The Holiday Inn Paris Opera Grands Boulevards is a top-notch place to stay in Paris. It's centrally-located, right on top of the Grands Boulevards metro, with an entrance immediately outside Sortie
1. Access doesn't get easier than that.
We stayed on the hottest day of the year, and the lobby had cold water and cold lemon water available - both of which were very welcome. Our room was built, maintained, and cleaned to a very high standard. The room had A/C, a rare luxury in Europe. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet. We slept very well. The bathroom was spacious and clean.
For all that, the staff is the best part of this hotel. We got stuck in Paris one additional night due to Eurostar difficulties. We went back to this hotel, which was full for the night. However, the front desk staff was exceptionally kind and helpful, and called around the area to find us a hotel that did have a room available. We were in a difficult position, and they really helped us out a lot.
I'd give this hotel more than 5 stars if I could! [Less]
