In spite of having received different information over email and phone this hotel charged us three nights for a trip cancelled more than 50 hours before check in with free cancellation policy until two days before. We had been looking forward to a romantic break in l'Empire for a long time. When my husband was diagnosed with pneumonia just before,... More

Very good location right inside in the heart of the great shopping street in Paris rue de Rivoli as well as close to the Louvre. Staff was really nice and helpful when required. We recommend that hotel for your stay in Paris.

I had spent a weekend in Paris and picked this hotel as most Parisian hotels are small in size and the challenges I have had as a fairly sized bloke is the size of the bathrooms and showers. Since I did not have much information, I went ahead and booked in due to its proximity to Lourve and also shopping... More

Firstly I have to say that although I didn't give this hotel 5 stars, it really is lovely and I would definitely go back. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the nearby train station (I forget the name) roughly around 10-15 minutes. It is located on a pretty little side street that was relatively quiet, although on the... More

In mid December we stayed 3 nights at L'Empire. It's in a great location, only moments walk from the Louvre, lovely restaurants, shopping and transport. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the hotel we found to be very quiet at night.The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We are a family of 5 and had interconnecting rooms, which...

Just loved my 3 night stay in mid December. Great location - shops, restaurants, etc right on the door. Everyone I dealt with working there could not have been nicer - I even got some fashion advise for what to where when meeting up with my local friends :) My room was gorgeous, clean and quiet - huge comfortable bed....

My partner and i spent 4 days at L 'Empire. From the moment we arrived we loved it. The staff were friendly, spoke great English and super helpful. The rooms are lovely and clean with modern amenities. It is walking distance to The Louvre, Notre Dame and train stations. Highly recommend, i will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here during September weekend, to be honest we didn't spend much time in the hotel but the little time we did it was a delight. The deluxe room was very large and spacious, with excellent décor and top facilities including Jacuzzi bath. The views from the rooms are not great, but its less than a minutes walk to... More

I've stayed at L'Empire before and that's why I went back. I wasn't disappointed. It's literally within hopping distance (just yards, although not recommended with a suitcase), from the Rue de Rivoli. If you prefer to walk, it's very near the Louvre, Les Halles, the Pont Neuf; also the Louvre-Rivoli, Chatelet and Les Halles Metro stations, as well as numerous... 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.
