Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A couple of blocks from the Louvre and an easy walk to Notre Dame Cathedral

Few addresses are as convenient for visitors in Paris to visit the sites -- the Hotel Britannique is minutes from the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Metro. A central location and easy access to public transportation makes it simple and cheap to move around the city.

Along the right bank of the Seine, the 1st arrondissement is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Paris and is home to some of the city's must-see sites. A relatively small neighborhood, it is dominated by attractions such as the Louvre, and the nearby Palais-Royal and Tuileries Gardens. Tourists are always bustling through the 1st arrondissement, making it one of the city's most crowded (and most expensive) areas. But despite the crowds, the 1st Arrondissement is extremely pedestrian-friendly.
