Timhotel Saint-Georges


Member Rating 3 out of 5 by Jim Rosenberg on April 3, 2002

Located on the sometimes seamy Boulevard de Clichy near the Pigalle Metro stop, this member of the Timhotel chain is a two-star that ranks no better than "adequate." Its location a couple of blocks from the Moulin Rouge in a neighborhood well-populated with often-tacky cabarets, nightclubs and various sex shops makes it a bad choice for a family stay. That said, it is convenient to Montmartre and Sacre Coeur, an extremely popular tourist area with a lot of great streets to walk and plenty of history as one of the oldest neighborhoods in Paris. The breakfast is decent and is included in your room or is available for 8.5 euros. The rooms are smallish and rather spartan, some facing an interior courtyard and others out the nearly-always-active Boulevard de Clichy. The 74-room hotel was renovated fairly recently, water pressure is good (no guarantee in some two-star properties) and the place seems to be kept up and clean. If you have a reason to want to be in this particular area, you don't need anything special -- but you would like something clean, reliable and not too pricey -- then this hotel is a possibility. Even more importantly, there are 14 other Timhotel locations in different areas -- for example, there is one just a few blocks north in a tres romantique setting of Montmartre. You can check out various offerings and book online at:

In short, this is a reasonably-priced group of hotels that is worth knowing about in Paris.
