“Good end for a short break in a great neighbourhood”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

This little hotel is a good find. We stayed there 3 nights. Our room was small but in Paris this is standard. It was clean and all amenities were enough for a short break at such a cheap price. We went as part of a Eurostar deal therefore it was very affordable.

The hotel is based in Pigalle, near the Moulin Rouge, Sacre Coeur and loads of lovely restaurants, patisseries and brasseries. There is no point in paying €9 each to have breakfast in the hotel because there's so many great places to eat!

The hotel has Wi-Fi at €2 for 24hrs per device which isn't bad. We were also allowed to leave our suitcases at the hotel when we checked out in the morning because we had a late train back to London. The concierge is 24hrs so there's always someone there. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone on a budget wanting a short escape to a great EU city with where you can indulge and splurge on fantastic food and enjoy the sites!

Hotel is in a very nice neighborhood of Paris with lots of small shops, bakeries, patisseries, cafes, bistros, even a good Chinese restaurant/take away. There's even a well rated bistro right outside - Le Pantruche. Around the corner is a small plaza/square with benches to sit on. The metro station (Pigalle) is less than 5 mins walk, Sacre Cour basilica is about 10 mins, Gare du Nord station about 15-20 mins. Out on the main street there are more shops and fast food (McDo if you like them), a small supermarket (Carrefour) and a big music shop spanning almost a whole block. Actually on Rue Victor Masse, there are a lot of small music shops as well (we're interested because our family are music lovers).
As for the hotel itself, the rooms are small - as expected in Paris- but clean. Towels replaced everyday, beds are nice and comfy, had a TV, phone, no tea kettle, and no air conditioning. Me and my daughter stayed at end of July/beginning of Aug where the Paris temp climbed to 38C! Good thing our room was at the back so we opened our floor to ceiling windows every night. I could imagine for the rooms facing the front would have problems with the street traffic with open windows. As much as possible avoid the rooms beside the stairwell due to the thin walls you can hear everyone going up and down - for the 1st floor that's room 101. Wifi is 2 Euros per day and computers are available at the lobby for 3 Euros throughout your stay (beware the keyboard is not qwerty so you'll have to hunt down the punctuations - LOL!). We didn't use their restaurant for breakfast since there are lots of bakeries around. Their lift is so cute - it can only take 2 people at most.
Overall, this is good value for money. I would go back to this hotel but not in the summer. The big draw for us would be the 'French' feel of the neighborhood - really really nice.

Room Tip: During summer, ask for rooms at the back so you can open your windows and not suffer much noise. Als...

Myself and my family stayed 4 nights in the hotel in July 2013. The hotel was clean, had friendly and helpful staff and was in a great location.We had a breakfast at the hotel for 9 euros which was fine but there wasnt enough variety to have eaten there every morning.
The only faults we could find was that there was no air conditioning, making it extremely hot at night so we would return to the hotel but not in the hight of summer. However, as we quickly realised, this was typical for almost everywhere in Paris, even the shops!
My mum, dad and brother had a room at the front, which was a nicer room than mine and my husbands at the back as it had a balcony and was more spacious. However, although our room was basic and the bathroom was quite awkward to get around as it was small, we were able to have the windows open at night, whereas my family couldnt due to the noise from down the road and motorbikes driving past throughout the night. This obviously isnt a fault of the hotel-we were in the middle of a city but it would annoy some people.
In a nutshell, if you are after somewhere clean to lay your head at night in a nice location, i would reccommend this hotel. If you are somebody wanting luxury, air conditioning and to be on a quiet street, maybe you should look elsewhere, where you will obviosly be paying a lot more.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms at the back but you may be overlooked from the apartments behind

This Hotel is clean but basic. You mist ask for a room facing the courtyard in the warm months or you will have much street noise because you need to keep your windows open to keep cool. The towels are threadbare. The breakfast is good. But it is the neighbourhood that makes this hotel so fabulous. Rue Des Martyrs is steps away and here you feel like your are in a real French neighbourhood. Cute shops line the street and the cafes are packed with locals. Walk up the street and you can get to Montmartre by foot, a steady climb, or down and you can leisurely meander your way all the way to the Louvre.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back, if you don't like tiny tiny elevators you may want a room on a lower...

We have just spent 4 days at the Grand Hotel De Turin, here are my thoughts... The service was fine, everybody was as attentive to our needs as they could be, all staff were polite and helpful. The room was basic, I would go so far as to say very basic but you have to bear in mind that this is a very old building (mid 19th Century) and rooms have been converted to provide for en suite bathrooms to be added, this makes for a lack of space. Saying this we had no complaints about the cleanliness of the room, sheets and towels were changed daily. The location was perfect for our needs, a 5 minute walk to Pigalle metro station and buses just around the corner which will take you all around Paris. The biggest downside as far we were concerned was that we were there during the heatwave in July and as the hotel has no air conditioning we had no choice but to leave the windows open at night. I won't beat about the bush, the noise from outside was phenomenal, from the small crowd of youths who gathered around the nearby benches every night to the unmuffled motor bikes that sped up and down the road, 24 hours a day...we had to wear earplugs otherwise sleep would have been completely impossible. This is partly due to the fact that the road is narrow and the buildings on both sides were very high making all sounds naturally amplified. In summing up, as many people have already mentioned, earplugs should be the first thing you pack. The hotel itself would benefit from a bar and air conditioning might be a nice idea. The only other thing we noticed was the lack of tea making facilities in the room but as there are coffee, tea, soft drink and beer vending machines in reception this was not a massive inconvenience. As a base for sightseeing this hotel was basic but we'll situated.

Very small, cramped bedroom and bathroom; 4 beds squeezed into an area big enough for one double. No towels, facilities etc, in our room on arrival, and staff were rude and dismissive when we politely asked for them! On our final morning Chambermaid let herself into our room two hours before check out and tried to make us to leave! ...In summary, the standards and customer service in this hotel are poor, I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Higher floors are less noisy

When we checked in, the manager greeted us, got out a map of Paris, and drew the two most important bus lines out for us and explained how to get to the major tourist spots. This really, really helped us. The beds were softer than any others we've had in Europe, and the bathroom was very clean and attached to the room. The major bus lines to tourist attractions and the metro station Pigalle are very close, as well as an organic grocery store next to them. Paris is expensive overall, but this was a good deal.
