The Grand Pigalle Hotel is located, like the name anticipates, not even a five minutes’ walk to the metro station Pigalle. When entering, there is a stylish and cozy bar/restaurant. The hotel breakfast is also served there. From 11 am on it will open for the public too. In fact, it’s super popular for brunches. I would have loved taking some pictures of the breakfast for you but we arrived only five minutes to 11am. Usually it’s no problem to stay a quarter of an hour longer but apparently all tables were already booked for the Sunday brunch. Hungrily, we had so find something else in Montmartre as the bar wasn’t willing to serve us a quick breakfast.
Grand Pigalle Hotel Our Room
In total the Grand Pigalle has 37 rooms. Our room was nice and had a big cozy bed. The pillows! I’ve never seen so comfortable pillows in a hotel. We had a cute balcony with a great view onto Sacrè-Coeur and to the city centre. However, the room was quite tiny and there was only little space for my suitcase.
Unfortunately, there was a lot of noise at night and in the morning within the hotel and outside. Apparently there was a marathon passing by the hotel and people were shouting encouragement to the runners in the street.

Grand Pigalle Hotel the neigborhood
To be honest, Montmartre is not one of my favorite neighborhoods but still there are a couple of places I love. What I recommend:
- while the front part of Montmartre may be super touristy, take a stroll on the backside. This is also where all those cool super steep stairs are located.
- behind Sacré-Coeur there is a lovely garden
- Café Marlette is a super cute spot for a Sunday brunch
- one of my favorite (but always super busy on weekends) restaurants is Marcel. We always went there around 10-11 o’clock and left our names in case a table wasn’t free. Took a stroll through Montmartre and came back as soon as a place was ready.
- there is the cute square St. Georges, where I’ve passed a lot of times.
what I didn’t like
I’d seen the Grand Pigalle Hotel on a lot of other blogs and I loved the interior. However, my blogger colleagues’ stays had seemed to be great – ours wasn’t. Unfortunately, we didn’t have any luck. Apart from our super loud night, the missed breakfast, also the elevator was not working and we had to carry ourselves our luggage all the way down from the 5th floor.
