We booked Hotel Palm Opera through Eurostar on a special deal. The reviews on Trip Advisor gave us confidence that it would be a good place to stay, and it certainly was. We walked from Gare du Nord - about 15 minutes and found it very easily. Our room was compact, but had all we needed, with a very comfortable bed and a large shower and probably the cleanest hotel bathroom we've seen. We found the bedroom very warm, but the window opened so we could cool down.
Shortly after arriving we went out to explore Montmartre, a 15 minute walk up the hill, so very well placed for that. On our first full day we walked to the Seine, visited Musee d'Orsay then walked along to the Eiffel Tower. We walked back to the hotel via the Arc de Triomphe. We could easily have used the metro, but by walking we soaked up the atmosphere and saw so much more. By the time we got back to our hotel room we were worn out but happy. The bar area on the ground floor is great - we enjoyed sitting there with our books and the nibbles and drinks provided were much appreciated - and free of charge.
We found a couple of lovely restaurants nearby (L'Atelier Rodier and Hugo) and the location was excellent for us. We enjoyed breakfast on 2 mornings (overslept the first day!) and found the selection available to be varied and very tasty.
Reception was manned 24 hours and the staff were always friendly. They were very kind with my school-girl attempts at French, and all spoke excellent English when needed. We would without hesitation stay at this hotel again, and will certainly recommend it to friends.
