“"Nice Hotel with Helpful Staff"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We had a corner room with balcony, aside from many rainy days, this would be an ideal stay. The staff (especially front desk) was very helpful (english speaking). The Metro is only steps away so all of Paris is nearby.

My husband booked this trip as a surprise and what a surprise!!! we stayed for 3 nights at the end of August. Very close to rail links and after a short walk (10 mins) from nation station we arrived at hotel. Hotel is very Parisienne and absolutely gorgeous, rooms were small but lovely, shower was fab and bed very comfortable. It was during a heat wave when we were there so the air con was a blessing coming back in to a lovely cool room after a day of sightseeing! Breakfast was lovely and plenty to choose from. Staff were very attentive and very helpful, the receptionist recommended a beautiful bistro to go to for dinner just a short walk from the hotel (au p'tit panisse) very French and absolutely stunning and reasonably priced. We had a fantastic time here and would definitely recommend this hotel and will be returning in the near future.

Great hotel , a little of the tourist trap but easy walk to metro then everything is so close. Lovely staff great breakfast and our room number 53 was lovely and bright. Recommend to all travellers. And a lovely little sushi restaurant just a minute down from the hotel served great food and was reasonably priced for Paris. Good WiFi and u can use the hotels laptop if your stuck. Plus they done our washing for us free of charge. The only hotel I have ever come across to do this. Thank you it was a blessing.

Loved this neighborhood - few tourists and lots of interesting ethnic cafes and restaurants. Plus the easy access to 2 metro lines. The hotel is small as are the rooms, but they are beautifully outfitted and the bathrooms are very modern. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast offered plenty of options for a continental breakfast - a great start to the day. For those who are considering traveling to the hotel by train - the Metro stop at Nation does have an elevator so that the trip from Gare de Lyon on line RER A, with our bags was easy - elevators and escalators all the way and then a 7-10 minute walk to the hotel.

stayed at this hotel 4 nights. other reviews say it all. just remember when they say small room they mean small. place was very clean. staff extremely helpful. what has not been said on the reviews is that if you give them some laundry to do in the morning the will give you back your clean clothes on your return at no extra cost. this was fabulous since we had been travelling for a few weeks. good service.

We visited Paris for a long weekend in October 2012, and booked a room at Grand Hotel Francais based on the great reviews it had on TripAdvisor. We were very impressed with the hotel and staff! The location is great - close enough to good nightlife etc, and also very close to a Metro station, meaning it is very easy to get to the main Paris attractions.

The staff were all very helpful, and spoke very good English, and were happy to make recommendations etc when asked. The rooms were clean and comfortable, not huge but certainly big enough for two people for a weekend. The rooms also had free, unlimited Wifi, which we really appreciated as it meant we could look online for things to see and do, places to eat etc.

I really enjoyed our stay in Grand Hotel Francais, and would certainly stay there again.

We stayed at the hotel October 12-16. The hotel was within a reasonable distance from Gare d'Est, so the Taxi ride to the hotel was a reasonable 12.50 Euros. Getting around Paris from this hotel is easy as the hotel is convenient to two metro stops. The hotel rooms are small, but this is the norm in Paris. The room and nits bath were spotless, and the service was excellent. Everyone at the front desk was helpful, and answered questions accurately. I have been to Paris over 30 times, and I found that this hotel has to be one of the best values in its category as breakfast was included in our rate. We have stayed at some of the larger higher priced hotels in the past, but we stay at the Grand Hotel Francais again. The quality of the accommodations and service at the Grand Hotel Francais is superb.
