Best Western Anjou Lafayette Opera
Ranked #658 of 1,803 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 October 2013

We just concluded our stay at the Best Western Anjou Lafayette Opera and were pleasantly surprised.
We stayed in a room with 2 single beds that was very clean and tastefully decorated. The room was small, but still plenty of room for a desk and chair, as well as another sitting chair. The room included a small wardrobe, chest and two bedside tables. There was still room for our suitcases on the floor/stand. The television was new and the bathroom was updated and included a tub with a shower. The windows opened up to a tiny flower balcony, too small to stand on, but very pretty.
Some of the things we liked the most were the location, the lobby and the close proximity to the metro. The hotel was on a very quiet side street. With the windows shut we could barely hear any traffic and so had a great night's sleep. There was an air conditioner. However, we did not need one since it was October. Street noise is a huge negative for us whenever we stay most anywhere in Europe. It was wonderful to not have to listen to traffic or trash trucks. Our room was at the end of the corridor, so we also had little to no noise from the hotel itself. We hardly ever heard anyone above us. A very good night's sleep. The beds were a little harder than American beds, but very comfortable and with clean, starched sheets. Excellent maid service.
The lobby was small, but had wonderful sofas and seating areas to congregate with friends. We came with another family and though there wasn't space in our rooms to sit and talk, the lobby was fabulous and comfortable for sitting and talking about our adventures.
The metro was a very short, easy walk from the hotel. Our party included 2 women and 2 teenage girls, so we were concerned about the walk to and from the metro after dark. However, we always felt safe, as there were plenty of restaurants and businesses open. From the Metro Cadet, we were able to get to the Louvre within 3 metro stops without transferring lines. Eiffel's Tower and other sights were within a 20 minute metro ride. Paris' metro was very easy to navigate once you understand it.
All in all, we were very pleased with our stay at Anjou Lafayette Opera. There was a problem with the wifi internet during our stay. We were unable to get online in our room, but were able to sit in the lobby and wirelessly check our email or look online for tickets. Just a small inconvenience. We would definitely stay at the Best Western Hotel Anjou Lafayette Opera in the future.

Room Tip: Request a room at the end of the corridor. The elevator is in the middle.

We stayed in Anjou Lafayette Opera for 4 days on December 2011 for Xmas. The hotel is very pleasant. The location is very good; near Rue La Fayette and close to Cadet metro station, also walking distance from Gare du Nord if you're planing to came from airport to city center by train. Our room was tiny but lovely decorated clean and very nice. Bathroom was clean. Staff was very friendly and polite. They help us a lot directions, all kind of discounts for museums..etc.
Xmas day we found a box of chocolate in our room sent by hotel managment as a xmas gift for all hotel guests. It was really nice.

I stayed there from the 12th of Aug to the 16th of Aug, 2013. It was a wonderful experience.
We landed in CDG and took the Roissy Bus, which is an economical mode of transport into the city. The bus stopped outside Opera and we walked to the Hotel. It is a 20 min walk so if u dont have luggage its not bad at all or you can take the metro from Auber and get off at Cadet which is very close.
We had requested for an early check in and gave us the room by 12:30. They kept our bags for us till we returned. The street outside has some love cafes and resto and if you walk towards gallier Lafayette you have more options to eat and shop. There is a Macdonalds, Starbucks and a Carrfour near by and other grocery shops. The hotel is not very far from the Hop on Hop off Bus...which starts from the Opera.
Most importantly would like to mention that the room was lovely. I ahd booked a Superior Double and it was superb. It was spacious and the bathroom was very good. The house keeping staff did a spendid job with the cleaning. Keep it up!!!
Above all, the staff of the Hotel is fantastic. They are kind and helpful and go out of their way to ensure that your stay is comfotable. They helped us with arranging for an airport drop which was cheaper then a Taxi. Thank you all for the lovely stay. Will definately go back and recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We got a room on the second floor facing the street. it was lovely as it had a little balcony. As fo...

Good location near Rue la Fayette. Excellent air conditioning (very necessary that night) and a modest breakfast in a modest room.
No complaints and I really wasn't there long enough to get a very thorough impression but it certainly did the job - 4 minutes stroll from my meeting the next day.

The hotel is in a quiet location, just a km or so from the shopping hub of Galleries Lafayette and Printemps. Fifty steps away is the metro station ( CADET) which connects you to the entire city. We travelled by metro everywhere and it was convenient and cheap. Parisians are very nice and helpful. They take the trouble to pour over your map and guide you. Thanks to all of them, it makes their city so safe and welcoming to tourists.Our hotel rooms were very comfortable and very well furnished with big airy windows. The reception staff is very helpful. They recommended that we travel by bus to see the Eiffel Tower. The view from that point was phenomenal ! Close to the hotel is a store G20 (I think), buy water and food from there. Next to Cadet is a Mcdonalds - have dinner. One more thing - the lady who serves breakfast manages to do a very good job single-handedly with a smiling face. Hope to visit Paris again, lots left to see, and stay here again. Thank you.

Dear Guests, thank you so much, we are really happy that you liked our very new Superior rooms with covered balcony on the 5th floor. Their contemporary style with a special artist's photo to decorate them, make them very trendy and glamour.
hoping to welcome you again, best regards. Caroline BAILLY

We stayed at the hotel for over a week and were satisfied with the services and staff.
After checking in at Midnight (flight was late) the guy at the reception looked a little bit tired but friendly and attentive nontheless.
Our hotel room ("cute little room in the corner") was small (like almost everything in Paris) but charming. It is very well situated with a metro station only 5 minutes away (and directly at the Rue Lafayette).
A con is the thin walls. We had very loudy neighbours and my dream of hearing our neighbour puking all morning long came true on a Wednesday morning.
We hadn't had a breakfast once in the hotel because we brunched everyday - so I can't say anything about it.
However about the cleaning staff I have plenty so say. It seems like the cleaning staff is very eager to get rid of the hotel guests and clean their rooms. At half past 8 in the morning (being a longsleeper it's way too early for me) the cleaning staff knocks on every door to see if the guests already left for sightseeing. If they have it's good, if not, she knocks starts vacuum cleaning and knocks every 15 minutes on your door. If you aren't up til Midday, they have their own key and come into your room to wake you. Even if you hang out your "Please do not disturb" sign, it won't work.
But otherwise is was a really pleasant stay and I would recommend this hotel.

Dear Madam, thank you for your stay and your appreciation about the hotel.
our apologies for disturbing you on mornings, we regret because this is not usual in our hotel ; the reason should be the replacement of some members of our staff for holidays by extras who forget this must. We took into account your information to advise them. Regards, Caroline BAILLY
