Mercure Paris Opera Garnier
- What's Included
my husband and i booked our paris trip through a package with gate1 travel and upgraded our hotel to the mercure paris opera garnier. the experience was wonderful.i've been to paris the previous year and stayed near the tuileries at the westin vendome. it was a lovely experience, being not only in a beautiful hotel with views of historic paris, but it's also tourist central and the closest metros are a 15 minute walk in either direction. i had remembered liking the opera neighborhood during my last visit, which is why we chose the hotel mercure garnier. in terms of convenience and location, it couldn't have been better! we were a 2-3 minute walk from two major metro stops (havre-caumartin and saint-lazare) which literally connect to any other metro line in the city. that, and we also felt immersed in the city, amongst the locals in this area. loved that aspect. we had read the hotel was going through some renovations at the time, and witnessed that a bit, but it wasn't intrusive at all. the staff was wonderful - friendly and patient. they truly went out of their way to make our stay comfortable as possible. two examples: the morning we checked in they apologized profusely for the renovations, which as i mentioned were hardly noticeable, and gave us a free bottle of champagne that evening for any inconvenience. also, the morning we left, we had a super early start and got downstairs for 6am (when we thought breakfast started, to get a quick bite before our car came to pick us up for the airport). we were sad to learn breakfast didn't begin until 6:30. the front desk staff and the cafe staff worked quickly to get everything set up so we were able to eat breakfast early, around ten after 6. we couldn't thank them enough! in terms of the hotel itself, the renovated areas are beautiful and modern (and the non-renovated sections of the hotel are lovely, too). with the package deal through gate1, we were given vouchers for free breakfast every morning. (not sure if all guests get this convenience, but even if you have to pay, i would say it's worth it.) the spread was huge - fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, every bread you can imagine, croissants, pain au chocolat, eggs, bacon and sausage - and fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee, and tea. definitely worth the stay at the hotel in and of itself because we didn't have to eat out every morning! really the only downside to our stay (if you could call it that) was that our room was #624, but was really on the 5th floor, down a hallway and up a short stairwell. it was just a little inconvenient with our luggage going up and down the steps, but the front desk staff put us in a newly remodeled room, which we appreciated so we couldn't really complain.all in all, a wonderful stay. we would (and may!) definitely return! :)
Very nice boutique hotel. Perfect location. Staff was nice and helpful. Breakfast was not included in the room but with reasonable price, for a quick, continental breakfast. I enjoyed my stay and will come back.
The hotel is located in a back ally. My taxi driver had so much trouble finding it that he gave me a rebate on the taxi fare. However, the location is a short walk to several stations and a good shopping district and there are plenty of good restaurants nearby.My room was cramped and very dingy, the lighting is completely insufficient and I resorted to hanging my clothes on the door hinge as there was so little room anywhere else. The bathroom is so tiny that there isn't even room to put down a wash bag, although the bathroom did look as if it had seen some modernisation. My room was more like an oversized cupboard. I had to keep stepping over my suitcase since there was no room to get in or out once it was open. The decoration is all in a rather dated dirty pink colour with burgundy striped curtains. The slightest noise in the hallway can be heard in the rooms and the staff seem to be permanently hoovering for some reason.The hotel itself is dilapidated and in dire need of refurbishment which it seems to be getting so expect builders and a certain amount of mess. The lift seems to take 10 minutes to arrive every time (the one that's working) so I resorted to the emergency stairs which are even more grungy than the rest of the hotel. The staff always look slightly surprised to see you when you emerge from the stairwell. The restaurant is accessed through a tent which leaks in the rain making access a tricky maneuver around the puddles. The food was average at best, rubbery mushrooms, greasy bacon so I'd suggest trying your luck at the cafes across the road.Overall there are far better places to stay at the price and I won't be rushing back.
Came to Paris for a long weekend with my mum for my 30th. Perfect for a weekend break. Rooms aren't massive but perfect for what we wanted. So close to everything that we wanted to see. Staff were very helpful. Best thing was that we hadn't included breakfast when we booked but we did one two occasions try the express breakfast for 8 euros which was perfect and a really good cheap option rather than paying out for a big and expensive breakfast. All round a great hotel at the usual Mercure standard and would definitely go back if went back to Paris again.
The hotel is well situated in the fashion center near Boulevard Haussmann and near to Printemps and Lafayette shopping centers. Typical Paris hotel room with small room, but just redecorated with new bathroom. So just what you need. Good connections from Gare Du Nord and to La Defense. In the neighborhood a wide variety of restaurants from Japanese, Lebanese and of course French Brasserie. Hotel has a bar and free WiFi [which should be normal these days...] and very friendly personnel.
