My wife and I stayed here on two separate occasions in March 2017 for our honeymoon. It's very clean, in a great location, and the quirks associated with the theme are charming. Staff was helpful and the free snacks and beverages in the room and lobby were also very much appreciated.

Hotel Joke was truly a "home away from home." Clean, quiet and efficiently designed, the bed was extremely comfortable. The buffet breakfast included with the room was excellent with many choices. One only needed one other meal daily. Snacks and drinks are available all day. The staff understands hospitality and guests are treated like family. Convenient to transportation and dining....

I had 2 rooms, 1 for my husband and myself and another for the teens. This worked out great for us. They had our rooms right next to each other. The beds were very comfortable.

We stayed in Hotel Joke for 3 nights in March. The welcome could not have been more friendly. We were offered coffee the moment we walked through the door. We were also upgraded to superior room, which was a bonus. Room was clean and comfortable. Location is very good, just 200 m from Moulin Rouge and Blanche metro station. Monmartre...

Lovely coffee great breakfast free snacks and drinks and quite possibly the most friendly and charming staff I've ever come across. I cannot recommend this hotel enough

I couldn't recommend this Hotel highly enough. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff were amazing and went over and above to make us feel welcome. The location was excellent with lots of lovely restaurants and cafes around.

My teen son and I stayed at the Hotel Joke and had an awesome stay at the end of a three-country European summer trip. Probably the best things about the hotel are the staff and the style. I had pulled a leg muscle on the way to Paris from Germany and was in agonizing pain after arriving on the TGV....

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
