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

Stayed at the L'Empire Hotel in May 2014. Firstly the interior design of the hotel was stunning, very modern with attention to detail. 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

Are you tired of tiny hotel rooms in Paris, linguistic mix ups with hotel staff, tiny elevators that takes 1 person at a time while making death rattles, and "quaint" bathrooms that only a yoga master finds comfortable? Then this is the hotel for you. It's modern, with great bathrooms, huge beds, friendly staff, and most importantly nespresso machines in... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the generous size of a deluxe room, complete with king-size bed. The staff were very helpful, breakfast was better than expected. Best of all is the location; just a short walk to the Louvre, metro, etc.

I took my mom to Paris for Mother’s Day and wanted to ensure the trip was as close to perfect as possible. Our stay at the L’Empire was the icing on the cake! The location was perfect with walking distance to restaurants, shopping and tourists attractions (the Louvre is a couple of blocks away). The staff was perfect by being... More

Booked a last minute three night break and this hotel was one of the few choices available. I am not sure we would have booked it had there been greater numbers of other options, however the restricted choice turned out to be a blessing. The central location is first class. The Louvre-Rivoli metro station is a two minute walk, the... More
