4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

An excellent hotel right in the heart of Paris and very reasonably priced. For a hotel in this location the rooms were a decent size and very comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very handy for the Metro. Would definitely return and use this as a base to explore Paris from.

Small, high price hotel in a good location to the site seeing spots. Nonetheless the street makes a dirty impression with lots of rubbish on it. The room was quite dark since directed to the yard. Rooms to the street are much brighter.

The hotel was nice and quaint. It is very centrally located - in close proximity to the Madeleine station, which gives easy access to all of the major sites. You can easily walk to the Louvre, the River Seine, or the shops on Rue St. Honore. It is only a small hike to the Champs Elysees. In this location, I... More

I recently booked a last minute trip to Paris and found this hotel after extensive research. I was not disappointed! The room was comfortable for European standards. Our room was always left clean and smelling fresh, and the workers were extremely kind. The location is perfect. Not too far from the Metro and bus lines. Most attractions are walking distance...but... More

Lovely Hotel, close to Madeline subway station. Lovely staff, very helpful. Location great within minutes walking to Opera District, and various options to eat at within minutes of the hotel, Good little cafe/bakery/patisserie opposite the Italian restaurant on the corner when you turn left exiting the hotel. Very comfortable and clean.

We checked in on July 21 for 5 nights at the Folkestone Opera. We have stayed at numerous hotels over the years in Paris. The Folkestone exceeded our expectations for a 3 star hotel in almost every category. We occupied room 103, a deluxe twin bed room that overlooked the street. Even for a deluxe room it was very spacious... More
