Striving to create a wonderful and memorable wedding anniversary for my husband and I, we made reservations for three nights at this establishment. What a mistake! The room reminded me of that Geico (sp?) commercial that is presented in the form of “clips” a new “reality” TV show about a married couple that is made to live in an apartment that is extremely tiny for a year…the commercial goes on to reveal how the small space plays with temperaments resulting in great anxiety and obviously arguments! As my husband is quite tall, and the room quite small…we became that couple in this space! It was terrible, and not good at all for our marriage…we are in fact still recovering! Placed next to what appeared to be a service kitchen, we joked that the only reason we were able to afford to stay at the hotel was because they made a special rate for the “new Opera guest room” created from what was probably until very recent the food storage closet. “Yes, we in the room where the peas were stored last year!” This of course was just a joke, as we have no idea about the history, renovations or conversions ever made at the hotel.
The following are some of our additional observations:
•Fairly centrally located
•Close walk to Metro station
•Close walk to Opera
•Many restaurants near by
•Rather large bathroom
•Nicely decorated bathroom
•Fairly nice staff, pleasant, always smiling!
•Room too small for two people
•so small double bed was pushed against wall so create place to walk
•uncomfortable double bed
•Difficult to find a place to stow our luggage
•Yes elevator is small too (as someone mentioned on this site earlier)…but so what, they all are in Paris!
In summary, if small spaces are not a worry for you, then this hotel may suit your needs. Have a great trip!
