For $70 AU per room, per night and staying in Montmartre – I’d like to see you get a better price than this. The room is definitely not five-star, but is comfortable enough. That being said, there are about twenty hotels within five-minutes walk of this place, so maybe just rock-up to this area and start asking. Don’t be fooled though by those cheap-and-nasty plastic box places that suggest they are in Montmartre, make sure you are staying in a privately-owned place near the center of Montmartre.
They were renovating at the time of this review. The kitchen was closed and the staircase and rooms all needed a good renovation, but it was still a good experience. When you’re staying in France, you want to be able to open shutter windows and look down over everyone on the street and people-watch. For me, that’s what staying in a hotel in France is all about.
Apart from being across-the-road from a McDonalds… which is a bad thing… You’re right in the action of Montmartre and this is where you want to be based in Paris. It’s a ten-minute walk to the Dali museum and the Sacre Coeur. It’s a ten-minute walk to the Moulin Rouge theatre and strip shows. Many, many awesome restaurants and bars. It’s near two subway stations, and that’s how you’re going to get to the Louvre, Sacra Coure, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Catacombes.
They’re there for you. Speak pretty-good english. Ask ’em stuff.
