I would like to recommend this nice boutique hotel, the hotel staff made us feel like at home when we stayed there for business. From the breakfast room staff to the revenue manager Mr Soufiane Ghezouti, they are all nice, friendly and always put guests' needs as first priority, even if you ask them for shopping advise and the address...

I can recommend the hotel, very nicely decorated and comfortable. The breakfast although extra was excellent and served until 11 am. The only critism is that the wardrobe space was way too small. A few coat hooks behind the door would be a big help. The location is hard to beat, one block from the metro and the champs élysées....

I booked this hotel online at about £80 per night for he room, paid a bit extra for upgrade as well. Compared price on a few sites, turnout one site (lastminute.com I think) had a bargain. It is about 10 mins walk to Avenue des Champs-Élysées (very good with shopping and restaurants). The hotel is quiet, pretty, clean, especially a...

For a recent long-planned trip with a girlfriend (without kids, without husbands), Hotel Francois was a perfect base. Walking, shopping, discovering new dining spots and taking in the autumn season in Paris were our priorities. As urbanites ourselves, we appreciated this classy hotel for the excellent location, courteous and helpful hospitality, wireless connectivity throughout the hotel, and clean/comfortable furnishings. After...

This was our first trip to Paris and we found the location of this hotel to be brilliant. It is pretty much 1 min from the Champs Elysees, 5 mins to the Arc de Triomphe, approx 15 mins to the Concorde and from there just another 5-10 mins through the garden to the Lourve. We stayed in an executive room...

My wife and I spent recently many days in this small, classy hotel, when my flat in Paris had been renovated. It is not easy to find a good hotel that is at the same time recently renovated (by a famous architect) and with a reasonable prise, compared to other hotels in this top area of Paris. Really caring staff,...

My girlfriend and I stayed here last weekend (September 24th and 25th) whilst on a short break in Paris. I often have reservations about 'smaller' hotels but this one was absolutely wonderful! When we arrived, a very welcoming gentleman greeted us and took our bags in. We had not told the hotel that we would be arriving 5 hours before...

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. I selected this hotel because it was close to the Champs Elysee, the L'Arc de Triomphe and transportation (literally a 5 minute stroll from the hotel). Hotel Francois 1er was the perfect spot for us. The L'OpenTour hop on hop off buses have a stop around the corner and down the...
