Hotels in Montmartre

photo

ABOVE: The Timhotel Montmartre has the loveliest setting of any hotel in the quarter, but its rates are surprisingly reasonable.

Montmartre, to most tourists, is a place to play--but not to stay. And that's a shame, for several reasons:

  • The neighborhood of Amelie is especially charming after daytrippers have climbed onto their tour buses and left the former village's winding, hilly streets to residents and hotel guests.

  • For Eurostar and other train passengers arriving at the Gare de Nord, Montmartre is within easy walking distance or a couple of Métro stops away. It's also handy to Charles de Gaulle Airport via RER Line B.

  • Montmartre is served by several different Métro lines. For example, you can board line 4 at Château Rouge and get off about 15 minutes later at Cité (Nôtre-Dame Cathedral) or St-Michel (Latin Quarter), or you can hop on line 2 at Anvers or Pigalle for a quick trip to the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysée.

In our opinion, the question isn't whether to stay in Montmartre, but where to stay. For a true Montmartre experience, you don't want to be on a traffic-jammed boulevard or a neighborhood that merely borders on Montmartre. And unless you're in Paris with a peepshow tour, you'll probably want to avoid a hotel amid the fleshpots of Pigalle.

To help you avoid disappointment, we've put together a collection of hotels represented by our booking partner, Venere. All of these hotels are located on pleasant and attractive streets within Montmartre. These aren't the only places to stay in Montmartre, but--if you choose from our listings--you can be sure that your hotel won't be on a major avenue, next to a strip joint, or overrun by mass-market tour groups. And because Venere is a consolidator that negotiates the best possible rates with hotel owners, you're likely to save money by using our hotel links.

Bonus: We've also included tips on renting a vacation apartment in Montmartre, which can be cheaper than staying in a hotel if you're in Paris for more than a few days.

If you live outside the EU, a tax-free Renault or Peugeot tourist lease can be cheaper than renting. Minimum driver age is 18, there' s no upper age limit, and rates include insurance.
