Map of Hotel de l'Empereur

Hotel de l’Empereur is located on the corner of a small street overlooking the Hotel des Invalides, an imposing building from the 1670’s and home to Napoleon’s tomb. Its magnificent golden dome is one of the most recognizable sites in Paris after the Eiffel Tower, which is also within walking distance of the hotel. The metro is a block away.

The 7th Arrondissement is a mainly residential neighborhood, with beautiful architecture, impressive homes, and lots of restaurants. Major tourist sites such as the Musee d’Orsay, Quai Branly, Saint-Germain-des-Pres Boulevard, and even the Champs Elysees are all within a 20-minute walk of the hotel.
