Let's go straight to the point, an Ibis hotel is not a luxury hotel. If you expect marble floors and expensive artwork on the walls, you will be disappointed. However, if you expect a clean and comfortable room in a good location, this is exactly what the Ibis Paris Opera la Fayette will provide you with.
We came in on a early Monday morning after landing at Charles De Gaule airport. From the airport, the best way to go is to take the RER B to Gare du Nord and then take the metro to Gare de l'Est and then to Cadet. From the Cadet metro station, the hotel is a 3 minute walk, taking into consideration the fact that you have luggage.
The Ibis is located on rue Buffault, a very small street on which there are at least 2 other hotels. The neighborhood is very calm at night and we found pleasant the fact that we could sleep with the window open.
Our room was located on the second floor of this 8 stories hotel. Looking at the floor plan, I guess that we had the biggest room on that floor. The beds were comfortable, although it was two twin beds attached together. You better not like sleeping in the middle of the bed! In the bathroom was a shower with good pressure and a lot of hot water. In fact, we never ran out of hot water.
The hotel was recently renovated so the furniture and bathroom were in a very good condition. The stucco walls were a bit old, but nothing was falling apart.
We were overall very very satisfied by this hotel as our rate (which was the regular rate) was around 115 euros per night, taxes included. The place was very clean, near a subway station and two grocery stores and a 10 minute walk to the opera, we could not have asked for more.
I would definitely go back there.
