Recently stayed at the Hotel Opera Cadet in Paris and was pleasantly surprised. Hotels in Paris are usually small and basic but this hotel is one notch above that. Ideal for the traveller who is looking for a friendly hotel, with good breakfasts and nice clean rooms.
Located about 5 mins Metro ride from the Galleries Lafyette near the Opera district, the hotel is 1 minute from Cadet Metro stop down a quiet side street. Check-in is very efficient with english speaking staff. The rooms are a good size, with TV, Air Conditioning (very good), a nice bathroom and some rooms have a small terrace which overlooks Rue Cadet. Rue Cadet is a small street with local traders, fruit shops and some bistros at the end of the street which are very nice to eat in.
Buffet Breakfast is available from 7:30 to 10:30 and has a wide variety of food to cater for all tastes, with friendly waiting staff to provide teas and coffees. A courtyard area at the back of the breakfast area allos for Al-fresco breakfasts.
WiFi and PC usage is available but WiFi costs €5 per hour and reception is limited to the main areas of the hotels, and was not available on 2nd floor.
This is one hotel I will be returning to again, not only for the location, good breakfasts and nice staff, but also due to the fact that it is quiet, comfortable and great to come back to after a long day walking the streets of Paris.
