Nice and inviting hotel. Welcoming entrance and lobby area. All staff was very friendly! Breakfast was also really good. The only downside was our room being the size of a shoebox.. For the price we paid that room was not enough if you ask me. But I guess that's paris?

Staff very friendly, speaking good English, beds comfortable. Room was small for two person, quite dark at the back of the hotel on the 3th floor and window facing the gorge. Breakfast was very good and all service excellent.

The bathroom was not cleaned well, the window looked to the inside yard, there was a wall of the neighbor building in two meters. The hotel itself is situated on a small street, which is not always indicated on the maps, so it took time to find it going from Gard de Nord

The location is very good, 20 min from Louvre, 10 min form Printemps etc, 15 min to Monmartre, 15 min to the Canal St Martin. The hotel is trendy and the first impression is very nice. The room is tiny (although we were expecting it) but somewhat uncomfortable: the stylish clothing hangers are unhandy and useless. The sink is just... More

Because I visited Paris for business reasons, price and location were important and this hotel was still available while most others were not. It's a small place, but strangely enough very close to the Folies Bergères. That didn't cause any discomfort but that place does attract lots of people (and often well worth the watch :)) Several friends stayed in... More

This hotel was nice, it was modern and the people who worked there were very friendly. Unfortunately they hadn't been taught by the manager because she was not very nice and did not know how to behave towards customers. We had a room for three persons, which were named a "junior suite". The name could make you think of luxury... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
