Arriving by Eurostar right in the centre of the city we walked to our hotel and then were ready to explore the city. It was evident that there were many people visiting Paris for the Christmas New Year break.
It was great to have Lee and Shane in Paris at the same time and we caught up most nights to do something together.
Firstly we just …
... accuracy in terms of getting balls into containers using mirrors and folding himself in half. The interaction and relationship he built with the crowd made the act and was highly entertaining almost upstaging the dancing!
The second act were three men that turned a bank robbery rivalry into an acrobatics and wrestle style act that was astonishing and scary. From almost throwing one guy into the crowd (held onto him by one leg whilst swinging him out over the crowd) ...
We caught the Metro to the beginning of the Champs Elysees and enjoyed a stroll through the Christmas markets. I bought myself some warm socks as my feet were not too happy with the cold. We met Wendy along this stretch for a short while and she took us past the Grand Palais and Petit Palais buildings both used for exhibitions and then onto a beautiful bridge. We could see the Eiffel tower and bridge itself was lovely, Ro was keen to take photos, Wendy needed to go, so the ...
... Peter thinks it's silly, so we didn't bring a padlock to add to the hundreds of locks already on the bridge. We saw an artist painting, a couple of homeless people and some houseboats. There are hawkers walking around with rings of Eiffel Towers for sale. They even stand outside the buses trying to get people to buy things.
After the cruise we got back on the bus and got off at ...

I cycled up and down Avenue de l’Opéra on my way to and from Galleries Lafayette, and got a hint of the majesty and grandeur of the 1ère and 8ème. It’s just off this road that I first saw what I think of as real (and therefore truly chic) Parisiens. These are those who eat Steak Tartare for lunch, gossip outside over a glass ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Aida Opera Paris
Have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Aida Opera. I must say that I think some of the guest reports are from another hotel. We found the hotel to be in a good location for metro, Restaurants and sight seeing.
Wretched little hotel
My wife and I hated this hotel. The staff was friendly, but only on Saturdays. The rooms were small (there was only 5 inches of clearance between our bed and bathroom); the safe did not work; the bathroom light did not work and they were not fixed while we were there. The location is quiet, in fact, too quiet. The hotel is tucked away in a quiet residential area, so it really isn't an interesting place to stay.
What really angered me was that all the lights were flourescent bulbs, so there was a stale, flickering glow at all times.
If you don't have to be in this area, don't stay here.
Recently returned from Aida Opera Hotel... expected much more... room was adequate at best... staff was not too anxious to please... five to ten minute walk to nearest metro station (Grands Boulevards)...
Would recommend staying at a different hotel for similar price...
thank you very much for your comments. Please note that the hotel has been renewed with a brand new decoration.
On top of that, we have taken measures to create an enjoyable experience for each of our guests. We will be glad to welcome you again.
I just returned from a wonderful trip to Paris with my teenage daughter, mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and her pre teenage daughter. We had 2 rooms in the Aida Opera for 7 nights - a triple and a double. Actually my daughter and I had a quad for our first night. We were told on checking in that we would be moved to a double. The move was handled easily by the staff.
We stayed in this hotel this year and found it to be very friendly and close to all amenities.The staff could not be more helpful and the reception area and rooms where keep very clean.All in all a very good three star hotel close to le metro and all the shops.By the way if you stay at this hotel if you go to the main bolevard and turn left,go down the street until you see the cinema turn up that street and take a left you will come across an amazing amount of clothes stores all at half the price of the big stores.WE only found this on our last day and as we had to go back to the hotel for our taxi could only get to see a quarter of the stores.Also go to see Napoleons Tomb it is jaw-dropping
We stayed here for one night and it was fine. Clean and comfortable. We had a family room which consisted of a double bed and a fold out sofa bed, which suited the children fine. Breakfast was the usual fare, dining room small so you felt obliged not to linger. It is off the beaten track a bit, so we took a taxi back from the Eiffel Tower in the evening as we weren't too happy walking around there at night - it was probably quite safe but with 2 kids it seemed quite. Staff were helpful and spoke English, however one complaint we had was we wanted to get to Auber station to catch the train to DLP - receptionist told us a taxi wouldnt take us as it was only a 5 minute walk, yeah right, with two kids and 2 bags it took about 30, and even without the kids it would have taken a good 15 mins and I am sure a taxi would have taken us, however we did pass the magnificant Opera on the way so that was a bonus.
I would say this hotel is better than what i expect from what i read from the reviews. It is a bit off the main street but still reasonably convenient consider we can walk to any 3 tube stations in less than 10 minutes.
First the positive things: staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were clean, hotel located in area accessible to metro for sight seeing.
Our family (4, adult sized) stayed at the Aida Opera in late June, 2004, in one of their family rooms. There was a fold out bed (double) and two twins, and a nice bathroom. Our (top) 6th floor room overlooked Rue Richer. The neighborhood was mixed but there were several similarly-sized hotels - this appeared to be one onf the nicest, though. Several patisseries and boulangeries in the area. We are not Jewish, but we understand it is the "Jewish quarter" and there were some kosher places around.
Despite what we had read and heard about the hotel and about hotels in the area, we found the hotel to be clean, bright with relatively friendly and helpful staff.
