The only two positives I could say about the L'Empire is that it is a very central location and that the staff are friendly. Otherwise, it is an overpriced hotel focussing on being funky and concept-driven rather than providing the required basics you would expect from a 4 star hotel. The room I stayed resembled a bachelor pad and the... More

Appreciated the hotel changed our booking for 3 nights to 2 nights as we had to fly home 1 week early, without hassle or cost. Thanks. We were lucky to get a room with a balcony which was great, especially as the weather was perfect for eating on the deck. Room is typical Paris size, but once you realize that... More

We stayed here awhile ago and would not recommend it. There is an odor in the hallway and the rooms. There was also no fan in the bathroom which was very strange. Cleanliness was an issue. Should be able to find something better for the same price. Looking at some of the positive reviews on this website, I get the... More

This hotel is well-situated just off rue Rivoli, near the Louvre. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was spacious, clean and well-decorated. We also enjoyed the breakfast. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

I have stayed at this hotel for the first time and I must say that I would not really recommend it for people who like to have a modern hotel. The hall that comment the rooms has a funny smell. There is no conditioning in the hall and that's why when I was there, there was one person how left... More

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
