We stayed at the Grand Hotel Francais for 4 nights, hotel was ideal for a good city break. The room was great and the bed/pillows helped after a hectic day round paris. 50 min walk into the main part of Paris or use the tube only 5 mins away. Walk that's you along the main road into paris, great way... More

A clean and comfortable hotel and well located for exploring Paris. Very close to the metro, it was easy to get around. I was keen to visit as many art galleries/museums as possible as well as sight seeing. The hotel was well placed for this.

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in! The bed, pillows, comforter: amazing. The view - breathtaking. Vanessa at the front desk was more than helpful booking our transportation, dinner reservations, attractions, directions; you name it. There is a sweet lobby with a bar to enjoy a sip and the calm. The rooms are small for "American... More

very handy for both bus and metro. Staff pleasant and helpful. My husband and I wouldn't hesitate to return to this hotel and can certainly recommend it especially for people in our age group which is mid 70s. The lift was an added bonus after a busy day

Zyad was extremely friendly and accommodating. He went out of his way to help us with some travel assistance that we required. Small, quaint hotel and rooms. Clean and nicely decorated. On a main road with plenty to eat nearby, and close to the metro.

With a Metro extremely close and easy to find as well as helpful staff, the Grand Hotel François a great central base for a Paris stay. The atmosphere was excellent and gave you an accurate sense of Parisian living.

The hotel is on the boulevard Voltaire but you can have a quiet room! Very charming. The rooms aren't that big but really comfortable! The staff in the hotel is really friendly and is working to give your stay an unforgettable touch! We've enjoyed it very very much. The room has cooling and you have a superb free WIFI!

Hotel is at good location with average facilities and small rooms. Hotel receptionist (name I forgotten) is very accommodating & guide us about all sightseeing and metro. Rooms are very-very small, if she didn't upgrade our room it will be like match box. If you accommodate in the room size then all other things & reception persons are very accommodating.
