Best Western Premier Opéra Faubourg is ideally located at the crossroads of important Parisian districts such as the district of the famous shopping malls in Paris close to the Opéra Garnier, the quarter of antique dealers next to La Salle Drouot and the district of Martyrs.
"Small but Decent"
As with most reasonably priced hotels in the heart of Paris, the room was tiny. With barely room to walk around the bed, it was a cozy fit. But the room was clean (although it smelled very strongly of perfume) and included all necessary amenities. It's a short (less than 5 minute) walk from two metro stations, a 15 minute walk from Gare du Nord and walking distance to the Louvre (about 20-25 minutes). The neighborhood is rather busy, but that means there are plenty of restaurants and small markets nearby. The staff is very helpful and fluent in English. The hotel does have a single (small) elevator.
We had a wonderful experience at this hotel. The rooms were clean and quiet, despite being on a busy street. The breakfast was more than adequate, especially the coffee, bread, cereal and fruit. But it was staff that made it a superior experience. They were never too busy to give suggestions, make dinner reservations, etc. We left something of value in the room when we departed. It was easy to communicate with them via email, and they found the item and promptly sent it to us. Some Americans might find the rooms small, but that is typical for Europe. We liked the location. Wander one or two streets off rue Lafayette and you will find charming cafes and families going about their normal activities. It is also close to shopping, like Galeries Lafayette. Treat yourself to a drink on top of this department store and see the top of the opera house and many landmarks.
This was our first trip to Paris and we chose this hotel based on location and it was perfect. The hotel was very nice and just as per the pictures, it was a bit smaller than we are used to, but it was typical room size for Paris so we didn't think it was an issue. I would definitely stay here again if we ever came back to Paris.
"Superb Staff, excellent location"
Staff couldn't be more pleasant or helpful. They spoke perfect English and humoured my schoolboy French. We arrived very early but were able to check in and be in our room almost 4 hours before official check in time..fantastic customer service. The room was lovely and clean with tv with just a couple of english speaking channels, a safe, free wifi, tea and coffee facilities and very limited toiletries ( maybe they thought I was travelling alone' ) The location is fine with 2 Metro stations within 100 metres of the front door.
"Clean, friendly and comfortable "
Stayed overnight for football trip, staff were welcoming and friendly. As rooms weren't ready they pointed us in the direction of a decent restaurant for lunch Rooms were small but clean and did what was required. Shower/bath area very small but not a major issue
