Good budget hotel close to the Sacrè Coeur
For a 1 star hotel, this hotel was much better than I expected. The area borders Pigalle, the red light area famous for the Moulin Rouge. Some may describe the area as "seedy", whereas I would describe it as "atmospheric"! I and my two teenage children walked out in the evenings and at no point felt threatened or uncomfortable. It's a short walk to the Sacrè Coeur and Montmartre, and the Barbès-Rochechouart Metro station is right opposite which takes you straight into the City centre or the connecting RER train to Euro Disney.
The hotel staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, especially Hércule the dog! We had a three bed room on the top floor which was 67 steps, but the room was absolutely fine with a good en suite shower room. I'm not sure I'd have so keen to use one of the shared loos though so maybe request an ensuite if you wouldn't be keen either.
All in all, great value for money in a really handy location and I would stay again.
