Are you considering booking a hotel in Montmartre for your Paris visit? 

Although well over a century has passed since bohemian artists such as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Pablo Picasso, Suzanne Valadon, Edgar Degas, and Amadeo Modigliani lived and worked here during the Belle Epoque period, the neighborhood retains its quirky charm and village-like ambiance.

If you're like many visitors, you'll love Montmartre's winding cobblestone lanes, numerous small cafes and boutiques, leafy parks, small museums, and unexpected art, such as the "Wall of Love" mural in Place des Abbesses and the bronze bust of Dalida, the famous French-Italian-Egyptian singer whose remains reside in the Montmartre Cemetery.

At the foot of the butte (hill where Montmartre borders Pigalle along Boulevard de Clichy/Boulevard Marguerite de Rochechouart (same street, with a name change at the Rue des Martyrs intersection), you'll find the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret, La Cigale and La Trianon concert halls, and other sizzling nightlife.

Because Montmartre lies outside of central Paris, you'll also enjoy lower hotel rates here than you'd find for equivalent accommodations in Arrondissements 1 through 9.  Thanks to the super-efficient metro as well as Paris's compact footprint, reaching other parts of the city is quicker and easier than you might imagine.

In this article, we recommend some of the best Montmartre hotels and apartments at all budget points for you to consider during your stay.

To quickly spot Maison Souquet, located about a 1-2 minute walk from Moulin Rouge, look for two red lights - a not-so-subtle nod to the building's Belle Époque stint as a maison close, an upscale brothel catering to wealthy pleasure seekers.

The "pleasure house" theme continues inside the hotel, where lush silk and velvet fabrics, dark colors, and slightly risqué artwork featuring scantily clad women create a romantic Art Nouveau ambiance without any sacrifices of 21st century comfort.

Each of the 20 guestrooms and suites bear the name of a famous courtesan unique decor grouped around five themes:  Japanese, 18th century, Second Empire French (ie, Napoleon III), Chinese, and Indian.  A hammam and pool will add to your pleasure.  Tea is served each afternoon, and a bartender is on hand during the evenings to mix your favorite drink.

55 Boulevard Marguerite de Rochechouart, 9th arrondissement; nearest metro: Blanche

Famed Montmartre music halls La Cigale and La Trianon are almost directly across the street, and a leisurely 5-minute walk will bring you to the Moulin Rouge cabaret, while you can reach Sacre Coeur in less than 10 minutes - if you take the funicular up the hill!

After closing down a few years ago for a complete top-to-bottom renovation, the 4-star Hotel Rochechouart has emerged with a poshly elegant Art Deco vibe in its public spaces and 106 guestrooms and suites.  The real show-stopper, though, is the fabulous rooftop terrace/bar offering sweeping views of Paris.

34 Rue Pierre Fontaine, 9th Arrondissement; nearest metro: Blanche

Book a stay at Timhotel Opera Blanche Fontaine, and you'll be less than a block away from Moulin Rouge and the Blanche metro station - perfect for enjoying a late show with dinner and Champagne at the famous caberet, or for quickly and easily getting to other parts of the city on the metro. 

Other top Montmartre sites are also nearby and the tantalizing Rue des Martyrs market street is just a short walk away.  This part of the SoPi (South of Pigalle) neighborhood is packed with small bistros and cafes, including the popular Pink Mamma trattoria and The French Bastards bakery (where you should stop by for a decadently delicious pain au chocolat).

Although you can't see much of the hotel from the street because it opens onto a quiet courtyard beyond its entrance gage, it is actually larger than it appears with 69 guestrooms.

Rates for smaller rooms fall into the "bargain" category if you're looking for cheap accommodations.  Adjoining rooms can easily accommodate families.  For more spacious quarters (also with affordable rates), book an executive room for up to 4 people, or a junior suite.

Want to enjoy amazing views of the Eiffel Tower and Paris rooftops from your hotel in Montmartre?  Book a stay at the 4-star Terrass' Hotel, where you can gaze at the Tower from the 7th floor bar, terrace, and restaurant as well as some of the 92 guestrooms.

You'll find a lot more to love than just the views at this unique property, which opened in 1911 and has been owned, managed, and periodically renovated by the same family since the beginning. 

With the 5th generation now at the helm, the chic contemporary guestrooms feature jewel-like primary colors paired with black and white - evocative of a Mondrian painting and artists' dressing rooms, in homage to the hotel's early days when artists, writers such as Colette, and musicians gathered there. 

In a city known for its small hotel rooms, Terrass' is an exception.  Even the smallest guestrooms here are relatively spacious, and the largest suites are enormous.  Similar to other Montmartre hotels, you'll find some excellent values here. 

And remember, whether you book the smallest, cheapest room or splurge on the priciest, you'll have access to the grand views from the top floor bar and restaurant - so let your budget be your guide!

Terrass' is located about a 10-minute walk from Montmartre's top two attractions, Moulin Rouge and Sacre Coeur. 

If you take the most direct route along Rue des Abbesses to Sacre Coeur, you can either walk up the stairs (which are not as steep as they look from ground level) to the church or hop on the funicular, the little electric train that takes you up the hill in less than a minute. 

Alternately, walk along the gently-sloping "back" route along Rue Lepic/Rue Norvins, which takes you past all the artists and gift shops in Place du Tertre.

In addition, the hotel includes a lovely well-stocked library and co-working space - perfect for pursuing your own literary endeavors, or just cocooning.

Pro Tip #1:  Book a guest room with a balcony with an Eiffel Tower view over the Paris rooftops and enjoy the sparkling light show each evening

Pro Tip #2:  Enjoy classic French cuisine and wine at Le Moulin de la Galette; during the busiest months (May - September), reservations are a good idea
