“Great value for money”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Whenever I visit Paris this is the Hotel I stay in. The hotel has a lovely 60's chique atmosphere. The location is perfect with a metro nearby and Montmartre at walking distance. The rooms are spacious en well equipped. This Hotel will give you good value for money in Paris, because there are quite a few hotels where you will pay a lot more for less. The Hotel also featured in BBC Two's Great Continental Railway Journeys, presented by Michael Portillo. The Hotel is famous for it's absinth.

Situated at the foot of the Butte Montmartre, and in general a good place to start exploring Paris on foot. It's close to two Metro lines, easily accessible by public transport when coming from either CDG or Orly. Well-sized bathrooms (a rarity in Paris), good breakfast, and usually highly accommodating and helpful staff, especially the ladies who take care of breakfast, they made every morning happy and bright.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the top floors with a view of Sacre Coeur, make the most of the proximity.

Clean, centrally located and friendly staff! Top value for the traveller on a budget! It is in the middle of the red light district but plenty of lively and affordable bars close by (a rarity in Paris).

The room was not that great but the staff are friendly and helpful during my stay. The hotel location is very good, a walking distance to Montmartre and Sacre Coeur, Gare du Nord. I even walked to Louvre which was not difficult at all. Moulin Rouge is around the corner, lots of cheap restaurants nearby. The area was a bit turn of for me as a female solo traveler but I felt quite safe. Very close to metro station as well.

This hotel used to be a cabaret and has beautiful decor, plus an absinthe bar and old absinthe spoons on display. Friendly staff, nice basic breakfast with tasty croissants.
It's literally round the corner from the Moulin Rouge...loved it!
We found it to be charming, clean, excellent location for exploring Pigalle, Moulin Rouge, Mon marte, and there is a metro stop 2 minutes away to go into Paris.
Remember that it is in the "entertainment" district so expect lots of "adult" shops near the Moulin Rouge.
Personally I've stayed at bog standard, boring "premier inn" style chain hotels in France and this one was great for us because we like a little personality!!

Trashed facilities, poor hygiene, ridiculously small shower, shady neighbourhood at night and not particularly friendly staff. Wifi worked perfectly, though.

* For reference: I stayed on 1st floor (room 15, if I recall correctly)

* Tip: If you have the misfortune of booking a room on Royal Fromentin, have a nutella crepe at the booth right in front of Blanche station - it was the best that I had on food stands in Paris and will help you feel less bitter about your stay;)

Room Tip: Although the antique elevator is AWESOME, it's very small and slow. I'd recommend staying on...

We stayed 4 nights at the Royal Fromentin. It was a good value for your money. Clean and decent room, with sober but good breakfast.

But if you stay at this hotel, bring your earplugs... the walls are really thin and you can here a lot of sounds out of the rooms next to you.

Room Tip: ask for a non-smoking room if you prefer... we did'nt and got a smokers room
