The two-star Jeff Hotel offers basic rooms with boutique aspirations in the heart of the ninth arrondissement. A bit too scruffy for some, the Jeff will appeal to Cheapos looking for a clean and friendly hotel with a touch of style.
Pros: Comfortable rooms with some boutique stylings. Great location.
Cons: Small lobby and reception area. Tiny elevator.
The rooms you’ll be able to search for on EuroCheapo are on floors four, five and six—and have all been remodeled. These rooms sport a modern, boutique aesthetic: Walls, bedspreads and curtains are muted grays, purples and browns. Furniture is a bit of a grab bag, but generally stylish, and all rooms are equipped with a flat-screen TV, telephone and free Wi-Fi access. Rooms, especially on the highest floors, have some magnificent views out over the neighborhood. The area gets a fair amount of traffic, but the double-paned windows should keep most of the street noise outside.
Private baths have also been renovated with new black-and-white tiles and glass showers. All are equipped with a hair dryer.
Breakfast is offered for €6, although there are several cafés within steps of the hotel.
The Jeff Hotel benefits from a primo location, sitting pretty at the five-point intersection of rue du Faubourg Montmartre, rue Richer and rue Cadet (a picturesque market street). This area offers a wealth of small shops, including several Jewish restaurants and stores. The famous Folies Bergère is one block down the rue Richer.
Finally, with a name like "Jeff," it probably won’t come as a surprise that the hotel is named after its very affable young owner. You might be surprised, however, that this is his family name. If you’re like us, you’ll greatly enjoy chatting with Monsieur Pierre Jeff.

About the Jeff Hotel neighborhood
The 9th arrondissement has something of a split personality: On the one hand, it’s home to always bustling mega department stores like Galeries Lafayette and Printemps (and one of the city’s two Apple store locations) as well as the ballet and opera lovers landmark that is Opéra Garnier. But it also shares a 9th arrondissement zip code with Pigalle, home to the Moulin Rouge, birthplace of the can-can.
