The smallness of everything from the room to the elevator actually added to the enjoyment of our trip! We had a tripple room, which meant three twin beds in a space smaller than my college dorm room! However for three friend from high school on a midlife adventure...perfect! Breakfast was nice and staff was very helpful! Excellent location to catch the tour bus or walk to the Louve on a nice day. Beds were not the best, but who wants to sleep in Paris!

You know, I was a bit daunted when I first decided to stay in Paris, I thought that getting around the place and being able to get amongst the people would just be too hard. NOT from this location!..Situated at the beginning of Montmarte, with only a 15 minute taxi ride to the Seine or the Eiffel Tower, I found that the Corona Opera was ideal. The rooms are small but I have heard that this is the 'norm', however the windows opened out to a narrow street where jazz music could be heard coming from an intimate bohemian club and the views of the old buildings with their balconies and flower boxes was charming, plenty of shops of all types lined every street . Breakfast was very traditional French, with fruit and croissants but there was bacon and eggs too! The lift to the various floors was so tiny, just enough room for two large suitcases, actually it was hillarious for my partner and me, it was so ''oldee worldee".. We loved it. It was a Real Parisienne Hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor and ask for street views

We were a couple and a friend and booked a suite. Suite 001 consisted of a modern room well decorated with a curtain and a narrow hall which included a chair bed not a sofa bed. End result we had to book another room which was a room for 3 persons as only one available. This is the smallest room I have seen room 405. Again a chair bed which did not fit between the two walls and was wedged between two walls. Bathroom so small that you had to sit side ways on the toilet. Breakfast very good. Good position for attractions.

First of all, I was shocked at how small this hotel was. We had a triple (which was not problem in other cities), so we had 3 beds. I literally had to crawl over beds to get around. Having 3 suitcases was a challenge. The bathroom was so small that I missed it entirely. It was behind the door when you entered. The room reminded us of dorm rooms in college. No frills whatsoever. Not even a picture on the wall or nicely painted walls. The staff was helpful. The breakfast was ok. Oh!!! The elevator could only hold 3 people smashed in. Hilarious because it could only take up the luggage. The location was convenient, however. Many restaurants, stores, bus stops, and pharmacies in walking distance. This is not a comfort hotel. We used it to sleep and dress only. It was too small to just hang out and relax.

The location is not near any of the tourist areas, except for the Galeries Lafayette which is walking distance if you don't mind walking many, many long blocks - it's still doable. Catching the metro to any of the tourist areas is fantastic - practically right outside your hotel door. If you're able to read the transit maps and compare them with street maps you'll be fine at this location. A few restaurants near by, not a lot, just a few. Great boulangerie and creperies are steps away. Fantasic gelato at Amorino right around the corner -yummy!!. The lobby to hotel is very small - in back of the front desk is the dining room where they serve the continental breakfast in the morning. Breakfast meal - very good. Fresh croissants, warm breads, cheeses, deli meats, coffee and/or tea - which are served warm, not hot, so you may want to ask them to reheat or nuk. To get to your room, use the elevator - one-at-a-time. If you have a large suitcase, you may have to send it up alone...yes the elevator is that tiny! There are stairs that wind up, but again, be prepared if you have a large tote bag. The rooms are small, but clean and efficient. The shower/tub combo - prepare to find water splashed on the floor as the shower door is not flushed with the wall or the tub, there is a 1/4 or 1/2 inch opening allowing water to fall to the floor. Also the tub is quite high - so if you've a problem with raising your knee, this is not the place for you - and no rubber mat in the tub, or rails to hold on to; don't think of holding on to the shower door as it is not attched to the wall. Air conditioner is set at a certain temperature, so although the room can be cool, it won't adjust to make it 'cooler'. When we called the front desk, the manager said the engineer wont be in until the morning. The manager did stop by to try to adjust it, but said, it should be fine now. It wasnt and unfortunately, that weekend was one of the hottest in Paris (Aug. 2-3). Desk manager (2 we met) friendly and helpful, but even when asking directions they say "right there" or "very close" or "go here" when pointing to your map, but dont really say which street and how many lights or how many blocks. Thankfully, the station agents at the metros were all helpful and we were able to find our way. The hotel is located in the back of a busy main street, but it's quiet, the front entrance is in an alley-type, very narrow street. If you're street smart savvy and confident you're able to use the metro lines, this could be the place for you. If you're looking to be closer to the tourist sites, this is not the place for you; none of the tour bus companys we searched will stop at this hotel.

nice renovated hotel, just two metro stops to main LFY shopping areas! Even you could have an easy walk from Opera with a big luggage for around 15mins from the Rossy bus Opera station.

Ppl. said small lift but it's quite normal in Paris small hotels. Nothing to be surprised about.

There is a famous restaurant just opposite to the street exit but you have to wait for around half hour.

one very bright & light restaurant on the left of the main exit is NOT recommended. Cheating ppl.. the quality is not good.

This area on Metro Grand Bouvolard is always our first hotel choice.
