“Very comfortable boutique hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

NJust next to Champs Elysees and Avenue Georges V,this small,intimate boutique hotel is a true value for money.Small but beautifully appointed rooms,good breakfast,prompt service make it a reasonable solution in a very expensive city.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

This is a wonderful boutique hotel on a very quiet street just steps away from the champs élysées and a Metro stop. The staff was friendly, efficient, and very service oriented. I loved the small elevator decorated like it was a library filled with old classic books. The public areas (for sitting, getting a drink, or eating breakfast) were comfortable and relaxing. My room had everything I needed, and was a great place to relax after days of meetings. I will recommend this wonderful boutique hotel to people who travel to Paris on business or for pleasure.

It will be very difficult to do much better for the price point in Paris. This is a well appointed small boutique in the very heart of the high rent district. It has tasteful furnishings, a cozy environment, excellent and friendly service, and rooms that present a classic Parisian look but still manage to look fresh. The common areas and my room compared well to the Sofitel Arc de Triomphe. It was smaller, and came at a lower price. A lovely place and an enjoyable stay.

I love this small charming hotel just of champs élysées. It has got charming small rooms but the best out of it is the service. All the staff takes a pride to provide me with the highest quality of care. Also very, very good breakfast. Will be staying there again. 5-10 min walk to arc the triumph

This really is a great hotel.

It is quite small, a few dozen rooms.

A townhouse hotel type.

The staff are friendly, the rooms are cosy, our bedroom was really nice.

Breakfast was a treat, such friendly staff & a good spread of food.

You step out into the heart of Paris yet at night, it was quiet in the room.

Really, a very very good place to stay.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are great.

Location is great, just a block away from George V metro station on Champs Elysees. Our room was small, but that is normal in Paris. It was very clean and well equipped: bath gown, hair drier, mini bar, room service... The reception called cabs, reserved restaurant for us, they were helpful and friendly. A good choice of breakfast also.
Two things to watch: air condition or heating is rather noisy and it was not heating well the room, especially the first day was cold. There was a noise of ventilation in the bathroom all night, even with the AC turned off, a bit annoying.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room on the upper levels, make sure AC works weel and quietly.

Firstly - I travel the world (avg 150,000 air-miles per year) staying in many of the best 5 Star hotels such as Raffles, Mandarin etc these hotels are great and super luxury with good service, but you pay for it. Now consider the following if your not expensing the trip on your corporate account:-

Francois 1er has a first class location, fabulous staff. Short walk to ave champs élysées and great high end shopping. 20 min stroll to the Eiffel Tower. Safe neighbourhood at night, great restaurants near by, (take the recommendations from the hotel staff and let them make the reservations for you). Clean comfortable romantic rooms, with nice bathrooms and quality soft furnishings. If you decide to stay in 5 star hotel I doubt very much that the service could be any better! Save your cash for nice meals and designer shopping and book this place!
