This Hotel offers everything you need when traveling with a love one to Paris, it is near everything you want when in Paris. It is walking distance from Louvre, Eiffel Tower, LaFayette stores, Arch of Triumph and other attractions. It has two very good cafes just in front.

Room Tip: Room with windows offers a great view

This hotel was perfect and has everything you would need when staying in Paris. We've stayed in Paris often but have to say this was the best Hotel we remember for many years. The staff were so helpful, our room was lovely and was stocked with everything you would need plus it had good air conditioning. The situation was good too - very quiet and very close to the Metro and all the attractions including being close enough to Opera where we took the Roissy bus to the Airport - it was close enough to walk even with cases.
We had the continental breakfast as we felt the English breakfast was a bit expensive - but it was quite adequate and healthier as well..
We would definitely return...THANK YOU!

First time in Paris, and what a great find this was. Loved the staff, small hotel, friendly helpful staff, we stayed there while cruising the British Isles in May and I could not say enough good things about the hotel. The room was a very good size, very clean, comfortable, nice upgraded bathroom. Great central location. Small intimate restaurant for breakfast which turn out to be a better bargain than eating outside. A bit pricey but hey, this is Paris, it was worth it. I will stay there again.

We stayed for 1 night in this hotel and were very pleased with it.
This check-in was fast and hassle-free, the staff very friendly and helpful.
The location is great, not far away from the Louvre and close to the subway station.
Highly recommended!

The hotel is in a fantastic location. Very close to Champs and the Madelaine Church as well as the corner of the Louvre Property. If location on a smaller budget is important stay here for sure. If you have no budget stay at Le Bristol.

The street name is not well known with the taxis because it is called Florintine as it intersections with Rivoli (a major route) but they all have GPS systems and often laughed once they saw where it was located as they drive by it many times each day.

The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They do not go 'above and beyond' but they are definitely helpful and attentive when asked questions. They seem to have some standard recommendations for restaurants very close to the hotel.

The room was very clean and comfortable. Small by north american standards and yet bigger than I had anticipated - but I have travelled Europe in the past and so was pleasantly surprised with the size. The furnishings are slightly dated (brown carpet, etc) but they are very clean.

Wifi connection was challenging from the room most of the time but got better on the last day for sure.

The Metro runs underground and so we could hear and feel it. Nothing to worry about. I almost mistook it for a quite thunderstorm but quickly realized what it was. It is not disruptive but if you are a very light sleeper, bring earplugs otherwise I'm sure it will not be a problem.

Other things to know:
- museum line ups are huge on Sundays as the French stores are closed. Thankfully we went on a Friday to the Louvre around noon and strolled in without a line. Sunday is a good travel day if you can plan it that way.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a view of the Madelaine Church if you can.

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for your time to write this comment. It is so nice to read your great experience with us.

You were surprised with the size of room. Yes, we have the rooms quite big for the French standards: classic – 17m², superior - 24 m² and deluxe – 30 m². Our North American guests are very happy with the deluxe room.

Concerning the wifi connection, I will check with our provider in order to improve it.

Important information for the funs of shopping: the only shops opened on Sunday you can find on les Champs-Elysées and in les Marais district.

Best wishes from Paris and hope to see you soon.

We stayed at the Premier Opera Richepanse one night when we arrived in Paris, and the next day we rented a car to drive to Caen, France. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, unlike the Hotel Westminster Opera where we stayed upon our return from Caen several days later.

The rooms were nice but were quite unique; somewhat low ceilings and eclectic decor.

Dear Guest,
I see, we did a good job because you keep on mind our hotel just after 1 night stay. Thank you !

We are a boutique hotel with a unique Art Deco style in the building form XIX century. We have the rooms with a high and a lower ceiling. It was always the hotel form 1807 and later, in the 1880s, a very distinguished guest, the Russian composer Piotr Ilitch Tchaikovski stayed for several long periods at the hotel, which was then called the Hotel Richepanse.
Thank you very much for your time to write this feedback and we are waiting for you for a longer stay.
Warm regards,
Justine Mihci

Great location on the Right bank. easy walking to Champs and shopping. Roioms were large for Paris and the bathroom was clean. Breakfast was nice in the cellar but not cheap but it is the Right bank. Very friendly and accomodating staff.

Dear guest,

Thanks for taking the time to write your comments. We are actually on the right bank but very close to the river.
By the way within 2 minutes you can find yourself at the the botom of Les Champs Elysées, however if you cross the river you will find Le Musée d'Orsay just in front of you...for sure it's a great location!
You have also pointed out our large rooms; thanks for remarking that. Our superior room is 24 m2 and our Deluxe 30m2, which is not so common in Paris.
Be sure that the whole staff of Best Western Premier Opera Richepanse will be very happy to see you again.

Kind regards,

Micheline
