An early rise this morning meant tired faces met us at the airport, but the excitement was palpable. Papers were flying too and fro as 41 eager students checked-in their bags. Many were way under but a few strained the scales as they were weighed. Soon it was time for goodbyes and we passed through security to the departure lounge. Now we had all …
... very chuffed with myself! The hotel - an IBIS - was right next to the CDG RER station, and we checked in after an easy journey. We both had naps in our room whilst the French-dubbed 'Home Alone was randomly playing on the TV, then popped downstairs to eat pizza for dinner in the adjoining restaurant. A shower each and a quick re-shuffle of our bags, then we both called it a night and hit the sack to prepare ourselves for a long day of travelling tomorrow! Deej ...
... first purchase. I was impressed with all the 'outfits' I saw in the street and continued on towards Notre Dame via the famous lock bridge where lovers claim their eternal love by locking colourful locks to the bridge and then throwing the key into the river. Much to Cats disappointment we didn't have a lock on us.
Notre Dame was an impressive cathedral. As an European church snob who has been to the Vatican I couldn't help comparing the two (I know that's not fair) and was ...
... sight I don't think you can ever get sick of, past the Hotel-Des Invalides and the Grand Palais, changed buses and travelled along Rue De Clichy to the Moulin Rouge and sat frozen on the top of the bus taking in all the sights!
After thawing out on a glass of red wine and a brandy, we headed out for our last meal, at Pizza Pino a place we had dinner on Friday night.

... couldn't be pokier. Always busy and we always enjoyed their coffee. They sold coffee beans - 21 varieties . Lining one wall were the containers with brass shutes . Would have liked a photo but could never get a clear view. Rode the exterior tube style escalator at the Pompadou Centre. Its architecture is an inside out style - new age. The Musee of Modern Art (from 1902) is exhibited ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Nouvel Opera Paris
I have to say that it was the worst hotel I have ever been to. I know I booked there because it was cheap but I still pretended something a little bit better from a 2-star hotel. I stayed there 7 nights - the room was too small and the window that we had was facing a very small yard. But the worst thing is the staff, they are really ignorant and arrogant. We had various incidents with the staff during this week and here you will find two of them.
Ok hotel. Cheap, clean rooms, tv, clean towels and bed linen.
Good breakfast but not incluted in room rate.
Staff not over friendly a bit ignorant.
But overall an ok hotel.
Beautiful Parisian Hideaway
A beautiful hotel. Excellent location, fantastic decor and wonderfully friendly staff. Don't believe any of the other reviews. For the price, you will struggle to do any better in Paris. The area is colourful and exotic and the locals are extremely friendly. We went for my friend Nick's stag and frankly, it was perfect.
Good place to stay if you're going to be out on the town all day. Rooms are fairly small in size; no air conditioning, but two windows give more than adequate ventilation. Room 603 only has one channel, but the other rooms have more, not that TV was ever really watched by our group who was staying there.
Not wonderful, but OK!
POSITIVE - good central location, nearest Metro station is Ledru Rollin, only one stop away from Bastille. NEGATIVE - slight musty smell from the very tiny en suite shower, wash hand basin was not clean to my standard on arrival, general odour of stale cigarettes, would benefit from some redecoration. OVERALL - our very small, basic double room was on the 4th floor at the front of the hotel, possibly typical for 2 stars, but as this was our first visit to Paris therefore unable to provide comparison. Not wonderful, but OK as a base to see the sights.
We did not experience any impolite staff, but our lack of understanding of the language kept communication to the very minimum.
I stayed in this hotel for five days during my senior year of college, along with four other classmates. STA found the hotel for us and made it sound A LOT nicer than it actually was. The location was okay, with lots of restaurants nearby and a metro stop a few blocks away. However, it wasn't a very clean or friendly part of Paris- there were bums sleeping outside the hotel every night! The hotel staff was not very friendly, the elevators could only hold about two people at a time, and the rooms smelled like urine. The "double" room I had contained two twin beds pushed together, and the bedding was stained and foul-smelling. The towels were clean though and replaced daily. The free breakfast was nice too (even though it was just bread and cheese!). I would not recommend staying here alone, as it is not the best area and the Metro is a few blocks away. My friends and I were acosted one night on our walk back to the hotel by some drunk french men. I would not want to make that walk alone! So go for this hotel if you're on a budget, not staying too long, plan on sightseeing a lot, and are with a group of friends.
Handy and Convenient, if nohting else
I've stayed on a couple of occasions and found it to be useful for its convenience relating to the metro - the Bastille station takes you just about everywhere without too many changes. The restaurants in the area are a bonus too, and just having to walk back to the room after a meal and all the wine you have to drink is so handy...I'll be going back in January with friends, I certainly wouldn't go there on my own
IMPOLITE BORED RECEPTIONISTS, TERRIBLE TOILETS
paris is so romantic this period , and people there are so nic and polite , all of them except those 3 receptionists in this hotel, where is a typical 2 (?) stars hotel and they are so bored with theis job. If i Had the coise i would stay more than the first night, but I made reservation paing all the amount
GOODS-great location, quiet and close to two metro stations BADS-Same check-in & check-out time makes guests wait in the lobby; had to request and wait for housekeeping; room was never vacuumed until after checkout; was charged twice for an extra bed and never got the credit back.
The Grand Hotel Nouvel Opera is a 2 star hotel centrally located near Place de la Bastille. It is quite clean but the hotel staff is terrible: very rude answers and not at all collaborative. A chinese man at the reception is almost blind and deaf and it has blamed me for not telling him my room number in the right way (i tried in French, English and with fingers)!! I paid 50 Euros per room/night for a double; if you pay more then you'd better choose a different one. VERY IMPORTANT: there's NO AIR CONDITIONING, even if some websites report an air conditioning sign.
