The hotel was just fantastic. My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon 6/6-6/11 2004. I agree with other reviews ... the location is great the service very friendly ( ask for Danielle ). My recommondations from our experience are the following... 1) ask for a room on the 4/5/6th floor overlooking the city. 2) Do not try to take the metro from CDG airport ... if you have lots of luggage simply take an airport shuttle... 3) There is a nice self serve laundry facility just about 1.5 blocks west and just over the bridge towards Paris some economical small grocery stores. 4) Don't eat at the restaurant on the roof ... food was not that good and very $$$$. The best way by bus into Paris is the 80 and it stops just outside the hotel. The fastest way to get anywhere else is the Metro at the Abbyyss station. Will stay here again everytime we are in Paris. One other recommondation... we took the train to Normandy right after the D Day celebration ( about 2 hours and 20 mins to Bayeux ) and were not disappointed. If you have an extra day .. do it.
Hope this helps.
My husband and I stayed here from 15/5/04 to 19/05/04 for our seventh wedding anniversary / second honeymoon. Either myself or the booking company had mistakenly booked a twin rather than double room; this was immediately changed to a suite by the hotel at no extra charge and with utter politeness and helpfulness. It was fantastic to open the window and see the Eiffel tower and despite our room being on the corner of the street, it was quiet. Our room was modern and gorgeous and very clean. Great bathroom with very scary power showers! All staff were very friendly and the buffet breakfast was very tasty indeed. Location couldnt be beaten - literally two mins from the Blanche metro station and lots of little bistros and restaurants near by with the Moulin Rouge just literally a stroll away. Would definately return.
Wonderful stay at the Terrass
I took my girlfriend to Paris to propose and stayed at the Terrass after reading the reviews here and we were not dissapointed.
Our room was nicely decorated with silk wallpapers etc.. and a nice bathroom. It was fairly modern in style with a few period pieces of furniture but the thing that really made it was the view. We had room 508 which had a set of french doors opening onto a small (not big enough to sit on) balcony which gave fantastic views over Paris and the Eiffel Tower which was just perfect, especially at night.
We loved the location. It is in the heart of the "village" of montmartre with all it's bakeries and lovely little shops, with the Sacre Coeur only 5 minutes walk up the hill behind.
There are two metro stations within 2-5 mins walk (whic we thought was just right to buy supplies for the day out on the way) and it's just 5-10mins on the metro to the heart of Paris.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and really really enjoyed our stay, although I have to say that the view really made the difference. Without the view I would have to say that the hotel would average for it's star rating especially if you wanted Parisien charm in abundance, which the Terrass offers in small touches rather than luxurious overkill.
We will definately stay there agin (in a room with a view) as we loved Montmartre and the hotel.
Very Good Value, But Don't Expect Luxury
I will preface my remarks by acknowledging that this was the one "value" hotel I chose during our 2-week honeymoon in France. The Terrass was nice enough for Paris standards, and our 2-room suite was certainly large enough to make us comfortable. The furniture was average--the sort you'd expect in a Holiday Inn--and on the whole, the hotel was roughly equivalent to most hotels in that chain. The "king" bed was 2 twins pushed together with a set of slightly scratchy king sheets on top, and since the beds were a little unequal in height, it made for something less than a perfect night's sleep. When I booked the room online, it confirmed my reservation for one of the 2 suites with the balcony and chairs, but when I called the week before to confirm and ask if my request for Room 802 was going to be met, I was informed that both of those suites had already been booked and my reservation for one could not be honored. They did offer me a lesser suite with an Eiffel Tower view but no balcony at a reduced price as consolation. After considering my options, I decided to go ahead and stick with the Terrass, as they seemed genuinely sorry and interested in hosting us. The staff was nice enough, and the view was good, though not as impressive as that of the suites I had wanted. The location was perfect if you like Montmartre, but otherwise somewhat inconvenient, as the nearest Metro was several blocks away in any direction, and the hilly nature of the area made for some steep climbs. All in all, I would recommend the hotel as a good value, and someplace to consider if you want a relatively nice, quiet hotel in an interesting neighborhood, but you're not on a Ritz budget. I would visit it again, but I would probably prefer something a little more upscale and closer to the center of the city, or better yet, in the French countryside.
This was our first time in Paris and we had read all these wonderful things about the Terrass Hotel. So we decided to reserve a room on the Internet for $226 Euros per night. It was very important to us that we had a nice view. We checked in and when I got to my room the view was looking out at a wall so I went back to the reception desk and asked if I could have a suite with a view. They gave me two room keys to view 2 suites they had available. The suite I picked was breathtaking and it cost approximately 300 Euros per night. But was it ever worth it. I had a view of the Eiffel Tower and at night it was breathtaking all lit up.
I also could see the Notre Dame. The room was wonderful with our own private deck with a table and two chairs plus beautiful camelias blooming. If you want a very special and romantic stay ask for Room 802. It will be one of the best rooms you will ever stay in and an experience you will never forget. Kudos for the reception desk. They were one of the most helpful group of individuals I have ever encountered in my travels.
Wonderful hotel very special
Terrass Hotel was all we hoped for abeautiful room with a veiw,superb food and wonderful freindle staff.
Great Hotel and Wonderful Section of Paris
We loved the hotel and the location. We stayed 3 of our 9 nights in Paris here...wished we'd stayed here the entire time. The room was great - perfect view of the Eiffel Tower and Montmarte was a wonderful area. Nice shopping, wonderful artist colony at the top of the butte.
Great cafes and bistros all around. Dinner at the wine bar across the street - La Petite Syrah - was fantastic (although smokey!) Easy metro access - no problem getting anywhere in Paris from this point. We will stay here again.
Paris at it's best!
The best view in town! The Staff was wonderful and the room was amazing! It was the only time I've been to Paris and not felt like i was sleeping in a closet! Hands down the best hotel for the best price in Paris!
Excellent Hotel witha Great View in a Charming Neighborhood
I stayed at the Terass last November. I booked early enough to get a
high room with a view of the Eiffel Tower. The room was charming large
for Paris Standards (or so I am told) and nicely furnished.
The Hotel is situated in a charming neighborhood close to many fine bistros and shops. The Rate included breakfast which was superb. The Concierge was helpful showing a beginner such as myself how to get around the city.
Wow! One of the best values in Paris
We spent 11 days in Paris on our honeymoon and the Terrass hotel was the 3rd of the four hotels we booked. The best hotel in Montmartre!
Walking distance to the Place du Tertre, Sacre Coeur and the Moulin Rouge. The service was first rate and the room was fantastic. A whirlpool tub big enough for two, double sinks, a very large room and two windows with a view of the Eiffel Tower. The restaurant in the Hotel is first rate as is the lobby bar. We just loved this hotel and would highly recommend it to the vacationing traveler.

... seats. Seats! I wanted to hire a golf buggy but Jen thought that was lazy. After the gardens we went out the garden exit only to realise the exit we went out was not a real exit but someone decided to have a smoke and left it open and it was now closed. Luckily it was late and the line for the palace was short and we slipped right through, even though a big beeeep and red light came on when she scanned our tickets. The palace was pretty incredible, every room a priceless work ...
... sits on a hill overlooking Paris and offers a great view of the city at night. We made our way back down the hill and took Paris' metro (which is the worst smelling Metro I have ever been on) to the Arc de Triomph. This magnificent arch was commissioned in 1806 by Napoleon Bonaparte to commemorate his triumphs in battle. It would not be completed, however, until the 1830's, long after Napoleon's reign over France. Today, it stands as a memorial to all the French soldiers lost in battle, ...
So for our second day in Paris we had 3 very big destinations to take in. FIrst, we ventured to Notre Dame Cathedral for mass. It was the most immaculate church we've ever seen. It's 850 years old, so taking in the history and atmosphere was especially mind-blowing. Fatima lit candles for everyone, so if you get a blessing soon, it's because of her :)
Our next trip was to the historic Louvre ...
... interacting with them in their natural habitat. Eavesdropping on their conversations to try to improve my French. Marvelling at their elegant dressing. Observing their polite soft-spokenness and restrained demeanor. Seeing how they avert their eyes if you accidentally make eye contact. Conversing with them. Observing the variety of ethnicities you see. The ethic French people themselves are quite a “melange” of races given the historical influences from the south, ...
... the collection amassed by Guilome, who wanted to open a modern art museum, but died before he could do so. We still owed Evan his macarons, so we walked over to the Galeries Lafayette, which is the Parisian version of Harod's. We thought we had gone to the Galeries Lafayette last week (after the movie), but it must have been an outpost because this one took up two city blocks and was much more impressive. Luckily, we ran in to the Pierre Herme stand right away ...
