We stayed at the Grand Hotel Francais for one week in October. The staff is what made our experience amazing. They were genuinely friendly, accommodating to our needs and requests, and always available. Did I mention friendly? What a great surprise in Paris! The hotel is gem. Very clean and modern. The location close to the metro makes getting anywhere... More

Just back from a great stay at this great hotel in Paris. The staff were extremely friendly - particularly Vanessa - and the rooms lovely. The area was slightly outside Paris but less touristy and very close to metro stations. I very highly recommend it!

When we first arrived at the hotel we were greeted with a bit of an attitude. My husband asked if there were any rooms with a balcony and was sternly informed that we were already upgraded to a larger room because Americans travel with so much luggage and then complain on how small rooms are in Paris. The clerk then... More

It wasn't what I was expecting. I was on the topmost floor and it was almost like a loft with a slanted roof. The room was small and the slanted roof made it smaller. Didn't look anything like what I saw in the pictures. It's about 10 minutes drive from the city attractions. I never used their metro. Staff was... More

We visited Paris in October 2014 to celebrate our anniversary and stayed at the hotel for 7 nights. Hotel is very close to metro (2 minutes walk), clean, and quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were given a room on first floor but upon request we were provided a room with balcony. We really enjoyed our stay... More

Got taxi from airport. Surprised it wasn't exactly in the area it advertised as being in. However the friendly service, room upgrade to a balcony room was fabulous. Soon got the hand of the metro close by. Recommend to others

I chose this hotel based on reviews, reasonable rates and location east of the Bastille, an interesting part of Paris. We received a warm reception and found the front desk staff to be always helpful and friendly in both French and excellent English. The room was small but very well appointed and comfortable. The bathroom was spick and span and... More

From the minute you walk in the door you are made to feel welcome. Everyone on reception was helpful and warm to us, which is very important when arriving in an unfamiliar city. This service continued throughout the stay. The breakfast was also wonderful and good value. I was sceptical about going for it as I feel in France a... More

Stayed three nights and now wish we could have stayed longer. Location was near subways and restaurants. We could easily get anywhere in Paris on subways. Room was modern and impeccably clean. The breakfast was best I've ever had at a hotel. Staff was very helpful and quickly switching to English each time we stumbled lack of speaking French.

All good, decent service and rooms were fine. Breakie is a cracker. I went to celebrate my mother's health and took my sisters children too. I am an exec, it fits the bill for all travellers as my sisters kids could be annexed off to a seperate room. Food was good, service good. No bother at all.
