Elegant hotel boasts views of the Champs-Elysees and Eiffel Tower

Hotel Napoleon stands on precious land: The 101-room property is the closest hotel near the Arc de Triomphe. History plays in its favor, too. Built in the 1920s, the building was purchased by a Russian businessman as a wedding present for his beloved French fiancée. Once a stop for the Parisian high society, the picturesque hotel now hosts travelers worldwide who revel in the Napoleon-inspired rooms and fine dining boite, Biovauc Café.

Highlights
  • Closest Paris hotel near the Arc de Triomphe
  • Views of the Champs-Elysees and Eiffel Tower
  • Biovauc Café open for breakfast, lunch and dinner

Standard amenities cover anti-allergic linens, marble and mahogany bathrooms, Wi-Fi, cable TV and a mini bar.

Tiny room, old hotel

Old hotel, uncomfortable & tiny room. Very expensive & not great breakfast. You're paying for the location - but there are better hotels to be had in the area.

lovely

the hotel has an extremely convenient location. plus, the rooms are spotless, the staff is quite friendly, and the hotel offers authentic french decor (i.e. opulent chandeliers, a fireplace in the lobby, & french doors to your private balcony). i only have a ftwo complaints: 1) some walls in the bedroom were paper thin; 2) 20 euros a day for internet access is sinful.

Please visit LES GOURMETS DES TERNES. You'll have to have the hotel make reservaations for you because the establishment is rather "parisien exclusive" (your accent will give you away) but it's a renown restaurant and the beef is phenomenal.

Lovely boutique hotel

Hotel Napoleon was a beautiful hotel with an excellent location. We were able to tour Paris by taking the Metro everywhere and were able to walk to many of the most famous sites. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Although the room was small, the service and cleanliness more than made up for that. We would definitely stay there again.

Best Location you can find

This is a perfect location to all the hot spots to be seen in Paris. You are within in minutes of walking distance to most highligyts of Paris. Those that do require to be traveled to the Metro (subway) is seconds from the front entrance. This was our thirs time in Paris and at same hotel. We love this hotel, very clean, professional staff and great location. Rooms are a bit small but are very classy. Errol Flinn used to stay at this hotel when he came to Paris.

Je T'aime Paris

Hotel location is perfect. Very close to the Charles de Gaulle Etoile Metro station which has multiple connections to different lines making it easier to go to the different areas in Paris and CDG airport via the Metro/RER.

Staff was excellent

Friends first trip to Paris and her birthday! She was a little disappointed in the room at first as she had never been to Europe. It didn't take long for the friendly and helpful staff to calm her down and win her over. The concierges were extremely helpful with dinner suggestions and transportation. Maids were very polite and turndown service with a truffle was great. Everyone was so polite and tolerate of our lousy French. We ate several meals there and they were about the price of everywhere else, but better. I did think the buffet breakfast was very good, but very expensive. The location was excellent for catching the open top buses or the metro and people watching. Highly recommend.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Get museums passes before you go as it saves time and money since you go to a shorter line. Also try the open top buses; there are 2 different companies and they stop at all the big sites. You just show your pass and hop on, hop off!

Good location and close to everything.

The Hotel is at a very good location and close to shopping, dining and few attractions. I wish the rooms were a bit bigger but then it is Paris, we were out most if the time.
