0.55km from Del Burgo SARLHotel France Louvre is located on Rue de Rivoli, right near Hotel de Ville and its metro stop, an easy walk from Isle de la Cite and a slightly longer walk from Louvre. It is surrounded by restaurants, shopping malls, small museums, and local food shops. A few blocks away is a great church which has concerts. Tour de St. Jacques is in the opposite direction. We stayed there during the metro strike in December, so, lacking easy transit to the outer arrondisements, we spent more time in the neighborhood of the hotel than we usually do when we travel, and found enough to do within walking distance. The street was quiet even on New Year's Eve, so at night, after the shops close, there's no problem with street noise. On Saturday, there was a fresh food market event across the street. It was great. We wished it were open every day. The elevator is very small, but reliable and quick. Breakfast is served in the cellar for 12 euro per person, but I don't recommend the breakfast. There are plenty of places to eat within a block. Our room was small and needed repainting, but we were happy with it. The bed was comfortable, room service came every day, the shower produced hot water (although it doesn't have a closeable door, which we Americans like but many Europeans don't care about), the TV worked, the windows opened, and there were enough electric outlets (we brought a power strip but didn't need it). The toilet flushed with enough water pressure. The corridors are very narrow outside the rooms, but it isn't so crowded that this is a problem. Front desk staff all spoke good English. There was a Vietnamese girl named Van whom we really liked, and the manager was also pleasant. We never felt unsafe in the neighborhood. I don't recommend the Boulangerie or the Bagel shop the next block over. The Boulangerie has tasty food, but it didn't agree with my stomach. The bagel shop has good decor but mediocre food. If you walk up the street past them to the left, there are a lot of Asian restaurants. The Hotel de Ville pharmacy right near the boulangerie is good. The following attractions are a few too far to walk to from Rue de Rivoli unless you are young and athletic: Tour Eiffel, Arc de Triomphe, Catacombs.
