We've lived in Paris, used Airbnb to find an apartment and used dozens of hotels there so we know the score - beautiful city, nice hotels but very small rooms and either zero of poor air conditioning. And often noisy.
We usually stay on the left bank but my wife fancied a change and after a fortnight sweltering in a non air conditioned apartment last year we decided aircon was a must, as was quiet,
Hotel Brighton exceeded our quite onerous expectations buy a good degree. The room was charming, with exposed beams and by Parisian standards it was large, certainly bigger than we expected. We chose a room overlooking the courtyard and that, combined with double glazing made it very quiet. The aircon worked perfectly and we had a cool, big, pleasant oasis right opposite the bustling Tuileries halfway between the Louvre and the place de la Concorde.
The staff were lovely and we received a big bowl of fruit plus half a bottle of champagne to celebrate our anniversary.
We never eat breakfast in Paris hotels, we prefer finding cafes, but the bar was pleasant, the drinks reasonable and the Wi-Fi was good.
All in all an excellent 9 day stay. We'll probably return to the left bank on out next visit but will certainly stay here again next time we want to be on the right bank.
We took the second level of room (ie not the cheapest option) and it was worth it. Of course it wasn't cheap but it was good value, especially considering its position next to the Meurice and round the corner from the Ritz and the Crillon which cost 3 times as much.
