Look no further, book this hotel

Pros: The staff and location.
Cons: The building is old and space is at a premium. Not much could be changed, just something to keep in mind. It added to the charm of our trip though.
Location: The location was perfect. Walking distance to everything. Felt very safe and the area had activity but was not overwhelming.
L'Empire Paris is a nice boutique hotel with a wonderful staff and perfect location. As an American traveler we could not have found a better place to stay for our first trip to Paris. The staff speaks English and will go out of their way to make you feel welcome and ensure you have a great experience. I can't compare the room to others in Paris, however, based on all the research I did prior to our trip, I can say this is one of the few hotels I found with a king size bed. The room itself had plenty of space and unique character. The bed was comfortable, and the room was clean. The WiFi was excellent and each room comes with a smart phone that you can use during your trip. The smart phone was super handy and allowed unlimited international calling and data. We did not spend a great deal of time in the hotel because we were out exploring so I cannot rate the spa, restaurant and other amenities. I would recommend buying the breakfast, we did not, and I wish we had. In addition to the wonderful service, this hotel is in the perfect location. Walking distance to everything and surrounded by restaurants, cafes, stores and anything else you might need. I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great place at a good value.

good location for sites

Posted 30-Jan-2018
Pros: The young lady at the front desk from Portugal (Sonia I think was her name),,,,location was good
Cons: If you read above than I'll say no more, (safety of customer belongings)
Location: lot's of things to see close by
Stay was great , end not so much,, we left our bag's for a few hours after check out due to a later train and somebody stole item's out of our bag while in Hotels' care. It was make-up and some costume jewelry,,The young lady from Portugal at the front desk our first few day's was a delight and over achieved at her job, but she was not there on our last day. The room and other area's of the Hotel where fine but if your things are not safe with the staff then what can be said. The manager needs to take a close look at the staff from this day.

Best location and very honest service!

Posted 20-Jan-2018
Pros: Location, large room and bathroom, clean and friendly staff, and they even had gluten free items for breakfast!
Cons: Nothing I can think of
Location: The Louvre, Pont Neuf, Les Halles, Beaubourg.... and so much more... walking distance
We chose this hotel for its location. We could not have been in a better place for our goals for this trip in Paris. When we checked out at 6 am, there were a couple of charges that we did not recognized. But our card was already charges and our taxi was waiting. So the gentleman at the reception told us we will be receiving a credit for the questioned charges. And we did! No need to call, email them or anything to make sure it was done... they just did it... thank you! We sincerely appreciate it.

Nice hotel in a convenient location.

Posted 08-Jan-2018
Pros: Location is good.
Cons: Remodel the lobby/cafe and make Food and Beverage a major focus. Need new pillows!
Location: Louvre, Musee D'Orse, shopping/food in the Marais. Too many great things to list.
The hotel staff could not have been nicer and the location is very good. We actually left this hotel early and moved to a new location deciding to just eat the cost of the expense and pay for another hotel. We moved to the Hoxton which was incredible. Our issue was the lack of a real hotel lobby area. I was in Paris for 8 days with my wife and 3 daughters ages 18, 21 and 24. In the morning, after a long day of walking around Paris or at the end of the evening it's nice to be able to relax in a really nice environment. The lobby of the hotel was just not my style. Feels dated and a bit 1980's. If I owned this Hotel I would invest in making this small area really amazing with incredible F&B. I would open the main cafe room up to the street with sidewalk cafe tables so reminiscent of Paris. The rooms nor there lobby area are conducive to relaxing. They could keep the modern 80's decor in the rooms but ditch it in the lobby or really upgrade it to a very modern clean look. Pour a few craft cocktails and have an excellent small wine list. All this being said, I wish there was a button for maybe when asked if you would recommend. If you are just looking for a place to sleep and all your time on the streets of Paris then this is a solid choice. They have a really nice staff!
