Expert review of Terrass Hotel Paris
The grandest hotel in Montmartre occupies an imposing corner building put up in 1909 by the family who still own it today, and is a good option if you're after traditional grand hotel style in a district where most hotels tend towards the cheap and cheerful. The real draw here, though, is the summer roof terrace, up on the seventh floor, with views all over the city.
Halfway up la butte - ideal for exploring Montmartre's picturesque streets and the romantic cemetery nearby – or a metro ride into the centre of town.
98 rooms are hardly at the cutting edge of design but are good sized; older rooms veer towards bland and businessy, some with flouncy canopied beds, more recently redone deluxe rooms and junior suites have a more contemporary style; a few have balconies with great views.
The lobby has that peculiar combination of shiny marble floors and Louis XV furniture totally inappropriate to the building but in keeping with the conventions of "grand hotels". Pluses are the piano bar and restaurant. In summer, the restaurant moves to the seventh floor roof terrace, where you can dine with a view, and they've recently added a more loungey section with sofas and parasols where you can relax in the afternoon.
Rather formal reception desk manned by young men in suits.
A varied mix of business and tourists.
