Classic and elegant – Hotel Plaza Opera
Located in the elegant Garnier Opera district, minutes from the major department stores of Galeries Lafayette and Printemps, the classic 3-star hotel fits well in the atmosphere of the neighborhood. If shopping is not your favorite activity – or after you’ve visited all the shops – the lively area around Moulin Rouge or artistic Montmartre are not that far either. However you spend your days in Paris, it is always nice to return to a beautiful hotel.
Hotel Plaza Opera is a homely and friendly place. From the moment you enter the hotel the love of wood becomes evident. Wood dominates in the reception area and the small lounge, but the real treat is in the rooms. Modest in design, the main feature of the light and well lit rooms is the antique furniture. They are all hand-carved pieces – the tables, the seats and drawers – but most striking is the carving at the head of the beds. Not much decoration is needed apart from them, maybe flowers or a couple small pictures here or there – the overall harmony and ambience of the rooms are perfect.
Despite the classical feeling, there is a touch of contemporary and you will find all the modern gadgets one might need on a trip: flat-screen TV with satellite channels, direct telephone, Wi-Fi and even minibar in some of the rooms. All the rooms are sound-proofed and overlook the buzzing city – some rooms even have a private balcony with a view of the Eiffel Tower over the Paris rooftops!
Hotel Plaza Opera is definitely an outstanding place – either if you are on a business trip or a shopping excursion, a vacation around Europe or a romantic Paris escapade, it is a hotel to consider. And if you want to spoil yourself even more, take advantage of the hotel’s “sweet package” – champagne, macaroons and sweets for a tasty and romantic moment.
