“Yes but not if you claustrophobic”

Yes but not if you claustrophobic
Very clean
Breakfast was just okay
Elevator is so small!
You have to use the stairs most of the times
And if you have problems with stairs get a room in a lower floor

We stayed here for three nights and found this hotel to be very clean, comfortable and spacious by Parisian standards. The bed was very firm and felt new. The staff was very friendly and the location is outstanding. There are places to get fruit and a bakery on the street. You are just a few book is walk from a main metro line and the place de la Concorde. The breakfast is a bit sparse and basis, not a large fancy spread, but it was nice enough for us. I would definitely this for vacationers or people on business in that area of Paris.

Position close to all facilities was superb. Staff were all above average and well worth the stay. 3 blocks from the Seine River. Walking distance to the Eiffel Tower. Plenty of local restaurants to dine at. Major shopping centers close by.

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.
