The staff were very friendly. Rooms were decorated in a modern clean style and very comfortable. Wifi was free. Breakfast was included and was good. Neighborhood has lots of useful shops - cheese, meat, chocolate, bakeries... And close to an RER and Metro stop. We would stay there again.

Excellent place to stay in Paris. Room was small, boutique feel. Breakfast enough to set you up for the day. Lots of local restaurants near by. Two metro stops within in easy walking distance. No tea/coffee making facilities in room

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights; could have not been more pleased with the choice! In the past have paid the same or more for a decent enough hotel but Grand Hotel Francais was a real find. The hotel is well located (metro line 9 takes you to all the sights or within a walking distance); the staff were...

I had intended to travel to the Loire Valley, but a two-week long rolling train strike prevented me from traveling there. Returning from a couple of dayes in Lyon, I needed a place to stay in Paris while I waited for the...

I have stayed in several hotels in Paris over the years. Some had friendly staff, some had efficient staff, and some hotels were beautifully maintained. This hotel does it all beautifully. Reception staff responded promptly and efficiently to all requests, both before and during our visit. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and they always seemed to have time...

The wife and I recently made our first ever trip to Paris and we booked a week at the Grand Hotel Francais based on the strong reviews of Tripadvisor. Having never been to Paris before, proximity to the metro was a must, and friendly staff was a huge help with the little details of our trip. Upon arrival, we were...

My wife and I spent three days in Paris as part of our honeymoon. We arrived at the Grand Hotel Francais earlier in the morning expecting our room not to be ready. While we did have to wait until 2 PM for our room, the manager was more than willing to put all our (large) luggage in a locked storage...

Stayed here for a night while in Paris. The Hotel is right by the metro station so it makes for easy travel to all tourist sites. The guy at the front counter was super nice and very laid back. he spoke english very well and told us how to get to the Eiffel tower. The rooms are super small, but...
