Review

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.

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.

Bathrooms are tiled in blues, yellows and 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 seems to give a nod to Provence. We were charmed by the crystal chandelier and the family art in the lobby (not to mention 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”).

Location

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.

The Place Pigalle, it should be noted, can also be a bit seedy. However, the hotel is tucked away on a quaint cobblestoned street that is free of noise, traffic and ill-repute.

About the Hotel Andre Gill neighborhood

The wedding cake of a church that is the hilltop Sacré-Coeur basilica is this area’s most recognizable monument, and those who climb up will be rewarded with an incomparable view overlooking Paris. Montmartre's winding streets have inspired generations of starving artists and bohemians. That charm now co-exists with a theme park of the original village, centered on the Place du Tertre, complete with touristy restaurants and bars, and "artists" offering to sketch your portrait or sell you their lurid oil paintings.
