Expert review of Golden Tulip Hôtel Washington Opéra

Sedate comfort in Madame de Pompadour's home by Palais-Royal.

Defiantly Ancien Régime. Behind its period facade, the Washington Opéra is undoubtedly rather more sedate today than when it was the townhouse of Madame de Pompadour, mistress of Louis XV. If you're after trad than trendy, this is the sort of dependable, calm place that can be a relief when travelling, although I find the four star grading rather surprising.

Location: 

On a historic street between Opéra and Palais-Royal: Musée du Louvre, the shops and gardens of Palais Royal and lots of Japanese restaurants are nearby.

Bedrooms: 

The 29 bedrooms come either in shades of blue with white woodwork or in red with dark wood; balloon back chairs, wooden bedsteads – junior suites have four posters – but the overall look could do with a little freshening up. The bathrooms are agreeably spacious marble affairs. First-floor rooms are rather low ceilinged, opt instead for the 2nd floor étage noble, or the rooftop suite which has a small roof terrace overlooking the Théâtre du Palais-Royal.

Public areas: 

The reception area has recently been redecorated and is now smart if a little chilly, but there's a pleasant sunny yellow lounge with sofas and fireplace on the other side of the entrance.

Eating and drinking: 

The breakfast room and bar are located in the half-basement.

Service: 

Service is professional if rather corporate feeling.
