We have just had 3 day break in Paris and we decided to go with this hotel. It's really easy to get to from the Eurostar about a 20-25 minute walk which I would recommend doing. Round the corner from the hotel is a mini supermarket, metro, hard rock and great choice of restaurants. The decor is dated but some... More

There was building work going on at the time of our visited. So that was a real shame and maybe it should have been closed. The staff was very helpful. The breakfast and snacks were very good and i would stay there again.... Location was great

The hotel is nice, with very good breakfast for French standards. The location is proper for those who like a agitated neighbourhood with plenty of commerce, restaurants, cafés, theatres and shops. The covered galeries near the hotel are superb, something like shotcuts to avoid going around buildings or entire blocks to cross the streets. The hotel staff is ok, but... More

Well I'm not sure where to start. The hotel is under a full renovation as at 22 April 2016 It is covered in dust. The windows were shrouded and our room was both dusty and filled with a smell of paint. As the renovations 'are only taking 4 weeks', the management did not feel it necessary to put this on... More

The room is on the top floor, up in a Haussmann type style loft, quite big for Paris, plenty of room, The bathroom has been totally refurbished recently, which only enhances the rooms attractiveness.

This hotel is great value for money. We stayed here for three nights. Staff was very very polite and extremely helpful. Only criticism is that the views from the terrace were blocked due to ongoing construction work but other than that everything was just perfect.

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
