“Ok for a hotel in central Paris”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

Our room was an ok size, though the bed was pretty close to the wall. The mattress was alright, and the front desk staff was helpful. The bathroom was tiny, and the room seemed a little run down. The elevator was super small - fit one person and bags or two people with no bags, and the stairs were a little narrow at parts. Overall, it was a good location for a decent price, and our stay was satisfactory.

I stayed here in October of 2013 and it was the absolute perfect location to the Eifel Tower. The staff at the front desk were wonderful and polite. However, the folks at the breakfast room was a little bit rude. But I can recommend this place for its location. You can walk to many historic places in Paris. The price I would say could be a little lower comparing to what it really offers. Room is small, no ironing boards or iron but comfortable if you are not looking for more luxurious settings.

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
