Wonderful place within walking distance to all the main attractions. We stayed for 4 nights. The staff were amazingly helpful and provided great local insight. Near everything but also feels special on a side street. Would definitely return!

When we arrived and were led down to our room, I immediately noticed a very pungent odor. Inside our room, the odor was so overpowering (it smelled like cat urine) I asked if we could be moved to another room but they were booked. I had prepaid for the room through Hotels.com so we were in a bind. (There's a... More

The location was excellent and the reception was extremely warm and welcoming throughout. However, the suite was not suited for triple occupancy since there was no privacy in the master bedroom and the entire closet space was in the other room. Also, housekeeping insited upon leaving only one set of glassware every time they cleaned the room and we had... More

We stayed for two nights and had interconnecting rooms. The hotel is in a fantastic location near the Louvre and is small and friendly. The staff were very helpful. Best bit - the most comfortable travel cot I've ever seen in a hotel! Worst bit - the plumbing was a bit noisy.

Great location very near Louvre Museum, Notre Dame, Tour Eiffel and so many other main attractions. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. Nice breakfast although some lack of space and one has to queue depending of the hour. The rooms are spacious, clean but almost no view.

The hotel is convenient to the Louvre and other attractions and easy access to the Metro train. The staff was extremely helpful and gave us great suggestions and advice on places to go and how to get there. We were disappointed in that our room, while it did have window to the outside world, had no view as we were... More

Could not have had a better recent stay for my family of 6 than at the L'Empire. With older children and grandmother exploring Paris for the first time, the location 10mins from the Louvre, Seine, and a LOT of what Paris has to offer was awesome. Little things like nearby bistros ( for quick chgs in meal plans), pharmacy and... More

We very much enjoyed our time at the L Empire. The suite we had was spacious and allowed us to have some good chill time. The bathroom looked like it could do with some freshening, but other than that we were happy with the accommodation. Staff here were a little mixed. There were standout folks like Sonia at the front... More

The hotel staff was absolutely fabulous! Everyone bent over backwards to make sure that our visit was perfect, they even remembered our sons name and greeted him daily. While that may sound funny, it made him feel great and it was truly appreciated by us - so often children are ignored, but not here! We would definitely stay here again,... More

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
