we stayed here for 3 nights and loved the location, just 5 minutes walk from the lovely Montmartre Village. Breakfast was included which included pastries, crepes, eggs and ham, yoghurts and cheeses, as well as various types of breads. Room was fun and quirky, and although the street was pretty busy, the double glazing was very good and we didn't...

I booked with this hotel based on the other Trip Advisor reviews and I wasn't disappointed. I stayed for five nights. The location is excellent - a five-minute stroll (or three-minute brisk walk) to Blanche metro, Moulin Rouge, a small department store, and numerous adult shops. Further up the hill are many eateries and souvenir shops. About 20 minutes up...

Me and my husband went to Paris for our year wedding anniversary and found this hotel. Had previously read trip advisor reviews which were all really positive. When we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff who offered us coffee and then sat with us and helped go over a map (which was such a help and we used this...

And I have been to Paris many times! Was a bit unsure at the time of my booking as this hotel was ranked in the Top10 and the price for room was kind of decent. Eventually I can only confirm its level. Location is good considering Paris is not a small town (close to Mouline Rouge, to Metro Blanche, 10...

I have never stayed in an Astotel hotel and i must say there is some cleverness in their model. There is snacks and drinks buffet available at this hotel and other astotel hotels, which means you can check out the hotels in the group as well as reenergised with food and drink before treading the pavements of Paris. This hotel...

The Hotel Joke was a pleasant surprise. When we checked in, Sophia welcomed us like a good friend. She sat down with us, offered coffee, told us about the neighborhood, showed us where some good restaurants were and answered questions. She set the mood for a wonderful stay! Our room was very comfortable and amazingly quiet. The breakfast is nice....

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It is modern and clean with a staff who pays attention to detail and is very welcoming. The room was comfortable and included a kettle and mini fridge. The hotel lobby is small but offers drinks and pastries/fruit. I liked the lightheartedness of the decor. The biggest selling point for me before arriving...

My daughter booked this hotel for me, but refused to tell me anything about it. What a wonderful surprise! Located in Montmartre, a few blocks from the Moulin Rouge, it's easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the metro. First, security is terrific. You must be buzzed in and out of the main door. We were met by a bubbly...

We knew nothing about paris, but decided to stay here based off of reviews here and on other websites. As other writers have indicated it's close the metro which is a plus and close to the Moulin Rouge, which is another plus...literally you can see the bright lights immediately upon exiting the hotel. The entire staff was fun and engaging,...

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.
