The hotel was centrally placed in the heart of Paris. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and we were given an upgrade to a suite, which was fantastic. Our suite was very comfortable and quiet.

My fiancé stayed here for a 2nd time, and were very pleased with everything this charming hotel has to offer. We arrived on an overnight flight, and the staff really hustled to prepare our room so we could check-in early. The manager even invited us to enjoy a wonderful breakfast while we waited.

This hotel is in a great location in a quiet backstreet off the Champs Élysées. Very handy for the George V metro. Our room was spacious for Paris, with a well appointed bathroom with a large range of toiletries. Our bed was very comfy. The staff were attentive and friendly and very eager to please.

The food, the boutique size rooms and beautiful decor make it a wonderful choice. The service was courteous and on point. The geographical position of this hotel is super. The underground trains are 2 minutes walk. Famous stores and historical monuments are a short walk from this hotel. I will definitely go back. Thank you Francois 1er.

We visited Paris on our Honeymoon in July 2014, and chose this Hotel based on the reviews and the location (its right beside the Champs Elysees). The Property overall is pretty good, however the rooms are a bit small. The Bed is however cosy. Initially it felt that we were a bit unwelcome, however it became apparent that it is... More

Staying in Champs-Elysees

Neighborhood Profile
Champs-Elysees
This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive offices and presidential palaces; architecture from 19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.
