Brilliant location, as it is situated next to the museum of Louvre and the metro and RER station. Very professional staff. We had a suite that was suitable for the whole family. Great breakfast with a bread basket being served at every table.

This is a super mid-range hotel for a short trip to Paris. We stayed for 3 days for my son’s trip for the NBA Paris 2024 game. The location is excellent - close to Chatlet Les Halles to take RER to/from CDG, beside the main Metro line for all the main sites, and in one of the best areas of the city for restaurants and shopping. Hotel itself is very clean, rooms very comfortable and staff very pleasant. Couldn’t ask for better!

Our stay at L’Empire Paris was perfect from start to finish! We were welcomed by Max at check-in who had incredible restaurant suggestions. This included Le Fumoir, where we ended up twice for dinner because the food, wine, and location two blocks away and across from The Louvre were fantastic! All the staff were warm and helpful during our stay! And, FYI, all speak English. Sonja had wonderful recommendations for shopping and treats including Gallerie Vivienne and Cookidiction. If you love the luxury brands (LV, YSL, Chanel, etc.), there’s a mall 1/2 block away! The room was beautiful, quiet and clean with comfortable beds and pillows. The walk-in shower was amazing! And breakfast was delicious and a great start for a busy day of touring. The hotel is tucked away on a quiet street, but within blocks of shopping, a lot of great restaurants, The Louvre, and the Siene River. My sister and I enjoyed our walk along the Seine so much we ended up walking all the way to the Eiffel Tower! We will definitely stay at L’Empire Paris again in the future.

I took my daughters to Paris for their first time. So many hotels to choose from. We chose this hotel based on reviews and space for all of us to have a bed. What a gem of a hotel. It’s a beautiful boutique hotel and spotless. The rooms were spacious and modern and the beds were extremely comfortable! Beautiful luxury bathrooms with towel heaters and a tub. Imagine our surprise when we opened our room window and had a gorgeous view of the Eiffel Tower! Our room came with a delicious traditional French breakfast each morning that we actually woke up for! As for the service, I wish I could give them ten stars. Every employee was delightful and eager to help us at every turn! If you are looking for a hotel with a great location, book this place!! It also has a beautiful spa.

This is the cutest most convenient centrally located hotel! The staff are absolutely wonderful. The owners should be very proud of all of them. From the front desk to the breakfast staff we liked all of them. They are so helpful and always have a smile. The rooms were clean and beds comfortable.

L'Empire is a magnificent small boutique hotel located just minutes from the Louvre, public transportation and countless nearby excellent restaurants. From the minute we arrived, the staff, especially Sonja, Johnathan and Max welcomed us and made sure every day was special. The room size was especially generous considering this property is in the heart of arrondissement 1. Free Wi-Fi and other basic amenities are provided. The daily breakfast buffet (optional) is quite satisfying and served daily in a very quaint dining room. Although lunch and dinner are not available, there was no problem finding numerous restaurants and bistros in very close walking proximity. Bravo to all the staff who made our 10-day stay truly memorable! If you're looking for a wonderful, small boutique hotel, in Paris, definitely consider L'Empire.

A wonderful surprise awaited us when we checked in. We were upgraded to their best suite. This room was great with jacuzzi tub and shower. There was a balcony and the best surprise was a hit tub on the balcony. We could not have asked for a better stay in Paris.

In the months leading up to staying at this Hotel, I was ready to write a less than upbeat review upon departure because of a deceitful credit card charge during the initial booking process (and before arriving). But. . . . in spite of this early (and significantly adverse) event, the Hotel is actually pretty good, actually, I will go as far as to say very good indeed given the location, quality and price point. Look no further. The reception staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean / well maintained and the location is extremely central / convenient to many of the major tourist attractions – including the airport railway link, around 5-10 minutes walking. Whilst the dining area is somewhat compact compared to larger hotels, it is easily forgiven with a selection of quality items on offer including fresh orange juice and barista made coffee (included in your breakfast price). I know some prior reviewers had rated the hotel poorly because of rooms overlooking an elevated courtyard area, meaning the courtyard floor is almost at window level. . . .but really, who cares, its great to have the quietness and natural light. Equally, if you decide to book a room without windows, expect that you will receive a room without windows!!! (which is actually perfect if you are a light sleeper and appreciate complete darkness – and by the way, it is not in the basement, rather these rooms are at street level) Overall, I will not hesitate to highly recommend this Hotel to anyone visiting Paris, and will indeed return ourselves when next travelling through this City. As for the early credit card charge – which the Hotel was extremely argumentative about (resolved via a credit card transaction dispute at my end), just book via a 3rd party website.

L’Empire was the perfect hotel for our family of four (2 teens 17 & 15) for our week’s stay in Paris. We had Loft 5 which comprised 2 independent secure rooms accessed via a mini hallway with its own secure external door. The teens had the really big lovely room where the bed was made into 2 singles and had the bathroom with double sinks etc -more suited to the grown ups to be honest - and the grown ups had the slightly smaller double room with its own smaller bathroom, as that bed couldn’t be changed to singles. It would have been better if the beds were the other way round but this didn’t matter hugely. The rooms were pretty quiet and street noise almost non-existent (5th storey up). The staff were exceptional -friendly, efficient, smiley and attentive. Everyone we encountered was fantastic! Breakfast was delicious and generous with lots of choices from fresh produce. Yum! Many many high quality bars and restaurants for lunches and evening meals close by with a really nice vibe. We explored every direction from the hotel and were never disappointed. Location was great -we used the train for our big journeys -easy RER B from CDG to Chatelet les Halles, and equally as easy was RER A for our day trip to Disneyland. The trains are really frequent and run till very late. I used the app Bounjour Rapt and Google Maps to find times and prices. Easy to walk to the river, museums, opera house etc etc.
