Terrass Hotel - Description
In the heart of Montmartre, The Terrass Hotel is a few minutes from the Moulin Rouge, the Espace Dali and Place du Tertre. The unique atmosphere of Montmartre makes it the ideal neighborhood for a stroll around the Sacre-Coeur Basilica, the interesting “Moulin de la Galette” windmill, and the famous Montmartre vineyards.
The style of the tasteful interior design varies from classic to the more contemporary. Many rooms have magnificent views over Paris and the Eiffel Tower. The “Au coin du Feu” hotel bar welcomes its guests in an elegant cozy atmosphere, and in winter a crackling chimney fire provides the perfect place to warm up. The lobby-level restaurant is particularly stylish and peaceful. From May to September, a terrace is opened on the seventh floor which offers a splendid panoramic view over Paris and its monuments.
The Terrass Hotel is a unique four-star establishment in Montmartre, offering 98 rooms in a majestic, turn-of-the-century building.

The hotel was located near the sex district - bonus! It was also near a metro and easy to get to and from the centre of Paris. The room was small but nice, with a big bed, a TV and a nice bathroom. It did not have a proper shower - that would have made it nicer. Breakfast was good quality, and the bar area looked nice. The concierge was really very helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a mid range nice (but not luxury) hotel. A good stay!
My husband and I celebrated my 50th birthday in Paris. We selected this hotel based on other reviews we had read. It was a fabulous choice. Montmarte is the highest point in Paris with great views. AskRead more for a room with a view, we were thrilled when our room had a balcony with a view of the Eiffel Tower. The hotel was located near 2 Metro stops. There are wonderful cafe's and great restaurants in the area. The hotel staff was helpful but not overly friendly. Definitely a good choice and recommend this hotel.
Booked this after reading positive reviews. Was looking for something a bit special for our 5 day honeymoon. Everything about the hotel was great. Rooms were cleaned daily. Views from the Terrace on theRead more 7th Floor of the Eiffel Tower and Montmartre Cemetery added a little bit of "Paris" to the stay.
We ate at the restaurant once in the evening, and although a bit pricey, had an amazingly good menu and food that could not be faulted. The location is also ideal as it is a 5 to 10 minute walk away from Moulin Rouge, Sacre Coeur and Metro station. Numerous bars and cafes are also ideal for nightime strolling and people watching.
Only downside, although it didn't detract from the experience, were the opening times of the restaurant and availability of room service. We arrived on a Sunday evening at 7pm and both the restaurant and room service were unavailable.
I have just come back from 3 nights at the hotel - we upgraded to a suite which was huge for a Paris hotel.
The rooms were lovely – although we were lower floor we didn’t have a view which was a shame & quite noisy.
The hotel itself is spotless & staff very helpful.
My only real complaint was the price it is expensive especially as you have to pay extra for breakfast, there are also no facilities as such there.
The mini bar was as usual horrendously priced
The location is fantastic.
Would I stay there again – probably not due to the price & the fact I would like to explore other areas of Paris
We were looking forward to staying at this hotel, for the past three years we had stayed in the area and had seen the hotel; we liked the look of it and so we booked our short break. Our room was averageRead more and on the 4th floor, it looked into the courtyard, not a huge problem but obviously no views. On our first day we left our room in the morning, the room door was locked when we left and we spent a good day seeing the sights. At 6pm we returned to find things had been disturbed in our room, on opening the wardrobe it was evident that many itmes of clothing and other valuable items were missing. We reported this immediately the reception staff. The reception staff were surprised, and claimed that this had never happened before. A member of staff came to our room, she took notes and remineded us to keep the windows locked; they were. She asked if the clothes were under the bed; they weren't. She said her staff were honest and had worked there for years. She told us that two of the hotel staff had entered the room that afternoon - this had been recoded on the electronic key. Not once did she apologise, she was defensive and we had no confidence that she will look into the theft which we reported to the police. Other valuable and setimental items were taken in addition to the clothing. We left the hotel the follwoing day as we did not trust anyone there anymore. I would NOT recommend this hotel to my friends or family. BEWARE.
I’m a little late in writing this, ok so its well over a year, but it would be rude if I didn't mention this wonderful hotel. I stayed here with my girlfriend (who I would be proposing to on this trip)
AfterRead more months of research and very careful planning, our trip was almost disrupted due to high security problems at Heathrow airport last year. We were extremely lucky to have even flown out. Due to the problems at Heathrow we did not receive our luggage and all we had were our passports and our cash cards. That was all!!
The Terrass was so helpful managing to provide us with t-shirts, toothbrushes, cleaning products etc. If this wasn’t enough they even upgraded us to a junior suit (if memory serves me correctly it was room 704). The room was exactly as I imagined it to be, if not better. It was clean, neat and very spacious with a clear and uninterrupted view of Paris and the Eiffel Tower. The bathroom was very large and well kept.
The location is perfect. Tucked away in the traditional French streets, surrounded by cafes and small shops, although busy it becomes quiet towards the evening so do not worry. By foot you could reach all the main streets leading to the main attractions this should take around 20 minutes.
Do not miss the Moulin Rouge. It’s an amazing show and a must on any trip to Paris. Again the Terrass helped by booking the tickets. Due to the smart dress code we needed to buy clothes at short notice. The Terrass couldn't have been kinder by drawing a detailed map to all the local shops were we could get as dressed up as possible.
All in all this is a wonderful hotel which I cannot wait to visit again. A must if you are to stay in Paris.
& if you're wondering she did say yes!
We stayed for 3 nights as a part of our honeymoon in Paris. Wow! The junior suite was amazing! The rooms were clean and massive for french standards. I will be coming back here every year.
I cannot recommendRead more this hotel enough. Go, book it now. Book the Junior Suite - don't bother with inclusive breakfast - go to the local supermarket and take your breakfast on the balcony.
If you want to stay in Paris, stay here.
Thanks to the other reviewers for giving very accurate reviews and advice. We stayed for two nights just last week and found the hotel to be very nice, and in a great location. We had room #801, one ofRead more two on the very top floor (you have to walk up a small circular staircase to get there) - it was a cozy, bright room with a terrific view of the Eiffel Tower and looking down on the Cemeterie Montmarte. We felt like we had a special room in the attic! As others recommended, I emailed the hotel to confirm the reservation, noting the special occasions (my bday and our 20th wedding anniversary) and asked for a view room; they responded a few days later granting that request.
Unfortunately it was too windy to enjoy dinner on the terrass, which looked lovely (on the 7th floor with a sweeping view), and we didn't have breakfast at the hotel either, so can't comment on the food. There is a great patisserie just down the street on the same block as the hotel that had excellent pastries and baguette sandwiches. Yum, I'm still thinking about the almond pain au chocolate.
We found a great restaurant up on the hill "Le Relaise de Butte" - one of the better meals we had in Paris all week!
The only part of our experience that seems to differ from others is the service/friendliness of staff. We were checked in a very business like manner, there were other guests being handled so we were basically just handed our key (the bellman helped with the luggage). After that, every time we entered or left the hotel the front desk staff were heads-down working at their desks and never looked up or greeted us in any way, even when the lobby was empty. When my husband went down for a recommendation for my birthday dinner, asking for a nice restaurant, they directed us to two different bars down the street. We walked by both and it was clearly a bar scene - no food was even being served!
The front door area was still under construction, it is supposed to be done in the next few days, it was no issue at all. However, when we asked about the internet, we were told that the WiFi doesn't work on the 8th floor and since they were having trouble with the cabled internet access they would only charge us 6 Euro to use the WiFi in the lobby (rather than complimentary per the other reviewer) instead of the usual 22/day!!!
We came across a great little street on our last morning, wish we found it sooner - it's about 2 blocks up the side street (St. Joseph?) - turn right and you will find a few blocks of great produce, butcher, patisseries/chocolate shops, fabulous cheese shop - everything you would need to put together a delicious picnic!!
One more thing - just this past month the City of Paris has installed over 10,000 "rental bikes" in stations around the city. You pay for a day/week/month pass from a kiosk, get a card, and use it to unlock a bike that you can use and then return to any other location. There are two brand-new stations just outside the door of the Terrass. Montmarte is pretty hilly but what a great option!
Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again!
Stayed 3 nights. Hotel in good location, lots of restaurants nearby for evening & near several metro stops for sightseeing. If you can get the 170 Euros inc breakfast rate this is a great deal - if youRead more have to pay extra for breakfast I wouldn't bother, have it nearby. Our rooms were fairly small,but not bad sized for Paris & had nice bathrooms. The staff were ok, but did not go out of their way to welcome us or explain where breakfast was served etc. If you stay here, seek out Chez Toinette which is a bistro about 5 minutes from hotel, its serves great french food in a friendly atmosphere. If I was staying in Paris again I would consider the Terrass Hotel, but only if the price was reasonable.
First, let me say that my wife is very picky about the hotels she stays in. After the first couple of nights at the Terrass Hotel, she told me “The Terrass Hotel is the best part of our visit to Paris”.Read more We stayed in a Junior Suite and it was very clean, very classy and had a balcony that looked to the west and south, giving us a good view of the Eiffel Tower. This was a five star room if ever there was on. The Junior Suite has a separate shower and tub, king size bed in a room by itself and in the other room, a pull down single (used by our son). Our friend stayed in a standard room, which she enjoyed as well.
The only problems we encountered were the fact that they were doing some remodeling just off the lobby which had somehow disrupted their internet service, They did, however, have wireless access in the lobby, for which they gave me a passcode free of charge. The hotel staff was VERY attentive, giving us a great recommendation on a nearby restaurant, the Pepone, a great Italian restaurant, run by Italians.
One day my son and I caught the train out to Disneyland Paris, leaving my wife and her friend to “fend” for themselves about Paris. When they asked how to catch the bus, the concierge, rather than risk confusing them, walked them across and down the street to the bus stop to be sure they got on the correct bus. Try to get that kind of service at a chain hotel! The staff’s English was very good, all the way down to housekeeping.
We did not use the restaurant, as we are not big on French food or restaurants (mostly pizza and French fries). During our stay, you had go outside to the street to enter the restaurant, as they were remodeling access way from the lobby to the restaurant. They have a terrace bar/restaurant on top of the building, which has a beautiful view of Paris. You must go up their just before the hour at night to see the Eiffel Tower ‘sparkle’. It was closed most of the time we were there because of rain, but you still have access to the terrace.
The hotel is not centrally located, but is very close to the bus stop and about three blocks from the Metro. The taxi drivers weren’t usually familiar with the hotel (maybe it was my French), so get the concierge to draw you a little map with the address to take with you to show the driver. All and all, it was one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed in and we HIGHLY recommend it.
