I do not recommend this hotel to ANYONE, especially NOT to people on a tight budget. We had our passports and tickets stolen because the safe in our room was (unbeknownst to us!!) not properly installed, so the thieves were able to steal everything without having to open the safe. Furthermore, the room was NOT broken into but the thieves had a key to get in. This all looks like a
set-up to steal people's valuables. After the theft, we had to insist numerous times before the hotel informed the police. In fact, the people from the hotel treated us as if we had robbed someone, not as victims. Despite promises (reiterated many times by the hotel administration!!) we have still not received any compensation more than two months after the theft. THIS HOTEL IS A DIVE AND A TRAP!!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Eden Montmartre Hotel

Small, friendly hotel

from Citroenfamily1
We have just returned from a very pleasant five night stay in a triple room at this hotel. The room was quite small, with basic furnishings but three comfortable beds, a very nice bathroom, cupboard and desk with chairs. The price was a very reasonable £50 per night, booked through Expedia some months ago. One very small grumble was that the electrics in the hotel are obviously being upgraded and a couple of the wall plugs in our room (22) were hanging off the wall! It didn't cause us any problems but it might have been dangerous if our grandson had been a little younger.

The room we occupied was overlooking the main street and the hotel is situated in a busy, cosmopolitan area of the city. It was also extremely hot and humid when we visited and, unfortunately, there was no air - conditioning. This meant that we had to open the double glazed door to the small balcony and leave it open at night - it was fair to say that the traffic noise from outside was truly incredible! This wasn't a problem to myself or my family who have all been known to sleep through thunder storms and firework displays but it might be worth considering if you, or your family, are light sleepers; a room at the back of the hotel might be better for you. However, you would miss the very lively street scene, especially the one we had on Bastille Day!

The room was very clean, as was the bedding, and was maintained daily by the staff, who were, without exception, as friendly and helpful as they could be. They could speak much better English than I could French and seemed to take extra delight in helping our seven year old Grandson with his very basic French vocabulary. Have no worries if you have to return late from the city. The door is locked, but the night receptionist let us in one night at 1.30 am after a visit to the Eiffel tour and a meal with a cheery, welcoming smile.

Breakfast is taken in the foyer of the hotel and is a basic continental type with coffee and juice, croissants and bread buns and is very filling to start you off for the day. The room is cleaned whilst you are out and the beds made ready for your return. There is a wide selection of shops in the district and several interesting cafes with street tables nearby including one directly beneath part of the hotel. A pharmacy and bank with ATM lie just opposite across the street and a Chocalaterie is next door (although on the week we visited, we couldn't buy any to bring home - the heat would have turned the chocalate into mush!)

The Jules Joffrin Metro Station lies just a couple of hundred yards away and gives convenient access to both the city and the more outlying sites such as Versailles and Disneyland Europe. It is, by far, the most convenient integrated transport system that we have ever used and is generally very clean and feels safe, even at night. Paris itself is the most amazing place - cleaner than London, safer than Barcelona and, unlike Rome, virtually free from grafitti and the annoying beggars, handbag and trinket salesmen with which that city seems to be infested. You could spend a month visiting all the sites and still have more to see.

All in all, considering its very reasonable rates and convenient siting close to transport and shopping, I would recommend this hotel to anyone who doesn't come expecting the Ritz or tranquil peace or quiet; you won't find either of these - just a pleasant, friendly base from which to visit one of the truly great cities of the world.

A lovely hotel for the money

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Eden Monmartre for three nights at the beginning of June. We had two triple rooms between our party, which were clean and well decorated. The hotel was in a very good location, near to the metro, as well as bars, restaurants etc. I didn't notice any traffic noise at night, or for that matter I didn't find the walls that thin that I could hear our neighbours. I would definitely stay there again.

While we were there they were completing some building work in the reception area but it caused minimal disruption.

Cute neighborhood hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Room and bathroom were small -- we had a room for three -- but there was a small table with two chairs, and it was adequate. Good for the price. Staff was very helpful. There was a small lift to help with luggage. Great neighborhood -- one block from a street market where we bought fruit and could have bought a deli supper. It was my first trip to Paris, but my husband and daughter were return visitors. Breakfast was a croissant and a roll with juice and coffee/tea/chocolate. All of us would stay here again.

No complaints

from jillhomeuk
This hotel is convienient, but is on the small side. Our double room was tiny, but the bed was very comfortable, and although I have stayed in better, it was good value for money.

reakfast is served between 7a nd 11 am, and when I say served, I mean served. None of the buffet style breakfasts here. Unfortunately, there are only 6 or so tables betwen 26 rooms, so you may have to wait.

It has been mentioned in other reviews, but the friendliness of the staff can not be over stated. Without exception, they were lovely. Paris is a city where you don't want to spend ti9me in the room. Some rooms were bigger than ours, but we got a very cheap deal through Eurostar, so can't complain.

Slightly dissapointing

from cheshiredave
I booked this hotel after reading the good reviews, but have noticed a few worse ones appearing since then, with which I agree.

We did get a very good Expedia price, though. (I estimate about 50 English pounds / 70 Euros per night, for a room to fit 3 adults; and 3 breakfasts of coffee / large croissant / orange juice / bread roll and butter - fine for Paris!) Only about 6 tables for about 30 rooms, so you may have to wait, but you can take breakfast to your room, if you like.

The renovations mentioned by others seems to to be taking longer than the Cistine Chapel. Our room did NOT look like the Trip Advisor 'candid shot' - it was in worse condition, but clean. Beds were comfortable. Bed covers and curtains old but clean. Cream walls, a bit scuffed. Bathroom pretty good, but shower curtain old and scruffy; and 'quarter circle' shower tiny!

We were on the main street and it IS main and very noisy throughout the day and night. Double glazing helped, but not 100%, and you'd definitely need to leave windows open in summer. We were there either side of the Easter break - it got a little quieter after Easter. Ambulancesw, police and wedding aprties love to use their car horns day or night. I know it's all part of Parisian charm, but a 30-minute wedding chorus of car horns early on Saturday morning is a bit of a headache. Literally. I suspect that the family rooms (double bed and single bed, with another bed hidden under the single) are mainly to the front, but this is a guess.

SECURITY: NOT as Expedia says. We have had things stolen on a previous holiday, so wanted to leave our passports and money with Reception (Front Lobby in USA?). They were unwilling to do this, despite 3 trys, and at fiorst sadi that only 1 person had the key, and were on holiday. Later, they said the safe was too small to take our 3 passports and a cheque book-size leather folder.

Check-in: we arrived at about 6pm but the room was not ready. 40 mins later, we checked again. It had been made ready but no-one had told us. (We were sitting 2 metres from the receptionist at all times.)

Staff were very friendly, and we felt more relaxed here than at other small hotels, in this respect. Their English is not quite as good as the reviews make out - nor should it be - and we got by well in 'Franglais'.

Area: lots and lots of small shops round the back of the hotel - everything you'd need for bread, cakes, beer. Street market and mini-supermarket with cheap wine, beer, cheese etc. Rue Ordener was not the Maontmartre I expected - it's a bit further north of centre. I'd avsie stayijg near the Abbesses Metro stop for a better 'feel' of the central 'village' area. Rue ordener had more of a city street feel.
Restaurants are, believe it or not, cheaper in the Abbesses are - 3 courses for 15 Euros, and not as bad as the guide books make out.
Beer in a bar is very expensive - 25cl for 4 Euros; 50cl for 8 Euros. I believe standing and drinking at the bar is cheaper, but no holiday! Whether you sit inside or out seems to make no difference.
Hope this helps. My usual reveiws are more upbeat!

You get what you pay for

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel was bearable but you definitely get what you pay for. We booked through Expedia and paid $77 per night which was probably why we got a shabby room. The room was very small and borderline dirty. The furniture was old and resembles something you would find in a cheap second hand store. The walls were in need of a paint job and the bed was hard and lumpy. There was no comforter, just a knitted pink blanket complete with holes. The bathroom can barely fit one person and you can forget about trying to put any toiletries near the sink. It was a depressing room and we hated to have to go back for the evening. On a more positive note, the front desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful. They also spoke fluent English! It was very close to the Jules Joffrin metro which is convenient. My husband and I are frequent travelers and often stay in budget hotels. This is definitely the most disappointing room we have ever stayed in.

Friendly, Clean, and Convenient

from A TripAdvisor Member
We just came back from a great time in Paris. We stayed six nights at the Eden Hotel which was undergoing interior restoration for the second half of our stay. While the hotel was a bit noisy due to the paper thin walls the place was clean, the staff extremely friendly, and the location perfect.

The bathroom was larger than our Brooklyn bathroom!

Located just a minute or two from the Jules Joffrin metro station and a short walk to the Sacre Couer, the Hotel Eden is surrounded by several restaurants, markets, boulangeries, etc.

The metro runs so frequently (if we were only that lucky in NYC) that the distance from the heart of the city wasn't an issue.

The neighborhood was made up of mostly locals and everyone was very helpful and friendly.

I'd definitely stay here again.

Excellent base

from Robbo23
Excellent hotel, directly next door to Jules Joffrin Metro Station (which is very very handy) got back this afternoon (Feb21st-23rd)

Quite far from the Eiffel Tower but Metro is easy to navigate after you have used it a few times.

Hotel was very clean and pleasent, the guys at the front desk spoke fluent english and were very polite and extremely helpful.

Rooms are an average size but still very comfortable, the only thing I would pick up on is the walls are not very thick!!

The place was undergoing a paint job so did look a lot newer and nicer.

Would definately recommend.

Good luck with CDG airport (that's another story!!)
Feel free to email any questions..

Great Hotel! Jan 23 to 26th

from Maylee
I was there with my daughter and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel and for the price too! Room was spacious, clean and we felt safe the whole time we were there. I also think that we got a newly renovated room as the shower looks spanking new and big too! The reception area service was excellent and speaks english and very helpful! When we were there, there was some minor renovation going on but other than that, we have no problem at all. And yes, is only 5 mins walk from the metro!

Good for the price

from ggossard
Upsides close to the metro, cheap, great staff, close to sacre cour. Downsides loud (you know exactly what your neighbors are doing), furnishings are tired, neighborhood not the greatest to wander in (don't go north), you need to take the metro to get to the standard tourist spots. If your on a budget it's not a bad place to stay, definitetly better than a hostel for the youth set but if you have a similar priced option closer to the action I would take it.

Top Local Tips for Paris

toilet facilities Take advantage of any you may come across. They are few and far between and always use those provided in cafes as and when you buy food or drink, museums etc.

Metro Get a multi day travel card from a metro ticket office, saves a load in the long run, and can be used on the buses as well - the buses were excellent, and they say aloud the name of the stop.
