      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Paris Rivoli

      Marais Location great

      from

      I wonder if some reviewers were reviewing the Hotel Rivioli (down the street and around the corner) instead of the Hotel Paris Rivioli. I found the Hotel Paris Rivioli (no. 19) to be in a fabulous location, the staff very friendly, the breakfast above normal (yoghurt, cereal, big cup of good coffee, 3 types of rolls, orange juice), small TV, and the beds comfortable and the bathroom modern and just fine. The room was small, but that is what 3 star European hotels are like. All for under 100 Euros a night, double occupancy and breakfast. We were hardly ever there as Paris was at our doorstep. March 2005

      Location & Price

      from

      Very good location and good price.

      The staff is helpful in general, but better you start the conversation with bon jour or excuse me moi!!

      Not bad for the price and location

      from

      Handy for the Louvre and Notre Dame area and near to the metro which is easy enough to see all the sights.

      The room was ok (could have better pillows and tea making facilities).

      Considering the cost of the surrounding cafes the breakfast was good with friendly staff.

      The rooms a little dated but acceptable - road noise but no problems.

      Bathroom good size and very clean.

      All in all not a bad place to stay if you want to walk the city - but take the metro - it is far easier!!

      Its all in the pillows

      from

      I stayed here in 1989 with my sister on a college summer trip. Bed was lumpy, shower terrible, and what was up with those crazy french tube pillows? However, the view from the room was great. Because the experience was so campy, I went back with my wife in 1995 as a joke - things hadn't changed at all. Pink toilet paper ahoy!

      E'nuff said, The French Guy.

      Centrally Located...Not great inside

      from

      My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in early November 2004. I agree with the other reviewers that the location is great, but the room itself was not very good. The room was quite dirty, the beds were hard, and the hotel was very noisy. Though it is not very expensive, there are better deals out there.

      Great Location... Room?

      from

      My Partner and I stayed at the Hotel Rivoli for 2 nights in November. You definitely cannot beat the location as the other reviews have said -- walking distance to shopping, the Louvre, Notre Dame, Metro, etc. It gave us the opportunity to pop back in to freshen up before going back out to eat or have a drink. The negatives were that the beds were hard (probably could use being replaced) and the room was not as clean as we are used to. (There is noise from the street side, but I happen to like that.)

      Location, location, location....

      from

      We stayed here three nights in July. The location is unbeatable as others have noted. We walked almost everywhere, except to watch the Bastille Day fireworks at the Eiffel Tower. The Marais area is wonderful (shopping, restaurants, museums, ...) and you are so close to Isle St. Louis (and the two best gelato stands in France!), the Isle de Citie (Notre Dame) and the Latin Quarter.

      The rooms are small but comfortable. We had rooms on the back, which avoids the noise from the busy Rue Rivoli. The air conditioning was welcome. The bathroom was roomy and modern. The staff were helpful and gracious. The breakfast is a good deal and better than many petit dejeuner you will encounter- they included yogurt and offered an additional choice of cereals- you can only eat so many croissants!

      Great location, good (basic) affordable rooms

      from

      My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Paris Rivoli during December 2003.

      Overall, we were happy with the hotel. We were on the side of the hotel with balconies overlooking Rue Rivoli. The hotel was great in terms of location (in the Marais, as other reviews said, perfect location for everything - shopping, restaurants, etc.). There was quite a bit of traffic noise on our side of the hotel, since Rue Rivoli is a very busy street, so we used earplugs to sleep. The bathroom was large with a full sized tub, and our room was a decent size (small by American hotel standards, but fine for a European hotel). The room had a mini fridge, which was nice for keeping some snacks and drinks in the room. The best thing about this hotel is location. We only took the metro a few times during our entire stay even though the St. Paul metro station is very nearby, because- most things (Notre Dame, the Seine, the Lourve, the Latin Quarter, etc.) were within a 15 minute walk, and we really enjoyed walking around the city. The employees were very nice - while some had rather limited English skills (We unfortunately don't know French!), basic communication went smoothly. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel because we wanted to explore the city, but the breakfast room did look quite nice (with a window opening to the street - it looks like a real cafe from the outside), and in retrospect, we probably should've had breakfast there for a couple mornings just to save money (since many places in Paris charge $4 for just a cup of coffee, we realized breakfast at the hotel is a better deal).

      Excellent location, acceptable hotel

      from

      We stayed in a double room at the Hotel Paris Rivoli for 5 nights in late July 2003. The best thing about this hotel is that it is situated on Rue de Rivoli in the heart of the Marais district (4e arr), a short walk (<5 mins) from the St Paul metro stop and close to restaurants, nightlife/bars, supermarkets, patisseries, etc. And you are about a 10-15 min walk from Notre Dame on Ile de Cite, and close to the Hotel de Ville. The room was larger than we expected, but still not all that large. The bathroom was extremely spacious too (for some unknown reason). We had a room NOT overlooking Rue de Rivoli, which was probably better in terms of traffic noise - our room was quiet. Aircon too, but beware that they turn off the power to the aircon sometime in the evening, so in summer leave the aircon on as cold as possible during the day while you are out so that the room is cool in the night when you are sleeping. Complimentary breakfast was always good and filling (pastries and coffee basically). Staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. Most seemed to speak english quite well too.

      Would definitely stay there again.

      The Dreaded First Day

      The flight was pretty uneventful - just the usual screaming kids (complete with hours of seat kicking from behind), disinterested flight attendants and an assortment of body odours. Charles De Gaul airport was surprisingly efficient and, unlike most times we have come through here, both of our bags arrived (together and on the same day!)

      ... On the way back to the hotel we crossed the oldest bridge in Paris (Pont Neuf). I much prefer strolling the streets near our hotel and those that take us to other areas of Paris with little boutique stores as they are a lot quieter and just as beautiful. We relaxed on our room for a bit to rest our sore and tired legs, then went for dinner at a nearby restaurant (again, French onion soup, then I had risotto while Alex had duck). So full after such amazing ...

      ... striking. The French garden, built on lines and strict adherence to colour palettes is next to the house. The Japanese garden, the one most likely to be familiar to people, uses the lake and the water lilies and the arched bridges made so famous in his paintings. Immediately, everyone had out thir cameras and were sighing with pleasure, and exclaiming over the beauty of each differing vista. I found it everything Versailles was not while still being French, a garden ...

As I spent a good twenty minutes trying to decide on a colour I finally walked out with the red. We were all shopped up with our Tiffany & Co and Longchamp purchases. Putting the dirty shoes, ripped jeans, messy hair and ...
