Arrived in Paris on time having made up the 15mins delay from Perpignan. The station concourse at Gard de Lyon was absolutely packed full of people. Almost stepping over them and trying to avoid running over feet with our case we eventually made it out of the station. Looked like everyone was in a …
... br> For our last hour in the happiest place on Earth we muscled our way for front on views of the castle ready for the firework show on the castle. This was just as good as everyone says and the character's they projected on to the castle helped make it entertaining with Christmas carol's to sing along to. It was a spectacular way to finish our wonderful day!
On our way home we had to pay for the train but doing out we didn't had to thanks to our Euro rail ...
... game, 80,000 at the game, great stadium. Headed home after the game, a demi on the way home, home just before mid-night where we sat at the long table for a French diner, when a dozen odd wine bottles came out and put on the table with all the trimmings I thought no chance!!! Well we did it, 3.30am and off to bed, only to rise at approx. 11am get ready and off to JP mother’s house for a long ...
... doing amazing tricks with a ball while observing everything around us. Very relaxing moment. On the way down we met few Moroccan guys, had nice chat and again, no time to waste so we had to move on. The plan was to come back catch a train back to our station. Secretly, I wanted to see Museum the Pompidou, so we kind of walked that way. But then, I realised we won't see it when we got to the metro station. Felt sightly dissapointed but decided I wont cry .But then ...
By today I had a fair idea of what I wanted to do. I had familiarised myself with the Metro to enable me to get around and had the address of where we were staying in the event I needed to get a taxi home. As it was Sunday the Metro was not too busy so a bit of fumbling at the ticket box is not a problem. In fact most of the people who buy single tickets are also learning the system too. And so it was to the Arc ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Paris Rivoli
Marais Location great
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
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
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
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
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?
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.)
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.
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Paris Rivoli during December 2003.
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.
