      Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Paris Opera la Fayette

      Por encima de la media


      Este hotel está situado en una zona tranquila de Paris, pero bastante céntrica, a medio minuto del metro...

      Habitaciones de buen tamaño y buen bufé de desayuno. No tenéis por qué tener ningún problema.

      Very good value option


      We booked our trip to Paris not being too concerned about the quality of the hotel, as it was only going to be a base for us and we didn't want to pay over the odds. Considering what we paid, we were pleasantly surprised by the standard of this hotel! The location is excellent, close to two Metro stations and is situated down a fairly quiet street. Staff were courteous and helpful and spoke English

      Our double room was a reasonable size - clean and comfortable and with a decent bathroom. Continental breakfast was plentiful, a good selection of meats, cheeses and pastries. It was served until 10:30 in the restaurant or you could have it brought up to your room, at no extra charge, until 11:00.

      For a budget hotel, this was probably as good as we could have hoped for in Paris.

      Deserves consideration for value/location


      This is a quiet hotel off the busy streets. The sound problem is not with the hotel, but with who you get for a neighbor. The walls are not an acoustical barrier. The bathroom is modern and spacious with an exceptional shower for a European hotel. The breakfast is above average with cooked eggs and sausage as well as cold items. What doesn't appear in the description is the fact that the rooms have a small refrigerator for their honor mini-bar items which can be used to store your own stuff (we eat our main meal at mid-day and snack on baguette and cheese with wine in the room at night). The location can't be beat; there are two Metro stations within three blocks and six bus lines within even less distance. There is a supermarket around the corner and a sanitary aware boulangerie two blocks away (They use tongs and avoid contact with the item and then the money, something rarely seen in French food dispensing establishments). We have stayed in Paris over a dozen times in the last ten years and this hotel is one of the best for value and location.

      Very Central, but needs updating.


      The location of this hotel can't be beat! Very central to both the Metro and Opera district. Many good restaraunts near by.

      My negative comments are to do with the room. I stayed in the downstairs area adjacent to the open courtyard. I booked an Internet special and would imagine that these rooms are what is given to the cheap Internet specials - 115 euro per night. There are about 5 rooms on this level and all are TINY! They are all also slanted to the left making getting around the room difficult. But the main complaint is that the room was dirty. The carpet I wouldn't have walked on in bare feet. It was stained in many areas. We did mention this to the lady at reception (very nice day staff), but she was full. We were only staying one night, so we just got on with it.

      On the whole I wouldn't stay again. I don't mind many things when staying in cheaper accomadation but the one thing that is a minimum is that they are clean, the Opera Frnaklin was not.

      Not all its cracked up top be


      I stayed at this hotel from Nov 28 to Dec 3, 2005. Location is very central, just 200 yds from 2 metro stations, approx 10 mins walk from galeries lafayettes, and many other stores. There are numerous excellent restaraunts nearby. The breakfast every morning was plentifull , with a good range of cerals, juices, yoghurts, breads, tea/coffees, and a hot meal option. Staff were friendly at breakfast and if you arrive close to finishing time at 1030, staff will accomodate you and you wont feel as if they want to throw you out.

      At checkin there was a problem, even though I had an email confirmation of a twin room, the hotel said they had none available. They eventually 'found' one, a non smoking room, which was not my choice. As I booked this room thru a travel agency, I cannot yet confirm whether this was the fault of the agency or hotel itself.

      The room itself was a good size, very warm, as this is midwinter in Paris, with a good sized bathroom.

      However, the problems began with the thinest walls I have ever experienced in 15 yrs of travel. I could hear guests next door coughing!, speaking on the telephone, laughing, and the biggest problem was I could hear the TV. I got my revenge. I turned up my TV. Thankfully, they soon got the message.

      All future guests beware. I was lucky. I got 8 hrs sleep nightly, thanks to quiet neighbours.

      The night receptionist, a young male, is a very rude man. To be avoided. The day staff are extremely pleasant and helpfull by contrast.

      Overall I would stay hear again.

      Please do something with those walls. Get some insulation

      Above average


      This hotel is located in a quiet area of Paris, but its still in the center and only a 30 second walk to the metro station...

      Ok sized rooms, clean and a good breakfeast buffet.. There should be no worries booking this hotel.

      Value with a great location


      Have stayed in the franklin on a number of occasions and as many have said before it's clean and offers great value with a great location and yes although nearing a refurbishment in some bedrooms, it still shouldn't put people off staying. Yet to have a bad experience with the staff, who are always found to be very helpful and there's a good selection for breakfast. The location is very central with the metro within 1 minutes walk (actually you could probably crawl in one minute to the metro it's that close), this leaves the whole of Paris at your fingertips to explore, either by metro or walking to some of the more popular sites (walk to Moulin Rouge 10 mins , sacre coure 10 mins after a short hop on the metro), opera house 10 mins. galleries 5 mins). Looking for food is even easier as there's a selection of goos places right on the doorstep of the franklin ranging from local cuisine to italian to indian and chinese. Always a pleasure to return to this little gem of a hotel.

      Clean and comfortable


      The Franklin is set on a quiet street just off Rue la Fayette. First impressions are good. However, the bedroom, although of a reasonable size and spotlesslsy clean, had seen better days and is probably due for refurbishment although the bed itself was very comfortable. The rest of the hotel was fine.

      Breakfasts were excellent with a choice of fresh breads,pattiserie, cheeses and cold meats - catering for the varied nationaltities staying there. Plenty of hot coffee, tea and chocolate.

      The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from Galleries La Fayette and Printemps so good for shopping and there are a few excellent restaurants locally.

      All in all Paris was beautiful (we were there in October 2005 and the weather was glorious!)and we had a great break and were satisfied with the hotel.

      Clean and good value


      I stayed here in 2 rooms with family namely my husband and myself, two teenage sons and our ten year old son. We found the hotel clean and generally quiet and the staff helpful when asked and courteous at all times. The rooms are small, but big enough, and the long french door windows can be opened for fresh air. The air in the hotel was very pleasant and not at all stuffy like some hotels.

      Although it was September it was still warm weather, perhaps especially so for us Scots who come from the cooler north of Europe, and there was a fan which was fine for cooling us, although air conditioning would be something we would be thinking about for our next trip.

      As in many French hotels there was no tea and coffee making facilities in the room although there was a coffee machine in the foyer. There was a minibar but only one half bottle of water in it, along with the usual spirits beer and soft drinks, so I recommend that you bring some bottled water with you as the tap water is not nice in Paris.

      The beds were comfy and the rooms were very clean indeed. There was a good strong shower and plenty of hot water. Breakfast was served in a very pleasant breakfast room with part glass roof presided over by an exceedingly charming head waitress who made us all feel very welcome and looked after us well. There was hot and cold food and most people would find it very acceptable. I certainly did, although my teenage boys did not like the sausages and were looking for bacon. There were cold meats, cheese, boiled eggs, cereals, canned fruit and prunes, pureed apples, (good if you have a baby), nice pastries, yoghurt, etc. etc.

      We did have one noise problem as a result of having bedrooms looking out to the front of the hotel. On two of the three days of our stay, we adults were woken at 6 am by the very noisy garbage collection lorries. This could very easily be avoided by using earplugs, and otherwise we slept beautifully. The hotel is on a side street and very quiet. There is a good security system at the doors controlled by the concierge.

      All in all, good value and gave us a good base for our short break.

      Handy to Opera House and Montemare .


      My wife and I stayed here 5 nights . This is a 3 star hotel that needs refurbishing but otherwise it's not too bad . The rooms are clean and comfortable . Staff were moderately friendly . Unfortunately the lift broke down 3 days in a row but I have been informed by Accor Hotels , the company owning the hotel , that this problem is being rectified . Other than that , we were satisfied with our stay .

      There are plenty of restaurants and cafes in the area and it's about 10 minutes walk to the Opera House . About 20 minutes walk up through Montemare is the huge Sacred Coeur Church . Its on top of a hill but is well worth the slog up as it's beautiful inside and the view over Paris from outside is great .

A little ways in, a good half way mark to Marie Antoinette's estate, we stopped at a quant little restaurant on the canal. We had to order FRENCH fries, while in France! I must say, America does not know how to cook fries. These were the best fries I ever had, and do not even get me started on the dijon mustard. I think ...

He and I were unable to communicate in French but he was enchanted when he learned I spoke a little Italian. We are now besties for life. For life! I also learned that the hunky fairy food father was in fact a valet. Which also explains why he was walking a motorcylce on the sidewalk. ...

One guy helped Ana and Clara with their bags, when we were going to the train. We had to go to the train to get into Paris, and we had to pay for a ticket, and for some reason Clara's wasn't working so some man let her go through with his, he was very nice! Than once ...

      Today we went to the Louvre. I saw the Mona Lisa (La Jonconde, or Madame Lisa of Smiles), Venus de Milo and so many other famous paintings and statues. Even just the building was a work of art. When the Louvre was built, it was made to be a fortress, but when the construction was complete there was no longer a need for a fortress. That is when it became a palace, chosen because it was a very safe place to ...
