Following a two week tour of Morocco, my wife and I extended our trip with a four day stay in Paris at the Hotel L'Horset Opera. This is a relatively small boutique hotel in a very good location. It is within easy walking distance of many great Parisian attractions such as the Opera and the Louvre, and within easy walking distance to shopping, restaurants and the Big Bus Tours office among many other things.
The hotel itself is located on a side street about two blocks from the famous Paris Opera. It is unassuming but very nice. Upon entry into the smallish lobby there is a bar to the left and a small lounge area to the right with the reception desk straight ahead. Be careful upon entry as there is a short step up to the entryway floor. My wife tripped and fell the first evening when we went into the hotel. The hotel staff were very concerned about her fall and helpful but my wife insisted that she was OK, just a bit embarrassed.
The staff are very friendly and helpful and our room was small but well appointed with a very comfortable queen size bed. Our room was on the third floor and the exterior wall had a large drape that could cover the entire wall of windows. The closet was quite small and there really wasn't any good place to stash our suitcases. On the desk was a nice bronze statue. We didn't use the TV much at all but there were several English language news channels to choose from. The wi-fi worked well and seemed rather fast.
There are two elevators and they are rather slow and make a rather funny noise while you wait for them to get to your floor, however, they work well and we seldom had a long wait during our four day stay. Everything we saw in the hotel was very clean and in good repair. There is a dining room located off the lobby where they only serve breakfast (18 Euros) for the buffet. It was quite good and they will also make omelets or other breakfast dishes for you upon request.
While this is by no means a resort hotel and does not have resort style amenities, it is a very nice, clean and comfortable place to stay on your visit to Paris in a very good location and I recommend it. less
