눉Approaching the hotel from Pigalle Metro Station, you see a large sign saying 'Villa Royale' atop a building, and a few doors at the bottom of that building directly below the sign. As i went into those doors i am told that this is not the hotel, just a cafe. The actual entrance to the hotel is around the corner. Opening the door to the hotel (which is a VERY heavy door), there is no immediate sign of reception, just some chairs and paintings. I had no-idea where to go until a worker walked past and took me to the reception (a tiny thing not bigger than a schooldesk). I checked in fine, but i was rather surprised that every single time i leave the hotel i have to give the key back to the reception staff and they will give it back to me upon my return. After coming back from a days activities, i go to reception to get my key back (from a person i had not met before), and all i had to do was say the room number and he gave me the key to the room. This begs the question of could anyone saunter into that hotel and ask for any room key and they'd get it? There were literally no checks, and this made me a tiny bit worried about my belongings when i was out and about. No complaints about the room, but if you want to be extra picky, it was a small gap between the bed and the wardrobe, so for people who are.... slightly larger, it may prove a problem. Also, one of the wardrobe doors opens less than halfway because of the bed.
눇A rather decent hotel, with each room dedicated to a certain type of Artist/Desginer, most of them French. The more expensive rooms get you the more upmarket designers; Louis Vuitton, Coco Chanel etc. The room i stayed in overlooked Pigalle Square and it was quite a nice atmosphere and view from my balcony. Pigalle metro station is less than 30 metres from the hotel entrance which is a big plus. With pretty good views of Sacre Coeur (rooms facing the front of the hotel) and a 10 minute walk from Moulin Rouge, its not the worst place to be in. The rooms are rather nice, with decorated carpets, plush wallpaper and an ornate bathroom. The beds were comfy, a touch on the firmer side but still nice. A generous amount of storage space for one room, with a good 12 hangars in the wardrobe. Just round the corner from the hotel is a long road full of sex shops and strip clubs. Didn't really bother me that they were there but its worth pointing out that there are a LOT.

눉- The location was both good and bad - right next to Pigalle sex shops and a large nightclub. Also lots of traffic. 1 night I slept great, but the next I had to put in earplugs. The windows do block out a lot of noise, but you will still notice the area is very lively and noisy especially if you are not used to it at home. - a few little detals that would maybe improve the total impression of the hotel..like a few missing buttons in the elevator velvet wall that could be replaced. - deposit upon arrival of 50eur. Maybe it's just in case there are damages to the room? Not sure. Either way, I don't understand why we have to pay a deposit upon arrival since the room has already been paid for by credit card, non refundable, on booking.com
눇- comfortable bed - I would describe the decor as "warm" and unique, plush. Not "cold" looking like modern business hotels. Charming. - we had a corner room with windows facing 2 directions, and there was a lot of light in the room during the day which is great, but also big thick curtains to block out light when you are sleeping - bathroom very charming, with a big window and lots of natural light, including hairdryer and toiletries, big towels - friendly and hospitable staff who stored our luggage after we checked out - great boulangerie next to the McDonalds across the street, highly recommended - location was both good and bad. Great for transport (2 metro lines, bus stops, taxis, right in front of hotel - however if you are physically able I would really recommend walking to the center...you will be pleasantly suprised at all the interesting and beautiful landmarks, buildings, city parks, shops and cafes along the way). Lots of restaurants and cafes in the area. Cross the main street to Montmartre district. However, check the other section for minus points.
