The Washington Opera was a great hotel for the price! This was our first trip to Paris and we just went on blind faith as far as the hotel location was concerned, but it couldn't have been better. The room was spacious by European standards with a
very nice, modern bathroom. The only downside was our room overlooked the street, which, with the windows open was a bit noisey in the evenings. The Louvre was only a 5 minute walk away as was the Metro/RER. We bought a 3 day pass and rode everywhere without much trouble. There is a laundry facility across the street, 2 markets within 2 minutes, many great restuarants, and a wonderful pastry shop just down a few doors. The hotel staff was fabulous and extremely helpful. The maid service was outstanding. One day my daughter was ill and we didn't leave our room until after 2:00 pm, upon our return, the room had been serviced! I can not comment on the breakfast service or room service as we did not use them. I would absolutely stay at this hotel again and recommend it without hesitation!
