Wow, for the price we paid,(210 euros a night), but with one free night after 3 paid, it averaged out to 160,and included a breakfast served in the nicest breakfast area, bright with high ceilings and pleasant waiters, this place was great.
We booked a " view" room, and it was worth every single penny( the non view rooms are cheaper) . Two small balconys with outstanding views of Effiel Tower, Lourve and Tuilleries Gardens.
Very large ( by Parisian standards) room , clean, nice staff( spoke english) and located so close to Lourve. Air conditioning worked well, and there was a mini fridge in the room as well as a safe.
Downsides were I didn't particularily like being in the 1 st arr. as in the evening it quiet, unless you like to walk from little t shirt stand to t shirt stand.
I would stay there again though. Only in a view room though.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Brighton Hotel

My favorite hotel in the world

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Brighton for two weeks in June and for 8 nights in August 2004. We loved every second of it. The location is perfect, within walking distance of all the major attractions and the view from the room was breathtaking. Each night we could see the Eiffel tower sparkling on the hour every hour from our bed! The staff were beautiful people. They kept our two hand luggages for over 8 weeks while we travelled through Italy, and did not charge a cent! The junior suite is the best value hotel room in Paris. You will save literally hundreds of dollars if you stay at the Brighton, rather than the Meurice down the road. Take advantage of the airport transfer service, it is excellent value, compared to taking a taxi.

Great Location - But....

from MRK_CT
Great Location but…

We recently stayed at the Hotel Brighton for 3 nights and generally a great time.

The Hotel is a 2 minute walk from the Tuileries metro (the RER B train from Charles De Gaulle stops at Chatelet and then hop on to the La Defense Metro for a quick 3 mt ride to the Tuileries Metro station – do note that the stations on this line are not all equipped with escalators/elevators – using the train to get to the hotel from the airport with heavy luggage could be a concern). The Concorde Metro Station is a 5-10 mt walk. With regards to sightseeing, the Louvre was a 5 mts walk, the Placa Concorde with the Obelisk a 5-10 mt walk, the Plaza Vendome a 5-10 mt walk – you get the point.

The bottomline - the hotel’s location is just perfect for sightseeing, for transfers from the airport and even shopping – if you want something quieter and less “touristy”, I would suggest looking elsewhere.

The Hotel staff were polite, friendly and recognized the fact that several tourists/visitors had access to the Internet and a negative/positive review would vastly influence the hotel's prospects.

Now comes the “but…” part – we had a smaller room facing the courtyard side of the hotel – the room size like many other Parisian hotels was small but adequate – bathroom was great. The only point of inconvenience were the “extremely thin” walls – No AC meant keeping the window open which only amplified the issue. The walls seemed so thin that one could hear almost anything from adjoining rooms/floors – I would summarize the issue by "We are glad that I didn’t bring our 10 year old along – explaining the nature of the sound/noise would have required a great deal of imagination".

All in all – a very nice hotel – would definitely go back with the aforementioned caveat

Absolutely wonderful-will go back

from A TripAdvisor Member
Had trawled through tripadvisor and a pile of paris hotel websites before eventually choosing the Brighton. I was thrilled with my choice. My friend and I were in Paris for three days with the intention of seeing the major tourist spots and having a relaxing break. I genuinely feel that staying in the Brighton turned this from a good holiday into a truly memorable one.
We stayed in a junior suite (no.309) which had the most fantastic view. Two french windows opened onto a long balcony which overlooked the Jardins des Tuileries. To the left was the Louvre and to the right Place de la Concorde and the Eiffel Tower. It was tempting to just stand staring all day instead of leaving the hotel! When we did leave though we found that it was possible to walk almost everywhere. Champs Elysée is around 10mins away, Louvre is 5mins, Notre Dame approx 15-20mins.
The room was large with 2 single/twin beds, a writing desk, dressing table, sofa, armchair, minibar and safe. "Multichannel TV" meant mainly French channels, CNN, NBC and German MTV. So we're now far more educated re the stock exchange etc!
The bathroom was fabulous with bath, separate shower (good power) and double sink.
My only gripe was that we never figured out how to work the air-conditioning...
Staff were pleasant without being overbearing and had very good English. They booked Moulin Rouge for us and were on hand for taxis etc. Also got shuttle bus which was €19 each-we thought it was worth it to avoid dragging bags etc to airport (although hotel is almost directly opposite "Tuileries" metro station)
Overall would highly recommend and plan to return as soon as I can afford another holiday!

Great value and location

from A TripAdvisor Member
A wonderfully convenient location and excellent value. My son and I stayed three nights at Hotel Brighton in March 2003. I had discovered it when I shared breakfast there with a friend who was staying at another hotel nearby. Ryan and I had a second story room facing the street...the view is second to none in Paris! On the far left was the Louvre, in front of us was the Tulleries Gardens and to our right the Eiffel Tower. The tower is really lovely at night. (Please note: you might have to stay on a higher floor to have the same view later in the year when the trees are in full foliage.) We enjoyed each morning in the beautiful breakfast area and could not have asked for better service. A helpful staff member scheduled a fixed-price private shuttle to take us to the airport, so we could save money over taking a taxi. I hope to return. Enjoy!

I loved this hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned from staying 4 nights at the Brighton mid-June 2004. I selected this hotel after reading comments from Trip Advisor. I booked a junior suite for 3 people (my husband, myself and teenage son). We stayed in room 308 a corner room on the 3rd floor with 3 sets of french doors. We had a king bed and a fold-out couch. The room was extremely large, nicely decorated and the bathroom ran the length of the room (separate tub and shower). The location was great for walking to see the sites. The nightime view of the Eiffle Tower was spectacular. Rennovations at this time were in the front of the hotel in the lobby and did not affect our stay. There are actually two elevators, one is larger and newer than the other. I would definitely stay at the Brighton again.

Great Hotel Big Big Rooms

from brab
This hotel is directly across from Tuileries Gardens right on Rue Rivoli. Only 1 block from the Louvre. We had a large unrenovated but totally charming room to start with, but the creaky floor, no shower and no english TV encouraged us to move (though the night time view of the Eiffel Tower was hard to give up). Our renovated room was huge and the extra large bathroom came complete with a separate shower stall. As others have stated, this hotel is in constant renovation and our stay was no exception but it did not affect us at all. We rather liked using the old tiny tiny elevator and the uneven floors added some extra charm. We would definetly stay here again and would highly recommend this hotel . It was a pleasure.

The Best!!!!! April, 2004

from A TripAdvisor Member
Location, Location, Location. My sister and I just returned from Paris and this was our first visit. We had a great room with a view of the tullerie gardens and the hotel is just a block from the Louve. The staff are very friendly and they were just finishing up their remodeling. My favorite....The towel warmer in the bathroom. Very great hotel for the price, location and hospitality. I will certainly stay at the Hotel Brighton on our next return to Paris. If you choose breakfast, you won't be disappointed. For about 9 eruos you get juice, cofee and an assortments of breads.

Loved the view

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at the Brighton from April 7-12, 2004. The renovations continue.
We were in a junior suite overlooking the garden. It was an incredible view. The Louvre, Musee dOrsay, the Eiffel Tower were all in view. The location was central, we could walk everywhere. We will stay at this hotel whenever we are in Paris. It was a great value for the location.

Great Hotel

from gravesco
My daughter and I spent 1 night in March 2004 at the Brighton Hotel and were very pleased with the hotel. The hotel had been recommended to us by friends who had also stayed there. We had a double room (two twin beds) on the 3rd floor with a view of the gardens. It was one of the renovated rooms and quite nice. The best part of the room was the incredible view from our window and balcony - amazing at night! The bathroom was very nice (although the hand-held shower setup did take some effort to avoid putting water all over the floor - the glass shower partion only covered 1/2 of the tub space; I had the same setup in my hotel in London). The front desk staff were very helpful in suggesting restaurants and even calling to see if we needed to make reservations for dinner; they were also quite helpful in making sure that we could get a taxi to take us to the train station during the Paris "rush hour". We would definately stay there again - the location (across the garden from Lourve) can not be beat. It is also right across the Rue du Rivoli from a metro stop (although we walked everwhere and did not use it).

What a great find

from lindacarlson12
We were very fortunate to have found Hotel Brighton. Having never been to Paris we were very happy with the hotel. It was a great location close to the Metro. We took the Air France bus from the airport to town. The Metor stop is right there and an easy trip to the Metro stop across from the hotel. We will definitely go back.

Top Local Tips for Paris

Chez Ami Jean Check out this typically French bistro restaurant where we spent 2 and a half hours over a taste bud tingling lunch and paid the princely sum of €40 for it. Exquisite food and delightful staff - watch out for the Demoiselles de Bonne Famille - it means nothing like it sounds and is in fact ... Sheep's balls! It's in rue Marlar 1st Arrondissement. We went on Saturday lunchtime and were lucky to have booked in advance. It's bustling, small and crowded but none of that detracted from our enjoyment of it.

paris is not stroller friendly paris is one of the worst place to travel with strollers and buggies.

Paris at Night Book the Moulin Rouge with a company that offers a free river cruise...beautful at night...and if you get the late show, they usually add a Parisian Lights Tour, also lovely!! Stay at Hotel Brighton for views of Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, Arc de Triumphe, perfect location!! See the Eiffel Tower at night, shoter lines and pretty lights!!
