“Perfect Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

The location of the Hotel de la Place du Louvre is absolutely perfect! A metro entrance is just around the corner. Notre-dame is a short walk and if the Louvre were any closer you'd be sleeping with Mona Lisa by your side. Location alone is the reason to book a stay at this hotel. The rooms are very small. For one person, room size shouldn't be an issue. For two, a bit cramped. But my wife an I were out and about everyday so it really wasn't an issue. Very small elevator, better to take stairs. The hotel is outdated and needs some updating by American standards. That said, European is European. For the price, it's a good deal in Paris and it has everything you need. The help at the front desk is excellent. They will arrange private transportation, make suggestions, etc. The hotel didn't impress me by any means, but it didn't have to - the surrounding area takes care of that. I would stay there again if that's any help.

This hotel has become our favorite hotel in Paris. The rooms are now all redone to a high standard. Luxury bathrooms remains something of an oddity in France, but this hotel has gotten it right with the refurbishments!
The beds are supercomfortable and the entire decor of the room and hotel are cool, including the Cave of the Musketeers, where you have breakfast.
The hotel is located just off the Louvre, which is ideal and for those driving into Paris, there is a large underground parking just in front of the hotel, which is great, if only if you need to pick up things from the car, unloading, etc.
Despite being just off the Louvre, the street is actually very quiet.

As everyone else has said the location is great. Opposite the Louvre and within walking distance of rue de rivoli and les halles. The breakfast was good by Paris standards and the room (103) was comfortable although small - like most hotels in Paris - and with no view.

This hotel in located a stone throw from the louvre and any type of cafe/ restaurant 5 min walk to Notre-dame. The view from the room is fab although they are modest in size it's not cramped at all. You won't be there anyway other than to sleep. If you want bigger then try wasting your money on a bigger hotel but be prepared to get the metro every time you want to see anything. We walked back over the river everynight after a meal in the Latin quarter. Wont look for anything else when we go back.

We loved our stay at this hotel. The location is hard to beat - within steps of Louvre and a charming church of St Germain l'Auxerrois, short walk to Pont Neuf and 2 metro stations, yet very very quiet and peaceful. The room was clean, the bed very comfortable and linen fresh and crisp. The shower was fairly roomy by European standards. We did not take breakfast so can not comment on that. We booked a 'superior' room but it's hard to figure out how that differs from a standard room as there was no special view or particular amenities (superior was the only room type available at the time of booking).

The staff were accommodating and generally very pleasant. Overall, I thought this hotel presented a good value for money ratio and would be happy to return.

On a quiet side street near the Seine and the Louvre, this was an ideal spot from which to walk the City of Lights. Our room was small but adequate, comfy bed, nice bathrooms, towel warmers with soft towels. Our view was a courtyard but it was very quiet and we chose a less expensive room Breakfast was included-- phenomenal array of pastries, eggs, cheeses, jams, ham, etc.in the cave.
