While doing a hotel search I came across this unique 5 room Villa hotel and I was very intrigued, however, I reluctantly booked it because it is in such an odd location.
This beautifully renovated Montmartre Villa feels like a posh private residence - hence the name I guess. Even though it is a hotel, it feels more like you are visiting your rich Parisian aunt if you had one.
I chose the dark burgundy velvet tuffted room, and I loved it. It is very spacious with high ceilings, a king size bed (all to myself) and it is so so so quiet, it was like a remote & peaceful retreat, ideal if you like to sleep in. This room is on the dark side but somehow it felt very soothing. The generous bathroom is great and the steam room was a very nice surprise.
I travel to Paris a lot, and I can honestly say this is the only place where I got the most restful sleep ever. Part of that being that this area of Montmartre is not well traveled by cars and city buses, and part because the HP is situated behind two locked gates in the middle of a peaceful residential enclave.
Paris is a "walking city" and the large steam room was such a treat at the end of a busy long day!! A unique and sweet indulgence. The shower is huge and it can easily fit two people in it ; )
The staff (of 1) was very friendly & professional, even though she was outnumbered by the hotel guests.
One other thing I liked about this hotel is the fact that you can actually book the room you see on the website (if available) and you don't have a surprise when you get there.
I garden is very beautiful and well designed.
It was very dificult to find. I'm glad I was on foot, and not in a cab, as I circled and circled to find the entrance to the couryard.
Hint: bring pictures of the 2 metal gates with you (a reviewer posted them) The first gate is RECESSED from the other buildings outline, that's why is so easy to miss, or hard to find - whichever way you want to look at it. It looks like a driveway.
It would be very helpful if the hotel website had a diagram to help visitors find them easier as this seems to be a common complaint in most reviews.
Another minor minus is the lamps on the night stands. They are very small and flimsy & look too cheap for this room.
I would definitely go back to HP, but next time I would bring someone along. Being a female traveling alone, I did not feel safe walking to the hotel from the Metro station in the late evening hours. . The streets were too deserted for my taste. Day time is perfectly safe however, as there are many people walking around. The metro station was surprisingly seedy for such a nice neighborhood.
I would recommend this for a romantic getaway FOR SURE....If you think you might bump into the other 4 guests, you will not. The size of this mansion is very generous and each room has a lot of privacy. But I would not suggest this for a business traveler or women traveling alone.
