The people at this hotel are amazingly friendly and helpful. The lobby is set up comfortably and during the day they have what they call "happy time" which is where they set up sweets and pastries with coffee for you to enjoy. We were able to leave our bags there before we checked in and enjoy an espresso. The room...

Stayed only one night on a quick trip to Paris. Hotel ideally located. Staff welcoming on arrival. Reception area well appointed. Our room was on the 5th floor and a little disappointing. Bathroom was clean and looked recently updated whilst the room was a bit shabby. Curtains had holes in them. Bedside light wasn't working. Room just lacked a bit...

My friend and I stayed in this hotel from the 3rd - 5th of December. I have been lucky to travel to Africa, America and Continental Europe but the staff in this hotel are exceptional.

Hotel is in the middle of Paris. A small walk to the shops, a small walk to the restaurants and very friendly staff. What is best about this hotel is that they rent out a mobile wifi device to guests at 1 euro per day. This is perfect when you don't know Paris that well and need a guide on...

Hotel position is close to many attractive spots in Paris. Hotel members are extremely kind. They offer cakes and tea each afternoon for free. Some noise may arrive from the street even late in the night due to some vine bar. Rooms are quite comfortable

We arrived late at night by taxi and the front of the hotel was unlit in a dark street. Check-in was fine but it was a squeeze to get 2 of us + luggage into the minute (900x600mm) lift.

this was my first visit to a happy culture hotel in Paris. the staff was super friendly and amazing. the lifts are a bit small, but since this was not the only hotel i stayed at in Paris, i know that most hotels in the city have small lifts. the rooms were cosy and the beds were quite comfortable.

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
