Hotel Napoleon Paris: classic French style near the Arc de Triomphe

Hotel Napoleon Paris is a sumptuously decorated hotel only a few steps from the Arc de Triomphe, a central location for those who want to be close to the main attractions of Paris. The hotel is located in a building constructed in the 1920s and given by a rich Russian businessman to his French wife as her wedding present.

The interiors are done in the classic French style, but updated for the modern traveller. For people who are in Paris for business meetings at La Defense, Hotel Napoleon is an ideal location because the metro stop for Line 1, which goes directly to La Defense, is only a few steps away.

If you are going to Paris for leisure, you are only minutes from the Champs Elysees, the designer shopping heaven of Rue Faubourg Saint Honoré (where you find boutiques of Dior, Gucci, Armani, Max Mara, etc.), and the museums of the Louvre and the l’Orangerie.

The advantages of staying in this area are proximity to metro Line 1 which goes to La Defense and central Paris, walking distance to museums and monuments that most visitors want to see, close to designer boutiques. The disadvantage of this location is it is very touristy.

Hotel Napoleon has rooms and suites to suit different budgets and size of traveling party. All rooms have free Wi-Fi, air conditioning, large bathrooms, safe, flat-screen TV with international channels. The hotel has gym and good facilities for small conferences and meetings.
