Looking for a stylish hotel that sits right in the middle of all that Paris has to offer? The distinguished Normandy Hotel, built in 1877, perfectly fits the bill. It exudes traditional Parisian luxury with fine fabrics, opulent antiques and deep wood tones. Rooms at the Normandy Hotel offer views of the city or a beautiful inner courtyard. French doors open onto balconies that offer views of the Louvre, outdoor cafes, and the bustling streets and scenery of the City of Light.

Try somewhere else

The room I had at this hotel had a HUGE MAJOR problem. The bathroom (alright in itself) was not ventilated to the outside. The result was that both the bathroom AND the room smelled dreadfully of mold and mildew. The problem could be somewhat alleviated by closing the door between the bathroom and the bedroom (which was quite small) and by opening the French doors to the small balcony (a definite plus). The room was Spartan in decoration and small, but it was clean and the maid service was adequate. The location of the hotel is, of course, FANTASTIC, a stone's throw from the Louvre, the Palais Royal, the Tuileries, the Comedie Francaise, and the shoping on the Rue St. Honore. However, I know that, for the price, you can do better.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Since this hotel is a very short walk (like 100 yards) from the Louvre, you can have breakfast or lunch at the Cafe Marly which you can get to by going into the Louvre at the Porte Richelieu and turning into the long corridor overlooking the Cour Napoleon and the Pei Pyramide. It's not cheap, but it's cheaper than the hotel breakfast and you can't beat the view!

Fantastic location

The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly. You could not ask for a better location although it is somewhat noisy. The hotel is dated but charming. The Italian restaurant across the street is fantastic! I am very happy we did'nt listen to the reviews on this hotel. I would definately recommend it.

OK, for an OK price

Bathroom was small; rugs and drapes were a bit worn, but a very good location and the Sunday rate is quite fair.

unbeatable location for the price

The hotel was located right off of Rue de Rivoli, beside the Louvre. There was a subway nearby, shopping, the Opera, Concorde down the road. It was a very typically old style French hotel with a lovely breakfast room and high ceilings with velvet curtains in the rooms. Great location for the price.

The Invasion of Normandy (Hotel)

This hotel had an amazing location, about two blocks from the Louvre. The lobby was nice enough, as was the front desk help. The concierge was particularly helpful and patience with my terrible French. The room itself was on the small side, but the windows opened to a nice side street and there was a balcony of sorts from which I could view the Palais Royale. No cups in the bathroom; no bedframe (mattresses on the floor); the bed had no bedspread. Breakfast buffet (12 euros) was decent, but not great. I paid $150USD a night, and still think it was worth it even though the hotel has seen some better days.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Vin & Maree Restaurant was great. Don't let the decor put you off....lighting is too bright, looks like a former chinese restaurant inside. The food was amazing...I had the escargot and the scallops, each of which was great. And the side of mashed potatoes was simple but out of this world (butter and cream can work wonders).

Perfect for our needs

The hotel's location was a definite plus for us, as it was on a convenient metro line with buses nearby. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were a good size and clean. While it's true that the hotel is aging, that was not as important as the other features that made our stay a positive one.
