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
Location

Hotel Napoleon occupies prime real estate: It is the closest hotel to the Arc de Triomphe. As a result, some rooms boast views of the iconic landmark, plus other destinations like the Eiffel Tower and Champs-Elysees.

Rooms

Rooms at Hotel Napoleon celebrate Empire-style grandeur with luxury linens, bold stripes and antique furniture. Guests will admire the opulence that pops in every corner, from dramatic fabric canopies behind beds to sparkling chandeliers hung from ceilings lined with crowned moldings. Windows let the natural light peep through and look out to either Avenue de Frieland or the hotel's inner courtyard. Pedestal desks invite business travelers to catch up on work between meetings. Standard amenities cover anti-allergic linens, marble and mahogany bathrooms, Wi-Fi, cable TV and a mini bar.

Dining

Bivouac Café sets the mood for fine dining in a sumptuous setting. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the restaurant is known for its seasonal dishes and delicate sauces. Signatures include Tartar Steak with Pont Neuf potatoes and Crawfish sautéed with chorizo and Spanish risotto.

Top class location

Hotel is a couple of minutes from the Arc de Triomphe and a metro station so location is great. Hotel is a lovely building with nice areas to sit in foyer. Rooms are medium sized and well presented. Bathrooms offered great shower and bath and high quality toiletries. Beds very comfortable . Safe and fridge in room too - The fridge was the mini bar which was very expensive if you took out anything. Breakfast was expensive at €28 but dinner was better value. Staff were very friendly and several spoke English.

Great location

The hotel is in a great location and the decor of the hotel and rooms is excellent. However the bar staff are not very welcoming or polite. Didn't make you feel like returning to the bar. Apart from that the hotel is fantastic. Such a shame.

Best Little Hotel in Paris

The Napoleon has become our hotel when in Paris. The staff could not be better and did everything they could to make our stay perfect. The location near the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs -Elysees make it ideal. Our accomodations were spacious and made to our liking.Warm, clean and comfortable. We will always return to the Napoleon.

Excellent trip to Paris!

Hotel Napoleon was wonderful. Just a block off from the Champs Elysees with views of both the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. Very safe surroundings and good shopping. Breakfast buffet is somewhat expensive, but the experience does make up for it. Would definitely stay again- Almost booked a cheaper hotel last minute, but after passing by that hotel on the way back to the airport, we were soooo glad to have stayed at Hotel Napoleon.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Salon Biguine was right around the corner. I needed a haircut before I left but decided to get one in Paris for the experience... Asked the Concierge, who strongly recommended this salon and said he sends his celebrity guests there, who always return satisfied. My haircut was excellent by the way- and reasonably priced.

It exceeded my expectations

Even though we reserved the Jr. suite, but they gave us a suite with the view of Arc de triumph. The bathroom was nice, clean and big. The room was spacious and we have three closets in the room. The staff was very friendly and the location was perfect.

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.
