    Excellent location. Love the rooms (especially the bathroom). It has the smallest elevator we've ever seen.

    Brighton Renovation


    We just returned from our third stay at the Brighton. We always request a fourth floor room with balcony overlooking Paris from end to end and with a bird's eye view of the Tuileries. The newly renovated rooms are attractive but seem to be smaller and the bathrooms have hand-held showers but no curtain to keep from splashing all over. The renovations seem to go on for years! This time they were painting the hallways and there were "Wet Paint" signs all over. The staff is very helpful and the location can't be beat. So, in spite of a few problems, we'll be back.



    well, i must say that for me the hotel brighton was ok. i agree with all the other reviews that it is in a great location. fabulous view from rooms facing the street. i think my mom found it in a paris tourist book under, "great prices, great locations". i must admit, the actual hotel kinda disappointed me. i remember thinking it was kind of shabby, and looking longingly at the hotel meurice down the street. but i must admit, if i had the choice between a much nicer hotel in an average location, and hotel brighton, i would go for hotel brighton.

    What a great hotel!!


    I recently returned from Paris and while there stayed at the Hotel Brighton. The room was clean, lovely and had a amazing view of Tivoli Gardens, The Louvre, Musee d Orsay and the Eifel Tower. The staff was polite and very friendly and I will definitely stay at the Hotel Brighton on future trips to Paris. What a wonderful hotel form the price!!

    The perfect respite


    Old world charm at it's best! We had a street side room with an unending view - the Louvre to Tour Eiffel and a peek at Arch de Triomphe! The staff went out of their way to help us arrange our day or make reservations and recommendations. The rooms amenities were perfect for the busy tourist - not more than we needed (the best was a refrigerator for our cheeses). The hotel is undergoing some renovations, but we felt privileged to have not been a part of that - we can get all-to-modern at home. Location wise - we found it to be well placed---the metro....the museums....restaruants iour favorite entertainment - watching Paris Parellel Parking from the breakfast room. Hotel Brighton was a respite from a wonderfully hard day touring.

    Perfect Paris


    The Brighton hotel is the perfect choice especially for first time visitors to Paris, with children-The staff was very accomodating and friendly, and the location couldn't be better.We opted for a small suite,traveling with one child, and it was a large room with balcony and a sofa bed for my son.The view is magnificent and we loved standing on the balcony watching the lights come twinkling on across the city.We could easily walk to most of our destinations, and again, the staff was very helpful with directions and advice.The only downside was lack of air-conditioning because it is a busy,noisy location to sleep with the windows all open as we did.It is a terrific value, and very charming!

    Incredible View at Brighton!!


    This was the most wonderful surprise I could have imagined for my first visit to Paris. Staying at Hotel Brighton just felt like what I imagined Paris should feel was incredible. The view from the balcony was more than you could ever dream of....directly across from the gardens, to the left was the Louvre, to the right was the Obelisk and the Eiffel Tower - all within sight of our quaint, nice clean and lovely room. I'll certainly stay there again. There's no way the big chains could make your heart feel so good about a city so filled with history!

    Loved This Hotel


    I did a lot of research for our trip to paris and I hit a home run picking this hotel.The room was everything we wanted. We had a room over looking the Blvd. You could see the Louve and The Eifel Tower. The service was good and the locatation was great. When I go back to Paris I will be staying at this hotel again

    All of Paris from your Balcony!


    I've stayed at this hotel at least 6 times over the past several years. It is a few doors down from the 5* Hotel Meurice, & delivers those same amazing views of the Louvre, D'Orsay, Eiffel, & Arc de Triomphe with the Tuileries front & center , but for a *lot* less money! The staff speak excellent English & are very helpful. Don't be put off by the uneven hallways...the "shabby-chic" rooms are very good sized with plenty of closet space, often in giant antique armoirs! All the rooms have unique, french country decor; nice desks, some have fireplace facades & mantles, wall mouldings & toile wallpaper. All seem to have spacious bathrooms & little fridges, & usually a big sturdy luggage stand.The location is unbelievable: right on the main metro line that runs across the left bank, & just down the street from the Louvre. The Tuileries gardens across the street are lovely to stroll through. Champagne on your balcony at sunset is an unforgettable experience. There's a corner cafe 3 doors down, a pharmacy 1 street over, & a small internet cafe around the corner.Note that I would recommend *avoiding* those rooms with long, bathrooms that share an entire long wall with another room's bathroom, or that share a locked door, as the sound really carries.Otherwise, a great, reasonably priced hotel!

    Hotel Brighton


    We stayed in the Hotel Brighton from 3/29 to 4/7/2003. I picked it becvause of the location next to the Tuileries garden and the Louvre, which was in fact fantastic. Booking was difficult, since you have to book directly to the hotel; I called 8 months in advance and asked for a renovated double room on a top floor facing the gardens. When I checked back in Jan. because they had scheduled a rate change, I was told the room we had been given was on the courtyard side, and there were none of the rooms that I wanted available but we could have a non-renovated room with a view instead. I asked for a room on a top floor again. When we got there, we had been given a very tiny room on the third floor, and yet when I checked the floor plans there was a room on the fifth floor, more than twice as big, with 2 balconies, for a lot less, but we couldn't have it because it had just been booked. This sort of thing was very typical of the hotel staff, who seemed to go out of their way to be vague, unhelpful and generally bothered by our presence. My advice if you want to book this hotel (which I'll say again has a location and a view that can't be beat) is to ask them to FAX you a copy of the current room rates (which vary by room) and the hotel floor plans. Pick a specific room and make sure it's the one you get. Also- finding food in this area for a reasonable price can be hard, especially at night: there's a mall underneath the Louvre with a food court that we wish we had discovered before the last day of our trip! Bon voyage

    Amazing View


    We stayed at this hotel 2 years ago. If your room is on the street side, you will have the most amazing view of Paris. We all were very pleased with the view from our balconies. The location was excellent. Across the street from the METRO, a couple of doors down from Paris Tours and a couple of blocks from Cityrama Tours. Also easy waling distance to the Hop a Bus. The rooms were clean and very nice, each room was decorated differently. This Hotel is very old and quaint. The worlds smallest elevator and steam pipes running the the ceiling in the halls lent to its charm. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a great veiw and an excellent location. The staff was very pleasant and all five of us on the trip were very pleased with out choice.

    We've arrived at Paris and had a big sleep in because of jet lag from the plane trip yesterday. In the afternoon we took a tour of Paris and went to the 2nd level of the Eiffel Tower. We saw almost the whole city. It was quite spacious and not as crowded as I thought it would be. It was good weather and clear skies so we could get good views. We …

    ... Feet tired and ankle sore, time for home and a letter to the Minister of Culture.
    Tuesday continued the theme with us heading early to the tower, home to level 2 in under and hour. It was the first time Jude had been up the tower and she was highly excited. We were not able to go to the top because of the fog but even from the second level it was marvelous with the golden city laid ...

    ... grand boulevards and winding through tiny alleys, we walked.

    Some of our Paris was the Paris of tourists. We admired the splendid architecture of Nôtre Dame and the view from the terrace of Sacré Coeur - though long line-ups discouraged us from entering the former and we stubbornly climbed the 220 steps to the latter rather than wimping out on the funicular with the less hardy souls. (Hey, we may be over 60 - but we're still 17 ...

    So it was time to venture into Paris, Michael and Cath were going to help me get my bearings and show me around a little which included a visit to the Arc de Triomphe, a walk in and around the Tuileries gardens, walking from the l'arc de triomphe du carrousel (the baby arc de triomphe) which is just before the Louvre to the Egyptian monument where all the beheadings used to occur and then onto the ...
