... all headed our separate ways to try and stay awake as long as possible! Some enjoyed a light meal in the hotel, others ventured into nearby streets and the rest of us caught the train into Central Paris.
The group I was with ended up near the Notre Dame and after an Italian meal wandered around the river and soaked up the sights. With late sunset and a long twilight, it was well after 10.30 when we departed again for Arcrueil, the location of our ...

At one point, we were waiting for a bus when a woman who looked just like Nancy Severinsen (our chorus buddy) was crossing the street. I followed her up the street and outside a florist shop ...

The day had come to say goodbye to a most extraordinary part of the world – we've really loved the south of France and been blown away by its beauty, history and diversity.
The regions are so different – the scenery, the houses and definitely the people. We found the French people very helpful and we’ve had little problem communicating with them by using plenty of hand gestures and big smiles. The people of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pavillon Louvre Rivoli Paris
About what you'd expect
Stayed here in January, so we got a fairly good deal (I think around 130 Euro/night). As expected, the rooms were quite small but they were very clean. The bathroom was larger than I expected and had good temp control / water pressure. Free breakfast is included which was nice, but with so many cafes in the area we wanted to experience than instead of hotel food.
By far the best part about this hotel is its location. If you're walking, you are within distance of many tourist sites. Otherwise, there are cab stands and metro stops within 2 blocks. We also felt very safe walking around this area at night.
Bottom line - this place is worth it if you are getting a deal. If not, you can proabably find similar 3-stars in the same area that might be better values.
Amazing location, Clean and Comfy
Passing through France on business, I decided to spend a weekend in Paris to relax. I chose the Louvre Rivoli based only on Location. This hotel is in the perfect location for visiting all the major spots in Paris! There are also great cafe's and restaraunts nearby. The hotel and room were spotlessly clean, and everything seemed almost new, although the room was a little small (I was alone so this was no problem). If I return to Paris I will definitely stay there again, the best room in downtown Paris for that price.
Excellent location, friendly staff. We callled directly and got a good discount from the front desk. Will stay here again.
We just returned from a trip to Europe over Thanksgiving and stayed two nights at the Pavillon Louvre Rivoli. We were a group of 5 in three rooms and were all very pleased with this place. Although the rooms are quite small ( as is the entire hotel), they are spotlessly clean,have modern decor and are well equipped including a mini bar, hair dryer, seperate closet and nice bathroom with tub/shower combo. The front desk staff spoke english very well and were friendly and helpful. We got a great rate on Orbitz that included breakfast which is served in the basement each morning. I was pleased that along with the common rolls/coffee/juice there was some protein offered with some lean ham and also yogurt and cheeses. All the food was quite good. The location is great in that it is so close to all the major things such as the Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, Metro and Tour bus/boat stops and it is also only about a block from the Monoprix ( all purpose- groceries/sundries/clothing/liquor) store. There is also a great restaurant directly across the street from the Monoprix called the Grand Opera. It is brasserie style and at the moment employs a very entertaining waiter who is a show all by himself!! The prices were reasonable and the food was excellent. This was our first time in France and we experienced none of the stereotypes you hear about.
This hotel was found by my travel agent because of a great off-season price. It was well worth it! We had to book a trip to the D-day beaches at the last minute and the hotel staff (Anne) was amazing. She wrote out directions in both Engligh and French (in case we needed to have someone help us) and made sure everything was taken care of. They couldn't have been nicer. The rumor is that the French are not friendly...they've never stayed at this hotel!
Loved the Louvre Rivoli
Thanks to the reviews found on here, just spent a couple of days in this delightful hotel. Scrupulously clean, lovely, friendly staff and perfect location. Room at the back was very quiet - slept till 9am on 2nd morning! Breakfast was OK - not much choice (son so looking forward to pain au chocolat, but none to be found...) but for the money, this was a great bargain. Definitely recommend.
I just returned from a trip to Paris and a 5-day stay at the Louvre Rivoli. The location was great-- close to the Louvre and within walking distance from great shopping and monuments. The hotel was standard, very small but clean. It looked like some repairs had recently been made in our bathroom, but they had not had the chance to paint over the new patching.... Our room was tiny, but liveable. Noise was a problem, however. Every time the people next door to us entered or exited their room, the closing door would shake our room, rattling the photos on the wall and jarring us from sleep. Also the street is a tiny side street but there was a lot of noise from construction and some traffic, especially in the mornings. Overall, a good place to stay if you get it at a cheap price-- we got it for about $100/night. I'd also like to add that if you get a phone card in France, use it only at a phone booth. I checked out and had $80 in phone charges for dialing in to the prepaid phone card that I purchased at a small shop near the Eiffel Tower.
We got a good deal on this hotel ($100 per night). Stayed there 3/19/03 - 3/23/03 (four nights). We've visited Amsterdam, Rome, and Paris on other trips over the past three years, and this hotel (Louvre Rivoli) has been the best. The staff was very friendly, spoke very good english, and was very helpful. The lobby and everything in the hotel seemed like new - probably renovated recently and - and they keep it well maintained and cleaned. The room was small, but big enough to put your luggage in and move around. The bed was queen size - actually two twin mattresses put together, and the bathroom was totally brand new and spotlessly clean. My sister-in-law stayed in the same hotel in a different room, and hers was the same as well (so it wasn't just our room). The location could not be better. Even a friend of ours -who lives in Paris - came to our hotel and said it was a perfect location. We were about 75 meters away from a metro stop which was on one of the key metro lines (M1, the yellow line), so getting to any part of Paris was extremely easy and quick. Next time we go to Paris I will not even look around for other hotels -- I'll look first at this one for availability and book it if the price is right. By the way, if money is no object than simply go to the five star hotels. But if you are looking for a really good hotel for modest money (by Paris standards, anyway), then this hotel is the ideal choice.
Louvre Rivoli at 20 rue Moliere is a fine little hotel steps from the Louvre and Palais Royal. Small rooms and no view but good baths and everything spotless. Tasty buffet breakfast. Teeny lobby. Helpful day staff; grumpy night staff (but they let you in). At a fair price and just where you want to be in Paris.
