First off, let me say the good things about this hotel. Cute little place in a FANTASTIC LOCATION. Walking distance to Champs Elysees, the Arc de Triomphe. We knew these things when we booked this particular hotel. That's why we chose it. The rooms were cute, old, but clean. Housekeeping opens the windows when they clean the rooms and the... More

Dear Guests, First of all thank you very much for having chosen our hotel for your stay in Paris. We deeply apologize for all the inconveniences! That week was a NIGHTMARE because of the AIR FRANCE STRIKE. We didn't know anymore where to send old & new clients because plenty of guests were desperate to stay and we weren't sure... More

I stayed there for a few nights, and the service was very bespoke and friendly. Rooms were big for Paris size and very comfortable indeed. Near George V station which is also convenient for the high end shops and Arc. Lost my phone and asked for a report by them when I got back to the UK, and they supplied... More

This has been my third visit to francois 1er. I've always loved how it's both minutes away from the busy atmosphere of champs elysees, and yet located in a quiet district for a good night's sleep. However, unlike my previous perfect stays, I'm not sure what's going on with the hotel recently. They have obviously changed their housekeeping staff in... More

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for being a regular guest of our hotel and for sharing your experience on the TripAdvisor. I am so extremely sorry for the maids behavior. We did have lots of extra personnel in May and June because some of our maids were in training. I have already informed the company and all of our... More

A very French hotel in the heart of the city. Location fantastic to ALL things. Restaurants on every corner. Right at the Arc de Triomphe and a romantic walk down the Champs Elysees. Sit at an outdoor cafe all day and watch the people! This hotel will make your trip!

...not only in Francia...anywhere. Great hotel, recently entirely rebuilt. Beware of the local sales tax, if you made a reservation through expedia or similar take your foreign passport ( and stamped customs form) with you, or you will be assessed the local sales tax ( this likely to avoid frances from buying in foreign sites and save the sales tax)....

Loved the location, easy walk. Really enjoyed the breakfast spread and the charming dining room. The wine was good. The room was clean, charming but very small. The location of the bathroom to the bed was extremely tight. That could also be my American expectation! The staff was very professional, courteous, efficient and helpful.

This place is just right for Paris .... reasonable price (for Paris) not over the top kind of place. A 5 star attitude with a boutique facility. Do you need more? Location: One block from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees on a very quiet street. So, quick walk to George V metro station, a few metro stops... More

I stayed two nights at Hotel Francois 1er and they could not have been nicer, more accommodating and helpful with whatever assistance I needed. The hotel is on a quiet street so no sounds heard from the very close Avenue George V nor the Champs-Elysees. For Paris, the rooms are perfectly sized, beautifully decorated, very comfortable beds, lovely bathrooms and... More

My wife and I had a Parisian honeymoon, and we stayed here on the last leg of our trip. It was a bit of a splurge for us, but well worth it! The staff was so welcoming and professional, and we felt they went the extra step to make our stay special. They even helped us put together a picnic... More
