Location : near station Nation and Line 9 metro, very convenient. Facilities : everything you expect for 3 stars hotel is fulfill. Nice and tidy room. Only it is just tooooooooo small... Reception : very good and helpful. Fluent in English. Environment is quiet and it is just worth the money you spent.

This was our first time in Paris and I chose this hotel after reading trip advisor. It had high ratings and very reasonable rate, Wi-Fi, close to metro lines (as we were not renting a car - thank goodness - as parking would of been a huge challenge) and it was close enough to all the attractions - well, it...

When we arrived at the Grand Hotel Français last week, we were greeted by Vanessa who simply said:'Welcome home'. And that is how it feels when we stay at this delightful small hotel in the 11th Arrondissement of Paris. This warm greeting was followed by advice that we had received an upgrade. Yippeee!!!!

This was a good hotel to stay in for a short break. The staff at reception were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was quite big by Parisian standards. The bed was divine.

OK, so hotels in Paris are expensive and this one doesn't look like much from the outside. But give it a chance. I took my girlfriend there for valentines day and we had rose petals and champagne in the room on the 14th (which she loved) and the bathroom was gorgeous. It's also very centrally located - we walked pretty... More
