Recent guest reviews

I live in a wheelchair. They were very accommodating. Everything worked great and had a wonderful time.

The hotel staff at the front desk was always pleasant and helpful. The concierge guy, Ricky, was also very welcoming and upbeat upon our arrival. The location of the hotel was also perfect with a short walk to the Louvre Museum. I would definitely stay there again!

L'Empire Paris has a great location only two blocks west of the Louvre and convenient to many other museums and the Champs Elyeese. The staff are wonderful, very helpful and fun, great English skills. The hotel is mostly clean and quiet with a good breakfast buffet. Recommended highly, would gladly stay again.

This review is long overdue. We stayed here on our last leg of France- Italy-france trip in 2016.

One of the guests in my room contracted bed bugs while staying at L'Empire Paris. The hotel refused to acknowledge that there were bed bugs but offered for my friend to sleep on a cot instead of the pull-out couch. The cot was ducktaped together (picture evidence), and my friend fell threw the bed in the middle of the night. When she returned home, she went to her doctor who confirmed that she did indeed have bed bugs. The hotel has refused to refund our money for the stay at the hotel.

Professional staff, modern and spacious rooms, good breakfast buffet, perfect hotel location. A huge plus for our comfortable stay was a " handy smartphone" - guests can take it from their room to anywere in town : it includes free local calls, free enternet and all nessesary helpful apps for tourists.

Very warm welcome after a tiring overnite flight. Arrived in early morning, but staff offered to get our room ready in 15 minutes. We were served complemetary fresh squeezed juice and coffee while we waited. Best part-a loaner smart phone to use for free global calls and google map use while tourng Paris. Great helpful staff. Upgraded our room which included a great bathroom with both shower and tub.

Great location allowing us to walk to all the sites. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Good breakfast buffet.

This is an older hotel that has been completely remodeled. Rooms are true to the pictures shown online. The deluxe room is very spacious by European standards and comfortable. Does have elevator to 5th floor, but if on 6th will need to do some spiral stair walking, which is no problem. Only reservation available was with breakfast included. It consisted of scrambled or poached eggs, bacon, fresh juices, fruit, etc. Very nice selection. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, speaking fluent English. As we spent part of our vacation in London and only needed a smaller bag, the hotel held our luggage for several days while we were gone. Worked out well and did check back into the hotel when we returned from London. By American standards, this is truly a gem!

The hotel was located in a central position for experiencing all of the city. The rooms are spacious and beds very comfortable. The staff is kind and helpful. Suggestion: coffee / tea or hot water should be available to complete what the hotel has to offer its guests.

Dear Guest, If I may, I would like to clarify the situation for the future guests that might read your review. We take every review from our guest very seriously and we try to improve our service level everyday. Our team work hard and is passionated. I think this could be seen along all the reviews posts over the years. I can assume we don't have bed bugs in our hotel. You booked a superior room suitable for 2 people but arrived with 3 people. We could upgrade you to a nice Executive Suite as we could manage it. Further to your complain, we added an extra bed to your room, which is different from the queen size bed you have in the Suite. At your check-out we agreed with a special rate, which is not mentionned in your review. Of course during your stay we controled the rooms many times without any results. Also, after your check-out we called a specific compagny to check the bed and all the room as we are very concerned with this potential issue of bed bugs. Nothing was found in the room after hours of inspection. Once again, we are sorry you didn't fully enjoyed your stay with us. Your review contrast with the level of service we use to provide. We would be more than happy to have the chance to welcome you again and prove you there is nothing wrong with any sort of bugs. We stay at your disposal to discuss about it. Best regards, Jessé Ducourtioux Executive Assistant
