Considering the central location, this was good value. If you like Montmartre, which does have the Sacre Coeur and some charming back-streets but is becoming a seedy tourist-trap in parts, then you can do a lot worse than here. The en-suite bathroom in the double room was surprisingly good, new and well-maintained, and the double bed was fine. The staff were helpful but they had trouble with the credit card machine with me, eventually working. A criticism with this place and a lot of cheaper French city hotels is that the stairs were not good, certainly not "modern" and, while not generally dangerous, I would suggest any older adults take the elevator. Breakfast was included and standard but not bad. Overall, it is no palace but a lot better that what you can get in, for example, London for the same price.

I have stayed here a couple of months ago. Rooms were dirty with old and overused furniture, cables hanging out of the wall. Breakfast selection was poor. Staff were ok. There was a public car park very close by which was handy, and the only positive thing about the hotel is it's location. I would not like to come back again.

Dear Guests,

I would like to post my comments regarding this last review that is totally unfair to me.
The credit card card given to confirm the booking was not valid and the hotel was fully booked that day.
We have tried to reach you many times without any success
In this case,we had no other choice to cancell your reservation,it is a normal procedure and I am very sorry about that.

Kind regards from Paris.

I knew I wouldn't get the type of hotel where you get room service or have the option of going to the pool or the spa. I wanted a nice, clean, place to stay in Paris that would not cost me a fortune because I'm not really into hostels. The concierge was always so lovely. They give you breakfast and wifi. It is close to two metro stations (so everything) and it's in the heart of Montmartre. I couldn't have asked for more. My room was always clean; the bed was comfy enough (unless you're expecting memory foam); there was very little noise, and I was on the ground floor. I have nothing bad to say about this place. It was lovely and I'd go back any day.

My parents paid for a trip for me and my boyfriend to go to Paris for one night, two days, as we were already in France on a family holiday, at the end of July 2013.

It took us a while to find the hotel, as we weren't expecting it to be so close to Moulin Rouge!

The room that we had was not brilliant. The bed was comfy and the room was clean, but there was damp coming through the ceiling above the shower that looked like it was about to fall through; there was no shower curtain; there were no curtains over the bathroom window; there were cracks in the porcelain of the sink; the toilet seat was hanging off and the bathroom window would not shut without having to lift it up and slot it in place. We did not feel that we could leave our stuff in the room as we were on the first floor on the main street of Rue Forest and did not feel that the room was truly secure.

The good thing about the room was although we were on the main road, once you closed the window, there was hardly any sound. The only problem with that was it was over 30 degrees in the day, so the room was extremely hot.

The location is literally minutes from Moulin Rouge, which is excellent and the streets around the area have nice little local bakeries/shops/restaurants!

The room met our needs for a place to sleep, but unfortunately I do not think that I would come back unless the room was significantly better.

great location, just next to Sacre Cœur and Montmartre.
It'll take you just half an hour to get to the Gare du Nord ... on foot!
Helpful staff
good breakfasts
Next to the hotel you'll find a lot of small cafes and bakeries.
