Nestled smack dab in the middle of Montmartre, Pigalle and Abbesses, the two-star Hotel André Gill is a quiet family-run establishment offering clean, basic rooms at very low rates for Paris.
Pros: Low rates. Family-run charm. Quiet location.
Cons: Very simple rooms without TV or air conditioning.
In each of the André Gill’s 33 rooms you’ll find simple furnishings along with quite a bit of space and a built-in closet stocked with extra blankets and hangers. When we say simple, we mean it: no TV, telephone or air conditioning. There’s a flat-screen television in one room on the top floor and one in the lobby. Fans are available upon request.
Bathrooms are tiled in blues, yellows or pinks and equipped with showers (several also have tubs). Most have dated fixtures, although some rooms have renovated baths.
A few top-floor rooms have romantic views: Two look to the Eiffel Tower, and two face Sacré Coeur. One amazing room at the tippy-top boasts a panoramic view of the surrounding quarter and the Eiffel Tower—which you can see even from the toilet (talk about a "royal flush!").
Outfitted throughout in deep blue, golden yellow, burnt orange and lavender, the André Gill reminded us of bright textiles from the South of France. We were charmed by the crystal chandelier and the family art in the lobby and adored the friendly mascot kitties. We also loved the stained-glass and the murals, painted by a local artist, of the Sacré Coeur and Moulin de la Galette.
Notably (for Paris), breakfast is included in the room rate. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.
Of historical note, André Gill was a political caricaturist, perhaps most famous today for painting the spunky rabbit on the famed Montmartre hangout Au Lapin Agile. The name is a pun in French (“lapin à Gill” means “the rabbit by Gill”).
The hotel is located just blocks from innumerable (and oh, so historic) clubs, bars and cafés near Pigalle and Montmartre. One of our favorite pizza joints, La Pignatta, is located just one block away at 89 rue des Martyrs.
However, the building itself, a centuries-old number with a brand-spanking-new awning and banner, is tucked away on a quaint cobblestoned street that is free of noise and traffic.
Metro: The hotel is located just minutes from two Métro stations, Abbesses (line 12) and Pigalle (lines 2 and 12).

About the Hotel Andre Gill 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.
