Upon arrival was upgraded from a deluxe room (lcd tv, jacuzzi,), to a Royale room, (large plasma tv, dvd player, cd player, jacuzzi in bathroom and Fireplace)!
The room was very luxurious with lots of red furnishings and a lovely big bed. Had a great view over the busy streets below. It;s within a a few mins distance from the metro where everything you need is within easy reach.
However, it is situated in Pigalle, Moulin Rouge, which is the red light district, this puts some people off. Outside the hotel is more or less surrounded by sex shops, which I was not bothered by really! Quite funny I even had a look in some of them. Many of them sold pretty and very sexy lingerie in them! :-)
Staff were very good in the hotel also, would reccomend this place to anyone visiting Paris.
Unique Quality: Decor of the rooms as a whole was very opulent and unique. Rooms furnished mostly in red. Jacuzzi bath is very nice and plasma tv encased in a gold picture frame is great for watching films.
Directions: Pigalle, Moulin Rouge
My family is planning a trip to paris in august. We would like to find out if villa royale hotel on pigalle area deserves its 4 or 5 star rating. Is the pigalle area safe since it is a sex district of paris?
I was a bit concerned that no one had gotten back to you. No it is definitely not a Five-Star property.
Ask your travel agent for a copy of the hotel inspection report. It's the only way you can get truly objkective information about hotels in Paris.
Pigalle has a high African/Middle eastern population and the back alley's are certainly not safe. On the other hand, Pigalle is within walking distance of some more upscale areas.
If it were me, I'd ask to be shown two or three options, along with the reports.
Given the sad sex trade at night, I think you can do far better for a Paris location.
Best pf luck.
