Home Away From Home: Hotel Trianon Rive Gauche Paris

Hotel Trianon Rive Gauche located just steps from the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg, or the Luxembourg Garden 6th arrondissement of Paris also known as the Saint-Germain-des-Pres and the Latin Quarter. A charming boutique with only 110 rooms just a short 5-minute walk from the train and metro station.

We couldn’t have chosen a better hotel for our seven-day escape to Paris we were close to cafes, restaurants, and shopping. The area was very safe and quiet with a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower depending on your suite. We choose a king suite with a balcony on the second floor. The staff was wonderful from the day we checked in until the morning we checked out. Our stay was very comfortable and quiet although we had to adapt to a few things. Our suite was perfect for us, but smaller than usual which is normal for hotels in Paris we loved having a balcony.

The elevator was very small so we decided to take the stairs. The lobby was well decorated, but small it contains the business center, a couple of chairs, and couches for guest to lounge. There is a nice size breakfast area that also contains several wine refrigerators and other adult beverages during their stay. Breakfast was prepared and served each morning the sausage, fresh squeezed orange juice, and the cappuccino machine was a hit. In the evenings there was a dessert and beverage display available for guest to indulge on local pastries made fresh from a bakery not far from the hotel. I know many of you are wondering about the wifi connections during our stay we didn’t experience any issues, with that said I recommend bringing your firestick in Paris CNN is the only English channel.

One evening after a long day of sight-seeing my fiance and I celebrated our wedding engagement earlier that day he proposed to me at the Eiffel Tower. I purchased champagne from the front desk and we enjoyed the evening with a glass of champagne. The breeze was perfect off the balcony a perfect night for us. For seven days we made Hotel Trianon Rive Gauche Paris our home away from home. Please visit hotels website for a list of special offers that included breakfast without prepaying. I recommend this location to anyone visiting Paris for the first time or returning it is a great location and very convenient when trying to get around and sightsee or just kick back and relax.
