Lavish Luxury by the Louvre Oct 08, 2011
‘Location, location, location’ is the well-known cry from estate agents when they are justifying the steep price for any building you might want to buy or rent. In the case of Hotel du Louvre you really pay for its location because it is situated right in the heart of Paris, opposite the Louvre museum. A 25 meter walk will have you on the Louvre premises. Theatre Comedie Française is a mere 50 meters from the hotel and exiting from the main entrance you look down Avenue de L’Opéra at the magnificent Opera Garnier. But there’s more to the Hotel than just its location.

This wonderful 5-star Grand Hotel comes with a fair bit of history and more than 150 years of experience. It was built in 1855 and remained a hotel ever since. Many famous people, like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Sigmund Freud, have stayed here and the hotel suites are named after some of their former guests, such as the Pissarro suite. In fact, it was in this room that Pissarro painted his masterpiece of the opera house.

However, a review shouldn’t be a history lesson. More so an account of our own experience when staying here. And what a splendid experience we had! Check-in was swift, warm and welcoming. Our room was available on arrival. The room itself was HUGE, well for Paris anyway, with wonderful high ceilings. It was decorated in Napoleon III style and had floor-to-ceiling double-door windows overlooking Rue de Rivoli which is one of the busiest roads in Paris, lined on one side with The Louvre Museum and on the other side with world renowned brand shops. The double-door system cleverly ensured no street sounds entered the room, as long as you kept them closed.

The comfortable king size bed with multiple pillows further contributed to our decent night sleep. We also cherished the turn-down service because it allowed us to savour the rich Belgian chocolates placed on the pillow. The room lacked coffee or tea making facilities but the 24/7 room service made up for that. We could also have chosen a little snack from the mini-bar, for maxi prices.

The bathroom was light and airy, had a double sink, a bath with shower (adjustable showerhead) and a toilet separate from the bathroom. Bathrobes and slippers came with the room as well as all the toiletries one might need for refreshing after an exhausting day roaming the streets and museums of Paris.

Breakfast was included and it was the second best breakfast I ever had in my life. It’s served buffet style and offered a wide range of tasty goodies from around the world. From the Scandinavians to the Asians, everyone would find something of their liking.

Hotel staff was friendly and efficient throughout our stay, though a little formal (or should I say; very polite) at times, as one would expect in a High Class hotel. We had a little maintenance request after I messed up the curtain system, and things were taken care of almost immediately. The only thing the hotel lacks is a swimming pool, but I guess when your swimming in money, you’ll find a way around that.

Hotel du Louvre is a first class hotel, in a first class location for a first class price and if you can spare the pennies, it’s worth every single one.
