      A Surprise Elegant Boutique Hotel

      Reviewed May 15, 2014
      by (4 reviews) , United States Flag of United States

      A beautiful boutique hotel located around the corner from the Champs de Elysee and a block from the Arc de Triumph. To our surprise we were upgraded to suites - spacious rooms with a sitting area, bed, bath and separate toilet room. The rooms were beautifully appointed, the hotel staff gracious and knowledgeable, and the dining excellent.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Napoleon Paris

      Great Experience


      I stayed at this hotel 23/06/05 as our hotel was fully booked for the first nite of out stay so our hotel put us up in the Napolean Hote free of charge in a delux room. Staff v.nice and helpful, room old style but beautifully done and nice bathroom. Would highly recommend the hote and its location just off the Champs E. Just make sure to book a delux room for the experience.

      Bad start turned excellent!


      Just returned from two nights stay at Hotel Napeleon, on Avenue de Friedland, 8 adonissement, Paris.

      I had orignally booked a Classic Room, however it was a big mistake. Judging by the standard of of this room. this category are not to be recommended. The room was small and dark as it was facing the inner courtyard, the walls needed painting, the plaster was chipped and the bathroom was dated with 70's style pink suite. Very depressing, although the soft furninshings and TV were new. Not what you expect from a 4 star hotel, and not representative of the pictures on the website. Very depressing. The saying "you only get what you pay" for came true!

      I immediately went down to the reseption and found the staff to be very helpful, friendly and understanding, and for a reasonable extra charge upgraded to a Jr. Suite. The suite consisted of a sitting room with sofa, table and two chairs, desk and chair, with sliding doors to the bedroom which had a large "half-poster" comfortable bed. Beautiful drapes and soft furnishings, wonderful rooms facing the avenue, and surprisingly quiet at night.

      Can highly recommend this hotel, but not the Classic Rooms.

      Bad times...


      There's no accounting for taste. However, I did not like the style. If you have to stay at this hotel avoid rooms to the noisy backyard. There is a huge and noisy ventilation unit. Furthermore, construction in the hotel is underway. At check-out they tried to cheat me by charging me not in EUR with a bad exchange rate. However, the location is okay.

      Wonderful stay


      My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in June 2004. Wonderful location, romantic room, friendly staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Napoleon.

      Currently undergoing renovation


      Great location, but be warned there is very loud construction going on all during the day. The room next to ours was being renovated and our walls were shaking with the sounds of jackhammers. We complained and were moved into a quiet suite! Customer service was great.

      Over priced but good location


      We stayed at the Napoleon Oct 18th for 3 days. We tryed to book another hotel a day after we arrived but all hotels were full due to the large food show in town. We had booked for a week in a "superior" room, one up from traditional. The cost was 303 Euros per night. When we arrived the room we were shown was nothing like the pictures on the web site. It was old, run down, small and musty. They immediatly offered us an upgraded room for 340 Euros which we took. It had a nice view and a patio but furniture was old and somewhat dirty. Certainly not worth the money. The airconditioning did not work as it was shut off for the season and we could not leave the windows open at night due to noise so the room was hot at night. The bathroom was nice but the toilette was in a separate small room on it's own with no ventalation and so small you could almost touch the wall with your knee's. We could not hook up to the internet available and the cost was 19.95 Euros for 12 hours. We never did get it working while we were there even after soliciting help from the front desk and the free 800 help line. Continental breakfast was 17 euros each which we did not use. We moved for the last 2 days to the Hotel Splenid Etoile on Ave Carnot 5 minutes walk at 240 Euros per night which was far superior in service, internet, and hotel room than the Napolian. I would make the Splendid Etoile my next hotel in Paris and would not recomend the Napoleon. I must say that the Napoleon had a beautiful lobby and hotel bar but that did not make up for the dingy rooms.

      A Sparkler off the Champs


      We stayed in this hotel in October, 03. Yes, as one critic put it, the bathroom needed some updating but not bad. The room itself was large and quite nice. Carpet was new. All public areas were quite nice and the staff was most helpful.Couldn't ask for friendlier or more competent personnel.Good location, just of the Champs. 1block from the Arch and the Effiel Tower sparkled through the window of our room at night. Exellent breakfast buffet each morning.Jack Ellis

      First class hotel


      This is a very impressive hotel. I came here with my fiancee and we were upgraded from a standard room to a suite with a first class view.

      A bottle of champagne was also left for us in our room when we went out in the afternoon. Only criticism is thin walls through which our next door neighbour's television could be heard clearly.

      Disappointing Hotel


      I travel to Europe several times a year and to Paris yearly. On December 2002, I stayed at the Napoleon Hotel. Although the staff was courteous and accomodating, the room and bathroom needed immediate and serious refurbishing. The room and bathroom themselves were large (deluxe) and the location of the hotel was fabulous. However, the carpet was ripped, furniture old (not antique) and the bathroom was missing tiles. Extremely disappointing. Will not return.

      We had an expensive morning 'rush hour' taxi drive from the airport to Hotel Napoleon, a charming upscale boutique hotel within sight of the Arc de Triumph and around the corner from the Champs de Elysee. The four of us left our bags at the hotel and explored Paris for a cafe, french pastry and a walk down to the River Seine trying to ward off …

      ... would walk. Yeah wrong decision again! Of course it is uphill, up stairs and then uphill again. This church is made out of gypsum. It has five domes and is built in the Roman-Byzantine style. It was built from 1875-1919, at a time when the French just ousted the German's again. Built on 83 pillars that are sunk 130 feet into the ground because it sits on the old gypsum mines. There are 300 steps in front of the church which reminds me of the Spanish Steps in Rome. If you look ...

      August 26th, 2014. My first encounter with my host family and also my first day in Paris. It was a very fast day and I was very tired until I saw a strange metal tower appearing from the clouds, if you guessed the Eiffel Tower then you guessed correctly.
      My host family was very happy to see me and I was also very happy to see them, our first conversation went great and I was ready to go home (in Courcouronnes) but they had another plan as we turned off of the highway and into ...

Mum and I, however, did run into another kiwi in a pharmacy...a lovely young guy from Wellington doing his O.E. After Unesco we headed down towards the Arc de Triumph and along Champs-A avenue for some lunch and a spot of shopping. Found some awesome new prescription sunglasses to buy... Thought this might be difficult and have to pick them up ...

      ... up with the topdeck tour, met a few other couples but john and I are both horrible with names. Headed off to tea with the group (around 40). Average tea but john tried snails which he loved. Couldn't bring myself to do it, they were so green and oozy looking. The Paris by night tour was beautiful and very interesting to learn some of the history behind the beautiful old buildings. Seen most of monuments and even drive around the crazy roundabout around the arc de ...
