Excellent Boutique HotelPosted Sep 5, 2014
Pros: The decor is modern and chic, and the room sizes are generous for Europe. The staff service was about as good as it gets.
Location: We were within a block or two of the Louvre and within easy walking distance of Notre Dame, the Seine, Orsay Gallery and the metro.
This was our first trip to Paris and we wanted to stay close to the main attractions. The staff was extremely responsive and went out of their way to be helpful. As English speakers knowing only some French, we relied heavily on the staff to give us advice and they excelled at this.

Excellent location, couldn't ask for more. Rooms are small but very comfortable. I will stay at L'empire again!

Hotel staff and breakfast were excellent. view of courtyard was pretty uninspiring but no view was advertised. Room was clean and functional wifi worked well. overall room was as advertised. Location to Louve and Notre Dame excellent.

Very disappointingPosted Aug 8, 2014
The hotel is in a great location. However, the room was very disappointing. When I made the reservation I specifically stated that I had five in my party... 3 adults and 2 kids (teenagers). The room was equipped with a king sized bed and a sofa sleeper. They brought in a roll away bed that did not fit in the room and charged us an additional $100 a night for the roll away (we didn't find out about the extra charge until we checked out on our third day.) The sofa sleeper had a huge blood stain on it and when I went to the front desk to ask for an additional duvet or a new mattress I was told they didn't have any. They gave me an extra sheet instead. In the end we paid over $1000 a night for a one bedroom, one bathroom suite, when we could have reserved two separate rooms for the same price. Needless to stay I would not recommend this hotel and I'm extremely upset about the additional charges that popped up unexpectedly at check out.

Welcome to the 90s!Posted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: Location was great, if you like people shouting outside your window at 3am or police sirens at all hours.
When you check into the L Empire, you are welcomed back to the 90s, both in decor, staff surliness & experience. but at least the rooms are shabby, the staff rude & the place somewhere i'd not recommend to my worst enemy.

Great boutique hotel in fantastic locationPosted Jul 9, 2014
Pros: Good service, facilities, food and location.
Cons: Could not fault the hotel - it was simply excellent in all aspects.
Location: Close to Louvre and Centre Pompidou. Train and bus transport very close by. Lots of good eating options in close proximity.
Stayed at L'Empire for 1 week in July 2104. Found rooms were relatively large and in very good condition. The hotel location is very central with good access to transport. Hotel service was exceptional, with staff eager to help with suggestions on things to do and see. Breakfast was included within my room package and was superb. Room came equipped with a coffee machine which was far superior to the instant coffee found in most other hotels.
