We really our 16 hours in Paris and spending our night at Hotel Francois was perfect. Great location (minutes from the Champs. George V) and lovely staff. Rooms are very French. I would be remiss if I didn't share the shower temp was extremely hard to modulate - either very cold or very hot - and the bed had me... More

The hotel is located just 5 min walking from Champs-Élysées and George 5 metro station. The hotel has a Classic Parisian design style and the room was absolutely gorgeous and fancy! The bathroom is quite large and just like the room is very fancy and clean. The buffet breakfast is very rich. Highly recommend

This is a great boutique hotel, all the staff are super friendly and helpful. Cosy feel to the place and well furnished, rooms are small but well laid out so don't feel small.

Stayed for 6 days and received the most personal, first class service I have experienced in a long time. The room was exceptionally appointed, the amenities were many and the location was perfect! Walk to many cafes, designer stores and the Champs-Elysees. Close to all, excellent access to taxis and public transportation. We will stay here again!

We stayed here in August 2016. The Hotel is easy to find, we took the train from CDG airport and came off Chatelet les Halles, changed onto yellow line, direction Le Defense and embarked at George V. You come out of the tube station and if you take the right exit you should be opposite the LIDO. Take the street... More

Unfortunately I only spent one night in this hotel, but everything was excellent. The attentive staff, the big room, the very comfortable bed. I surely will book this hotel in my following trips to Paris.

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.
