About Le Regent Montmartre Hostel and Hotel
In the 9th Arrondissement Le Regent Montmartre is located within a typical Parisian building spread over several floors, and as the name suggests, it is situated by the famed Montmartre and Pigalle areas that are known for the numerous cafes, bars, entertainment venues and nightlife, like the renowned Moulin Rouge Caberet, etc, plus the many other Paris tourist attractions found in the area.
Having been fully renovated to provide comfortable accommodation, which includes double glazing and a lift, they have still retained original features including exposed stone walls, an original old French door to the breakfast room with the door knob that has a fox on it, as a reminder that part of the building was once used as a furrier, plus it still has the typical wrought iron style balconies on two floors of the facade with some rooms also having views to the impressive Sacre Coeur Basilica.
