We recently spent 4 nights at this fantastic hotel. Located a 10 minute walk from Nation RER station or 1 minute walk from Rue des Boulets metro station it is easily accesible by public transport. The number 56 bus also stops almost outside. Upon arrival we were greeted by a wonderful receptionist who was friendly, helpful and humourous. We were... More

We recently returned from Grand Hotel Francais. It is a good hotel in a good location with excellent links to central Paris. The real bonus with this hotel are the staff in Reception, and the Owner/Manager. We had a personal problem while we were staying there but we received exceptional assistance from everyone, and could then resume enjoying our holiday.... More

We were overwhelmed by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff at this hotel. Vanessa and Zyad could not have done more for us. Their knowledge and ideas for sightseeing and eating out were very considered. They also helpfully gave us a local map with great bistros on it. We are real foodies and they were super eating places. We... More

All I can say is WOW! This hotel may be rated 3 stars, but the service, warmth, and comfort is all 5 star. Vanessa at the front desk makes this hotel so incredible. She is so sweet, professional and extremely knowledgable. We were so impressed with Vanessa that we will be back because of her. Message to the owner, please... More

Small but very clean and tidy rooms, excellent location (nation metro station), close to franprix and pharmacy. Delicious bakery nearby with perfect croissants and tarts, and cute little bistros. Kind personnel and manager. Recommendation!

There are 2 things I look for in a hotel: good location, and helpfulness of the staff. The first I find by consulting a good map; the second by reading hotel reviews. Since every hotel in Paris is within a few minutes walk of a Metro stop, location was not an issue here. So the decision hinged on the reviews... More

Loved this hotel!! Staff were welcoming and friendly, the room was very clean and modern. It was small but we did not come to Paris to hang in our room. The metro is a brief walk, there is dining in the area which the hotel staff recommended. They even made our arrangements to leave on our last day! Perfect Paris... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night. The room was small by north american standards but very clean and cosy. The bathroom was newly renovated and modern. Reasonably priced. The area was ok near the metro.
