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. Writing desks, dressing tables and 19th-century period furnishings make the Normandy Hotel a memorable experience for all types of travelers. If fitness is a part of your daily routine, start your day with a morning walk or run through the Tuileries Garden, before heading out to explore the rest of Paris.

Perfect mix of historical setting and cleanliness.

We loved our room. While it wasn't as perfect as you might would find in a U.S. hotel chain, it had great character with aged furnishings and a twelve foot ceiling. To our surprise, the room included a mobile air conditioner unit which only produced results equal to a fan. But, it didn't matter because we could open our balcony window/doors for ventilation and it was all perfect. We spent some evenings just sitting by the open window sipping glasses of wine. Wonderful! Also, our bed linens were changed everyday! We didn't ask for this, but we were so pampered to crawl into crisp, fresh white linens each night. The bathroom was complete with tub and granite counter top and shower surround. Fortunately, we learned before our trip that washcloths aren't used/provided in France, so we packed our own and were prepared for this. Staying at this hotel totally completed our Paris experience! (It's location is right in the middle of everything too.)

Buy a metro pass to use during your stay. As long as you can walk, you can get everywhere. Learn some basic French before you go and use it when appropriate. An attempt at kindness on the traveller's part goes a long way for a postive trip experience.

Great location, poor accommodations

The room was a great size, but there was nothing in the room (i.e. cups for tea, glasses for water, etc.). Compared to another hotel that we stayed at in Paris, this one was far more expensive but lacked all the details. Being an American, I am used to ammenities, but having lived over in Europe for two years now I am used to the size and comforts of rooms in Europe...and this one fell short!

Honeymoon

- Come here for the location only. Its great. - Staff is not rude, but generally unfriendly, unhelpful. Overheard two clients complaining at front desk at different times, both about their rooms, none of them was helped so both left early, one got super upset. - ROOMS ON THE PICS ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM REALITY. - Piano in lobby is good to have, totally untuned though. - For WIFI, go to the lobby or bar and connect to Normandy.

Charming and Great Location

This hotel was old European Charm. It is in a great location...walking distance to the Louvres, Tuilleiries Gardens, La Place De Madeleine and St. Honore which has wonderful restaurants and upscale shopping. There was a full breakfast available for a reasonable price.

Perfect location

The location is perfect. 200 meters from the Louvre. Big rooms and big bathrooms. Nice bed. Rooms have the typical flavor of Paris. Very romantic but also incl. a few cracks in the walls and loose tapestry. But make no mistake. Nice hotel with a perfect location. Can recommend.

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.
