Historical Traveller Reviews of Interhotel Roma Sacre Coeur Hotel

Nice but noisy

from Madita
We stayed there in October and the place is very nicely located, romantic view from the window. My cmplaint is, having had a room on the first floor, that you could here about everything from the front desk and the maids. That was not so nice.
Breakfast was okay and I would have given 4 points, if it had not been that noisy.

A great place to stay!

My husband, daughter and I visited Paris from Dec. 3-11, 2004.
I have visited Paris four times in the last 10 years, and I feel that I finally got it right by staying at the Hotel Roma Sacre Coeur. It was part of our VERY inexpensive France Vacations package. If you need fancy cookie-cutter style accomodations, this is not the place for you. Why leave America if you'll be upset if things aren't exactly the way they are at home? However, if you want basic, clean, charming, comfortable accomodations for a great price this is what you are looking for. Great neighborhood. Bank with an ATM right next to the hotel. Good restaurant (Chez Ginette) right downstairs. Very close to the Metro, and on a major route that makes it easy to transfer anywhere. Good restaurants and grocery stores nearby. The shower was a bit of an adventure, but not a big deal. Our triple room was pretty cramped, but we don't stay in the room much except to sleep anyway. The towels were small, but I always travel with a big towel anyway so it was not a problem. All of the good reviews on this hotel are correct, and the bad ones are mean-spirited and make me think that the people who wrote them are not happy unless they can be unhappy about something. Another note: I got sick (bronchitis) while I was on the trip--the clerk at the front desk called the medical service (I think it's called Medical SOS--or something like that.) A doctor was in my room within 30 minutes--he gave me an examination and a prescription, which I filled right across the street. The visit was 70 Euros--I gave myself a half a day for the antibiotics to kick in and I was off and running again. We had a great time, and I will DEFINITELY stay at Roma Sacre Coeur again. All of you picky Ramada Inn-types, stay away! It's not the Ritz, but if you can afford the Ritz, what are you doing reading Trip Advisor reviews?

good experience overall...3.5 stars

My wife and I decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary this year in Paris for a week from Oct 23-30, 2004. We found a great deal on TravelZoo over the summer and booked it immediately. We didn't research many hotels and just figured we would deal with whatever we were given.

My first impression of The Roma Sacre Coeur was how small it was. It's cozy but not too bad. The hotel has 7 floors total and we were lucky enough to get the top room on the northern corner with a huge patio. We peeked into some of the other rooms and noticed they were much more cramped than our room. The elevator is small and slow. As a result, we always took the stairs down and sometimes up.

Our room was small but had a bathroom nearly equal to the area where the bed/tv/closet was. Only turned on tv once, it worked fine. The bed was lumpy and we didn't get very good rest. Luckily, we brought our own pillows. The walls were painted bright, contrasting colors with flowers in the hallways. It was cute. The room was always clean.

The weather was very mild (65-70°F) for late October and it only rained once. We never had to use the air conditioner or heater. In-room safe didn't work so we just stashed any valuables. No big deal.

The toilet had a slow leak and would make funny noises about every hour throughout the night. Not a problem for a heavy sleeper like myself. The shower was a bit tight for two people but there was plenty of hot water.

We tripped the circuit breaker twice when trying to use the hair dryer that came with the room. We talked to the front desk clerk and he fixed it without any fuss. You can't use any other room lights while using the hair dryer.

The included breakfast is comprised of orange juice, your choice of coffee or hot chocolate, a generous basket of bread, chocolate-filled and plain croissants, fruit spread and cheese. The breakfast was fantastic and we never missed it. We figured that was at least a 20 Euro value everyday.

The location is excellent. Just two sets of stairs above the Lamarck-Caulaincourt metro stop, because of this we rode the metro nearly 20 round-trips over the week. Very convenient. The neighborhood is touristy but also filled with many residential apartments. Most of the shops around the hotel were pricey. We always waited until we found a Monoprix to buy food and water. There was an excellent bakery just down the hill behind the hotel a couple blocks.

The front desk staff all understood and spoke (limited) English. Overall, a good value and recommened for its great location and complimentary breakfast.

I have to go back!

I was there this past summer and stayed for six nights. I thought the hotel was charming and the staff was wonderful. While I was there I was terribly sick and they were very accommodating when I needed my breakfast sent up to me by my roommate. I stayed on the 6th floor. Although it was a little small, it was clean, however, the last two nights I stayed in another room on the 6th floor and it was more spacious and modern. That's the room I will be requestingwhen I return. Truly, the Roma Sacre Coeur made my vacation more pleasant than I expected.

Charming Staff Outweighed Shabby Accommodations

from kitcat706
Accommodations here were pretty shabby---what you would expect for a 2-star hotel, but the charming staff made up for what the hotel physically lacked. We stayed on the 2nd floor and it seemed as if it was under renovation - the carpet was filthy and some dirty linens and towels were strewn near our door, which were probably left by other hotel guests. Aside from the dirty carpet and bedspread, the rest of our room was seemingly clean--tile, shower, sink, loo, etc...

Pros:
-Great customer service - They're always smiling and helpful.
-VERY close to Metro (Lamarck-Caulaincourt) (outside the hotel and 2 flights down) -
-Minibar - clear it out and go to the epicerie next door and fill it with cheaper snacks. Food is expensive. Save some money for nice dinners!
-Clean bathrooms
-Close to epiceries and ATMs
-Very close to Sacre Coeur
-Beds old but comfy

Cons:
-Shabby and in desperate need of Queer Eye
-Carpets pretty filthy
-Continental breakfast just okay

Tips:

-If you're hanging around the hotel, check out Froggie's. Stephane, the owner is really friendly. Tell him the Three Devils from Halloween said, "Hi!"

-Parlez vous francais? - If you've never been to France, make sure you try a little French - If you're hesistant, you can't go wrong with all the courtesies: bonjour, bonsoir, merci and pardon. I was a bit embarassed by the other American tourists speaking very loudly, and condescendingly to the server. "Jay Voodray Hot Chocolut." For goodness sake, there's a language barrier - they're not stupid or deaf!

-Make sure you take good care of your towels. They only give you one set for the duration of your stay. I suppose it's for the sake of conservation. I guess it's not bad if you think about it - who launders their towels everyday when at home?

-Bring a travel alarm clock - the ones here are ancient and do not work.

-Bring an inflatable pillow. If you have a room with a double bed, you'll have one bolster pillow to share.

-Wear rubber-soled shoes - lots of stairs...and cobblestone.

Have a nice stay at Roma Sacre Coeur! Hope this was helpful!

Loved the location

from BlueRabbit8
This little hotel is right above the Caulaincourt metro station making it very accessible. However you have to climb a flight of steps to get to the hotel from the metro. The rooms were nice and clean and it's pretty quiet, considering that there is a cafe on the ground floor of the hotel. The shower was working well. The lift is really tiny and can only take 3 persons. If you get a room with the window a the side of the building, you can see a wonderful view of the city with its sloping roads and the apartments that line them. There is also a grocery shop two doors away that opens till pretty late at night, a real plus in Paris where shops close early in the evening. It's also half hour walk to the Sacre-Coeur church.

superb

from moosehunter

Adorably Cute Paris Hotel

from Ai10
The Roma Sacre Coeur is a cozy and great hotel. It has everything you need for the price. The staff is super nice and friendly, the rooms were clean and from the hotel, it was easy access to all of Paris with the Metro station around the corner. I would most definately stay here again when I go to Paris. If you watch the movie Amelie, most of the movie is filmed in the areas of Montremarte so it gives you a feeling of what everything looks and feels like. Just an all around great area and fabulous hotel. A++++++++.

Nice hotel in a lovely neighbourhood

from A TripAdvisor Member
Roma Sacre Coeur is a small but nice hotel. The staff is very friendly and the staff at the frontdesk speak English. The metrostation is nextdoor. If you don’t want to take the stairs turn right, go up the road and go right again, the hotel is just around the corner. The rooms are small but the bathroom is a fair size compared to what I've seen before in other hotels. The breakfast is good too, french bread and croissants, tea, coffee or chocolat milk in really huge cups. It's clean and the windows are dubbleglass so you can't hear the noise on the street. The neighbourhood isn't that noisy but there is a popular restaurant (good food but a little expensive) next to the hotel that is open untill quite late. But that also livens up the neighbourhood. It's a lovely location to stay in, almost like staying in a small french village, with local stores, shops and restaurants. There are more restaurants to the right of the hotel and a supermarket. To the left are only a few, but they are cheaper like ‘au pied de la vigne’. Here you can also get a sandwich at a reasonable price. The market next door sells water at a good price. There is a postal office in front of the metrostation and a lot of cashmachines nearby. The one by the park is in English. If you like a more touristlike area, go up the road in front of the hotel and after 5 minutes you will reach Place du Tetre with all it's painters and many restaurants and giftshops. Don’t sit down at the first restaurant you see, it can be worth your while to look arround and compare the prices. More 3,50 euro’s isn’t uncommon but you do get a bottle instead of one glass. The Sacre Coeur is only 10 minutes away. It might be interesting to know that the metrostation next to the hotel was a location for the film 'Le fabuleux destin de Amelie Poulin' although in the film it's called Abesses. If you haven’t seen it, you really shood before you come to Montmartre. Be prepared for a lot of stairs in every metrostation, an elevator is a rarety. Fortunately there is one in the metrostation next to the hotel. Enjoy your stay!

Neighborhood

from A TripAdvisor Member
As frequent Paris vacationers, we were very pleased with this hotel and amazed at the incredible location. Believe me, our experience here (March 31-April 6, 2004) proved only the good reviews accurate. We found absolutely no basis for the negative reviews!The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was clean and neat (larger than some modern hotels we've seen in Paris), and the breakfasts were simple, but generous and tasty. It's located in a beautiful neighborhood with locals hanging out at the sidewalk cafe downstairs and at the several excellent restaurants close by (Le Sagittaire on Lamark!!) --- and it's not overrun with tourists.Right outside the hotel is the Lamark metro station - inside the station take the elevator and avoid the many stairs down to the train. From the hotel it's a 5 minute walk to Place de Tertre & Sacre Coeur. There's a market a couple doors away, and numerous cafes, bistros and brasseries within a block or two. We never had to go far for great French food and friendly service.The Roma Sacre Coeur was a nice retreat at the end of a tiring day of sight-seeing. We would certainly stay there again!Note: Please don't stay here expecting an American Ritz-Carlton and then write a bad review. The hard-working staff at this charming, pleasant hotel deserve better. And people who believe the misguided complaints will miss out on a quaint Paris hotel experience.

Top Local Tips for Paris

Getting around Paris If you are going to be in paris for 1-3 days a Paris Visite pass is great value for money! For around 13 Euros you can get the Metro, RER, buses and Sacre Coeur Funicular as much as you like! We really got our moneys worth!

Choosing hotels Choose a different accommodation than this one - bad choice. There are hundreds of better Paris hotels for about the same price and I'm sure we will be charged for not staying there for its lack of cleanliness which means we will end up paying twice as much for trying to economize. Perhaps there are some nicer rooms, but I certainly found the reception clerk's attitude about our problems incredibly unacceptable.

Bastille Day! We went to Paris for 4 days for Bastille Day which is on the 14th of July each year. It was a great experience, we seen the military parade and the french president's car, we seen the best fireworks ever and heard James Blunt singing all for free! But we got stuck in the metro! The Louvre Museum is free on this day but the queues for it are massive and there are lots of crowds everywhere around Paris, so get there early or you'll miss it all! Because there are so many people the metro is full and almost impossible to go on, so it requires a lot of walking on this day. Overall, it was great and we will definately go back on this date.
