I have family in the 11th and stay in this hotel every time I visit. The hotel staff are always welcoming and this hotel has got to be Paris' best kept secret. The rooms are exactly as described, the hotel's location is excellent, near to a Metro and very well connected to central Paris and all the sights. The 11th is a safe residential area with local shops and restaurants and a typical French Street Market every Wednesday and Saturday on Boulevard de Charonne (short walk away)

Stayed here for 2 nights for my wife’s birthday. What a lovely little hotel, the staff are amazing and made us feel very welcome, it is in a great location, if you like walking you can walk all the way in to Paris seeing so many sights along the way, or the metro is literally in your doorstep, 15 mins away on the 9 route to the Eiffel Tower. The rooms were small but very comfortable and it was nice to be welcomed on both evenings to share a nice glass of french wine and nibbles provided by the staff. The staff were always on hand to offer recommendations for places. Thank you for making our stay such a memorable one. Will definitely stay here again.

I found the hotel through recommendation on the leading websites. Overall, the hotel was very good and met our expectations. It was clean, comfortable but most importantly the location is ideal for accessing the metro at Place de Nation which links with all of Paris. I would recommend the hotel. My only negative comment is that the lift is not modern and very slow

This is our second visit to the Grand Hotel Francais and it remains as good as ever! A lovely hotel in a quiet residential area, a wide choice of restaurants nearby and close to Nation. Our room was great, yes it was small but that's the same in all cities. The view overlooking Boulevard Voltaire is worth it plus an amazing breakfast, rare in Paris! The staff are wonderful, very friendly and polite which is why we will always return to this hotel. Thanks again to all the staff :)

We stayed here recently and my girlfriend wasn't well at all. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. They were attentive, caring and super helpful. Luckily they spoke English well and made our stay pleasant. We haven't been welcomed to a hotel as well as we were and I couldn't recommend this hotel more due to the staff. The location is good close to many good restaurants and there is a supermarket across the road. The Metro is also extremely close. Thank you to the staff once more, making a cup of tea for us on the last day when checking out was so lovely too. The staff are fantastic.
