Les Jardins de Montmartre is a small hotel to the north of Montmartre, a villagey part of Paris that is known for the "slinking streets lined with crooked ivy-clad buildings" that "retain a fairy-tale charm" (Lonely Planet). The hotel's décor is inspired by the seasons, and each bedroom has a specific theme -- spring, summer, autumn or winter.
It is a 10-minute walk uphill into Montmartre. The area was once the Parisian quarter of choice for painters such as Dali, Monet, Picasso and Van Gogh. If you visit Place du Tertre -- which is 15 minutes' walk from the hotel -- you'll find a charming, tree-lined, cobbled square where Montmartre's artists still gather to paint. The hotel is a 15-minute walk from the Sacré-Cœur Basilica, described by Fodor's as "the white castle in the sky", where you can climb the dome to take in the "superlative view". The Moulin Rouge cabaret is 20 minutes' walk from the hotel.
Jules Joffrin Métro station, which is on line 12, is two minutes' walk away. The Arc de Triomphe is about half an hour by the 12 and 2 Métro lines.
Breakfast is served in the hotel's dining room from 7-10:30am. From 2-7pm, there is complimentary juice, tea, coffee, pastries and madeleines. The 38 bedrooms have bright, quirky décor, themed around one of the seasons. In typical Parisian style, they are on the small side. Superior Rooms are larger than Classic Rooms. Wi-Fi is free.
