The Montholon neighbourhood is a village in the centre of Paris. Situated to the south of Montmartre in the 9th arrondissement, it has lost none of its authenticity. A stroll through its narrow streets takes you past the windows of the eateries, small artisan businesses and art galleries that abound here.
Just off Montholon Square, the Maison Mère is tucked away in a building with real character. Inspired by the neighbourhood and with a connection to the residents, this boutique hotel has built an identity of its very own, somewhere between an urban hideaway and an arts centre. In the rooms, Japanese-inspired decor sits alongside a vintage style and Bauhaus references. Each and every one, from the smallest to the largest, has something special that makes it unique, be it a retro games console, private steam bath or the home-from-home feel of two adjoining rooms connected by a shared landing.
Finally, community participation goes hand in hand with hotel life. The Maison Mère aspires to bring guests and residents together through its art gallery, which changes from one exhibition to the next, its pop-up store dedicated to local artists, and its cocktail bar, where everyone can meet for drinks and conversation.
