Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mirific Opera Paris
The staff were beaming and extremely friendly and helpful. We will most definately be staying in the hotel again!
My wife and I stayed there twice last year. You get the best bang for your money. All the employees were very courteous, and the free breakfast was excellent. If you are on a budget, the Mirif is the place.
The hotel was located right around the corner from the metro.
It was basically a clean no frills 3 star hotel, exellent value for e68 double room for 1 night in December.
Breakfast pretty basic with the rooms clean but you have to hold the shower yourself. would recommend to anyone on a budget trip.
For location its the business as the metro runs directly to the Champs Elysees and its only a few mins from the Moulin Rouge.
If you are going to Paris to do some sight seeing, Hotel Mirific is a wonderful hotel to stay at. It is very close to a metro station, has internet and telephone access in the hotel, private bath, and a breakfast in the morning. We went in Nov. and got a triple room for $125 USD. Great deal. There are some restaraunts near the hotel and there is a grocery store just down the road. The hotel has alot of stairs and a lift and the workers were all very nice and helpful. It was a great place to stay for some sight seeing and needing place to stay. It is kind of far from the airport but it is just a few meto stops away from Montmartre. Enjoy.
Mirific - simple but reasonable
We stayed two nights at the Mirific Hotel, 9-20 to 9-22-04. The rooms are small and spartan. A small television is bolted to the wall and there were only five channels to choose from - all French. The beds were firm and clean. The shower nozzle would not stay in position. One of the walls in the bedroom had what looked like coffee spattered on it. The breakfast was a self-serve buffet and all-you-can-eat. It contained a good assortment of foods. The hotel was located about three blocks from the nearest metro, which was rather inconvenient with luggage. The neighborhood was ethnically mixed, with several gyros restaurants in the area. But overall it was a good hotel - quiet and providing a good night's sleep.
Very close to the metro station and very easy to get food (muslim food). If you need a place just to sleep, this hotel is the right place.
A good quality budget hotel
On a 4 night visit to Paris in January 2004, I discovered the Hotel Mirific on the Ryanair recommended hotels list for budget accommodation in the area. Their recommendation was pretty well spot on & hence I recommend 3 stars as well. With only a 5 minute walk to the nearest Metro station (Brochant), this hotel is very convienient to most Paris key tourist attractions. The rooms are small but are clean & have all the modern convieniences you need. I found the staff to be helpful & friendly. If on a conservative budget, there is a nearby supermarket where you can purchase groceries. The dining room (ex wine cellar) is charming but can get a bit crowded when everyone comes for breakfast at the same time!.
Fine for student groups; not ideal
Stayed here with a small group of students. It was booked through Travel Selections (a horrendous educational tour company). Our hotel was changed to this one at the last minute, so I expected much worse. It was clean, and the reception staff was very friendly and helpful. The ladies in the breakfast room (cellar) had issues with making all guests eat on the same side of the room, even if it meant splitting up a group (not sure why, if the tables were set and served in the entire room), but they conceded if we insisted on sitting together at one table. The pole that held my shower was broken, so I did have to hold it in one hand. There are 3 buildings, and it is my understanding that the quality of the rooms declines as the building number increases. Building 1 seems to be the best, building 3 has no elevator and is quite bad.
Good basic hotel
Hotel was good for people holidaying on a budget. Fairly cheap rates when compared to other hotels. Staff were very helpful with any questions. Room was clean and had everything we needed (family of 4). Conveniently located to the metro & good cheap cafes. If you are planning to use the room just to sleep in as most tourists would, then it's fine
Pretty disappointing. Not a three-star hotel at all. Unattractive; not very friendly. We are a family of four and booked a quad and two small beds were squeezed into a small room. There was no air-conditioning and the room was very hot, unbearably so at night. I talked to another guest who also found it impossible to sleep at night and asked to get moved to another room. Rooms were not that clean (e.g. three cigarette ends under one of the beds). Shower did not work properly -- you had to hold it in your hand -- could not fix it in one place. There was no plug for the bath when we arrived either but that was fixed after we asked twice. Breakfast was cold croissant & french stick with orange juice and coffee in a very hot basement / cellar. Television only showed two French channels. Certainly will not return and certainly would not recommend it to anyone.

The shower is so fancy, and I am so tired, that I had to call the front desk to ask how to turn the water on. I felt stupid. The bed is comfy, the room is quiet and Renee and Matthew are just across the way from me. There are 6 floors to the hotel and we are in rooms 601 and 602! Now to bed!

We did have to warn her that we had had some smelly cheese in the fridge as an apology for the odor in the kitchen. The exchange was quick and easy and we were soon on our way back to the Gars de Lyon to drop our bags at our next destination.
