“Excellent well located hotel”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Excellent hotel. The room was very clean and had everything in it we needed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were close to a metro station which took us to Bastille, but we also walked into the city centre a couple of time which took us about half an hour. I would highly recommend this hotel for its location, cleanliness and friendliness.

Stayed here one night and it was great. The day reception staf is amazing -fluent English and extremely friendly. This hotel is located near a lot of restaurants and bars that are around the corner so this hotel is still quiet. It is located near two metro stops - Nation and Rue des Boulets which are both one block from the hotel (either way you turn left or right from the hotel there is a metro stop).

Stayed for the second time at the Grand hotel Francais and the experience was again memorable! It dind't take me much time at all to get to center as the hotel is located withing a few yards of a metro stop. I had a very nice room with everything I needed...the breakfast is excellent with fresh products and much better that in some 4 star hotels in Paris.
The service is what really makes this hotel so special...all my questions and requests were answered with a smile...I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel really exceeded my expectation. We were welcomed by a very friendly and helpful staff who offered so much helpful information on transporation, restaurants, and other. When we got to our room, we were surprised at how nice our room was. It was better than we've seen in pictures. It was clean, chic and modern. The only thing I did not like is the art on the wall over our head. I didn't care for it but it's a very minor thing. The room smelled fresh. The pillows and blanket were so comfortable. I did not hear any noise during our stay. We slept so good all throughout. The bathroom ws clean and updated. It was within short walking distance to the nearest subway station. The breakfast came with our hotel deal. For the value, the breakfast was very good. The breakfast attendants were very pleasant and nice too. Again, the staff was just absolutely amazing. I would definitely come back to this hotel again.

we stayed at this hotel as a surprise birthday trip to paris for my husband. i had emailed the hotel prior to arrival and their response was always swift. on arrival we were shown to an excellent room on the top floor with a balcony and view over the street, very parisian. the manager had put complementary chocolates and wine in the room for my husband. brilliant! the room was clean, enough space for the two of us. there were plenty of fluffy towels and toiletries and the shower was a dream. the bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. we even had a settee, two chairs and a coffee table. more than enough space for our clothes in the drawers and wardrobe. very friendly, helpful staff and an excellent breakfast rounded off a lovely weekend. thank you grand hotel francais.

I recently spent 2 nights at the Grand Hotel Francais with my wife and 3 year old daughter. It was great. This is a small hotel in one of Paris' hype up-and-coming districts. There are loads of fantastic dining options within a 5 minute walking distance radius of the hotel's doorstep. The first evening we went to a fab wine bar (VinoTK). The owner is passionate about French wines, obviously very savvy and loves sharing this with his customers, he selected superb wines for us. That evening we dined in the restaurant right next door (Pozada) which serves typical French bistrot dishes at reasonable prices. Both places were child-friendly. The following evening we ate at Le Panisse in Rue de Montreuil, a five minute ramble from the hotel (after stopping by for a glass of wine at the VinoTK :). Our stay at the Grand Hotel Francais was perfect. We had been well advised upon booking that the surface area of the rooms is standard Parisian, which means not huge... but this was fine, even the baby cot fitted in the room fine. We had a room right under the roof top with charming views over the Paris roof tops. In-room amenities included tea and coffee making facilities which are always welcome! The room was nicely furnished and spotlessly clean! The staff is great and knowlegeable about Paris and the hotel's district. The front desk staff provided all the great dining recommendations, thank you. We had breakfast included in our rate and it was a wholesome selection of warm and cold buffet elements. Everything was just right and I would highly recommend staying here. Paris unfolds at your feet and the metro Rue des Boulets is at the hotel doorstep!

Room Tip: I enjoyed my room on the last floor under the roof-top, it had a nice view over the Parisian roof-to...

I have stayed a number of times in this property while on business and I can say this hotel ticks lots of boxes: clean, comfortable, nice welcome, good location with metro close by, and of course lots of good restaurant at great prices.
This is great value for money and certainly no hesitation recommending it...
