Hotel Brighton - Esprit de France
Ranked #151 of 1,804 Hotels in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 October 2009

A fine hotel. The staff were very nice and helpful. They spoke English very well. It was a little expensive, but what do you expect from a good hotel in Paris. I liked the fact that they had internet in the parlor, so I could check my email. It was about 3-4 minutes from the Louvre, right on the street. I liked the fact it was right down the street from Angelina's. (The best hot chocolate!) The television had only one English station, CNN. The bathroom was roomy and had a great bathtub, a nice shower, two sinks and a water closet (toilet). We had a room in the back and it was quiet.

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor about this hotel...they were all true! The Hotel
Brighton is in the perfect location for Paris, in walking distance to everything. It is right across from the Louve and the Tulleries Jardin which you can walk to everything. Staff is courteous and delightful. Some front desk staff was not as helpful or friendly as others. We got to know right away who you could asks questions. But all provided good insights. The beds were great and try to get the breakfast included with your stay...its an easy way to start your long day of sightseeing. The city is magnificent and this hotel was excellent! Our only complaint was the lack of towels and their quality. But if you're looking for a great place in Paris -- stay here!

My wife and I stayed 4 nights in Brighton. We booked it via booking.com. and I was a bit afraid of getting inferior treatment because of that. In contrary, we were upgraded to a room with a fabulous view at Louvre and the Tuileries garden. The room was large even by the US standards, very clean, and had the old French charm. The bathroom had a separate shower and bath, and was spacious as well. The staff was very friendly and spoke English. The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring Paris by foot. I would highly recommend the hotel. While on some some sites it is rated as 3 stars, it is definitely qualifies for 4- 4.5 stars, in my opinion.

This hotel was fabulous. Wonderful location, helpful staff, and perfectly appointed and clean rooms. The rooms are big for Paris, and beautifully designed. I was traveling with my mom and both of us have been to Paris many times before and this is without question the best hotel we've stayed in. Stay here and you won't be disappointed!

brughton is very well located, and the rooms are above average for the pricepoint.

i definitely recommend this hotel

I love the Brighton. I am a travel agent and have personally stayed there at least 5 times and in all seasons, as well as before and after the renovation.
I have sent many clients there and ALL have loved it and been completely satisfied with their stay and many have returned numerous times as have I.
It is very centrally located and charming. I almost didn't write this because I didn't want my little secret to be known to others but this hotel deserves praise.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Brighton for an entire week and were very satisfied with our stay. The English-speaking staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean (with the exception of a leaking air conditioning unit), and the bathroom was also clean and comfortable. The tv had English-speaking channels, which was nice (my husband is an avid CNN viewer). Breakfast was not included, and for the expensive price, it is NOT worth it to dine at the hotel. In general, the stores on Rue du Rivoli, where the hotel is located are tourist traps (sub-quality, over-priced products/food), so avoid patronizing them at all costs. The best part about the hotel is it's superb location. It's located immediately in front of the Tuileries Gardens and a short walk away from the Louvre. The Metro is right across the street, making it quite accessible to other sights. I would definitely stay here again.
