When in Paris, I normally stay in the Best Western Opal around the corner from here. However it was too expensive this time so I tried the Folkestone instead. It is an excellent Hotel in my opinion. It's in a quiet side street within easy walking distance of both the Shopping district and a lot of the attractions in Paris.... More

This hotel was more than perfect : the price, the location, the room, the service, the facilities and the staff - Absolutely everything was good. I was a sole female traveller - and I felt completely at home in the location - really safe in a residential road, reasonably quiet at night for a good sleep. There is an excellent... More

Stayed here recently for two nights and found rooms to be very small! Could barely manage to find room for two average sized suitcases. Didn't really bother us, however, as we were barely there as the majority of our time was spent exploring the sights! Breakfast selection was also very very good!

This was our 3rd visit to Paris so just needed something simple, stayed for the weekend, this hotel is in a great location for shopping as there are two shopping malls just round the corner, you could walk to the champs elysees if you fancy the walk(about 1.5 miles). Or a €10 cab but don't pre book as its more... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and found it a perfect base to see Paris from. The hotel is in a perfect position in a lovely quiet little street but so close to the Metro and Lafayette etc..

I very much enjoyed my stay in this cozy, current hotel. My room was very comfortable, very clean and a good size for being a Parisian hotel. I even had a nice view of the Eiffel Tower in the distance from my window. Convenient walking distance to the Opera house.

This was our home base for an entire week in mid-May and I am so grateful we made that choice. The rooms are modern and clean and well ventilated. We had a courtyard facing room so it was nice and quiet even though we were located in the heart of the Madeline. Breakfast spread was tasty and generous. There was... More

We stayed here for 3 nights largely on the basis of Trip Advisor ratings and comments. It did not disappoint, and in fact, we were very pleased. The staff were very helpful and accommodating throughout our stay. As others have noted, the breakfasts are quite good with an assortment of fresh pastries, meats and cheeses, fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs,... More

The location of the hotel was excellent- close to everything- attractions,shops, metro, restaurants. The free breakfast was good. The staff was most helpful. WiFi worked great. The only downside was the tiny size of the room. I mean- very tiny. But overall I will definitely consider staying in this hotel again.

Of course, we have Parisian size... however, the layout of the rooms is different in all of them (the charms of Parisian buildings , perhaps? :-) ). And also it could be... More

Just returned from another whirlwind trip across Europe and this hotel was the best of all on this trip. Clean, tidy, roomy with all the facilities one would expect.
