    Sunset over Paris


    This hotel overlooks the gardens next to the Lourve. You could also see the Eiffel Tower, Napoleans tomb and Notre Dame.

    The hotel website says: Built in 1830 by Lord Egerton, it ranks among the oldest hotels in Paris, and ever since, exerts a real attraction with its breath-taking view of the Tuileries Garden and of the most beautiful monuments in Paris.

    Breakfast can be taken in the spacious and luxurious breakfast hall, embellished with marble columns and large mirrors. Breakfast: 23 €

    61 rooms, between 180 € and 390 €

    Unique Quality: My children and husband stayed here. They said the room was large and they had a huge balcony It was more reasonable than the hotel in London and it looks like the room was twice the size

    Comfortable with great views


    When we were choosing a hotel for our stay, we decided that we wanted to go a little more upscale since it would be Christmas and my birthday. WIth some research and recommendations, we chose the Hotel Brighton and were very glad that we did.

    First is the great location - near the Tuileries Gardens between the Louvre and the Place De Concorde. Also very close to the Tuileries Metro station.

    Next is the hotel itself. Nicely decorated without being overdone. Beyond the small reception area is a sitting room where you could relax, read the paper or make use of a computer. There was also a dining area off the reception area to enjoy breakfast. We saw others in the morning, though we like to sleep in a bit and then hit up one of the great boulangeries or patisseries.

    The room was a real treat. Very spacious, with a large bathroom that had both a tub and separate shower, There were double sinks so we could both get ready without bumping into each other. There was a separate WC between the bathroom and bedroom areas. The bedroom itself was a large space, with a comfy bed, a desk plus a chair and footstool. There was a balcony and we never closed the curtains so we could enjoy the view.

    We would definitely return to the Hotel Brighton. While not inexpensive, it was a good value for the money given all the positives.

    Unique Quality: We were on the third floor and our room faced out towards the Tuileries Gardens. That said, the views were outstanding. We could go out on the balcony and look left to see the Louvre and the pyramid in the courtyard, then turn to the right and see the Eiffel Tower. At night, we said we used the Eiffel Tower as our night light.

    In addition to the great view, we have to say that the hotel staff was terrific. Very friendly and helpful, they even let me use my "french" without laughing (until we did). They definitely made our stay pleasant.

    Directions: Located on the Rue De Rivoli, directly across from the Tuileries Gardens. About 50 meters from the Tuileries Metro stop.

    Great Rooms and Service


    Stayed in the top floor. We had two balconies and a huge bathroom with a stand up shower and a full bathtub. The room had been remodeled along with the bathroom. The service was outstanding. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone going to Paris. Perfect Location!

    Directions: Right near the Louve!

Beautiful hotel, wonderful location

by A TripAdvisor Member

The Hotel Brighton had great amenities and the bed was so comfortable! I loved the view from my window and how it was only ever a short walk to where I wanted to go. I also liked how I wasn't staying at an American hotel abroad. I wanted the full Parisian experience and I got it.

Location is A+ everything else is a C

by A TripAdvisor Member

We chose the Hotel Brighton following glowing reviews on Trip Advisor... great view, clean etc...

Well we got to the Hotel and the location IS spot on; just 2 minutes walk from the Louvre, 2 minutes from Place de la Concorde on Rue de Rivoli and with a super view of the Eiffel Tower (so I hear...).

We were a bit dissappointed with the room allocated to us. The concierge informed us that we could have a renovated room so we were imagining a bit of luxury. As it turned out our room was small and functional. It had air-con a tv and a minibar, but that was basically it. The bathroom was small but sufficient with an ok size shower. The room was on the E/S floor (1st floor) meaning it was just below the arches of the Rue de Rivoli so no view at all but plenty of road noise.

The Hotel Brighton has no restaurant or bar. They do serve petit-dejeuner on a morning for EURO 8 per person.

Great location & view!

We just returned from Paris, having spent 3 nights at Hotel Brighton. We stayed in an unrenovated room, which was adequate for these few nights, but the beautiful view we had made up for anything lacking in the room. From our balcony we could see the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, etc. A metro stop is across the street, the Louvre is a 5 minute walk away & there are plenty of nice restaurants within a 5 minute walk. This hotel's strength is in its great location! Continental breakfast at 8 Euros was okay, staff, particularly Bernard, was friendly & helpful. Spend the 19 Euros a person & take their hotel shuttle to the airport. It's quick & fast! We would definitely stay in this hotel again but probably in a renovated room next time. Only criticism: They forgot our wake-up call the morning our flight left. Thankfully, we woke up on our own.

I would stay again

We recently had two rooms at the Brighton Hotel which is on Rue De Rivoli opposite the Tuilleries Gardens. Exceptionally well located in the centre of Paris with wonderful gardens across the road. Each room was 162 Euro per night per double with breakfast included. It is a little on the pricey side but still good value. The rooms we had were renovated and one of them was quite spacious. Even the smaller one was a reasonable size. The staff were very helpful. You have a trade off to make on room location. If you overlook the Gardens or close too them with a partial view, Rue De Rivoli is very busy and noisy. If you overlook the inner part of the building you loose the majestic views but its very quiet. I would stay again.

Top-value hotel on the right bank

Just returned from a short break in Paris where I stayed at two hotels, the second being the Brighton. Had no choice of room; only one left as it was the weekend of the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamps and Paris was swamped with the British racing fraternity! Stayed in Room 305 which is on the side of the hotel and therefore doesn't have a panoramic view like the rooms fronting on to the Rue de Rivoli, but still has a view over the Tuilleries and is a bit quieter. The room was massive by Parisian standards (junior suite 198 euros) and had a bathroom as big as those at the Savoy in London. Excellently renovated and equipped.

As it is a couple of doors down from the Meurice you could lunch or dine there, use their facilities, but only pay a third of the price for your accommodation at the Brighton.

Great location, great value.

However if you want bacon and eggs for breakfast English style ask for "oeufs sur le plat" and for your bacon to be served whole. Otherwise you will get (badly) scrambled eggs with bits of bacon in them.

Ahhh - Paris

"The Hotel"

I am sure a lot of people have this picture, but now I have it!!!

This is the Memorial Cemetery at Normandy, France. This was very moving for me becasue I am the first person in my family to visist the grave of a fallen relative here. Very powerful place to visit if you are at all connected to WWII

15th anniversary in Paris!

by cornelison

We went to Paris in late April of 2003 for our 15th anniversary, our first-ever vacation without the kids. We stayed at the Hotel Brighton on the Rue de Rivoli, across the street from the Louvre and Tuileries. Pros- great location, OK room, OK price. Cons- hotel staff ranged from surly to downright bizzarre- I think they have Peter Lorre's long lost twin working the front desk- and while the location was great for views, somewhere on the left bank would have been better for finding places to eat and look about, especially after dark. I would recommend it just for the location, but you should have them FAX you a list of the prices per room and the floor plan of each floor, since it turns out we could have had a room one floor up, with a double balcony, that was twice the size for hafl the price.

Paris is amazing- we woke up every morning and started walking, and usually found something by accident that we enjoyed even more than what we were theoretically walking to. French-watching became a big favorite, as it apparently is to the French if you look at the placement of the tables in the cafes. One of the neatest Paris moments we had was while sitting in a cafe across the street from the Cluny, having some wine, when suddenly hundreds of people on roller blades come zooming down the street- we asked the waitress and she said this happens every Sunday afternoon. Add to this the sight of Parisian ladies in perfect suits and heels riding Razor scooters down the cobblestone streets, and these micro-cars that are quite practial given the narrow streets and even narrower parking spaces available, and watching Parisians get around is an experience in itself.

Places to eat (and not)- we really liked a small cafe on the corner of the Ile de la Cite called La Lutecia; Le Procope on the left bank is the oldest cafe in the world and had good food, gracious service, and very reasonable prices; Cafe Ruc near the Comedie Francaise was the epitome of overpriced food, miniscule portions and snotty waitstaff- and Paul got food poisoning from the Bearnaise sauce and spent two of our days in Paris stuck in the hotel room. There is also, as we found out too late, a giant food court underneath the Louvre with fast, hot food of many kinds at (for Paris) ridiculously low prices and times when it can be hard to find anything else open.

Favorite things we did- walk! Climb all the way up Notre Dame to see the gargoyles and the city below. Eat those fantastic little French strawberries from the markets. Shop at Sephora on the Champs-Elysees. Sit and stare at the Nike in the Louvre. Have lunch in the gardens of the Rodin museum. Stand in fromt of the Louvre, and you can see a long line of landmarks, from the Arc de la Carrousel to the Obelisk to the Arc de Triomphe, perfectly aligned. Walk along the Seine at night. Go up the Eiffel Tower on the very last evening, so we could look out and see all the places we had been.

Advice on going to Paris- try not to overplan. Just let the city happen to you, and it'll be amazing.

Getting to Hotel Brighton from CDG

I need some info on taking the train/bus to Hotel Brighton from CDG. Thank you for any help you can give me. Theresa in Detroit

Re: Getting to Hotel Brighton from CDG

by Jeannette1

It would help if you gave us an address or are we supposed to google it ourselves?

Re: Getting to Hotel Brighton from CDG

by tango_jd

Easy - RER train from CDG to Chatelet Les Halles then transfer to Metro Line 1 to Tulleries. (Front of Metro train will say "Defence")
Google maps now allow you to walk a "street view" so you can see your hotel and the roads around it.

Hi.. We just spent Christmas week at the Hotel Brighton. Tango_id's directions are spot on. The metro stop at Tuileries is practically across the street from the hotel. I hope you enjoy your stay there as much as we did ours.
