I booked this hotel for a last minute work trip to Paris as my favorite hotel was booked. I was attracted to the photographs of the L'Empire hotel on their website - offering calm, modern and clean-line rooms. Worried the website may be mis-leading, I called the hotel prior to booking to be assured that the photos properly reflected the hotel design and room available. I was assured, by telephone, email and attached photos, that indeed the photos represented the room I would be staying in for the weekend.
Instead, and contrary to the personal assurances of the hotel staff, I was checked into "the Lady Gaga Style Room" upon arrival and informed "we are fully booked and there are no other rooms available." This "Lady Gaga Style Room" was like being at the circus - a bad circus. I was forced to endure a room with black (yes black) wallpaper, mirrors at every spare space reflecting the black paper, red strips of curtain to apparantly off-set the black and mirrors, and amidst this eye color dance, a back bedboard of a grey and black harlequin pattern supporting my clown/circus surroundings.
Had it not been 11 pm I would have left. The staff moved me to another room the following day (nearly the same as the photo sent with my hotel booking confirmation) to avoid my leaving the hotel.
I will never go back. Be careful and be warned.
