“Perfect Location, Perfect Staff, Perfect Hotel!”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

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 helpful, friendly, attentive, personable and caring. The hotel was perfect with its boutique feel and “chic” vibe while not being pretentious and overpriced. The beds were super-comfortable and loved the bathroom! If I’m ever in Paris again, there’s no doubt where I’ll be staying. Hotel L’Empire!

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 Louvre is only another 2 minutes from there and for us with two small children, the proximity of the Jardin des Halles and its' play areas was fabulous. The rooms were more than adequate for a family of 4 and the sofa bed for our children had (unusually in our experience) a really good mattress. The breakfast was very good indeed and the service from all of the staff was of the highest standard. My only minor criticism was that the restaurant where breakfast is held is very tight in terms of space. That almost trivial point aside, we would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel and would strongly recommend it for its superb location, service and value.

Room Tip: Room 414 was a suite and accommodated our family of 4 well.

We stayed at the Empire Hotel mid February 2014 for a 3 day break. We could not have chosen a better Hotel for our first trip to Paris. The hotel is a beautiful old building, but completely modern and trendy inside. We were upgraded on checking in to Room 602 on the top floor which was superb!! walk-in rainforest shower and separate bath, Fairtrade toiletries, luxurious robes and slippers, ipod docking station, our own nespresso machine, mini bar fridge with space to chill our own drinks!! Everything you could want after spending the day walking around the city. The location - 1 block from the Louvre - is perfect for sightseeing whether on foot, or by batobus on the Seine. Also easy walking distance to metro and train stations (Chatelet les Halles is literally a 3 minute walk - we got the train to there from CDG airport). We would definitely stay here again. The staff couldnt have been more helpful, going above and beyond duty to ensure we had everything we needed. You will find cheaper hotels but in our opinion The Empire is definitely worth paying extra for.

Room Tip: Room 602 is absolutely superb, however the elevator stops at the floor below and there are some stai...

This was our first trip to Paris and it certainly exceeded our expectations. The hotel was in a fantastic location - close to everything. The only thing better than the location was the hotel staff. Without hesitation ALL the staff (but especially Sonia) - were exceptional. They were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was lovely. The rooms were clean and a nice size. The only criticism would be that the bathroom was very dark (all black tile with task lighting that did not illuminate well) - which for a woman makes makeup application a touch tricky. As well, the room was a tad warm and we could not seem to decrease the heat.
Good bang for your buck.
On our next trip to Paris (from Canada) we would definitely return to L'Emprie.

We loved the service, the nice breakfast, the comfortable beds and the location is just fantastic. In my view, l'empire has the best quality/price ratio in Paris. Went there before and will come back again.

I spent 4 days in Paris in April 2014, staying at this lovely hotel. the place is very smart will all the bits and bobs you need, including in house massages if you've had a long day out enjoying the city.

I've travelled a lot through work over the past 20 years, mostly in 5* hotels across America. the standard and friendliness over there is impeccable and these guys stood up to that and more.

The receptionists and concierge were top rate, and indeed the highlight of the already lovely place. sorting out for me some massages and dinner reservations was no problem, they help in so many ways i'm now guaranteed to book here again for my next Paris trip.

I don't normally write reviews but this one needed writing, what a marvelous place with marvelous people.

It's a 2 minute walk from the Louvre too, perfectly located to visit all the main sites and splendour Paris has to offer.

Room Tip: i had a small suite, lovely. it had a view of a small inner garden with a tree which was obviously v...

We ate dinner and had drinks in the hotel bar and had wonderful service from Mirko. Mirko was very welcoming and attentive which made for a great experience. The service was so great we came back another night that Mirko was working and received excellent service again.

We'll be recommending this hotel to our friends because of him. Thanks Mirko!
