The Penthouse Suite has classic views of the city, overlooking Montmartre and the Sacré-Cœur. There’s a retro feel to the bedroom, with coolly kitsch palm-tree-print wallpaper and a record player with a selection of 45s. Crank up some tunes then shake up drinks at your private, marble-topped in-room bar (with an ice-maker, shaker and other gizmos) – a foyer, seating area and 45sq m of floorspace ensure there’s room for a respectably sized soirée. There’s a mosaic-tiled ensuite with a rainfall shower and freestanding bath tub, from which you can spy the basilica. The suite also has a 27” iMac and flatscreen TV, free WiFi, air-conditioning and bath products designed by Ramdane Touhami (of Cire Trudon candles). On request, an extra bed can be added for €60 a night.
