“Great Stay!!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Overall this was an awesome stay and very close to Montemarte!!! Also, the metro is right outside the apartment so you can go basically anywhere! I would definitely stay here again!!!! It is a busy street and made you feel like you were part of the city. Room was very clean and the owners were very nice and assisted you in every way possible.

Great experience to enjoy the city like a local. Placed in Montmartre near the Moulin Rouge. Just a few feet from the subway (Blanche) and close to many restaurants, markets, cafés. It was ideal for people who had not been to Paris before. There was a bus stop next to the metro that took you to the Eiffel Tower which was very handy.

The receptionist Florence was very friendly and so helpful! Rooms were nicely decorated and clean. Rooms were so quite even though though the hotel is right beside the moulin rouge! Hotel is very secure. There is a metro station right outside the door too. We are looking forward to staying in residence blanche the next time we are in Paris.

We stayed here over Christmas, the location was excellent with restaraurants and bars right outside your door and within walking distance. We were 2 min walk to Moulin Rouge.

The room was compact, but I get the impression that a lot of places in Paris are the same. the room was clean and tidy, and did have a very small kitchen (bench with hotplate) it also had a fridge and you could cook if you chose to, but being on holliday I had no intention of cooking.

We could not find the bedroom to start with, had a neat little lounge, then we realised the lounge and the sofa was to be our bedroom and bed.
The sofa bed would have to be the most uncomfortable thing I have ever slept on!! I was going to see if we could change rooms, but in the end we just put up with it. I even started waking with a very sore back. On the bright side, we were up a lot earlier than we would have been on holiday, (just to get out of the bed) so we did end up seeing a lot more of Paris than we anticipated.

The Wifi was free but you had to keep logging on every time you had not used it and that really frustrates me. We could not get either of our phones to hook in and so only had the IPad that was connected, I know we should have gone and asked them about it, so really not their fault.

We also asked for some recomendations on places to eat, we were told to try across the road, where we had already been and found very average, plus another place just up the road, which once again we had already tried and although good for a drink was not very good for breakfast. We did find some really neat places ourselves but just thought that there had been no effort put into helping.

Another good thing about the apartment was that it was a very short taxi from the Eurostar and about 8.00 euro.

I would go back if I knew that the bed was not going to be a sofa bed, but in reality there are so many places in Paris and most seem to have restaurants all around them, that I would probably try a different area all together.

Dear Kiwi 904

We are sorry that you had problem with the sofa bed. It is true that we had to repair one beginning of January and we think that it should be this one you had because most people find them very comfortable and it allows you (when they are closed) to have a larger living room.
As for the advice of a restaurant, we must say that it is sometimes difficult to advise exactly what the guests like.
Best regards
RESIDENCE BLANCHE

We had a 1 bedroom apartment, it was very conveniently located - across the street from the metro station of Blanche and along the rue Lepic are lots of places to eat. It was a little hard to sleep on Friday night with the sirens, although it didn't seem to bother the kids -ages 8-13. I was worried about it being in the same building as the Moulin Rouge; however, we didn't go along the main street and stuck to rue Lepic and never once encountered any "ladies". I was nervous about the location, but it all worked out great. There are only 2 people who are available to check you in and they are not there 24/7; so make sure that you will be arriving at a time when you can easily check in. They did provide luggage storage on the final day for us also.

Room Tip: higher up the room the less noise from the street

We stayed in a one bed apartment in Residence Blanche, Montmatre, Paris. Location-wise it is right amongst the action, literally next door to Moulin Rouge and Rue Lepic where "Amelie" was filmed. If you love the movie as I do that was great. You can walk to Sacre Coeur and many lovely places to eat and drink. The Metro is very handy too. My only criticism is the stairs smelled strongly of mildew and you had a one person lift to take your bags up in after lugging them up many stairs to reception. But that is normal for France. It was exactly as I expected it to be and in the most expensive city in the world not badly priced.
