Wonderful small hotel very close to The Louvre

Posted 17-Oct-2017
Pros: Location! Staff! Great breakfast, d├ęcor and comfort.
Cons: Hot water in the shower was not quite as hot as I like, however it was more than adequate and was fine for my husband - I like it very hot.
Location: A very short walk to The Louvre and gardens which was our primary interest; also an easy walk to Notre Dame, Metro stops and many restaurants nearby
From the first greeting by one of the staff as we arrived by our privately arranged shuttle (she actually came out into the street to greet us, and grabbed our bags as we climbed out of the vehicle) - till the final farewell as we left 4 days later, the staff was overwhelming friendly and helpful. We had several small issues with our room which were remedied immediately, graciously and satisfactorilly. We were made to feel as if we were the only, and the most important guests at the hotel - and I'm sure every guest was made to feel that way. Each employee spoke very fluent English which was a huge relief as we had many questions to ask as it was our first trip to Paris. Our room overlooked a courtyard, not the street, so it was quiet. The breakfast buffet was one of the best we have experienced in Europe. We would definitely stay here on a return trip.

Great Hotel right by the Louvre

Posted 17-Sep-2017
I come to Paris 2X a year for the Maison Objet trade show. I have been looking for a nice hotel near a RER blue station I highly recommend L'Empire. The staff is great , the rooms are very nice and it is in a fun neighborhood with good bistros. Walkable to many major sites: the Louvre, Notre Dame and the Marias

Cool trendy hotel in great location

Posted 23-Aug-2017
Pros: Staff! Modern accommodations in an historic area. Size of the room. Breakfast. Location.
Cons: Directions on the phone. I didn't spend much time trying to figure it out since I had a phone, but upon initial attempts, I wasn't successful.
Location: Restaurants. Louvre. Notre Dame. Hop on hop off bus (Louvre or Notre Dame pick-up). Subway. Shopping.
I initially selected the hotel because it was in a central location to things we wanted to see and it was a modern hotel with an elevator, etc. They did not disappoint. This was the last leg of our journey and the experience was fantastic. The hotel is trendy, rooms are large, bathroom is large with full amenities including a large tub, bed and pillows are comfortable, and as three females (ages 21-60), we felt safe walking around the area. The place was spotless (room and hotel). The staff was fantastic. They actually took us to our room at check-in to explain the features (including a portable phone we could use out and about or to call the US if we wanted to). The breakfast was the best we had throughout our 2 week travel experience--food and service! The staff was helpful in directing us to places in town and in getting us a very last minute ride to the airport when our flights were changed at the last minute. I left my wedding ring as we left in a huge hurry. I called, they retrieved it from my room, and were waiting for me when I had the cab turn around to come back. I was sorry we had to miss our breakfast that day due to the schedule change. The hotel is near the Louvre and Notre Dame, although a bit of a walk. The subway is a few blocks away. There are many restaurants around, my favorite being one block down (as you turn right out of the front door) called Restaurant L'Auberge du Louvre. Uber rides were easy to and from here and fairly inexpensive.

Great business hotel.

Posted 11-Jul-2017
Pros: Very well appointed room, FREE Android phone with calls and data, and friendly staff.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: 5-minute walk to the Louvre, Les Halles (shopping), local trains, subway, and buses. Also near restaurants and about 5 casual wine type bars.
Near transportation and many restaurants. Small room, but very well decorated and maintained. Had everything I needed including large screen TV, WiFi (high-speed), refrigerator, and comfortable bed. They even provided an Android phone with full features...plus FREE calls to the U.S. and Europe...plus FREE data. The hotel staff was so pleasant, it was hard to believe I was in Paris. You could stay at a big-name hotel nearby, not have the free phone, not have a room this nice, and not have a friendly staff for only a few hundred Euros more per night.
