I stayed at this hotel for a short romantic weekend break and the hotel didn't fail to deliver. This is a classic grinch boutique hotel with romantic classic decor, the service was impeccable and we were both very comfortable. The bed was a dream, we got bath robes and slippers and lovely toiletries. It was a very comfortable stay overall.

It was the same room as in the main picture. The breakfast was well presented and plenty of choice. Only stayed one...

Spent the night in room 307. Nothing short of perfect! Staff is very kind and the barman makes a great Dry Martini (I recommend!). Complete the experience with a nice breakfast in the morning, and you'll see why the François 1er is my favourite stay in Paris.
