We arrived by train from London and the walk from the station took about 15-20 minutes. The loft is approached down a side alley next to the Moulin rouge, the lane is disgusting and stinks, not a great first impression. We stayed in the duplex which is reasonably spacious, but the downstairs bedroom is pokey at best and the feel of the entire complex is strangely claustrophobic. The apartment has got everything you need to self cater but it is very 'rustic'. I was travelling with my 3 kids so the space was preferable to hotel rooms.
Francois is a decent bloke and very helpful when he is there but for part of the three days we were there, no one was around to provide any assistance.
I have been to Paris many times, including staying in the best hotels, but this was the first time staying in Montmartre. i really liked it and really recommend the area for families. rue lepic nearby has a superb selection of provision stores and supermarkets with quality produce. Also, there is a stack of cafes and restaurants at the top of the street. Yes, Pigalle is pretty vulgar but just walk up the hill a few metres to get away from it.
The location is a little out of the way but there is the metro and stacks of taxis (which we used) and it only takes few minutes to get to all the main attractions.
Therefore, i highly recommend staying in Montmartre and the loft is ok and not bad value, but the photos don't really tell the full story.
