Overall, this hotel is a great price considering the location - about a 10 minute walk from the Sacre Coeur and 15-20 min from Moulin Rouge. It's set directly between two metro stops so that is convenient.
At night, the area gets very active with hoodlums and hookers....I'm talking you have to walk through several GROUPS of them. They don't bother you or say anything, but, a bit unhinging considering you can stay other places in Paris and not deal with that. So, expect and be aware of that.
The hotel itself is alright...24 hour staffed desk. They buzz you in at the door, so it's secured at night. No lift so expect old rickety round staircase and pack accordingly. We were on the 1st floor (Room 11) and I quite liked the room. Nice size for Europe, decent bed, big shower, separate toilet room which I appreciate.
The 7 euro breakfast is not worth it....go to one of the many cafes in the area.
Had a glitch at checkout...we ate one day of breakfast so 14 euro for both of us. We were asked if we'd like breakfast and night before and paid that evening cash. At checkout, the guy insisted we didn't pay breakfast so we owe him our 3-nights stay PLUS breakfast. We kindly told him the story and asked for receipt that our room was paid. He insisted that the room is not paid, we still owe breakfast. We firmly but nicely say we paid breakfast on this night to this gentleman, please give us a receipt for the room. He called some guy over from across the street....I assume the manager or owner...and he got everything fixed right up.
Would I stay there again? No, not if I had better options but if not, like this trip, I would.
