"Excellent hotel, perfect location within walking distance of the Louvre."

We were extremely pleased with this choice. The sat nav got the car to the door without difficulty and it was safe in their underground carpark for the stay (cost 18 Euros per day). We did a lot of walking round from choice but there is a very useful metroline justyards from the front door. Room was a very generous size and everything worked. Breakfast croissants were wonderful!

"Ideal location. Very helpful staff. Excellent contemporary facilities. Best value in Paris"

Wonderfully located in small street at heart of Opera district. Metro within 50 metres. Very clean and contemporary. Very helpful personnel. Impossible to find any fault. You must try Chartier restaurant within 200 metres.

"Excellent hotel in great location within central Paris. Close to all amenities. "

Lovely hotel in great location. Close to shops, good restaurants and Metro station. Perfect for our needs. Room was spacious and clean. Breakfast of good quality although a bit `samey`. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a short break in this beautiful city.

Guest rating:



Hotel Opera Cadet was very clean, room was good, staff were very polite and helpful in every way. The continental breakfast was excellent and more than adequate. The hotel is well situated to the Metro, and easy to get to with buses. We would have liked tea and coffee making facillities in the room, otherwise we were impressed and would not hesitate to go there again.

Great location on a pedestrian side street. Lovely and clean. Friendly staff. Good price with a good breakfast as well. Rooms pretty small, but think they are like that in Paris anyway.

Guest rating:


"excellent location"

Right near the centre of paris about a 15 minute walk from the louvre. The room was fine, niether budget or luxurious. Also it was very easy to acces the public transport as there was a bus stop and a metro stop just outside making it very good for seeing all the sites.

"Comfortable hotel with polite & friendly English speaking staff"

Stayed 3 nights on an Anniversary break. We don`t usually trust 3* hotels in big cities but we needn`t have worried. The room wasn`t large but frankly I`ve stayed in smaller rooms in London 4*. This was clean & modern & had all we needed- aircon, fresh towels/toiletries each day, TV & a very comfy bed. Breakfast- in France we`ve often just got rolls & coffee. Here were cereals/fresh fruits/yoghurts/pastries/baguettes/OJ/tea/coffee all in a light, pleasant room or an enclosed courtyard. Bar & spacious conservatory, two lifts & underground car park. Metro & bus stop 20 secs away but only a 15 min walk to l`Opera - we walked from the Latin Qtr one night in under 30, so it`s well placed. Lovely boulangerie across Rue Cadet, range of small shops/cafes, & plenty of restaurants within a 5 min walk. Hotel staff in Paris don`t have the best reputation for politeness and friendliness but the folks here were unfailingly pleasant & helpful. Thoroughly recommended & we`ll stay here again next time.

"Ideal location for shopping and sights"

We found the hotel and staff excellent. The rooms were very clean and confortable. After staying in London at double the price it seemed very good value.The hotel is very close to all the main shops and also the Opera and other attractions. There are also plenty of good restaurants and bars nearby. The metro station was also very close to the hotel. We would use the hotel again on our next trip to Paris.

"Well situated for most parisien attractions. Helpful, friendly staff"

Well removed from the hurly-burly of the main rues, the hotel is in a quiet street containing a good choice of local shops and close to several bar/restaurants; we particularly recommend "Le 7ieme Sens".

Great location for exploring Paris, the rooms are spacious and clean and the breakfast was fulfilling for a day walking round Paris

Guest rating:


"A Little Gem in a Central Location"

Opera Cadet was chosen by location and customers feedback. As a retired Hotelier I could not find fault with this spotlesly clean, comfortable hotel. The hotel is situated in an interesting side street where parisian life goes on during the day and evening, yet is only 10 minutes walk from both the opera house and the railway station. We will definatly make Opera Cadet our Paris hotel in the future

Staff were wonderful and very acomadating!!!!! Highly recomend

"Comfortable room, though small. Great breakfast, welcoming staff, handy location close to the Metro"

Good value for money at the discounted price. Would definitely consider staying there again, subject to pricing.

Guest rating:


"Clean and unfussy hotel"

2 adults and 2 small children were accomodated easily in the one room . The only thing to note is that it had an opening window ( which I personally like) which is a consideration if you have active children

Guest rating:


"Good central location & secure car park. Rooms & breakfast OK. Staff very helpful. "

Difficulty finding and acessing Rue de Cadet due to one way system. Also, underground car park height restricted and had to remove top box. Hotel sent staff out to help. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Rooms good standard (except 3rd bed in triple room very hard). Metro station nearby. Would recommend.

"Good location with 3 metro stations close by. No cooked breakfast was a little dissapointment."

Guest rating:



Very nice hotel and pleasant staff. Good location which enabled us to get everywhere we wanted to go. The hotel provided us with parking (at additional cost) which was ideal as we were on route to another location.The hotel staff were also able to assist us with some sight seeing tips.I am trying to think of something negative - no coffee/tea making facility in the room, thats it!

Guest rating:


"Excellently situated and very quiet"

The room was small but manageable. Very good position for sightseeing on foot or by public transport. The staff were very polite and helpful and the breakfast provided a good start to the day.

Guest rating:


"good location , well appointed hotel"

We enjoyed 3 nights in the Opera Cadet. Hotel room was a bit on the small size but clean tidy and well appointed . Found the safe and mini bar fridge very useful. Close to Gare du Nord and some good restaurants near by. Friendly English speaking staff . Rooms over the street a bit noisy but where is quiet in Paris.

Guest rating:


"Great Hotel in the heart of Paris"

We couldn`t fault the hotel at all. Superb location right next to the Metro in a little side street off Rue La Fayette. The room was a good size and very clean. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Overall a good hotel to stay in and would happily return there when holidaying in Paris again.

"Very helpful staff in a great location"

There was some confusion when we arrived as we had contacted the hotel a few days before to check that their cot would be big enough for our son. This message had not been passed onto the reception staff, but they were extremely helpful and soon changed our room to one with three beds.We found all of the staff helpful and friendly, despite our appaling French. Most of the staff spoke excellent English.The breakfast was basic, but good quality and there are plenty of good restaurants and cafes around the area catering for all tastes.The hotel itself is quite, despite being just off a busy road.Overall, a good hotel for all tastes, but especially helpful if you have young children.
