Hotel Helder Opera
Ranked #1,169 of 1,804 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This hotel is one of the small enterprises for budget visitors. It is small and they even not have the usual entrance space. I spend there one night only being caught by problems with another hotel. I was nicely placed in the clean room with full functioning equipment. It was what I was there for.

Room Tip: Dont pretend for any special services - just rooms

Do not stay at this hotel! This is the type of hotel where I did not want to take off my shoes. I couldn't tell whether the carpet was gray or brown. Other than location, this hotel should be avoided even at 90 euros a night. The room is dark and dingy,despite facing the front of the hotel with French doors to the street. Be warned.

Located close to L'Opera, Hotel Helder provided a convenient stay for a business overnight stopover in Paris. 5-stars it is not but somehow they shoehorned 22 rooms into 6 floors into this little side street hotel. We stayed on the 6th floor which is in the roof, served by a lift. The room configuration was unusual, being constrained by the slopping roof and was pretty compact with little circulation space and odd windows. The bed was comfortable and all the usual mod cons were provided.

I did not stay in the hotel too long to comment further and will probably not stop over next time I visit Paris, preferring something a little more up market, but in Paris there is a shortage of hotel rooms sometimes and prices certainly reflect this.

Probably one more suited to a dirty weekend than a business trip!

Room Tip: Avoid 6th floor as it is in the roof!

The hotel has No Lobby at all and no place for 4 persons to stand together to talk. The rooms are NOTHING LIKE THE WEBSITE. They are not clean and are very old. The bathrooms are not like the ones in the photos on the website, they are extremely small, not that clean and some of them had the toilet in a separate area????The hotel was very old (bath- and bedroom both). The entrance to the room was extremely strange with very stupid corridors; the door did not close very well and there was no lock. The electricity plugs were defficient and their distribution across the room did not seem very safe.We stayed for 8 days, and our 4th day we found a RAT in one of our rooms and they changed the room for us. The airconditions were very poor and one of the them flooded the room with water.
If I am ever back in Paris I would NEVER stayt there and I would certainly NEVER recommend it to ANYONE.

STAY AWAY from this dirty hotel, it's full of MOUSE, unhealthy/unsanitary. During my one week stay in this hotel, I've seen many times lots of mouse everywhere in the hotel: rooms, bathroom, corridors. Also, I've seen lots of tourists who had left the hotel quickly after one day stay, as, they've seen MOUSES in their room.

The hotel is very run-down, dirty, deliberated. The pictures in the website don't match at all and reflect the reality. Most rooms rooms are really run-down, dirty wlls with a lots of dirty marks, and carpets completely dirty and deliberated. The hotel hasn't AT ALL 3 stars hotels standard. I don't know who is this stupid person who gave 3 stars to this dirty hotel ??????????

Unacceptable, I've changed the room 3 times within one week of stay. The Manager didn't seem to be embaressed, and he found it "normal" to see mouses in the hotel in Paris, he told me"we can see very often the mouses in the hotels even in the 4 or 5 stars hotel"!!!! (which is not true at all).

Disgusted by this issue, I couldn't accept this situation, Finally, I decided to complain to the FRENCH HIGH COURT and authority in France for hygiene inspection. The hotel's director, instead of apologise and make a compensation for spoiling my holiday, he tried to put me out, by cheating me. On the 12Th July, after one week stay, he came to my room, and lied to me that "if you leave the hotel right now, I don't charge you!!!!!". I trust him, and packed my luggage on his presence in the room, and when we arrived to the reception, he locked the entrance door, and he picked up a bill from his pocket and told me" I don't let you go out, until you don't pay this bill"!!!!!I WoooW, I was really chocked, I couldn't believe by my eyes what was happening. I told him my booking ends on the 16Th July not now(12Th), you asked me if you leave the hotel right now, I don't charge you any thing, and, now, you accuse me going out without paying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

We called to the POLICE who came and resolve the problem. It was the worst experience of my life.
I had complain to the French CROWN COURT for confinement of a tourist by this hotel and Unhygienic/unsalubre hotel. STAY AWAY FROM THERE, You will fell much better.
