    « Great location modest Hotel Good Price »

    I spent 12 nights at this hotel in August. The location on the right bank is tough to beat. Staff is helpful, particularly Mr. Momo Alavi who went out of his way to help me. The desk staff are absolutely terrific. The hotel is modest, clean and exceptionally reasonable priced. The Lobby is comfortable and ver attractive. It is close to wonderful restaurants of high quality, the metro, bus and Paris Tourism headquarters from which many day tours depart. Walking distance to the Louvre and many other prime locales the area is extremely safe. Prime shopping, bookstores and top quality clothing stores are close as are the grand Parisian department stores. I enjoyed mynstay!

    « Only for the location »

    Arrived at 2 pm after a long trip to be told our room was not ready. Not a good start, no apology nothing. We complained but to no avail. We left and returned a few hours later to be given a room on the first floor. TINY! The room was average at best. The carpet was filthy covered in black marks at the doorway. The bathroom was so small you couldn't swing a kitten in it never mind a cat. The noise from the metro trains running every 2 minutes kept us awake all night. The breakfast is expensive at E13.00 a head so we went to the Paris Baguette at the corner Which is excellent and far cheaper. If its location you are after then fine. If its comfort and a decent nights sleep forget it. Fresh towels every day. Should really make the beds properly not just puul up the top covers.

    « Fantastic »

    I stayed here for two nights in Feb 2017 for a short family break. The location of this hotel is great and is also close to the bus stop that will take you directly to/from Charles De Gaulle Airport. The staff here are friendly and seemed fluent in English too. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others and feel is good value for money.

    « book it without breakfast »

    The breakfast is not worthy of 13 euros. Should get a rate without breakfast. Every hotel in Paris is good location. The receptionist are polite. Room quality is practical. Beware of the altitude of one housekeeper. She is absolutely a Buzz Killer.

    « Great hotel with great location! »

    I stayed at this hotel for the weekend and I loved. Very quite, super clean and very close to the Louvre, and Opera Boulevard. The staff of the hotel is very polite and very helpful. The hotel provides coffee and tea, safe to keep your valuables and refrigerator. I really recommend this hotel.

    « The staff is very polite and helpful »

    Location is excellent. Room is practical and clean. It is a 3 stars hotel by the French standard. Do not compare it by American standard. Try last minutes offer, you could get a good deal. Few minutes walk to supermarkets, restaurants, subway, opera house, cinema. Lady who serves breakfast is very attentive and smily. She makes very delicious eggs if you ask.

    « Great hotel from weekend stay »

    The front desk staff was great. I forgot to print my Louvre tickets before arriving and they were able to help get our tickets printed. Even though the room is "small" by American standards, it was still great for us (2 adults and 1 preteen). We were gone 90% of the day sightseeing, so we didn't need anything fancy. After we checked out on Sunday, the hotel was able to hold our luggage while we went out and explored Paris before our train departure. This was close to several Metro stops and close to the Hop on and Hop off bus stops. My son like that there was a Starbucks down the street.

    « Great Location »

    This hotel is in a great location close to Opera Boulevard. Spacious room for a French hotel. Pillows and towels are awful. Good front desk service. Good price. Lovely lobby. Easy access to Metro. Good restaurants close by. Quiet room and close to Starbucks!

    « Great location »

    Really nice and quiet room. Fantastic location in 2nd arrondismont. Close to shopping and tourist attractions. Plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance. Close to main train stations via car/taxi.

    « Fabulous location! »

    A brilliant hotel, small and cosy. The room we stayed in was small but well designed. The bed was comfy, storage OK for a short stay. There was also a safe and a mini bar. The bathroom was a good size with bath and shower. Everything was spotless. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Checkout a very civilised mid day. Location is fabulous, moments from the Opera and the metro, yet on a quiet side street. A real gem!

    « Comfortable at a great location »

    It is a small cozy Best Western in a quiet street in a great area. A lot of good restaurants and bakeries near by, very close to subway stations, and walking distance to the Louvre, d'Orsay, Saint Honoré, Pl. Madeleine, and Tuileries. Good free wifi and helpful staff. Great night sleep at a great location. Would definitely stay there again.

    « Great location »

    The rooms were small and nothing special (although very clean) but the location is this hotels big plus and I would consider choosing it again for just this reason. Didn't have breakfast at the hotel so can't say anything about it. The wifi at the hotel was free and the connection was good.

    « Great price and location »

    Great tiny hotel in great location! The bedroom is not so big but has everything you need. The staff is really friendly and gave me a lot of tips about Paris. The hotel is surrounded by a lot of great restaurants and an amazing patisserie where you can have your daily croissant. Really worthy!

    « Great location. Reasonable price. »

    The hotel is ideally located close to major sights, transportation hubs, shopping and dining. Rooms are typical parisienne small but clean and everything works. Breakfast option gives you good variety. Staff was very accommodating and professional. We will definitely come back to this hotel.

    « Value and great location »

    The location of this hotel is ideal for being in walking distance to many of the museums that you would like to see. Also if you like Asian food-found many within a couple of blocks. Especially Ramen and Korean. Staff at front desk were helpful and friendly. A Starbucks a couple blocks away--I'm addicted to the unsweetened Passion iced tea. Didn't have AC but for this trip that turned out not to be a problem.

    « Worst bedroom ever..... »

    The location was awesome! The attendents very helpful, but, the room, was awful! Everything so old, so badly maintained, looks so dirty! This was the worst room I stayed! And, it was the best of their rooms! I paid the highest rate for that!

    « Cozy hotel in a great Paris location »

    We spent 5 nights at this cozy hotel. The Hotel Gaillon is located about half way between the Louvre and Opera house.The best part of this hotel is the location. It is within walking distance to the Opera house, Louvre, and Seine. Typical in the sense that it is old, but was very clean and staff accommodating. We Had a good breakfast the one time that we used it. It is also close to subway access with many restaurants nearby. My wife had the misfortune of falling and fracturing her shoulder on the day before we were scheduled to leave. We made it to the hotel (we were only a block away) and they took care of us. They recommended The American Hospital as they said we would wait all day at any French hospital,They also ordered the taxi, gave the taxi directions, provided us breakfast, coffee, and water while we were waiting for the cab. In general were very solicitous. This hotel was recommended to us and we recommend it also. I am sure you can find other 3 star hotels for less cost but the location was ideal for us.

    « Great location, comfortable room »

    We decided to choose a chain hotel to stay while we were in Paris and we were not disappointed at this one. The beds in our room were very comfortable and the room itself had enough space, unlike some other hotels we heard. The location of this hotel is excellent, conveniently located close to Pyramides station and Opera station, and only 5 min walk to Louvre and 3 min walk to the Opera House. We feel safe staying in the opera area, i.e., away from Louvre and close enough to get there by foot.

    « Great location, good rooms, average hotel »

    Staid 3 nights in Gaillon Opera with the family. Excellent location, walking distance from Opera, Grands Boulevards, Louvre. 6 persons (4 kids) in 2 nice rooms on last floor, under the roof, so it was a bit hot in the evening of sunny summer days. Rooms were very clean, good beds. Bathrooms were a bit small and "plastic" but the shower was good and clean. Service was restricted to bare polite minimum, you carry your luggage from the taxi to your room yourself, in 3 or 4 trips as the elevator is tiny and slow. There were works on going in the building next door, noisy and dusty especially in the morning (no grasse matinee...). Breakfast was disappointing, in a confined window-less basement room, so I guess it is better to take a cafe croissant in a nearby cafe. Overall satisfactory, but nothing remarkable in this hotel apart from the price: a bit high with regard to services. Then again, great location.

    « Flattered to deceive »

    Well the bed was good and it was fairly conveniently situated but that was far from enough for over €200 pn. Initial surprise at space and facilities were overcome by second day ... the settee which looked useful was just in the way making it difficult to get to bed/kettle/safe. The modest cupboard come wardrobe was without shelf and 'the Special Shower' wasn't special at all as (we think what was the 'special' bit) the 'rainforest' element didn't work and couldn't work ... but the other bit functioned OK. The biggest let down was the tea making stuff: NO TEA just 2 bags of herbal infusion and they weren't replaced daily. PAPER CUPS and SMALL PAPER CUPS at that. We considered these a DISGRACE for any hotel with BEST WESTERN in the title ... and even these weren't replaced every day
