Historical Traveller Reviews of Timhotel Montmartre Hotel

No Room

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have just returned from a weekend in Paris. We were supposed to stay at this hotel, but despite sending an e-mail 2 months ago asking about any problems with rooms ( the reply said there wasn't) when we arrived we were moved to another hotel. Fortunately this was lovely 4star hotel 5 minutes walk away called Hotel Terrass. This hotel was beautiful and a lovely time was had.
So I shall now write a review of this hotel instead.

Wonderful experience in a charming area.

from A TripAdvisor Member
Our stay at the Timhotel Montmartre was excellent. The staff was friendly and the property was at a cute little square called Place Emile Goudeau. The rooms were clean and adequately sized for us. Some may find them small, but we thought they were typically European sized. The best thing about the hotel is its location in Montmartre. So charming and so romantic. If you're an "Amelie" fan, Colignon's market is literally right around the corner... I will stay at the hotel again on my next trip to Paris and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Fabulous location

from roostorm
we have just arrived back from a stay at the Timhotel Montmartre, having a room on the 5th floor with a view of the Sacre Couer on one side and all of Paris on the other, waking up to an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower!
The staff were friendly and very helpful. Our room was spotlessly clean as was the small bathroom.

The location is just perfect, the grocer's from the film "Amelie" just a minute away. We had some fantastic meals in the area, every place we ate at had a friendly, lively atmosphere and some of the best value in Paris.

Can't wait to go back!

No Charm Here!!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We were also fooled by other visitors' reviews....this hotel was no where near quaint and/or charming. The hotel was dirty, hallways filled with bags of laudry, many unpleasant smells, and an elevator that took an hour to get to the 1st floor. If you are just looking for a cheap place to stay, with no parisian flare, this is your hotel. The only thing it had going for it was the close proximity to Montmartre. Visitors BEWARE!!

Fantastic area!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed in Paris, Montmartre for ten days in September. The hotel is beautifully located with small resturants and cafees nearby. In front of the hotel there where benches and old big trees. from there we got a nice view over the city. The room was really nice, but not big. We didn't order a room with view, but our room was in the the third floor so we had a view over Paris, lovely!!
There was a lot of noise from the resturants and every day from morning to the evening streetsmusician were playing. In the begining we found it irritating, but after a while we got used to the sounds... Very short walk to the metro, Abesses. And also short walk to Sacre couer. The room was clean, and got new towels every day from the roommaid. The staff was ok. The breakfast room was quite small-and you had to pay extra for breakfast-we recommend to buy your breakfast in the bakery beside the hotel-sit on the bench-look at people and eat a fantastic baguette!!!
Next time we are travelling to the beautiful Paris we want to stay at Timhotel-absolutely!!

Timhotel Montmartre was decent

from hunybuny8
Stayed at the Timhotel Montmartre Nov 23 - Nov 25, 2004. I was first put in a dingy room (#12 I think) next to the public toilet on the first floor. It had no TV and the floorboards creaked. I complained and was moved to room 214 which was a lot bigger and much more comfortable. It had both a full size and twin bed which were firm. It also had a TV. The bathroom was small and the toilet was too close to the sink which made getting on the seat tricky. The sliding doors of the standup shower didn't close completely and it was a bit high to climb into. The room faced a side street and I was awakened by the conversation of some late night partiers on the street below. I was also disturbed by the slamming of doors by my fellow guests. With that said, at $95US a night breakfast included via Orbitz.com, it was a good deal. The breakfast (asst. breads, pastries, cheeses, cereals, coffee, etc.) was decent and the hotel was ideally situated. The Abssesses Metro stop is right down the block. Take my advice and always take the lift to the street exit. I took the stairs once and it was exhausting! Sacre Cour was just a short walk and the area is great for shopping (Etam, my fav store has a discount shop there) and full of cafes/restaurants. It had a bohemian/artistic feel to it. The pics I took of the curvy cobblestone streets first thing in the morning are absolutely beautiful. I'm using one as my screensaver.

I’m not sure if I’d stay at the Timhotel again. I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it either. Maybe if I had paid extra for a room w/a view, my review would be better. Who knows? Paris is beautiful regardless and I smile when I think of everything I saw during my walks. I’m at my happiest when I’m strolling those beautiful streets just taking in the sights. There’s so much beauty all around. It’s a sensory overload.

really disappointed

from A TripAdvisor Member
I was so disappointed when I got to the Timhotel Montmartre only to be told that my room was not available due to the ongoing renovations and that I should have received a call to warn me that I was going to be put in another Timhotel. The location that was available was Opera, I didn;t want to be there as I had particularly chosen Montmartre for several reasons including the lively neighbourly feel and good bars/restaurants. We were sent to another hotel nearby which frankly looked like a set from the film 'Trainspotting' with no TV - a small ancient saggy bed covered with chintzy bedspread and stinking of cigarettes.

The receptionist was surly and shouted at us for not being grateful enough for her efforts! and we eventually booked into a really nice hotel nearby. The weekend was fantastic - but Timhotel were really unhelpful and shambolic.


from A TripAdvisor Member
Having read positive reviews, we booked a room at the Timhotel Montmartre two months in advance. it sounded great - lovely area, great views, and extremely affordable. However, when we arrived at the hotel, the receptionist told us that they had sent us an email 'about a week before' saying that due to unfinished renovation work we could not stay at the hotel but we 'didn't have to worry' as they would pay for a taxi to take us to another Timhotel 'which was very near'. When we said we would find another hotel in the area, she insisted that they were 'all full'.
After getting over our disappointment, we were taken to the other hotel to find that it was smack bang in the middle of the Boulevard de Clichy. For those of you that don't know, it's a very busy thoroughfare most noticeable for its neon lights and strings of sex shops. Worse was to follow - we were given the keys to our room and found we had a dirty, pokey little room overlooking the main road. One wall had evidently been attacked by someone's boots - there was a big crack in the plaster where someone had been kicking it.
At this point we had had enough. We left our bags in the room, went back to Montmartre and found a room in the first hotel we went into - a nice Korean-run hotel, the Hotel de Moulin. It was 30 euros a night cheaper, the room was cleaner and bigger and the hotel itself was situated in a quiet backstreet just off Rue Abesses. We took great pleasure in going back to the Timhotel, grabbing our bags and tossing the keys back to the surprised manager.
We would urge extreme caution booking over the internet with Tim after this experience. The email they talked about never arrived and they never bothered to phone us (they had all our contact details). We had a great weekend in Paris, but no thanks at all to Timhotel.

Charming hotel, great location and view

from A TripAdvisor Member
Wonderful location overlooking a quiet square with several restaurants, bar/cafés and a boulangerie right next door. Clean neat rooms, great view of the top of Sacre-Coeur from the 4th floor with a small balcony you can walk out on and admire a morning view and horizon to sigh for. Helpful multilingual staff, no nonsense hotel. Great for the solo traveler or for the romantic getaway (though be prepared to hear anyone or be heard by anyone in the hallway). Get that quirky experience at the Le Soleil Gourmand restaurant or at the marche/market that was featured in "Amelie", explore the rest of Paris, and return at night. Just up the hill and round the corner from the Abesses metro station. Felt safe yet removed enough from the touristy din of the street one block down. Booked this stay on Expedia and because of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Heartily recommend this place for anyone looking for a place to launch that Paris adventure.

Great little spot!

from EFB
Stayed here in September, 2004. This hotel is in the perfect spot. Our room overlooked a square filled with trees. There were some late night revelers in the square so some might consider it a little noisy, but for us it just added to the ambience of our first night in Paris.
Our room was tiny, which is typical for Paris. However, it was clean and very tastefully decorated. The bathroom, although also tiny, was designed very efficiently and was extremely clean and modern. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, and did well with our broken French. We did not eat the hotel breakfast, as there was a patisserie literally one door down from the hotel. Also, the hotel is within a short walking distance to an area full of restaurants, cafes and stores, as well as the Sacre Couer. Highly recommended!

Top Local Tips for Paris

Paris Buses Don't be afraid to ride the bus. You use the same ticket as the metro; but you get a much more interesting ride. Just put your "billet" in the machine by the driver, then sit back and enjoy the view. It might take a little longer than the metro, but they are cleaner, less crowded, and provide a much better view.

general advice if you dont like hills and walking up them frequently dont go here.if you want paris pay extra and stay closer to central paris. metro not pleasent means of transport!! dont go here if you havent a french word in sight!!! go the effiel tour in early early am. not 11am like i did as you have to queue for hours. be prepared for con artists in various locations popular with tourists watch your wallet.

Free admitance to the Louvre every first sunday of the month. Leave very early to make sure you are first in line. The free admittance attrackts a great crowd and you could be up to an hour or more in line when you arrive late.
