On a narrow street just off lively rue des Abbesses, this unassuming hotel once hosted artists and sculptors and even a few dancers from the Moulin Rouge. Currently run by the third generation of the Lameyre family, today’s guests are generally tourists, who enjoy the great rates, comfortable lodgings and welcoming atmosphere. Rooms are small, yet spotless, with firm mattresses and cheerful colors on the walls. A few have distant views of the Eiffel Tower over Parisian rooftops; the “Romantic” room comes with a bottle of champagne and has a small balcony. You’ll pay more for these, but they are still a bargain. Montmartre’s two remaining windmills, Moulin de la Galette and Moulin du Radet, are just up the street.
