Why We Love This Hotel

- It is two blocks from the Metro
Hotel Declic is a photography-themed hotel. It opened in January 2016, and is in a quiet area of Paris, behind the butte of Montmartre.
The Sacre-Coeur is a 15-minute walk away and the Musee de Montmartre, which exhibits work by artists including Toulouse-Lautrec and Modigliani, is 10-minutes walk from the hotel. The museum was founded in the 1960s and has a pretty garden that is dedicated to Renoir. Le Grand Train, a pop-up food market and exhibition area in a disused train depot, is 15 minutes away on foot. It is open Wednesday-Sunday until 16 October. Lamarck - Caulaincourt Metro station (on line 12) is a five-minute walk from the hotel.
The hotel serves a buffet breakfast, and guests can order room service from the nearby Bistro Etoile de Montmartre. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate are available in the lobby from 2-5:30 p.m. (extra charge).
Rooms are small, but "well thought out", says The Daily Telegraph. They are decorated in three different styles: Reflex (blue and grey), Noir et Blanc (monochrome) and Chasseurs d’Etoiles (sparkly fibre optic lights). Wi-Fi is free.
