Smack in the middle of downtown Montmartre, these spotless lodgings will please those who prefer clean efficiency to eccentric charm. Beds are firm, bathrooms look new, windows are double-glazed. The decor, on the other hand, is pretty boring, but who cares when rue des Abbesses is just around the corner? Most rooms get plenty of sunlight, but there are a few on the courtyard that are slightly below street level and get less—if light is an issue for you, be sure to request an upstairs room when you reserve.
