Le Pigalle Hotel is located in the 9th district of Paris, just a 5-minute walk from the Moulin Rouge. All of the 40 rooms have a strong Parisian identity. They are decorated in the style of the area, known as Nouvelle Athènes for its neoclassical architecture, which inspired artists and poets in the late nineteenth century. And they convey a specific image of Pigalle: historic, modern, decadent, multicultural, musical. The rooms are simple and comfortable, full of domestic touches, more like a friend’s bedroom than a cookie-cutter hotel room. Each is a collection of objects, souvenirs, music, books and second-hand furniture, with a personality all of its own.
The groundfloor is a passionate distillation of everything that makes Pigalle such a special place. In a setting that’s both gloriously vintage and utterly contemporary, it embodies the spirit of collaboration that underlies this hotel – it is also a meeting place for the team of artists and designers whose job it is to recreate the essence of the neighbourhood.
It has a café, bar and restaurant, a vinyl record library, and a newspaper and book kiosk, all run by the colourful characters who make Pigalle what it is. There are parties, DJ sets and table dancing, providing guests with a foretaste of what they can expect as they explore the uncharted jungle that is Paris.
Guests can relax in the on-site bar or enjoy a bite to eat in the restaurant with a menu that offers simple and handpicked seasonal dishes that change with the vagaries of nature. They are prepared and served all day, and until late at night. It’s all about assembly rather than cooking, like a kitchen where most of the preparation is done beforehand, often using home-made jams, terrines, pickles and preserves made the summer before.
Pigalle Metro Station is only a 1-minute walk away and offers direct access to the Arc de Triomphe. Sacré-Coeur is 900 yards from Le Pigalle Hotel, while Opéra Garnier is 0.7 miles away. Orly Airport is 10.6 miles from the property.
