Stayed for three nights at this hotel with my girlfriend, upon arriving we were a little dismayed at the size of the room we had, although we had booked only a standard room dont be fooled by the website as the pictures on there must be for the superior rooms. The standard rooms are about 8ft/10ft and a small bathroom which can only accomadate one person at a time.

Our first night was a sleepless one as the airconditioning failed in our room, the mini bar did not work (it did not cool) nor did the hotel have any ice with which to cool our drinks. I asked if we could be moved to another room at 6am while the air con was fixed, this did not happen, the air conditioning was eventually fixed at 11am by which time we were very tired and hot (34 degrees while we were there).
The mini bar was not fixed at all despite reporting the problem, we had no choice but to go down to the bar for ice ( if they had any) anytime we wanted a cold drink in our room.

Breakfast in bed is 30 euros, be sure to finish it quickly or the maid will hassle you for the tray back.

The gym/spa was not in use the whole time we were there...

We were not overly impressed with the hotel and would not stay again. 3 star max.

This hotel is advertised as a 4 star hotel but it really deserves a 2 or 3 star. We ate breakfast there the first morning and I was sick for the rest of the day. The rooms were extremely small and cramped. Only one person could be in the bathroom at a time. The gym had only one treadmill and no other equipment. Worst of all, I had four pieces of valuable jewellery stolen from my room even though we were provided a safe. Two had enormous monetary and sentimental value and can never be replaced. When the staff were informed, they seemed unconcerned. Never again at this hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Golden Tulip Opera De Noailles Hotel

Good location

from Dublinadvisor
The hotel is in an ideal location and the Roissy Bus from Charles de Gualle stops a five minute walk away making commuting from the airport relatively hassle free. The hotel was very clean and quiet altough I found the bedroom and the adjoining bathroom to be very small and I am a small person!!
Our breakfast was included in the rate so I can't comment on value for money but it was well stocked each morning and everything was very tasty.
As I said above, its a great location and 5-10 minutes walk will have you in the Lourve. Lots of restuarants within walking distance and its quite close to Gallerie La Fayette if shopping is on your agenda.
A little on the expensive side for what it was but then again this is Paris, so you come to expect that.

s Day in Paris

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I enjoyed our stay. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. As advertised, this hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Paris. Although our room was small, we found it and the hotel to be extremely neat and clean. We would stay here again.

Nice but expensive

from goldbloro
It is very nice but is too much expensive for the service that they give. Qaulity of service is good but it isn't at same level like others hotel.

t live up to expectations..............

from Jonnyl_7
I used Trip Advisor to book a hotel in Paris for our Honeymoon. Having read the good reviews here I went ahead and booked.
Unfortunately, it did not live up to expectations, although, that is more to do with the staff than the hotel itself.
I emailed the hotel a week before our trip to explain that we would be on our honeymoon, and to request a room with a bath specifically.
On arrival we were handed the key without any conversation. The room we were given had twin beds and no bath! To add insult to injury, it was the only room on the floor without a bath.
I returned to reception to ask if there was an alternative, and after some blank looks was told there was one other room we could look at. It had a very small bath and the room itself was smaller too.

That said, the hotel is nicely decorated, convenient for the Metro at Opera and serves a decent breakfast until a reasonable time.
A word of warning - if you intend to book this hotel ask for a room that does not end with the No. 5 - they are the small ones without baths!!

Highly Recommended

from A TripAdvisor Member
Excellent location for the bus to the airport, 2 metro stations, great restaurants and to walk to see the sights of Paris. Breakfast buffet is well-stocked and good value for Paris. Staff is incredibly efficient, friendly and helpful. Comfortable Bed. Clean and quiet room overlooking courtyard. Nice bathroom. We would definitely stay here again.

Arrive as a client, leave as a friend

from A TripAdvisor Member
I use Trip Advisor regularly and have found the reviews to be unfailingly helpful, although I have never been tempted to write one before. As it happens I have never used Trip Advisor for Paris as I always stay at the Noailles, 4/6 times a year normally, both business and pleasure. Anyway I was idly surfing the reviews and came across my favourite hotel and thought I might add a few comments from a business traveller perspective.

Firstly the reviews that I have read on the Noailles seen to be pretty close to the mark. Yes the rooms are not overly large (some are smaller than others) and yes there are some design quirks (this is Paris you know) and no I am not going to tell you my favourite room, its difficult enough to get it already!
I believe there are three reasons to stay at the Noailles.
First, the location.
Second, the constant attention to detail and almost continual upgrading and improvement to the rooms and reception areas.
Third and the most important (which has been mentioned by others) is the efficiency and genuine desire of the owners and their staff to please. This is not an impersonal hotel!

Over the years I have been staying here I have been helped on many occasions, ranging from Florence going out to find me a pair of cufflinks when I had forgotten mine and was already late for a meeting to the time when after walking past a construction site I received a small sliver of metal in the eye and Martine got me to an ophtalmologist within fifteen minutes in order to get it removed.

That kind of attention is simply without price and is the reason I would never willingly stay anywhere else when I am in Paris.

I read an advertisement for a B&B recently, it said "arrive as a client, leave as a friend" I could not think of a better description for the Noailles.

Charming Hotel - Great Location

from ironmike110
The Hotel was a little gem. All the staff were extremely helpful and polite. The room was more than adequate with an extremely comfortable bed and lovely bathroom. Breakfast was nice also.
An added bonus was the location - we got the Roissy bus to the opera and walked the 300m to the hotel. From the hotel we walked to Louve, down the Seine to the musée d'orsay and onwards to the Eiffel Tower and up the champs elysees. It very close to the Opera underground also.
This Hotel really is the perfect base for a weekend in Paris!

est manifique!

from A TripAdvisor Member
A wonderful hotel! Clean, well appointed beautiful rooms, wonderful breakfast available. Lovely staff. very helpful and welcoming. Location is incredible = within walking distance of almost everything! Metro stops close by - couldn't be better!

We were able to walk to museums, the opera house, restaurants of every type and price range, theater, etc. The Roissey bus from the airport dropped us just steps away from the hotel. The combination of convenience, location and quality made for a very wonderful experience.

Everyone we encountered in the hotel was helpful and warm.

Recommend it wholeheartedly!

Fantastic little gem in the middle of Paris - Stayed for our honeymoon:)

from kicia_pookie
We visited this hotel during our honeymoon (we stayed there from June 22 - June 28 - it was quiet and we left just in time as large groups of tourists started to arrive - would not recommend staying in Paris in July or August anyways as it becomes very crowded and crime rates are significantly higher during those times) and found it to be nice, quiet, with continental breakfast included (which was enough because you'd want to eat out in Paris:) The staff was great, the room was small but quiet and clean and we only slept there anyways so that did not matter... we were treated very well as they knew we were on our honeymoon so we had wine and cheese and grapes daily sent to our room... overall fabulous hotel and central location (close to everything) - would highly recommend:)

Small room

from evertoncity
We have just returned from a three day stay at Hotel Noailles and as far as the bedrooms are concerned, can only comment on room 504. All the communal areas were very good, buffet breakfast excellent, staff most helpful and pleasant and everywhere spotlessly clean. The hotel is in a good position for all transport, and the street was quiet. Room 504 was quite small, twin beds,only one small upright chair at the desk/dressing table with no mirror over. The very small bathroom was badly designed, toilet almost against the wall & immediately behind the door, difficulty in using the hairdrier near to a mirror,poor ventilation. steamed up easily. But all very clean. Maybe designers should use the rooms? We would visit again, but would try to obtain a larger room etc. Room 504 was listed as costing 290 euros per night. These are just little "niggles" and did not spoil our visit. We did make these comments to the hotel.

Top Local Tips for Paris

great place to shop Paris is expensive considering dollar/Euro situation. I found this shop 5 minutes from thsi hotel on opera ave which is great. It is called Camaieu. Good quality, affordable. Great for Jewelry shopping! :) Spent two hours and 500 bucks in there! Have fun!

Eat Early and save at the best restaurants in town Many parisians tend to eat late, so many of the restaurants in Paris have reduced prix 3 or prix 5 menus that offer the same meals for maybe a 1/3 of the price. We ate at a few top restaurants for practically nothing, such as Le Grand Cafe.

Metro Do'nt be fooled into buying an orange metro ticket (as firstly it won't get you to EuroDisney) but secondly, never mind what the person selling you says, its a ticket for French people and needs to have a photo attached and all the details filled in. If you get caught you'll be lumbered with a 25 euro fine from a really rude and intimidating employee of the French rail company - we didn't know this and ended up paying 25euros each, we spoke to the tourist office and he said this happens a lot and that there are special Paris metro tickets for tourists, so be very careful what ticket you buy.
