The 9 Best Montmartre Hotels – Paris On The Hill

Retaining the feeling of a hilltop village, Montmartre wears its heritage proudly. This former farming village was still surrounded by fields and vineyards only one hundred and fifty years ago. In the early 20th-century, it became well-known as the haunt of artists and writers like Picasso, Renoir, Van Gogh.

Today, it's a vibrant quartier somehow apart from the rest of Paris. Because of its unique nature, it's a fascinating place to set down roots for a week or so. Even better, hotel rates are sometimes slightly lower than in the rest of Paris, so there may be deals to be found. Here we choose the top hotels in Montmartre.

1. Le Terrass Hotel Montmartre

Le Terrass Hotel Montmartre

Set in a 19th-century hôtel particular (a special kind of French mansion) in the heart of Montmartre, this 4-star hotel has been popular with artists since 1911. It's sust a short walk to the Sacré-Coeur. Because Terrass Hotel Montmartre is high on the hill, you can actually see the Eiffel Tower, and the rest of Paris spread out below you, from the rooftop terrace or the seventh-floor restaurant.

The rooms are elegantly decorated in bold red, black and white, and with the added benefit of air conditioning it's very comfortable. In fact, you might never leave — the hotel has its own library/reading room, an activity center with a billiards table, arcade games, and two fitness areas.

2. Le Relais Montmartre

Le Relais Montmartre

This luxury boutique hotel only has 26 rooms. Each is decorated in pleasing floral prints. Athough located on a quite side street, the best of Montmartre is a short walk from the hotel's door — like Moulin Rouge, Sacre Coeur, Moulin de la Galette, and the Lapin Agile nightclub. Guests rave about Le Relais Montmartre's balance between classic design and practical details, noting the recently refurbished rooms, hearty breakfast, the close proximity to great restaurants, wine bars, and metro stations.

4. Hotel Le Chat Noir

Hotel Le Chat Noir

Feline lovers rejoice — this Paris hotel uses a feline theme throughout with fun rooms and suites. (Chat Noir, after all, means Black Cat.) Rooms include — Feline (single), Top Feline (standard double or twin), Super Feline (deluxe double), Ultra Feline (triple) & Mega Feline (700 square foot apartment). We'd opt for the Mega Feline which comes equipped with a kitchen, dining table for eight, and a private balcony.

Le Chat Noir has a fascinating history. It was the first Parisian cabaret, opening its doors in 1881. It became so popular so quickly that it had to move to a larger location in 1885 and then again just a few years later, to the current site, that later became the hotel. One of the things Picasso was looking forward to when he first visited Paris was a visit to the notorious Le Chat Noir. Alas, Pablo didn't get to Paris until 1900. Le Chat Noir closed in 1897.

8. Mercure Paris Montmartre Sacre Coeur

Mercure Paris Montmartre Sacre Coeur

Also in the cheap-and-cheerful category of Paris hotels is the Mercure chain's offering in Montmartre.

Guests love the simple, clean, rooms and are surprised at how close everything is to the hotel. They also love the French hotel breakfast with excellent espresso, baguettes, cheese, butter and fresh fruit.
