The Terrass" Hotel perched atop the Montmartre Hill has undergone a substantial makeover. The rooms have been modernized, and the wonderful 140 m² terrace offering breathtaking views over Paris has been totally revamped.
After several months of renovation work, the Terrass Hotel (which has been in the Hurand family for five generations) has re-opened with an entirely new look. The Jérôme Verzegnassi design studio was charged with recreating the artistic ethos of Montmartre in the hotel.
A glass awning adds an elegant touch to the main entrance. The vintage mouldings have been restored, and early 20th-century advertising posters are part and parcel of the interior decoration.
The hotel has 92 rooms ranging in size from 16 m² to 30 m², redesigned to resemble artists’ lodgings, with a very contemporary feel. The largest suite is a spacious 50 m² and has a balcony-cum-terrace running the length of it. It also boasts a sauna with a view over the Paris rooftops.
The penthouse terrace
The hotel’s most appealing feature is undoubtedly its 380 m² seventh floor expanse, which has been refurbished to make room for a bar and restaurant in the style of an artist’s loft, with an outside terrace offering spectacular views. Guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner while admiring the vista of Paris and its monuments. The leafy terrace is dotted with deckchairs, parasols and small tables, making it the ideal spot to meet up at any time of day for a cocktail or a snack. The restaurant and bar have stylish, contemporary decor featuring wood panelling with copper accents; a glass wall shields the kitchen. There is a Paris bistro feel to the place.
Modular seminar rooms have been introduced to host private and corporate events for up to 200 people. Natural lights floods these spaces, which are equipped with the latest technology. There is also a games room with French billiards and arcade games for grownups in touch with their inner child. The ground floor restaurant is perfectly suited to group dining and convivial business lunches.
