3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The room was not good, the floor was creaky, bed had no spring in them and walls were so thin, running water from the room ajar were heard. But we only used it for sleep so it was ok. The price was good though about 80euros a night with breakfast included for two. Breakfast was good, croissants and cereals and tea or coffee. But you could buy yourself some fresh stuffed baguettes instead around the corner of the hotel instead.

I stayed with my boyfriend in a double room. It was very spacious and with a nice view of Montmartre. The breakfast is served in a typical French bar and it is worth the price. All around is plenty of sex shops but the area is not dangerous. It's lively and in 2 min. walking distance from the metro stop Pigalle and another metro stop. Book this hotel for a typical and comfortable stay. The staff is very kind!

If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel in Paris and are okay with the sex shops in the district then by all means choose the Hotel Royal Fromentin. We saw plenty of sex shops but no prostitutes. We were never bothered by anyone or anything. The area is always alive so no worry being out late at night.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in October. Location was good for us. In the Montmartre district, near the Pigalle metro station, around the corner from Moulin Rouge. A Starbucks very close made me happy!

The rooms are small but addequate and comfortable and very clean. My only complaint was the tiny shower. I laughed when I read the review that mentioned your butt getting caught in the shower curtain as I could relate.

We had a room on the second floor which did not give us much of a view but was good in that it was easy to walk up the stairs rather than wait for the elevator. The elevator was one of those old cage type that only 2 people could squeeze into but so cool!

Breakfast was good and they served you the coffee and juice - simple, croissants and buns, cheese, cereal, yogurt and plenty of jams and other spreads.

We enjoyed the authentic Paris experience of the area rather than being in the busy shopping area. It depends what you want but we loved it and would stay here again.

Stayed two nights at Hotel Royal Fromentin. Although the area is dodgy (Pigalle) with sex shops galore just around the corner, the boutique hotel atmosphere, reasonable price, and friendly staff downplay the concern for staying in the "red light" district. Rooms are small yet comforatable, especially the mattress and linens. Shower was impossibly small with a hand held shower head and shower curtain that loved to stick to ones behind. Lol. Breakfast was lovely with fresh croissants, juice, cheese, and coffee/tea, which is included in the cost of the room. Make sure to ask for a floor on the 6th or 7th floor to see views of Sacre Couer. Overall a perfect hotel for a short weekend trip.

This bed & breakfast is fine. I travelled Paris to sightsee & spent all day out and about. I left the B&B early each morning & came back late at night. Therefore, it served its purpose; a place to take a hot shower & get some rest. It was clean, the staff were polite enough and the room had enough room to accommodate me, although the walls are paper thin.The one perk they had & I was most grateful for was the free wifi. It allowed me to keep in touch with family & friends.

While the neighborhood leaves a lot to be desired, at no point did I feel unsafe. It's near the metro & bus, a short walk to tourist attractions, nice restaurants & nightlife. However, on my next trip to Paris I probably wouldn't stay there. Simply because I wouldn't pay hotel prices for B&B quality.
