The Hotel Rivoli on Rue de Rivoli was wonderful. Great view from balcony, good location on the edge of the Marais. A minute from Notre Dame and the islands... We stayed last week in September 2011 and Will be back soon! Thank you to the helpful staff who tolerated our ridiculously poor attempts at French!

This is my fourth time staying at Hotel Paris Rivoli. I absolutely love the location and find the price fair, for Paris standards. I had a balcony room for the second time and do enjoy the view. As another reviewer stated, there is no problem with street noise. I do not mind street noise, but I know that many do. This was my least favorite stay, though. The bathroom was nicely remodeled and clean. The rooms even appear to have received some updating. However, what has gotten worse is the musty smell and the mattress. The smell was a mix of what seemed to smell like bug spray and must. I slept with the window open to help with that. The biggest problem was the mattress. It is in dire need of a change. It sinks terribly on the sides and has a horrible lump in the middle. Overall, every night was an uncomfortable sleep. The staff were as helpful as ever, which is one of the reasons I have returned. So, I would still recommend this hotel for a night or two, but until they replace the mattresses, I cannot suggest it for more than that.

We stayed for one week in a Double Superior Balcony room on the front. No street noise with the French doors closed, fun views when we sat out there relaxing. The staff provided personal service and even allowed us to store our bicycles in the small courtyard. We found the room more than adequate with a spacious bathroom, comfortable bed and ample storage in the armoire. It was always spotlessly clean. While the lobby itself does not provide much in the way of lounging, the spacious breakfast area is available 24/7 for that purpose and there is also a small "business center" if you need to print a boarding pass, etc.

This hotel is easily accessible from CDG airport by taking RER straight into town and walking a very short distance.

This neighborhood offers so much -- the best coffee and ice cream in Paris, delicious restaurants in every price range, nice boutiques and easy access to everything. We also stayed in the oh-so-chic 7th and I much prefer Le Marais with so much within quick walking distance and a lively atmosphere.

This place has a great location. We walked to Notre Dame and the Louvre and also to the Arc de Triomphe, and there is also good public transport nearby that will get you to places even quicker.

Unfortunately that is about all it has going for it. The room was small with pretty basic furniture, the bath was small and there were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room. There was no resident's lounge area or any general sitting area apart from a couple of seats in the small reception area. When I went to get a bottle water from the drinks machine reception told me there was no point as there wasn't much in it, though did sell me a bottle. One guest had to request toilet rolls from reception.

Breakfast was available at extra cost but we did not take it so can't comment on the quality.

In summary this is really a hostel, not a hotel.

Average hotel, average rooms, average breakfast, average service. Great location! Bus stop in front takes you directly to the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. Metro stop 1 block away. Notre Dame is a short walk. Tons of wonderful restaurants and shops surrounding you. The staff was very kind and helpful. Breakfast was good, croissants, bread, cheese, meat, jellies.......nothing fancy but a great way to start the day. Rooms were clean and though old they were in good repair. Would definitely stay there again!

Return trip after an excellent stay last year. Group had 3 rooms and we had a great stay. Front desk is superb (excellent English). Had a top floor room that was spacious and clean. 4 of us shared a cab to CDG for 50 euros (30 mins). Breakfast (7am) was much better than last time.

Room Tip: Higher rooms seem better but the elevator is small.
