20 Avenue Victoria,
Paris, IL, FR 75001
Advantage: fabulous, almost unbeatable location; wonderful history and atmosphere; reasonably priced.
Disadvantage: rooms are small (although not unusually so for Paris); the elevator is tiny (again, rather common); central location, one block from the Seine River and near Les Halles, Notre Dame and Le Louvre; metro stop is a few steps from the hotel.
There is a pastry shop, several restaurants, retail stores, a grocery and a cash machine nearby.
The main reason to stay at the Hotel Britannique is its prime location in the center of Paris. It lies in a short walk to some of Paris' major attractions and neighborhoods.
There is a lovely sitting room downstairs, with wi-fi Internet access available for a fee. The guests may also enjoy a comfortable dining area with a hearty breakfast served each morning. There are complimentary umbrellas in the lobby (a nice especially in this city, where a rainstorm can strike at any moment).
The only drawback of this hotel is the little size of the standard rooms and the elevator. The whole family and a bunch of luggage will never be hauled in one trip up the lift. Though there are many hotels in Paris with bigger rooms, you'll pay a lot more.
Britannique Hotel is the ideal place for a couple traveling to Paris on a budget. A couple may take advantage of the location to explore Paris on foot.
The hotel is a boutique hotel just in few steps from the Louvre, Notre Dame, bank of the Seine, Pompidou Cultural Center, theaters, and the Latin Quarter. The place is a 19th century mansion, built by an English family, and offers the style of a bygone era with modern touches, old-fashioned rooms, and daily buffet breakfast. The hotel staff caters personalized services unavailable at large chain hotels. (Note, no air conditioning).
