    « Didn't really feel like 4 stars »

    Helpful and friendly staff. However, on the day of departure the cleaner tried to enter the room twice before we left the hotel. I've always thought they clean up the rooms after the guests have checked out, but in this case the cleaner knocked and opened the door before we had any time to put our clothes on, which was pretty embarrassing. The breakfast was tasty yet we would've expected a little more. Also the room was small and didn't quite feel like we were staying in a 4 star hotel. The biggest issue however was the location. The neighbourhood felt very unsafe, especially the area right next to Chateau Rouge (which was under renovation) that was mentioned as the nearest metro station. We suggest using Marcadet-Poissonniers - which is better from these two questionable choices. All in all, the hotel itself was peaceful and clean. Had the rating been 3 stars, I don't think there would've been much to complain about - except for the location.

    « Average.. »

    The gentleman at the front desk was really nice. We arrived a little early so he let us leave our bags with him at reception. Our room was ok, we were quite high up so we had a nice view. The only thing with the room was that the sockets were all far away form the bed. Breakfast was not what I was expecting. The eggs and sausages were not freshly made- out of a bag. The neighbourhood is a little rough. Good thing is that there's a supermarket nearby so you can buy food, and so is the train station. This hotel was also walking distance to Sacre coeur.

    « Location, location, location ... »

    What can you expect from a Best Western: small but clean rooms, a tired interior and average breakfast. So why does this Best Western deserves a 'very good' rating? Because of the friendly service, good price/quality ratio (I booked well in advance) and, above all, for the location (a mere 10-15 minutes walk from the Sacre Coeur or Gare du Nord). BTW: The area itself is actually not very scenic ...

    « Oh My God »

    Stayed at this hotel for one night in Transit through Paris. Yes it is in Paris in very rough neighbor hood. No on site parking and in morning some people out laying in the streets by hotel. Room super small as well as breakfast. Get there when it is still daylight and stay there as last resort but no more then one night

    « Too many things that did not worked »

    Water heater did not worked, Wi-Fi did not worked, only 1 cup on 2 persons room, breakfast ok. Too hot to sleep, thinking the thermometer did not worked either and propably very hot on summertime. Friendly staff. To me not a 4 star place

    « Kettles »

    This hotel was very nice 4 star staff very helpful - or most of them where one or two could not be bothered. Small rooms, but I think that is very Paris. Clean, good breakfast nice people, and not to pricey would definitely stay again.The only problem was the kettle, just miss my breakfast cup of tea. It did not work, the nice lady cleaning the rooms looked at it for me and said, oh its not you (it was a different kind of kettle and I though It was me being stupid) non, non, its not you I will replace it it has brocken. True to her word she did. Only problem was the next morning that one didn't work either. Other thing that should be said is that the area at night - you need to be a bit careful. But would stay again.

    « Good hotel that suffers due to location »

    The hotel is an easy walk from Gard du Nord though the experience may be a little more than you expect! The staff on reception are excellent and breakfast was varied and good value. The sweet treats in the lounge from 2pm - 6pm are a bonus. Rooms are compact but clean and in good condition. Bathroom though small is well laid out with an excellent shower. Tea and coffeee making facilities was also a bonus. I would recommend the hotel but not the area it is in. Street sellers offering mobile phones, cigarettes, corn on the cob and other services occupy pavement space from m mid morning till late. Choose a room at the back of the hotel as traffic noise lingers till late. The nearest Metro is closed until 2017 but go out of the hotel and turn right and you will fall no another within 5 minutes walk. If you decide to walk into the centre cross the road as this side appears to be less of a commercial street selling domain. Again good hotel but ............

    « Good value for money, shame about the neighbourhood »

    This is a great hotel. The staff are very courteous, the breakfast fresh and varied and great value. The rooms are a reasonable size with good facilities. Our room was at the front and it was very noisy so I would recommend you ask for one higher up and at the back of the hotel. The hotel suffers from the neighbourhood it is located in. Whilst it is close to two stations which makes travelling to the centre of Paris easy, the outside is noisy and dirty. It is in an area that is densely populated and in need of regeneration. The traffic is heavy and means that it is busy late into the night. There are a lot of local street traders who set up their stalls late into the afternoon and are there until late at night. The 'stalls' are old supermarket trollies with a brazier in on which they cook corn on the cob. Young men gather on street corners selling mobile phones and packets of cigarettes. Women sell goods from shopping bags and there are beggars on mattresses on the pavement. We crossed the road to walk to the train station or in the one time we walked back to Gare du Nord. If I was a single traveller I would not have ventured out in the evening as there were so many people around. This is a shame as the hotel is absolutely fine.

    « Good hotel »

    Hotel was clean, room was lovely, comfortable bed, nice breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, area not too good, very similar to parts of London but it didnt spoil our stay. Recommend the open top bus best way to see the sites.

    « There are a lot better hotels around »

    I always stay in a Best Western in Paris. This is my first time here and I won't be back. Hotel is not in a good neighbourhood. I was propositioned twice on the way in later on. Very oppressive feel on the street too. Room was small. Also skirting coming off the wall and a repair to the wall was incomplete - see photos. I'm a platinum card holder and I'm meant to get a free upgrade??. I would hate to see the other rooms. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was clean I won't be back, there are a lot better at a similar price

    « Lovely hotel »

    Lovely hotel with friendly helpful staff The rooms are quite small but very clean Ensuite bathrooms Tea and coffee making facilities and flat screen TVs. Breakfast is continental Includes toast, croissants, eggs, sausage, ham, cheese etc Orange/apple juice and tea/coffee Reception staff very friendly and were able to offer advice on the metro and places to eat. Would definitely return here

    « Lovely hotel »

    Hotel was clean and very well presented with very helpful staff. There was both free wifi and a free safe to use which were both very useful. The staff were friendly and welcoming and always willing to help with what was needed. The room was comfy and came with aircon which was very welcome in the 34C heat. Easy access to Metro stations which meant it was relatively easy to get into central Paris The shower was slow to drain and on the 2nd day we had to go and get the keys reactivated. The area was slightly rougher than expected and I wouldn't recommend this hotel for young families or travelers who are likely to be out late at night. Overall however it was perfect for the short trip that we took

    « Good. Dispels the myth about poor service in France. »

    In the heart of Paris, you expect the rooms to be quite small, and that was the case at BW Sacre Couer. It was however, nicely decorated and comfortable and when the weather's good in Paris, who wants to spend a lot of time in the room? Problems with the air con developed the first evening and when they couldn't be fixed by Cedric the receptionist / concierge / tourism advisor (more of him later) he moved us into an identical room on a lower floor. Both rooms were at the back of the hotel which was nice and quiet. We chose the hotel to be (wife's words) "In the centre of everything", and this part of Montmartre is certainly very lively. It's a mainly African community (merging into Turkish / Arab as you walk a couple of hundred yards) and however late we returned, shops were still open and street traders doing business. I was a little uncomfortable at first but soon realised that the locals were friendly and helpful in every way. Most of the shops we visited were just as happy speaking English as French. The hotel is right at the base of the Sacre Coeur hill, so this can be reached in a five minute walk and offers a wealth of reasonably priced, reasonable quality restaurants (as well as all the art touts if you fancy a quick portrait). Metro and buses are both close to the hotel, and Cedric was ever ready to give advice and print maps to advice on the best ways to get places. My wife and I never had breakfast in the hotel (large, late dinners put paid to wanting to eat in the morning) and apart from that there wasn't much going on in the hotel. There was a comfortable looking lounge but we didn't use it. Beyond that though - nothing. The hotel details say no parking is available, but good old Cedric told us of a nearby garage that does a deal for guests at €24 for 24 hours. We managed to get by using on-street parking which is free from 20:00 Saturday to 09:00 Monday (but costs €0.60 for 15 minutes when it's not free) All in all, I thought it was very reasonably priced and more than adequate for what we wanted. Nice, speedy internet available (a bit of a rarity in Paris) and no complaints about anything at all. Definitely a place I'd stay again.

    « Hotel good but area not that good »

    Good points for this hotel are, walking distance from the train station, Underground very near too, Sacre Cour and Moulin Rogue are in walking distance too and a carrefour ( similar to tesco express) is next door to the hotel really handy.The breakfast is very good. The rooms are comfortable and they had coffee and tea amenities . Downside the area is not the best for tourist.

    « Total disaster!! »

    I booked to stay here for 2 nights for wife's birthday, 12-14th August. Firstly, the local area.......totally awful, just walking from the station to here was very intimidating, so many people surrounding you, very run down and if someone placed you there and asked you which city you were in the last place you would say is Paris. Now the hotel, passable on entry but when we finally looked to check in they couldn't find my reservation even though I presented them with a confirmation letter, an hour later after phone calls etc it turned out that they had overbooked and we're supposed to contact me so I could make alternative arrangements, that never happened so now it's 9.00pm, my wife and I are in a foreign country with no accommodation!! One small credit is they rang another hotel which we managed to get to but they wasn't at all bothered in the fact they had put us in a terrible situation, no offer to transport us to the new hotel either. Even if you offered me a free holiday here I wouldn't take it and I will be staying clear of this chain of hotel jokers!! For you own sake, keep clear of this place.

    « Lovely Little Hotel »

    The rooms are very small but we just wanted somewhere to sleep and shower. It's so clean and the staff are really friendly and very helpful. The view from our window was great it looked up the street to all the bars. The price is so reasonable considering it's so near the Moulin Rouge and it's location. Very handy for the Metro virtually right outside the door. I will definitely go back there.

    « The neighborhood is a disaster!!! »

    I stayed here last week. The hotel was very clean and the staff was amazing, BUT... The neighborhood that this hotel is in is atrocious! It is filthy, run down, and feels very unsafe. If you are a woman, you will be constantly harassed from the moment you step outside of the hotel. Many of the businesses on this street are closed down or covered in graffiti. The sidewalks are blanketed with trash. It is a €25-30 can ride to get to any of the major attractions with no traffic. With traffic (which is the norm),it can be as much as €40-45. My advice would be to avoid this hotel and any hotel in the Paris Nord neighborhood.

    « Stinky and awful !! »

    The worst hotel experience ever !!!!! The room was dirty, the bed and all the furniture seems that were not thoroughly cleaned. Our room was too small and the photos about it were misleading. The neighborhood is awful too. It is not in Montmartre, but in the outskirts of Montmartre. But the most tragic of all was that the cleaning stuff was spreading its awful smell to the whole floor while "cleaning". Definitely not the people that sb would hire for this job. Could be chosen only for emergency situations and in any case not for holidays. Low price should not justify this significant lack of quality.

    « Excellent Reception people ... good location (during day) »

    Well near the Sacré Coeur and Place du Tertre etc. Not too far from Metro. Reception people are TOP; poor breakfast and modest room. Elevator was 2x not working on 3 days. Slow wifi on room. ... but nice saloon with free nespresso coffee

    « A Good choice to stay in Paris if you are good in Public transferring »

    I stayed there alone in Jan 2016 for 3 nights and found it suitable for the people who wanna just have a resort and spent time out (Actually most people do the same in Paris) Positive points: -Availability to Metro and Bus station and close to the most monuments -Free Wifi -Friendly Staff -Easy check-in and Check-out -Price Negative points: -The breakfast -Room Service

    « Stay here for the location and exceptional service »

    I can't say enough about the service here - the front desk was very friendly and most helpful. I feel like they went out of their way to make my sons' first trip to Paris fun helping us with directions and pointing out places nearby. The hotel is literally a 3 block walk to the steps to Sacre Coeur and about 2 blocks to a subway station. Others have mentioned the neighborhood and trouble being approached or hassled, but we never experienced that at all. Another review mentions a restaurant Sacree Fleur, about 2 blocks away - we tried it and it is exceptional, would highly recommend it; they were able to work us in but I would recommend reservations. The only down sides to the hotel were that the room was very basic, probably like a 1 star property in the US but so many European places are more basic. We also had trouble with the elevator 2 days - it says max 4 people and it means it, DON'T try to get any more on there. Overall, I would recommend it based on the friendly helpful service.

    « Hotel experience ~ extra charges not expected »

    This hotel is situated on a busy, noisy main road, which is not entirely unexpected in a city like Paris, had not stayed in this area of Paris before, but proved to be to our benefit as it their were floods at tine around the Seine. The room was adequate, but we did ask for a back room when booking and we were given a main street room so the noise, traffic & shouting was continuous day & night. However, despite lack of storage, no facility for anyone who speaks English to watch the TV, no internet connection as it was too slow to catch a cold, it was cleaned daily, serviced & clean towels etc. My main upset was at check out which was a bit of a joke. The taxi was waiting & the staff were so slow it cost an extra 10 Euros on taxi fee, PLUS we were assured at check-in that out breakfast was included in the price, NOT SO we were charged an extra 77 Euros for 3 nights stay, not expected, and after contacting their customer service we have been totally ignored, so it was a disappointing end to our visit, we knew about the extra city tax, but they insist we paid the full extras. We noticed that the advertised rate was 20 Euro less than we paid so we took the extra to be out breakfast fee, so beware of this folks, we were unable to leave until it was settled in their favour. Our Paris stay was memorable, the hotel stay was for a different reason on check-out.

    « good stay »

    very clean hotel and friendly staff inside, had a back room which was quiet and no noise from the street. breakfast was very good and the sitting room was a steer pleasure to relax and read some magazines

    « Hotel location »

    This hotel is located in a busy district. As you go out of the hotel -you can catch the bus going to the different train station. They are next door to a supermarket so it's very convenient. It is a 10 minute walk to Sacre Coeur church. We didn't know there was a funicular going up to the church so we had to climb the stairs -more than 100 steps I think. The reception people are very friendly and helpful.

    « A pleasant surprise »

    I booked a single room and asked for a quiet one. The bed was indeed a single but it was very comfy. I was very happy with the room and it was very quiet in room 604 on the top floor. The nearest metro is Jules Joffrin; Google maps says another one is closer - if it is then it's not much closer and it's also uphill. Use Jules Joffrin if you have luggage with wheels. The whole Montmartre area is lovely, but be prepared to be hassled. Be alert and assertive to avoid getting sucked into their scams. Sacre Coeur is beautiful and the view across Paris is stunning.

    « Poor service, nice rooms »

    We checked into the hotel at night around 12AM from a long day. When we arrived, there was no one at the reception desk and we waited for 10 minutes for someone to arrive. When the person did arrive, it took us half an hour to check in. The person who was at the desk was very rude, saying multiple times that he didn't see my booking and that they 'don't use priceline' when in fact I booked and paid fully through priceline. Afterwards, when we tried to go into our room, our key wasn't working. So we went downstairs, and I was told that "the key didn't work because you didn't listen." Of course, it turns out that the key wasn't magnetized properly. Worst hotel experience I have ever had.

    « Location »

    Stayed here as part of my 21st birthday present. Hotel is nice, rooms are a good size and breakfast is a good variety only down side is the location as its a little out the way. Would deffanitly stay here again though!

    « good price for middle aged hotel in a lively area »

    the hotel is close to sacre coeur in mont martre. this is a really lovely and enjoyable area if you ignore the horrible tourist from all over the world. lots of restaurants and bars around and a good connection via metro to the rest of paris.

    « Rather a 3 stars hotel, bad neighbourhood »

    (+) Friendly staff, free WiFi, comfortable bed (-) Not the best place to stay in Paris even if it's close to city center. We did not like the neighbourhood at all, scary and dirty. Tiny room, no fridge. Rather a 3 stars hotel.

    « Nice hotel in a bad area »

    We got a great price through Priceline Express Deals. The hotel is very nice - great room, comfortable, with strong wifi and a nice bathroom with a spacious standup shower. The staff was nice and helpful. The hotel is conveniently located at Metro stop Chateau Ruge. The only negative is that the neighborhood is not good. We did not have any problems, but it's not a good area - streets are loud, crowded and full of vagrants and solicitors during the day. It was actually better at night! I would not recommend for families but would only for seasoned travelers who know how to get through a crowd without being convinced to stop and talk to every person begging or selling.

    « Great place to stay on a budget »

    Decent rooms, clean beds and bathroom and helpful concierges. It's not the most glamorous of settings, but you have access to the Metro on the doorstep with some good restaurants and bars in walking distance at a sensible price, if you're booking online. The beds was a decent size, towels changed every day and good pressure and heat in the shower. Didn't have the breakfast option, but it looked fine.

    « Ok Property Sketchy Area »

    My adult son and I spent 3 nights recently at this property. The room was adequate and very typical size by European standards with a larger bathroom than most we've stayed in. It was reasonably clean and we were fortunate enough to be given a room overlooking the street on the 6th floor with a nice view (we asked for this request based on some other reviews). The neighborhood however was very shadey at best. I would have been very afraid if I wasn't there with my 6'4" son!! The room was not serviced the second day we were there although the housekeeper saw us leave early afternoon - when we later enquired ar the front desk we were told she already went home. Also we wanted to have some items laundered - it took TWO days to get our clothing back because the hotel doesn't have a dryer and they had to hang dry our clothes! (I could have done that in my room!) As a further note my son speaks fluent French so there was never a language barrier - the front desk staff does speak English but I felt one staff person in particular was condescending. I feel this hotel and location is over-rated - it is not in what I would consider the Monmatre area but rather on the outskirts. The immediate subway stop and street surrounding this stop is extremely crowded with people pushing and shoving- watch you purse/personal items! Nothing happened to us but as I stated I was afraid. Oh - two great things - immediately next door to the hotel was an amazing local grocery store - we went there on a couple of occasions to buy fresh bread, cheese, pate, wine, fruit etc. so we could pack up lunches. The other recommendation about 3 blocks away is a restaurant called SACREE FLEUR - one of the best restaurants we dined at - specializing in beef dishes. Reservations are highly recommended as it's a very small place (only seats about 40 people). We were lucky to have showed up on a Thursday night about 830pm and only had to wait a few minutes for a table. It closes at 1000pm. I suspect that getting a table might not be so easy on weekends. Do make a reservation just to be safe! Would we stay at this hotel again - definitely NOT but in all fairness we did get a moderate price through Next time I would read all the reviews first and pick a different area!

    « Below level of expectations »

    We booked room for 2 people and bed for not even enough for one person ,initially we thought it was by mistake we booked something wrong but the person at reception confirmed it is for 2 people. Didn't like it staff was ignoring our requests sometimes .

    « A great base for seeing Paris »

    The room was small but absolutely fine for two people with a nice bathroom and our room on the top floor even had a balcony with an incredible view over Paris. The hotel is out in the Montmatre district which can feel a little intimidating at first but is a perfectly pleasant part of Paris once you settle in. The Sacre Coeur is 15 minutes walk and all the sites of Paris are easily accesible from either of the two Metro lines which are around a five minute walk in either direction from the hotel. Would recommend as a perfect base for seeing Paris.

    « Great stay for a great price »

    The Best Western Montmartre Sacre-Coeur is a decently priced (for Paris), decently located, comfortable hotel. The rooms are small by North American standards, but this room size is the norm in European cities. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was very clean with a great shower. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Prior to our stay I had read many complaints about this area. Admittedly, coming out of the Chateau Rouge subway station was overwhelming, with people trying to sell things along the street, a lot of construction, and not a lot of what you'd imagine Paris to look like. That said, I would certainly not say that the area is dangerous in any way. It is an area with a high immigrant population, and I'd venture to say that those who found this area unsafe are likely just uncomfortable with the number of North African immigrants. Which is absurd. Sacre-Coeur church is right up the street, and the surrounding area there is very charming. The subway stations are very well connected on lines 4 and 12, and it is easy to access all of the typical Parisian sights. I'd happily stay here again.

    « Not recommended »

    My friend and I stayed at this hotel for our holidays. Despite the fact that the hotel is located in a rather disadvantaged area, we did not encounter any difficulties outside the hotel. We were, however, deceived by the staff twice, as we tried to figure out the best option of getting to CDG airport. First, one staff member told us double prices for the metro and shuttle so that we would choose a taxi. Second, another staff member helped us book a hotel-affiliated shuttle without warning us that we had to have exact change on us to pay the driver. My friend and I travelled to the airport separately and the driver did not have any change on him. This sort of deal-making is unacceptable for the hotel that claims to be a four-star place.

    « Hidden gem »

    Stayed at this hotel for four days for New Years Eve. Area may not be the best but the hotel is terrific with really helpful staff. My friend and I enjoyed the area and went for a walk around the very busy market both at night and in the daytime. Very close to Montmartre which is where we needed to be for NYE. All uphill on the way so you need to be fit! Also easy acces on line 12 for museums and Euffel Tower. Lots of little eateries around for lunch and dinner. Breakfast at the hotel was perfectly adequate for my friend and I as we do not eat big breakfasts. Will definitely stay again

    « Fab hotel »

    Very clean, comfy room on the top floor with great view. Wi Fi worked great. Staff really helpful, on our check out they let us leave our case there all day. Breakfast very good. Only 3 metro stops from train station and short walk from metro. Not a very smart area but felt safe. Really recommend this hotel.

    « Not the best location for a short break »

    Myself and my SO visited Paris during half term week in October and picked this hotel for the price, not realising it's actually quite a distance to the centre of Paris. The public areas of the hotel are nicely presented and clean: the reception area, there is a small seating area next to the reception and the breakfast area (it looks as it does in the photos on trip advisor, although the areas are a little smaller than the photos make them look) . There is also a good little lift to take you up to all floors if you don't want to take the stairs. The room itself seemed a little outdated to us, it's saving grace was the little en-suite which was more modern and clean. The carpet was old and tired and the mattress not particularly comfortable. The paint on the walls could do with a refresh as could the old dark furniture. There wasn't a plug socket near to the mirror in the room which caused a bit of a problem for me when trying to do my hair for a night out. The main issue for us with the room was that the walls were extremely thin and so we could hear everything went on around us: every time the room next to us flushed the toilet, when people came back late and were making noise in the corridor - they might as well have been in the room! The aircon unit was no use and we couldn't open the window as the noise from the traffic outside filled the room. The wifi in the room was awful too, we had to crouch in a spot by the door just to get one bar of wifi signal. Wifi is better in the breakfast area, but only just. The breakfast on offer was ok, there was fruit and yoghurt, a small selection of pastries and bread, deli meats and sausage, scrambled egg and boiled eggs, tea, coffee and orange juice. Although the location is close to a metro station (Chateau Rouge) it is a bit run down and doesn't feel particularly safe when it gets dark (which in October is quite early) due to people loitering about. The streets are dirty and smell. There aren't any nice little places to go for food nearby. If you are returning in the evening from the metro (or heading to it), be warned that there a lot of people selling (most likely) fake designer items and foods surrounding the entrance to/exit of the station that you'll have to battle your way through. In our opinion, not an area really suitable for tourists. If you are looking for a hotel in short walking distance to Paris centre, this is not the hotel for you. We walked in the first day and it took us around 45 minutes (possibly longer) to get there. However it's only about 15 on the underground. We spent an awful lot of our 3 days on the tube getting around. I would like to note that the staff here are very friendly and we had no problems with cleanliness or housekeeping.

    Me and my fiancé have just got back after staying at this hotel. The staff are lovely, friendly and will got out of there way to help you, also the hotel is very clean and tidy and I didn't have a bad point about the hotel itself. The only thing that lets it down is the area! We made sure we got a taxi to the door if it was later than midnight but as we only slept in the hotel and we were out from 7am till midnight every day this hotel was perfect for us. If your looking to be spending a lot of time in the hotel I wouldn't stay here simply for the area but if your like me and my fiancé and want to visit places then its good with 3 metro stations very close by and the Gare du Nord train station and lots of little supermarket shops near by. We had a lovely stay here !

    « One of the worst experience ever »

    We booked this place on because on Tripadvisory most of the people said it was very good. Let me tell you the honest truth about this place. The hotel supposedly 4 star, which is the most ridiculous overstatement. The only thing that is good in this hotel is the shower and that it is clean. The room is boiling hot, the airconditionon game does not work, if you want "fresh" air once you open the window the load street noise gets amplified in the room even on the 4th floor. The wifi is a joke, we tested the speed and it was 0.8mp/s. Basically nothing loads or if they do it takes a day. Oh and the bed is hard as a rock, so if you plan to come for a romantic and relaxing getaway to Paris do not even consider this place. The hotel is in an area that doesn't make you feel like you are in Paris. It is scary, sketchy and the streets are filthy. There are suspicious men standing and sitting on both side of the streets so for women it is recommended walking in groups or with a male companion. People constantly try to sell you something. There is not any decent places to eat around here. It is quite a walk to find anything acceptable. One positive, there is a metro stop basically next door for one to escape the area. Sacre Coure is overrated because when we were here it was so filthy: trash everywhere and human urine smell. I guess you can take a good photo of Paris from the top of the hill. Our star hotel rating for the is max. 2stars. If you are looking for a budget getaway in Paris there are much better deals than this hotel. In better areas with better facilities. We give this place a one out of 5 star because it is clean and the shower and sink is nice. Hope this review will keep the way too high ratings for this place closer to reality and help you to make the best decision.

    « A nice little hotel »

    We really enjoyed our stay here- we had a cute little room and the staff were really friendly. I would have given it four stars but the breakfast was what I would have expected if it was breakfast included, not €12 (I think?) each- it was quite basic and hotel breakfasts are always my favourite part of the holiday so I was a bit disappointed. And to all the comments about it being in a 'dangerous' area- it's by the African quarter, if you're saying that's dangerous and frightening that's slightly racist and inward-looking... We had no problems (we were two women) and really enjoyed the bright colours and markets etc.

    « Great Service despite No Air Conditioning »

    I was traveling to France by myself for a two week vacation - starting and ending in Paris. I arranged to stay in this hotel and while the hotel itself was clean, safe, and easily accessible via the metro, there were a few glitches. One, when you come off the metro, during certain times of the day, you are literally dropped into an African marketplace. There is haggling, shouting, the shoving of products in your face. It's not for the faint of heart - especially if you are not an experienced traveler. Also, during the second part of my stay at the hotel, the air conditioner went out. Although the poor front desk person was getting phone call after phone call and complaint after complaint from everyone in the hotel, he didn't have the ability to fix it and because he was stuck at the front desk by himself for the rest of the night, didn't seem to have the ability to even go out and find someone to fix it. I felt very sorry for him. If you need a reasonably priced hotel, this is worth a look. Just know you may face some challenges, such as the ones described.

    « Ideal »

    Great hotel, in an almost perfect location for us. Dinner in place du tertre most evenings and a short stroll home. The two rooms we had were small, but adequate for the time actually spent in them, and they were spotlessly clean. Breakfast was good, but again, the area to eat in was very small so was cramped when a few people were all in there together. Lovely staff, would recommend and would return if and when in Paris again.

    « Great value hotel! »

    Highly recommend this hotel--Easy access and best value--The rooms are very clean--I stayed in this hotel for 10 nights--The staff was very helpful and friendly--My only concern was the AC which did't work properly at times!

    « Great Service »

    The gentleman at Reception was very helpful when we walked in off the street during the noon hour in mid-August with an emergency. He took the time to be sympathetic and point us to resources to solve our emergency.

    « Horrendous location , bad rooms, rude staff »

    We recently stayed at this hotel for four nights. Unfortunately we paid in advance for our stay. A filthy and dangerous area filled with undesirable characters openly selling drugs near the metro station which forces one to walk past them accompanied by menacing looks as you progress down the street. The staff refused to move us to the other best Western monmatre hotel even though we had ascertained that there was space available. We were charged for double room sizes even though our room was the tiny regular size. Which we knew for certain as some others in our party had much more spacious rooms yet paid the same. This too was disregarded by the rude staff and no refund was offered. By far the worst hotel that I have ever stayed in in all my years of travelling.

    « Not a good choice »

    I chose this hotel in Paris because I wanted to be in the 18th Arondissement, close to Monmartre, the Basilica and Pigalle but I found that though the hotel was advertised to be a three star property, it lacked some basic amenities--they did not change the towels everyday, nor clean the rooms thoroughly each day. On coming back from a walk around the city we found that many waste papers and empty bottles were strewn around the room. There were problems with the air-conditioning, the supply of hot water and one day there was no water in the toilet! However, the manager and other staff at the reception tried their best to help out the guests by providing bottled water, giving prior notice etc. The breakfast at 10 Euro per person was a bit too high though there were many cheap eateries and a Carefour market next door. The location is good with very good Metro connections to most places of interest and the two main railway stations Paris East and Paris North with direct connection to airport. The area is dominated by coloured people but they never cause any hindrance to others. I would specially like to mention the helpfulness of Vincent who was at the reception when we checked in and also when we finally checked out with our stored baggage which the hotel kep free of cost when we traveled to Luxembourg for three days.

    « Lovely hotel »

    Stayed here with my boyfriend on a city break for his Birthday. The hotel itself is great, the rooms are spotless and exactly what you need for a base in the city. The area is a little rough in parts but we did not experience any problems at all. The hotel is conveniently situated close to the metro station which is extremely easy to navigate around Paris. The hotel staff are so friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Wouldn't hesitate to return again.

    « Nice hotel, area not so nice »

    Clean pleasant small room. Staff seemed pleasant and helpful. Area not so nice and a good 15min walk to Sacre Cour. Aircon seemed to not be very effective. All that said for around £60 in Paris at height of summer, not really so bad.

    « Very nice »

    We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. It's situated near Port de Clignancourt, last stop of metro line 4. Comfortable rooms, kind staff. Metro station is not far from the hotel. Clean rooms. The hotel is situated in a quite street and you can find supermarkets and other shops very close.

    « Good if you get the internet pricing »

    I got a great price for this hotel online, through the BW website (about $100/night instead of the 300 euros advertised at the front desk). It's a 10-15 minutes walk from Sacre Coeur/Montmartre, so the location is great. The closest metro station (Chateau Rouge) is iffy, but you can't tell from the hotel, it's almost like two different worlds. At that station, people did help me carry my suitcase getting there and going back, but it's very crowded with street merchants and customers which can be a bit overwhelming. The room was very nice, clean, bright and although not very spacious, still comfortable. The bathroom was actually quite big. Breakfast was great; large spread of quality French food (pastries, bread, cheese) and also more international foods like eggs, yogurt and cereal.

    « Nice hotel, friendly reception, nice buffet breakfast. »

    Nice hotel, stayed 3 nights, as others have said area a little shady, but we enjoyed it. Some lovely bars, handy for metro. Loads of North african eateries and a michelin star restaurant close by. Fantastic experience. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Air con failed once as did lift. But both repaired by the next time we came to use,

    « Helpful Reception but poor location »

    Reception was always helpful. Hotel and room clean. Breakfast good. But room rather small. Second night air-conditioning failed. Apology received but made for a very hot night. Location is not the best. Too many drunks on the street in front of hotel. This is really a 3 star hotel. Not 4.

    « Paris Visit »

    My wife and I visited Paris for a short break recently, staying at the Best Western Montmartre Sacre-Coeur hotel. It proved to be an excellent choice being close to everything we wished to explore in Montmartre, and within an easy Metro journey to Central Paris. It is very easy to reach from the CDG airport via RER and the Metro. This hotel is very good and friendly. We chose it because we wished to stay in Montmartre and we had enjoyed visits in Best Western hotels in Scotland.

    « Be aware »

    I will keep this simple, the area the hotel in is very rough and even the locals advised us not to go out at night. Drug use was observed around the area of the hotel. In addition to this the rooms are very small in the hotel. The staff are really friendly and helpful though.

    « Nice time in Paris »

    We had 5 in our party with children and adults. Our time in this hotel was warm and cozy. Easy to get to the Metro, grocery store near by. Small lobby, but nice living room and excellent breakfast for $.

    « Short break »

    Stayed here for a long weekend. We were very pleased with the hotel - value for money,clean, comfortable, close to a metro and to Sacre Coeur. The area around the hotel is not very pleasant, but there are some nice restaurants near Sacre Coeur and the city is only a short ride away.

    « Ok for price paid »

    Not four star but comfortable enough. Rooms very small and very noisy being on a main street OK for those used to a large city. Breakfast good quality and comfortable room. Staff are very obliging and well mannered
