In the bustling 9th Arrondissement, Hotel R de Paris is a serene 40-room retreat. The white-on-white color scheme extends from the orchids in the lobby to the marble fireplaces to the walls, and the alabaster tones are broken up with silver mosaic in the bathrooms and checkered carpeting in the hallways.
Bed and Bath
The 40 air-conditioned rooms combine contemporary design and classic touches. The large beds are backed by giant beige or mustard headboards into which the bedside and reading lamps are set. Several of the rooms feature white marble fireplaces in which flames leap at the flick of a switch. The rooms incorporate high-tech gadgets with a minimum of intrusion: TVs are imbedded in the mantelpiece mirrors, and the discreet phones and docking stations are in keeping with the sleek aesthetic. The bathrooms have large showerheads and luxe Hermès accessories.
The mirror-lined lobby, with its large pod armchairs, is light and welcoming and leads through to the spacious breakfast room, where large windows overlook the busy Rue de Clichy. Breakfast is a generous buffet that combines continental and cooked options. The fitness room, hammam and sauna (extra charges may apply) are housed in a stone-walled basement with an arched ceiling.
In the Area
The property is a heartbeat from the Casino de Paris, so it would be churlish not to visit one of Paris’s oldest music halls. There’s nary a roulette wheel in sight, but there are some great live performances on a stage where such legends as Maurice Chevalier and Serge Gainsbourg once stood. And if you’re looking for cabaret, don’t forget the legendary Moulin Rouge, which is just up the road. Or you can head down to the Folies Bergère; established in 1869, it’s 20 years older than the Moulin Rouge. Take advantage of the hotel’s proximity to the Grands Magasins, Paris’s sumptuous department stores, including Galeries Lafayette and Printemps.
How to Get There
The staff are excellent. Our room - I think 'Classic' - was compact but quite cleverly furnished. The fact is that Parisian hotel rooms are generally pretty small unless you go to a much higher price bracket - this was about Eu200 per night with an additional Eu18 pp for a pretty good breakfast. As another reviewer mentioned we really liked the bed. Liege metro is close, Place de Clichy a little further but more of a hub. Close to the Montmartre cemetery which is worth a visit. There are one or two good restaurants close by, in particular L'ascension we thought brilliant. Very pleased the reception told me of the shared minicab service to Charles de Gaulle, I don't know if this is also available going from the airport - though the traffic can be horrendous. We used bus to Etoile and then metro but the distance from the bus drop-off to our metro line was too much even with light luggage. Not recommended, a taxi for the final leg would have been much better on that route. But back to the hotel - well run, friendly and helpful staff, compact but perfectly comfortable room.
We booked this hotel for a one night stay since we were leaving from Saint-Lazare station the early next morning. We were looking for just a quick night's stay, but this hotel was amazing and exceeded our expectations. It was very well maintained and clean while still having a boutique-hotel feel.
- clean rooms in a prime location
- all the hotel staff we interacted with were nice and professional
- the hotel had tea time with amazing food and wine
- the room was small, but I guess that's expected of paris hotel
I love this hotel! The moment we walked in we were greeted with a smile and felt welcomed. The gentleman at the front desk took time out to walk us through our stay and amenities at the hotel. Since we were early, (and our room wasn’t ready yet) he took out a map of the city and quickly began circling and pointing out significant sights we needed to see. He had great recommendations! The hotel is quaint and pretty centrally located to most of the attractions. It’s a short walk to the Basilica of the Sacred Heart which has the most incredible views of the city. Buy some sweets ???? and sit on the steps of the Basilica and enjoy and view!
We were given the executive suite which was so nice and spacious. Since my boyfriend is 7ft tall we really appreciated the additional space. We had a small private patio and enjoyed the breakfast that accompanied our room selection. (BTW, the breakfast is awesome! Try the croissants ????) We loved our stay and cannot wait to plan our next trip! Thank you Hotel R for a fab vacay ????
