“Fabulous - location and superb accommodation”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

What a brilliant find. In my view Rue de Rivoli is the best and most convenient location for an hotel to explore all Paris has to offer. Located opposite the beautiful Jardin des Tuileries, and loads of the top museums and close to the Metro and some of the best shopping streets too. The Brighton with its beautifully renovated rooms is a great and very comfortable hotel to return to after a day exploring Paris. We visited Paris as a family of four and had a spacious two roomed suite; kids on a large comfortable sofa bed. The room did not have a view over the Jardin des Tuileries but was bright, lovely and quiet. Spacious newly renovated modern bathroom with separate loo. Hotel staff are friendly and extremely helpful. Highly recommended.

Our room was on the top floor and we were told we were "upgraded". The room was spacious, clean, and had high ceilings with wood beams. Unfortunately, this room did not have any view of Paris. Also, in October, while we were in Paris, the temperature outside was in the 50's and dipped down to the 40's at night, the hotel didn't feel it necessary to heat the rooms. So, we resorted to turning on the hair dryer in the bathroom to warm that area up. Also, the hotel was booked full, and as a result, unless you were the first one to get a shower in the entire hotel, you will not have hot water unless you wait to shower in the middle of the day. We confirmed this assumption when another hotel guest from Asia asked if we had any hot water as well as the 2 other couples that were traveling with us had none. The breakfast is ok, and offers plenty of variety to get your day started. The location of the Hotel Brighton is wonderful as it is in walking distance of the major sites of Paris and our wifi was good from our room. Bar area very minimal and no ambiance.

Room Tip: Our friends had the room on the first floor right above the hotel entrance. Late at night they coul...

We were booked for five days last October. Our room looked out on all the great sites of Paris--from the louvre on our left to the arc de Triomphe to the right. Great during the day, spectacular at night.

Hurricane sandy hit back home and we had to stay four more days. Everyone was extremely accommodating--finding us a new room with the same great views.

The staff was the best and the proximity to everything Parisian was just what we were after.

We stayed here 4 nights. The room was spacious. The front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was nice (but a bit pricey for what you got). The location was very convenient. We were able to walk almost everywhere. But we had 2 complaints. There was no shampoo in the shower. We called and asked thinking that housekeeping had overlooked it. The bellman came up with 2 tubes of conditioner. They had no shampoo. And secondly, there was no full length mirror anywhere in our room. Other than that the hotel was very good. Not the cheapest in Paris but certainly nowhere near the most expensive.

This hotel is ideally located for wandering to some of the major attractions. The room was great even though we were in the roof and looked into the centre of the hotel. This did give us some amazing beams in the room, and to enjoys the sloppy stairs if we did not fancy the lift. We did compete for first shower each time to ensure hot water which at some points in the day was a bit ntermittent.

Breakfast was good but felt slightly out of control although they were short staffed on one of the days we stayed there. Things either ran out and weren't replaced or guests were left awkwardly trying to work things out for themselves.

The hotel bar was non existent, as was the service, so nowhere to relax outside of the room.

This hotel was far better than many I have stayed in Paris and I would recommend and go back.

Room Tip: It sounds like a view from the room would make up for some of the shortcomings so get one of these i...

While the Hotel Brighton isn't perfect, we found it to be well suited to our needs. We stayed in Room 409 which has a small balcony and from there you will find a wonderful panoramic view from the Tuileries to the Eiffel Tower. The decor is somewhat tired and the bathroom could use upgrading, but this did not affect our enjoyment of the place. We felt for the price and location Hotel Brighton served our needs well. We found the staff friendly and helpful, particularly Mohammed, who always welcomed us with a smile and a pleasant greeting. Breakfasts were adequate, served in our room or in the breakfast room. There is a Metro station right out front, but if one likes walking, it is quite close to the Louvre, the d'Orsay, and the l'Orangerie. All in all, this hotel is a good value in Paris for price with an unbeatable location.
