Golden Tulip Hotel Washington Opera
Ranked #932 of 1,805 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed 28 January 2014

I stayed for a night in the Washington when I was in Paris on business, and was impressed. It is very conveniently located, being in the 2eme arrondissement, just around the corner from the Opera. The staff are friendly and helpful and the room was pretty and spotlessly clean. Yes, a few bits and bobs were a little frayed and threadbare, but really that just adds to the charm of the room. Interesting fact - the house used to belong to Madame de Pompadour! Despite facing onto a busy street it was not overly noisy. The continental breakfast is basic, but tasty and satisfying. Overall a great little hotel, and though pricy not outlandishly so considering the location. Recommended.

This hotel was recommended by an acquaintance who had stayed there on a previous trip. The hotel is delight to stay in - well located, beautifully appointed, clean and friendly helpful staff. We knew the breakfast was only a continental breakfast when we booked, all tastes fresh baked and is served by polite friendly staff. We have just completed an 18 day trip through Europe and 2 weeks in the UK and this hotel is one of the best and am happy to recommend.

My partner and I recently enjoyed 6 nights at The Washington Opera Hotel, in Paris. The hotel is a shining example of the perfect "boutique hotel," in a very metropolitan city. Every single staff member we encountered was kind, courteous, and helpful; really going out of their way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay.

Our room was a the perfect size for two, nicely decorated with very comfortable furnishings. All of the bath amenities were of very high quality, and were replenished as needed, or on request. A fully stocked mini bar was hidden in a cabinet next to the desk, and any items consumed were replaced the following day. Housekeeping was perfect and our room was in "like new" condition when we returned every afternoon. The public spaces of the hotel were in excellent condition, clean and very well maintained.

An ample continental breakfast is served every morning consisting of: a basket of assorted pastries & rolls, butter, a selection of jams, jelly, and honey, sliced ham, salami, and cheese, plain yoghurt, orange juice, coffee, and tea. Service was fast, efficient, and came with a smile.

The hotels location is perfect, with many tourist sites within walking distance, and others just a short cab/metro ride away. There is an abundance of restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops in the immediate vicinity with price ranges to satisfy budget travelers, and those wanting to splurge as well! Two small, but very well stocked markets are about 50 feet away which are open from early morning until about 2AM.

We absolutely loved the Washington Opera Hotel, and will wholeheartedly recommend it to any friends or family who plan on visiting Paris in the future. I'm happy to answer any questions, just click on the link below.

Room Tip: The most quiet rooms are at the rear of the hotel, where there is little street noise. Room 402 is...

This hotel is very nice located and reasonably priced for being in Paris it is 5 minutes walking to the river and 15 minutes to the Rue de Montmare which is fill with nice bistros and many pubs. The croissants and the coffee at breakfast were good everything else was an after thought.

The rooms and the bathroom are very small but the bed is comfortable.

I recently stayed at the Washington Opera Hotel in July 2013. I did not choose this hotel, but was off loaded here by chance when the hotel I booked was overbooked and placed me in this hotel by chance.
The hotel is clean and nice but only delivers a 2.5 - 3 star quality.

My daughter (12 years) and myself had spent 5 weeks travelling around Europe staying in many hotels of varying star ratings and styles, so feel well qualified to provide this information.

The hotel room is small, the decor dated and the bathrooms basic. The price was approx 210 euro per night. When I complained about the facilities provided did not match the star rating claimed, I was provided a lame excuse that this was a Boutique Hotel and this should be expected in Paris.
I advised that this was a poor excuse for failure to deliver decent accommodation appropriate with the star rating.
If you are looking for 2.5 star standard at a 4 star price, this is a great hotel. Based on my travels around Europe, the room should be charged at 120 euro per night and this would make the property a reasonable priced hotel in a good location.
I hope this blog either encourages the hotel to get real with its clients and provide genuine value for money, or save someone else the disappointment I had staying here.
