Reviewed January 7, 2013

We stayed at the Hotel Britannique on the basis of its Tripadvisor reviews, and we were glad that we had. The staff were friendly and the hotel is charming. The room was a bit small, but still well-appointed, very clean and decorated with flair. The location of the Hotel Britannique is great, being extremely close to the Louvre, Rue Rivoli, Notre Dame, etc. What we most appreciated was how close the hotel is to the Chatelet Les Halles station (specifically the Rue du Pont Neuf entrance) - it was less than a 5-minute walk to the hotel from the RER airport train.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in December 2012, and chose HB purely based on the tripadvisor rating and reviews. This was my third time in Paris. The location is perfect, within walking distance to notre dame, the seine, the louvre, shops, the metro and much more! I find that French breakfasts aren't what us Australians are used to, so I found the breakfast to be a little overpriced for what is on offer. But nonetheless it is still a nice breakfast. The room size was quite small but that's to be expected in Paris. There was still enough room for the 2 of us and our 4 bags. The reception staff were all very lovely and helpful. There is a charming sitting area just near reception which is very cosy. Highly recommend staying here, I would again if I were to visit Paris again!

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in May, and we absolutely loved it. The hotel is wonderfully situated, so that we could explore easily by foot or jump on the train very easily. Surrounded by lots of lovely restaurants and cafes, so we could find somewhere new to dine within walking distance if we preferred. We chose to go out for breakfast both mornings, and it was easy to find somewhere cheap and cheerful for coffee and croissants. Close to the river and safe for an evening walk after dinner. The room was small but beautifully presented with everything we needed, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The staff were delightful, friendly and helpful at all times, and it is a gorgeous hotel for a short stay in romantic Paris.

My wife and I spent the Christmas Holidays at the H.B and had a wonderful time, thanks in part to the great staff, the convenient location and charming comforts of the Hotel. Although the rooms are smallish for a couple moving around the confines of a room built to fit around a king bed, the room was clean, the linens were fresh, comfortable and great for warmth in December and the bathroom comfortable enough (great linens again). Staff were truly wonderful at all times and extremely helpful in calling, reserving and generally translating all requests for us. Highly recommended as a charming hotel in great area (Châtelet) near the Louvre, the Seine and Notra Dame, and easy walking to left or right bank areas around the Île de la Cité.

Room Tip: May need more than one room if traveling with family

We spent three nights last December. The hotel is well run and the location is excellent. Rooms are clean and of reasonable size (considering that this is Paris after all). Breakfast is a bit expensive with scrambled eggs and sausages, choice of different breads, croissants, brioches and fruit salad. This is a great hotel that deserves its ranking but probably wiser to take breakfast in nearby bars.

Room Tip: Best rooms are at upper floors and not facing the front street.

Our stay in Paris for a few days at the Hotel Britannique was perfect in very way. Our room was a bit small but quite adequate and very modern and nicely appointed. The staff were excellent at all times with prompt e-mail responses and assistance before we arrived. And at any hour the staff were cheerful, friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were very nice and were a great way to start our days of exploration. And the location is truly the best! Ten minutes to walk to Notre Dame or to the Louvre with a Metro station only minutes away. And the wonderful frosting for this hotel is the value. Quite a nice added bonus! On any trip back to Paris, we will certainly come back to the Hotel Britannique.
