This was our hotel for our first trip to Paris. Great location with the metro entrance merely a half block away. Once you figure out which lines to ride, you can visit the Louvre, Eiffel Tower and Versailles all from this location. The Hotel is very nice and the staff is very accomodating and friendly. The room was small for 3 people, but adequate. Nicely decorated with a good functional bathroom. The hotel restaurant is expensive and not that impressive. 13E for 2 eggs with nothing else was dissappointing. Of course the Arc d Triomphe is at the end of the block and stunning. I would recommend this Hotel.

This is my second stay at napoleon hotel. I stayed two years ago it was Ok but the hotel was really old. Now they made the necessary renovations and the hotel looks perfect with the new design. Location is perfect. The staff is really accommodating and acceptable breakfast. Our room had a very small balcony but we enjoyed our teas watching beautiful paris view.

Very nice hotel in a fantastic location for tourists. Cant fault it except for the prices of food and drink. If I were to go to Paris again I would look to stay in a boutique hotel in the old part of Paris (near Notre Dame), much more our scene.

This hotel some 100m from the Arc de Triomphe is an absolute delight. Not your chain hotel, this family owned hotel has played host to such people as Cary Grant, Josephine Baker and myself to name just a few. It is located only a block from the Champs de Élysées, continues to Boulevard Haussmann and is really easy to walk anywhere. The decor and facilities are first rate, and being more boutique hotel it has a warm and inviting atmosphere. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting an authentic Parisian stay.
Oh and the best bed I have ever slept in!

I only stayed at this hotel for one night,visiting Paris on business.
I can say that the Napoleon will probably become one of my favourite places because of location and the decor.
It's small and recently refurbished. The rooms are quite small (normal for Paris) but with a refined taste.
I enjoyed breakfast and even had a drink at the bar.
What is most appreciated is the friendly service and the close proximity to L'Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysees.
Try it.

We stayed here in February 2013 for about 5 days. The Hotel was very well situated close to the Champs Elysees and the Arc De Triomphe. The hotel itself was lovely, from when we first walked the decor and ambience was warm and inviting and the service was good. Our room was very nice and spacious and the bed was really comfortable. The bathroom was a little on the small size and the shower wasn't the best if I was being picky but we managed. On our arrival we were tired and hungry so decided to eat in the Hotel Brasserie which was nice but nothing special really. I had a chicken club sandwich which set me back 20 euros but this seems to be the going rate in Paris, it is very expensive! All in all we really enjoyed our stay at this Hotel and I would recommend it to other travellers.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Behind the history of the hotel, hides a love story.... The love story between a rich Russian businessman, Alexander Pavlovich Kliaguine, and a young french student who first met at a "literature salon" in 1928. It was love at first sight. In order to introduce her to Parisian "high society" at the time, he bought a hotel in the prestigious 8th arrondissement and gave it to her as a wedding present. Still today the hotel belongs to the Kliaguine family. Today, following a large renovation program, the hotel is proud to announce its 5th star. With its unique location, just a short walk away from the Champs-Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe, the Hotel Napoleon is one of the most legendary hotels of the city: a fine address to discover and rediscover. Our 52 rooms and 50 Suites are all designed in the Empire style with newly refurbished and modernized colors. A Parisian atmosphere still remains in the Hotel. The Napoleon includes also a Bar- Restaurant: the Bivouac Cafe, 8 meeting spaces and a fitness room. ... more   less
