                    The staff of the hotel was absolutely outstanding and they reply immediately to every necessity

                    As per all french hotels, the standard rooms are very small. I booked three rooms and we all have problem of stink. After my complaint the staff changed my room; unfortunately our parents are not used to hotel, and they didn't complained. But all our rooms suffered a terrible smell in their respecive bathroom

                    Great hotel apartment style, nice touch was the bottle of Moet and sweets waiting for our arrival. The location was good for the Louvre, restaurants and shops and easy walking to other areas.

                    The folding bed was terrible. An adult and a 14 year-old shared this and you could feel the metal spring base under the sheet, digging into your body. We complained and staff immediately helped out by padding the mattress with 2 extra doonas underneath which made a difference.

                    The hotel was perfect. Located in a 10 minutes walk from Louvre, and 2 minutes from a central subway station. The room (superior) was quite large and confortable. The service was excellent, the staff is very helpful. The food was awesome.

                    Nothing at all. Although the price is a little high, the hotel delivers what it promises.

                    location was great and the breakfast included in the room price was superb.

                    Carpets were stained and shabby in the hallways, tiling was poor int he bathroom and looked shabby. Shower screen was not sufficient and the floor constantly flooded. Pillows were like sleeping on two blocks of concrete, not nice.

                    Room, bathroom etc all a great size, staff very attentive on arrival, explained all the features of the hotel and the room.

                    Although we were on a non smoking floor seemed like the room had a slight stale smoke smell but this seemed to go after the windows open for a while and staff offered us a ventilation of the room .

                    While our stay at L`Empire Paris the staff was extremely helpfull. They were very positive and always offered a quick smile. The location was perfect for us. It has access to many attractions and eating establishments while maintaining a lovely quiet setting. Breakfast at the hotel was wonderfull. It gave us a great start to our busy days. The rooms were a delightfull space to return to each day and our sleep was peaceful. Our stay at L`Empire Paris was a very delightful part off our visit to Paris

                    Nice modern hotel with big rooms (unusual in Paris) and good location.

                    Although room was facing inside in a courtyard with only a tree, there were strange noises in the early morning which didn't let us sleep. In my opinion price is pretty high.

                    We stayed for 2 nights with our two boys, 7 and 10 yrs, during the Easter holidays. We stayed in the family room (the Beauharnais room). Was a large 1 bdrm apartment with a balcony overlooking central court. Very clean (no carpets). Amazing to find such a big place in such a central location; Notre Dame and the Louvre were both a short walk away and we also walked to the Musée D'Orsay, Musée, Rodin, the Eiffel Tower, and the Pompidou Centre. Breakfast buffet had a surprisingly good selection, even for our fussy eaters!

                    Decor was very modern but not overly practical: separate toilet room did not have a sink in it, shower wall did not extend very far so floor got quite wet, not much storage space for clothes, silly little things like that.
