As the name suggests- Grand hotel. Looks Grand yet cosy and comfortable. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very close to the metro (3mins by walk from stop- Rue des Boulets and 5mins by walk from stop-Nation) and bus stop. Breakfast was decent.

We stayed here for 2 nights, then traveled to northern France, and returned for 2 more nights later in the week. A very pleasant experience, from the helpful, friendly staff, to the clean rooms and very nice breakfast (for a small additional fee). Both of our rooms were lovely, but on our last 2 nights we were given a corner...

We enjoyed our one-night stay at the Grand Hotel Français. The rooms are on the small side (perhaps not for Paris), but they are nicely furnished and the beds are very comfortable. The front desk staff were very friendly. There is a small lobby where you can grab a glass of wine in the evening. The area has lots of...

Front desk people are very nice, helpful and corteous. The gentleman in the front desk even gave us a bowl of peanuts when we were looking for food past midnight. Located close to metro station. Located near good restaurants and quick eateries.

The fab thing about this hotel is location and we stayed here for 2 nights. It is very near to Metro Station - Nation. It takes close to 7 mins walk from the metro.

I am surprised this hotel is 3 stars. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They arranged for taxis but also they were very informed about Paris. I was able to get my Paris pass at the desk and it came the same day. The room I stayed in was small but it was very lovely and comfortable. Also the...
