“Great Location; Friendly Staff; But A Few Issues”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012 via mobile

We stayed 5 nights here, as we love the area in the 5th around the Boul. St. Michel and the Seine. The hotel location is perfect - steps from the fountain, the river and Notre Dame. And, every room faces the river and looks out (obliquely) on the Cathedal. The hotel is steps from the Metro (line 4), and the RER B and C trains.

Room size is average for this area of the city. The room furnishings are very used, and the bed in our room (a queen) was adequately comfortable.

Staff was helpful and friendly, and spoke English fluently.

The hotel needs to make a trip to Monoprix to invest in new linens and towels. Both were worn, grey and threadbare.

Breakfast is not a good value for €14.00. The breakfast buffet is cold items only.

Stayed May 2012, traveled as a couple

Really good location, direct train to airport, 30 minutes to everywhere. Lots of restraints, night life. Very nice personnel. Early check in and late check out was free of charge, thanks a lot. Never seen housekeeping but everything was always clean. Nice room with view on Notre Dam and river, will stay next time

This hotel is ideally situated in Paris and is easy to access from Metro and rail lines. If you have a short time in Paris, consider this hotel so you don't waste your time and money getting from another hotel to the sites in the neighborhood where LRDND is located. We stayed here 5 years ago for about 8 days and revisited Paris at the end of February, 2012 for one night. First of all, the hotel is in a safe part of town right on the Seine and about a block from Notre Dame. See pictures. We took the EuroStar from London and arrived at Gare Du Nord. Took the #4 Metro in the direction of Porte d'Orleans and got off the Metro at St. Michel station. Take the stairs up out of the Metro and down the block to the right about half a block and you are at LRDND. Very handy. The same station also serves the RER C line train which is very convenient and cheap access to Versailles. Shakespeare & Co is down the block from LRDND. Sainte Chapelle, Louvre, Musee D'Orsay are easy walks. Latin Quarter, Sorbonne and Patheon are all on the Left Bank easy walks from this hotel. The rooms are clean and quiet. We did not eat breakfast here but it is available. There are lots of eating places very near by. We would definitely go back to LRDND.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel have a beautiful view of Notre Dame and the Seine.

A tiny hotel with just 10 rooms. Has great charm and is well decorated in a traditional rustic French style. The view from all rooms is absolutely outstanding, and is reason alone to stay here - day or night, you look out over the Seine and Notre Dame! But over and above the location (its a step away from St Michel RER/Metro station) and the charm, it is the outstanding personal service from Tane Kurt and his team (most speak good English) which makes this place - they went the extra mile to accomodate my late business booking for three persons, to assist with early checkin after longhaul flights and then my impromtu request for a meeting room...... Whether for business or pleasure, I highly recommend Les Rives de Notre Dame

Quaint, cozy & quintessentially French. Beautiful view of the notre dame only minutes away and lovely decor. The staff are very friendly and courteous, Kurt in particular is very helpful.I would be delighted to see more breakfast selection. Great little gem.

Everything from the service to the view was outstanding. My partner and I, decided to take my mother to Paris as she'd always wanted to visit. The experience was all the more Parisian due to the hotel. It has lots of French charm and character, very traditional and rustic. What one would imagine when thinking of France, as opposed to staying in a flashy faceless chain hotel that could feel like anywhere. The rooms are very spacious and clean, when we enquired about family sized suites we were given an excellent guided tour of the building, there a large family suites on the top floor. A lovely restaurant, lobby area, and the room doors are castle-like.
We will definitely return, the service was particulary excellent. A special thank you to Kurt for being so hospitable and helpful. We look forward to our return.

I Stay in Rives the Notredame in last week for work.
My company payed 179 euros + 14 for the breackfast.
The receptionist a guy was very polite, and ask to pay as soon as we enter in the hotel, ok we stay there for ony 1 night but is the first time that it happen. The rooms was very well arredated, but very very small. The two wrost things was the bed, it was a double bed, but it was no standard size, it was very short, so I have sleep in diagonal position, the other things, the room was very cold, outside in paris the temperature was -10 C in the room 13-14 C with no possibility to increase the temperature, I have asked to the receptionist help, He told me that it was the best temperature disponible. There isn' t no possibility to close the curtain totally so I wakeup at sunrise, romantic...The bath room was with the pool, that was very old and seems usured, so when i take the shower, it fill of wather and there was no way to empty it.The wifi connection was free, but really slow.Finally the breakfast was very poor. The best things about this hotel is the central postion near the RER and Metro station.
