“Quirky Hotel in a nice quiet location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

I'd surprised my girlfriend with a weekend to Paris and had chosen this hotel, as it stood out from the usual kind of place to stay in, in a capital city such as Paris. This weekend, and subsequently the hotel we stayed in, was especially important to me as it was to be the weekend i proposed to my girlfriend and i wanted everything to be perfect. It was.

The Moroccan theme around the hotel is very different and in a good way. We enjoyed our stay very much and were made to feel very welcome by the helpful staff, the room was clean and cosy, the view from the top floor was fantastic, located not far from the Metro Station into the centre of Paris, and the only piece of constructive criticism i can give is to suggest that for couples, a double bed is provided instead of two singles put together.

Upon our return to Paris, I would not hesitate to book here again.

This hotel is in the district of Pigalle, close to Montmarte. The room is small but very comfortable! The staff is friendly and helpful. One drawback was that we arrived in Paris around 10am on our flight, and check in wasn't until 2pm. Some hotels will let you check in early but we had to wait until exactly 2pm, so that was an exhausting wait after our long flight. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

It has been a pleasure to have you in our hotel, and we are looking forward to welcome you again in a near future.

Sincerely,

Kamel Dani - Hotel Manager

We enjoyed the stay. The people in the reception was very helpful, both in english and french. The hotel was nice and clean. The shower had excellent water pressure!

The room we got was rather small, and the bathroom feels like its in the same room. The noise from the hallway was loud when the cleaning people did their job. The bed was not too comfy. All this ok for the price we payed.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on the site following your stay with us and it was our great pleasure to take care of you both. Thank you so much for your lovely words about the team which I have passed to one and all.

About the location of the hotel in Paris, we regret that you said " little outside of the center " because we are located at the foot of the historical district of Montmartre.

As it is close to the Metro, guests have direct access to many famous sites such as the Champs-Elysées and Arc de Triomphe (7 minutes), the Louvre museum (15 minutes) and the Opera house (10 minutes), also we are situated at 3 subway stations of the Gare du Nord, the 3rd biggest train station of Europe.

Easy accesses are numerous … We hope that you will realize it during a next stay among us because we will be pleased to welcome you again. In the meantime, we wish you a happy new 2014 year.

Kind regards,

Kamel DANI - Hotel Manager

Good to be back at this charming "Belle epoque" hotel situated right by the Pigalle Metro station. Short distance to Sacré Coeur, Montmatre and many nice restaurants . If you have heavy luggage or travel with small children take a taxi from the airport, if you arrive by air. The connection via train/metro is not too good because you will have to walk with all that luggage up and down stairs in the metro system to get to the Pigalle metro station.
Third time here, and I may come back!

Room Tip: If you want to get a quiet room ask for one that is not facing Pl. Pigalle and Bd. de Clichy.

The hotel is located 40 meters from the Metro . The hotel is small and basic, and not the hotel to stay in, if you plan to stay much in the room.
On the other hand, if you want it just as a base for exploring Paris - it is ideal.
Staff very friendly.
As noted in other reviews - the location sounds queer, but it is perfectly safe and we did not feel uneasy.
There is a McDonalds across the square. For breakfast and light late evening meal we went to the bakery just near it.

Room Tip: we had a room on 4th floor overlooking the square, and had no noise. I suggest asking for one of th...

This is a great little hotel for exploring Paris. The décor is fabulous...very Moulin Rouge. Our room was a good size, with a great view of the Sacré Coeur, and had all the necessary amenities (shame there was no 'do not disturb' sign for the door though, as the chamber maid had a tendency to walk into the room without knocking!). The shower was powerful and there was lots of hot water. The breakfast was good - scrambled eggs, bacon, French stick, pastries, cheese, ham, salami, jams, yoghurts, cereal, fruit etc. However, I would recommend that you take your own teabags...though to be fair the same tea was served elsewhere. It was pleasant just VERY weak and that's from someone who doesn't drink strong tea at home! In short, I would recommend this hotel. We had a lovely stay there and it's right next to the Pigalle metro station. My only advice would be not to venture back to the hotel alone late at night. The hotel is in the red light district (which I hadn't realised until after I made the booking) and there were a few dodgy characters about at night...

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the Sacré Coeur.

The room was amazing, perfectly romantic, we had a fantastic balcony and view of the Sacre Coeur. The only critique was, this was our first stay of this caliber hotel in Paris, and we didn't have a "Do not disturb" sign in our room, which we could have definitely used, since we had room service and stewards knocking on our door twice after about 10am (not so nice for our honeymoon). But otherwise a fantastic stay! Very good service and a fantastic location next to the Pigalle metro station. A little sketchy too late late at night (and expect noise late into the night), it is the red light district after all, but we never felt in danger, and we always bring ear plugs when we travel so the noise wasn't too much of an issue. The in-room continental breakfast was very delicious and the room was thoroughly enjoyable (bathroom was gorgeous)! Overall we would definitely stay again!

The décor takes its inspiration from the world of the theatre. Details are numerous and the rococo style is clearly evident. Deep reds, tassels and tufted velvets are omnipresent, as is the decorative gilding, which even surrounds the plasma TV screens.In the Suites, a fireplace adds to the cosy atmosphere and a whirlpool bath invites guests to let laziness take over.
