Tiny and decrepit
my girlfriend and i stayed in this hotel for a week on a city break, booking over the internet. The hotel was admittedly cheap, but we expected basic, not grotty. Our room was in a garret on the top floor, we had to lug our bags up 7 flights of stairs - no lift - to find a tiny room with plastic garden furniture as a chair, and a shower/ toilet you had to squeeze into to close the door. When the shower was used, the water seeped out onto the smelly carpet. Room was so small we couldn't pass each other by without getting on bed. No wardrobe. Breakfast was in the basement,in a nice vaulted room, however staff seemed totally bored to be there, abd service was perfunctory at best. Only plus is the location, barring that AVOID!
Me and my girlfriend lived here fore a weekend in the beginning of may. It was a good hotel, nice and clean. And it was a perfect location, 5 min from sacre coeur and 2 min from moulin rouge. Metropolitan by the corner. The room is very small, they look bigger on the pics, but for us there was no problem. I was a little disappointed though, the breakfast was not included. And if we wanted breakfast it would cost 7 euro per person/day.
I can definiteley recommend this hotel !
It was OK!
The breakfast was the only downside to this hotel. Given on rock solid baguette and butter. I felt very disapointed how was this going to keep me going through a long sight seeing day in Paris. The African guy on reception was quite patronising when we arrived. Another problem I faced was sitting on the toilets which was impossible the shower room was that small. I had to sit sideways.
Rooms very small and basic, but clean. Great price - we got three nights for the price of two - and great location, just down the road from Abbesses metro station, and right in the heart of Montmartre.
Really good place to be based - lots of friendly bars, restaurants and little shops nearby, but it wasn't noisy. The only problems were that we were given two single beds pushed together although we'd specified a double room. Also the breakfast staff were really unfriendly. Overall though, a good choice for people on a tight budget.
Would stay again
This is a budget hotel and if that is what you are after then I'd definitely recommend this. Rooms are clean and quite spacious - we had patio style plastic chairs in our room so don't come expecting luxury!
For the price we paid we were perfectly happy. Bathroom was small but adequate and we'd happily stay here again. The street outside is nice and bustling but not over noisy, it has a mixture of food stores and bars. It's only a couple of streets from the seediness of Boulevard de Clichy but is a world away in atmosphere and I'd have no qualms in recommending a stay here.
Great value / location
For its price, this is very good value. We were on top floor and no lift - you don't forget your wallet more than once!Location is great - I really like the Montmarte village atmosphere. We've stayed elsewhere in Paris, but I would always try to go back to Montmarte for its atmosphere - good Metro connections / loads of small shop selling cheap food and very cheap drink, inc wine and beer / general store / fantastic bakery, and lots of open-air stalls, esp. in the hilly street leading down to Moulin Rouge (5 mins by foot.) Abbesses Metro is 4 mins away, Sacre Coeur / that square where all the artists congregate is under 10mins (all on foot). Get up early and wander round near Sacre Coeur while the street are still being washed! Take camera - panoramic view from Sacre Coeur. Use your 3-day / 5-day / 7-day Metro ticket on the funicular to top of Sacre Coeur if you are tired.'Durer' bistro was great - 3 courses for about 15 Euros. e.g. French onion soup / boeuf bourgignon (beef casserole) with potatoes / creme caramel. But there are lost of cheapish places in Montmarte.Drinks are VERy expensive at most places.For hungry kids, there is a scruffy-ish McDonalds down the hill near to the Moulin Rouge (slightly seedy here for kids - Pigalle area).Hotel des Arts, not far from the above hotel, on Rue Tholoze (?) is also similar but a little dearer.The Dorling Kindersley Eye Witness Guide Books are good. Lots of good pictures rather than text! Good souvenir as well as guide books, as some newspaper once said.They do a France book (lots about Paris) and a Paris book (same info with added extras).
Perfectly low priced, nice area, pleasant staff
I stayed one night at the Sacre Coeur Comfort Inn in October 2003.As a lone female traveller I wanted to feel safe and secure and as this hotel is positioned in a pleasant, bustling street (there was a flea-market by the Abesses metro station on Sunday afternoon so the cafes were heaving, the shops were open) I felt comfortable.The Rue des Abesses runs parallel to Pigalle and is a street away from the Moulin Rouge; the streets running from the Rue des Abesses up the hill to Sacre Coeur are beautiful and evocative of a Frenchman's Paris.The room was on the first floor (I'd read the no elevator review on this site and heaved a sigh of relief!) and although the street outside was noisy, the window shut the noise out admirably. The room was also quite spacious, although the bathroom (with shower, basin & toilet) was titchy, there was no way to dry inside the bathroom, unless you stayed put in the shower. Room cleanliness was good and the staff were friendly and helpful. I didn't take breakfast at the hotel as it wasn't included in the room price (7 for breakfast).I would use this hotel again for another budget night sleep: particularly as there is a MonoPrix opposite the Moulin Rouge (stylish clothes and accessories, make-up, food, toiletries) and I found the cafes and tabacs around this area much cheaper than other parts of Paris.
Tight as a needle's eye
I and my wife booked the comfort inn,sacre-coeur,paris for a weekend break for one night 5/9/03-6/9/03.
the location of the hotel was fantastic and the staff very friendly,but
to our amusement the room and shower-room was very very small in
relation to what was displayed on the internet. i am six feet,four
inches tall and i found it very difficult to have a shower.i dropped
the soap and couldn't bend either side to pick it up.
It think it would be better if hotels put out a true discription of their facilities when advertisingt on the internet in order to allow people make informed choices.

Last day in Paris. L & E slip out early in the morning to get a latte at a nearby Starbucks. We have been making them here each morning but they have been absolutely terrible as we just picked up some ground espresso at the mini grocery store. It tastes like bad Instant coffee. Starbucks is suppose to open at 7am but they get there and the guy tells them to come back at 7:30! And then it starts to snow - huge ...
... man there was really nice and he gave us 4 chocolates each - for free. It was awesome. Then on the way back Mum took us the wrong way home and so we were late meeting Dad. Fortunately he had just let himself into the apartment. When we asked him what he had been up to he said he had just been wandering about.
It was about 5pm by now so we went to see this other market just down the road. When we got there it was a bit of a flop. So we went to a playground ...

I was not really so keen to wait so thought I would just set out and hope for the best, and sure enough found a little winding path alongside the highway that took me over the shopping mall in about 10 minutes. Nae bother. It was huge and I eventually found the food court and ordered us some McDo, mainly because I wanted to say that I had a royale with cheese Pulp ...
We had two items on our itinerary today.... putting locks on the bridge over the Siene (can't remember what it's called right now) and the Louvre. I learned that you should have nothing else on your itinerary the day you plan to see the Louvre. It is insanely big and confusing with such an immense collection of art that it is hardly possible to see everything without spending an ...
