The hotel is in a good location. Breakfast is more than good for the price and Paris standards. Helpful staff is the icing on the cake. Highly recommend to book Folkestone for the stay in Paris! Btw. the best pizza is found on the same street - Pompei Pizza.

We stayed at the Best Western Folkestone Opera for three nights in mid June, 2014. We upgraded to a Double Deluxe room with terrace, which I highly recommend. There was even a box of chocolates with a kind note waiting in the room upon our arrival. The room was large, clean, and on the top floor with great rooftop views and a wonderful way to watch the sunset from the large terrace. We thoroughly enjoyed bringing our delicious free breakfast (baguettes,croissants, Nutella,meats,cheeses,fruit,yogurt,coffee/tea,cereal) up to our terrace and enjoying the wonderful weather we had. The hotel is on a quiet street, but close to the main blvd for easy access to transportation. We loved the location, right near the Madeleine metro line. The metros were a great, fast and cost effective way to get around. We also did an open bus tour which I highly recommend as well. We were able to see all the sights Paris has to offer while still enjoying cafés and even went to Disneyland Paris, which the hotel reception desk helped us with directions and tickets to the theme park. The front desk was very helpful with any questions and spoke excellent English. The hotel was clean, nice staff, great breakfast, safe and beautiful location, and I would highly recommend it to anyone going to the breathtakingly beautiful city of Paris.

We stayed at the Hotel Folkestone Opera for 5 nights in May 2014. We had read reviews on tripadvisor and elsewhere regarding the small rooms. However, a quick search of 3 or 4-star hotels in the vicinity proved that this was a common complaint for Parisian hotels. We decided to go ahead with Folkestone Opera mainly because of its location, and secondly due to the fairly positive reviews on their breakfast.

Our first impression of the hotel was that it was small, yet decent. The concierge area, hallways and our room was clean. We were received by a helpful receptionist. Our room was on the topmost floor and seemed to be recently renovated. The elevator and hallways were very narrow though. However, based on our prior experience in Paris, this did not surprise us. The breakfast was good, but not exceptional, unlike some reviews we had read online. Our only gripe was the poor ventilation in the bathroom and the long time (more than 10 minutes) it took for the water to turn warm. A short shower would end up steaming the bathroom and the bedroom. We were forced to open the room windows to let the steam out! The walls are thick and we could hardly hear any of our neighbors. Overall, we had a comfortable stay. For the right price, we would return here during our next visit to Paris.

We stayed at this hotel for a total of 8 nights over 2 weekends in June. I note that others have criticised the room size and the rooms are small but not the smallest we have stayed in. If you accept that hotel rooms in this part of the world are small rather than generous this is one of the best choices that you could make. From the moment you arrive you are made welcome and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The rooms are very tastefully decorated, are spotlessly clean, and the bed is very comfortable. The location is excellent offering good access to most of the things you wish to do in Paris, and has lots of local shopping and a good variety of restaurants nearby. We particularly enjoyed the Madeleine, Cafe Sud, and the Asian Restaurant Around the corner in Rue Arcade. Should we have the opportunity to visit Paris again we would make the Best Western Folkstone Opera our first choice.

Stayed 5 nights here for a convention. Metro was nearby so it wasn't difficult to reach the palais de congress. Staff was accommodating. If you love shopping, it's the excellent choice for you! As for the sites in Paris, it's perfect cause the louvre is nearby too. Restaurant nearby was great if your fond of Japanese food! It was a splendid stay and I will be back when I travel back to Paris!
