“Great location”
Reviewed January 6, 2008

Cordelia was a nice hotel. Small but nicely decorated. My room wasn't so big but it was big enough. Bed was very comfortable. It was very clean. Breakfast was great. It was quite a good choice of food.
There was really nothing that could impress me so much, but I didn't want to be impressed by a hotel. The location was wonderful. Close to the Opera, shopping zone and Champes Eliseyes, Louvre and Concorde.
I would definitely come back!
Maybe the price was too high, but I think it was the location that made it expensive.
In short...great hotel to stay if you want to visit Paris.

Stayed four nights. Rooms were small, which I understand is quite common for Paris hotels. Hotel was very clean; staff very friendly and helpful. In fact service was excellent. Air conditioning was easy to adjust to suit personal preference, a real bonus from our experience of hotels.
When we stayed refurbishment of the foyer area was still in progress but this did not pose any difficulties.
I disagree with previous reviewer’s comments about breakfast. Breakfast is buffet style (not simply continental) so there was fruit juice, cereals, fruits, yoghurts as well as toast, pastries, rolls, etc. Plenty to eat. If you did want eggs then you paid extra, but this was not needed with all that was on offer.
Location is excellent with a metro and train station nearby as well as Opera Garnier, which is the hub for many of the bus routes.
If you enjoy walking, as we do, then hotel is very handy to Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysees, etc. We went as far as Notre Dame and then on to Catacombs on foot and used the bus to return to hotel.
Plenty of excellent restaurants in vicinity as well any where else we went. Nice little bar across road, but as menu is limited, would not recommend it if you want to try the French cuisine. Chez Papa at 29, rue de l'Arcade, 75008, Paris (230 metres from hotel) is well worth visiting for their French cuisine.
All in all a brilliant experience and would most definitely stay at Hotel Cordelia again.

Stayed here only one night on way out of Paris. Hotel lobby was under construction, so it should be even nicer later. Hotel is centrally located, next to good shopping and restaurants. Room was nice and clean, staff was very friendly.

I have stayed at the Cordelia a couple of times. It's a good, decent hotel in an old building - a fe rooms on each floor round the lift. There's no air-conditioning (at least not in the last room I stayed in) which might be a problem in summer, but otherwise it has everything you would expect of the rooms in a standard, good quality city hotel (including safe and minibar). Staff are very polite, but breakfast is very poor by the standards of other hotels - minimal choice. At present there is scaffolding on the whole facade (but no noise or disruption) because a they are renovating the reception and, I think, providing extra facilities. The hotel is quite dear, but its location is excellent - a stone's throw from the Madeleine and Champs-Elysées and therefore easy to get everywhere else. There are a number of decent restaurants and many shops in the immediate vicinity.

  • Liked — Location; nice staff; nothing particularly bad.
  • Disliked — Breakfast.

We were in Paris when it hit the mid 30s and we were melting. The hotel room kept us nice and cool with its fully working airco - a must for us, with my wife expecting our first child, it could have been a lot worse for her.
Location was very good, in between two well connected metro stations, and very near the grand magasins.
The rooms are small by any standards, but everything worked well. Our rate included breakfast and we found it was adequate, a minor complaint only that eggs are charged extra. All staff were friendly and spoke some english, and the hotel had a good set of brochures and the 'where' guide of all latest info on attractions included in the room was a big help to help us make our final decisions on where to go. Our own guide book was outdated, as museum opening hours have changed.
All in all, a very good experience for us, would go there again, and recommend it to others.

My daughter and myself went over to Paris to 'hit' the SALE'S and give ourselves a treat having a 'do what we want' weekend. The Hotel Cordelia was a haven of peace and comfort, very clean and cared for by the friendly staff. The Breakfast was perfect, a very pleasant lady made us feel welcome and made us fresh coffee etc. nothing was too much trouble. The location of this Hotel was excellent, not far from the Station, Department Stores, Metro, Opera etc. it made the perfect base for our trip. I would not hesitate to recommend it and we will definately stay there again on our next visit to Paris.

This hotel was recommended by a regular business traveller and we were not disappointed. We stayed here twice. Spring for the corner rooms and you will be rewarded with a little extra room and nice views up and down the Opera district streets. The breakfast is probably not worth it but there are so many cafes in the area you do not need it. There is also a great English style pub on the next corner. The shopping of Le Printemps is very close as is the Gare du Nord. Have an espresso and a pain au chocolate and enjoy Paris.
