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.

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
