Why does this stand out? It's just off Haussmann/near Opera but on a quiet road, so it's relatively peaceful. The room is spacious - no tripping over the end of the bed or hitting your elbow in the bathroom! The design has a calm, contemporary feel (lots of attention to detail, such as the mural on the inner courtyard wall,... More

a modern hotel located within walking distance to many of the famous attractions. Room a bit small, good size bathroom, but had everything we needed. Air con is a bit of an issue. The rooms are controlled by reception and can either be turned off if set to a Winter or changed in the warmer months. We slept with the... More

Last time we visited Paris, my wife and I stayed at the K & K hotel, which is superb and highly recommended. On a slightly tighter budget this time, we decided to try the Chess Hotel based on some good reviews on this website. To be fair, it has quite a bit to recommend it - a central location, excellent...

Conveniently located, and very clean! Air condition works perfectly, house keeping did a great job everyday, showers are spacious, and the service was congenial. By Parisian standards, the space of the rooms are quite nice, and the beds were very comfortable.

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.
