All the desk staff speak English which helps because although I speak French well my travelling companion didn't. The room was small but comfortable with air conditioning we were very glad to have. There was some fault on the lighting and the door lock took quite a few attempts before it worked but the plumbing was to a high standard and the place was certainly clean. Very friendly desk staff especially Nadia who felt like an old friend. The restaurant Nadia recommended was excellent we went there every night. Breakfast was great - as much as you want from a buffet with cereal, juice, eggs, sausages, ham, cheese, bread, french pastries, butter and a selection of jams/honey, yoghurts, coffee, tea, pleasant and unobtrusive breakfast room staff. The breakfast was served from 7:30 (I think) till 10 am - I'm not an early riser and with France being an hour ahead of here the breakfast was effectively served till 11 am which suited me greatly. The room was serviced every day and the shower gels/soaps were put in daily also clean towels every day. There was a mini bar in the room with water, soft drinks and some sort of beer but we didn't use it, no tea/coffee making facilities in the room though which would have been nice although there was a vending machine on the ground floor which sold bottled drinks. Free wifi via a code you get at the front desk plus free use of a net pc in the foyer with a printer to use free of charge. Lots of free newspapers and magazines in the foyer and several copies, all new ones, I asked if I could take one away and the desk chap said yes. The airport shuttle was perfect we had no problems at all with it and the driver was very nice, he pulled over at one point because a girl behind us was too hot and none of us could manage to open the windows, the driver stopped, got out and opened them for us. The Opera district is a very safe and clean area, there's nothing rough or sleazy there at all it's lovely. We paid 115 euros a night for a twin bedded room plus 15 euros each for breakfast. Considering where we were this was an amazing price and surely worth the money. I would only rate a hotel as 5 if there was nothing which was under standard, in this case I dropped a point because of the faulty light which we did report but wasn't fixed. I'm sure they're kept very busy and it wasn't a major issue because I cobbled it up by shoving a sachet of shower gel in the lamp mounting - and to be honest it gave us some laughs because if we put something on the desk the lamp went out and we had to wiggle the shower gel sachet - very comical!
