We came to The Grand Hotel Francais only for 4 nights. It stays in the Ideal neighborhood, right in center of Paris. It is near many cafes, bistros, groceries stores and metro stations which makes it perfect to our trip. Manager of hotel, Zyad and also other staff are the most helpful people i know. They are very informative and...

We had a good one-night stay here, the last night of our Europe trip and our 8-year wedding anniversary. The room was nice, if small, with two cute little balconies. There was parking (expensive, but hey, it's Paris) nearby for our car. Great little neighborhood. Ok Metro access (though not at your doorstep). We didn't think that much of the...

My husband and I live in London and travel to Paris two or three times a year for leisure. Since discovering the Grand Hotel Francais in November 2008, we've stayed nowhere else in Paris. Zyad is the most gracious hotelier, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and we love exploring the 11th, with food hotspots on the rue Paul Bert...

We booked this hotel to bookend arriving and departing for a couple of weeks we were in France for a wedding. It was very highly recommended by others on TripAdvisor. We totally second the motion.

The room was very, very clean. I am very sensitive about smells, but I had no problems with this hotel. The bathroom was tiny but very clean and modern as well. My only issue was the size of the room, but I think that this is pretty typical in Paris. The staff was also very helpful. They had maps of...

We thoroughly enjoyed our 7 night stay at this hotel. The staff members were friendly and eager to help, and room was clean and comfortable. The furnishings were modern and cool, and made good use of the small space. We never felt cramped and we had ample storage for our belongings. The bed and bathroom were fantastic--much nicer than you...

We stayed one night after getting off the redeye from Boston. Front desk extremely helpful. Rooms small (but fairly good sized by Paris standards), newly renovated and clean. Breakfast was included, and was good. Short (5 minute) walk to train station (Nation) which is a Metro and RER hub. A good value.

We looked at the TripAdvisor reviews and selected this hotel as a result. It was certainly a very good choice. The room was clean, well serviced and the staff very welcoming. A good breakfast was included and the hotel was very close to the Rue des Boulets metro station. The hotel booked restaurants for us...La Cordonniere and Pramil - both...
