We couldn’t have been more disappointed when we arrived at this hotel. The hotel lobby & lift were so small we could hardly fit in with our 1 suitcase each. It’s single file only ! That would have been ok if it had been small & bijou but it was just plain shabby. Things went from bad to worse when we saw our room - everything was drab, rickety , old, chipped & broken. It was more like a student hotel. You didn’t dare close the bathroom door for fear of being trapped in as the handle was falling off - there was even a large gouge on the inside of the door - we joked that perhaps someone had tried to punch there way out. The once white towels were grey & old. The photos on the internet show an elegant , colourful room with a large bed but this couldn’t be further from the reality. The sign outside says it was awarded 3 stars in 2012 ... this rating only lasts 5 years so it expired in 2017. It is more like a 1 star hotel. We paid for 3 nights but moved out after 1 night as they couldn’t move us to another room but the receptionist said the rooms were all the same anyway . We didn’t get a refund but hey it’s Paris and life’s too short to stay in a hotel which casts a blight on your trip. The only good thing about the hotel is the location which is great but there are plenty of hotels in the area. The receptionist was polite and nice but had nothing to offer us to make it any better.

Hotel France Louvre is located on Rue de Rivoli, right near Hotel de Ville and its metro stop, an easy walk from Isle de la Cite and a slightly longer walk from Louvre. It is surrounded by restaurants, shopping malls, small museums, and local food shops. A few blocks away is a great church which has concerts. Tour de St. Jacques is in the opposite direction. We stayed there during the metro strike in December, so, lacking easy transit to the outer arrondisements, we spent more time in the neighborhood of the hotel than we usually do when we travel, and found enough to do within walking distance. The street was quiet even on New Year's Eve, so at night, after the shops close, there's no problem with street noise. On Saturday, there was a fresh food market event across the street. It was great. We wished it were open every day. The elevator is very small, but reliable and quick. Breakfast is served in the cellar for 12 euro per person, but I don't recommend the breakfast. There are plenty of places to eat within a block. Our room was small and needed repainting, but we were happy with it. The bed was comfortable, room service came every day, the shower produced hot water (although it doesn't have a closeable door, which we Americans like but many Europeans don't care about), the TV worked, the windows opened, and there were enough electric outlets (we brought a power strip but didn't need it). The toilet flushed with enough water pressure. The corridors are very narrow outside the rooms, but it isn't so crowded that this is a problem. Front desk staff all spoke good English. There was a Vietnamese girl named Van whom we really liked, and the manager was also pleasant. We never felt unsafe in the neighborhood. I don't recommend the Boulangerie or the Bagel shop the next block over. The Boulangerie has tasty food, but it didn't agree with my stomach. The bagel shop has good decor but mediocre food. If you walk up the street past them to the left, there are a lot of Asian restaurants. The Hotel de Ville pharmacy right near the boulangerie is good. The following attractions are a few too far to walk to from Rue de Rivoli unless you are young and athletic: Tour Eiffel, Arc de Triomphe, Catacombs.

Room Tip: Get a room further from the elevator to avoid having to squeeze past the housekeeper's carts.

Our first stop in Europe and it was a great introduction. An older style hotel as expected, in an old district. Walking distance to everything or a bus stop out the front and the metro station a few steps down the street. Restaurants are everywhere around the hotel as well as mini marts. Staff in this hotel are excellent, friendly and keen to help. Yes there are some minor issues with the room but for value and location it certainly suited our needs.

The location of the hotel was perfevt as it was within easy walking distance to the Louvre and Notre Dame Cathederal. The room was very small and out outdated. Although it had a lift it was extremely small and only had enough room for three people.
