Is there an inexpensive hotel near the Opera Metro station in Paris, recommended by Rick? Thank you!
Rick only picks certain areas to recommend hotels in, not becuase there are many other great areas, but because Paris has thousands of choices, he just chooses a few.
Your best bet would be to go on tripadvisor.com and look on Paris forums for a hotel recommendation. I have never used a "rick" hotel but have stayed in many hotels in Paris that I think are great and totally can recommend, and I found them all through tripadivor.com. Wondering why you want to stay near Opera metro station? ( theres nothing wrong with it, just wondering, there are more central areas, but it depends on what a person is doing)
