The Hotel Riviera is a nice 3 star hotel ideally located in the heart of the 9th disctrict of Paris, near Montmartre, Pigalle and Gare du Nord and de L'est.
The hotel has 38 quiet and comfortable rooms, fully equipped with all the amenities.
the shower was broken
The basket of fruit was a very pleasant surprise, as were the friendly staff. The location is very good, in the heart of the liveliest part of Paris.
I was disappointed that there was no facility for making hot drinks in the room.
The location. metro stations are close to the hotel and the neighbourhood seemed quiet enough.
Having booked a triple room over a month earlier we were surprised to know, by the time we got there, that there wasn’t any available and that we had to stay in separated rooms. as a result, and because of the fact that we carried only one suitcase for the three of us, we had to come and go from one room to the other to get our stuff. both the rooms were tiny, had no refridgerator and the heating was so unbearable that we had to sleep leaving the balcony door opened during the night. one of the beds was so squeaky that we were awaken each time we turned around and the worst was that hair was found on the bed linen. the flush of one of the bathrooms was broken and so was the shower rail of the other bathroom. the breakfast was poor, cheap and of low quality. in fact, in the second morning it consisted of what was left from the previews morning. bad value for money. note that we were asked to pay just when we arrived! Not recommended it at all.
The customer services was good,breakfast and room service were good but the rooms were a bit small, staff were very helpful with the travelling information. l would go back again or recommend it to my family and friends.
the rooms and elevator are small
