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.
"Closed, the day we visited, but still ticked off a lifetime's ambition of seeing it...from the outside."

As a Phantom of the Opera nerd and fan of over the top architecture, it's been a lifelong dream to visit the Opera Garnier. Unfortunately, it was closed for a special event, but the outside is spectacular and I felt sufficiently nerded out. I'll have to go again, clearly.
I have attended two Classictic concerts here in November 2017 and November 2019. The acoustics were very powerful. The Church looks like a Greek Temple on the outside. Inside is spacious. Despite its cavernous appearance, the statue of Mary at the altar is quite luminous and breathtaking. A tremendous amount of history lies within these walls. Well worth the visit.
Browsing this arcade whilst we stayed in the area we came here a few times for groceries from Marks and Spencer and also found this lovely shop where I bought some stone frogs made from minerals I hadn't seen. Worth a look, friendly people and I think there is guided tours of this too.
Gustave Moreau was a symbolist. I found his paintings fascinating and his drawings shows what a master he was.
A visit takes you through his living quarters and then up into his studio.
We bought a joint ticket which included the Jean- Jacques Henner museum - a very different painter.
A very good meal to have a good time in this restaurant. We were lucky to have a place without a reservation. The manager is very attentive and takes the time to explain all the menu proposals (we love it!). Based on advice from other clients when we were there.
In short, you can go there with your eyes closed.
OMG I don't know what to say. I've been here three times, twice with friends and tonight alone... this place is simply unbelievable. I don't usually eat pasta - in fact it's very rare - but I've done so 3 times in 2 months here. It is... absolutely... sublime. Every time I seem to get lucky and get a "today...
My partner and I decided on a Valentine’s weekend in Paris and further, if we were doing it, we’d do it right. My partner chose this hotel based on reviews, not your run of the mill 5 star but something special. She was right.
Arrived early, room ready. Rose petals, champagne and a smile.

An amazing hotel, very well located. The stuff is very kind and professional. This hotel is ideal for both touristic and business trips.
Despite being close to all the touristic attractions, rooms are very calm and chill.
Totally worth to visit!
The hotel treated me well beyond what was required or expected. When a complication arose concerning our travels, I asked for help, and they treated me with kindness and decency. I am very grateful to have booked with these professionals and will stay during my next trip to Paris.
This hotel was super cute right near the Lourve and walking distance to most main attractions in the city. The staff was very friendly and helpful and there were snacks and drinks in the lobby throughout the day which we loved. I would definitely stay here again when we return to Paris!
