    It is safe, people who would share the dorm with you would be nice. Bring your lock with you. Breakfast is a joke. The canal and the area around are nice but not so close to the centre

    Lincoln Matthew From USA On November 30, -0001

    Hotel Opera Vivaldi is a quiet, small, hard to find hotel with super small useable rooms and bathrooms. Cleanliness was immaculate. Very nice place to stay, and free internet made the price of 100 Euro/night worth the stay. The opera is literally two blocks away.

    Jan From Germany On November 30, -0001

    Ruhiger Pariser Altbau mit Charme, kurzer Fußweg zur Notre Dame und den üblichen Tourisen-Gässchen in St. Germain. Einfache Zimmer, aber sehr sauber. Einziger Kritikpunkt: Ich bekam meinen Zimmerschlüssel nach jeder Rückkehr ins Hotel ausgehändig, ohne dass mich die Rezeption nach meinem Namen gefragt hätte. Das, obwohl ich den Rezeptionisten teilweise nicht bekannt war. In Kombination mit dem nicht vorhandenen Tresor auf dem Zimmer, kann man daher nur empfehlen, seine Wertsachen bei Verlassen des Hotels mitzunehmen.
