“Great location and atmosphere!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We loved our stay in this hotel. First of all, the location was ideal, situated right on the Seine, with a view of Notre Dame from our window. We have stayed on the Ile de la Cite before, but Les Rives De Notre Dame was a much nicer hotel. It was clean, nicely decorated, and I found the rooms spacious, for downtown Paris. Unfortunately, the elevator was broken throughout our 6 day stay, but climbing the stairs to our room was trivial compared to all the walking we did in Paris! The hotel provided us with free breakfast every day by way of apologizing for the lack of elevator service, and the breakfast room was quaint. Breakfast was simple, but good.
The only problem we had was that when I booked the rooms, I had trouble entering the correct number of people in, so that despite the fact that the room descriptions said we could put 3 in the superior room and 2 in the standard, for some reason I wasn't able to input this number. I don't know if this was my fault, but I really did try to put in the right number of people. Fortunately, the hotel staff were able to fix this when we arrived, because they said the French law won't allow extra people in the rooms, although we often put our family of 5 in a room for 4 in Canada.

Our flight was delayed coming into Paris so we didn't arrive at the hotel until 1am. Even so we were greeted by a lovely lady with a huge smile welcoming us into the hotel. The elevator was broken at the time of our stay so she insisted on carrying both our heavy bags up to the first floor, where our room was located. I thought the room was a nice size (for Europe) and very clean. The bed was very soft and a little small for the two of us. My husband and I are slim, 6ft but at the time of our trip I was 4mnths pregnant with twins. Our room was also quite loud from the street noise outside, a pair of ear plugs fixed that problem though. Breakfast was in the second basement and was ok. There was a choice of bread, pastries, cold meat, cheese, yogurt, dried fruit, hard boiled eggs and cereal. My only complaint was that once the breakfast room was set at 7am I never saw any staff restock it (breaky runs till 11am). We had a late breaky one day and arrived to a room with hardly any food left and mess all over the dinning tables from previous guests. Apart from those few things the hotel was excellent. Location wise you can't find better, the RER station is <50m and like I mentioned earlier the staff are very friendly and very helpful

The best thing about this hotel is its location. As others have said, opposite Notre Dame, and walkable to all the main sights. Also right on the metro and RER lines so easy to get further afeild as well as the airports and train stations.

Staff very helpful and friendly with excellent English. We enjoyed their restaurant recommendation (which is also in the Lonely Planet).

Room average side (we were in a superior room on the 4th floor) - would hate to have seen the size of a standard room!

Downsides: the elevator wasn't working for 3 out of the 4 days we were there. Luckily we're young and fit! Staff happy to carry luggage though. Also on one morning there was no hot water from 8am for 'maintainance'. We were warned about this the evening before so we new we had to get up early if we wanted a hot shower. But seeing as it's maintainance - they should have put it at a more convenient time for their guests like later in the day! We did get a lovely fruit basket to say sorry for the disruptions, but when you're paying the very expensive Paris prices, I'd expect more! Or even complimentary breakfasts.

Great bakery tucked away round the back streets behind the hotel - useful for breakfasts in the room. Rooms have tea and coffee making facilities, although we were regularly having to ask for more milk cartons (and on one day they forgot to replenish at all, so no tea or milk).

No issues with noise from the road below.

So - we would stay here again, mainly for the location and friendly staff, but may look for something cheaper nearby.

My wife and I stayed at this Paris hotel for 10 nights in May. We booked the standard room but were unexpectedly upgraded to their deluxe room at no additional charge which was a nice surprise.The room was spectacular in size, beautiful french decor & funishings, nice bathroom and most of all, a very comfortable bed! It is a small cozy hotel with only 10 rooms so the staff was always attentive to our needs but the hotel was mainly chosen by us for its location within the city. Not long after our arrival we were amazing on just how centrally located this hotel was. On the Seine river, Notre Dame 1 block away, the Louve 6 blocks, Taxi stand in front, and 1 block to the Latin Quarter which had all anyone would expect in Paris, restuarants, bakery, bars, clubs, souveniers, etc.. We enjoyed our stay & highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: they are all good rooms overlooking the Seine river.

This is a small hotel in the heart of the Latin quarter in Paris. It sits on the river Seine with an amazing view of Notre Dame. Street lined with cafes and restaurants are located behind the hotel as well.

The rooms here are small, but beautifully furnished. The hotel can not be beat for location and value.

The hotel is well situated, close to tourist attractions, the metro, hop on hop off bus, other than that it's all downhill from there. When we arrived, the drawers were dusty, we had to wipe them off ourselves, the bathroom had a musty smell, and the breakfast buffet was crap. The only saving grace was the staff, they were very frendly and helpful.

Just back from a two night break in Paris staying at this hotel for both nights.

Hotel is on the bank of the Seine - only a stone's throw from Notre Dame Latin District. So great location. Found it very quiet so don't understand previous comments about loud noise outside. Maybe because we were in Room 10 on the top floor? Who knows!

Our room was very spacious and clean. Was also nice and warm despite it being freezing cold outside. No faults to be found here.

Reception staff were friendly at all times and helped with our queries.

Would easily come back again - had a very enjoyable stay
