... French where the “eau” was, and telling her we were from “Australie” so we didn’t speak French haha. It didn’t really work, but she was telling us in very rapid French (combined with lots of miming and grabbing our bags), to be careful of pickpockets and told us to keep our bags close. Bless her. We eventually found our hostel, it sat right next to the canal and we managed to score a room that didn’t have bunk beds! ...
... the sun comes out and I decide to try my luck at the Ile de la Cite. It's a nice walk along the river in the evening. The traffic is insane and everyone seems ******. It's entertaining not to be involved. A woman told me I did a good job navigating all the cars, which, thanks, but we have cars in Canada too. She seemed really proud of me for staying alive, anyway. I followed the crowds over to Notre Dame to check it out. It was pretty full with a service going on. ...
... stays in very bad areas not close to anything which kind of sucks, but they do drive us to city centre and pick up up everyday which works out fine. I waisted half a day doing the Versailles Palace trip today, it was extremely disappointing and took up a lot of time I could of spent In Paris. It just wasn't a very nice palace, just looked like a big building. I was extremely impressed with the Eiffel Tower and arc de triumph though, ...
... car via Blablacar) and headed to our hostel. Once we were settled in and got cleaned up a bit, we walked straight to the town, where we stopped for some pizza and wine. We then walked to the Eiffel Tower. By this time it was starting to get dark, and once we got all of our pictures with the tower, it lit up! We walked underneath and around it, and walked over the bridge so we could get more pictures. Once we took all our pictures, we ...
... that his calves looked bigger than the horses leg. He also invented the high heel shoe so that his calf would look better when his portrait was painted. We learn a lot more, but we're both a lot tipsy right now - so we'll just go with a lot of Louis, a lot of calves, a lot of women... Yeah? We spent a solid four hours at the chateau, returned to Ile Saint Louis, grabbed a pint and some French onion soup at a cafe nearby and then headed back to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Lorette Opera - Astotel Paris
If you've been to Paris before and don't need any help from the staff, then this hotel is perfect. It's affordable, the rooms are huge by European standards, the decor is fun and modern, and everything is extremely clean. The location was right in between the center of the city and Sacre Cour. Unfortunately, they had some of the worst staff I've come across. They lost our reservation which they corrected. However, they never fixed it in the computer so they had to deal with the problem all over again when we checked out. Their knowledge of the city was mediocre at best. They didn't listen. When we asked them to split the bill on two credit cards they proceeded to put it on one and then would not correct it and told us that we should just refund one another. When I asked for pillows, I was asked to come to the basement to get them. The incompetence of the staff was a shame because the hotel itself was really quite wonderful.
This weekend we were staying in this excellent hotel. We booked this hotel via octopustravel (link on this site). Directly with the hotel it was fully booked so we had to. Don't expect to get a discount on the site. Everything in this hotel is perfectly ok without anything as surplus. The rooms are very clean, nicely air-conditioned (as it was a nice and warm weekend) but also Paris-like small. The bathroom is also very well kept (they restored the hotel a couple of years ago). The receptionist are helpfull. Breakfast is complete for a french one but for many (like me) a hotel-breakfast isn't complete without bacon and eggs (but therefor you need cooking-personel, which costs). Very positive is the fact that you do not really have the feeling of a big chain-hotel (which Best Western naturally is). Well done.
Brilliant modern hotel,super staff definately return
Super hotel helpful staff, clean bright and very modern bedrooms.
We stayed in the Best Western Lorette opera for 3 nights (31/8/04 - 3/9/04). We were very Pleased. The hotel was spotlessley clean, it reminded me of a showhome! The bathroom was bigger than average the room was great, nice and comfortable and modern. I would definately reccomend this hotel. It is relatively cheap and of a very high standard. There are restaurants and bars in the immediate vacinity and St Georges tube station is literallly a 30 second walk from the hotel. If you go to Paris, you must stay in this hotel!!!
Crazy for it!!
The hotel was wonderful. The design was funky, but maintained an element of sophistication. The only complaint I have, is that they don't serve pains-au-chocolat for breakfast.
Brilliant Hotel. The rooms and hotel in general are beautiful. It is exactly as it looks on the best western website.
It is really well located, only a few yards to the St Georges Metro stop.
Breakfast lovely, but expensive if it is not included in your room rate.
We are going back to Paris and will definitely stay here again.
This is a good hotel, in a pleasant alcove of Paris. The decor is chic, the breakfast tasty, and the service enjoyably subtle.
Were I to visit Paris again in the next few years, I'd defintely go back to this hotel.
Why? Decent price on the internet, close to the Metro, nice enough location, good sized room, clean, friendly staff, close to Gare du Nord, air conditioning, etc etc etc.
This place is great.
I stayed here in July 2004. I really liked it. The hotel is very clean and new. The neighborhood is not the best, only about a mile south of MOULIN ROUGE. As long as you don't walk towards MOULIN ROUGE, you will be fine. I paid about $100 US per night, got it from Expedia. The prices offered by the hotel were a little higher. It's 2 minutes away from the Metro stop. I recommend this place. I would stay there again.
This is a very charming hotel in an excellent location, a 10 minute walk from Montmartre and within easy distance from the City Centre via the Metro. The staff are very helpful which, combined with the cleanliness and attractiveness of the hotel, means that I would definitely return in future.
This is an absolute fantastic hotel in the heart of Monmarte in Paris. Beautiful old building and very new rooms inside. Helpful staff, but good to know a little French as not all staff knew fluent English. Right next to St. George's Metropolitan stop and a 15-20 minute walk to the Museum area of Paris. Very close to Sacre-Coure and right in the heart of Monmarte. Stayed there twice on a recent trip to Europe and was definitely my favorite Best Western hotel.
