“Fantastic hotel right in the heart of Paris”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Napoleon for 3 nights. It was an incredible experience!! The hotel is situated smack down in the middle of Paris, just next to Arc de Triophe and Champs Elyssee, Lido and all the fancy shops. It also has easy access to the subway system. For us, it was the ideal location. It really doesn’t get any better than this. The hotel is decorated in a chic classical style, very elegant , with a relaxing atmosphere. We stayed in one of the junior suites, which was spacious, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Also my husband had lots of fun looking at all the paintings and drawings of Napoleon, of which the hotel has a really large collection. Basically there was nothing to complain about our stay at Hotel Napoleon. Everything was perfect, everybody nice and very discrete. Breakfast was delicious, with plenty of options. We had a great time staying at Hotel Napoleon and we’ll surely stay there again on our next visit to Paris.

After going through dozens of hotels in Paris, I picked Napoleon for the location (right next to Arc de Triumph and Champs Elysee), french decor and the name. We spent 7 night there.

The decor was great every detail is well though and everything is matching: cushions to the drapes and seat covers... cute paintings in 18-19th century style... even lift is classic. Location was great we walk up and down Champs Elysee everyday, metro is just meters away but rather busy so cabs were the best option get to see Paris and not crowded.

To say in short: we had some issues with the the room, so staff (from cleaning lady to hotel manager and owner) were all trying to help and resolved the issue with the best outcome for everyone. I believe the true colors come out in "out of the usual" situations. And this hotel lived to it's name and made our stay memorable one.

Room Tip: book a suite or junior suite great views and lovely balconies

This was a family vacation trip, a big family, 3 generations, 5 teenagers and 6 adults. When I travel on business I know pretty much what to expect based on where in the world I happen to be, with this large a group and range of ages, I had no idea what to expect.
I shouldn't have worried, the Hotel Napoleon Paris provided near perfection in every aspect.
We had taken the Eurostar out of London for a quick day and half in Paris, and we arrived what I thought would be early for any hotel. When we showed up at about 1:30 in the afternoon, the plan was to simply drop off the overnite bags we were carrying and tour the city, then check in later in the evening.
1:30 in the afternoon and our rooms were ready!!! WOW, we were able to check in which was quick, easy and professional, put our bags in the rooms, wash off the travel dust from the train and subway ride, and look for a light lunch somewhere in the tourist zone.

On the way out the door, the concierge stopped us and asked us if we needed any help? Yup, got up out of the chair, walked over and asked us if we needed anything! If you travel a lot, you know that doesn't happen much. We asked about lunch, he recommended a sidewalk place several blocks away and it was perfect for a quick uncomplicated lunch before we got in line with all the other tourists.

The concierge also took care of dinner reservations (remember this was 11 people), at a nice restaurant that didn't break the budget.

The other stuff. Lobby, clean, well decorated, nicely laid out and air conditioned (it was hit 93 in Paris on the day we arrived).

Rooms - excellent. Clean as a whistle, everything you needed and more, nice view of the Arch and reasonably quiet even though you're in a great location on a major downtown Paris street. And yes, when you got back to your room after walking around Paris , you bed was turned down, radio playing soft music and a water bottle (included not an extra charge) waiting for you.

Location - less than a block from the subway station, two blocks from the Arch, two blocks from Champs-Élysées and perhaps a 30 minute walk from Tour Eiffel, (or you can take a subway just about anywhere if you don't like walking). bottom line, it's easy to get to without a lot of cabs or a car and you're easy access to business or tourist centers.

Facilities - restaurant. It's a hotel restaurant, and like most hotel restaurants, it is what it is. We had breakfast there just because i was quick and easy. Food was good to very good, service staff was top notch, this is Paris so the pricing is Paris pricing, always high for what you get.

Bar - perfect - a few minutes after you sat down, inside or outside, your sever was there taking care of your order very efficiently.

Staff - great. Check in, questions, bar and restaurant, check out, very efficient, very appropriate. We asked the bell captain to hang on to our bags after we checked out and picked them up on our way to the train station for the night train back to London. No problems, every member of the staff were professional.

This is a small hotel, about 150 rooms max, and they leverage that size to give each guest very personal and professional service.

Next time in Paris, business or pleasure, not question where I'll stay.

We recently enjoyed 3 nights at Hotel Napoleon which was recommended by a friend. The hotel location was very convenient to the metro, steps from the Arc de Triomphe at Place de L'Etoile, so very convenient for touring the city. We found the hotel service to be excellent. All staff members were very helpful, and were gracious and friendly in all of our interactions. Knowing only basic French, our stay was made even easier as each staff member spoke English. Our room was very comfortable and quiet, and the buffet breakfast included in our package rate was really excellent! We left on Sunday morning, the final day of the Tour de France, but the concierge coordinated our taxi service which was very helpful and prompt. I would highly recommend this hotel to friends and colleagues.

Room Tip: We chose an Executive Room and were assigned an interior room which was blissfully quiet, most appre...

Stayed for a long weekend on 11th July, the hotel is situated not far from the Arc de Triomphe which we could see from our bedroom window. Staff were very helpful and spoke excellent english. Our room was a junior suite on the 4th floor which was very spacious, the bathroom was tiled in marble from top to bottom and had lovely toiletries, the air conditioning was very welcome as the weather was hot, so we felt comfortable while we were there. Can't comment on the food as we ate out. Decour was lovely it so suited the location. I would stop there again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Behind the history of the hotel, hides a love story.... The love story between a rich Russian businessman, Alexander Pavlovich Kliaguine, and a young french student who first met at a "literature salon" in 1928. It was love at first sight. In order to introduce her to Parisian "high society" at the time, he bought a hotel in the prestigious 8th arrondissement and gave it to her as a wedding present. Still today the hotel belongs to the Kliaguine family. Today, following a large renovation program, the hotel is proud to announce its 5th star. With its unique location, just a short walk away from the Champs-Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe, the Hotel Napoleon is one of the most legendary hotels of the city: a fine address to discover and rediscover. Our 52 rooms and 50 Suites are all designed in the Empire style with newly refurbished and modernized colors. A Parisian atmosphere still remains in the Hotel. The Napoleon includes also a Bar- Restaurant: the Bivouac Cafe, 8 meeting spaces and a fitness room. ... more   less
