What We Love

  • Located near Montmartre on the fringes of nightlife hub, Pigalle
  • This is an experience hotel created around some of Paris's most famous monuments
  • Three different mood-lighting scenarios in guestrooms
  • Bathrooms with hydrojets showers and chromotherapy
  • Double windows ensure excellent soundproofing
  • WiFi and use of the gym, sauna and Turkish bath in the basement are free
  • The hotel is best suited to couples, though it's possible to have connecting rooms for families

What To Know

  • Book a Discovery Room and you'll be allocated one of the theme rooms on arrival. You'll also get to check out different rooms on subsequent nights (subject to availability)
  • Very calm atmosphere — a place for a tranquil break rather than hotel buzz
  • On the fringes of Pigalle, well located for exploring Montmartre, but you'll need to take the nearest Metro (the Place de Clichy Metro stop) for most of the main sights
  • There's no restaurant, but there's a room service agreement with a nearby restaurant (except on Sunday) for hot dishes; simple snacks can be prepared on-site
  • Some Moulin Rouge rooms have only the hydrojet showers
  • A $3 city tax per night will be collected at the hotel

no one there spoke English! I tried to talk to people and when they responded I had no idea what they were saying. when I tried to bring my pet ferret, they made him leave, so I had to sneak him in by hiding him under my shirt. I am in a lot of pain from his little claws. 5 stars

The perfect honeymoon hotel
Reviewed 5 days ago

We stayed at the Hotel Design Secret for only one night at the end of our honeymoon but wished we could have stayed longer.
It was the perfect venue for us-the wonderful district of Montmatre on our doorstep and although we had little time we managed to see the whole of Paris from the Sacre Cour.
Our Opera room was fabulous: had beautiful atmosphere and we very much enjoyed the jacuzzi. The whole hotel had a wonderful ambiance and was beautiful-we loved hearing about the concept and the history.

However, absolutely the best thing about the hotel was the people that work there.

We were greeted by Pierre and he was incredibly welcoming and helped us immensely with a problem with pye luggage-personally helping us find someone to repair it for us.

I can honestly say we did not receive such fantastic service anywhere else on our trip and this included a 5* grand hotel in Prague and the Belmond Orient Express!!!

The other staff also couldn't have been more helpful-getting our room ready early and continually giving us help and advice for our stay.

Thank you all so much for making our stay such a wonderful experience.

Charming little boutique hotel
Reviewed 7 days ago

The Hotel Design Secret is a charming little place not far from Place de Clichy in the 9th Arrondissement, situated in a quieter part of town but still within walking distance of the Metro (at Place de Clichy) and, if you’re up for a slightly longer walk, Sacre-Coeur and the Opera Garnier. The price was reasonable for a small boutique hotel, definitely bang for the buck. Rooms are small, but typical for Paris. Smartly decorated and themed to Paris landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and Musee d’Orsay. Our room, the Eiffel Tower room, had a jetted jacuzzi tub (for one) and rainfall shower in a compact glass enclosed bathroom, along with an LCD TV and firm but comfortable bed. AC was quite good during a warm few October days in Paris. Snacks are available downstairs for a fee, and they do serve a modest breakfast in the morning (we didn’t get a chance to do it). Staff was friendly and spoke English, and graciously offered us recommendations and directions to sights around Paris. Only downside is that this location is not right next to any of the tourist attractions, so you will do a good bit of walking and/or taking the metro. But we didn’t mind, and had a great stay!

Couldn’t ask for better!

We just returned from Paris and we were reminiscing about our trip. Both couples absolutely loved this hotel. We were blown away by the service we received from their front desk staff, in particular we loved interacting with Matthieu! He made some excellent dinner suggestions for us and his personality was superb! Do not hesitate to book this hotel! The location is excellent. For first time Visitors to Paris, location is VERY important so we could get easy access to the metro and have walkable distances to major attractions.

The breakfast that was included was simple but DELICIOUS! The pastries are delivered fresh every morning at 6am....you will not find a better croissant anywhere...believe me...we tried!!! Lol.
