trip was great. location is perfect. rooms were surprising large for paris standards. clean, comfortable and quiet. service was fine. sylvia was very helpful. only hiccup was they cant seem to sort out their key locks. we had two rooms in our group and every night after 9pm our keys did not work and they needed to be recoded at the front desk. the front desk person says it never happens and maybe we kept it near our phone but that was not the case for all 4 of us. and while we were down stairs, at least 3 other rooms came to the desk for the same problem on the first night and two rooms the second night. sounds like more then a one time thing... but that said. we would definitely stay there again. all was great. thanks.
Within walking distance to the Louvre... about 8 minutes. There's a couple of local markets a few doors away from the hotel to take the place of a 7-11 store, which I thought was convenient, in case you need to buy water, drinks, or even a little late-night snack. If you need a ride back to Charles De Gaulle airport, I suggest you call "Super Shuttle" van service or go online from the computer to have them pick you up from the hotel. Taking the taxi to the CDG airport could cost roughly 70 Euro, but taking the a shared van like Super Shuttle only costs 27 Euros per person. There are plenty of restaurants and eateries around the hotel in the direction of the Louvre museum, but if you are an American, expect to pay a minimum of 18 euro per person for a decent Parisian meal excluding wine. 18 euro is roughly $25 USD. Food is not cheap in this area. There is a McDonalds about 4 blocks from the hotel but a meal of big mac, fries and small coke would cost you nearly $15 USD. Paris is a very expensive city with a high standard of living, so you might want to budget your money well in advance. Like in all tourist area, pickpocket thieves frequent the area, so be extra cautious with your wallet or purse. One guy bumped into me from my right side, and a second person lifted my personal belonging from my pocket on the left side simultaneously. Fortunately the thieve only lifted my folded bundle of maps instead. I highly recommend you leave your passport, majority of your credit card, cash, and valuables in your hotel safe, and bring just the bare minimum with you when you go out to places like the Eiffel tower, Louvre, Orsay Museum, etc. Also try not to touch your pocket with your wallet inside frequently because pickpocket thieves could spot where you kept your wallet. Other than that, Paris is a nice place to visit, and I highly recommend you go to this hotel because it is so conveniently close to the center of attractions.
Had a lovely room on the top floor with veiw to Palais Royal and city skyline. There is a lift or stairs to get to the room. Good location in close proximity to The Louvre and other sights. Service was excellent. No problems with speaking english. There is a small fridge in the room with drinks. There are no tea or coffee making facilities in the room so had to order room service or go out, which is a bit sad :o( There were plenty of places to get coffee/tea/ meals all of good quality and plenty very close to Hotel. Breakfast in the hotel was great with pastries, yoghurt, Fruit, coffee/tea/juice, Breadrolls ham and salami...Yum :o) We hired a Vespa, Left Bank Scooters delivered to the hotel and toured all the sights..really good fun with scooter parking just the other side of the road opposite the hotel entry. Shops in the area are plentiful and are the small boutique type stores selling anything you would want. We did go to Galleries Lafayette which is a large mall type centre, set out in sections by brand. Our 1st trip to Paris and Europe. We loved it.
Since our focus was to visit the Musee' De Louvre the location was good for the price. It was an easy walk to the Louvre. The restaurant in the basement of the hotel is VERY expensive. 14.40e for two coffees! The hotel refused to refund or re-schedule our stay after the cancelled flights. We had to contact their corporate office to gain our change of dates. The local manager refused to talk on the phone to work out the issue. We did experience a very friendly and helpful person at the desk upon check-in.
This is the place to stay while in Paris. Great service, most spoke english. The rooms were clean and everything worked great. Maybe a block from the Le Grand Colbert Restaurant. ease access to all the sites. Also there is a restaurant in the hotel and it also had good food.
We didn't spend much time in the hotel, having much to do in Paris. The room was small, but the bath was lovely, nice towels and bedding, however, the beds were hard and very close together. I thought the breakfast would be included and found that 15e was rather expensive for what we were served. The staff was friendly and helpful. Over all it was OK but seemed rather expensive since there were no perks.
A horrible experience -- avoid at all costs!!! I arrived and was told that there were no rooms because they needed emergency repairs and that I'd be taken care of at another equivalent quality hotel. After schlepping on foot across town, I found they'd sent me to a fleabag hotel where my room was a closet next to the manager's desk on the ground floor. I hiked back to the hotel where magically a room was available but they wanted a credit card before they'd show me what it looked like. Check the reviews on other sites -- misuse of credit cards and this fraud with overselling rooms and citing 'plumbing problems' is apparently standard practice for them which the taxi drivers can warn you about. While having it out with the clerk, another guest in the hotel came to complain that the hotel had taken and lost their passports -- 'check back later, maybe we'll find them' was the response.
The hotel was about 5 blocks from the Louvre museum and it was a very easy walk to the Orsay museum, Notre Dame, Ste Chapelle, the Opera, and the Metro. Just North of the hotel was a busy area with shopping, Starbucks, Hard Rock Cafe, and many other sights. It was also just across the street from a bakery, a laundromat, and 2 doors from a store where we bought bottled water, soda, wine, and fresh fruit for a low price. We loved the location! The room we had (Room 501) was high enough that we could see over many neighboring buildings. The room was very neat and up to date and the maids kept the room extremely clean. We had excellent service from the staff at the front desk. Please note that the hotel was not able to exchange money, but there were banks nearby that could perform this service. We never ate at the hotel, since we loved eating at the nearby cafes, so we cannot rate the food at the hotel. The rooms had a safe, shower and tub, hairdryer (Pain to use, according to wife, since you have to hold down thumb button or it turns off), stocked mini-fridge, nice closet, etc. The room had windows that open to let in fresh air and there is heat and A/C. The windows blocked MOST noise, but at night some noise still came into the room. Overall, this was a great hotel and we really enjoyed it!
The room was quite small, the bathroom was very small but overall both were clean. The elevator was small too and if you used the stairs, they were narrow and poorly lit. The breakfast wasn't worth the cost. Had to call down twice for our only two requests: 1) an iron and 2)ice. On the upside, this is a converted home and the back of the hotel was on a small, one-way street, facing a theater. The room (102) had double doors that opened out to this back street which was very pleasant as you could get in fresh air and sit and listen to the dinners chatting at a pizzeria at the end of the block. The Louve was just 1.5 blocks away which was conventinet. Overall, however, it was quite expensive for the size.
The Hotel Washington Opera is GREAT! The room was very nice, clean, well appointed, good sized room (not the typical tiny European hotel room). No complaints about the room or location at all - the bathroom was very nicely done in marble, good sized vanity, and a great shower -- very clean! The Hotel Washington Opera is a quaint hotel, with very friendly staff, in a great location. Just a short walk to the Louvre, the Opera, a subway station, and great shopping! I would definitely stay there again!
Fabulous location, staff very friendly, aesthetics excellent, condition very good. The wireless internet service was erratic and unreliable. Dining facilities were only avaialable for breakfast, but there is a wealth of restaurants nearby. No in-room dining service. Rooms were a little small, but that's Paris!
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!
