Historical Traveller Reviews of Eden Montmartre Hotel
Small, friendly hotelfrom Citroenfamily1
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 moneyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
While we were there they were completing some building work in the reception area but it caused minimal disruption.
Cute neighborhood hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
No complaintsfrom jillhomeuk
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 dissapointingfrom cheshiredave
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!

Friendly, Clean, and Convenientfrom A TripAdvisor Member
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 basefrom Robbo23
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 26thfrom Maylee
Good for the pricefrom ggossard
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.
