“Good location, great staff, small but comfortable rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This hotel is ideally located at the foot of Montmartre, and at merely a 2 minute walk from the Moulin Rouge where you can catch a public transit bus or the touristic hop on/hop off bus. You can also catch a public transit bus toward the Louvre a few feet from the hotel door.The area has many small bistros/restaurants for evening outings. The hotel itself is brand new. You can still smell the paint in the hallways and elevator. Its interior has been tastefully decorated in an Indian colonial style to reflect the theme of the hotel: R. Kipling. The room was very cute and clean, however, a bit small (we had the standard double room) with just enough space to walk around the bed but not more. The bed was awesome for being a hotel bed. More comfortable than my bed at home! The bathroom is tiny but very cute. Despite having a room at the front of the hotel, we never heard much (or even anything) of the traffic or street noise. The windows are very well insulated. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and professional. The breakfast was adequate in the sense that it has a good choice of baked goods, bread, cheese, sliced meat, cereal, fruit, OJ, coffee, hot milk and tea. However, I would not recommend the eggs. I think they may have been powdered eggs. They were way too soft and soggy. And despite being told there was bacon and eggs in the hot tray, in the three days we were there, I never saw any bacon. But the rest of the breakfast was good and adequate, and the breakfast staff was very sweet.
