Hôtel Hélios Opéra and A Little Bit of Paris

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Paris again for work. I'm making an effort lately to take photos of the hotels I stay in during my travels. Recently, I featured Bewley's Hotel Ballsbridge in Dublin.

This time, let's take a look at Hôtel Hélios Opéra.

The bird soft toy key fob was certainly more interesting than a standard hotel card slip

I had to stop myself from arranging the wonky frame in the middle. I convinced myself that only my brows should be aligned all the time.

The muted grey tone of the walls, bedspread, curtains, and furniture suited my taste for minimalist interior. The framed black and white photographs of musical instruments threw in a touch of one's local independent café. Speaking of café, my very own Nespresso machine was my favourite fixture. No more hotel room instant coffee.

Hôtel Hélios Opéra is strategically located in the 9th arrondisement of Paris, which is ideal for shopping, museums, and architecture spotting. The closest Metro station is Trinité – d'Estienne d'Orves which is on Line 12. Via taxi, it will only take you about 10 minutes for around €11 from Gare du Nord. 

Before a couple of hectic working days, I spent my first night back exploring my hotel neighbourhood. 

Just a three-minute walk away from Hôtel Hélios Opéra is Eglise de la Trinité, an ornate Roman Catholic church built in 1867. It's currently being refurbished, but still a sight to behold at night despite the on-going work. I chose to have dinner at Café du Mogador which was just opposite the church.

rue Chaussée d'Antin corner rue de Mogador, opposite Eglise de la Trinité. Café du Mogador is the brasserie in the corner right. Walk straight up and you'll reach Galeries Lafayette

  1. Looks wonderful, love Pairs :) xx

  2. Hi hun, How are you? x
    It was about this time last year that I was in Paris and I'm sure I'm due to visit again. I love analysing the styling of hotels - that's what I loved about Vegas: all the hotel rooms are just stunning and have individual themes. You should have fixed the wonky frame ha ha, I would have had to! it looks like you had a pretty view too. So lucky to be able to travel to other cities for work - see I hate you now ha ha. Enjoy the holiday weekend x

  3. Beautiful photos, I miss Paris so much! In the meanwhile, want to follow each other, maybe inspire each other? Please let me know! Kisses and have a great week! :)

  4. This hotel seems to be in a good spot and I'm always impressed with interesting or unusual details such as the cute key fob. I'm also happy to find a Nespresso machine in my hotel room too! I'm a little behind with my blogging but I have been keeping up with your news on Instagram!

  5. Beautiful photos! I especially like the ones of the hotel. It looks lovely in every detail!! What a nice idea painting walls in different neutral shades!
