Brighton Hotel - Paris

Has anyone stayed at the Hotel Brighton in Paris on Rue de Rivoli? Any comments regarding rooms, staff, noise? We have four nights booked there in October.

My husband and I along with another couple spent five days at the Hotel Brighton in Sept.2000. The rooms are not large but the bathrooms were very large by French standards. The location was very good. The metro was 2 blocks away, the Louvre just across the street. It may not be the most luxurious place in Paris, but we were happy with it and would consider staying there again.

Don, your rooms wouldn't happen to be for 10/27-30 would they? If you want to give them up, I'll take them. The Brighton is my first choice but it's full for thos dates. Lots of good press.

Don<BR><BR>We stayed there for 2 nights 2 years ago.<BR><BR>Big rooms (for Paris) with a very large, very modern marble bathroom (my wife loved it). Antique furniture. Hallways & foyer so-so. We faced the Jardins Tuileries with a tiny balcony. Big heavy doors effectively shut out the noise bombardment from Rue de Rivoli.<BR><BR>Biggest downside is the tourist hustle & noise immediately outside the hotel. We would not stay there again - too many other choices with better environments.

Don - I stayed at the Brighton last September for 11 days and I'm going back for 3 nights in October. Even though my room wasn't one of the newly renovated ones I loved it. Very big, balcony, facing Tuileries Gardens, large bathroom. Double set of French doors blocked out uninviting sounds. The view fantastic. I could see the Louvre, Notre Dame, D'Orsay Museum, Eiffel Tower and Arc d Triomph from my room.
