My favorite hotel in the worldfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Great Location - But....from MRK_CT
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 backfrom A TripAdvisor Member
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!

Loved the viewfrom A TripAdvisor Member
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.

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!!
