      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Baudelaire Opera Paris

      Perfect Hotel for us


      We have been to Paris at least a dozen times and are happy to report that the Hotel Baudelaire Opera gave us a perfect Paris "fix". Our room was on the second floor and overlooked the street, yes there was noise but that's what we went to Paris for in the first place. We could sit on the sill of our open window and transport ourselves into the soul of Paris life - scooters, pedestrians, baby carriages, patisserie and butcher shops, restaurants, congested sidewalks, traffic jams, we had it all in panavision.

      There was a great little wine shop across the street with an affordable selection of French wines. Soprano's Restaurant (recommended by Sally at the front desk) one block away gave us romance, exquisite tastes and wonderful memories of our 40th anniversary.

      If guests become hung-up on flaws in this hotel, the location, the staff and so on, then they are not looking at Paris for what it is - stunning, brialliant, romantic and a walker's paradise. The Baudelaire Opera is French, that is why we loved it, end of story.

      Very good deal and caring staff.


      I stayed here with my entire family. We booked 6 rooms to attend to a wedding. It was a flawless stay. We got a really good deal, since we were staying for quite a long time (7 nights). we were allowed to check in the rooms at 10 AM, as opposed to the classical 2 PM. We got some very accurate piece of advice from the reception staff regarding restaurants, metro indications and general French culture. The staff is English and American but seem to know about Paris. I have to say that the area has a lot to do with the successful holiday we had. there's restaurants and nice bars everywhere. very safe at night. but quiet since it's on a one way street. also much appreciated, the free internet in the room for my children.

      All the rooms, except from one, had a safe in the minibar.

      Will definitely go back soon...

      Hideous Experience


      Made a booking, paid a deposit, turned up and there was no room for me! The man at the desk was so mean and rude and would not help me find alternative accommodation - which would have been nice considering I arrived so late at night.

      Really good staff and good summer deals


      very helpful on restaurants, bookings, how to get away from tourist traps. Comfy beds and delighful receptionnist who speaks way too many languages.

      Center of Paris, litteraly between the louvre and the opera house. I was very happy to stay there and would definitely recommend it to anyone who is willing to sleep in the heart of the most romantic city in nicely decorated rooms. And yes, I did make my marriage proposal to my girlfriend on the balcony of our room since the Eiffel Tower is so has been! tender memories of our Baudelaire. will go back for wedding anniversaries!

      No Air Conditioning at 122 Euros!


      Clean and friendly but tremendously overpriced. One block north on the rue Saint Anne there is another Hotel with like amenities and rooms at hqlf the cost.

      My Favorite Paris Hotel


      I have stayed at this hotel three times and love it. The price/value is fantastic for the location and the fact that you are in the middle of Paris. There are several metro lines surrounding the area, which makes sightseeing easy. This is a three star hotel, yet they have bent over backwards making dinner reservations for me before I even arrived. I usually leave town with some of the owner's recipes and her daughter's Hermes scarf books. They are always so kind, generous, and helpful. I could never stay anywhere else.

      A most enjoyable stay


      I have stayed on two separate occasions and each time was very satisfied. Linda and her staff are wonderful and will do whatever they can to make your stay pleasant. This is an authentic Parisian hotel so things will be different, but most enjoyable. English is spoken by everyone which can be a real plus for visitors. The 4 Septembre Metro is just steps away and you can get to any part of Paris in just minutes. There is a Mono-Prix store in easy walking distance that has a terrific bakery and nearly anything you might need. Whatever minor faults this hotel has is more than compensated for by the genuine hospitality and ambience of it. I will always stay here when I visit Paris.

      Hotel Baudelaire Opera is GREAT !!!


      Hotel Baudelaire Opera is such a great place!!! We fell in love with it!!!

      This hotel gets its name from the fact that famous writer Baudelaire once stayed here. Situated near metro Opera and Pyramides, it''s a short walk to the Louvre and many other points of interest.

      The rooms are very clean (just refurbished), comfortable, and quiet.The room tariff included a light breakfast (a basket of croissants, pain au chocolat, and baguettes) served with beverages of your choice. You can either have breakfast brought to your room or you can go to the dining room downstairs.

      Service at this hotel is extremely friendly, and English is spoken by all staff. The location is very convenient as there are plenty of restaurants and bistrots, shops, banks, post offices, and metros nearby. We would definitely book here again on future holidays.

      You can book a room there with confidence. The hotel is SO CHARMING, and the staff is SO FRIENDLY... You can't be disapopinted, actually, you will certainly stay there again next time you go to Paris... we will!!!

      Very disappointed


      We were very disappointed. Very small rooms and realy noisy. You can even see the light of the hall comming in when the door is closed. You can barely enter the bathroom and you hear all water-sounds from other rooms (toilet, bath, etc.). Breakfast is expensive for what you get. It is not that close to the Opera, at least 10mins to walk. Some positive points: clean rooms and kind people. But sorry, I won't go back.

      Great location, great staff


      it was really nice, good bargain, in the center of Paris, we were walking everywhere, and the staff is great. definitely would recommend this hotel!

      Au contraire, mon frere.

Instead, we headed off to the cemetery (funny that visiting a cemetery is more appealing that lining up). Spectacular gardens, peace in the middle of the city and free use of the loo. Bargain.

      From there we picked up some chicken, tomato and cheese baguettes and found ...

But a huge and imposing building, intended as a Christian church but alternately through the years used as a ceremonial atheistic building. Famous people interred there, and presidents inaugurated there. We looked through and the crypt was very interesting, a labyrinth below the ground.

We had a bite of lunch, with beer and wine, of course, sitting on the grass in the shade of a large tree. It did feel a little like a country picnic.
