I almost did! and I would've missed out on a clean and comfortable hotel in a great area run by friendly staff (This IS Paris so that's rare in itself!)
My boyfriend and I traipsed around many of the hotels in Montmartre and this hotel won hands down for its clean comfortable room and price! Staying there in Feb 2012 we paid 66Euros per night, the cheapest rate we found,
The entrance is on rue Audran just off Abessess and after 11pm there is a key code for entry making if feel much safer.
It is located centrally between 3 metro stations, which covers 2 different lines and therefore you can get anywhere really easily! (Metro tip - buy 10 tickets for 12Euros something, it's cheaper than buying them individually!)
Sacre Coeur is about a 5-10min walk through roads laden with coffee shops, boutiques and boulangeries as is the Moulin Rouge, interestingly, the boulangerie's in Paris run a competition every year to see who makes the best baguette and will supply the royal palace for that year... the ones who've won the last 2 years are both on Abesses. Also, on the subject of food, the cafe directly underneath this hotel (Le Chinon) is one of the best on the street, we know as we tried them all!
The room itself is basic and decor a little tired but not too shabby, it was a decent size with a double bed, small flat screen, desk, chair, mirror and built in wardrobe / cupboard, there isn't lots of space for suitcases but we managed, Also the room is cleaned every day which helped us keep on top of any mess spiralling out of control! The bathroom is tiled, clean and is a decent size with an excellent shower! Big plus points on the hot powerful shower which was needed after walking around all day in the cold! The room was also very warm but we were lucky enough to have the only room (I think) with a balcony which, as well as being able to open it for air, also had an amazing view...ask for room 26 on the 2nd floor.
Due to the cafe underneath which is open till 1am, you CAN hear the base of the music and also sounds from the street, honestly, for me personally, it didn't bother me, but then I live in a busy part of London, so just a heads up if you need peace and quiet to sleep!
That aside, I can't recommend this hotel enough :)
