Nice hotel within walking distance of Louvre

5 out of 5
by from Essex, England
Posted Feb 22, 2017
Very friendly and helpful staff. Room was of a good size and well maintained - it was a shame there were no tea or coffee making facilities though. We didn't have the buffet breakfast as we felt it was too expensive - there are plenty of places near to the hotel that do breakfast at a cheaper price. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay in Paris - within walking distance of Louvre, Seine and manyother sites. The metro is near by as well so well placed for sight seeing.

Cozy hotel in Central Paris

5 out of 5
by from Houston, TX
Posted Feb 5, 2017
Pros: Central location, friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms, free smart phone, strong wifi
Cons: Adding a door or shower curtain to the shower so it doesn't flood the bathroom.
Location: Central location, several nearby underground stations, plenty of restaurants and shopping. Caves de Lourve wine tasting next door is a must.
L'Empire was such a wonderful place to stay. Upon arrival we were greeted so kindly, and they acknowledged that I booked through expedia. However, we did not receive any additional Gold +VIP amenities. We booked a superior room, which was clean and much more spacious than expected. It had a large vanity, towel warmer, and rainfall shower head. The shower did not have any kind of door or curtain so every time we showered the floor developed a large puddle. The bed was fairly soft and comfortable, firm beds seem to be a common thing in Europe. The location of the hotel is just unbeatable and makes it totally worth the price! We were able to walk to the front of the Lourve in about 8 minutes. There are 2 major underground station within a 5 min walk which is essential for cheap and easy traveling around Paris. Notre Dame was about a 15 min walk and there are plenty of places to go shopping nearby. Because this is such a central location most of the restaurants and shops around the area do speak some English and many have menus in English as well. We did not pay for breakfast at the hotel, there are plenty of cafes and creperies nearby to try out. A brilliant bonus was the hotel providing a free smart phone with unlimited international calls and data, it became so useful for using GPS, booking tickets, and finding restaurants to try. Overall this was a wonderful place to stay, and if we ever return to Paris I know what hotel I would stay at!

Great Place

5 out of 5
by from Owego, NY
Posted Jan 19, 2017
Pros: We really enjoyed the location, the comfortable beds, large rooms, and friendly staff.
Cons: Our refridgerater did not work, and there was only one espresso cup in our room to share, other than that it was a great experience.
Location: In a great part of town, lots of cafes, shops. L'Fiume Restaurant was excellent.
We were promptly welcomed by staff, our room was ready, and were upgraded to a larger room. The room was clean, and very spacious. The hotel staff was great about helping us navigate around the city. I highly recommend staying at the L'Empire.

Nice and clean hotel. 5 mins walk to Louvre Museum

5 out of 5
by from New Jersey, USA
Posted Aug 24, 2016
Pros: Friendly and helpful receptionist esp. Sonia. Thank you! Delicious buffet breakfast.
Location: Great location. Safe neighborhood. Close to Metro and popular Paris attractions.
We arrived in the morning around 8:45a.m and our room weren't ready till 3p.m. So we left our luggages with the hotel receptionist and asked for directions to the Louvre. Sonia showed us the way and taught us a few helpful French greetings/phrases. Overall, a great location to most museum and attractions. Lots of restaurants nearby. Metro and public transportations are within walking distance. Highly recommended!

Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
Location: its near the center of paris, in an area well populated by muggers, pickpockets and knife murderers. at least the loud sirens at night will help you
nothing like what it looks like with surly staff and a terrible experience

Huge room for Paris

5 out of 5
by from Barcelona
Posted Jun 5, 2016
What a great hotel. I've stayed in Paris many times but this is the first time for such a huge room. The facilities are great and the breakfast excellent (if. You're expecting a huge American buffet though you'll be disappointed). Just some minor inconsistency require attention 1) The turn down service only happened twice during our 5 days 2) coffee pod replacement only happened twice too.

Nice hotel close to Louvre

4 out of 5
by from Malaysia
Posted May 9, 2016
Pros: Location, Location, Location
Cons: It would be good if they can provide an electronic kettle in the room
Location: Louvre Museum, Notre Dame, Opera House, Galleries Lafayette
Room condition is good and the size of the room is big. Receptionist are very friendly. What I like the most was they provided a cellphone with unlimited data that we can bring it with us so we don't have to buy a local sim card to use google maps and other apps. Breakfast was great too. Definitely will recommend this hotel to my friends who plan to go Paris.

Well located base for exploring Paris.

3 out of 5
Posted May 6, 2016
Pros: Location.
Cons: Smoking policy. Expedia VIP upgrade.
Overall, we found our experience at the hotel to be good. While the street that the hotel is located on is not very attractive, it does provide a great base for exploring Paris. Overall, the hotel was comfortable while not being luxurious. Rooms were of a good size, especially for Paris. They were generally quiet, though you would hear hallway and courtyard noise. Some of the negatives about the experience: The room that we were offered at check-in was not the one described on the Expedia website; I am a Gold + member and no upgrade was offer at check-in, even though the hotel did not appear to be full; The neighbors were smoking and it found its way into our room. This is supposed to be a non-smoking hotel. I mentioned this to the front desk and nothing was done about it.
