“What a great 3* hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

This is a great little hotel with a central location, which is clean, comfortable and modern. Everything is on the small side (but then things in Paris are generally a bit of a squeeze - even for a Londoner!) but it's been well thought out and is very comfortable. The room was modern, with extremely comfortable twin beds and tasteful decoration. The room faced onto the street, which is a little noisy, so if you're a light sleeper bring earplugs. The bathroom was small but clean and modern. The service was very friendly and the front desk staff really went out of their way to help. We arrived before check-in time so went for a walk and lunch and came back to find that our luggage had been taken up to our room, which was a nice touch. On departure, we were running a little late for our Eurostar back to London so called the hotel who ordered us a taxi and had the luggage waiting for us so we could just grab it and go.

For the price (we got a deal with Eurostar), I could not recommend this hotel enough. I'm just surprised it's not a 4*! We will definitely be recommending it to friends and family.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Very nice hotel in a good location, near metro, suburban trains, great shopping (or window shopping), cafes and restaurants. Short walks to Opera, Concorde, Champs, Seine, etc... Staff was very helpful and patient with our small English speaking groups. A simple, timesaving breakfast is included. I believe it is connected with the smaller BW Folkstone in the same area ( same manager I believe). She is doing a good job here as this Hotel is very comfortable.
Good for individuals, not groups as not large enough and streets in area are to tight for large shuttles or buses.

Room Tip: Don't worry about small elevator comments if you are able to use stairs when in a hurry.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights in September 2013 and we were very satisfied with all standards of the hotel. The staff were friendly, helpful and informative. The room was well equipped and very clean. The position is quite good. We would recommend this hotel to any traveller looking for a great stay at a moderate price. We would not hesitate in staying there again.

Room Tip: All rooms are pretty good.

One of the most expensive 3-star hotel in Paris but offer very strategic location near business district (traffic is quite a hassle during mid-weekdays), near to shopping area and Metro. Very small lift doesnt accommodate 3 of us; the room is quite small as usual parisian hotels. Really friendly staff most of them are fluent in English: It also provide airport transfer at 18 Euro per person. Really enjoy the breakfast too.

Room Tip: Room at ground floor, so you dont need to use the lift

Good morning from Paris. Thank you to taking time to wrote your comment.
We don’t understand your position concerning «one of the most expensive 3 stars hotel in Paris » ??!!!!
You have to know that our room rate is maximum 295€ in hight season ; believe us is really not the most expensive 3 stars rate in Paris !!!!!! that’s the low average rate for a 3 stars hotel in the center of Paris.

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.

We have different size of room and it’s true we don’t have the space that you can have in Colorado, unfortunately for us and for Paris…
Thank you to taking time to wrote a comment, have a nice weekend
