"Unique hotel in ideal location "


Excellent stay. Perfect location for walking around the city and fantastic restaurants/wine bars nearby. staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Very clean and nicely decorated - did not feel corporate

"Clean and well located hotel"


The hotel is well located few yards from major attractions; cafes, bars, restaurants etc... rooms are well cleaned and prepared. This said rooms are little small, probably one the smallest room I stayed at. The beds are comfy as well. I would recommend this hotel if you can find an offer online.



Vacanza in famiglia da 28/08/18 a 02/09/18 ottima posizione,vicino fermata metro Blanche(M2) ed Abbesses(M12) Camera confortevole, pulita,buona colazione, personale molto gentile. Holiday with family, very good position, near metro, very confortable room for 3 persons, delicious breakfast.Also the staff was very nice and with a little attention to the their "little guests",thanks again for a gift. And i forget to say, after a walking all the day it is great to return in hotel and find in the hall a cold thé and cake, really I suggest this hotel for family. Fam. Larocca, Italy.

"Lovely quirky clean & bright hotel"


Recently renovated - very clean and airy spaces. Reception staff were friendly. The Nespresso machine in the rooms was a nice touch. Rooms, as usual with Paris, not huge - but perfectly fine. Great location.

"Wonderful accommodation in Montmartre"


This hotel exceeds expectations. It is in a very busy and touristy area but located on a quiet street that leaves you still only steps away from restaurants and cafes. It is the perfect place to stay for families or otherwise. We had five rooms which including two sets of connected rooms and a single. The connected rooms for families has great space (for Paris it is super specious!) and are bright and comfortable. The single room, while smaller, is still comfortable. The service was excellent. We didn't have the breakfast because there are multiple cafes down the street to have breakfast but I did take a peak at it and it seemed like good value for what they had. Highly recommend!

Our connected rooms are made for families like you and it is such a reward to read that you had such a wonderful time all together !

"Fantastic stay, exceeded expectations"


We had a fantastic time, the location is awesome and makes you feel like you are in the real Paris from the moment you open the front door. The hotel is beautifully furnished and in great condition, the theme of the hotel giving you the vibe of the history of the area through a specific person. We had two kids and two connecting rooms, this worked well for us, the rooms are smaller than perhaps some are used to but that is part of the charm of the building, the area and the city. Loved it.

"4 nite stay in Aug"


We stayed for 4 nites had booked 3 rooms, 1 triple and 2 doubles. Rooms in general very small (one of the doubles nr 20 should be avoided it's even smaller) but nicely decorated paying homage to Marcel Aymeè. Toilet is tiny and indeed very uncomfortable for bigger people. Looks like it's a recently refurbished hotel. It's very close to Montmartre only 8mins but note it's uphill...Breakfast with quite small selection, just continental. Big minus that there is no fridge in the room and we had to cope with 35+ degrees every day...thankfully hotel staff was quite kind to fill up glasses with ice cubes every day so we could drink chilled water...Aircon works very well in the rooms.

Dear Madam, Sir, We do thank you for sharing your thoughts after your stay at the Hotel Litteraire Marcel Aymé. I am delighted that the décor was to your taste. Indeed, each floor is related to the French writer, from his novels titles to the characters he created and even dedicated to his closest friends. Our rooms are liked for their furnitures and décor and do offer different sizes. I am sorry that you found yours too small. Our buffet breakfast offers a wide range of hot and cold dishes to suit every taste but we are always willing to improve it if you think that something was missing. The hotel is located right in the centre of the historical part of Montmartre which is well-known for its unique cultural and artistic atmosphere. We hope that you had the chance to visit the Basilica Sacré Coeur, which is the spot you cannot miss while stating with us. We do hope to welcome you back for another Parisian stay in the near future. Sincerely yours. Mathieu PREVOT General Manager Hôtel Littéraire Marcel Aymé 4* +33 1 42 55 05 06

"Not as great as the reviews make you believe"


The location is nice if you want to be next to bars and restaurants. The problem was that it is on the hill, every time we returned to the hotel we had to go up the hill, even from the nearest metro if was up hill. We were there for 5 nights. The first night we got room no 2, be advised, do not get this room. They call it an apparment because it has a mini kitchen which is very nice, the room itself is tiny and it is at the level of the street, you cannot open the window because it is right on the pavement. At 7:00 in the morning you cannot sleep because it is like sleeping in the middle of the road, very noisy. After the first night we complained and they were very nice and moved us to a room on the third floor. This room was great. But there are no mini fridge in any of the regular rooms. On our last day in the hotel after 4 nights, when we where going outside to the city, the receptionist which was not there on any of the other nights insisted we would leave the room key with him even though we didn't want to and was not asked that before. He insisted this is the hotel policy, we grudgely compiled. When we returned that evening there was a female receptionist we never seen before, we told her our room number and she gave us the key, not even asking for our names, she would have given it to anybody who would have asked. One day we run out of toilet paper, the cleaning lady did not replace it. When we called the reception to ask for toilet paper and they told us to go down and get it. I would expect a hotel with 4 stars to bring toilet paper to the room. On our third night we bought a large bottle of soda and left it at the reception to put in the kitchen's fridge, the guy was nice and he labeled the bottle with our room number, in the morning when we tried to retrieve the bottle it was not in the fridge, it was set on the floor next to the fridge.

Dear Madam, Dear sir, Thank you for choosing us for this 5-night stay in the heart of Montmartre. The area is known for its famous hill which offers an exceptional vantage point on Paris when you arrive at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. The streets are hilly and this is the very charm of the neighbourhood! However, public transport allows you to travel the majority of the area without getting too tired. We have assigned to your request one of our apartments with their independent entrance and everything necessary to be autonomous during your stay (fridge, kitchenette, kitchen, safe, WiFi, air conditioning, etc.). I myself have slept within this apartment which is quite functional and soundproof so it amazes me that you have been so inconvenienced. Sometimes it is possible to perceive the noise of the cobblestones, but is it not an authentic Parisian experience? I'm sorry if our procedures surprised you. We actually keep all the keys at the reception to avoid losing them during your walks. It is also a way for us to know which clients are in the establishment or not in the event of a fire drill, for example. Exceptionally, we agreed to keep your bottle in the fridge. It stayed cool throughout the night, but in the early morning we had to remove it in order to receive our deliveries and start the breakfast service. That's why it was cooler when you recovered it in the morning. The whole team is dedicated to your daily comfort. We hope you enjoyed all these little touches and you will come back to enjoy a new literary break. Mathieu PREVOT General Manager Hôtel Littéraire Marcel Aymé 4* +33 1 42 55 05 06



Our room was beautiful, fresh refurbished with a balconette, brand new bathroom and everything that we could possibly have needed. The staff at reception were extremely helpful and the friendliest people we met during our entire time in Paris. We found the location perfect as we were away from the CBD but it was easily accessed by public transport. It is an easy walk to the Moulin Rouge, which is lovely to see at night time and Montmartre is a beautiful little walk away. With each room having its own story from the author Marcel Aymes dedicated to it and the story avaliable for you to read, it just made it that little bit more special.

Mathieu P, Directeur général at Best Western Plus Hotel Litteraire Marcel Ayme, responded to this review
Dear Madam, Dear Sir It is with great pleasure that I read your beautiful opinion, thank you to call us "Perfect". You are right: we have themed the entire establishment on the works of Marcel Aymé. Each floor has been dedicated to a different theme and offers a unique universe to our guests. We invite you to dive into one of the 500 books in our multilingual library. This will be an opportunity for you to (re) discover the works of this writer after a long day of walking? Your compliment on the helpfulness of our staff makes us particularly happy and I will pass it on to all the teams. We make sure that our guests feel welcomed and accompanied at best every day. For example, a sweet break awaits you every afternoon at two steps from the reception to feast on the most greedy of you. The whole team will be happy to see you again if you come back to enjoy a Parisian stay. Mathieu PREVOT General Manager Hôtel Littéraire Marcel Aymé 4* +33 1 42 55 05 06

"Nice hotel but some strange ways/omissions"


Just back fro 3 nights in this hotel. Recently renovated so very clean. A few good points and bad points to follow......rooms are decorated paying homage to various artists in this boutique hotel...... Montmarte "village" with great charm, very clean, the best air con. we've ever found and we travel widely including the USA and the Far East, daily maid service, friendly staff, coffee and tea facilities at the start, very comfy beds to rival any cruise ship, "a slice of cake available.....during the day", safe provided, 4 little choux pastries supplied to guests on arrival, laminate floor with bedside carpet runners, some newspapers in reception, electronic room locks, great double glazing, 5 minutes walk to Abbess metro (use the elevator), Sacre Coeur 5 minutes away with great Paris views..... Bad points.....NO ICE, in the hotel at all, our room had 2 designer office chairs and no armchair/settee, no cupboard to store clothes on shelves in thin wardrobe, no glasses but one materialised for a glass of wine as only plastic/kids style containers, tea, coffee and milk not replenished after 1st day, some tea stains not cleaned bedside cupboard, there was supposed to be an "honour bar" as there is no conventional bar.....this did not exist, no "nibbles" at reception as stated,a phone call to the hotel enquiring about a shuttle before we booked said there was none, but one was organised when we were leaving (?).....38 Euro to CDG, taxi from CDG is crazy 70 Euro!!!, breakfast is 16 Euro each (not used) and no other meals available so we were told but many restaurants 100 meters away, rolls etc frozen in freezer not fresh (?), tiny lavatory area......I cant see how anyone "on the large size" would fit, staff seemed to be all agency so not familiar with the hotel services, 1 English channel out of 30 is CNN,

Mathieu P, Directeur général at Best Western Plus Hotel Litteraire Marcel Ayme, responded to this review
Dear Madam, Dear Sir, You have quite understood what makes the soul of our establishment. We have dedicated it to a famous author of the Butte de Montmartre: Marcel Aymé. Like you, he surveyed the streets of Paris to marvel at monuments such as the Sacred Heart. We offer our guests the pleasure of a few pastries or cakes during the afternoon at the reception to awaken your child's soul. I regret however that we did not appreciate the decoration and the clean equipments of our rooms. Know that they are all unique and invite everyone to delve into the universe of our dear writer. On less solicitation, we would not hesitate to introduce you to a different room. The breakfast room is transformed as the day progresses into a screening room and a Honesty Bar. It opens every evening from 5pm to 10pm and allows everyone to feel at home: you just have to serve yourself and enjoy a relaxing and comfortable place to enjoy a drink. We offer our customers a taxi to go to the different places of the capital. Taxi drivers are dependent on the sometimes dense traffic of Paris and maybe that's what influenced the price of your ride. However, all the staff are well acquainted with all the hotel services and it amazes me that you may have perceived a lack of understanding on their part. I am at your disposal if you would like to discuss it more extensively. In Montmartre or elsewhere, a thousand things are still to be discovered, you now know where to stay when you come to Paris.

"Perfect location"


Great hotel located in the heart of Montmartre. We stayed for 4 nights and were glad we did. Close to the Metro, lots of cafes, Sacre-Coeur, Chat Noir, Moulin Rouge, Laupin Agile, to name a few landmarks. Balcony overlooks Rue Tholozé but very little sound when the window was closed. Easy walk to and from Metro (Blue line 2 - Blanche), for most people (wheel chair, walker, etc., would be very tricky). Nice breakfast hosted by a wonderful young man (manager/host), who was more than happy to chat in both English and French. He gave us a great recommendation for the Gustav Klimt exhibition (which was amazing), and was without a doubt one of the nicest people you could meet on one's travels. Wifi is less than brilliant in the room, and the prices very steep for a beer in the honour bar, but those problems were easily solved by leaving the hotel and going in just about any direction more than 30 steps. Room was spotless, sheets and pillows everything you could hope for. There is both elevator and stairs, so access is good. Take some time to learn about Marcel Amey before you go as he is an interesting character, and then go and see the statue just up the street. All in all, great experience!

"More than expectations! 4.5/5"


I stayed at Best Western Plus Hôtel Littéraire Marcel Aymé for one night and it met more than my expectations. Pros: -very clean,spacious and comfortable room -very clean and spacious bathroom -very good location , 5 min walking distance to metro stations(Blanche,Abbesses) Highly recommendable

"Perfect location and very good price "


We booked a room via but the booking was cancelled twice. After contacting the hotel by phone a couple of times I ended up booking directly with them. Staff were polite and professional and they all spoke perfect English. The room was small but had all we needed for a 4 nights stay, It was clean and the bed was comfortable. Toiletries only comprised of soap and shower cap but to be fair I Didn t ask if they had shampoo, conditioner,toothbrush and toothpaste. The hotel is a bit up the hill from moulins rouge but totally doable even if you are 8.5 months pregnant like me! The area is really lovely with easy access to the centre and all the tourist attractions. We would definitely stay there again.

"Fab first visit to Paris!"


We arrived at the hotel on 2.4.18 for a 3 night stay. Upon arrival there was a room available (number 15 on the first floor) however when we arrived it was 2 single beds. We ended up being that busy on our trip I never bothered asking for a room with a double and the view was a busy street in Paris just like I'd imagined. Really impressed with the fresh modern decor of the hotel and how it had a real new and clean feel to it! Room had a large flat screen Samsung TV which allowed for screen mirroring which worked great in watching series in the evening via my Nerflix account. The rooms also have a Nespresso coffee machine however I never used this and generally got coffee from machine in the dining room in the morning. We never received any toiletries until the second day however I have no doubt if I'd have asked it would have been provided. There was one member of staff in the evening who generally was pleasant but on 2 occasions was preoccupied and found he was not the most accommodating. However I found the staff to generally be friendly and welcoming. I would 100 % stay here again and would recommend this hotel to friends and family. Attached are some photos!!
