It’s hard to find a hotel more central than the Hotel Flor Rivoli, a simple two-star sleeper located steps from the Châtelet Metro stop, half a block south of rue de Rivoli. Given the location, doubles for €110 is a great deal.
Pros: Ultra central. Clean rooms. Great value.
Cons: Plain and simple. Small rooms and elevator. Smoking is permitted.
Aside from its very reasonable rates, the Hotel Flor Rivoli’s chief selling point is its prime location, a few blocks east of the Louvre, just off rue de Rivoli’s shopping stretch and seconds from the Metro (Châtelet/Les Halles, with an RER line that goes directly to Charles de Gaulle). The Place du Châtelet and the Seine are two blocks away.
Given this location and the low rates, it should come as no surprise that things are pretty tight in the hotel. The downstairs lobby can accommodate about three people, the elevator can fit one (see photo), and the 20 guest rooms are not spacious.
However, these guest rooms are quite clean and were renovated in 2012 and still look pretty good. They’ve now got a dash of pink and purple, with new bedspreads and carpets. All rooms are equipped with a flat-paneled TV, telephone and safe. Free Wi-Fi reaches the rooms.
The private bathrooms have not been renovated recently, and sport gray tiles and hair dryers. Most are equipped with box showers, but there are some tubs available (ask ahead).
Breakfast costs a very reasonable €6. Note that smoking is permitted (or at least tolerated—we saw a few ashtrays when inspecting the rooms).
Note on booking: With this location and rates, the Flor Rivoli is frequently booked up. Try to reserve well in advance.

About the Hotel Flor Rivoli neighborhood
Located to the west of Châtelet, the area surrounding the Louvre museum is an art lover's playground. The quarter boasts grand Haussmann-style boulevards leading to the gold dome of the Opéra and the banks of the Seine. The quarter's biggest draw is the Louvre museum and the Seine-side Jardin des Tuileries.
