Stayed here for about 10 days at the beginning of August 2014. Had two rooms for a family of four- one room being handicap accessible. The handicap room had a great deal of space to manage two wheelchairs and to maneuver around the bathroom. The shower is a roll in and the hotel staff provide a shower chair that attaches... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon & it was just divine. The staff upon arrival could see we were extremely tired and allowed us an early check-in. The rooms are quite small but given the location & luxurious comfort of the bed you wouldn't even think about it. Would definitely stay again! Hotel staff went over & above with helping... More

Look, l try to write fair reviews and to do them not in an angry state, which clouds ones view of the total operation of a hotel. L' Empire is like all hotels that advertise rooms but in doing so show a competition of other rooms so you're not really sure what you're getting. We booked a room which on... More

I often complain about hotels who put form over function such as bathrooms that have all the "cool" fixtures but in which you cannot bathe. L'Empire has none of this. It's got the coolness, certainly, but without compromising the functionality Our room as a "deluxe" double and it was the most spacious room I've had in Europe in years, even... More

We chose this hotel as they have facilities for people with mobility issues. We were not disappointed. This lovely little hotel catered to my needs . The room was on the main level,spacious with an easy access shower. It was beautifully clean and well appointed. Despite being in the center of everything the room was peaceful and quiet, overlooking a... More

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

We arrived in Paris off the Chunnel on a Sunday afternoon and had no problem getting from Gare du Nord to the Empire Hotel. I had read mixed reviews so I was cautiously optimistice. We were in Paris as a family (two children – girls 11 and 9) and I wanted one room for the 4 of us. I had... 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
