In the heart of Montmartre, this hipster hotel is one of Paris’s coolest new offerings. The team is made up of local creative types, from booksellers and bakers to architects and artists and the result is a welcoming, design-led space full of books, vintage trinkets and secondhand furniture. The guestrooms range from cozy dorm-style spaces to large, party-worthy suites complete with a bar area. All feature thoughtful extras like an in-room iPad and a high-tech stereo system. The shelves are dotted with vintage objects and arty posters; opt for one with views of the Sacré Coeur for an authentic Parisian experience. Downstairs, the restaurant-bar offers a simple, well-edited menu and a comprehensive (mainly natural) wine list. Book a weekend stay if you want a party atmosphere — there’s a resident DJ and a jukebox in the basement — and spend lazy Sunday morning in the cozy café.
In the Area
The neon-lit neighborhood of Pigalle is famous for its nightlife, and you can find bars, clubs and erotic establishments on every corner. Wander up the narrow cobblestone streets to Montmartre and its basilica, the Sacré Coeur. Check out the portrait artists in the Place du Tertre and quench your thirst at the Lapin Agile, once frequented by Picasso and his painterly brethren. Visit the Musée de Montmartre to learn more about this neighborhood’s revolutionary past and its artistic legacy. There’s a fabulous choice of restaurants if you head away from the main tourist drag; try the cocktails and fusion cuisine at La Famille or the excellent salads at Le Miroir.
How to Get There
This is my second stay in the hotel and I obviously returned because I like the hotel, staff, location etc. I really enjoyed the breakfast last time which was included as I'm a Tablet Plus member and I was looking forward to the delicious avocado and mango salad, cream cheese and herb and fresh eggs. Breakfast is served from 7am but on arriving at about 7.20 we were told that the chef was late and we could only have baguette. This was really disappointing, we had an early train to catch so could not wait for him to arrive. In the end he turned up just before 8am which was no good to us. I would like to stay again when I'm next in town but I'm not sure now as I do enjoy a good breakfast when I've got a day of travelling ahead of me, a chunk of baguette isn't good enough! Still a lovely hotel, nice staff and fab location but this really let it down.
Incredibly-designed boutique hotel that feels like it's your own apartment -- you even get your own keychain! Loved the lobby/bar area, the helpful staff, the neighborhood. Would definitely stay again. The rooms are small, and it can be loud at night, but that's just part of having an apartment in the city ;)
It was a very nice setting, room, neighborhood, ... and the staff was very friendly and helpful, BUT we didn't sleep well, nor felt comfortable in our room.
The second morning we were woken up by renovation workers taping the doorway and our door for redecoration purposes. The third morning they started painting our door at around 9 am. All of this without a heads-up. Cleaning personnel also walked in on us stating firmly stating that we must use a 'do not disturb card' which we did not have in our room. All of that while I was standing there in a towel.
Their AC also did not survive the heatwaves of this summer well. We were woken up every night by the sudden noises it made. The last night it got so bad we were offered to switch rooms at 2 am.
Not worth the price.
