Even if it was in the centre of Paris and near a metro station, the area wasn't so nice and you had a feeling that you should be careful especially at night.
The room was small and the breakfast area was extremely small. The Receptionist was almost polite.It was not a worth for value, quite expensive for what it was offering.

Room Tip: The 6th floor is restored and much better for the rest floors. Choose rooms with view to rue de doua...

I was staying with my friends in 2 separated rooms. The hotel is really old fashioned and not so nice as we expected from the photos. Old equipment, ugly colours and smelly carpets was the first impression of this hotel. Staff was cool as well as very poor breakfast. On the other side, it is really cheap hotel and if you are looking for cheap accommodation with no demands, of course you can try Apollo Opera. Good luck!

Right, ok.. if you choose to stay here check your bed for bed bugs first!

I arrived at the hotel after discovering all Eurostar trains had been cancelled that night due to the weather conditions so I couldn't get home, it wasn't a good start to my nights stay there.

I probably had the tiniest, depressing room they offer, the sheets on the bed hadn't been changed since the last person and their rubbish was still left piled up in the bin (looked like they had a good old feast from the local take-out place) I was too tired and had to get up early for first come first serve Eurostar trains back home so just slept on top of the bed.

I got woken up at 3am by some hungry bed bugs! I spotted about 4 of the little blighters in total (see pic) when I told the guy at reception about the bed bugs he didn't bat an eyelid.

Room Tip: check bed for bed bugs!! check the price on the visa card machine before you type in your code, I al...

I was disappointed that we were moved from this hotel to a grotty 2* down the road. When I complained we were moved to another one futher away that wasn't great and was so noisy we had no sleep. We then had to walk back to the Apollo Opera to get our breakfast in a tiny room and there was no seats and people queueing to sit down. We then had to get our bags from the other hotel and move to the Apollo Opera. As we were only there for 2 days, we spent far too much time running around moving hotels when we should have been enjoying our break! It seems that this overbooking is common and the owner tries to charm and smile his way through it and then pockets the difference by putting people into a cheaper hotel. Very disappointing

this trip was actually our honeymoon. we didn't want a grand room we only wanted to spend several beautiful days in a beautiful city. the first night we arrived we were sent to a neighboring 2 star hotel with a very vague explanation of the reason for this switch. fine. we are didn't pay much attention to that, though we had paid for 3 star hotel. than we were asked to leave all our things in the hall the next day. not a very pleasant feeling, you know, to walk the whole day not knowing where your case exactly is. but fine again. all our things were safe when we got back. we checked really attentively. and then sort of calmed down. a mistake!!!! cause in 4 days we saw that OUR MONEY from the case HAD BEEN STOLEN. 6000 rubles. to explain better i can say that my monthly wage as a university teacher is 3898 rubles. now this was REALLY bad. we talked to the owner, Victoria, and she said that only 2 people could come into our room BUT 'unfortunately i can't help you. What do you want from me?' of course. you know there is a THIEF in your staff and 'what do you want from me?' she said she would try to find the money and she will write me anyway about the investigation, but guess?? no email, nothing. this is really disgusting. may be the have some robbery team they pay her interests? who knows... the funny thing was when she said: Oh, you can't even convert rubles to euro in Paris. of course we can't!!! where? in the bank??? oh? what is it - a bank???? and why did she think we were so stupid... well, the last thing i want to advise: DON'T STAY IN APOLLO OPERA. BEWARE OF THE THIEVES!!!!!!!!!!!!! thanx for you time)))) and have a beautiful time in Paris))))

There was elevent of us ranging from 38 to 55 and we all had a great weekend, It was basic but clean and very friendly staff. Just around the corner from the Moulin Rouge and not far from the Metro which is also easy to understand. The night life was buzzing but also many bars to sit and enjoy the atmosphere. I would recommend this hotel if you want to go to Paris to see the sights and not to sit in a hotel room.
