We stayed as a group of 4 ladies for 2 nights as a means to go to the Moulin Rouge. What a great location the hotel is, just 100m or so from metro station and Moulin Rouge.
The staff were all really helpful and friendly. Our rooms were small but more than ample and what you would expect for a city hotel, very clean and the breakfast was great. Lovely cosy cave like dining area with cooked options, usual continental and lots of scrummy pastries.
The happy culture chain is great, we did wine and cheese tasting at another happy culture hotel and this was all included in the service, great concept.
Would definitely recommend this hotel.

A boutique hotel with plenty of personality we loved it. Situated a few minutes from the Moulin Rouge this Josephine Baker themed hotel is truly delightful. Happy Culture have around 20 hotels in Paris and whilst you are out and about you are welcome to pop in to any to use the facilities, grab a free coffee, have a cookie, charge phones, use wifi etc. Every night happy hour is between 6 pm & 8 pm and you are invited for complimentary drinks; each hotel offers something different. Josephine an absinthe cocktail, we also went next door to the Kipling for wine tasting and to Sacha for champagne. Rooms were small but perfect for a few nights. Breakfast was included, scrambled eggs, sausages, cold meats, pastries, fruit, yoghurts etc. The team at all of the hotels made us feel extremely welcome and live up to the name happy culture ... they really made a difference to our stay. All in all a fantastic experience.

We chose Josephine because it is near the Moulin Rouge. We were not disappointed. It is quite delightful. I can't speak more highly of the staff - very friendly and helpful. The hotel is modest in size but has so many quirky facilities which give it great character. We had a well equipped room on the top floor. Comfortable generous size bed with spotless white sheets. This hotel must surely go on my list of hotels we would like to return to. Excellent breakfast in the cellar. This is an interesting location just off the naughty Pigalle area - vibrant and colourful.

Stayed for 2 nights, can't rate the staff highly enough, they were amazing! Nothing was too much trouble. Perfectly located 2 mins from Moulin Rouge and Blanche metro station so easy to get anywhere. Just down the hill from the Sacre Coeur so hundreds of restaurants and cafes around to choose from. Breakfast was reasonably priced and had a great selection. The room was small but ok for Paris but it was noisy as it was an adjoining room so the very loud people next door weren't ideal but I managed to get some sleep. Overall I just loved it and would highly recommend to anyone.

Thank you for much for taking the time to write and for highly recommending our staff and the hotel! Our staff will always be delighted in telling you all you need and helping you plan your outings!
The hotel is very well situated and we are really glad for this since it is very helpful for customers to get around and visit Paris, as you say, south of Montmartre, but also down from Rue Blanche you are in the very heart of Paris. Thank you also for recommending our breakfast!
Let us know when you plan to come again, so you never miss out on our promotional rates.

We had a really pleasant stay at Hotel Joséphine. The personnel are friendly and happy to help you. The rooms were very clean and we loved the theme. Breakfast had everything you'd want. Not too much but surely not too little :) I'd recommend this hotel to everyone. Also a plus: literally a street away from Moulin Rouge. Merci!
