The Hotel De L'Empereur was a beautiful little hotel in Paris, France. We were there during the beginning of the Tour De France and it was still moderately priced. It's right next to Hôtel National des Invalides or Napoleon's Tomb and museum. This hotel is also an easy walk away from the Eiffel Tower. The rooms were small but nice and clean. You could choose from a single room or double and there were also triple and quad rooms available. Many hotels in Paris are very expensive and this one was only about €$100 a night for a double occupancy room in the summer. There is computer access in the downstairs lobby for those who need it. They offer a nice breakfast every morning that is extra money but delicious. Many other restaurants and shops were fairly close by. If you do search engines on the Internet, this hotel does not often show up. Many of the trip advising websites also don't mention this lovely little hotel. I would recommend going directly to their website to book. If you are looking for a decent priced hotel in the Heart of Paris, I promise... you won't be disappointed. www.hotelempereur.com.

Since we were facing the courtyard, our room was very quiet at night, even with the windows open. I would expect rooms facing the street to be considerably noiser. A major negative to our room was our mattress. Both my partner and I are below average height, yet our feet dangled off the edge. Also, our mattress was decidedly concave, with little to no middle support. It was also free of padding and was like sleeping directly on springs. We decided to sleep on top of the blankets, and use the spare to cover ourselves. Not ideal, by any means, but passable.
A breakfast buffet is served in the lobby from 7am - 11am. They have an assortment of breads, yogurt, sliced meats, cheese, cereal, coffee, juice, fruit, and jam. It's an additional 7 EUR. Get there early or the good stuff will be gone and you would be better off going to a cafe for breakfast. We saw several around the hotel for 6 - 7 EUR. The location is what makes this hotel so great. The Seventh is a wonderful neighborhood, and has a glut of great shops, restaurants, and bars within easy walking distance. It's safe, clean, and close to the Metro station.

The rooms are on the smaller size (perfect if you don't plan to spend a lot of time in it), tastefully decorated and several come with a view of the dome (ours on the 6th floor did). Each contains a phone with direct access to the Internet, TV, minibar, modern bath or shower (ours had a shower only), safe, and hair-dryer. They are very family-friendly (there are triple and quad rooms) and are prepared for babies. The hotel also has an elevator and room-service. Breakfast is available, "all you can eat", and optional.
My room was up on the 6th floor and had a small balcony. The night time view was terrific. The room was smallish, but the bathroom was modern (with a shower, not a bath), spotlessly clean with plenty of linens.
What is exceptional about this hotel is its location. Literally you are minutes from some of the most important attractions in Paris: Invalides (across the street), Champs Elysee and the Rodin Museum (15 minute walk), Eiffel Tower and the Paris Sewer Tour(10 minute walk), Rue Cler and Metro station (3 minutes), Ecole Militaire and the Air France bus terminal (5 minute walk) that goes to Orly. There are also many restaurants nearby.
