Hotel Royal Fromentin
Ranked #958 of 1,803 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed 6 March 2007

This time I've visited the "ville lumière".

I've to say that due to the destination, I've booked the hotel at the end of November for a 5 days visit at beginning of March and in his way I've spared a lot of money, paying EUR 376 for 4 nights, including breakfast.

The hotel is in Pigalle quarter, the red zone of Paris, but we never had problems, even walking back to the hotel late at night.

From the airport of Charles de Gaulle you have to take RER up to Gare du Nord and than line 2 of the metro. You stop at Blanche.. I suggest you this exit (there's also Pigalle near the hotel) because the first think you see is Moulin Rouge! It's very beautiful and you feel immediatelly in Paris! More than that Montmartre and the Sacre Coeur are 800 meters far!

In front of this Metro station there is a supermarket Monoprix, perfect to spare some money buying water and drinks that are so expensive in Paris!

The hotel is 200 meters far, not very big. At the base floor there is the reception, a small internet point and the breakfast room. Our bedroom was on the top floor, the 7th, with a great view of Paris roofs. To go up a very small and beautiful elevator!

Room was big, even too much! It would have been better a smallest room, but with some more space in the bathroom.

No shower, but a bathtub, not so pratical also because there wasn't the curtain so you had to be carefull not to flood the floor!

Breakfast was good and abundant, but not so varied.

Due to the very closed Metro stations, it might happen to feel the train vibrations, but during the night the metro is closed, so no problem for sleeping!

Stayed at hotel during christmas period. Everything was fabulous. room was really spaciuos,(for the price you pay, in Paris especially),the bathroom was spacious,lcd tv,i myself work in hotel business, so know what to excpect. the hotel is rated 3 star, and believe me, there is worst 4 star hotels in Paris then this fab small hotel. The lift in the hotel, it;s a must!!! even if you are not stayinh in the hotel. breakfast was ok. location might put smbd off a bit, it's next to moulin rouge, but it's quite, and the metro station is just few steps away. The is 2 supermarkets near the hotel, if you fancy good food, and great wine. As a young family with young children who travel quite a bit, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this fab hotel. highly recommend!! will definitely visit again!!!

Number of stays in this hotel: 2

The Fromentin hotel is a 3 stars hotel and it can live up to that for Parisian standards.

I stayed in this hotel 2 times. The first time was excellent, the second time was not that good. The first time I had a spacious room with nice big windows and clean. The second time, I stayed on the top floor, I had to waith several hours before check-in. It was a horrible little attic-room. No space and a very small bathroom. The second stay made me reconsider to never stay in the hotel again.

-Rooms: just make sure you don't stay on the top floor and the room will be fine. Great view at the sacre coeur!


- Staff is polite, breakfast is good for parisian standard. (some choice, some cereal, more than the usual continential breakfast)

- The reception and lobby are outstanding! It is beautiful, just like the pictures and you can enjoy a beverage any time of the day in the pleasant lobby: a former absithbar. Very good ambiance.

- The location is not that good. You stay at boulevard Clichy/ rue fromentin. A red light district. Montmarte is, of course nearby, but if you dont like montmarte, its no fun. Touristic neighbourhood.

Have stayed at Royal Fromentin during a short business trip. Although I liked the hotel website, I was a little worried about the surroundings of the hotel - the close location to Pigalle or Moulin Rouge means many sexshops and bars open until late night are only a few steps away from the hotel. Despite all that, I did not feel insecure even around 1:00 am when returning to the hotel after a late dinner. The double bed in my room was very comfortable (see my photos in the candid traveler photos gallery), and I liked very much the renovated traditional lift and the breakfast room, which once used to be a cabaret. When arriving late at night, do not be surprised to find the entrance to the hotel locked, just use the doobell to reach the receptionist. With the seasonal rate promotions, would definitely visit again.

Stayed here for one night at the end of September. Booked a twin room which was not remotely like hotel website description. It was small with fairly poor furnishing and an old TV balanced on an old stand. No waste bin, no glass for water nor anything except 2 tiny twin beds.

Bathroom was ok and breakfast was fine but not anything special. Area above hotel fairly sleazy but not in a threatening way. Also not on main metro line so you need to change lines a few times to get to major sites.

Would I recommend it to stay? Certainly not at hotel advertised rate but not the absolute worst!
