I took it to heart, stopped feeling sorry for myself, and vowed that I would enjoy every moment going forward.
... 4 weeks while she lives with her friend David. David speaks no English, Isabelle a little so was interesting listening to the conversations - I even worked out a few of them. When the French speak slowly you do know a bit of it. Mac woke in a daze and went up cuddling up to David thinking it was Paul - took him ages to come around - was funny to watch. David said why a loving, friendly wee boy :) The neighbour from downstairs popped up to introduce himself - Laurent - and said ...
... the toons it was designed for was the Chipmunks or Smurfs because there was no way in outside of the magical world any of us were going to fit on it, especially after two hotdogs. We made up for the lack of riding with multitudes of dancing and of course a splash of stupidity.
The day was topped off in the evening by the parade. Oli waved his little arm off getting to see all the characters drive by on their cool floats.
... air conditioned, we head up to the roof top which is open & has a great view over the roof tops of Paris. We rest here for a little & enjoy the view.
Next stop we head to Arc de Triomphe on the Champs Élysées, this street is supper busy, it is actually too busy. Anyway it is the worlds craziest roundabout with 12 major avenues converging on it, 8 lanes going around it the inner one being marked by a blue line. note that no insurance company will cover anything should you ...
... was gorgeous and a work of art--the furniture, the carpet, the doors, the kitchen, the bathroom, the view. Absolutely staggering in its beauty and the people were so gracious. The wine glasses were a light purple. The silver was antique. The tablecloth and napkins soft linen. The light was by large candles. The TV was hidden by a screen that dropped down. The meal was delicious--a cold tomato soup with a drop of pesto, some burrata cheese, and a piece of basil ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Baudelaire Opera Paris
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.
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.
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 such a great place!!! We fell in love with it!!!
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!
