We found the hotel missing even basic amentities like a full door on the shower! The reception area was small and the receptionist was curt. we were not told any details about breakfast etc. The room was cramped wih a double bed, small desk and a frige although this was not even plugged in. The bathroom was the size of a cupboard, you had to stand carefully to even shiut the door.

In the morning we went down and attempted to find the breakfast room which we found was actually on the first floor. The breakfast consisted of one glass of orange juice, one cup of coffee and a bowl of pastries placed on your table. However to be fair it did all taste fine.

The one good thing about the hotel was it is only a couple of hundred metres from the metro which easily gets you to all the attractions. If you are happy with very basic accomodation in a good location then I suppose this would eb a good option. However if you would like some comfort i would go elsewhere.

On a positive note, the hotel is near to the metro and has some good bars and cafes nearby. And is reasonably central. There was hot water and the shower was good.
So here for the negatives! It definitely should not be any more than a 1 star.
It was dirty, cramped, bedding was dirty and damaged, there were no duvets, furniture was stained and worn. There was no hair dryer, no fridge, no tea or coffee facilities, no minibar, no double bed( 2 singles pushed together)
The area is quite 'vibrant' and if you were female it may be a little threatening after dark.
We paid £103 pounds per night for the room only out of season for that, so please try somewhere else.

Room Tip: Try another hotel!!

staff were great. the room had free wifi, hairdryer, powerful shower and air con. the room was small. some people might be intimidated by the area because of the locals but this area is also a popular area for socializing in the evening. 2 minute walk to metro and it will have you in the tourisy places in 5 minutes

We stayed at the Garden Opera last week for 1 night. Its a great location in that the metro is 100 yards away, however if you are looking for quality, look elsewhere. We stayed here as part of a eurostar trip with lastminute.com and it was listed as a 3 star hotel. I would say its more of a 1 - 2 star. There was mould in the bath and sink. The bedspreads were filthy and the fridge was broken and mouldy. It stated that each room had tea/coffee making facilities, a microwave and telephone, but there weren't any in our room. On the plus side the staff were polite.

This place was listed as a three star. It clearly is not. What it is though, is a cute little hotel with a very friendly staff in the middle of a neighbourhood which, at night, is fantastic. During the day this area can become a bit intense, especially for women and I wouldn't recommend staying there alone. However there were three of us and we loved the bar two doors down. The street is noisy, but it's Paris. It had a rainfall shower head and beer in the vending machine; that's really all I would ever want.
Note for couples: make sure you insist on getting a double or queen bed; our room had two twins pushed together.

Room Tip: The street view rooms will be louder.
