Nestled in a great Montmartre location, the Hotel des Arts offers polished rooms along with artistic flourishes that pay homage to the Van Gogh’s and Toulouse Lautrec’s that once called the neighborhood home.
Pros: Picturesque Montmartre setting. Spacious rooms. Immaculately clean.
Cons: Not the cheapest option.
Many of the Hotel des Arts’ rooms seem downright spacious when compared to the tiny streets zigzagging outside their windows. Rooms are attractive, decorated à la traditional, in warm burgundies and creams with small Paris-themed prints hanging on the walls. All rooms are equipped with flat-screen TV, telephone and free Wi-Fi. Some rooms offer views of the picturesque streets below. (Ask when reserving.)
Pristine private bathrooms with fresh tiles, hair dryer, good lighting and rather luxurious toiletries come with all rooms. Most are equipped with showers, although bathtubs are available (ask ahead).
The Hotel des Arts stays true to its name with an ever-present artistic theme. A mural on each floor prominently features an artist who once called Paris home. Downstairs, the hotel serves a breakfast buffet for €10.
Located in the heart of Montmartre, the Hotel des Arts is a quick walk to either the Sacré Coeur basilica or the many award-winning bakeries on rue des Abbesses. (You choose!)
Metro: Getting to the hotel is easiest from the Metro line 2 at the station Blanche or the line 12 at Abbesses if you want to avoid much uphill clamoring.
Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports: Take RER B to Gare du Nord and switch to metro line 2 for the quickest arrival.

About the Hôtel des Arts 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.
