    « Thieves »

    Worst Experience Ever. I had money stolen from my locked bag (Euro 1500). I hid my wallet in my bad and locked it, my mistake is that I did not use the safe. For some reason it seemed a bit sketchy I didn't want to use it. I left my key with the concierge and went out to grab something to eat when I came back the money was missing just the cash nothing else. While complaining at the reception a customer who was checking out overheard me and told us (including the concierge, that his bag had been broken which he then showed us) however since he had nothing valuable in his bag he did not file a complain earlier. The manager when she finally met us dismissed this of course even though the receptionist confirmed that a customer was complaining and I was not making this up. She asked me for proof. How does one prove how much cash he is carrying? or that they got robbed? Should I carry a spy camera around? The thing is a person should feel safe when he or she checks into a hotel. This hotel did not give that feeling. I asked the manager if there were any cameras in the hallways, elevator or stairs to which she said No!!! I think the staff is involved the male french receptionist his body language the way he was talking something seemed off including the house keeping staff. The manager comes across as incompetent just my opinion but of course I have no proof for anything. We were later offered free breakfast as compensation, of course we did not accept. I'm not looking to get someone fired, what happened happened. I feel it is my responsibility to share this, If there is a 1% chance this can happen to you my advise is you stay clear of this place find anything else which has cameras!

    « Good Location, close to Metro »

    We stayed for three days in Paris and this hotel fit the bill nicely. It is close to the Cadet metro stop, which is a short 10 minute walk. The rooms are small, but typical for a large European city. Breakfast was adequate, with croissants, juice, coffee, cereal, etc. There were no hot meal options or restaurant available in the hotel. There are many restaurants and cafes in the neighbourhood. Our room came with a bar fridge and a kettle. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was at the back of the hotel and very quiet. The bed was comfortable. We would stay here again.

    « Wonderful stay in Paris »

    My staying in this hotel only add good memories from Paris. I was staying for 5 nights in this hotel. The staffs were very nice. One of the gentleman even kindly offered to help me with my problem with one of shopping place. The room was good with modern touch. The space was okay, not big but also not small. Wifi also worked nicely, no complaints from us. The location of the hotel is also strategic, near to two metros, supermarket, mc donald, starbucks and park. We also can ride bus from bus stop near the hotel to the eiffel tour. Suggestion for improvement: provide the new mineral water and some of toiletries (body lotion) every day.

    « Welcoming,friendly,great location. »

    My sister,nephew & I had a two night stay here.The hotel is well kept,clean & comfortable.The room,though a little small for three,was well appointed,modern bathroom.The beds are really comfortable.The pillows fantastic( hotel pillows are usually like rocks).The staff are extremely helpful & friendly,especially the night manager.No problem with language. Loads of restaurants nearly by.Metro five minutes away.I would highly recommend this hotel and will return one day.

    « Very central and quite place »

    I loved staying in Anjou Lafayette Opera. The hotel is very centrally located still very quite. Staff was very helpful, kind and cooperative. From the room on the top floor you can see the top of Eiffel Tower and Basilica du Sacre-Coeur.

    « Great location. Nice hotel »

    We stayed at this hotel in July 2016. We had a triple room for the 3 of us. The room was quite crammed, and would be more suited as a twin room. Other than that, it was in a great location, was quiet and the staff were very helpful. We caught the Eurostar from London and it was only a short transfer from the train station. We used the metro whilst in Paris, there is a station only 3 minutes from the hotel. The breakfast was tasty and had everything you need. We also had a bar fridge, and tea and coffee in our room which was great. The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and would return.

    « A very pleasant stay! »

    The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were very quiet and we slept great. Great location too, plenty of nice restaurants nearby as well as tge metro station. It was nice to get an early check in and find the ait conditioning already running for us. Nicely renovated room with a large modern bathroom. We stayed on the 6th floor and it was very quiet. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Great location and helpful staff! »

    I was stranded alone in Paris without a passport over a long weekend. My room was comfortable and I was eventually moved into a slightly larger room with a view. The staff was non-obtrusive but very accomodating, helping me with a variety of needs over my stay. One staff member sent me to her hairdresser around the corner. This experience went a long way towards making me feel welcome in a city I had only been to once before as an adult. Other staff were also helpful with travel details, restaurant suggestions and other details. Downsides were the carpets in the rooms were so worn as to appear dirty. Also, not all rooms had the same amenities which seemed odd. Breakfast choices were okay, though the basement room it was located in felt uncomfortably small. All in all a good stay.

    « Murphy »

    A very central location with 2 Metro stations nearby.Also just a quick walk to the hop on hop off bus stop at Opera House. Delightful staff Valerie and Frederick made the stay fantastic. They ere happy to help with tips on restaurants, how to get around, recon firming ongoing reservations and the like, all with a happy disposition. We had to leave early for tours on two occasions and even with this being prior to the scheduled breakfast time, Frederick opened up early and made coffee and had the pastries and breakfast buffet ready. He said he would do it again,,,, so ask him.. Great stay

    « Good option in rue Lafayette »

    Good place with an excellent AC in one of the hottest weeks of the year. The room was very well and the AC was running before my arrival. The staff is quite correct and polite. A hotel with a good money for value relation for a business trip or for a weekend in Paris.

    « Good Location »

    Just a couple of blocks from a metro stop with lots of restaurants nearby. The room was very clean and quiet. I could mirror every word that Elaine M has stated. The metro in Paris was so very easy to use so we were near major attractions very quickly. I might add that we just returned a couple of weeks ago and felt safe all over Paris. Lots of police presence but did not feel threatened by them, felt good to know that the authorities are really on top of the violence as well as any location could be.

    « Comfortable & convenient to metro »

    This is a small hotel that has some of the typical features of European hotels - small rooms, small elevators, but with updated bathrooms and good amenities (in-room safe, fridge and hot water pot, hair dryer, good shower & updated bathroom). The hotel is on a small side street, so it's pretty quiet at night. Comfortable bed. Reception staff were pleasant and helpful in giving directions. Breakfast was a nice European style buffet - yogurts, croissants, breads, cheese, cold cuts, fruit, etc. The location is convenient to a couple of metro stations, about 10-15 minute walk to Opera Garnier and a couple of major department stores. However, it's not near major tourist attractions. Neighborhood was attractive and felt safe to walk around in. Several small (and good) restaurants nearby, plus convenience stores/markets, ATMs, drugstores. I was on a group tour so can't speak to room prices for other travelers.

    « Good bang for the buck ... »

    We seem to chose a different hotel every time that we go to Paris. The circumstances are always different. This time our guests wanted a "triple" room and not all hotels have them. BW Anjou has a pleasant staff and is a great value for the money. Comfortable, modern and clean rooms. Decent wifi for free. Normal European breakfast. Umbrella use, which we appreciated because it rained on us for 2 days. About 200 meters from the Cadet Metro station on line 7. Overall, a very pleasant experience. Parking is nearby at 35 euro for 24 hours.

    « Functional and clean »

    I did not have any great expectations about the hotel before I arrived. I just needed a place to stay for a couple of nights while I participated in conference calls. The room was small as expected, but clean, comfortable and functional. The breakfast buffet was sparse but ok for a quick bite.

    « Best Hotel »

    Great Hotel with even better greater staff. It's very clean and very safe. The concierge is very friendly, helpful , and has a lot of information about great places to go. It's near metro Cadet just 2 or 3 streets away. They also serve a good breakfast and have a great car service to and from the hotel. The only comment I can make is that the Internet is sometimes slow. However it works well and smoothly the rest of the time You are also surrounded by supermarkets, a Starbucks, a McDonald's, and a lot of other restaurants You don't really have to take the bus the metro will take you anywhere with just one or 2 changes in the line maximum So all in all I was very pleased and satisfied with my stay and will definitely recommend it for my friends and family

    « Great 3 star »

    I stayed at the Anjou Lafayette in March and loved it. The location was perfect, I loved the authentic decoration in my room and the person at the desk was really lovely and recommended some good restaurants. I will come back for sure.

    « Nice stay & some tips »

    My husband and I stayed here for a night. It is about a block away from the Cadet metro station. The morning we arrive we walked from the Opera station after the Roissybus drop us off. We arrived way too early for check in but they offered to store our bags. The hotel is clean and neat. Very cozy, although it is on the smaller side, they offer good amenities. They have a hot water kettle for instant coffee and tea. In the bathroom they offer cotton swabs and shower caps in addition to shower gels. The location of the hotel is a block away from McDonald's, and a few nice restaurants near by. There is also a supermarket called G20 that offers fresh baguette through out the day and cheap crime de foie. It is also a good location to pick up some water. Overall I think the hotel is super affordable and the quality is good.

    « Good welcome »

    I stay in this holiday every 6 months for business - good value and well located for Gare Nord, restaurants, metro and shops - same reception team for several years who are very friendly and helpful - hotel currently being upgraded and I hope the prices which are fairly high are not increased. Overall a very good hotel.

    « cozy comfort »

    I have stayed here twice, it offers a relatively inexpensive option to stay in the city. A quiet hotel not far from two Metro stations in the Opera district. The rooms are typical for Europe, a bit on the smaller side. Clean. Most of the front desk staff speak decent English. They were extra helpful in allowing me to charge my iPhone at the desk since I did not have the proper converter. I would stay here again.

    « Well located with plenty of asian food around »

    Definitely a place to stay in Paris. The reception spoke English and introduced us to the various type of breakfast they served. We are also very happy with the room and its cleanliness. The decor is chic and modern with comfy beds. Location wise, it is close by the metro, supermarket and if you craze for Chinese food, there are a few options near by. Quiet and safe too.

    « Home away from home »

    This was my first visit to Paris and I was nervous about staying alone in such a huge city. It was close to so many attractions and near the Metro ( where isn't) and also only a short walk to The Gard Nord. Restaurants close by as well as cheap and cheerful cafes. The room was clean and warm with a nice view of the street from my window. The staff were polite and helpful. I would certainly stay here again if ever I return to Paris.

    « Decent stay, close to metro »

    This hotel was the perfect place for us as it was close to metro stns, Saravana Bhavan (South Indian Vegetarian Restaurant) and most attractions were within 5 mins ride on metro. In Paris, that is pretty awesome for our budget. Metro Line 7 took us directly to Pyramides (which is one of the pick up points for the Big Bus Tours). The locality seemed safe too, we were out around midnight and didn't see any shady characters around. We reached the hotel late morning hoping to find a place to keep our luggage, but the staff in-charge was kind enough to actually let us check-in into one of our rooms (we had booked 2 rooms). The rooms were decent sized, but we got twin beds in our room and the gap between the beds was considerable; the worst part was that the beds kept sliding, increasing the gap. The air-conditioning worked perfectly though and the bathroom was quite OK. The breakfast is not included in the room cost and since we paid extra for it, I expected it to be better, it was quite mediocre, canned fruits really annoy me. But I would still recommend this place due to its other advantages and it's Paris - your money only goes this far!

    « Good cozy hotel, nice location »

    I stayed in this hotel during my recent Paris visit for 3 nights. Comfortable stay, rooms are quite even though it's close to Main Street. Clean and good house keeping. Informative and helpful front desk. Good housekeeping. I did not have any breakfast in the hotel,therefore, can not comment about food taste and quality. Will stay again.

    « Lovely rooms, great location »

    The rooms are cozy witha touch of design, small size but expected given the price and location and decent wifi. Staff are very pleasant, no room service available, but its not much of a problem cuz the hotel quite central. Perfectly acceptable for spending the night while exploring paris all day.

    « Very nice hotel »

    When we arrived at the hotel, we were earlier than the check-in time and so had to wait for just over an hour in the hotel reception (with no real apology...) for our room to be ready. Other than that, the staff were helpful and accommodating, allowing us to leave our bags at the hotel after we had checked out whilst we explored Paris until our train ride home. The reception and lobby areas are really nice - very clean and well presented. We booked a superior double room, which was a good size. I wouldn't have wanted a smaller room. The bathroom was much more spacious than anticipated too. We didn't have breakfast as we thought it was very expensive (12 euros) for what it was (continental breakfast), so I cannot comment upon the food. Overall, we were pleased with our choice - a really good 3* hotel.

    « Great location, decent hotel »

    Stayed here for three nights while traveling solo. The hotel is in a great area. It provides a haven from the touristy parts of the city I frequented during my short trip in Paris. Within walking distance, you'll find a great variety of restaurants and convenience stores, as well as a small park and playground if you happen to be traveling with children. A little further is the famous Galeries de Lafayette. Also nearby are two subway stations which will connect you to any part of the city - often without changing trains. At worst, you may need to transfer once to get to places like the Eiffel Tower. The room itself was a good size, comfortable bed, and big bathroom. My room also had a desk, and window which fully opened. The room had free wifi, which worked well by hotel room standards. My two complaints also have to do with the room. The air conditioning in my room was poor. Thankfully I could open a window, but it still made sleeping uncomfortable. My second issue was with the room safe which simply did not work. At the right price, this is a safe choice.

    « Not bad »

    Typical hotel, small, ugly, old. It is very close to Gare du Nord, close to restaurants. The room was very small, from the window you could see a horrible courtyard. Value for money very low. I will not return to this hotel.

    « Warm Hospitality »

    A very nice hotel and very helpful and friendly staff..not-so-spacious room for me but i like it so much..the basic facilities are complete and very near to Metro Station so that easy for me to travel.. The hotel location is strategic as well and pleasant for shoppers to go to Gallery Lafayette by walking or using Metro. It so close...

    « nice hotel, large room, reasonable price »

    downtown near Lafayette. Nice room and toiletries were so impressive. The staff was friendly, eager to help travelers with good recommendations. The hotel looks small outside but the room is quite large and I got a window with a nice town view too.

    « Good location and value »

    The hotel is very well located - easy to get to Gare du Nord and Gare du Est, with transit connections down by the Siene for the tourist attractions. The rooms are small (but that is expected in Paris), the staff is very helpful and knowledgeable about the city to help tourists get around.

    « Best Western Anjou Lafayette Opera, Paris, France »

    I would highly recommend the stay at this chic little hotel in Paris. Very comfortable, room décor very fashionable and quaint. I traveled solo on this trip so I didn't need a large room or many amenities as I spent most of my time outside.

    « Great Stay for Weekend Trip »

    I would highly recommend this hotel. I read other reviews and was concerned about safety and cleanliness. This hotel I felt completely safe and walked around the nearby area even late at night. When I arrived I was hungry and there was a McD's right down the street. For first timers that only speaks English, I would recommend a shuttle or taxi from the airport to get you there as it would be difficult to find if you took the train or a bus and then had to walk. This hotel is tucked on a side street by a busy road, therefore it was very quiet. I had no troubles sleeping. The room was small but able to store bags and organize and was just fine. The bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean, internet worked great, and the hotel staff was helpful and friendly. They stored my bags for me as well in a locked location. The subway stop - Cadet - is a short 5 minute walk. The 7 line to the Opera stop was a great way to get to all the attractions. I bought a two day unlmited pass on the train for 20 Euro and was perfect for me. I took the train everywhere. I would definitly stay at this hotel again.

    « Little Gem in Paris »

    We haven't stayed in other Paris hotels, but this hotel seems like a little gem with a great location on a tiny street. We liked the easy metro access and enjoyed the restaurant across the street along with others within easy walking distance. The room was smaller than most we have stayed in, but we understand that is typical of European hotels (and to be fair, hotels in downtown Manhattan, NYC). There was room for three of us and our fairly large luggage without feeling unduly cramped. We had a top floor room with a full (maybe queen) and a twin bed. The use of a twin bed was perfect for the room size and for our party. All in all, a very nice place to come back to after a day of activities and sightseeing, knowing that we could spend a quiet evening and get a good dinner without another metro trip. USA travelers, heads up - the bathroom electrical outlet is for electric shavers only; other appliances will not work, something we also encountered in Spain. Hair dryers are provided. Also, staff will arrange shuttle service to airport.
