We just got back from Paris and a three night stay at Hotel Francois Premier. This is one of the friendliest hotels we have stayed at in Paris. When we arrived our room wasn't ready yet (we were there early in the morning) and they offered to feed us breakfast. After giving us maps we headed out for the day.... More

This beautiful hotel, located in a great area on a quiet street is a real gem. We arrived early morning after an 11 hour flight. Ashmi, the hotel manager greeted us warmly. Although check in was only at 2 pm, Ashmi made us understand he would do whatever he could to give us a room as soon as possible. We... More

We went to stay two nights and without even asking we got upgraded from our standard room for our second night by the extremely helpful staff and a complimentary bottle of champagne was provided.Location great and a surprisingly good breakfast.

Great location if you wanna be in that area. Cozy feeling. The breakfast was nice and relaxed. On check in it was a mix up with the room, no twin beeds, so instead we were - without any fuzz -given two rooms instead of one. All in all: great relaxed service.

This hotel is located just 2mins walk from Champ Elysees and has nice décor. Unfortunately, it ends there. We paid extra for the bigger room as we read that their rooms are small. Despite the upgrade, the bathroom was exceptionally tiny even for my 5 years old child. Shower was bad as the water temperature fluctuate from super hot to... More

I stayed here for one night in November 2013. The hotel is just off the Champs Elysees and the metro George V so plenty of things to do around there and plenty of shops and restaurants and bars and cafes. However, the hotel is on a quiet and peaceful street so there was no noise. The room was nice and... More

We spent our 6 nights New Year vacation in this hotel and these are my pros and cons: Pros: Perfect location - 2 min. walk from Champs Elysees and metro station George V. Nice boutique hotel, fairly clean rooms, good decor and ambience. Breakfast was very good (caviar, salmon, surimi, good choices of cheese and meat...) Nicolas at the front... More

My fiance and I stayed at this hotel in February last year and had an absolutely wonderful stay at this hotel. The decor is stunning; the lifts are made to look like an old library!
