On a quiet street in the 9th arrondissement, close to Olympia music hall and Le Louvre
The Hotel du Triangle d'Or in Paris is right near the Olympia music hall in the heart of the quarter of art and music (thus, the music theme in the hotel's decor). It's on a quiet street, but there are a few sex shops in the neighborhood that may make some guests uncomfortable -- though it is a safe area and not seedy at all. Guests can easily reach the Garnier Opera Theatre, the Champs Elysées, Place Vendôme, and Printemps department stores on Boulevard Haussmann. Also within walking distance is Fauchon -- one of the best food stores in Paris and a great spot to purchase souvenirs. To access other areas of Paris, the hotel is close to Madeleine and Opera metro stations.
This boutique hotel draws music lovers seeking a good value in a central location. The rooms are colorful and music-themed, with record albums used as art, and guitar paintings hung on the walls. The hotel is aptly located next to the Olympia music hall in the 9th arrondissement, making it a great spot to crash after attending a performance. The funky yellow hands adorning the entrance doors will alert guests that this is no ordinary hotel, and small touches will continue to surprise within. Near the front desk there is a multimedia area with headphones where guests can listen to CDs, and rooms have high-tech audio equipment and iPod docks. The communal areas are fun to wander -- check out the carpets decorated with stars, the sequined elevator, and silhouettes on the walls. The hotel serves breakfast for a fee, and has an area for drinks and snacks, but no real restaurant for meals. There is, however, a spa offering Turkish baths and massages.
