Hotel's Favorite
It was mine and my sisters first time in Paris and it took us a while to find a traditional Paris hotel which had the oldskool balcony windows but also offered a luxury rooms. Hotel Francois 1ER really did meet all of our needs, rooms were modern and extremely clean and not to mention was PERFECTLY situated and walking distance from all tourist attractions. Loved how convenient the hotel is situated and also in a nice and quite area too. Will defiantly be recommending the hotel and will be visiting again!!! Thank you to all at HOTEL FRANCOIS

I have been to many hotels in Paris and I can easily say that Francois 1er is one of my best stays so far. For first-time visitors to Paris, it has the best location: it's very close to the metro station Georges V and a few steps away from the famous busy Champs-Elysees. (Yet the hotel street was very calm, good for sleep and rest.) The lobby interiors are very cozy, French chic, as well as the rooms. I especially liked the marble bathroom with a large bathtub. The service is quite attentive and hospitable, where they serve you every day with chocolate treats and water bottles. I guess the owner is Lebanese, which may explain the many Arab clientele that stayed at the hotel. As for the breakfast, it is a little restraint, but it has all that you basically need. The only remark I would have is that the soundproofing is really bad. I could literally know which channel they were watching in the other room. At 1:00 am I even heard the alarm and luggage noises. It may be standard to have the same problem in other Parisian hotels, but here I felt it was paper-thin. But this detail stays minor comparing to all the other positive things about Francois 1er.

Dear Jimmy N, First of all thank you so much for having chosen our hotel for your Paris visit. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and liked the hotel and our staff. The owners of the hotel are French but depending on the vacations and long weekends of different countries we sometimes have lots of clients coming from the same country. We are very sorry for the noise that you heard from the room next to you. These old Parisian buildings are sometimes difficult to soundproof but as we are renovating our rooms at the moment we are adding new things that should help. We all wish you a wonderful Christmas time and hope to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards Alain Lagarrigue

2 min walk from Les Champs-Élysées you find this hotel. It's 4 stars and it deserve them. Good service, clean and good location. Because it's in a side street, you don't have much noise at night. If you want to be central, this is the place to be. No parking, so grab a UBER from the airport (45 EUR)
