I have just returned from a 3 night break in Paris staying at Millennium Opera.
The hotel is very well connected if your trip is for sight-seeing in the magnificent city of Paris.
As previous users have commented, the nearest metro station, Richelieu Drouot, is literally a 100 yard walk from the front entrance of the hotel.
The metro system in Paris is excellent, trains arrive every few minutes and a single ticket is around 1.40 euros per person per journey, which is considerably cheaper than the London tube! I believe travel passes are available but for us, they did not seem to offer as good value as just buying individual tickets because we tended to use the metro to get where we needed to go and then either stay in that vacinity for most of the day, or travel on the Batobus (Seine boat trip), for which we bought a two day pass costing only 14 euros each. The boat stops at most of the attractions that anyone visiting Paris, at least for the first time, will want see, including the Eiffel Tower (this is the first stop), Notre-Dame, the Louvre etc.
Back on the hotel, our room (614) was fairly 'compact', but it was clean and comfortable and the shower in the en-suite bathroom was very good (and easy to operate... Complicated showers are one of my biggest bug-bears!)
All in all I would say that the Millennium Opera is an ideal base for seeing the city due to its convenient position. From what I saw, it is well maintained and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The only reason I cannot award five stars is because I am unable to comment on the quality of the meals provided by the hotel - I booked our stay on a room only basis. If you are planning on doing the same, there are a wide selection of restaurants, bars and cafes within a stone's throw of the hotel on Boulevard Haussman.
