Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Central Montmarte location across the street from the Metro
  • Clean, contemporary rooms with flat-screen TVs and comfy beds
  • Sleek, sexy bathrooms (some with soaking tubs, some with walk-in showers)
  • Stylish decor throughout, with cool use of black silhouettes
  • Eiffel Tower views from some rooms (in the distance)
  • Cozy breakfast room with a computer for free guest use
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Some families might not like the red-light district location (but it is a safe neighborhood)
  • No amenities but a breakfast room
  • No work desks or mini-fridges in rooms
  • Some rooms are pretty small

Bottom Line

The 39-room Le Chat Noir Design Hotel is in the heart of the red-light district, a bohemian area in southern Montmartre. This district is known for its strong local flavor and an abundance of sex shops. Chic, comfortable rooms with sleek, fully renovated bathrooms are on offer in this contemporary and stylish property. Decor is simple, including fluffy white duvets, a cool use of black silhouettes, and touches of red in the flowing curtains. The red color scheme continues in the cozy breakfast room. Business travelers might miss having a work desk in the small rooms, and families might be discouraged by the red-light district location (though the neighborhood is perfectly safe), but the property does offer free Wi-Fi and Eiffel Tower views from some rooms.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Down the street from the Moulin Rouge, in the southern part of bohemian Montmartre

Le Chat Noir has a great location in southern Montmartre. The property sits on Boulevard de Clichy, steps away from world-famous Moulin Rouge and a short walk from the Sacre Coeur Basilica, two of the main draws in the area. Despite the abundance of sex shops, the red-light district is a safe and lively neighborhood, popular with tourists and locals alike, with a strong Parisian flavor. The nearest metro station, located across the street from the hotel, is Blanche.

The charming district of Montmarte is a short subway ride from central sights in Paris, giving the neighborhood a separate village feel. The area has historical significance and was once home to many famous artists' studios including Monet, Picasso, and Dali. In a nod to the past, local artists still set up their easels in the Place du Tertre. Hike to the top of the hill where the Sacre Coeur stands for breathtaking views of Paris.
