We couldn't stop taking photos of the Ermitage Sacre Coeur, an elegant hilltop mansion-turned-guesthouse situated in the shadow of the famous basilica in Montmartre.
Pros: Lovingly decorated rooms in an old mansion. Some rooms with amazing views over Paris. Family run and full of character.
Cons: Location can feel far-flung.
The classy B&B is family-owned and provides 12 artistically-minded guest rooms. Rooms are papered with English flower-print fabrics and furnished with handcrafted beds, armoires and tables dating from the early 1900s. Each room has a slightly different décor, but all are sure to charm.
Otherwise, it's simple: No TV, no elevator, and no smoking. All rooms are equipped with standard tiled bathrooms (some with bathtubs).
The Ermitage's rooms either face the rather quiet rue Lamarck (which winds around in front of the steps of Sacre Coeur) or face Paris. By "face Paris," we mean that, as the B&B is situated atop a hill, several rooms offer jaw-dropping and unobstructed views of the city (see photo—and ask ahead). Two ground-floor rooms open to the guesthouse's flower-filled garden.
Breakfast is included and is brought to your room. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the property.
Note: L'Ermitage accepts cash only.
The Ermitage Sacre Coeur’s location, just minutes down the street from the Sacre Coeur itself, is a show-stopper. This places you minutes from not just the basilica, but also the neighborhood’s countless restaurants, cafes and bars.
As picturesque as this location may be, the hike won't be for everyone, and the sights of central Paris can feel quite a distance away. But that view...
Metro: The guesthouse is located about five minutes from the “Lamarck Caulaincourt” Metro station (line 12). When leaving the station, take the elevator to the rue Lamarck, and walk to the hotel (at 24, rue Lamarck) along the road toward Sacre Coeur.

About the Ermitage Sacre Coeur neighborhood
Overlooking Paris to the north, Montmartre's winding streets have inspired starving artists and bohemians for generations. That charm still exists, but today co-exists with a theme park of the original village, complete with postcard touts, tourist-ready restaurants, and portrait painters. Hotels around Montmartre can be quite affordable--just be prepared to do a lot of walking.
