The two-star Hippodrome is located on a quiet street off the bustling Boulevard de Clichy, a short walk to Montmartre and Pigalle. While it didn’t blow us away, the hotel is a friendly and family-run place and usually represents a solid value.

Pros: Cheerily decorated rooms. Convenient location. Cheap rates.

Cons: No elevator.

Review

The family-run Hotel Hippodrome Montmartre is a solid budget option for travelers looking to stay near the Place de Clichy in the artsy Batignolles neighborhood. The place won’t seduce you (or knock your chaussettes off), but it will offer you clean lodgings at a decent price.

The hotel’s 24 rooms are painted a yellow or pink, and red dominates the bedspreads, curtains and carpets (a reminder, perhaps, of the proximity of Pigalle and its famous dance halls and cabarets).

All rooms are well-equipped with a flat-screen TV, telephone, writing desk and framed prints. Private baths are renovated and each equipped with hair dryers and showers.

Breakfast is served (for €6) in a room off the reception area that doubles as a lounge. Across the street, a “Flunch” restaurant offers Cheapo-friendly meals, French cafeteria-style.

Note that rooms are located on three floors, without an elevator.

About the Hippodrome 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.
