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
We stayed for one weekend at Pigalle. The rooms are beautifully designed, with an artsy love for details, very comfortable beds and friendly staff.
The location is 50m next to the Pigalle metro station, with lots of bars and a hip nightlife around.
The lobby contains as well a cool cafe to work during the day and in the evening you can enjoy a nice drink. If you go out and enjoy the nightlife it comes in handy that you can enjoy a nice brunch all day long.
I stayed 3 nights; loved the quirky atmosphere, breakfast tasted really good, but there was no consistency about service quality. The staff needs to strike a good balance between being hip and being professional. They mean well, but they need to pay attention to staff allocation, especially during breakfast; reception, kitchen, waitstaff. A few times the orders were wrong and came late. Otherwise, bed was super comfy, the rooms had personality and proximity to the metro and good restaurants was a big plus. Probably will go back :)
Cool hip hotel in the middle of Pigalle, with very friendly staff and good food options (until late).
Pros: Ideally located, great atmosphere, super comfy bed
Cons: Rooms are pretty small (typical for Paris) and the street-facing ones can be noisy at night as there are multiple bars in the street.
Great little hotel in good location, rooms are compact but typical of what you find for similar cost though very comfortable and contemporary. Coffee is excellent along with good food. Would definitely recommend this hotel if looking at staying in this part of city
A real pleasure to give a laud to a hotel, or - rather - the staff. Although we were having extreme difficulties because of the French Customs strike, thy went far beyond what could have been expected to help s, making calls for s, etc.
Wholeheartedly recommend them
