Located two minutes from the Palais Royal (and another few minutes to the Louvre), the three-star Ascot Opera is transforming into a boutique hotel with somewhat affordable rates.
Pros: Convenient location between the Opera and Louvre. Well-equipped rooms with style.
Cons: Rates are now quite expensive.
The Ascot Opera, a three-star pick for years, recently underwent a boutique upgrade, with renovations that brought in artsy murals of Paris’ landmarks into many guest rooms (sleep under the Louvre’s pyramid, Eiffel Tower, banks of the Seine, etc.), modern bathroom fixtures and art in the breakfast room.
It also hiked up the room rates, as is often the case. While rates change daily, we’ve found doubles hanging around the €155-180 range, which is hardly “Cheapo” at all. Still, we’ll list it as an option that might work for your budget.
Many of the 36 rooms are pretty tight, but they’re all equipped with air-conditioning, a flat-screen TV, telephone and minibar. Rooms without murals have a pleasing and modern color scheme, while others are done up in reds. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel.
Some bathrooms are rather small, so you might want to request a large bathroom when reserving if this is a concern.
The lobby is both comfortable and busy, with soft lighting, a winding wooden staircase, plenty of mirrors and a large lounge that doubles as a breakfast area.
A note on reserving: We’d recommend leaving a note in the comments section when reserving noting that you’d like to make sure that your room is located in the Ascot Opera and not in their adjacent hotel.
