Travel Blogs from Paris
I'm really bonding with a man named Henry on this trip. He's with his friend Lisa, taking a world tour, because, heart-breakingly, he's dying of inoperable lung cancer :( I'm trying not to think about that though. Overall, everyone on our tour is absolutely fantastic. While I may be one of the youngest (sometimes by several decades ;) ) it doesn't …

Historical Traveler Reviews Timhotel Montmartre Paris
We stayed here because of the reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The Montmartre neighborhood is beautiful anyway, but the picturesque square where the hotel sits was wonderful. It's close to the Metro and quite a few good restaurants and cafes. We stayed on the top floor (must say it was good to see an elevator there!) and had a fantastic view of the Eiffel Tower and the rest of Paris. You owe it to yourself to spring for the city view rooms. My wife and I enjoyed this hotel very much.
Quaint little square in a delighful area!
Stayed here at the begining of this month.Basic hotel in a delightful leafy square.Loads of reasonable places to eat nearby and very close to the Sacre Couer( whoops sorry about the spelling)We sat on the steps one night at 3am drinking wine.Very romantic.Would stay there again.Try it!
Honeymooned here in September 1998. A simple, clean, friendly hotel in an absolutely fabulous location! Take your early-morning coffee out into the tiny little shady square and watch the parisians start their day. Bateau Lavoir, the cafe around the corner, is charming and the food is simple and divine. Moulin a Vin, another cafe within walking distance also wonderful. We would have happily never left Montmartre our whole stay, the area is that fascinating.
Great little hotel
Great little hotel in a great location. We had a comfortable, clean room, with views of the Sacre Couer. Staff were friendly.
Since every moderately priced hotel room in Paris is hideously ugly, the simple decor, delightful location and relatively low prices of Timhotel Montmartre were a relief. (Don't get me wrong, the interiors are still pretty ugly!:-))
The setting is a slanted niche of a small public plaza on the Montmartre hillside -- the kind of spot that is always welcoming to come home to. There's a cafe and an excellent patiserrie just across the street. If you can, definitely get a "room with view" on an upper floor, and you will be rewarded with an unobstructed view of the Eiffel Tower or Sacre Coeur. There is one newly refurbished magnificant room in the corner of the top floor with views BOTH ways. A great base from which to explore the Montmartre neighborhood.
We chose the Timhotel Montmatre for a budget weekend in Paris and found a good price on Expedia. The hotel has a terrific location, overlooking a lovely quiet square and a short walk away from the Abbess metro and Sacre Coeur. The rooms were small and functional, a bit soul-less with MFI type furniture, but very clean with decent towels and soap. We enjoyed walking around the quiet side streets of Montmartre, the views were beautiful at night but we avoided the Place du Tetre, the artists hassle you and it's packed with tourists. The staff at the hotel all spoke English but we enjoyed practicing our French - it's worth trying to speak it a little even if you don't know much. The breakfast room looked a bit cramped but we preferred trying out the local cafes. We would recommend the patisserie next door to the hotel, the pastries were gorgeous.
Timhotel Montmartre - Great location, clean, cheap & friendly!
Excellent hotel on the slopes of Montmartre. Near enough Pigalle & Sacre Coeur but in a very quiet square so you don't feel overrun by tourists.Clean & friendly. Good value tasty buffet breakfast available.Would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.
Nice friendly service.Nice settingsFor a continental breakfast, it was very good.Room, small, but quit OK.I'll go there again.
Ambiance is everything!!
Sometimes it's all about the location. My boyfriend and I stayed here in August 2001. It was such a romantic atmosphere on the sloping hill of Montmartre...we had a breathtaking view of Sacre Coeur--definitely worth the extra $ for the view. Outside there was accordian music drifting through the streets. The room was comfortable and clean...the bathroom was small, but clean. The staff did not speak English very well (or at all) so check in and out was a little confusing. Breakfast is not worth the extra money--it was very cramped and the staff doesn't seem to like it when people show up 10 minutes bfore breakfast is supposed to end (the maid was muttering in French, very perturbed) It was ideal for that artsy Parisian feel.
We'd go again !
Nice location, rooms are very clean tho' small and the bathrooms tiny - but those with the good views make it worth it. Breakfast a bit cramped and nothing special, but OK.
We found the staff generally helpful.
Good restaurants and cafes nearby.
Watch out for bag snatchers in the area (we didn't and had one snatched in the metro)
We've been twice and would go again.
