“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

We visited Paris after spending several days in Normandy. Normandy being so quiet and Paris being so busy however Hotel Daunou is a very peaceful and relaxing spot to stay in beautiful Paris. We could not find one fault with the hotel or staff and when we return to France we will not hesitate on booking the Hotel Daunou again. As previous reviews state the hotel is situated in the ideal spot in Paris to cover just about everything. The breakfast was 1st class so pay for this option when you make your booking. Travelling from airport I would recommend taking the bus to Opera - and going back Hotel Daunou will book you a mini bus at a very reasonable cost. Cannot wait to return. Eleanor and Gordon Scotland

The hotel is located near opera metro station so moving around is very easy. The room is clean and nicely furnished. The staffs are also very friendly. Will definitely stay here again when I am back in Paris.

We were looking for a nice small hotel in the city center.
This hotel located next to the Opera, offering 3 metro lines. There are also many restaurants and bars in the hotel street and the streets next to it.
We walked from the hotel to the Louvre, Galeries Lafayette, the Concorde and Tuileries gardens, all very close.
We didn't take the breakfast at the hotel ( they asked for 18 Euro for it...), but there are many cafe's and bakeries close by.

If you are looking for a hotel that is easily accessible by public transport with lots of shopping and restaurants around the hotel, this hotel is for you.

Pros:
- Great location
I came by the metro from Paris est train station. It was really an easy metro ride by line 7. I had a big lugguage so it helps that there is an escalator at the exit of the metro station. The hotel is 3 min walk from the exit.

Went to CDG Airport by Roissy bus which is around less than 10 min walk away. It was super convenient.

- Friendly staff
Service with a smile. Wonderful hotel staff!

- Quiet room
We sleep like baby :)

- Spacious room
Booked the superior room. And it was spacious considering we had 2 big lugguage and there was still enough space for both of us to move around easily. There is a double bed and a single bed in the room.

- Clean and well-maintained room

Cons:
- Luggage storage security
This hotel is almost perfect. However, I hope that they can improve by issuing a lugguage tag for redemption of lugguage. Although the storage room is locked, they did not verify if we were the rightful owner of the lugguage. The hotel staff just opened the locked door and we just take our lugguage and go.

Highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Paris.

Booked by my daugter, this was going to be a surprise whatever the outcome. It is understated compared to all the grand hotels in the vicinity and tucked away in a narrow little lane. We relied heavily on the comments on Tripadvisor when deciding and were not let down. The descriptions were accurate and dependable.

The staff were very friendly, very helpful, had great local knowledge and spoke fluent English. We were able to drop our luggage in pre check in and the room was more than sufficient for my wife, daughter and myself. We took the advice re the front rooms (which right on cue were automatically booked into). We asked politely for an alternative, waited for 5 minutes while someone spoke to someone else and voila - an extremely quietly located room which provided us with excellent sleep. The beds were spot on as well.

We were looking for location, economy and a 3 bed room with good, clean amenities - Hotel Daunou Opera delivered. Great breakfast, lunch and dinner options all around within 1-5 minutes level walk - we loved the choice and loved the food - and very reasonably (cheap by Australian standards) priced. An easy 15 minute level walk to the Louvre and Jardin de Tuilleries, shops all around, another 5-10 to D'Orsay across the river. In the other direction, 5-10 minutes to L' Opera, 10 more to the Paris Hard Rock Cafe. Moulin Rouge, Arc de Triomphe, Nortre Dame, Eiffel Tower are all about 5-10 Euros away in a taxi in each direction. It's a great location.

I rate this with five dots because it suited us perfectly. It is a boutique hotel and will suit most travelers not needing 5 star services. We recommend thoroughly.

Spent 3 nights at Daunou Opera end of August'12. On first impression the hotel is very small, just a door way on the street next to a bar but upon entering it we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel staff were all excellent no matter what time of day, we travelled as a family and they were wonderful with my daughter. We stayed in a triple room on the top (6th) floor, the room was spacious and clean, with a good sized bathroom. Both bedrooms had a flat screen tv mounted on the wall, a mini bar if you needed anything and a hairdryer in the bathroom. Towels were replenished daily and the room cleaned, beds made up nicely, we didn't take breakfast in the hotel but found Starbucks near the Louvre, along with numerous places down the back streets.

The Opera House and metro were under 5 minutes walk and the Louvre took only 10/15 minutes to walk to also. This was my first time staying in the Opera area, I felt safe at all times even returning late at night, the area can be expensive but we found pletny of nice places to eat and there's a supermarket not too far.

I would gladly return to this hotel and would recommend it for families, singles and couples alike. The road has several lively bars that I would have loved to try had I not been travelling with a child and the noise didn't disturb us at all.
