Expert review of Hôtel Gramont Opéra

A stylishly renovated hotel with a nod to its operatic Parisian neighbours.

Although many Parisian hotels are happily being renovated these days, I think the Gramont has done it particularly well, upgrading this early 19th-century building from a two star to a comfortable three star in 2009 yet keeping a definitely Parisian character. The style is sleek yet comfortable with an understated musical theme in reference to the nearby Palais Garnier and Opéra Comique opéra houses, with names of composers on the cornice above reception and engravings of composers in the corridors and bedrooms.

Location: 

A sidestreet in the financial district near Opéra is perhaps not the most obvious area to stay in, yet is convenient for Palais Garnier and the Grands Magasins, and an easy walk to Palais-Royal and (node:168630]. The street itself turns into rue Ste-Anne, full of Japanese restaurants.

Bedrooms: 

The 25 rooms feature deep, comfortable new beds with plum bedheads and bed throws, and reproduction historic wallpapers ranging from florals to chinoiseries that keep up the period spirit. All the bedrooms overlook the street and are well soundproofed and air conditioned. There are four rooms that can sleep four with a double bed and a sofa bed in a separate bed area and two bathrooms, plus a duplex with a roof terrace. Singles are extremely compact but still manage to fit in a desk area.

Public areas: 

The ground-floor feels bright and clean though perhaps a little cold but the small bar is a plus, where you can perch on bar stools over a drink or in a lounge area with armchairs. Prints of composers decorate the corridors. There's also a meeting room for hire.

Eating and drinking: 

Buffet breakfast is served in a small vaulted cellar.

Service: 

Two chatty, helpful receptionists.
