This hotel is OLD, and the rooms follow suit. They smell musty and just are not in the best condition. The sheets are hard and the beds are incredibly uncomfortable. When we first arrived, it was made very clear to us that the man who was the night staffer was not too keen on us - presumably because we spoke... More

There is no getting away from the fact that this hotel is old. My first impressions was 'this needs to be refurbished very very soon". However, the staff were very helpful and friendly and after a day or so of being in Paris this hotel just felt right. Yes it is old, but then so is most of Paris and... More

It was our second time to stay in Richmond Opera and I've come to appreciate it more. Let me start with the rooms: we were a family of three and had a triple-sharing room. It was very spacious, had a high ceiling, and even had a small dining table. This was perfect for us since we had three big pieces... More

We visited this hotel in the second week of May for 3 nights. A blonde middle aged women was at the reception. She’s a charming lady and really helpful. She guided us a lot during our stay. She gave us a superior room for quite reasonable price. The room was spacy as compared to normal hotel rooms elsewhere in Paris.... More

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

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.
