“A wonderful small hotel in the heart of Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful five night stay at this hotel and we were sorry to have to leave not just Paris but this hotel.
First class customer service, spotlessly clean room with bathroom lighting that exceeded my wife's expectations. The front desk staff, in fact everyone here truly makes you feel welcome.
Add to that is the central location to just about everything you would want to see and do in Paris either by walking or public transportation makes this the ideal place to rest those weary feet at night.
We will definitely return.

Excellent location, it was about 1 minute walk from the metro station. My husband and I stayed there for 8 nights for our honeymoon in Paris. Nice was clean and comfortable, the hotel staffs were very friendly and professional. The hotel was doing some renovation during our stay but we had no problem at all. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: away from the elevator

This was a nice hotel, clean and spacious rooms. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Personally, I would pick another location of Paris, such as the 4th, 6th or 7th but my friend loved this one, and it worked just fine. The only thing that was annoying was that the room was really hot and the thermostat didn't seem to have an impact on lowering the temperature. However, after notifying staff, it did improve.

Room Tip: We followed advice here and asked for an upper room. We didn't have noise issues that others des...

Bonjour from Paris,

The whole team and I, we are very happy to read that you enjoyed your stay with us.
Everyone, at the Hotel Richepanse, works very hard to maintain the highest level of services.

We are sorry for the issue regarding the heating in your room. We actually have a central heating that we didn't cut due to the very bad weather we had in Paris. Good to hear that the matter has been fixed quickly.

Thank you so much for your time and your nice feedback; we would be very happy to welcome you in the future.

Kindest regards,

Excellent location, close to the Madeleine and metro stations. Minutes from many attractions of Classical Paris . Deluxe room is large, very spacious and comfortable. We chose it mainly because of the Madeleine view - Well, not exactly, to see the corner of Madeleine you have to divert the curtain or open the window - which is not possible because of noise from the street and apartment buildings surrounding the hotel - not how I imagined the look of the Madeleine from this expensive room. Next time I will probably prefer the left bank. Breakfast at the hotel do not justify the price - the street itself has small and excellent places for breakfast. The hotel's facilities are limited - no gym and no bar - but in a bright day the Tuileries Gardens are perfect for Jogging :-)

Room Tip: high floor is much better

Thank you for taking the time to write your comments about your experience at Best Western Premier Opera Richepanse.
As you mentioned it, it is an excellent location; our hotel is located in a small street within 50m of La Madeleine, away from the traffic.

My wife and i stayed here 5 nights and could not be happier with the service and friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them. 5 minutes walk to Place de la Concorde,Tuileries, Louvre, even less to Madeleine metro. Lots of places for breakfast nearby. We are coming back here in June. Our Francaise is rudimentary but the hotel staff all speak great English. from 2 Aussies.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights, and here are my thoughts:

Pros:
- terrific location
- friendly staff, especially the extremely sweet lady that runs the breakfast downstairs. She was amazing.
- clean room
- free WiFi

Cons:
- our room was cold and smelled of smoke
- the ceilings in the room are not friendly to those 6 feet or taller

Overall this is a very good value hotel in Paris, with a terrific location and a friendly staff, but more so a 3.5 star than a 4 star as it is a fairly small/dated hotel.

Thank you Best Western staff for doing such a terrific job to make our stay a good one.

Dear guests,

Thank you for taking the time to write your feedback.

Our hotel is a unique Art Deco design, so it might seem a little bit old fashioned. However it is the spirit of the 1930's.
I guess you had a room with beams on the ceiling, there are a few of them in our hotel. It's also part of the charm of our hotel. Don't forget to mention it if you come back.

The whole staff thank you for remarking the high standard of their job! This is point on which we work very hard to the best satisfaction of our guests.

Kindest regards,

Micheline Denisse

This hotel is quiet and very quaint. Staff are top notch. The location is close to Louvre, D'Orsay, L'Concorde, Champ Elysees, Opera house, Madeleine Church with all the restaurants around as well as the Galeries Lafayette shopping area. Will stay here again when we return to Paris. Hotel currently going under exterior renovations but we were not disturbed at all by the renovations.
