We picked this hotel because of its convenient location and the ease of transport from the 2 major airports, as it was a very short trip and we arrived at one airport and left from the other. Located a few blocks from the Hotel de Ville, it was a super easy walk to Notre Dame, the Louvre, the Latin Quater,... More

My wife and I, on vacation, stayed for 5 nights before venturing to the south of France, in mid June 2014. Super location on a side street near The Louvre. Walking distance to Notre Dame Cathedral and nearby museums. Many charming sidewalk cafes, bars and bistros nearby. Terrific neighborhood! The rooms are newly renovated and much larger than the typical... More

Our family stayed at L'Empire for 4 days. It is located very near the Louvre and Rue Rivoli. The rooms have been renovated this year and they are comfortable and attractive with large bathrooms and modern decor. Breakfast was included and was delicious. There are many nice restaurants and bistros within a short walk. A draw for L'Empire is the... More

The best part about the hotel is it's location. It's close to most of the tourist attraction in Paris. There are lots of restaurants around it, there are a couple of convenient stores next to eat. And a laundry mat behind it. The exterior part of hotel, it's an old building so there is some charm. Inside is ok. Nothing... More

What a fantastic location! Just on a quaint side street just off Rue de Rivoli, this modern property offered the best of both worlds. The hotel staff always very friendly and professional. It was so refreshing to have the reception staff remember your name and greet you with a smile. These are the small details that make the difference. Rooms... More

The staff were very friendly, always willing to help with advise on attractions and travelling through Paris. We arrived very early on the Saturday, but they were very welcoming, checked us in and stored our bags until... More
