A true Parisian experience, wake up to the smell of fresh croissants, the location can't be beat. Beautiful linens, impeccable service. Your rooms are so gorgeous you don't want to leave! Tucked away one block from the famous Champs Elysees , shopping awaits, cafes and fresh bread.

When you book a hotel room in another country you are never quite sure what you will find when you arrive. My husband and I were very pleased when we checked into Hotel Francois 1er as it had immense French charm and an incredible location. We were about a five minute walk from all of the elegant shops and cafes... More

The moment we walked into the Hotel, we were very impressed with it's ambience which is elegant, tasteful, clean & welcoming. You couldn't have a more kind & helpful concierge. Our air-conditioned room was spacious enough for a short stay with a modern bathroom & ample wardrobe space incorporating a mini safe. The overall decoration is stylish & not overpowering.... More

... which is just a few blocks away. The common areas although similar feel a bit upscale as does the breakfast area with white tablecloth service. The hotel is situated close enough to the Seine and Champs Elyesses for ease of transit yet far enough away for a bit of quiet.

I went on a spontaneous trip to Paris. First time staying at Francois 1er, and funnily enough it took me forever to hover around my usual Parisian neighbourhood the Golden Triangle to find it! Location is wonderful - moments away from the Four Seasons and needless to mention Avenue George V/ Montaigne for designer shopping. Good restaurants are nearby or... More

What can I say? This hotel was perfect in every way. Location? Check? Food? Check? Hospitality? A hidden gem I cannot wait to visit again. No complaints. Breakfast each morning was a treat and whatever we needed they arranged. From dinner suggestions to a taxi on the spot nothing was too difficult. It is small, intimate and you will recognize...

The Hotel Francois 1er is a fabulous, elegant & charming small hotel, just off the Champs Elysees. From the moment you sit at the reception desk (an actual desk!), you know that you will receive personal service and consideration. The regular rooms are the usual Paris size, but so lovely and lushly appointed. Treat yourself to a suite, if you... More

The hotel is fantastic. Accommodations were clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and even accommodated a very early check in as I was flying in overnight from the US so I could shower before heading to the office.
