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

This is an upscale boutique hotel with immaculate touches of French deco. Location is prime to many attractions as well as easy access to the metro. Upon check in they were overbooked and had to send me to a sister hotel that was very close but made up for it with an upgrade to an Executive room, free champagne, speedy... More

This boutique hotel was just what I was looking for. On a quiet street near the Champs E. , the Hotel Francois has charm, beautiful interior, and exceptional service. The rooms were generous, the bathrooms full of top notch toiletries, and the breakfast buffet filled with scrumptious offerings. I cannot compliment the staff enough. The front desk was helpful with... More
