Le Romantic Parisienne Mornings: Grand Pigalle Hotel

To my dearest:

When you think Paris, what comes to mind? For me, it’s relaxing mornings where you can smell the freshly baked croissants that just came out of the oven and fresh brewed aroma of coffee. Have it on those traditional romantic balconies – where you just do some reading. Ah it’s just so dreamy! I had to make it a reality and experience it for myself when I was in Paris! And I was able to – thanks to Grand Pigalle Hotel.

This is in no way, sponsored by Grand Pigalle. I did some extensive research prior to visiting Paris to find the perfect boutique hotel for the best experience possible. And Grand Pigalle became my first choice!

Grand Pigalle is a small boutique hotel located in the heart of Pigalle in Paris. It’s small, but mighty. I loved the vintage romantic vibes through out the hotel! The staff were very helpful and welcoming upon check-in and that’s how I knew my stay here was going to be wonderful. After all, everything about a hotel boils down to hospitality!

What more – is that the bed was comfortable. To wake up in Paris with roses, champagne and my favorite designer goodies? Ugh. What a dream. I definitely woke up on the right side of the bed! But truth be told, it was a comfortable bed. I tend to toss and turn a lot and wake up several times when I sleep on hotel beds. But not with this one. I’d say, the bed was medium-hard. Which, was probably more suited for my back and sleeping habits.

Actually, this photo was taken straight from my iPhone. No shame. Because, why? It was too good to resist and I failed to take more photos after I posted to my insta-stories. So this is all that I could provide. But hey, better than nothing right? I loved that they had a very hearty and healthy breakfast to help jump start my morning! I woke up here on my last day in Paris, before catching my flight back to New York. This breakfast did not disappoint. The fruits, cheese, cured meats, yogurt, and butter was on point! And I loved that they did room delivery for it so I could just enjoy my balcony view while enjoying breakfast! Super relaxing!

The balcony is obviously the highlight of this room. It costs an extra €25 per night. But, I think it’s worth every penny – an experience worth paying for! They have balcony rooms in almost every category! So, you can have a balcony room in any price range. My room was the Pigalle Room, so it was the second tier room. It was still comfortable and spacious enough for two!

And yes, enjoying some fresh strawberry fraises and cake while trying to figure out how to read a newspaper that’s written in French and people watching was my thing. I promise I’m not a creeper. Anyways, yes. This hotel and this room is the perfect opportunity for relaxation, romance, and beautiful photos to take home. All the photos I was able to take here, was basically a souvenir just for me. Well, and for you guys… since I’m sharing it on my blog and instagram right? 😉 Finding beautiful hotels for photos is definitely something I love to do!

The hotel’s decor just has my heart. I can’t even find the words to begin explaining it. From the moment you step into the hotel, the little tiles on the floor – to the vintage tassled room keys you are given. Then, the Alice in Wonderland-esque turquoise blue stairway. Every little element made it count. If you’re into retro-vintage vibes. This hotel will definitely grab your heart.

Overall, I had a great time lounging around at Grand Pigalle. Definitely made my time in Paris extra special.


Location: Convenient. It is about 5 minute walk away from Pigalle station. About 15-20 minutes away from most places you would likely travel to. Approximately 30 minutes away from CDG Airport via cab or Uber.

Comfort: Clean and comfortable beds. Bed feels medium-hard. Most boutique hotel rooms in Paris, are not very big. However, this one is spacious enough for comfort without feeling cramped. Bathrooms are large with tubs. The open balcony also gives more natural lights and space for more comfort on the eyes.

Staff friendliness: Very friendly and accommodating. Always makes recommendations and will help with anything needed. They also store luggage for no fees at all. I loved everyone here!

Price: Fair and comparable to surrounding hotels. Hotel prices in Paris are generally on the more expensive side. However, this boutique hotel is good value for what it has to offer. Prices may vary depending on availability and season.

    Balconies are always a must for me at hotels! I’m also really impressed with the amount of food you get for breakfast here – I’m used to two plain whimpy crackers, black coffee and mayyyybeee a small cup of fruit or yogurt everywhere else in Europe…

  33. June 20, 2018 / 2:11 AM

    Loving your photos! I hope you had a wonderful time in Paris!
