“Perfect for a short break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I agree with all of the other reviews about this hotel, I stayed there with my wife during the weekend trip to Paris. We both found the hotel very clean, extremely well run with friendly helpful staff. As the other reviews say the rooms are on the smaller size but I think that's a characteristic of Paris.

The location is excellent, especially for going out for dinner during the evening with good places to eat very close to the hotel, the hotel reception gave us a very good list of places to eat of offering a good standard of food and very friendly.

Trip adviser was correct yet again on this place. Very very friendly and full of useful advice, lovely clean rooms, Restaurants they suggest are excellent and well worth visiting. Get lunch as Prosper. It's a great location and easy to get Metro to all sites or a good walk if you are up for it to places like Notre Dame and Left Bank etc.

Lovely room with the most incredible bathroom - sp119518901 arkly wall and ceiling lights and multi-coloured lights in the shower head. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The hotel is in a great location with plenty of local restaurants, patisseries etc. Usefully only a 5 minute walk to the Nation metro stop, which is on Line 1 and RER A which take you to all the main tourist locations. The staff are very friendly, speak excellent English, and are exceptionally helpful, recommending and booking restaurants etc. Nice area - felt perfectly safe walking around at night. Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent hotel with beautifully refurbished rooms.Our mini fridge was not working when we arrived.Was changed within the hour and we had chocolates and wine waiting for us when we returned from our evening meal.We were then upgraded to to a to a prestige room the next day.
Zyad speaks perfect English and has a wonderful sense of humor.
He gave us a list of restaurants within a ten minute walk.We ate at Bistro Paul Bert and had an excellent meal.Set meal 37 Euros scallops,beef,sweet.
The breakfast is served in the basement and is self service but everything is spot on.Cereals,meats, eggs,yoghurts,fruit salad,fresh orange,assorted pastries.
Metro rue Boulets two minutes took us to Grand Boulevards to Chartier which is a cheapo restaurant with a brilliant atmosphere. Alan Garner

Room Tip: Most rooms small but Prestige rooms are perfect.

Excellent hotel. The room was very clean and had everything in it we needed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were close to a metro station which took us to Bastille, but we also walked into the city centre a couple of time which took us about half an hour. I would highly recommend this hotel for its location, cleanliness and friendliness.

Stayed here one night and it was great. The day reception staf is amazing -fluent English and extremely friendly. This hotel is located near a lot of restaurants and bars that are around the corner so this hotel is still quiet. It is located near two metro stops - Nation and Rue des Boulets which are both one block from the hotel (either way you turn left or right from the hotel there is a metro stop).

Stayed for the second time at the Grand hotel Francais and the experience was again memorable! It dind't take me much time at all to get to center as the hotel is located withing a few yards of a metro stop. I had a very nice room with everything I needed...the breakfast is excellent with fresh products and much better that in some 4 star hotels in Paris.
The service is what really makes this hotel so special...all my questions and requests were answered with a smile...I highly recommend this hotel.
