Edouard VII revisited

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 10, 2010

In 2007 we stayed in Suite 606. During our June 2010 visit we lodged in what had been its twin, Suite 506.

In the intervening years the hotel had been extensively remodeled. In 2007 the suite had been divided into two small rooms, bed and sitting, with a large bathroom and a separate room for the commode. In 2010 the wall between the two small rooms had been removed and the "suite" consisted of one large room (plus the bath and commode). Both suites had large, wrap-around balconies.

In 2007 the decor was understated. In 2010 it looked a bit like Hollywood's idea of a high-class brothel -- ugly red and black wallpaper.

Breakfast, at 20€ was no bargain: the buffet offered about half as many items in 2010 as it had in 2007.

Unique Quality: For all its changes, one feature has remained: the hotel staff is friendly and helpful

The hotel's location cannot be beat: it is the only hotel on Avenue de la Opéra, within easy walking distance of the Louvre and of the Opéra Garnier (now the Palais Garnier). Many and good restaurants abound in the area as does shopping (including Galeries Lafayette). The hotel's own restaurant has, however, a much scaled-back menu -- so much so that the 2009 Guide Michelin identified the hotel as "sans rest."

One surprise was the number of Asian (especially Japanese) restaurants in the area. Their number seems to have tripled or quadrupled since our 2007 visit.

Best Paris hotel I've ever stayed in

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 21, 2006

For a reason I don't understand, we were upgraded from a standard double to a suite. The rack rate for the double was €390 (about US$500) a night; that for a junior suite was €520 (US$665). We were charged only €310 ($397).

The suite (606) was luxurious: a small bedroom with TV, two tables and chairs, and minibar; a large sitting room with sofa, two easy chairs, two tables and a chair, and a chest-of-drawers; a good-sized bathroom with combined tub and shower, double wash basins, and many amenities; and a commode in a separate room (a civilized touch). In addition, five French doors opened onto a wrap-around balcony, the longer side of which offered splendid views of the Avenue de la Opéra.

The staff was friendly and helpful. And Edouard VII's location is ideal: a short walk to the Louvre, near two Metro stations (Opera and Pyramides), and close to fine restaurants and shops.

We liked Edouard VII so much that we're going back, for six nights, in June 2010. This time we've reserved a deluxe room. We'll see. . . .

Unique Quality: Newspapers (English, French, and German) are available, free, just outside the restaurant each morning.

The restaurant serves a fine, though not inexpensive, breakfast: croissants and several kinds of bread, eggs, bacon and other meats, and more.

The dinner menu is limited but the food is good -- I had lamb done to perfection -- and includes an extensive wine menu.

Directions: A short walk up the Avenue de la Opéra from the Louvre.
