Reviewed 30 July 2013

just spent 3 nights here.l booked the trip as a first wedding anniversary treat for my wife and i through Hotwire.com without knowing the identity of the hotel beforehand.The room was tiny,about the size of a caravan bedroom with no aircon making it really stuffy especially at night.The bathroom was similarly small giving an overall feeling of claustrophobia.This was my first visit to paris therefore i dont know if this is the norm for the city.If it is then i will not be returning.l was warned by others in advance that paris is expensive and they were not wrong,7 euro for a pint of beer was the norm and eating out was equally dear which is a pity as the city itself is lovely and i enjoyed seeing all the sights it has to offer.If i ever was to return it would be to a different hotel for sure

Spent two nights at Grand Hotel Nouvel Opera in July '13. For a hotel in the heart of Paris, it is nice for the price. It's a small room, but plenty of room for two people. We managed to squeeze in our family of four [kids ages 4 and 6]. Includes a small balcony, bathroom, but no A/C - if you've been to Paris, then you know you don't usually need A/C. Very nice lobby, friendly staff. Stairs or elevator. I'd recommend to anyone in Paris on a budget.

I should mention, very near a decent parking garage for 28 Euro/night. Also very close to the metro. Plenty of affordable bakery and shopping in the area.

Every year we take a group of school children to Paris for a few nights. This was the first year in this hotel as our previous Hotel increased rates.
I have to say that we were pretty pleased with this Hotel. It was close to a Metro station (Voltaire). It wasn't on a major, noisy road. It was relatively new and clean rather than some of the older, tired looking ones. The breakfast was very good and the quailty of food considerably better than the other hotel. Room sizes were very good for Paris.
Bathrooms were typically very small and it was physically very difficult to get into the shower (and I do not consider myself overweight!). However, the shower worked well and was clean which was better than the previous hotel.
The room had a safe (so not sure how another user has been robbed?) and also a flat screen tv.
One downside though, which I know is pretty bad, is that one of our students got bedbug bites. Basically, the hotel cleans and changes the white bed sheets, but the brown blanket on top of the bed did not look like they had been cleaned for a while. This student decided to sleep on top of the bed and was bitten multiple times. I think this is always a risk in any hotel and probably avoidable if you don't use the old blankets, but I can fully understand why this will put some visitors off.
Despite this, I would use this hotel again for our school visit. I would also recommend for people on a budget because it ticks a lot of boxes.

Old saggy mattresses, tiny tiny tiny rooms. Water bottle supplied on first day only, and vending machine in lobby was out of order. Everything is poorly cleaned by service carts that block the too narrow hallway. Breakfast plentiful but simple, was the only decent element of the stay.

At the third night we were robbed 400 euros room 601 and the next room 602 the were robbed with 1500 euros do not stay in this hotel

We were "told" that i man came in payed the night and left around 10 pm didnt sleep in the room they think it was him.

The hotel doesn't need any i.d just money so you can stay in it thats why it is not secure at all no security and the neighboorhood is full of bars and it gets pretty uggly at night

I stayed at this hotel for six nights it was the worst experience to start we arrived at our room and the first thing in our beds "hair" the room is very very different from the pictures shown in trip advisor, booking and expedia.

The elevator is way to small and oviously slow, the people working in the hotel had no proffesion, uniform etc...

Hotel is a 1 star. Rooms are poor quality. Our room 306 had a hole in the bathroom door looked like someone may have kicked it. The walls were dirty the sink piping disgusting. The bed spread dirty. We changed to 307 and it was the same poor quality. Hotel would be a weekly/ monthly renter in vancouver hastings street. My wife and I got out 15 minutes after arriving.

Room Tip: No way of knowing when you use companies like Hotwire. So if its in $100-199 in Paris it's poor...

I stayed five nights at this hotel and was disappointed with their service. The shower in my bathroom had very poor pressure, down to a dribble, and I asked the folks at the reception to do something about it... on three consecutive mornings. The staff dutifully wrote down my request each time and proceeded to do nothing about it.
The one older gentleman who staffed the reception overnight was also quite rude. He would disappear from the reception, and on two occasions, made me wait at the front door for about ten minutes before I was buzzed in and didn't even bother to apologize.
Other than these two issues, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the (rest of the) staff were friendly. The neighbourhood was not the most exciting in town, but was a couple minutes walk from two metro lines. Also close to the Pere Lachaise cemetery which is pretty cool.
I recommend skipping the 9-euro breakfast at the hotel and getting a nice breakfast for 5 euros at one of the cafes on Ledru Rollin.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with actual shower pressure!
