In the world capital of 2 star hotels, the New Orient must be one of the best. On past visits to Paris I/we have stayed on the left bank, generally as close to Boulevard St. Germain as cost dictates. This time, on my own, I deliberately stayed on the other side of the river in a part of town that I was not familiar with. I was not disappointed.
The New Orient is a bright little establishment close to both Villiers and Rome Metro stops and barely 1km from Saint Lazare station. The Opera district is in close proximity and in the other direction the charms of Montmatre; an area I was delighted to re-visit after a gap of nearly 12 years. Paris is compact and easy to get around so where you actually stay is not always that vital. This however, is a good spot.
The Hotel was clean and well appointed for a 2 star establishment, the staff friendly and helpful. The room was small (it is Paris after all) but all the amenities were present, including free wi-fi and several digital TV channels (other Hoteliers please note). It was quiet and breakfast perfectly fine.
All in all, very happy to recommend and thanks to my fellow contributors who steered me in this direction. Very tempted to rank the hotel as Excellent but certainly very good +. You will not be disappointed, particularly if you a bit of a Francophile like me.
