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!
An excellent home-base in paris
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.
Rooms, as noted in other reviews, are plain but cheerful, and the view is OUTSTANDING! We looked out at the Eiffel tower, Moulin Rouge and most of the rest of the city spread out like a postcard in the distance. Takes your breath away.
Only criticism (and a tiny one) -- the evening desk staff when we were there were lovely -- very friendly and helpful; the day desk staff were two young women who were the only difficult/rude/sulky people we encountered in our whole stay (my experience of Paris has always been that most everyone is lovely to you if you are nice to them). No big deal, we just avoided the desk when they were there and asked for assistance from the evening staff when we needed it!
A safe bet for travellers on a budget -- Inexpensive, super-romantic neighborhood, simple, clean, friendly hotel with a GREAT view!
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.

... breeze it was so pleasant. We tried Croquet Monsier, (a grilled ham and cheese sandwich, dipped in egg batter like French toast with cheese added on the outer part of the bread, then pan fried so it all melts together! ) and Jambone Fromage (ham and cheese unmelted on a baguette) Ali's lemonade tasted more like perriere with sweetened lemon juice and orange slices in it. Orangina was all of our favorite drink! A quick stop at the souvenir shop next door ...
... the exact area it was in, but the street was
so small that it did not appear on my map. I must have circled it a dozen times
until finally I saw somebody walking with a falafel and accosted them for
directions. It was worth it. This thing was huge, fresh, vegetarian, and super
yummy. I’d definitely recommend it, and I thank those who recommended it to me.
On my way back to the hostel, I stopped at the market to ...
... a long queue and €6 ticket for the lift to the top. The lifts have a capacity of 40, are driven and double doored. We celebrated this occasion with a lovely champagne, along with many others. At 9 pm the building lit up with flashing lights and a blue searchlight flashed around the city, making for spectacular photos. There were many loved up couples and we took many couple photos, including a young man ...
... laughing. All night. ( I got my own back later. ) So we both had a red wine. At the cafe. Merlot... Good for skinned knees and damaged egos... Especially if drunk quickly . We even sat down to do it. Then we were off for a stroll around the Place D'Italie roundabout. Found a bank. Checked out the shops and restaurants. Very pretty place. Very busy roundabout and no lines on the road and they just fly into it ...
So, I'm obviously not going to manage to write a post every Waynesday since I couldn't even do it for the second week in a row. Lol. Anyway.
My first week traveling and catching up with old friends has been absolutely amazing. And I can confirm the theory that times goes slower when you're doing new things and breaking out of routine is 100% true!.... I feel like I've been away for a month already.
