Enjoyed two nights in the City of Lights as weekend visitors. Hotel has the perfect location in front of the Jardin des Tuileries (opposite of the Musee D'Orsay). Real treat for our family with two young kids to have the Tuileries' open space, play area and carousel within a few minutes' walk. We had an adjoining family room. It was... More

This was our third stay over a period of 12 years at this hôtel. On previous occasions we stayed in room 61 (large 2 bedroom. Appartment facing the Tuileries garden) but as we were 'sans children' this time we had room 60 a 1 bedroom unit facing the courtyard. I can't fault this hotel. It has not shown any sign... More

The hotel itself is perfectly located on the rue de rivoli, and the spa is absolutely delightful. The food is quite good. Nevertheless we booked a superior room (normal ones are a bit small) and as they had run out of this kind of rooms they "upgraded" us to a "better" room-apartment for 5 on split level. The problem is... More

Very nice location, close to the Louvre, and the hotel building is marvelous. Rooms were spacious, but a bit old fashioned and far from well isolated - you could hear people walking on the corridor the floor above, in your bed... Bar and restaurant are fine.

Fantastic location just a wall across the road and in to the gardens few minutes walk to louvre and to Concorde the big wheel. Room was dated a bit, spa was great staff very helpful, would stay again for location and how nice people were.

The hotel is right across from the metro station and walking distance to many of the sites. Lobby is clean and not crowded. The rooms are nice and not as small as the typical Paris hotel. Toilette and bath are seperate which is very nice for logistics when 2 people share the room:) Lobby bar requires a bit of navigation... More

t´s quite hard to give stars. I could give three or four depending what I appreciate. Staff were helpful and very nice, pool and hammam were nice bonuses. Public spaces were very clean and beautiful. Location was excellent. It is near by Louvre and Tuileries Garden and metro stop. Then minuses: the rooms would be needed renovation soon as possible.... More

I booked a 3 night extension with a Viking cruise. The hotel was not nearly as good as the cruise. The location was excellent. Across for the Louvre and Tuilleries Gardens, Metro line one stop across the street. Nice area with lots of boutiques, cafes and convenient to many attractions. The restaurant was excellent for dinner. The included breakfast was... More

Situated on the Rue de Rivoli right opposite the Tuileries Gardens, you couldn’t wish for a more central location. The building is Parisian elegance and has a real feel of class when first you enter. My arrival at reception was handled efficiently and cordially, and I was lucky to be upgraded to a suite even though I’d booked just a... More

From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal, this neighborhood oozes luxury. The grand arches along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front of decorated vitrines and hotels.

After all that indulgence, the Tuileries gardens provide stately respite, while theaters compete for your applause. It's a neighborhood that draws admirers from around the world, all attracted to the luxe life in Paris.
