Question about Hotel in Montmartre

Hi All,

Has anyone stayed at the Hotel Le Regent Montmartre in Paris?
http://www.hotelregent-montmartre.com/
It's located on the Blvd Rochechouart near the ANVERS metro station. I'm a female traveling alone, and I just want to find out if the area is sketchy or anything. Also, if you know any good cafes or restaurants in the area, please let me know! Thanks,

Babs

It's just not that attractive an area, in my opinion. You're just off the 's*x shop' strip, tons of tourists streaming up the hill to Sacre Coeur, and traffic.

The area south of there is pretty nice, though, ave. Trudaine, rue des Martyrs, etc.

From the picture, the mattress looks a little lumpy. I would wonder, since hotels usually use the best shot they have.
Have you looked on tripadvisor?

I checked on trip advisor and the place actually had some really poor reviews...not recently...but not long enough ago to ignore. I found a much better place in the Marais called Austin's Arts Et Metiers. Thanks for the advice.

That's one of my least favorite areas in Paris.

If you're looking for an inexpensive hotel, I stayed at Residence Alhambra in May (I flew from US to Paris to see two concerts at the Bataclan, and I wanted a hotel within walking distance of the venue). It was very reasonable, and right by the Oberkampf metro stop.

I don't live too far from there, but I would have to admit that Boulevard de Rochechouart is one of the last places I would suggest for a single woman to go. You are not at all at risk, but it can be very sleazy and unpleasant in the neighborhood. One positive point is that the hotel is on the south side of the street, which is significantly nicer than the north side (and there is a very wide neutral ground separating the two sides).

The_Babs, I think your choice of the Arts et Metier looks very nice and is in a better location.
Have a great trip!
