TravelPod Member ReviewsBEST WESTERN Premier L'Horset Opera Paris
This is not your typical Best Western, if you have Best Western points I suggest you use them here. Other then the fact the hotel letterhead has the Best Western logo on it, you wouldn't know it.
The Best Western L'Horset Opera is a small boutique hotel with a bar area, a small free continental breakfast for guests, elevator and nice size rooms. Our room was clean, new bathrooms and beds were comfortable. It can be difficult to find a boutique hotel with king size beds however this hotel does offer them.
Its located in a small alley close to the theatres, luxury stores, cafes and the Louvre Museum.
This is a higher priced hotel but worth the money for the comfort it provides.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Premier L'Horset Opera Paris
Great Hotel & Location
Thanks to all the previous trip advisor reviews we stayed here and loved it! The kind staff at the hotel were exceptional. They truly made our stay enjoyable. This was my 5th time to Paris and by far the best place I've stayed.
The location was perfect for walking to almost all the major sites and great for shopping. We did not take the metro due to pick pockets and recent events in London so location was important to us.
We stayed on the non-smoking floor(6). The room was very small but quite adequate. The bathroom was very nice, recently remodeled.
Be sure to eat at the Grand Cafe, an upscale brasserie, near the hotel. The seafood, onion soup, and desert were very good.
Definitely one to return to.
The rooms are quite small and the bathroom a bit cramped but that is usually the way with Paris hotels. However, it was very clean, the beds very spacious considering the size of the room (at least 6' wide!) and when we were in Paris the temperature was about 32 degrees Celsius but the air conditioning in the room worked marvellously. Also the air conditioning wasn't too noisy so it was ok to have it on it's middle setting all night which ensured a very good night's sleep. Some hotels have air conditioning which will only work while you are in the room but here it was left on all day.
Our room was on the top floor (level 6) and at the back so the view was of the back of another building but that did mean it was quiet. The continential breakfast is a little uninspiring but not bad. The lifts are quite slow. The staff are friendly and helpful and were happy to look after our bags on our last day in Paris. Check out is by noon, but we left our bags safely behind reception from about 10 - 4 on the last day so we could do some sightseeing unemcumbered.
Although it is very centrally located we did find that it seemed a long way to walk anywhere but I think that was mainly due to the heat and unsuitable shoes! I love Paris in the summer, when it sizzles, but it doesn't make for ideal sightseeing weather.
If you like professional, helpful, reliable, sterile and impersonal, then this is the hotel for you. We will definitely return to this hotel soon.
I echo the opinion of other reviewers about the splendid condition and the great location of this hotel. But what really impressed me was the friendliness and the helpfulness of the staff. They are always smiling! Their advice and directions helped make our very first visit to Paris a memorable one. Stay here.
This is a lovely hotel and we enjoyed our stay here. The staff were not very friendly, but the pretty room and great location made up for this. The rooms were not overly big but were cute, the breakfast was not nice but this didn't matter with lot's of cafes in the area.
Great Hotel, Location and Excellent Staff
In a nice neighbourhood - close to Metro (Opera), shopping (Gallerie), Louvre, Champs Elysees etc. We were able to walk to all the major attractions.
The staff was very helpful and conversed in good English.
WiFi access (with extra charge) and FREE breakfast that was very good.
Nice clean room.
Great Location, Friendly Staff, Small Room
This was my first trip to Paris and we stayed only one night, but we found this hotel to be perfect for our purposes. Only 2 blocks from the Metro and in a great neighborhood for walking, we would definitely recommend this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful (we speak no French).
The room we had would be small for a long stay with large suitcases, (typical for large cities) but it was very clean and newly renovated. The only drawback was the "king" bed was actually two twins pushed together. I would recommend getting a room on the street as the interior rooms simply look into a dark space between the buildings.
We booked this hotel on Expedia. Nice hotel, very good location (quartier chic) small but nice room with wifi connection, helpfull staff (we speak french). Very good 3* hotel for the price in Paris. october 29 to nov 3.
Nicely located, quiet with nice service
This was our first trip to Paris at the tail end of a business trip (April 2004). We chose the hotel because we had Best Western points that came with our air package. We spent 4 days and enjoyed it very much. The rooms are small but clean and well appointed. Location was very nice at one block from the Opera house and was very convenient for picking up the red bus for touring. The Louvre was an easy walk and many shops for brousing. Many restaurants nearby to choose from. The complimentary breakfast was nicely appointed and the staff was eager to please. We changed rooms to one that looked over the front street so that we could see what was going on (though the street was a side one and actually not much was going on). The first room offered faced the back of another building so it was quieter but not as interesting. I suspect that rooms are of different sizes so you may want to ask for a larger one at check-in. We are fairly particular about cleanliness and service and usually stay at more luxurious hotels but this one was very nice and we would recommend it.
Great hotel, great location, great staff.
Stayed again at hotel l'Horset Opera for a Weekend in Mid October. Excellent location near the Opera Garnier and Louvre Museum, just steps away from all of the department stores and the fashion boutiques. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our recently renovated room was clean and comfortable, had air-conditioning, and Internet wireless connection.
The whole staff is very detail-oriented. The man at the front desk helped us plan many tours and made reservations in very nice and good restaurants.
There is a metro station (Opera station) conveniently at 2 minutes walk from the hotel, which will take you anywhere in Paris in a matter of minutes. Very convenient for the Roissy bus from Charles de Gaulle Airport, which stops at Place de l'Opera.
Also, there is a RER stop right there, and several different metro stops on many of the major lines within a few blocks, thus I've always found this to be the connected area of Paris. Great for business travel!
I highly recommend this hotel and we are planning to go back next month for christmas shopping!
Loves the Hotel L'Horset Opera
This small but private hotel in the Opera area, near Galleries Lafayette was a great place to stay. It provided a convenient and quiet location. Our recently renovated room overlooked a seldom used one way side street yet was minutes from shopping or a short walk to the Louvre. Our ample continental breakfast included a variety of cheeses, fruits and other choices. The room service was limited, although they would deliver the same breakfast to your room at no additional charge. Limited restaurant service here but we planned to dine out anyway. My husband had a few problems getting the WiFi system to work but eventually got his internet connection. The Roissy bus from Charles DeGalle comes directly to the back of L'Opera Place, a few blocks away. This is a great weekend away spot. Because its relatively new, it wasn't listed on any of the other Tripadvisor spots. It should be on them as a wonderful option. We would go back in a minute!

An exciting day today as we revisited again the d'Orsay, but this time in a small guided tour of 4...us and Rosemary and Les! We were very good and walked down to where the 2 museums are situated, either side of the Seine. A quick bite of lunch near where we stayed last time in the Latin Quarter was followed by a brisk walk a few blocks to ...
... some French red wine that one of the Australian women offered to us. We sat for about 45 minutes, enjoying the serenity before kicking off again to get closer to the palace.
We entered the immaculately manicured gardens of Versailles just behind the palace and watched a fountain show in one of the man-made lakes. I really wish we had some more time to have explored the gardens, it was so big and I am sure we would have got lost in there somewhere.
... in front of it for photos, gawked for a few minutes, grabbed a sandwich for a very late lunch and hightailed it back to the metro.
By this time, we were cutting it a little close for our scheduled departure on the Eurostar. Managed to read the signs and finally figure out we needed to be upstairs. Why was everyone milling around...ah, police had to come clear the area because of a suspicious box! So no one had gone through ...
... never been a watch person. I used to think that it would be too much of a hassle for me to take it off every night before bed. I had time to spare, and thought it would be neat to see the styles of watches inside. I walked in and was greeted with a "bonjour" from several employees. They all looked very prim and wore simple black business casual. I stopped by one kiosk and saw the one: a Mona Lisa Swatch. It was a colorful Mona Lisa with glasses on it, and ...
... morning in Paris gave us a lightning quick visit to the Louvre. We had about 2 hours so we saw as much as we could and peeked at the Mona Lisa on the way out. Now THAT was exactly as big as I thought it would be...I don't know why everyone says it's so small! Now we are aboard our train to Nice watching the countryside fly by! I am looking forward to getting back to the relative warmth of the south! Ok that it for now I think! ...
