Le B Montmartre Hotel: A Unique Boutique Hotel, A Stone’s Throw from the Moulin Rouge

It is in the 17th arrondissement, a stone’s throw from the Moulin Rouge that I discovered this boutique hotel.  Ideally located at the crossroads of Montmartre and Batignolles, at 6 rue Lécluse, it is also a showcase of Parisian elegance and modernity. The establishment was refreshed in 2012 thanks to the work of the talented architect François Lerault, who seduces tourists from all over the world and entirely renovated in 2020. Discover with me this charming hotel that offers a haven of peace in the heart of a lively Parisian district of Montmartre.

An idyllic location and an atmosphere with sober and timeless elegance

From my first steps in the boutique hotel, I was charmed. Its location in the 18th arrondissement and a stone’s throw from the Moulin Rouge is a blessing. It was a real pleasure to be able to stroll through the capital and this district that I love so much for its cultural and artistic side, without spending my time in transports, thanks to a location offering many points of interest within walking distance.

A unique atmosphere and an assumed personality that did not leave me indifferent including a peaceful and exotic setting in the small garden full of charm planted with tropical palm trees.

The hotel offers you the best of Paris accompanied by an exceptional service. Anxious to meet all your needs, the team of multilingual professionals is at your disposal 24 hours a day. The staff is extremely caring and welcoming. They will even help you carry your luggage to your room.

Discovering Montmartre on foot

This beautiful hotel has an ideal location to discover Montmartre for a few days: head for the Rue des Abbesses close to where multiple shops are located during a detour to Café des 2 Moulins, Galeries Lafayette and Passage Verdeau. Among the must-sees, are tourist attractions such as the famous Basilica of the Sacré Coeur about 5 minutes away by car, its art galleries, and the Dalí Space. We were able to walk through the old town, perfect to get lost in the small alleys!

Also, not to be missed is the Parc Monceau only 1.4 km away, the Mur des Je t’aime (Wall of I Love Yous) and the Place du Tertre which is located near the Sacré Coeur on foot. In the heart of a perfect neighborhood for a romantic stay, its restaurants and cafes will appeal to gourmets who want to please their taste buds.

Very well connected by metro lines 2 and 4, the hotel offers easy access to Parisian museums and monuments. Private parking is available within an 8-minute walk. Ask the hotel concierge for advice.

Thirty-six jewel boxes to put down your suitcases

This private mansion which was once the residence of Edmond Rostand offers thirty-six rooms with a crisp minimalist style, including five executive rooms and suites with surfaces ranging between 13 and 25 square meters, conceptualized like typical small Parisian apartments, and displaying distinct color codes: black and white, beige, and deep brown. A subtle combination of elegance and timeless contemporary chic with many decorative elements, like the Italian style walk-in shower which is just beautiful! You will also find a rainfall showerhead and luxury toiletries.

Enjoy a complete quality equipment: flat-screen TV, a safe and free high-speed Internet connection. The smallest bedroom has a double bed with high-end bedding. It is soundproofed by a carpeted floor while the Top Floor rooms have oak floors. Some rooms offer stunning views of the rooftops of Paris. The Privilege rooms (3 people) and the executive rooms offer you the comfort of a king size bed and are probably among the quietest in Paris, offering a view, for some, of the garden. As a family or as a couple, opt for a Patio Junior Suite or Junior Suite room that offer a marble bathroom and a balcony for some.

From the exclusive balcony rooms, the view enhances the living room and gives the modernity of the rooms a pleasant historical touch.

A generous continental breakfast

A generous continental breakfast is served each morning as a buffet in a room extended by the sunny terrace and garden. On sunny days, the service can of course be provided in the garden. From Monday to Saturday from 7am to 10am and Sundays from 7am to 11am, you will find an assortment of fresh sweet and savory products such as pastries, specialty breads, cereals, cheeses, fruit, but also hot drinks and fruit juices.

A Personalized Service.
