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.

Staff was top notch and very helpful. Hotel is beautiful and the location is great. If you walk in one direction you experience the Champs E'lyse'es, then the other direction it local restaurants that are more budget friendly. ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT.

We really did feel comfortable here. The location is perfect, close to a metro, the Champs Élysées shops and many restaurants. Breakfasts enjoyable. Bed - extremely comfortable, shower good pressure, we had a room with a bath which was large. Quiet, good service, rooms with balconies. Has a semi private outdoor bar seating. Would definitely stay there again - well worth the expense.

We just returned from a family Christmas trip to Paris and stayed at this hotel. I have traveled exstensively and always stay at upscale properties and this one did not disappoint.The hotel, phyisically is stunning. The intimate feel and gorgeous decor just cannot be beat.
we stayed in a suite that could have been used as an apartment it was so roomy. The bathroom was gorgeous and more than enough for me and a 17 yr old teenage girl! I cannot say enough about the staff, so warm and accommodating from the moment we arrived at 10:30 pm. Great location. just off the Arc de Triomphe and a block or two to Ave Georges V. We did not have one request the did not get obliged. I loved practicing my French with the gentlemen working the bar and by the end of our stay we were great friends. These are such difficult times to be traveling and the staff handled everything with warm smiles. This is a beautiful hotel and I look forward to returning (without the teenagers) ha!

The room was a nice size and had a very nice view. The Staff that helped us to our room gave us instructions on how to use the iPad for all the hotel amenities . We had a very large shower and tub with a his and her sink bathroom which also had a bidet . We were in room 301 when you enter this room there is a small hall to the main room with a toilet only on the left. This is where we had the problem. This is a 5 star hotel . I expect it not to stink of urine and I or my husband could not enter that bathroom without gaging. We called the front desk several times before they sent housekeeping which did nothing . It had nothing to do with cleaning it was with plumbing. Then later in the day a gentleman came and place some liquid down the sink drains. That help a little I placed a towel in the sink covering both holes so the stink could not come back into the room. That night the toilet began to over fill with water and again I called the desk they sent someone up. He said they would have to have plumbers look in morning I said that wouldn't do that was our only bathroom . So he went looking for a plunger and came back and temporarily unclog it. It was not fixed the next person is sure to have the same problem and I pity them because it's a lot of money to spend to stay in those conditions . My husband became ill and we had to end our vacation early I have no idea if it was after inhaling all that toxic waste but we left for home and he was put into the hosiptal for septic . Thank goodness we had trip insurance.

The location is great, however the superior double room is like a shoe box size, although it is a “ 5-star” hotel. The first floor room is super mini with zero view, however the hotel staff will not move you to an upper floor even though you stay here for 5 nights. I would give this zero star if I had a choice.

Family long weekend break at Easter. We had an underwhelming
experience at check in, with the staff more interested in chatting to each other than greeting us and helping us .

The room was quite good, we had a suite set up for 2 adults and a 12 year old, although the sofa bed was uncomfortable, ew did ask for a topper twice but never appeared. The suite was at the rear overlooking the courtyard , very quiet, unless you ere in the bathroom and you could clearly here the conversation through the wall from the room next door. Other issues with the set up, soft drinks provided were only for 2, never 3 drinks of the same on offer, paper cups to use with the coffee machine, just awful and no complimentary snacks or biscuits - remember this was a suite in an a 5 star hotel!

The staff at breakfast were very welcoming and helpful, no menu though if you required cooked eggs, poached ,fried, omelette, why? Also, the scrambled eggs in the buffet, they were made from powdered egg! The pastries and croissants at breakfast, so small, tasteless, not much variety on offer. When we passed a boulangerie we experienced quality croissants and pastries yet a 5* hotel offered poor quality. Why no fresh baguettes at breakfast, very strange bread offering.

The hall porter was very kind and helpful, organising taxis and providing advise when needed, shame the concierge or reception staff were so unhelpful.

Checking out, same issue, over 6 staff on reception, quite rude, unhelpful did not even ask how our stay was? Whilst waiting to return to Eurostar, we had a wait in reception, tables were cluttered and not cleared of dirty crockery, the complimentary water was empty and the complimentary chocolate was being offered to all except us, I had to ask for our daughter to be served - why. Remember over 6 staff loitering around reception not busy. We are a mixed race family from England, I can honesty say , as someone who travels extensively globally on business and vacations, this was appalling passive racial discrimination experienced by us.

For the money, there are far better 4 * star plus hotels in Paris, providing better room facilities, breakfast offering and genuine staff who care ( Hilton, Radisson etc).

No we would not return, and I've also advised my Company not to book thsi hotel for any staff business trips.

We loved Hotel Napoleon! At first we though the superior room was quite small but then we remembered that we are in Europe! This hotel has an excellent location at the Arc de Triomphe. It’s a stones throw from Champs Élysées and heaps of bars and restaurants. It won’t take you long to get your bearings and wander Paris like a pro! Eiffel Tower is about 20min walk and Le Marais is about 15 min on the train. The staff are excellent- friendly but professional. From the concierge and check in staff to the waiters and staff met around the hotel. Very helpful and knowledgeable. We are heading back at the end of the month and have upgraded to the Eiffel room which is enormous and has direct views of the Eiffel Tower. I would also like to mention that we left our passports, cash’s no credit cards in the hotel safe. The co fierce team were incredible to get in contact with us immediately and to try to help us get everything back. They went as far as scanning over all our passports so that we can continue travelling around France and checking in to hotels.

Just stayed here for a short break in a Suite room. I did think from the images on the website that the suite would have been a lot larger (not uncommon with images on websites) but it was very nice and comfortable. There was a good, yet simple choice at the buffet breakfast. The location is excellent for discovering much of Paris on foot or via the Metro station about 50 from the front door. I will definitely stay at this hotel again in the future. You felt safe and well looked after by everyone in the team.

We stayed there for our anniversary and they gave us an upgrade for the occasion. The room upgrade gave us a beautiful view of the Eiffel tower.
We were only few steps away from the Arc De Triomphe and the Champs Élysées.
The breakfast buffet had the basic necessities for a good breakfast and the reception was very welcoming and accommodating.
We’ll be back again for sure!

The hotel was beautiful and they gave us a free upgrade due to it being our wedding anniversary. Staff couldn't do enough for us, they were so lovely. The room service breakfast is too overpriced and we had an issue with a blocked toilet and mucky bath jets, but the overall was spectacular. Thank you again for a wonderful stay.
