I am little late in posting this feedback but I wanted to make sure that I write when I have enough time. We visited Paris in the month of June-2017 and it wasn't my first trip to Paris, I have been frequent to Paris for business trips but this time we were doing Paris for vacations. We took a taxi from Nord station (you know that queue which is arranged by station staff to help tourists) and the hotel was hardly 800 m away from station, as soon as we boarded the Parisian Taxi and it moved a little, driver declared it will take 50 euro for us to reach the hotel, which was not acceptable to us since I know the tariff of taxi in Paris, with a little efforts of resistance, and his illogical reasoining, we reached hotel already. Driver parked the taxi way before the hotel and asked us money to which my husband start having conversation on why he is not charging us my meter and there is no fixed amount. I took some of our luggage and rushed to hotel, asking help from Hotel staff as driver is cheating us. As soon as I entered Hotel , I asked help from Valarie who was in charge of reception, she immediately informed Madame Baili (manager on duty) and she accompanied me going back to driver and gave him peace of mind for cheating us and the fraud that he was trying to do with fake bill etc. He finally agreed on 10 Euro and my husband and I returned to hotel for some change of money, When my husband went outside to give him money, he ran away with his taxi but No he actually went to hide his taxi so that we don't take picture etc and came back running and tried to hit my husband and snatch money. He also tore the 10 euro note and said a few bad words. Madame Baili took an immediate action to push him away from hotel warning him of police and locked first thing the hotel to ensure her guests are safe. (Well, who would have thought of these acts in Paris ! But yeah, with so many migrants, Paris is changing gradually). Valarie and Madame Baili were only staff taking care of hotel at front end and they showed immense presence of mind, hospitality, care and customer experience to us, we applause such ladies commanding the show. Coming to hotel rooms and amenities, this hotel is near Opera as name sugests and cadet metro station is around 100 mts away, various restaurents nearby and the rooms are neat and clean, spacious as compared to Paris hotel norms (generally tiny rooms), beautiful flower balcony that lets you enjoy Paris essence in the mornings or evening coffee. I couldn't suggest anything better or scope of improvement for this hotel as me and my husband are bot deligted with their service. We also met- Frederic who was taking care of night duty mostly and was equally courteous, suggestive and great to have conversation with. Overall, outstanding experience because of the lovely staff and great customer service. Good luck hotel best western, anjou team. Love - Divya and Deepak :-)
The front desk greeted us with typical Parisian charm and made our short 3 night stay a very pleasant one. The location is very convenient as you are a ten min walk away from Gare du Nord and the closest metro station is about a 4 minute walk. When I had laundry to wash the front desk gave me easy to follow directions to a coin laundry across the street. The room was clean and quiet and since it was very hot outside the ice cold A/C was very appreciated! The room rate is very reasonable for Paris and I definitely would stay at this lovely little hotel again.
The moment you went into the street with the hotel you felt truly Parisian. Not to mention that you have a park right there and it is to the right from Lafayette street where you find all types of cafes, restaurants that are even 24/7 and have happy hours for cocktails for those interested. As soon as you step into the hotel, you get a very welcoming feeling and feel right at home. The reception was always nice with us and helped us get some tickets printed out for various attractions. They even provided a local map with objectives to visit and indicated the best route. Let me not mention the fact that the metro station is 4 minutes away and you can stop for an extra coffee at the Starbucks right before it. The rooms were perfect french decor with a tiny typical balcony that made us feel like we are truly experiencing Paris and it's charm. Going down for breakfast was another story: they have the best croissants. Who cares about anything else? They have a large selection of tea and coffee from the house but you can also ask to have espresso made. There is a wide variety of cheeses present enough to make it a true breakfast, accompanied by boiled eggs and ham as well as fresh Orange juice. And the sitting are is quite lovely, just like a typical boutique breakfast. Definitely will be back when we come to Paris as the shuttle bus (Roissy-Bus) dropped us off directly from the airport to the Opera Garnier and then had a maximum 10 minute walk. All in all, lovely place to stay and wonderful neighborhood, easy to reach anywhere by walking or taking the bus/metro. Disneyland is also easy to reach from Opera (direct line). So no reasons not to choose it as the Gare de Lyon is also close in case another trip arises or you come by train to Paris. Everything was so perfect that we cannot say we did not like something as it was a great experience and easy to get location from everywhere, especially at night when you want to reach back easy (metro or uber).
The Hotel is located on a good position for Public transportation. The hotel was nice, the staff were polite but in the room we were not happy with what to do with cleanliness, towels did not change during our stay (which was 6 days) and had to ask for Toilet paper because they often did not put spare in the room. The money was too much in relation to the prosper
I was really angry for the bad flight and I thought its a not a good hotel but after a while i realized its great. The staff were really friendly, There was a detox water always in labby. the balcony view was to the street and the location was near gallery Lafayette and metro. Bathroom was clean. Be careful with the location because there is two or three streets like that and you may lost when you are walking. You can go to Lindt shop and carrefur by walk. There is a wax meusium and hard rock cofe near hotel. there is another super market near hotel.
The price and location were really, really nice. The hotel is in a lovely part of Paris and close to a metro station. The hotel offers a breakfast buffet, which is very nice, but a little over priced based on the number of options in the immediate neighborhood. It was raining one night and the bellman offered us an umbrella as we were leaving. The hotel staff couldn't have been nicer. We really enjoyed our stay.
Close to metro station Cadet, calm street. 15 minutes on foot from Gare du Nord. Superior room quite large for Paris standard, with view of the top of Montmartre. Interesting design of rooms, very colorful. Friendly staff.
I had stayed in this hotel Sept.2016 & decided to return there.As before welcoming,friendly staff.Hotel is very well maintained,very clean.The bedroom,though a little small,is well appointed.The bed is extremely comfortable & again the pillows are perfect.Our room faced the street & we were given the choice of changing to another if it proved unsuitable,but it was fine. The location is great,many restaurants within walking distance .It is less than 5 min.walk to metro & under 15 min.walk from Gare du Nord.Very enjoyable visit.
With most hotels being quite expensive and offering very small rooms, this hotel is difficult to top when comparing value for money. Spacious rooms at very good prices topped with a good breakfast. The staff is very helpful, recommended a great little restaurant around the corner and the taxi to the airport arrived within 3 minutes of requesting it at reception. I would highly recommend this hotel and will stay here again.
The hotel offers decent accommodation at an attractive location. It is walking distancuje from Montmartre, Garde du Nord, and there is a metro stop one block away from the hotel. The staff were nice and friendly and at the rate I was paying (well below €100) I have nothing to complain about. The room was comfortable, it had a kettle, safe, nice bathroom. On the downside I should mention that the room was rather small, just enough space for single occupancy but I am not sure how two persons (it was a double room) would fit in. There was an ugly stain on the carpet. The walls were paper thin and I could hear lots of sounds. The breakfast priced at €13 did not feel a good value for money. In conclusion acceptable stay but don't expect much.
