I stayed at the property in a triple room in early November for 4 nights in Paris. The hotel was very quiet being in the off season, but I loved my stay. The room was large enough for three, and the breakfast was superb. It is located around the corner from the Champs Elysee which allowed ample walking to all...

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.

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.
