check in: hôtel les rives de notre dame


before i say anything about our charming little room with a view
in paris, let’s just have chase’s drone do the talking ::

so… that was the hôtel les rives de notre dame, and need i say more
about the location? it is found on quai saint-michel, right in front
of notre-dame and overlooking the seine. it’s everything you’d want
in a paris hotel + experience, and the rooms are even good-sized!
hotel les rives2
paris has a lot of high-end luxury chain hotels, but i think visitors miss
out by staying in these. it’s all about the small, french, boutique hotels
if you want the true authentic experience! this is my new go-to hotel here.
chase-parisbonjour, chase in the window! ^^
IMG_9360view right out our window! (i know my version of this view
is less exciting than chase’s shown above, but still amazing! ;)
IMG_9329the cozy lobby is a lovely escape right off the busy street.
hotel les rivestaner runs the hotel in the most personal way and became our fast friend!
he showed us the hotel’s APP which allows for check-in, offline maps,
restaurant recommendations, apps, and all other info you’d need. genius!
hotel les rives4an ideal french breakfast is served daily, and trust me – it is spot on.
they get the best croissants in town. i had a few too many each morning!

IMG_9495we were also located right by saint-germain-des-prés and the
latin quarter, so we wandered them many late nights and got
a few gyros for a break from all the croque-monsieurs! :)

IMG_9538 IMG_9688and one more bonus of this hotel = big windows for drone flying!
though i think chase might be the only person to take advantage of that ;)

thank you to hôtel les rives de notre dame for welcoming us!
we’ll remember this stay forever.

    That drone is SO cool — the footage is beautiful!! Jacksgap on Youtube did something similar for his travels to the Philippines and it was so fascinating. Getting a chance to see Paris in a way that I’ll probably never be able to is amazing.

    Also, that hotel is so cute!! Views are everything, especially while traveling!

    Yep…and just when I thought I couldn’t want to visit anywhere more than Amsterdam, you have me longing for another trip to Paris. This place looks so unbelievably Parisian it hurts. I love Chase’s near-heart attack when he’s landing the drone. I can’t even imagine the stress of flying that thing!
