Just finished three nights at Grand Hotel Francais. All the glowing reviews I had read are true. This was our first time in Paris and the hotel experience helped us feel welcome, oriented and at ease (though we speak barely any French). Foremost was the manager and his staff Tremendous at all hours and they were able to provide multiple... More

My first trip to Paris and I was not disappointed. I arrived at the hotel at about 1800 and was warmly welcomed by the lady on reception and the check in was swift and efficient. My room - 115 on the first floor was compact but more than adequate and the ensuite shower room was very well appointed. The room... More

Everything about our stay was perfect. The room was lovely and pristine, and the proprietor went out of his way to welcome us and ensure that we had everything we needed. As an example, when the restaurant we had resuested for dinner was booked, he spent a great deal of time and found us just the right place, on very... More

Nice and friendly hotel! Near to a metro station (Rue de Bullets).Tiny little rooms (that's Paris after all), continetal breakfast, and the stuff quite gentle i have to admit! Last but not least the reception guy who makes you feel like being in your home!!!! I would personally recommend this little gem!

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of February. The hotel itself looked very plain from the outside but is lovely inside. The whole hotel is very small and the room we stayed in was also small but was perfect for what we needed. We had a room with a balcony which stretched around the front corner of the... More

I use Tripadvisor all the time to help me plan my hotel and site seeing adventures both here and abroad and I have to say some of the reviews do not do this lovely hotel justice.

After trawling through trip advisor for hours trying to find a half decent hotel to stay in in Paris on our budget I somehow stumbled across Grand Hotel Francais and what a great find it was.

The room had everyting, but it is very small for American standards. It is close to the subway and the service is good. The hotel is renovated so the fixtures are new and everything worked. The bathroom has a stan up showers, very very small, but it worked for the 3 nights we stayed there.
