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
I had a wonderful time in Paris and a lot of it had to do with the hotel that I chose to stay in, Le Pigalle. Not only is the metro directly on the corner making all of your sightseeing/ dinner trips incredibly easy but the staff was so delightful and fun. Needless to say they made me feel right at home. My room came with a record player as well as a selection of vinyl records, which was really cool but on top of that the iPad in my room had a curated playlist of music as well and both selections were top notch. It’s a vibe. But once again I have to say the staff was amazing. Every one was extremely helpful and seemed like they cared about making your experience the best it could be. I appreciated that greatly and will be booking here again on my next trip to Paris.
Great theme that fits the location very well and translates consistently throughout, from interiors to amenities, something I'd expect from a Design Hotel. However, when they market a room as "looking more like a home than a hotel", I would still expect hotel-standard cleanliness. Found hair strands on the bed and bathroom floor, and the bathroom tiles need bleaching. You can tell that they tried, but needs more attention to detail. Photos speak for themselves.
Recently stayed at Le Pigalle for the 3rd time, continues to charm, great, cozy rooms, central to where i need to be and service vibe are Parisian artsy, relaxed and chill. Love the common space where i worked and took in the ambiance. Was like my favorite pair of jeans.
