My partner booked this hotel as a suprise for my birthday. I was very pleased with the service from all the staff and they were very helpful. The location of the hotel is excellent and very pretty. We were able to access different locations very easy. The hotel rooms are small but this just adds to the character of the hotel. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend to anyone

On New Year's eve we arrived at 19.00 to our hotel that we had reserved in July. A romantic stay for one night to celebrate the turn to the new year a few steps away from the Eiffel tour. However we were welcomed with the news that the hotel was overbooked and they had an alternative option for us in the same class but much further away. We didn't accept that and we entered into a long conversation and "we want to speak to you manager . . . " till they accepted us. Thereafter we had a comfortable stay, a splendid New Year celebration under the Eiffel tower and good breakfast before to travel on.

However I can recommend the hotel as hopefully this was a one time event. My negative judgement about the services was based on this enervating and unfortunate experience.

Located in the back streets of Paris a stones throw away from the Eiffel Tower. Room and bathroom were very clean and the staff were very friendly. Would use again and would recommend to other travelers.

I stayed in this hotel during 2 nights and it was pleasant. The staff was helpful and sweet even if i was completely lost in Paris... The eiffel tower is amasing and i was so close with this hotel. The room a little bit small was clean and nice. I wish i will be back soon !
I recommand this hotel if you like warm and cosy place.

Great location and reasonable price. We stayed only 1 night. Extremely friendly staff and clean rooms. Our room was very, very small - it is definitely not suitable for people larger than XS or S. The breakfast was really nice. We were very happy because I am a "Eiffel Tower fan" (or even a maniac) and were able to get this tiny room which has a view of the tower. I don't know how if any other room has the view and if it is bigger. Anyways, if you are on a tight budget and have been dreaming for the Eiffel Tower then definitely stay at Rive Gauche hotel. (Please, if you are not obsessed with the tower don't request this room since it is ridiculously small and uncomfortable). If you have trouble sleeping (!): the walls are extremely thin - you hear everything everywhere - I walk up because the people next room were talking (the weren't loud, just a normal conversation) and I could hear every word

Room Tip: Paper thin walls Possibility for Eiffel Tower room view for real Paris fans

Dear Guest,

First of all, thank you for sharing your opinion on our TripAdvisor page!

We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay with us. Indeed, our rooms with a view on the Tower can seem small. They are situated on the 3rd and 4th floor in our establishment which involves a smaller surface than our rooms on the lower floors.
We also have rooms with bath (according availabilities) that you can request when you book. These rooms are a bigger and equipped with a bath instead of a shower.

Finally, we are ideally situated 10 minutes away from the Eiffel Tower, which implies that you only have a few steps to do to reach the real Iron Lady.

Looking forward to receiving you at the occasion of another trip, don't hesitate to book and request the room you enjoyed, we would be please to make you take benefit of our best offer.

Best regards

This hotel was excellent in terms of location and price. Having stayed in hotels in Europe before I was prepared for a tiny room (We stayed at a lovely hotel in Rome last year that was much, much smaller). We had room 320 on the street (We asked for an Eiffel Tower room, but was told there were none left). We stayed 5 nights, we did not take the Breakfast as the location was so close to everything that we did not need it. We would stay here next time we are in Paris for sure. Everything I read on this site before we left was true, however I feel you need to have a more flexible attitude when travelling outside of North America. Were the rooms small? Yes, but still big enough. The bathroom was tiny, but very newly renovated and beautiful, tiny Elevator - yes, but we only used it once at check in. Stairs are tiny and winding, yes but it's Europe so this is normal. The street is a small quaint side street so not a lot of traffic noise, however this is a major city so there was noise each day. I live in the Suburbs and I went to Paris for a different experience than I have at home, my husband and I loved it. If you want to stay where Parisian real life is all around you, this is fantastic. The walk to the Bus (#69 takes you right past everything you need Lourve, Musee D'Orsay and Notre Dame) is so close - take it and enjoy your time participating in Paris life, it was very safe. The walk to the RER was also so close (Versailles or the Airport), the walk to the Eiffel Tower could not be any closer. I just couldn't say enough wonderful things about our time at this Little Hotel and it's perfect location. We can't wait to go back. Note - I have stayed in Paris once before, at a 5 star high rise hotel. Lovely large rooms that could of been anywhere in the world like Chicago, or Dallas, amongst other high end large business traveller hotels - not the same experience at all. I loved the location and feel of this little hotel so much better - and the price!

Room Tip: I liked our room #320, but I still would of preferred a room with an Eiffel Tower room. I did see t...

My friends and I went there a few years ago. From what I remember, it was an okay hotel. The rooms were not the best but it was all right for our needs. It met our expectations. We always had great nights rest. The location was excellent and we had a great view of the Eiffel tower. Service wise it was adequate.
