This place is dangerous and you shouldn’t by any reason go in there. I have experienced it myself and just can advise you to stay away from this place.

Place Pigalle is associated with the area of Montmatre, however this is the "profane" versus the "sacred" of Monmatre. I had a great apartment up the main street from Pigalle, the apartment was nice but try to stay more than two blocks from the main...More

Getting more seedy by the day with a plethora of sex shops and dodgy characters. Back streets around the area still offer some of the best local bars or sit across from the Moulin Rouge in a cafe and people watch on the cheap. For...More

Its reputation is beyond review ... great entertainment value and night life, but the area has been suffering from deculturalization of its history by the presence of a lot of noisy distractions and increased crime at weekends mainly,.

This place is famous for having lots of theaters. This is where folks went to Montmartre for big and little shows with dancers and singers. Some evolved into music halls and then rock venues. Lots of bars and restaurants. Used to be full of prostitutes,...More

Pierrot0202, where exactly is the apartment? I think you will feel safe, just might be uncomfortable if you are walking through boulevard de Clichy at night.

Paris - Montmartre or Le Marais (16 Replies)
Hi travellers, My wife and I are considering the 2 following accommodations. One is near Place Pigalle in Montmartre, in the 18th arrondissement, the 2nd is in Le Marais area in the 3rd arrondissement. We'll be staying for 5 nights. Could someone please comment on the pros and cons of each of these choices. Thanks

For the latter you can walk to many more places than the former. And I think being close to the river (the Marais) is better than being a metro ride away. Pjk

Hi - I was in the Emerald City for a conference last week. I only had an afternoon to explore. What a surprise to find a Paris memory in Seattle - the Place Pigalle restaurant in the Pike Place market! I didn't eat there, but what memories it evoked. I hope to return to Seattle again, definitely more places to explore.

I'm so happy you enjoyed your visit. I was in Paris or otherwise I would have offered to meet you for coffee. I am also sorry you had to experience such awful weather. If the rain does not stop soon we'll need to build an ark around here!
