Hotel Bonsejour Montmartre
Ranked #1,195 of 1,809 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Don't bother with this place. I wouldnt even call this a hostel, let alone a hotel. I really wish i had read the reviews before i booked this place. First off, our view was a concrete wall. Second, theres no lift, only 5 flights of spiral stairs. Next, theres only 1 shower for 55 rooms (i think that should be illegal). Fourth, you can hear every single flush (and everything else) from the toilet (theres only 1 toilet on each floor). Fifth, we booked a double bed - its a king single at best. Sixth, the hotel (if you can call it that) was dirty and the montmartre area is quite dirty as well. The photos on the website are completely misleading. Our bedroom light didnt work.. Staff are very rude. Basically, i was literally reduced to tears of dissappoitment. We were ripped off. Definately not the romantic trip to Paris i had planned.

Room Tip: Don't stay here. Pay the extra money for a decent place.

I have stayed twice in this hotel and although I agree that the fascilities are far from excellent it is in an excellent location within Montemarte. The Pigalle is also within walking distance and the Moulin Rouge plus lots of places to eat, metro stations, small shops etc. etc..
Admittedly there is no lift so you need to be fairly fit to carry cases upstairs and the shower is as described, a cubicle within the room. However the water is hot and plentiful and a good breakfast is included within the price. I would not descibe the proprietor as rude just rather 'French' and not enthusive although he 'phoned for a taxi for us and also when our friends were unable to get the shuttle bus to the airport arranged an early morning taxi. He also allowed us to leave our luggage in his office until the afternoon before we left for Gare de Nord and the Eurostar. The hotel is an inexpensive place to stay in the heart of Paris. To get anywhere near the price one would have to travel in from the suburbs or else pay considerably more for your room. The bed was comfortable and the room cleaned daily.

Room Tip: As there is no lift ask for a room on the 1st floor. There are also a few rooms with small balconie...

Rude Receptionist! I had 2 rooms booked in which he messed up, he then placed me and my family in a room that is catered for single occupancy, yet charged me for the price of double. when i tried to confront him, he pretended not to understand me and starting blurting in French. It is just what other reviews have written about him, they are all true. He is impatient.

breakfast was lousy. doors would slammed shut and they are not well functioned. the toilets are all located outside of the room and are always dirty. shower room, is located at the ground floor.

STAY AWAY!!!

We were hoping quite a lot - the description stated that we would get a bathroom and a shower which actually turned out to be a shower-booth in our room's corner. The pipes of the showers of all floors went straight through our room and as it was very hot, we heard constant noise of water running through the pipes even at night. The first night was horrible.. We had to check whether our shower was leaking badly or was it just someone else having a shower upstairs. The toilet was shared with the whole floor. The older receptionist was very rude on our arrival. We were standing there, trying to approach him in French, and he was just minding his own business, slightly smirking. We learned quite soon to get there quite late to get a good sleep because the 'pub' next door was quite loud as well. And do not forget the scooters driving around until quite late. However, the location was perfect.. The room was clean (although we were paranoid after reading a previous review about bedbugs). The coffee in the morning was not anything impressive.. The only reason we would not rate the hotel as horrible was the fact that we do not know about the other hotels. I guess the price for that quality would be quite normal in Paris.

The manager/owner was incredibly rude and unwelcoming. The place smells and is dirty.
He made up excuses saying our reservation was cancelled (even though we saw on his computer that it was not), insisted and insisted that we did not have a room. Magically after 20 minutes of trying to reason with him he had a room available but we had to pay cash because his machine was "broken". We asked to use his phone and he refused saying we had to pay him for it. We made arrangements for another hotel and when he saw us getting ready to leave his credit card machine started working again.
We walked out and did not look back.
Horrible place, please do not go here it is not worth it.

The man who works on the desk is not welcoming at all, and gives it a bad first impression. The room was not clean, and the communal toilet was awful. We were on the 5th floor and the only shower was on the ground floor and was again awful, a bit of a joke really. There are better places to stay in Monmartre and they will probably be cheaper. On the plus side was in a nice area, near the Sacre Coeur and the view from the room was nice.

Very cold reception on arrival, not rude but didn't make us feel welcome at all. Extremely shabby and just generally a bit of a dump. We were on the fifth floor and there was no elevator, there was also only one shower in the entire building (and there is 30+ rooms in the hotel!) located on the ground floor which is not practical what so ever. It's also very noisy outside, I would never EVER stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel!
