Best Western Hotel Folkestone Opera

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 August 2013

It was our first trip to Paris, and what a nice trip it was. This hotel is located in perfect (in my opinion) location, we walked to all attractions: Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triumph and many more. All reviews that you read say it all (excellent). Staff members are helpful and very friendly, rooms are a bit small (but what for you will need a big room for) but very comfortable and always clean, breakfast is more than enough. I'm planning another visit to Paris and this hotel is on the top of my list. I do recommend it for any type of visit short or long.

Room Tip: It looks as rooms on level 6 are with nice small balcony's where you sit and relax.

The Folkestone Opera Best WEstern is the BEST hotel I have ever stayed in my last 25 years of traveling in Europe. The staff was always helpful and polite.....no more than helpful and more than polite, the breakfast was lovely.....and the overl all ambience!!! Wow! It is the cleanest hotel in the world! The rooms are lovely and the location is unbeatable.....a 10 minute walk to the Louvre.....less than 5 minutes to the department stores and lovely cafes and patisseries!

We've tried quite a number of accommodation options in Paris over the years, but this one is by far the best for the price. The rooms are well appointed and the bathrooms are quite big by Paris's standards. The staff are wonderful and friendly and speak excellent English. The location is great, especially if you are in Paris to shop, as you can easily walk to the famous department store, Galerie Lafayette on Bld Haussman.
The breakfast was excellent, offering a lot of choices and they have a real espresso coffee machine, which my husband was very happy about. (France isn't known for making a good coffee, especially compared to what Australians expect these days).
The hotel is set off the main road too, so you don't get any street noise even if your room is on the road side.

We stayed here at the tail end of the trip our only regret was we wish we had chosen it at the beginning as well. Rooms are spacious, clean and they offer a great breakfast! I would make this my first choice again next time I am in Paris.

This hotel was simply wonderful, We stayed for 8 nights and had a beautiful experience. Fantastic quiet location yet easily accessible. A short walk to the metro, Place de Concorde, cafe"s, restaurants. The hotel is clean, stylish ,cozy and comfortable. Fantastic breakfast , attentive professional staff. This hotel set the tone for a wonderful Paris vacation experience. We felt like it was our home. Thank you to the staff and the organization. When we return this will be our first choice.

Room Tip: Beautiful hotel, just enjoy

Me and my wife stayed in this hotel on August 2011.It was very nice, clean and very near of the centre of Paris.We took a big walk (15km) and could reach all main atractions of Paris. If possible ask for a room located to the front of the Hotel or you will see only a building evertime you wake up.

We stayed here for two nights and were very impressed by this hotel. Though small, it had everything you could need, including a great location. It's minutes away from Galerie Lafeyette, Place Concorde and the metro. Breakfast was included and had what we would be looking for. The rooms are a little small, but more than enough space for us. We were a family of four and had booked one room with 4 beds. However, there was some sort of mix up and we learned the day before our arrival that this room was not available. However, for the same price we were provided with two rooms right next to each other. Even better. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I would definitely consider staying here again.
