Hotel position is close to many attractive spots in Paris. Hotel members are extremely kind. They offer cakes and tea each afternoon for free. Some noise may arrive from the street even late in the night due to some vine bar. Rooms are quite comfortable

We arrived late at night by taxi and the front of the hotel was unlit in a dark street. Check-in was fine but it was a squeeze to get 2 of us + luggage into the minute (900x600mm) lift. Corridors and stairs need redecorated but the room was really good. Room - Large comfy bed, easily congtrolled lighting, good TV...

this was my first visit to a happy culture hotel in Paris. the staff was super friendly and amazing. the lifts are a bit small, but since this was not the only hotel i stayed at in Paris, i know that most hotels in the city have small lifts. the rooms were cosy and the beds were quite comfortable.

I stayed one night at this hotel but was booked for two with my teenage daughter. The hotel is tiny, a young lady appeared and checked us in, pleasant enough. I was meant to have a bottle of wine in my room which never appeared. We were put right at the top on the sixth floor in a tiny pokey...

We have just returned from an excellent three-day short break at this hotel. As others have commented, it is ideally positioned very close to the centre of Paris, but within relatively easy walking distance of La Gare du Nord, Eurostar station. On first arrival we were somewhat concerned to learn that the hotel had no record of our booking, made...

A great little hotel, very usefully located in a lovely area of Paris. Clean and comfortable rooms, very friendly staff and lovely breakfasts. The free afternoon "Happy Hour(s)" was an added bonus which wasn't obvious until we arrived there. We will definitely be staying there again.

We have just had 3 day break in Paris and we decided to go with this hotel. It's really easy to get to from the Eurostar about a 20-25 minute walk which I would recommend doing. Round the corner from the hotel is a mini supermarket, metro, hard rock and great choice of restaurants. The decor is dated but some...

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood 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, theatres, 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.
