    « Nice Hotel »

    The Hotel is not situated in the Center which was perfect for us as we wanted to avoid the trafic. It is though very good connected with the City Center though the Metro and the Bus facilities. The Staff was very friendly and Open. Hotel room was clean and very modern. The only minus was the bathtub which was not so clean, it had dust and other small stuff. We would totally recommend this Hotel as for us it was very convenient also from the price Perspective.

    « Cozy Hotel Near Shops and Restaurants »

    I stayed at this hotel for 4 days in late September. Check in was swift and easy. The room was clean but very small. I stayed on the top floor and the ceiling was slanted near the window making it a bit awkward to move around comfortably on one side of the room. I don't know the size of their other rooms but the one I stayed in was only large enough for two people. The hotels description of their bar/lounge area is a bit exaggerated. I wouldn't call it a bar at all. Perhaps a counter with pantry space that housed alcohol. I didn't eat the breakfast there but there are plenty of markets and restaurants in the area. I felt very safe in this part of town. I didn't use their taxi service; I opted to Uber around town. Also, the hotel is fairly close to landmarks like the Arc de Triomphe (about 7-8 mins away driving) and the Eiffel Tower (about 11-12 mins away driving). Room service is pretty expensive. I didn't order any food. The mini fridge in the room is well stocked with a variety of beverages. The staff that I did encounter (front desk, checking in and out) were very nice and helpful. Overall it was a comfortable stay and very affordable. I would stay again but I'd just get a larger room.

    « I don't recommend this hotel »

    It took over 30 minutes for them to find our reservation (which was pre-paid) and check us into a room. When we opened the hotel room with our "key" there was a gentleman already in the room. He had requested a change of room because of "security" concerns, the desk clerk had not entered the change in the computer. 30 more minutes of this upset gentleman yelling at the hotel desk clerk through an interpreter, we were issued his original room with a broken lock. They gave a room with a broken lock to two women over 60 years old. Our choice was that room or the street. We put the coffee pot in front of the door so it would make noise if someone entered our room in the middle of the night. This hotel is not near any Metro or RER rail lines, so transportation was a bit of a challenge. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean.

    « Front Desk cheating guests on transport »

    Requested a taxi though said I was considering calling them myself. Front desk said it was better if they called the taxi and coordinated it. They have a special €55 price to Orly. I asked what taxi company they use and they said it was G7. The taxi dropped us off but couldn't use any of the taxi lanes or park in front of the airport - we had to drive to their parking. He had no change so has to go inside and return. I asked which taxi company he was from and he said he was a private company arranged by the hotel called Andy Travel. My brother-in-law took a cab outside the hotel for €37. A G7 registered taxi, arrived in half the time. BE WARNED ABOUT THIS HOTEL. THE FRONT DESK WILL NOT OFFER YOU COMPETITIVE TRANSPORT. I wonder what they get in return?

    « Excellent hotel for a sightseeing holiday »

    This hotel is in a great position if you want to travel as its close to the train and bus services. There is also a good selection of bars and restaurants nearby. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel is lovely and while we were there a small bar was being developed. This facility will enhance the hotel further.

    « 3 Days in Paris »

    We stayed at this hotel from 9/2 to 9/5/2016. Our room was clean, comfortable, and spacious. The bathroom was super clean but needed more towels and soap. The location was wonderful!!! Our room rate included breakfast and it was hot with lots of choices, coffee,and juices. The neighborhood was wonderful. There are restaurants everywhere and you won't be disappointed. Bus and train lines within walking distance and UBER is also a great option. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will definitely use this hotel again!!!

    « Not prepared for breakfast. »

    There were not enough plates or food for the about of seats the breakfast room holds (30). Had to wait for the attendant to return with more plates. She returned with more eggs, bread, sausage, juice, but no plates for 15 minutes of waiting. Every seat was occupied but not everyone could eat at once. Do not bring groups here.

    « Unexpected renovation »

    We stay for 3 nights, planning relaxing weekend in Paris. Arrived on taxi to hotel, what we see - renovation! All dirty outside and on reception. Family was shocked. No info on a web -page, no info on a reservation confirmation. Unprofessional! Elevator working only from second floor, not a best news when u have 4 luggages. Tiny stairs. Noise of renovation on early morning and breakfast time. Breakfast Personal rude and don't speak on English. We wait 30 min when food will be refreshed. Rooms was good. Bed was perfect. A/C working well and not loud. Very friendly stuff on reception, very helpful.

    « Ideal »

    Stayed with a friend for 3 nights, great location and easy to get to. 5 mins walk from Rome metro, just take RER from CDG to Gare de Nord change to metro at La chappelle line 2 (blue) and get off at Rome. Walk alongside railway line. Check in simple, all staff very helpful and pleasant. Room decent size, shower good, wi fi good, hairdryer not too powerful but I have no hair. Girl I went with took a while to dry. TV had 4 English news channels. Undergoing a reception refurbishment but don't be put off. Good little off license next door, don't go to Jean Bart on the corner, they'll tell you to take a seat and take ages to come and get your order, after a while we left. Plenty other places in Rome area to eat or drink in. Try the Wagon near the Rome metro. All in all a great little hotel and very good value. If going to Catacombs book or go very early.

    « do not understand where it got 4 stars »

    Spent there a week. The staff is really nice and tries to be helpful. English is not a problem. Was not asked for smoking or no-smoking room, but no problem, I could enjoy my pipe with midnight emails. Rooms out from the streets very dark and lights very poor. Together with small room and dark carpet i had bit uneasy feeling. Breakfast are bitterly overpriced. Continental breakfast in underground room. It would be on the edge if half price. To pay this money I expect much better choice and cook to ask me how I like the egg. For a short stay and access to Paris centre might be still a good choice but I will move to different one next time.

    « Great little hotel »

    We stayed six nights at this hotel in June 2016. It is a bit out of the way but well worth staying here. The closest metro stop (Rome) was about a 10 minute walk. However, there was an RER train station across the street with regular trains to Gare St. Lazare where you could connect to any transit you wanted. The ride to Gare St. Lazare was only 5 minutes. There are also multiple bus lines steps away. The hotel is small (about 45 rooms) on six floors with a very good elevator. We were on the top floor and it was quiet and comfortable. The bed was excellent and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We had breakfast (extra 17 Euros) one day and it was not very good so we went out to breakfast after that. There are many options in the neighborhood. We also found a great dinner restaurant called Il Paradiso not far away where we ate three times. The hotel was a terrific value and we would definitely stay there again. The lobby was under renovation when we were there and was a bit of a mess but should be very nice when it is complete. The front desk also loaned us a wifi hotspot device that we used all over Paris. It was great to have free wifi wherever we were in Paris.

    « Strange Experience »

    The room was pretty nice, confortable bed, nice bath. But there has been some things that made our stay in Best Western Opera Batignolles not great. First, the bath screen was really small, and because of that, when we bathe, the entire floor got wet. The second thing was that after the room service, they didn´t replenish nor bath soap, coffee or sugar bags and we had to buy more in the market.

    « Good hotel for good price »

    Myself and my husband stayed here in April 2016 for three nights and weren't disappointed.We arrived pretty late, and the guy on the desk Dhjafar was incredibly helpful-he had a foyer full of visitors, all stealing the breakfast fruit that had already been laid out, and were rude, pushing into myself and my husband etc. He sorted it out perfectly. The room was really tasteful and the beds larger than the double listed. The TV was good, the bathroom lovely and the shower was great. (I hate little white hairdryers attached to walls of bathrooms-that would be my only complaint, especially when it kept switching itself off!). Really good for the price. The location is also a great seller-pretty near a metro, far enough out of the city that there aren't many tourists. The area is very much a young families area, with mums and dads out on a sunny day in the beautiful Batignolles Park with their children-very idyllic. I thoroughly recommend Il Paradiso restaurant, the Scoop me a cookie shop, and all the bars around there-it's lovely. I had a thoroughly pleasant stay at this hotel, and I look forward to staying again.

    « Average at Best »

    We stayed here for the 6 nations, and as the wife booked the room we ended up in Paris for a week. First off Booking.com didn't take our money, so we ended up paying at the hotel which as I used a debit card meant I incurred charges. The hotel is situated outside of the center of Paris, this however is not a problem, plenty of bars restaurants etc in easy walking distant (this is needed as the hotels food is over priced). Also its only a 10 min walk to the metro, defo best way to travel 1.80 euro one way, better to buy a 2 day or week pass. We walked to the tower took about an hour and lost a few pounds :) The hotel advertise tea/coffee facilities, which was ok to start with, but they don't top up the tea up unless you ask at reception, which they will proudly give you one teabag and 1 sugar! One evening I asked for teabags and they didn't have any, the breakfast room was locked and the guy behind reception didn't know where the key was, about an hour later a knock at the door and he proudly produced 4 teabags (for today and tomorrow he said lol) The air-con wouldn't turn off so the humming kept us awake on and off, again told reception, so they just turned it off rather than fix it, so evenings it got rather cold. The shower curtain hardly kept the water in, we had a ground floor, which was quite noisy at times from the road behind and from other guests coming and going. Would I stay here again NO, but then again I probably wont do Paris again and if I do wont be for as long. Staff to be fair our friendly, but the hotel could do with a touch up. Only 3 English channels, very good internet.

    « Good Quality No Frills Value for Money Hotel »

    Located outside of City Centre with a few nearby bars and restaurants. Hotel is pleasant and well run with very nice rooms. No restaurant and just a small Bar as part of reception. Euro 10 in a taxi into the centre of Paris. Good choice of buffet breakfast

    « AAA+ »

    Not my first stay here and again everything perfect, but with a big plus! Having to move around a lot around Paris and needing the internet continuously, this can rack up quite a bill. However, the hotel provided me mobile G4 multi-gig internet access. Just a small, cigarette pack sized box ... for free! Now thát is service! Besides the great service, the always very friendly and helpful staff, the hotel is well placed in a friendly neighborhood, just a stones throw from a station, bus stop and the famous French 'rental' city bikes (for the dare devils among us).

    « Wonderful Service »

    a perfect hotel for a stay in Paris. The service was excellent. We even received a mobile wifi we could carry with us all over Paris (free of charge). That was a real bonus. The staff helped with best places to go. The bus and the train were within 20 meters of the hotel and cost €2 to Champs De Élysées and less than 15 minutes to arrive there so perfect position. The room was stylist and the bed very comfortable. I would definitely stay again.

    « Perfect :) »

    Booked 2 days before travelling on Lastminute so wasn't expecting 'great' things... but this hotel was perfect for me. Less than a 10 minute walk from Rome metro station, and I also found it easy to walk home to on later nights out in the area! The room was clean, more than big enough and had good tea, always a bonus. In my rush checking out I managed to leave a couple of items behind and these were posted back to me. Can't get better service than that :)

    « Only interested in money »

    I booked this hotel on hotels.com for a very good price compared to what I've seen elsewhere. I booked a rate that clearly said the only time the hotel would take money from me is when I'm checking into the hotel. However two days later I check my bank account and the hotel have charged one night to my card already. I'm not due at the hotel for another 8 months... No where on the booking did it say my card would be charged at any time nor did it say that a deposit at any time would be taken. The hotel are making it that difficult for me to get the money back to the point I'm going via the bank to dispute the charge. Oh and also the foreign transaction fees that I've incurred due to this hotels greed

    Honeymooned here 20 years ago... changes since then are all for the good... OUTSTANDING staff... if you can book with breakfast included, do it (well worth it)... good A/C, excellent location (kitty-corner to train terminal)... excellent neighbourhood for casual park walks with numerous local restaurants

    « No hot water, no service and no real gesture »

    I am highly disappointed with this horrible hotel. The hot water was broken, but the front desk didn't say anything. Someone was smoking right beside our door. Breakfast was half empty - better arrive first if you're hungry! It wouldn't come to the manager's mind to offer a discount to compensate the freezing shower we had to take in the morning. We asked for a gesture anyway and got a ridiculous 10%. How much would you be willing to pay for a room with no hot water ? For Opera Batignolles management, they think it's worth 90€.

    Cleaning service was very good, the room was tidied daily. Room was quite spacious , bed was very comfortable. Internet connection was more than sufficient, it can be used in business applications. Location of hotel is quite good - near the train and metro stations, restraunts, pubs and grocery stores can be found in neighbourhood. I can recommend this hotel.

    « Great hotel »

    The hotel has aircond, that was essential for us as it was incredibly hot in Paris. The room is very nice, much bigger than usual standard room in Paris. It has a good price as well, comparing to the same price for 1-2-3 star hotels closer to the city centre that don't look even half as good as this one. It's a bit far from the city centre but there are a few metro stations around and we even managed to walk from the centre. The staff is very nice and friendly. So highly recommend this hotel especially if you like comfort. It's also very quiet in the room, we had a very good sleep.

    « Average 3 star hotel - good value for the money in paris »

    Average 3 star hotel. Good value for the money in Paris but in a residential neighborhood, close to train and transportation. Area restaurants around the corner were very affordable. Staff was pleasant and spoke english except for the 1 gentleman that I believe was training for the front desk.

    « Run away as fast as you can! »

    The positive about this hotel is the service attitude of the staff, and the breakfast buffet. Besides that the hotel price is completely overrated. The area is not the best ones to stay, during the day you can see a people asking for money, and we were offered with marijuana when walking towards the train station. I did not feel very safe compared to other parts in Paris. The hotel seems to be recently renovated, the rooms are a little bit bigger than the ones you find in the more centric areas. Beside the not so nice area, the breaksfast and the bigger room, the hotel infrastructure is awful. The room I was given stank like sewer, I turned on the A/C but the smell never went away, the carpet right outside the bathroom door was completely soaked (hopefully it was just water), and when taking a shower I could not get hot water at all, one of my travel companions got a different room and there was not hot water either in his room. When I reported the bad smell and the soaked carpet to the recepcionist nothing was done, I could not get another room. Additionally compared to other BW hotels in the area (and I visited a lot during this trip), this one did not offered free soft drinks in the room nor coffee machine, and for the rate you can easily find a better hotel in the area or better located one.
