During our trip to Paris, which you can read about here, we stayed at the wonderful Hotel Brighton. The exterior was throughly decorated for the Christmas period which good us in the festive mood and then when we entered inside the huge Christmas tree in the lobby brought a smile to my face.
Located on rue de Rivoli just opposite the Tuileries Garden, and a mere 10 minutes from the Champs-Élysées, the hotel is perfectly situated for exploring Paris. You can easily walk down to the Seine too, and across to the gothic quarter if you fancy a longer stroll. So grab a map and get planning, there is SO much to see!
CLB had booked a Deluxe Room which was Georgian style with beams and traditional French doors opening out onto a small balcony overlooking Paris. It was filled with everything we’d need, Nespresso machine included, the room was perfectly formed and the bed was huge! The marble bathroom featured a traditional shower over bath, large sink and a separate loo, plus Sotheby’s toiletries which is of my favourite brands…win!
But the creme-de-la-creme…the views from the balcony and most importantly (for me!) the views of the Eiffel Tower, which was a dream come true, and rather spectacular too when it’s sparkling at night.
The hotel itself is on the smaller side, but perfectly formed. The foyer features plush sofa’s to enjoy a cup of tea, or something stronger as there’s a bar too. The staff couldn’t have been more accommodating when we asked for help or assistance in organising something.
If I returned to this city I’d definitely return to the Hotel Brighton again and will be recommending it to friends, family and colleagues.
