to correct our spotty French and speak English to us was very helpful.
