Room much bigger, smarter, cleaner, quieter, better-appointed than I had been expecting, given other TripAdvisor reviews and the central location of the hotel. Turn off the Rue de Clichy (5 mins walk from Metro station Place de Clichy), and all of a sudden you are in a different world: quiet; residential; boulangerie on the corner ...

Teaching for a Business School in Paris, I was hosted in that hotel. The staff is very kind and decent. Food is so-so. Rooms incredibly small. The area is lively, full of small shops and restaurants. A large public parking isn't far. Probably a place I'll soon forget

Le Cardinal is a decent hotel is a decent neighborhood of Paris. Unfortunately, for us, the bar next door was open until 2 in the morning (Sunday) on the Saturday night we stayed. Normally this would not be a big problem if you can keep your windows closed. The air conditioning in this hotel is configured so that if the... More

This hotel is great value for money. It is close to cafés, restaurants, underground stations or for a stroll into central, Paris. The rooms are large enough, the bed comfortable and the breakfast quite good. All of the staff are always friendly and helpful. Our only problem occurred with the shuttle bus they seed to transport us to the airport.... More

I chose this hotel because of its location and walked everywhere except when we went to Notre-Dame. We rented a family room which was extremely quiet and larger than I imagined it would be. The bathroom was also quite large and well appointed with a hairdryer and mirror. The room had air con, was clean, comfortable with a large flat... More

Small hotel, with quite small rooms. However, rooms are clean, quiet and nice (even though not luxurious). Very helpful and kind personnel. The location is great as it is located in a small dead-end street with no street noise (a real luxury in downtown Paris). Very close to Montmartre and Pigalle, without the hustle and bustle. Easy access to a... More

This was a nice hotel. It was clean and bathrooms were spacious. Beds were comfortable and the breakfast was good. We needed to take the metro to get to many of the tourist attractions which was okay. I would recommend and stay again.

Beautiful hotel near Place du Clichy. Good location, near good restaurants and near a metro station. I recommend you to use the metro service to stay in this hotel, the hotel is far from the famous touristic points, like Eiffel Tower. The Internet wifi service needs to be better, the signal in the room is weak. The beds are good... More

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.
