    Historical Traveler Reviews Hôtel Des Arts - Montmartre Paris

    Maybe I don't understand!

    from

    After re-reading the other reviews on the Hotel des Arts maybe I don't understand the true value of this hotel compared to other 2* hotels. I found the room extremely small, the bathroom even smaller, the shower looked like it had mold (but it was just stained), the pillows were like 'bags of cotton balls, the twin beds were narrowerer than a standard twin bed (I had to prop one side of my mattress up with blankets so I did not list to one side), you could hear things thru the walls and the front desk staff was only accommodating (they did not seem to be thrilled at wanting to help). However, the goods things were that it was located favorably, was generally clean, had some character and the rooms were decorated with personality. Now, given all that I may have expectations to high for the $111.00 US a night that we paid.

    Admittedly I have only stayed in private residences the two other times I have visited Paris. We stayed April 3 thru April 11. When I travel to Paris again I believe I will see what a 3* hotel has to offer!!

    Fantastic value!

    from

    The Hotel des Arts is set in picturesque surroundings, 5 minutes walk from both the Blanche and Abessess Metro stations. The posistion of the hotel could not be better, just off a bustling local street that has every convienience imaginable. The local restaurants/ bistros and caf?'s are great, catering for all number of tastes from classical French to Tibetan. Access to all the Parisian sites is extremley easy due to the proximity of 2 local Metro lines. The hotel itself far exceeds its 2 star rating! offering smart bright surroundings and some great views of the Parisian skyline. The staff are friendly, Multi-Lingual and are on hand 24 hours a day. Breakfast is a simple affair and is served in the quaint Stone basement. I will definatly be returing to this hotel on my next stay in Paris - if only for the great value it offers

    Best hotel in Montmartre

    from

    I have tried all the inexpensive hotels in Montmartre and the best of all is Hotel des Arts, 5 rue Tholoz. Also the price is terribly competitive, the hotel is clean, the atmosphere is very nice, the welcome is very friendly, I really feel at home, and the location is quite. It has no restaurant (they serve only breakfast )but there are plenty around.

    Hello from Paris

    A very pleasant week in Paris, Good Hotel, Very nice staff. I will be back in your hotel.

    The best hotel in Montmartre

    from

    We went to the hotel des arts just for a week end is not the first time we came in Montmartre. But It is the first time we found an hotel so wonderful in Paris. Everything in the hotel was excellent: the atmosphere, the room, the price... people working there are very helpfull ! Just one thing: we love cheese for breakfast and there is no in hotel des arts. If you want to enjoy your stay in Paris go to des arts hotel.

    Skip this hotel

    from

    We recently returned from a two week trip to Paris (Dec. 25- Jan. 8) and spent the last two nights of our trip at this hotel in Montmartre.

    The location is good, particularly if you are a lover of the film, Amelie. You are just two blocks from her workplace, Cafe des deux Moulins on Rue Lepic, and about eight blocks from her corner market.

    Also about a 20 minute walk to Sacre Coeur, up hill. Around the corner from this hotel is an excellent Tiebtan food restuarant. The hotel itself was adequate. It had the most extensive breakfast of our hotels with serve yourself set up. The room was dark and smelly (cigarettes and too much perfume to cover it up) and the bed was very soft. I think your budget dollar could best be spent at another hotel. It is probably a fine hotel if you are a smoker.

    Happy New Year

    from

    Just returned from New Year trip to Paris and was surprised to read the comments from two other subscribers. The rooms were warm comfortable and clean. Ours was an inside room on the ground floor which although dark was not a problem. We receved a pack written in English explaining all the times and terms with a questionaire asking for any comments.

    The other guests were from all over Europe and I would guess had all sourced their trips through the internet. Reflecting a modern International hotel in a superb area of Paris to have a lot of fun.

    There were no complaints from any of the guests and my girlfriend thought it was lovely. Would thoroughly recommend it to friends

    Disappointing, cheated out of a special weekend

    from

    We booked and paid online, a month in advance, for a two night stay at the Hotel des Arts in Paris. The Hotel des Arts is in a very pretty location and we paid extra for a 'room with a paris view'. The hotel looks beautifully decorated on the internet - but that's as much as we saw...

    When we arrived, the receptionist told us a cock and bull story about "first floor floorboards being up" and they'd booked us into a comparable hotel, nearby, and as a conciliatory gesture the hotel was 3* (in comparison to Hotel des Arts' 2 stars).

    The alternative hotel was the Hotel Bellevue - which is a fairly spartan and economical hotel, and is not in such a nice area (especially after nightfall). Bearing in mind, we had paid to stay in the Hotel des Arts, not getting the Hotel des Arts to tout us around as business to cheaper hotels.

    We arrived at the Hotel Bellevue (which has no name board outside, just a scrap of paper, blowing in the cold cold wind); the receptionist was unusually friendly, but didn't know who we were, why we were at his hotel, how many nights we were staying or if we had paid. (Also, the Hotel Bellevue was a 2* hotel.)

    At the Bellevue we had an unusually (for Paris) large room, but it was furnished with only one tiny radiator which only heated to lukewarm (the weekend we went, the weather was -2 degrees and wearing gloves in bed was a necessity!)

    I would not trust Hotel des Arts again, as although they took my phone number at the time of booking, but did not see fit to use it - as I would have happily accepted a refund and chosen my own alternative hotel (with heating).

    Do NOT stay at the Hotel Des Arts

    from

    I would not have said this until I checked out. The hotel is adequate in most respects, clean, well situated and reasonably priced.

    Unfortunately the manger and receptionist are both totally inept and staggeringly arrogant. The receptionist manged to charge my stay twice to my bank whilst telling me the transcation had been refused. Having settled the bill with another card I called my bank who advised me that the hotel had attempted to charge me twice. I attempted to rectify this with both the receptionist and the manager who claimed I was rude, apparently rudeness in his world equals politely asking him to rectify the errors of his incompetent staff. Paris has many fine hotels run by good people, this isn't one of them, don't stay there.

    Bad customer service

    from

    Hotel is basic but comfortable as what is expected for a 2* hotel, but the customer service was Appalling! No greeting (never mind "nice greeting") was given on our arrival. Although check in was at 12:00pm, they told us our rooms would not be ready till 2:30pm, No aplogy was given for this inconvenience, and for the duration of our stay no information was given to us about breakfast times, maid service, checking out procedures etc etc. So if your looking for a nice friendly enviroment for a romantic getaway (like us) Don't bother with this hotel.

    ... easy to follow the signs to the train station where we caught the RER in to Paris Gare du Nord. From there, it was only a couple of blocks to walk wheeling our luggage along the footpath to Hotel Mademoiselle. After settling in and a quick freshen up we found a little cafe nearby by where we ordered a couple of pizzas and then made our way back to the hotel where we were eager to sleep in a real bed for the first time in many ...

In the end I came down to our seat with the hand luggage (ousting a couple of girls who belonged elsewhere & thought their luck had changed when they found our seats vacant) & Dave spent half the trip standing in the luggage bay looking after our bags. He came & sat with me for a little while & ...

    A fun trip. And not thanks to AAirlines

    efforts to find a flight for us and since they overbook all their flights they
    had zero chances to help us anyways. Welcome to the Amazing Race.

    And none of them could retrieve our luggage. As I am writing
    this letter, our luggage is still not with us back home (we got back Monday the

    Once we got back down to the ground, we had some lunch and caught the Bateaux Parisiens boat that took us down the River Seine. We went under the bridges with all the padlocks ...
