On a street that runs between the rue de Rivoli and avenue de l'Opéra, the location is excellent, whether you are here for art in [node:168630], cutting-edge fashion in rue St-Honoré or a business trip. There's a restaurant here but also plenty of places to eat nearby on place du Marché St-Honoré.
Rooms are comfortable and well soundproofed with heavy curtains, deep beds and thick bedthrows, and have nice lacquered consoles and gently nostalgic 30s-style globe lights, although I found the dominant steel grey (grey wainscotting and doors, silver bedheads) rather sobering. They range from tiny standard rooms (more suitable as singles) and Lumen business doubles with big desk area to the white attic Zen Suite with jacuzzi for two. Some rooms overlook busy rue des Pyramides, from others you can almost touch the pock-marked side of Eglise St-Roch.
There is a shiny marble reception hall, and adjoining restaurant.
Eating and drinking
Unusually for a hotel this size, it has its own café-restaurant Le Passage St-Roch, with Neo-Baroque interior and pavement tables. It's open for lunch and dinner as well as drinks, and popular with local workers for lunch.
