This has old style furniture and design. The hotel is clean. I encountered 3 people manning the reception during the time I stayed there. The 2 guys were very helpful and friendly. The 3 person (a blonde middle aged woman) was nasty, unhelpful. She really doesn't belong in a role where you interact with customers. There is no free WiFi.... More

We visited the hotel in the second week of June for three nights. The nights were quite warrm with some thunder and the AC was not working effectively, had to sleep a window opened. Tripple room was spacy, a good bath room and enough closets for cloths, a safety box. Good beds, three chairs, table, chest of drawers to put... More

I didn`t think a place like this could exist...it is surreal. The guy on the desk was about 80 years old and a poster child for the stereotypical Parisian attitude of `I don`t give a damn`(this wasn`t a language thing,I was travelling with a French colleague) `How do we acess the WIFI`......response.....shrug,pout,walks away mumbling to himself. `Where is the nearest...

I imagine the basic look of this hotel has remained unchanged for decades, stepping inside is like stepping back into the 19th century. You either find this look charming or dated, but I loved it as the hotel has a lot going for it. Our room was really large for a traditional Paris hotel, where you often have difficulty wheeling...

I travel to Paris for Business nearly 4 times a year. My colleagues usually stay at more "business oriented" hotels such as the Mercure or at the peripherique (Meridien or Courtyard). However, I feel that not all is work and the location is perfect, specially after returning from the office. The street is quiet but it is one block asway... More

Great location, but there are nicer hotels on the same street at the same price! We stayed 2 days after Christmas and paid 140.- Euros a night....The Hotel was old and very dirty. The hallways were not even vaccumed, the sink in our room was dirty and it smelled bad. Our room was old and smelly, looked like sissy's abandoned... More

This is an average hotel. The bonus is that it is just off the great boulevards, around the corner from Opera Garnier and a short walk from Laduree, where the chocolate chaud and macaron are a treat. It's an old and tired hotel, but the rooms are adequate for a short stay (I was just there overnight) and wanted to... More

Third time at this hotel-No suprise (good or bad) Great location coming from CDG by Roissy Bus close to Opera Garnier (Metro) and to department store. Room would need renovation. Size of room for Paris is fair. Ask for a room in the back less noise.

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.
