Although we had a nice weekend-get-a-way trip to Paris in November, we decided to to it again in May, but with a slightly cheaper hotel than the Alba Opera Hotel.
After some extensive websearching we settled for the Ibis Paris Bastille Fouborg hotel, especially because of the parking facilities as we were going to travel to Paris by car. The website of the hotel clearly mentions that the parking garage is small and that a reservation is needed. So, after booking two nights, I mailed the hotel to reserve a parking spot and got a very quick and cheerful reply from Julie, confirming my parking-spot in the small garage.
Upon arrival, acces to the garage was given and the garage was small indeed, a maximum of about eight cars could be parked. The parking fee was 15 euro's a day, and I thought that was a very reasonable price for a city centre location.
The hotel is located near the Place de la Bastille, which was in walking distance. If you didn't fancy a walk across the lively streets, you can find a metro stop at 200 meters, meaning acces to the rest of Paris is easy.
The room itself (don't know the number anymore...) was good, just you're typical Ibis-hotelroom. Clean, functional and with a good bed, so no complaints there. I can't comment on the breakfast, as we always decide to eat out during out weekenders and there was plenty to choose from in the direct neighbourhood of the hotel.
All in all, I can recommend the hotel for a nice weekend-get-a-way, if you just need a good and clean place to sleep and spend the rest of your time in the city.
