This was the second time my partner and I stayed at the Grand Hotel Francais and it did not disappoint. The hotel was comfortable, quiet (I am a light sleeper) and staffed with friendly and welcoming people. In particular, there was a lovely lady on reception who took the trouble to leave a complimentary bottle of wine in our room... More

Fantastic hotel in a very good location, near Place de la Nation metro station. Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming - even upgraded our room to a larger, quieter double at the back. Hotel is good value, well equipped, clean and very comfortable. All in all, a great place to stay for a trip to Paris.

The location of this hotel is a little out of the way, however the metro is easy and so close it doesn't matter. You can buy an all day metro ticket on the weekend for 3.75 euros. Needless to say taxis are expensive and not worth it with an easily accessible metro. The hotel itself is spotless and trendy. The... More

The only reason I didn't give this place five stars is the location. It is in a very sweet and quiet neighborhood, but some people may enjoy being further away from the sights. But the metro is soo close, so I suppose it is not a big deal. The people working there are so nice and helpful. They helped me... More

I am belatedly writing this review after last visiting the hotel in Jan 2014 - our 3rd stay in this lovely little hotel. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Paris now, every time we have stayed we have been overwhelmed by how friendly and helpful the front of house staff are, and more importantly what excellent value this hotel...

My husband and I stayed for 7 nights, we had a superior double room with a balcony, which we found very comfortable. The free WiFi is fantastic, the best I had during my whole travel. The hotel staff are amazing, and as us Aussies did our best with basic French, they spoke very good English to us. They go out... More

Back again for our honeymoon, upgraded by the staff of course and welcomed like we were family. This small and easily accessible hotel is perfect for couples. You are a few minutes from Nation metro station to get anywhere in Paris. We used taxis to as it was so easy as you area little further out from the city centre.... More

My wife and I stayed for seven nights. The hotel was excellent. Staff were friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The room had all the facilities we needed and it was spotlessly clean. I agree with all the positive comments made by other contributors. We both liked the area around the hotel in the 11e and... More

Loved our 2 night stay at the hotel. All staff were exceptional. Very friendly & helpful & humoured us with our basic French. Always on hand for advice & recommendations on where to eat & visit. The room was a standard room. Even though it wasn't the biggest room we've ever stayed, it had everything we needed. Would highly recommend... More
