Best Western Hotel Ronceray Opera
- What's Included
Came to Paris on a Eurostar included short break (4 nights) with my elderly mum. Taxi from gare du nord to hotel which even the taxi driver couldn't find .... the entrance is down an alley which later is found to be very quaint. We checked in and were given a fourth floor room with a bath .... ok for me but not for mother and when we spoke to reception/concierge they quickly and efficiently moved us into another twin room with a walk in shower. The boulevard de Montmartre is very busy and noisy if you have a front facing room. The noise did not stop all night so thankfully the air con in the room worked and we shut the windows. The rooms we had were small but efficient. The maid came in daily and we had fresh towels and bedding every day. Everywhere very clean. Beware smelly fridges ..... Breakfast pretty good with wide selection of both hot and cold selection. Both continental and English choices. Only a couple of negatives about our trip - firstly the people. Apart from 2/3 very pleasant and friendly concierge staff at the hotel the rest are seriously rude. No customer service skills. Miserable. Obviously have issues with British and anyone visiting this beautiful city. We found it all very expensive both to sight see and to eat. The Roncerey Opera has a small bar which is only open Monday to Friday and the bar man needs lessons in customer service. It does not open Saturday or Sunday. The only food is breakfast. They do not serve anything else at all. All in all an ok stay. It was NOT a cheap short stay break which is a shame.
I stayed in this hotel in July 2017 for a business trip. It was so awful that I changed my plans to leave early. First, the good, what there was of it...The hotel is an unbeatable location and was very convenient to everything I needed to do. Some of the staff were very nice.Now, for the bad. Oh boy, where to begin with the comedy of errors in this hotel. Maybe I'll just list it:- The hotel itself is very shabby, and the rooms are dated looking (though the bathrooms aren't bad).- I was moved after my first night because I wasn't assigned the type of room I reserved. My new room had a broken air conditioner and some of the staff seemed put out that I wanted a room with functional air conditioning in July.- I put my Do Not Disturb sign out, and the cleaning staff repeatedly ignored it and cleaned the room anyway. When I complained, the staff acted like it was somehow my fault for not also telling the front desk that I didn't want my room cleaned. That's what the sign is for! That's Hotels 101! - The "free wifi" didn't work in my room. I was so fed up with complaining to the desk that I didn't even bother to bring this one up.- The beds are beyond tiny and uncomfortable.- There's no space in the room. I felt claustrophobic constantly.I guess this hotel might fit a need for some people who are price-conscious and don't care about things like terrible service and privacy violations, but it wasn't a good experience for me at all.
I stayed at the Best Western Hotel Ronceray Opera for four nights from June 23, 2017 to June 27, 2017. Positive aspects of the hotel are as follows: air conditioning works well; low price relative to other hotels; convenient to Metro; cleanliness of room; convenient to supermarket (M&S) which is 30 feet away; convenient location; WiFi worked great; and great view of the SacrÃ©-CÅ“ur.My room was very small, but likely I got what I paid for ($149 euro per night which included VAT).Negative aspects were: if you have status at Best Western (I'm the highest level), it doesn't mean anything and doesn't get you anything; the was a 2-3 inch gap where the shower door opens and the shower door leans in about 6-8 inches so water flies out of the shower; and on Saturday night a nearby extremely loud "popup" disco until 5AM the next morning (the desk guy told me the next morning sometimes a nearby hall has these events so according to him it isn't every Saturday night); and there isn't any amenities in the hotel aside from a free newspaper and tea/coffee in the room.In giving it a rating of 3, I have considered the price I paid and the category hotel it is. In sum, if all you need is a clean room in a convenient location and don't want to pay that much, this is your hotel.
This hotel is very conveniently located right on the Big Bus blue route. Easy to start your day exploring Paris with Big Bus hop on- hop off service. The hotel manager has been extremely helpful with directions and also excellent recommendations for dining.
Had all of the basics down pat at a great price. Clean, very well-located, friendly and helpful staff, free and reliable wi-fi, comfy beds, black-out curtains, spacious bathroom and newly renovated, all located above one of the most charming covered passages in Paris and a lively (but not too lively) strip of Parisian nightlife. We were very happy with our stay here and would stay again.
