“Simple comfort...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We stayed at the Hotel Sydney Opera one night. We made reservations. We arrived after 9:00 p.m. and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful with no hitches at check-in. This is a small hotel where utilization of space has been maximized. Hallways are somewhat tight when attempting to tow luggage, but it works. As for the room, we found it to be small but efficient, very clean and quite cozy. While we would not recommend the hotel for a long-term (more than 3 night) stay only because the room is quite small, we highly recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Be sure to choose a room away from the elevator and if possible, a room with a street view.

Beautiful boutique hotel, all staff were so helpful. Added touch was chocolates on the first night of our stay. Close walking distance to Place de la Concorde, and the beautiful Grand Opera. Breakfast excellent.

Room was comfortable, but small. Good facilities in the hotel.

Would highly recommend and would stay there again.

Thankyou.

Clean, comfortable, excellent customer service, and a delicious Continental style breakfast with pastries, meats, cheeses, breads, yogurts, etc.

Beds were some of the most comfortable we experienced on our trip; bathrooms were tidy and spacious (very unusual for Paris); rooms were not huge and but perfectly functional and pleasant. No views, pretty flower boxes outside the window which face the courtyard, but you don't go to Paris to stay in your hotel room. Very friendly, and welcoming lobby, and staff mirrored the atmosphere.

Great location near lots of shops including Printemps and Galleries Lafayette, restaurants---loved the Paul Bakery, Gare de St. Lazare, several metro stops, and the starting point for the Green Line hop on hop off bus.

Room Tip: A family of four (kids age 10, 13) will need to get two rooms. Kids LOVED this feature. Rooms are al...

Great little "boutique" hotel in superb location near fashionable shopping area and easy
10 minute walk to Place de la Concorde and River Seine. Reception very helpful with good command of English and nothing too much trouble. Breakfast was adequate but not in the top few of our trip. Only small negative was having to get heavy suitcases up a few steps to the elevator. Plenty of nearby eating options.

Hi from Paris,
We hope you had a nice trip back home!
Thank you for your comment and we are so happy you had a nice time with us.
It’s a pity concerning what you wrote for luggage ; even if we don’t have porter we can help with pleasure when customer have a lot or heavy luggage ; sorry we didn’t realize it when you check-in.

Faultless, from the courtesy and helpfulness of the staff (including the swift maintenance response) to the breakfast range; from the convenient yet quiet location (ideal both for access to public transport and for walking to many of the Paris highlights) to the very comfortable beds and the room facilities. We had a great stay and would certainly stay here again. Free wi-fi really good.

Beautiful hotel and great location. The staff was polite and spoke English readily. Our room was smallish but perfect with a great street view. The bed was extremely comfortable and we slept great. The bathroom was large, immaculately clean and it looked newly remodeled. The breakfast was unexpectedly included in the price and was very nice. Just a quick little trip but the hotel really made the trip worthwhile!

Room Tip: We were on the top floor which meant a short walk up a small spiral-type staircase because the eleva...

Just returned from our 4 day stay in Paris. The staff were very helpful and spoke English on request. The hotel was very clean and the atmosphere was very friendly. On the one rainy day we had they provided umbrellas. We had a late night flight to catch on our last day, they accommodated us by storing our luggage, that way we could make the most of the final day.

Breakfast was varied with options to suit all taste buds. The hotel is also very close to the metro, a huge plus. We managed to see everything due to the ease of travel.
