I stayed here whilst enjoying a long weekend in Paris with my wife. Unfortunately, it wasn't the relaxing visit we hoped it might have been. The hotel may be newly-refurbished (they were just finishing off the reception when we arrived) but it's a shame no one factored carpets into the plans. Each room has hard laminate flooring, which unfortunately turns the hotel into a noisy, cacophonous echo chamber. Furthermore, the door to each room is on a heavy spring, making it difficult to avoid slamming it shut. Consequently, our stay was disturbed by frequent booms, bangs, tapping and clattering from the rooms around us morning, noon and night.
Aside from the noise issue, the rooms are simple and pleasant with all the facilities one expects from a budget hotel. The beds are comfortable (though if there's two of you, you'll have to fight for the single extra pillow). The blackout blinds are an excellent idea that other hotels ought to take onboard. The provision of only two electrical sockets in the entire room is a little restrictive - especially when one wants to charge multiple phones, laptops, cameras etc. The bathroom is very clean and the shower is excellent (though only two small towels are provided). The free wi-fi is strong throughout the hotel (including in the rooms) but it disconnects very quickly forcing you to log in again and again. Despite a thermostat on the wall, there appears to be no air-conditioning and consequently, the rooms get very hot in the night. The window does open but the noise from the busy street below may put you off that idea!
A buffet breakfast is available but I would not recommend it. The limited hotel staff clearly struggle to keep up with the number of guests wanting breakfast and consequently many of the items (including cutlery and plates!) soon run out. We didn't see any fruit for the three days of our visit and finding a spoon became an achievement! What's more, the staff are incredibly grumpy and do not take kindly to being informed that something is missing. With so many excellent places to find breakfast in Paris, I would recommend giving the hotel breakfast a miss.
I guess if you are out and about in Paris for most of the day and looking for somewhere cheap to rest your head, the ibis Paris Montmartre is ideal - just don't expect a good night's sleep or a decent breakfast.
