    Historical Traveler Reviews Tonic Hotel Louvre Paris

    A good place to stay with children.

    from

    Our family of 5 (2 adults, twins aged 5 and 1 yr. old baby) just spent 3 nights at this hotel (5/27/04-5/31/04). A basically pleasant experience. We did not eat the breakfast in the hotel....here is our deal:

    One staffer did speak to me in a harsh tone when I checked in saying that the room was for 3 people and asking how many were we. I told him that I had discussed this in GREAT detail with Fatima via phone and email prior to making the reservation. The woman at the front desk stood up for me and said but they are just small children. He said okay and that was the end of it. This upset me initially but I soon forgot about it.

    Our room was on the ground floor (Room #11). It was spacious enough, clean and comfortable. The long hallway in our room provided a nice spot for the stroller, and the closets were big enough to hold the carry on suitcases. Though sparse on decor, the beamed ceiling and brick walls lent a nice feel to the room. The support staff was helpful and always nice. Also, we did notice other families with children in the hotel.

    The boulangerie (Julian) around the corner was voted #1 in Paris. The pain au chocolat and tarte frambois were EXCELLENT! In addition to the boulangerie, there was a fruit stand, expresso bar, cheese shop and money exchange store front all within a block of the hotel. On Rue de Rivoli there are tons of shops for shoes, clothes etc. But the quieter streets on the sides hold the secret special loot.

    Since our main objectives were to eat pain au chocolat, see the Louvre and visit friends on the outskirts of town, this was the ideal location. The Metro is VERY close and is a main station (Les Halles) from where you can reach many destinations. The food nearby is authentic, reasonable and delicious. The Louvre is in easy walking distance.

    We can not wait to return to Paris with the children!

    Great Value for our Family Room

    from

    We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and travelling with 3 young kids, we needed to look for a room that could accommodate all of us comfortably. This family room in this hotel worked really well for us with 3 single beds and 1 queen size bed.

    The positives (by European standards): Fairly Spacious, Moderate Prices, Clean Bathrooms, Good Mattresses/Beds, has all the basics covered (a/c, fridge, 20-inch TV) but nothing luxurious. Also, great location and friendly staff.

    The negatives: Hardly any closet space, windows with no view, tiny elevator ... fortunately in our case, these were not priorities so the hotel and room worked very favourably.

    Expect simple 3-star standard but clean, basic facilities and you will not be dissapointed.

    Finally for 10 euros for breakfast, you can do better getting a croissant across the street.

    Nice staff but below average rooms.

    from

    We were somewhat disappointed. The facility is old and run-down. The rooms/bathrooms have not been updated recently and are fairly run-down so it's difficult to really relax here. We stayed for 5 days and were more than ready to leave. Having said that, the staff was very helpful, spoke English fluently. The breakfast was a little pricey for the very limited offering. We will not return to this hotel. There's a very nice Best Western 1 street over we wish we had known about.

    Style and Location

    from

    I have visited this hotel over a dozen times. The last time, one of the staff loaned me (gave me) 10 euros to catch the RER for my subway to CDG airport. I am sure he did not know me from my previous trips. The staff is incredibly nice. Each visit I try my french, the staff sends me back english with enthusiasm. The rooms are clean and acceptable for young people. (The rooms are small.) Each shower has a steam/ whirlpool device. Bathrooms are modern and white. Note: This is not an expensive hotel. Very basic sheets and fittings. All rooms are quiet from street noise. The best rooms face the street. The location is great if you like the Right Bank. I never used the tiny elevator. The lobby design is modern. I believe the price, overall design, location, and staff give you a nice value.

    Great Hotel!

    from

    We stayed here in May '02. I thought it was a great location. The room was large, we got a family room which had 3 twins and a double. The bathroom was very clean, all tile with whirlpool tub and steam bath/shower. The room was done in Toile wallpaper and I thought it was very Parisian and charming. The staff was great and very helpful.

    Didn't have the breakfast so I can't comment on that, we were in Paris, I preferred to eat in the cafes.

    Mediocre at best

    from

    Tiny elevator, MINIMAL decor, but very helpful and english-speaking staff. The breakfast offered is NOT worth the 10 Euros per person! Rather go to any cafe outside for breakfast. Location excellent with lots of shops and restaurants. Samaritaine (big Nordstrom-like store) is one block away. Nearest metros are "Louvre-Rivole" and "Les Halles" which has x-fers to everywhere. Room was painted yellow but was TINY TINY TINY and bathroom was small, but it was quite clean and modern. There was a "steam" shower in the bathroom but it wasn't working. Also -- a bummer -- we were assigned the 5th floor when the elevator/lift only goes to the 4th floor. Which was not fun considering they had no bell boy and we had to carry our luggage up and down. Bed was comfortable but was just two twin mattresses pushed together. And it sagged in the 'middle.' This is a two star hotel with clean bathrooms. Hallways were old and dull. People who worked there were nice and smiled a lot.

    Great hotel!

    from

    Very clean, comfortable, perfect location. Not really quirky or charming -- more business-y and a bit impersonal -- but we enjoyed our stay. The whirlpool bath was a nice extra touch. We got it for about $120 USD a night.

    Onwards and we finally arrive at the Pullman Paris Montparnasse Hotel at 5pm after a 9 hour trek. Check in and we are on the 11th floor, Jim & Di are on the 16th.

    Free time now until the morning.

    Ventured out and found a nice little french cafe where we had one of our best meals so far on tour.

    ... insane this weekend, we would've spent all day in lines!

    Monday I went to the Louvre with the Gorius family, I could spend hours in the museum just looking at all the collections! Of course we went to all the most famous pieces but we also got to see Napoleon the III's apartments which were beautiful! Definitely worth going to see if you make it to the Louvre. That was very fun because it was one of the parts of the Louvre that I hadn't seen before. Then ...

    Flight was Santorini to Thesonolaki to Paris CDG with Aegean

    We got up early, got everything packed into our bags and fixed ourselves some sandwiches. Poppy came to the door and asked if we could leave early because she had to meet the boat at 11:00 and we were glad to help here. She also gave us a small gift to remember her place and our trip to Santorini. Such a great sendoff.

Gary and I just shared 6 snails as a starter...but we certainly weren't game enough to try Steak Tartar (raw mince meat...mmmmm) eekkkk....although Dad has had it and he enjoyed it. After a bottle of yummy Red wine to share and dessert we headed out back into rain :-( to find a cab home.
    Tomorrow we are going to mission it to Notre Dame and see what else takes our fancy. Should be good!

    ... bus we were going to take was out of service at that point around 12:30 so we left to find a metro that would get us home where we could sleep. After buying our tickets we got on the platform where we found out that we would be getting the very last train of the night (or more like morning) which was quite the relief.

    By the time we got to our rooms, it was half past one in the morning. What a way to spend our last night in Paris
