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

We booked this hotel after a lot of research online, as it seemed budget friendly and rooms looked good. But we were in for a little disappointment!

Very easy to find with a perfect metro connection to the center. The staff is very friendly but not always knowledgeable of eating out options in the area. The rooms was really tiny but very clean. Overall a great option to stay in Paris.

We have stayed in the hotel for five nights during our visit to Paris. Rooms are quite small but it didn't bother us much since we spend most of our time outside and only came back to our room for a night sleep and a shower. It would be nice to have a proper wardrobe instead of four rather small... More

I wanted to stay somewhere fairly central but not pay an excessive amount, although I know that's asking a lot in Paris. This hotel was very well located - a 10m walk from GDN Station, there were also lots of nice restaurants and bars on the same road / nearby and Cadet metro station is about 2 mins away. So... More

It's Paris. Don't look for space, you will not find it; look for a great location and comfort. Actually, you do not need to look further more, because Gat Folies is the place you need to stay at. Enjoy!

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.
