Just returned from my 4th trip to Paris, and my 3rd stay at this hotel. Location is very convenient, just blocks from the George V Metro and the Champs Elysees, yet away from the crowds. Rooms, baths, amenities -- all lovely. But the most wonderful thing about this beautiful little boutique hotel is the staff. Everyone is friendly and as... More

This boutique hotel right off the Champs Elysees was wonderful providing a very "French" renaissance atmosphere combined with amenities of a luxury hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful when organizing our day. The location was fantastic as we ended up being in Paris for the final leg of the 2015 Tour de France...amazing!

We stayed here for 4 nights in July 2015 with my family. We had two rooms, both were clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly. No complaints to speak of. We have all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel François 1er. The rooms are typically European -- SMALL-- but nicely decorated and appointed. The restaurant offerings are limited to a breakfast...

The Hotel is wonderfully located close to everything- walking distance from key landmarks and amazing restaurants and luxury shops, the staff were professional, helpful and welcoming; we went during Christmas time and the city was bustling with bazaars and it was a wonderful experience. The rooms were comfortable, functional, and well designed, a tad small with limited cupboard space but... More

The service and the atmosphere were friendly. Our room was what we were hoping for or - dreaming about. The location was perfect for 14 of July. The breakfast was served with style. I really liked it!

A fabulous hotel. Awesome location close to Champs and Arc de triomphe. Every employee friendly and helpful. The place was decorated beautifully with French style. The room size was large, comfortable with welcoming amenities. The breakfast buffet was elaborate with many selections. The concierge was nice, upfront with costs and suggestions. This was easy to get to by metro. A... More

I booked this hotel based on reviews on Trip Advisor. So glad we did! First things first....hotel was clean. That's usually my first concern. We had a red room and what's funny is I was hoping we wouldn't when I booked based on the pictures. It does look better, less dated, and not so overwhelming in person. The location was... More
