Dear Salman_Banihashemi, Thank you for your commentary and your compliment about our value. Our room size corresponds to Parisian standards but for your next stay, if you would like more comfort we recommend you to ask for an upgrade in double superior room. Actually, our superiors are significantly bigger for a really small extra charge so it could be advantageous... More

This is in my mind a very basic hotel, the decor of the rooms, the breakfast selection and the front of house staff. Don't bother with breakfasts, there are many cafes in walkable distance that are much better. The location is good, it's not too far to get to the HOHO buses, a laundromat is in the same street. I...

The location was excellent! It was right outside the Folies Bergère in Opera quarter and close to 3 metro stations!

Cheap, good location, quite area of city. The room was clean and I slept really well; but the room was a bit small, although I didn't spend any 'spare time' in it, I only slept in it, so the size wasn't an issue for me. I would happily stay there again.

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.
