Henri IV Rive Gauche Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We have stayed at this hotel twice. Location is perfect, front desk friendly and helpful, spotlessly clean. We stayed in a triple. Room was small as most hotels in Paris but roomy enough for 3 + luggage. Easy to use safe in room. Bathroom spotless. It was very hot and hotel a/c worked well. Nice linens and beds very comfortable. Less than 2 blocks to Seine river. Cross the river and you're in front of the spectacular Notre Dame. Great restaurants nearby. Lovely/safe area to walk around and explore; at night the nearby monuments and bridges are illuminated; just beautiful. Visit the Louvre (15 minute walk). Visit the Cluny Museum with medieval artifacts (10 min walk).

We were recommended this hotel and when booking had asked for a triple room with a view. We are a couple with a teenager (16 year old). We were very pleased with the room we were allocated (601?) - right at the top with a fantastic view of St Severin church and the Eiffel Tower. The weather was sweltering whilst we were in Paris but the hotel was a cool sanctuary. Very close to Notre Dame and lots of great local cafes and restaurants. Hotel is immaculately clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a central Paris visit.

Great stay at this perfectly located hotel 2 blocks from Notre Dame.
We had asked for a room facing St Severin on an upper floor and
that is what we got.

Lobby is quite beautiful. Bathroom very new, modern, all marble, good
shower/bathtub, plenty of hot water. Room (301 twin) was larger than we had expected (after reading other TripAdvisor reviews) and extremely functional with lots of storage space. The furnishings (rug, drapes, etc.) appeared to be new. But the best part with the view from our window. It was the most unique view we have ever had with the church looming at what appeared to be a few feet away.

Beds were comfortable and we had no issues with noise. A/C worked great; in fact, too cold the first night, until we got the control set right for us.

The front desk spoke perfect English and were very, very helpful. Thanks so much to Walid, Sarusa, and the rest of the staff.

Overall, a great place to stay in Paris; excellent value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing St Severin, you will be glad you did. We liked the twin room.

Good things:
This hotel has an excellent staff; very helpful.
The lobby and other shared spaces are very pleasant and comfortable.
The breakfast is decent
When the double-pane windows are closed, the rooms are quiet.
And, of course, the location is outstanding

bad things:
The wi-fi is a joke. It continually disconnects.
The room, while lovely, is very small.

Room Tip: The higher, the better. Get a streetside room, you'll have a nice view of St. Severin across th...

This was the second time I have stayed here and again found it to be wonderful! Rooms were good, clean and comfortable. No coffee making facilities, we took our own travel kettle and tea/coffee! Location great near the metro and Notre Dame. Surrounded by lovely little restuarants and bars - endless choice of food and all good that we ate! Highly recommended it - only downside if you have a room at the front and its warm - busy road through the night! Would still recommend this hotel. Staff very helpful and polite.

We stayed here for 7 nights & it's for sure a beautiful hotel. The staff is sweet, & you could definitely do worse. I give it a 'very good' for location & view, but the other aspects dragged it down quite a bit.

Positive: The view was spectacular, we were overlooking Saint Severin & had a clear view of the Tour Eiffel. The room is spacious enough seeing as we were out a lot and traveling light, I could see if you had more luggage it would be a very tight squeeze, but that's to be expected in Paris.

Negatives: The room was so incredibly hot & dry each night I was sick all 7 days. We tried everything, opening the window, cranking the AC, steaming up the room with the shower, nothing helped, I woke up more ill each morning & the bed/pillows were pretty uncomfortable.

Overall it's not a bad hotel, I can't speak to it in comparison with other hotels in Paris, but it was the most expensive for the quality of any hotel I've stayed at around the world. What you're paying for is the location - which is prime - & the view - if you get it.
