We had stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. We would like to send our special thanks to Vanessa and Zyad, who helped us genuinely for everything, such as calling for booking tickets for attractions, even actively suggesting all sorts of local restaurant and shops to us as a new visitor in Paris. Staff in the hotel are always wearing... More

5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We loved the Grand Hotel Francais, and would absolutely stay there again with pleasure. We spent 6 nights there as the first half of our honeymoon and found that everything met or exceeded our expectations, and I'll note right off the top that the bed was amazing - high quality bedding and an outstanding mattress. We arrived at 11:30 a.m.... More

Just stayed here for le tour weekend. All boxes ticked for me. The location is fine, the staff are excellent, the rooms are small but spotless. It's everything you need as a decent base for sightseeing. The metro is right beside but we did most things by foot as we like to see everything.

Found this hotel on Trip Advisor and we were thoroughly impressed. Was easy to get to from train/metro and centrally enough located to tour around sites, we even walked down to central area around Seine/Notre Dame one day (but only advise if up for exercise-walk). They upgraded our room on arrival and we found complementary wine when we checked in.... More

This a great little hotel. Better than I expected for the price. Friendly staff, clean, nicely appointed rooms. I just jumped on the interment and booked it about a week before and crossed my fingers, I was very pleased!

The front desk staff at this hotel were very friendly and helpful. I arrive early the morning of my check-in date. I knew I would not be able to check-in yet and just wanted to check my bag so I could go explore Paris. The front desk person happily checked the bag, but then even offered me the buffet breakfast...

It is a great hotel, clean, friendly, small but nice rooms and the price is great. But the location wasn't for me. Yes, its next to the metro but then you are looking at 15-20 minute trip to just about anywhere. If you've been out all day and want to come back to the hotel it almost doesn't make sense... More

Friendly staff and very clean although very small. We stayed on the sixth floor for four days. It suited us as after two months in a camper-van we didn't notice the small rooms! We had a balcony small but good for drying the washing. The bathroom was airy and very clean as was the Hotel. Best features are the helpful... More

My husband and I stayed two nights on our honeymoon. I wish we could've stayed longer. Zyad and all the hotel staff were so welcoming and warm. We were upgraded to the Jr. Suite and champagne and chocolates were brought to the room. The rooms were very clean and the bed was comfortable, we slept wonderfully. The breakfast was excellent...

I keep reading how "perfect" this hotel is, and, as I can agree with the accolades for the cleanliness of the hotel and the friendliness of the staff, the location is certainly a cause for concern for anyone who is in Paris to see the sites. First, the good news: The rooms in the hotel are immaculate. You will find... More
