1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Terrible service and very disappointing facilities. I will never revisit this hotel. They even tried to charge me for an extra room at departure, when I asked them to show me some documentation, none existed but still the staff insisted that I should pay. Not until I called the Police did they agree to dismiss the charges.

The hotel is well located and clean. Front desk was very friendly and they made every attempt to help on all I needed. The only thing is that when I stayed there the Internet signal was poor in the rooms.

My friend and I visited Paris for a few days and were primarily there to view all the classic sights. Upon booking this hotel, we really didn't expect much. But on arrival we were very pleasantly surprised. The receptionist was so helpful and did not hesitate to assist us in any way which she could. Our room was of good size and had everything which we needed. Very comfortable and very spacious. Could of done with a slight upgrading on décor...but that did not bother us at all. In a great location from all major city sights (within walking distance) and also very easy to find the hotel from the train which we travelled to Paris by. All in all a great short stay.

I must say when we were dropped off at the very unimposing facade of Hotel Opera Maintenon I had second thoughts but I enjoyed this as our Paris base for our 2 nights here.

Liked:
- excellent location within walking distance everywhere (Louvre, Musee d' Orsay, St Germain, Pompidou, Verdome)
- high ceiling, comfortable and very clean room with air conditioning, modern bathroom and comfortable beddings. I am nou sure how big their normal rooms are as we had a triple but I did not feel that it was small - possibly due to the high ceilings and big windows. Everything you needed or will look for in more expensive hotels is available here for about half the price (we paid €140 for a triple room)
- lots of places to eat nearby including an array of delicious Japanese ramen and sushi hole in the wall places that saw queues form outside at night
- very friendly and helpful lady at reception. She didn't speak any English but her genuine helpfulness more than made up for the language barrier

Watch out for:
- as mentioned in earlier reviews, you need to climb up a flight of stairs to get to the elevator which is tiny (max 3 persons). We didn't mind this but not friendly for handicapped or luggage laden traveller.
- shower stall is quite small. I don't know if a large or pregnant person will fit.

Overall I thought this offered excellent value for the location and rooms. Will certainly return here (unless we are looking to splurge - this is NOT a splurge kind of hotel).

This hotel is wonderfully located, clean and comfortable. Rooms are small, but this is Paris! The property is quirky and historic with no lift from Reception to the first floor, and the corridors dark until one discovers the energy efficient lighting system. Still, the feel is warm and atmospheric with decor to match. Reception was cordial, and fully bilingual, with lots of advice offered about restaurants. Wi-Fi was good--my room was on the second level. This hotel is close to many attractions and great value.

This hotel is small and cosy and is in a perfect location, close to all of the sights. My partner and I walked to the Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, Lourve, Palais Royal, Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysees from the hotel. The hotel is close to two Metro stops and is easy to get too from Gare du Nord station if you are coming on the Euro Star.

I stayed here for several nights witht the parents; each of us had our own rooms. This hotel is in a brilliant location - about 10 minutes walk from the Louvre, and reasonably priced.
Elevator only handled about 200 kg in weight, so be wary of that. I used the stairs with my room being located on the second level. Air conditioning was little bit crappy, but thank goodness I had a really high ceiling. Everything was really clean and nicely set out.
Breakfast was croissant, and nice crusty roll with hot beverage. It was quite filling and nice. The customer service was well mannered and polite, however, not much english.
Overall, this was a decent place to stay. Thank you.
