From the raving reviews and pleasant photos, we would have never guessed this hotel hadn't been renovated since Alfred Hitchcock's filming of Vertigo. It's set back on a side street in a not-so-great neighborhood. The lobby is quirky and has 70's-esque pin-up character yes, but as soon as we saw the elevator we wanted to run the other way. Baggage has to be sent up separately because the ancient elevator fits only two people side-by-side (and we're not big people); claustrophobics beware. We took the stairs every time to avoid it. The winding staircase led up to our barely lit, creepy room, such that we could not tell if our clothes were blue, brown or black. If you're looking for Parisienne and quirky, look elsewhere. While the rooms are cheap, there are plenty of other Parisienne hotels that make Alba Opera pale in comparison. If you're at all accustomed to modern accomodations, avoid disappointment and book elsewhere.
