Right from the start, we were welcomed with friendly faces! Our room was a dream- we could see the Garden and the Louvre from our balcony. The metro is just down the street and gave us the flexibility we wanted to see all the sights of Paris. Additionally, the shops around the hotel were adorable. We never had a problem... More

Have been staying here since the early 1980s. You won't find a better location or a better view if you get one of the front facing rooms. You can see the Eiffel Tower from your bed!

We choose this hotel for its excellent position in central Paris and for the views from the bedrooms on the Rue de Rivoli. The room service personnel are helpful and efficient; the reception staff are also with the exception of one gentleman who lacks warmth and charm in contra-distinction to his colleagues.

What a wonderful hotel. Amazing location, lovely rooms, attentive staff. Great breakfast! Loved every bit of it. Only trouble was the shower wasn't usable as water was either hot or cold but the bath was great and perhaps if I'd asked they would have helped with the shower. Everything else was utter perfection and would absolutely love to return.
