Open in a classically Parisian building, at the corner of rues Victor-Massé and Henry Monnier, the 37 rooms of the Grand Pigalle Hotel embody the revival of this historic neighbourhood.
Charming rooms under the eaves of the top floor, balconies eying the tree-lined passages of the avenue Frochot, original mouldings, fireplaces, aged and textured wallpaper, brass lamps and handles, bathroom tiles…all of this revives the eternal bohemian spirit of this artist-adored Parisian neighbourhood. The octagonal design, symbolic even of the form of the South Pigalle quartier, is a leitmotif of décor: custom-made mahogany desks, drawer handles and doorknobs, window frames, wallpaper details, etc.
In the corridors, the entertaining thick “martini” carpet designed by the designer Dorothée Meilichzon leads the way to the golden pineapples affixed to the doors, which then open into a room replete with cocktail “minibars” and rolling carts.
The Grand Pigalle Hotel is an open book for cultivated travellers, those who know that the elegance of a sojourn is as much about respect for a cosmopolitan savoir-vivre as it is for the discovery of strong local cultures. For such travellers this is the right place, as the culture of Pigalle is unique to the world.
