From the black-and-white flooring to the gilded elevator, Millennium Hotel Opera recalls Paris’ Jazz Age; the lobby bar, Le Douze, even has a ceiling dome designed by Eiffel himself. Decadent flourishes are paired with comfy guestrooms and homey lounges stuffed with fireplaces, bookshelves and sturdy brown furniture, and there’s a café-style eatery on-site. The location puts you a pirouette away from the historic Paris Opera, the Louvre and Galaries Lafayette.
Bed and Bath
The rooms are classic but not ornate. Impressionist paintings and architectural sketches dot the walls, and tall French windows overlook a quiet courtyard or the tree-lined Boulevard Haussmann. Bedding and curtains stick to light floral patterns. Amenities include a TV, minibar and safe. The bathroom’s black-and-white tiling, marble tabletops and chrome accents recall the lobby’s design, and bathroom soaps and sundries carry the hotel’s own branding.
The laid-back Brasserie Haussmann is a traditional brasserie with dark wooden tables, brass lamps, red velvet booths, green leather chairs and satirical sketches on the wall. French staples, from onion soup to croque monsieur, are served inside or streetside for more of a café-style dining experience. After dinner grab a book from the hotel’s library and curl up next to the cozy fireplace or sip a digestif at Bar La Bibliotheque.
In the Area
The hotel is close to the historic Paris Opera, which offers ballets, operas and other performances, and a short walk from the iconic department store Galeries Lafayette. The Louvre and its innumerable famous objets — the Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, etc. — is a few stops south on the metro; ride it a little longer to hit the bustling Latin Quarter, Ernest Hemingway’s old haunt, now home to an energetic café and bar scene.
How to Get There
My sisters and I stayed here for 2 nights on a layover in Paris. This hotel still has the charm of the 1920s throughout. The rooms are updated with wifi as well. The staff was very accommodating. When we were there, the dining room was being remodeled and they had a limited menu. Not to worry - plenty of excellent restaurants & cafes and shopping in short walking distance. Highly recommend.
I was there with my family for 3 nights. Let me write my opinion about this hotel: Service and People there are excellent and location is excellent. Except from this, we were dissapointed. There was no where written they had exterior renovation and we could not open window, terrible smell and people going there, also rooms for 350EURO per night was very old - it should have been luxury accomodation around 20 years ago, but now it is not, although clean, but telephone in the WC was terrible dirty inside. Bed comfortable and large, no issues, TV was places in a wierd location could not watch at night, We were dissapointed with breakfast, no choices, no variations, weak so much. Would I go back? Unless they renovate totally, I think - not. We were in different hotel for 130EURO close to Disney Land, will not name the chain, but for 130EURO room was twice as large, new, much better, huge breakfast assortment and excellent service. Newly redesigned hotel. So... we have mixed fellings.
I've chosen to stay at this hotel with my family. Location is very nice, but I think one of the best there is - staff. Totally brilliant, helpful, friendly and well trained. Only beacause of it I put 5 stars and not 3.
On other hand, hotel's exterior is all wrapped with costruction cutrain, seems they provide renovation. You can't open the window, all dust. Rooms are very old, and old fashioned. Breakfast was quite weak, we all expected more.
I hope after renovation this hotel will turn into wonderful visitcard hotel of Paris.
