Le Grand Pigalle Hotel  I got upgraded to the biggest suite! The bed was so comfortable, I was reluctant to falling asleep just to snuggle in the incredible bed linen and duvet.

Le Grand Pigalle Hotel o much YES in this picture. The telephone (that you can buy and take with you btw), the leather key tassel, the house mixed cocktails with hand written labels (double yes) and the leopard rug??? I need to lay down on that bed again.

Le Grand Pigalle Hotel Simple yet tasteful. The toiletries have been custom designed for GPH. Finally something else than C.O. Bigelow, am I right?? Oh and the old school scales, didn’t get on them. That’s just depressing.

Le Grand Pigalle Hotel The bar that will only close when the last guest leaves. The chaps behind it are good fun too.

Le Grand Pigalle Hotel The breakfast buffet is solid. House made granola and jam, I’m a big fan (sorry). Gluten free bread from Chambelland Bakery is spectacular.

Le Grand Pigalle Hotel Every corner is pleasing to the eye in this place. Raw stone walls vs. hand painted floors and tiles. I mean common..

Highs & Lows

  • The design in impeccable. Every detail is thought of. Even the toiletries are custom made in gorgeous bottles, bars of soap with GPH bellboy logo. I am head over heels with this place.

  • Intimate hotel with very friendly and kind staff. I got the biggest room and felt so well taken care of.

  • As the hotel is opened by the guys behind Experimental Cocktail Club, the Wine and Dine bar serves some of the best cocktails in town. It also closes when the last costumer leaves. I’ve sat there until 3 am once. Oops. I guess that’s why they have house mixed cocktails in the minibar. Oh joy!!

  • The breakfast buffet is small and every item is locally sourced and delicious. I am a fan of small buffets as with too much choice I carnally eat like a pig.

  • There are no lows. This is my favourite hotel in Paris.
