I visited in July, which meant the noisy large air conditioner was useful. I had a cheap room in the eves of the building on the fourth floor. Access was via the enclosed garden and through a wedding reception then up an old lift. I was not given an option to drop off my bags so I had to leave... More

The hotel has an excellent location. Right in the city centre, close by parking (2 min away). Free wifi, that works everywhere in the hotel. BUT uncomfortable beds, dirty rooms, uncomfortable showers ( at least on the 3rd floor) my husband who is not that tall (1m80cm) could not fit into shower in room 311. Conditioner was leaking and the... More

We stayed only one night en route elsewhere, it happened to be the eve of the national holiday on 14th July - the hotel restaurant was already fully booked. The reception staff were friendly and very helpful and suggested where we would be able to find good restaurants open even though there was a party & picnic going on in... More

Although we preferred the hotel in the early days, it still is a classic with good value for money. Nicely decorated rooms, very empire. Service is excellent. Breakfast is greta. Layout bathroom is not so good.

This hotel desires better scores than whatever bad written previously. We have stayed 3 nights, our room had a good space for 3* accommodation with the big bathroom. Usual attributes: coffee-maker, TV, Mini Bar, Land Line phone etc. All was clean! Another value was an absolutely friendly staff! The hotel has the old fashion but I think a beautiful design...

I stayed here while attending an INSEAD course. The room is small but decent, and with a comfy bed and bathroom. It is conveniently located and in a beautiful building. The internet connection was often not properly working, which created issues to me and the other guests. Not sure I would stay there again.

Facilities in remarkably poor condition. Bathroom tiles broken, dirty. Fungus in shower -in the tub- screen etc. Woodwork/ paint dirty and chipped. Room extremely small and so are the beds that measure 190 cms, if that. Avoid this hotel if you are over 180 cms/6 ft tall. We were forced to switch hotels as it was impossible to sleep. Incredibly,... More

We returned our car to Fontainebleau to avoid Paris traffic as we had all the next day to get to CDG airport. The hotel was easy to find and in the same street as our car hire so that was certainly what we were looking for. It is conveniently placed in the town centre surrounded by cafes, restaurants and shops... More

Well located in the center of Fontainebleau, the hotel napoleon has a fairly good and genuinely helpful staff. However that it is. I was put in a remote room that I had to access thru the hotel courtyard, and go up a tiny elevator, the room was smaller than the average, reminiscent of Parisian hotels, where every inch is worth...

We stayed at The Napoleon Hotel for one night. Reception staff were extremely helpful and friendly and spoke excellent English. Hotel offers a discounted rate at the nearby secure underground parking (Parking Napoleon) and the hotel can add the charge to your final bill. The hotel is in a very good spot, only minutes from the Chateau and easy to... More
