I was first introduced to this hotel by a colleague years ago and I find it to be an ideally located, well operated standby for trips to Paris. Ideally, I like the larger hotels (The Intercontinental on Rue Scribe, The Park Hyatt) - but to be honest the prices of those properties can be extremely high. I'll splurge for a special occasion but for routing in-and-out trips to Paris, it's hard to beat the Hotel Opera Richepanse.
The location is ideal in a small street (originally rue Richepanse) called rue du Chevalier de St. Georges. Literally a block from Madeline and a few blocks from Opéra. Also very close to the Louvre/Tulleries Gardens and the Seine. There are plenty of good cafes and eateries very close by, as is one of my favorite bars, Harry's.
The hotel itself is in the middle of the block and has an unassuming entrance. The desk staff is always courteous and helpful in meaningful ways (i.e. actually working to get you an early check-in when you arrive early off an overnight flight from the US). The rooms are not particularly spacious, but they do work well and the hotel is very well maintained. Due to the shape of building all rooms that I've seen have windows that open to the street(s).
I've never eaten in the hotel so I can't comment on the breakfast room.
Understand that this is not a grand hotel or a large full-service property. It's a very well located small hotel that offers decent rooms and service. I've recommended the hotel a few time to colleagues.
