Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Premier Opéra Faubourg Paris
El hotel está muy bien ubicado, con tiendas muy cerca de allí. El metro (que es como se llama allí) está a dos minutos andando. La habitación parece un poco pequeña al principio pero en realidad tiene un tamaño perfecto. El aire acondicionado era imprescindible y funcionaba bien. La habitación estaba limpia y la ducha era fantástica, además tenía muchísima presión. Tenía miedo de que fuera un poco ruidoso por la calle pero cuando se cierran los grandes ventanales, el ambiente de la habitación es tranquilo. La cama sólo era doble y podría haber tenido más de dos almohadas. En los alrededores encontrarás un montón de fruterías y en la habitación un frigorífico. El personal, que hablaba inglés, era muy servicial ayudándote con mapas y dando direcciones. Hay un Macdonalds justo al lado del metro, que es bastante práctico para tomarte un café rápido y un desayuno continental. No tomamos el desayuno en el hotel porque costaba 16 euros. Me pareció un poco caro para lo que había por allí pero quizás no lo era si se comparaba con los estándares parisinos.
Nicely decorated rooms
The newly decorated rooms were very nice, but the rooms are VERY small with even smaller amounts of storage. The housekeeping was very poor, they forgot to leave 2 sets towels one day, and then forgot to clean the coffee/tea service. We returned one day to find they had made one bed but not the other????? Called the reception desk, but nothing was done.
Staff at reception didn't always provide correct information. Several times when we asked for directions they were incorrect. We asked the evening reception clerk for an internet cafe and he said "there aren't any in Paris". Before leaving we asked about how long it would take the Metro to CDG airport, we were given two totally different answers.
We were charged for breakfast when we never ate at the hotel, after questioning the desk clerk, the charge was removed.
Overall I didn't feel this hotel provided good value for the money.
I just got back from paris, spending 2 nights at the Mercure hotel opera Lafayette. It has just been completely renovated and it's small, but very charming! The room is decorated in warm chocolat and creme colours and very modern. The rooms are small, but extremely clean and the beds very comfortable. Just make sure to ask for a double bed, because first we had 2 seperate beds and it drove us crazy! They kept sliding apart, so no romance the first night... After changing rooms, we had a bigger room and a nice double bed. The interior is very minimalistic, like almost no space for putting your things in the bathroom or in the shower, but it didn't bother us. The shower has a huge sprinkler, with a massage swith on it. Nice! No bathtub though. But if you like to relax, on the ground floor a completely new relax area with a small but clean sauna, a hammam with mozaic tiles. It also has a 3 work out machines, a stepper, crosstrainer and a runningbelt. The people at the reception were allways very friendly and helpfull. You can park your car across the hotel for 23 euro/24hours. But we left it in front of the hotel on the street, because a fine only costs 11 euro a day... You just simply buy a stamp at the local tabacco store and drop it in the mailbox. Good location, next to metrostop "le pelletier", pink line 7. Plenty of restaurants & shopping
The hotel is in a great location with shopping in walking distance.. A subway called Metro is two minutes walk. The room seemed a bit small at first but actually was fine in size. Air conditioning was a must and it worked well. The room was clean and the shower was greatwith lots of pressure. I was afraid it might be a bit noisy right on the street but when the large windows were closed the room was very quiet. The bed was only a double and could have had more that two pillows. Lots of little fruitstand grocery shopes nearbyand a barfridge in room. The staff spoke english and were very helpful with maps and directions There is Macdonalds right beside the Metro which was handy for a quick coffee and continental style breakfast. We didn't have the breakfast the holel offers at 16 Euros. I thought it was a bit pricey for what looked to be available though maybe not for Parisian standards.
Good value Lafayette
A good value Tourist hotel, well situated for the Metro (2 stations within 5 mins. walk). Appx. 25 mins. walk to Sacre Couer, Oprea Madelaine, Gard de Nord. Lots of bars & eating places within the area. Bedrooms a little on the small side but clean with en suite facilities, hair dryer etc. A good continental breakfast served in the very attractive vaulted cellar.
Staff very friendly & helpful. Stayed for 3 nights March 2005.
Would use again without hesitation.
Good Value in Paris
We accidentally happened upon the Libertel Lafayette, when we booked a "sister" hotel where renovations were not finished, and we were moved for our 4 day stay in April 2004. The room was small (probably normal for Paris), but was recently renovated and very clean. The staff were bi-lingual and were wonderful during our stay, helping us with our room, with using a phone card, and with a universal electrical adaptor when ours broke. They were always pleasant, and the breakfasts were generous and delicious (a bargain). The area is what we assumed is the CBD, and has cafes, some more up-market restaurants, and of course, the big department stores, the Opera Garnier etc. The hotel is less than 5 minutes from the Metro. The street is busy during the day, and our room didn't have airconditioning, so if that is not available now, having the balcony door open could be noisy (it was very chilly in April). It would be worth checking this out for a summer stay. We enjoyed our stay very much, and we walked to many attractions from the hotel. Very good at the price we paid.
I stayed here during a seven day trip to Paris. I have absolutely nothing to complain about. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, the breakfast was great. The hotel was perfectly situated in Paris. Close enough to still feel in the "middle" of the amazing city , but still not too close. I have no complaints what-so-ever to give. Also, if you don't speak French, most of the staff do. They are more than happy to speak English. I strongly reccomend that anyone wanting to go to Paris stay here.
I spent 4 nights at Libertel Lafayette's in summer 2003. I arrived the hotel at 3 p.m. but check in time was 5.30 p.m.
because the room was not ready. The staff where snooty and unfriendly.
The room was very small, almost like a shoebox. The breakfast was poor and the small bar was closed at all times. Don't go there!
Loved Libertel Lafayette
I spent about a week at this hotel while on business. It was reserved for me by my company and I found it to be an excellent choice. It is a brisk walk away from Monmartre, L'Opera, and many of Paris's famous landmarks. The room was clean and comfortable. However, although I enjoyed 'feeling the flavor' of the city as I looked out my window, which faced the front of the hotel, I did find it somewhat noisy. Therefore, if you are a light sleeper you may want to request a room facing the rear of the building. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The staff was always helpful as well. No need was unattended. The cafe across the street, General Lafayette, is a nice option for lunch or dinner. I highly recommend this property.
Safe ,Clean,Affordable hotel in Paris
Stayed at The Libertel Layfayette Hotel in Paris. I
picked it from a description from an online vacation provider. After observing the many dumpy looking hotels along the way from the airport,I was relieved to pull up to my home away from home for the next week. Situated on Rue de Layfayette,which is a busy main road. The hotel is clean,safe and affordable,within walking distance of the metro,shopping,Oprea Garnier and the local tour provider. The staff was always friendly and hel-
pful,most speaking english. My single room was small but well kept with all the amenities. Full
buffet breakfast was included in room price and it was good!.The entire hotel appears to have been refurbised. Many restaurants and convience stores are nearby. A ten or twelve dollar cab ride gets you to most of the sites. The hotel is rated three stars,I would stay here again.

... is they start to shew people away, the Crush's Coaster wait time was listed as 70 mins, we queued for 15 tops, they just wanted to scare people away so that come 9pm they could shut down on time. Either way we had a great ride!
Back to King Ludwig's for a Weiss while the girls shopped we ended up doing dinner there to. Gab says you can't get enough Disney magic and I mostly agree, though after two days with Paris beckoning on the other side I'm hoping we're done for this ...

St Denis was definitely not underwhelming and neither was the concert. The Basilica, which is the oldest Gothic Cathedral in Paris and contains the tombs of more French Kings than any other, was grand with beautiful and varied stained glass windows. The theatrical lighting for the concert made the building even more dramatic - red spot ...
... the door would open, but nothing was happening. Now i really thought we were going to French Train Jail! I finally had to turn around, sink down to the floor and crawl under the turnstile. Finally my metro card worked and we were able to get on the train. We've been gone for nearly 3 weeks now and it's probably good that we are coming home soon. In the last few days we've called an elevator a lift, a lineup a queue, and Nick is getting too used to speaking ...
... a sheltered spot had our lunch and someone a little snooze! Walked over to Saint Germain and decided that as we had had such a light lunch, afternoon tea was in order and as we were very close by, Laduree was the obvious choice! Tea and macaroons were had and only cost double our lunch!! Back on the metro and over to Palais Royal which is near the louvre to visit a wine store to buy some wine to take to Tim's! came away with a six pack including a ...

Here they sell remnants called coupons and they are very reasonably priced.
