Hotel France Louvre

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Right on the Rue De Rivoli. But so worn down and grubby. Staff were nice, didn’t try breakfast. Only the location commends the place.

Room #35 and 36 with street view, room #52 with window but no view and water leaking noise from the toilet. I would come back and stay here again but i would avoid room 52.

we arrived @ 8/14 at 12pm we ask front desk if we can leave our luggage so we can go around. The front desk give me the key for storage and surprise of the small elevator they called left. But so far so good the room small but for me important I am safe and room Clean and also bathroom. Since we stay in the hotel From monday to Wednesday we need to leave our big luggage so we can go to london and brussels, amsterdam back to paris. Kevin front dest are so helpful he explained the whole thing. We also ask kevin if i check in again can we have the view of our room is the street. And he did upgrade us to big room with a bathtub and street view. It was so amazing, The room also include 2bottles of waters w coffee n tea, n 1pcs cookies, blow dry check, towels smell good and clean check, close to shopping area, and convenient store, close to restaurants and also a small pizza area, bus stop in front, for hop on and hop off bus stop which is green bus yes its nxt street and you can change to different bus color to reach to your destination. Walking area for notredam cathedral. And to the louvre museum 25mins walk. I would definitely recomment it. Wifi is good, hot water for shower is good. AC is good. Rate of price also good.

I hate to give a bad review, because we really did like the hotel, however I have been trying to get a double charge corrected to no avail. The hotel said they were working on fixing the duplicate charge, but now they are not responding to my emails. This should never have happened and not only was I charged twice, but of course my credit card charged me a foreign currency conversion fee on both charges.

Excellent location but the hotel needs some renovations. Some of the staff peopwl were rude.

its a little hotel on Rivoli St. very comfortable. The staff is nice, they help a lot during my stay in Paris. Very close to the hotel de ville/Notre Dame/Louvre.

Nice experience but a little short. My room was upgraded to a double. Even though I was on the street side, I heard nothing.

Everything including breakfast is great. Room sizes are okay for Paris standards.

The room was small but clean, however there was a strong smell and visible traces of mold on the ceiling and walls. When in the room I kept the fan on and the windows open or I wouldn't have been able to stand it. The bathroom was very nice, however on my second night a large panel from the ceiling fell down - caused by the vibrations from closing the main door which was quite heavy. Thank god I wasn't in the bathroom at the time because the panel was quite large and heavy.

The room was decidedly dated, but clean. Americans will be reminded by the decor of a Motel. Not glamorous or luxurious (or even all that pretty), but safe and clean with an AMAZING location, incredibly affordable (considering you're staying in Paris), and really sweet and helpful front desk staff. We paid a little extra for a superior room and it was about the size of a small hotel room in the US and had a stunning view of the Hôtel de Ville across the street. I have a gluten allergy so we didn't pay for breakfast, but there are great cafes right next to the hotel so save your euros. Go in knowing what to expect and you will not be disappointed!

Super location very close to the Hotel de Ville! Friendly receptionist. Decent room for the money.

Pros: Great location and value. During my stay, I had free wifi which was another big plus. Easy access to lots of popular attractions, such as the 2, 3, 4, 5 districts. Also, the hotel is close to the central train locations, such as the RER to get to the airport (this was huge as it saved a ton of money). Comfortable bed. Friendly staff who were all fluent in english. Con: Old hotel with dated fixtures, carpet, chairs, desks, etc. Elevator was extremely small and slow. If you want to stay in the trendy Le Marais district in a budget friendly hotel, I would recommend this hotel.

I enjoyed my stay here. I traveled to Paris alone for 10 days and this location in the Marais was close to many things including Notre Dame. The staff was friendly. The maids do not speak English so be prepared but they are friendly. I would stay here again.

The Hotel is right on Rue de Rivoli which merges into the Champs Elysees. It's near the Seine and not far from all of the main museums i.e. Louvre, Musee D'Orsay and Picasso. Breakfast in the "cellar" was very french and quite nice. I will defintely stay at the hotel again.

We had room 42 as small as a cupboard with a minute bathroom looking at the back of hotel, musty smell, molds. My poor wife suffered an acute bronchial asthma attack all night. The staff offered us room 26 on the next day slightly better, looking at the main road, NO AIRCONDOTION ,temp was 76F. had to leave window open , all night traffic noise , STAY AWAY HORRIBLE PLACE

The hotel has only one value - its location. We were on the 5th floor, Wi-Fi was not reachable that high, though hotel positions itself as the one with free Wi-Fi. I am not sure whether all standard rooms are as small as the one on the 5th floor, however two people couldn’t move around simultaneously, one had to seat down and wait for another to pass. Under the bathroom sink wet towel collecting dropping water. 7 years ago I stayed in Paris in 1 star hotel. Did not see the difference in amenities of 1 and 3 star this time besides the price.

The room was small but expected in Paris. Room was clean but very old. This hotel will do if you're not planning on spending a lot of time in the room. The location was ideal. Middle of Paris and access to Metro/RER/BUS. Lots of restaurants in the area and near the river which makes it great for night life by the banks.

I recently stayed at Hotel France Louvre and had an amazing experience. Hotel staff was very helpful with recommending restaurants and planning my side trip to Vimy Ridge. The hotel is in a great location for using the metro and is a ten minute walk from Notre Dame and the Louvre. Free wifi was available, AC in the room and the shower had great pressure/very clean. Although the room was very small compared to Canadian hotels, it was still a great place to rest your head at night and take in the oldest parts of Paris. I do not recommend the breakfast at the hotel because you can get better value at other close by restaurants. Overall, great hotel for the price and I loved my experience!

This is a small boutique hotel located near the Marais neighborhood in centrl Paris. The location is perfect - convenient to transportation, great walking neighborhoods, great restaurants and bars, the Seine and lots of attractions. The rooms are small, especially the bathroom,s but are the perfect European experience. Not for you if you need the luxury of American style rooms, but perfect if you like quaint and funky! Rooms on the street have a great Paris street view, but rooms in the back are quieter.

The Hotel France Louvre is a quaint French hotel with a relaxing atmosphere and comfort. The staff is ultra accommodating and very pleasant. Location is ideal for local atmosphere. Breakfast is in an adorable grotto with delicious food. Loved it.

Dear Sir, We sincerely apology about this situation. We ask you to pay at the check out by mistake because you already paid at your check in and we apology for didn't seen it was already paid. When we saw that, we immediately ask to our accounting department to proceed to a refund because refund on stranger credit cards is difficult, there is a lot of process to respect and it takes time. We need agreements from different people and in August, most of people are in holiday. I personally wrote you an e-mail at the beginning of the week to let you know that we were still waiting the agreement. You will get refund, be sure of that but it can takes some times because of holiday and bank delay. I apology sincerely one more time about this bad case and we thank you for your patience. We are glad to read that you enjoyed your stay in our hotel and we hope you get a good return to your home. Kind regards, Marine, Front desk manager
