CLOSE TO TOURIST SITES

The Hotel Corona Opéra is ideally located, surrounded by streets overflowing with small shops and good, popular and trendy, restaurants as well as Haussmann's stylish boulevards, dominions of shopping with their department stores, but also famous for their theatres, cinemas and entertainment.

The neighbourhood also harbours countless shopping malls and covered arcades where you can discover the exquisite flavours of yesteryear. The Galerie Colbert, Galerie Vivienne, Passage des Panoramas and those of the Princes, Grand-Cerf and Choiseul are some of the most beautiful. In the Rue du Faubourg-Montmartre, adjoining the Cité Bergère, the mythical Le Palace, now a theatre once again, was once the legendary haunt for Parisian nightlife where fashion, music and the arts attracted a parade of celebrities.

For fans or simply those who like to wander, the Hotel Drouot, the oldest public auction house in the world, exhibits its fleeting collections just a five minute walk from the hotel. Finally, for its business guests, the Hotel Corona Opéra is centrally located, just a stone's throw from the Haussmann business district and the Sentier shopping area.
