If you make it your mission to uncover the secrets of just one district while in Paris, make it Montmartre. Home to the kind of charm you’ll seldom find elsewhere in the city, as well as plenty of cobbled lanes and quirky eateries, here’s your complete guide to the best Montmartre hotels, including the top-reviewed and rated accommodation, and where to stay in Montmartre, i.e. the 18th arrondissement of Paris!
Introducing Montmartre, the 18th arrondissement of Paris
Situated to the North of the city, Montmartre is an arrondissement (that’s ‘district’ in French) that’s characterised by its village vibe, many cobbled lanes, and beautiful architecture. Far removed from the Haussmannian architecture that’s so synonymous with the rest of the city, some of the top attractions here include the Sacré Coeur, artists painting en plein air in the Place du Tertre, and the Montmartre Vineyard.
Even if you’re just spending a limited amount of time in the city, then I highly recommend at the very least spending an afternoon wandering around the 18th’s pretty as a postcard streets and uncovering a few of the hidden gems this area of Paris has to offer. If you’re looking for a DIY guide, here’s my free and self-guided Montmartre walking tour.
Things to know before booking Montmartre accommodation
If you’re searching for somewhere to stay in Montmartre, then you should know that Montmartre is popular year-round, especially during peak season (i.e. the summer months and during school holidays). As such, you’ll want to book your place to stay well in advance so as to secure the best deals, rates, and accommodation.
