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!
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.
bonjour, chase in the window! ^^
view right out our window! (i know my version of this view
is less exciting than chase’s shown above, but still amazing! ;)
the cozy lobby is a lovely escape right off the busy street.
taner 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!
an 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!
charming hotel entrance as you walk toward notre-dame!
this just became our normal walking home view for a few days! ^^
i loved staying just steps from the seine. it allowed us to enjoy it all hours of the day.
the hot parisian days were made worth it with these dusky summer nights ^^
gorgeous in any light, and it made it easy to find our hotel!
we 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! :)
and 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.
