“Good, decent, and central”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2007

I have stayed at the Cordelia a couple of times. It's a good, decent hotel in an old building - a fe rooms on each floor round the lift. There's no air-conditioning (at least not in the last room I stayed in) which might be a problem in summer, but otherwise it has everything you would expect of the rooms in a standard, good quality city hotel (including safe and minibar). Staff are very polite, but breakfast is very poor by the standards of other hotels - minimal choice. At present there is scaffolding on the whole facade (but no noise or disruption) because a they are renovating the reception and, I think, providing extra facilities. The hotel is quite dear, but its location is excellent - a stone's throw from the Madeleine and Champs-Elysées and therefore easy to get everywhere else. There are a number of decent restaurants and many shops in the immediate vicinity.

  • Liked — Location; nice staff; nothing particularly bad.
  • Disliked — Breakfast.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2006

We were in Paris when it hit the mid 30s and we were melting. The hotel room kept us nice and cool with its fully working airco - a must for us, with my wife expecting our first child, it could have been a lot worse for her.
Location was very good, in between two well connected metro stations, and very near the grand magasins.
The rooms are small by any standards, but everything worked well. Our rate included breakfast and we found it was adequate, a minor complaint only that eggs are charged extra. All staff were friendly and spoke some english, and the hotel had a good set of brochures and the 'where' guide of all latest info on attractions included in the room was a big help to help us make our final decisions on where to go. Our own guide book was outdated, as museum opening hours have changed.
All in all, a very good experience for us, would go there again, and recommend it to others.

  • Disliked — Small Room

My daughter and myself went over to Paris to 'hit' the SALE'S and give ourselves a treat having a 'do what we want' weekend. The Hotel Cordelia was a haven of peace and comfort, very clean and cared for by the friendly staff. The Breakfast was perfect, a very pleasant lady made us feel welcome and made us fresh coffee etc. nothing was too much trouble. The location of this Hotel was excellent, not far from the Station, Department Stores, Metro, Opera etc. it made the perfect base for our trip. I would not hesitate to recommend it and we will definately stay there again on our next visit to Paris.

This hotel was recommended by a regular business traveller and we were not disappointed. We stayed here twice. Spring for the corner rooms and you will be rewarded with a little extra room and nice views up and down the Opera district streets. The breakfast is probably not worth it but there are so many cafes in the area you do not need it. There is also a great English style pub on the next corner. The shopping of Le Printemps is very close as is the Gare du Nord. Have an espresso and a pain au chocolate and enjoy Paris.

Stayed at the Cordelia for 3 nights 13-16 Feb. Nice hotel, excellent location, staff were very friendly. Only problem was breakfast. There was one poor woman running around trying to keep at least 18 people happy in one go. The breakfast ran out and not stocked up again quickly and for 12 euros I didn't feel was worth the money. Room was quite nice, typical Paris room.

I LOVED the Cordelia Hotel Opera. Quiet, safe neighborhood. Walked to the Arc, Eiffel Tower, American Embassy. Shopped. Wonderful breakfast.
Helpful, English speaking staff. Reasonable price. Clean room. Will stay there every time I go to Paris.
