... of these Post-impressionist artists could be considered avant-garde, and even obscene. Faces that were intentionally misshapen, portraits that weren't really likenesses of the physical appearance of the person, but the artist's interpretation of them. It was so groundbreaking at the time, I'm not sure that if I had been around at that time and been painted by Picasso that I wouldn't see it and say "Ummm...thanks...this will go in my cellar for 'safekeeping'", then go to my husband ...
... at least the courage - to take advantage of a random fashion opportunity. I cut my hair short at the end of the school year in anticipation of my travels. And here I was on the streets of Paris so why not stop to get a haircut! The hair dresser I chose was given full artistic license - maybe a risky idea since she barely spoke English! The outcome was better than I could ever had hoped for! I was thrilled to continue my travels with my new, ...

Neither hair or umbrella survived. The bus eventually took us to the 850 year old Notre Dame Cathedral, a place that Laura desperately wanted to see. Although there was quite a long line, it moved very quickly, so we only had to wait around 10 minutes. We were awed by the outside of Notre Dame, but ...

Despite the cold wind, the cruise was beautiful and the city was wonderful to see from the water!

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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
