This hotel is on Rue Lafayette and straddles three very different Paris neighborhoods. On one side, you have the Ópera area where you can shop at the Galeries Lafayette. On the other side, you have Rue des Martyrs and its concentration of small, independent shops. Finally, you have the Grands Boulevards area where you’ll find theatres, cinemas, and some of the most beautiful covered galleries in the city.
It’s close to the lines 7 and 12 of the metro. Although the hotel is on Rue Lafayette, don’t fret because the rooms are perfectly sound-proofed. The wi-fi works well (but avoid the expensive computer in the reception) and the elevators, while a bit old, are still in fine working order. The cleanliness was fine and the staff was attentive.
