A cheap hotel near the Opéra: visit Paris’ liveliest quarter

Haussmannian apartments
Stay in the busy heart of Paris in one of the ibis hotels in the Opéra district. From there, you’ll be about a 10 minutes’ walk from the Grands Boulevards and major stores, but you’ll still get to see Paris’ artistic side and its many locations for excursions.
The theatre and cinema district
Your cheap hotel near the Opéra is no distance from this luxurious building, which was built in the 19th century by Charles Garnier. Its façade decorated with marble, gold and superb sculptures is certainly eye-catching. Its interior is just as ornate and very much worth the visit. In the surrounding avenues and Grands Boulevards, you’re in the heart of Haussmann’s Paris. Its wide roads and buildings in specially finished stone are typical of this Napoleonic architectural style. On Boulevard Montmartre, a whole series of covered arcades (such as the Passage des Panoramas, the Galerie Feydeau and Passage Jouffroy) are full of boutiques and little restaurants and have a very 19th-century ambiance. At the other end of Boulevard des Capucines, La Madeleine church built by Louis XV is still one of Paris’ most important centres for sacred music thanks to its grand organ.
Behind the Opéra on Boulevard Haussmann, you’ll reach Paris’ shopping paradise with its many major stores. In their gorgeous buildings topped with Art Deco and Belle Epoque domes, Le Printemps and Les Galeries Lafayette are a showcase for Parisian chic with their selections of fashion, home décor and food products. While you’re staying in the Opéra district, make sure you take advantage of the many locations for lively nights out, including the Edouard VII, Variétés, Mogador and Palace theatres. But don’t miss other iconic locations in Paris’ night-life like the Folies Bergère, Grand Rex or Olympia, a legendary concert hall which has been welcoming the biggest names in music since 1893.
