“Great location for Shopping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

W Paris is one modern petitle hotel located in Opera. Next to Apple store and 5-10 mins walking to all close by shopping spots. (Galleries Lafayette, Printemps, Rue Saint Honore<< street with all luxury brands Hermes RV Louboutins etc heaven to women hell to men) Close to tube station Opera. As for shopping you have everything all in a walking distance. Opera area is mixture of luxury brands and tourist spots.

The room is petite but with everything you need. However with my experience petite room is by far the standard room size in Paris. The bathroom is kinda like a Open-bathroom (in terms of open kitchen). The decoration of the room is modern yet with classic elements.

We stayed in this hotel with my partner just after New Years eve for our wedding anniversary. The hotel is in great location close to all the main attractions - Galleries Lafayette, Opera house and the underground stations in literally just across the street (underground was horrible in general but that is a different story). Staff in this hotel is just wonderful - everyone was so warm and welcome. Special thanks to Cecile - W Insider at the hotel and her team - we mentioned to her that we'll be staying for a wedding anniversary and had the room ready early morning with a pleasant surprise of a congratulations celebration welcome plate of macaroons and a great poster on the wall with a picture of my partner and me saying "Happy Wedding Anniversary" - that's what you call a personal touch!!! Everything is done to a high standard and nothing was a problem whenever we asked. Would I recommend this hotel?? ABSOLUTELY YES!!! Great place, funky design, fantastic staff - what more can you ask for?

We arrived from London on the EuroStar and after a VERY short taxi ride from Gare de Nord were greeted with a selection of flavored waters, a smiling staff and VERY helpful staff, a room that was ready and a walking distance to everything. The staff was incredible at helping us plan our days walking and sightseeing. Their recommendations were perfect, anything from the perfect crape, a relaxing breakfast to a wonderful high end dinner.

If you’re not into the walking thing, this hotel is right next to the Metro M3, M7, M8 & M9 lines that will take you just about anywhere you want to go. The subway system in Paris is very easy to understand and if you’ve used the NYC, London Underground, etc, this will be a breeze.

I highly recommend this hotel, my wife and I had a complete blast. We will be coming back, hopefully VERY soon!!

Room Tip: Honestly, I don't know if there is a bad room in the hotel. I wish I could be more helpful here...

I apologise for the late review. We stayed at W Paris for 2 nights. If you love shopping at Galeries Lafayette and Printemps, this is the hotel for you. These two well-known department stores are around 5 mins walk away. The subway stations are also near to the hotel.

Although the room is rather small, it is comfortable to have a good night sleep. The room is sound proof to the outside noise but you could hear other guests leaving/returning to their rooms. I must compliment the staff for their excellent service. We were greeting warmly when we arrived at the hotel and check in was hassle free. We requested a kettle to get some warm water and the staff went to the extent of bring along tea sets. On one occasion when we were about to leave the lobby, the staff noticed we did not have an umbrella and reminded us to bring it along as it was going to rain. We truly appreciate the staff going the extra mile and it is these minor details which make a hotel stand out from the rest.

W Paris is decreasing rapidly. they moved the breakfast area from a nice location to a cheap buffet down at the bar. and they also decided that you can't change your A/C settings to a certain limit (+ or - 3 degrees celsius from the room temperature). It sucks.

Dear LeMeuDu74,Thank you very much for your feedback. As you stated correctly, we have moved our breakfast to the ground floor for easier access and better views of the city and a better vibe. At the sametime we have reviewed our breakfast offer and have also added hot dishes to the selection.
The Air conditioning setting has since the opening of the hotel not changed. As you stated correctly, the temperature can be changed from the set temperature up or down by 3 degres.

My husband and I recently returned from our first trip to Paris, and we stayed at the W Paris Opera. The hotel is chic just like all W's, however, for me what stood out was the incredible service from their staff. We got amazing recommendations and tips, concierge was always willing to help us resolve any issues and everyone in the lobby greets you very warmly. Everything from checking out to the room service (which has good food as well). One of the concierges, Thomas, is extremely helpful, and I highly recommend him. He booked us tables at some great restaurants last minute, gave great local recommendations and even helped us change a reservation when I felt a bit ill and followed up to see if I was feeling better the next day. You can't beat the location either, it is very central, walking distance from the Louvre, beautiful building and great Metro station just in front.

This is a very small W hotel in comparison to the others under the same brand umbrella. Very small room, a gym, no pool. The entrance isn't very visible, look for the big Apple store next door instead.

Check-in process is typical W, friendly, efficient and hassle free. Standard W scent for the familiar smell whichever corner you turn.

In our very small room, and the only W room we have stayed in that we can't find the W Wish kaleidoscope. The layout went for more design than function. Big TV wall with some fashionable decorative items, but the integrated luggage stand isn't big enough for my suitcase.

Cool shower box design, although plastic surface very slippery.

Curiously there was a huge "mini bar" tray placed beside the basin, with all kinds of items available for sell such as pre-mixed cocktails, premium snacks, an adaptor and two individual condoms.

We thought there definitely were better and more space efficient ways to display minibar items. Additionally, there's no coffee nor tea facilities were available, if you want a Nespresso machine in room, you have to pay 200 EUR deposit first, and pay for a tray of capsules (not included in the room rate).

During our stay there was one morning the cleaning lady opened our door while we're undressed, although she quickly apologized and closed the door, we were surprised that it's not a standard practice to knock on doors first.

Food and drinks at the hotel's only restaurant were very good.

Dear plu81,
Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at the W Paris-Opéra, located in the center of Paris. Cause of the room size, we opted for the system of free vouchers in the W Lounge (from 11 am to 1 pm) instead of coffee and tea facilities. We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again soon to present this item and to continue the W experience with a Parisian Style.
Best regards,
Christophe Mercier.
