Historical Traveler Reviews Le Relais Montmartre Paris
Wonderful, quiet and intimate hotel.
This hotel is absolutely perfect for a long or short stay in Paris. We stayed for 5 nights from 26/11/2006 and I have not got a bad word to say about the hotel. It is placed perfectly for exploring Paris. The Montmartre area is beautiful. Sit on the steps of the Sacre Couer and watch the sun set over the city. Eat at the Moulin de la galette, not cheap but for a special occasion it's worth it. We will definately use this hotel again.
Montmartre is my favorite area of Paris and Le Relais makes it heavenly! What a fabulous little hotel, tucked on a quiet street off the Rue Lepic. My friend and I had a superior double on the top floor and it was immaculate. A giant room by Parisian standards with a large bathroom and separate toilet area. Comfortable beds and quiet! Exposed beams and slanted ceilings only added to the charm of the room. 3 Metro stops are near-by, so you are linked to the major sites within the City. The hotel offers a 12-Euro/person breakfast, but we opted for a cafe creme and local pastry to go. Save those Euros for fabulous bistros and chocolate!
I wouldn't worry about the neighborhood; it's local and colorful. Check out the cheese shop and charcuterie near-by. We didn't have any qualms walking about at night--2 American women! And rent "Amalie" before you visit...
I recommend walking up to 83, Rue Lepic and dining at Le Moulin de la Galette (located beneath the windmill). Tasty cuisine and ambiance.
I'm already planning my return visit and staying at Le Relais...
Great hotel, great location
Perfect location (just a block from the Moulin Rouge and a Metro stop), great, great customer service. They just couldn't have been nicer. The neighborhood looked a little dodgy upon arrival (my husband actually said 'what have you gotten us into?'), but the hotel itself is close to perfect. The room was a little small, and the water temp a little unpredictable, but still - those are very minor considerations. I would definitely stay there again.
This is a lovely, bright and friendly small hotel which is remarkably quiet for it's central location. Whilst our son is studying in Paris we have the ideal excuse to return and enjoy this hotel again!
Fantastic Boutique Hotel
This was a great small hotel, with excellent service. While it is not a top of the line (as in luxury) hotel, it was very comfortable. The room was small, but comfortably furnished, nicely decorated, and had all of the needed amenities. The bathroom was large, modern, and very clean.
The hotel service was very accomodating. They allowed me to check in early. And when I needed coffee the following morning (before the normal breakfast service), they accomodated. The staff really aims to make your stay comfortable and easy.
It is a good location, in Montmartre, and just next to Rue Lepic (for the food lovers). It is also a relatively short ride to Roissy airport as it is on the north side of the city. The staff is fluent in English. And they have a computer in the reception area for the use of their guests, so you don't have to bring your laptop. In case you do want to use your laptop, there is internet access from your room as well.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to someone (and I am very particular) and I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Charming and Efficient as well
When you book a side-street relais in Paris you assume it will be charming but you hold your breath about air conditioning, sound-proofing, hot water, internet, closet space, the condition of the bed, etc. Well, this hotel is both charming and highly efficient as well, due to a complete top-to-bottom renovation last year. My room was quite nice, the staff very accomodating, breakfast very generous and tasty, and the elevator was modern and just fine!! It's a "transitional" neighborhood - there is a very charming street one block away that feels like a lovely small town; one block the other way is Moulin Rouge and les sex shops - but if you want to stay in Montmartre you can't do better than this welcoming little relais.
Great Hotel, unfortunate accident
My husband and I started our 4 week vacation in beautiful Paris. We booked at the Relais through Expedia for 6 nights. On the 2nd day there, I decided to take the stairs instead of the extremely tiny elevators. Most of the stairs were carpeted except for the last floor (ground level). Once I stepped on the wooden stairs, I slipped and fell really hard. I slid all the way down, tumbling and turning because of the curved stairs. At the very last step, I hit my face and head face-forward. I was black and blue almost all sides, especially on my chin. The staff did not come right away, when they finally did, the main receptionist was dumbfounded and didn´t even know what to do. I yelled for some ice while I craddled my aching head. There was no sense of urgency from the staff. No one from management checked up on me. No apologies from them at all, just excuses. I advised them to put up a sign to say that those stairs are extremely slippery and uneven. These are their emergency exit...to me, it would be SAFER to take my risk with the elevators. Needless to say, we have no pictures of my injured face (and teeth) for our whole stay in romantic Paris. If there is only one thing wrong with this hotel is the uncaring staff. For this reason alone, no matter how nice the hotel was, I will never come back. The terror of falling down those stairs is nightmare enough for me.
Charming hotel in a great location
Conveniently located within a three minute walk from Blanche Metro station and a 10 minute walk up the hill to Sacre Coeur, this boutique hotel is nestled off the pleasantly bustling street of Rue Lepic, which is filled with street cafes and shops filled with tempting goodies. A couple of minutes walk either way will either find you a pretty good restaurant or two or a great night out at the Moulin Rouge.
The hotel rooms are immaculate and very tastefully decorated. The staff are very nice and extremely helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
Luxury Boutique Gem at Bargain Rates!!!!
My fiance and I are both very seasoned travelers. We have recently stayed at the Crillon and at the Royal Monceau, and at various smaller Left Bank hotels in our misspent youth :-). We wanted to try something in Montmartre this time around. We found this little 26-room gem of a hotel through Tripadvisor and once again, this site does not lie! For 152 Euro/nite, we got a superior room with a queen bed. The hotel is very conveniently located in lower Montmartre, around the corner from Les Abbesses and Rue Lepic, which are the main drags of this fabulous part of Paris. The interior has been totally renovated and everything is up to top class snuff. The decor is traditional Parisian 19th century, with drapes, swags and repro period chairs in pastel fabrics. The reception area is warm and very welcoming. Staff is incredibly solicitous and charming, always ready to assist with anything, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. Our superior room was located on the second floor. Room size was average for a Parisian boutique hotel, with a very nice bathroom and separate toilet (nice touch). There was a desk, two chairs, two armchairs, several side tables, a minibar and a small, wallmounted flatscreen TV. Wi-fi and cable were available. We had "French" windows toward a nice courtyard and toward private residences. Climate control was perfect, lighting was recessed and very well planned. The room itself was decorated in soothing tones of Celadon Green, with the woodbeams in the ceiling painted in Delft Blue. There were small 18th century priints on the walls and the decor, while not flashy, suggested a discreet elegance which was unexpected at the price we paid.
The 12 Euro breakfast was delivered to our room within 15 minutes of calling the reception. Two styles, Continental and Vitalite were available. We chose the latter, which was very generous with small servings of fruit, cereal, plain yogurt, breads, preserves, coffee or tea.
The hotel itself is very quiet and we never heard or saw many people. We loved it and would stay there again, even if we had other areas than Montmartre to explore in Paris. For the Right Bank, this is an amazing deal and I'm almost sorry to post this review, as the hotel will surely be more difficult to book in the near future.
Charming French Boutique hotel in Montmartre area
one of my French colleagues recommended this hotel because they live nearby. It is being completely renovated, impeccably clean, lovely French hotel with very high quality linens (400 thread count?). This is such a contrast to all the US chain hotels with scratchy sheets!
Breakfast was delivered to my room each day with fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt and tea. The rate was very good: around 120 Euros per night.
the location is great. you can see the Sacre couer on your way to the hotel from the airport. The area has cobblestone streets and is a great French experience with little shops all around. If you want a spa, pool, conference rooms, or workout facility, then this is not the place for you. It is also very close to the Moulin Rouge and some cool clubs. not all the rooms were completed yet, but the hotel manager showed me all of the rooms that were available and they are all really nice with pretty comforters and curtains.

Travel Blogs from Paris
On our last day in Paris we got up and dressed and had chocolate karate pillows, croissants and yogurt for breakfast. We packed our bags and then went for a walk to the market. On the way it was very hot and daddy bout us an icy poles to eat. In the Marche aux puce we saw lots of little shops selling all sorts of different things. Then we went home for lunch but we stopped at the playground on the way. We had to leave our luggage at Gare de l'Est for the afternoon and put it into ...
... I see once on ground level? The amazingly beautiful Notre Dame Cathedral!!! I just stood there look up with my mouth open not believing what I'm seeing. Again, I'm 2 years old so I can act like one, oui? Luckily I didn't have drool coming from my mouth...this time. Haha I took a few pictures, but knew I needed to get to the hotel and drop off my bags, freshen up, and find food, so I went searching for my hotel. ((Clunk clunk click click clack clack)) ...
... here, and the “attraction” don’t have to be for free… If you’ll go to Paris prepare that you will need a huge amount of time for any visit because of the waiting lines. Shortly back to the Notre-Dame, when you’ll get inside, there is possibility to go to the roof of the cathedral, there must be amazing view all around.
Walking next to the river I’m getting to Louver, all the palace is huge and stunningly ...
... technical difficulties for half an hour, before we needed to change trains altogether. We had no idea what was going on but another passenger kindly translated for us. Another half hour of delay meant that our journey was during twilight instead of late afternoon. The countryside looked very similar to New Zealand, except that there were beautiful a framed houses instead of our flat roof variety, the cows were all white and there were more donkeys. There were also fields ...
... a short 50 meters down a side road and the prices plummeted back to EU $3 for a coffee. As we made our way down the road we noticed an interesting mix of high-end stores and discount shops. Connie thought that the Magnificent Mile in Chicago was a more impressive site as it's really just high-end stores, but I thought that the Champs-Élysées was much more scenic with the trees lining the street and the expensive posh restaurants ...
