Stayed twice in last month. One room was smaller than other but both were adequate. They were very clean and beds were comfortable. The rooms appear to have had recent updates with stylish bathrooms. The hotel is very near a Metro station and the staff could not have been more cheerful and helpful.The fact that the hotel is small as well provided a more personal approach from the staff. Their fluency in English was also much appreciated.
Excellent value for money

Our room was very small, but we didn't have much luggage and only stayed one night. If you stay longer or have big suitcases etc. you should book a Superior Room.

The hotel is newly renovated, everything is in a very good condition and clean. Comfortable bed, good shower, free fast internet and coffee/tea-making facilities in room which is a nice bonus and not often found in hotels in France.

Close to the "Gare de Lyon" (2 métro stops) and within a short walking distance to métro stop "Nation" from where you can easily get into the center of Paris;

Friendly and helpful staff.

All in all a good place to stay and good value for your money.

Room Tip: If you have a lot of luggage or plan to stay longer, opt for a superior room.

Stayed one night only. Location is a bit away from the centre of Paris, being to the east near Nation station, but everywhere can be easily accessed by train. The hotel is small, though well decorated and the service was very good. We had a late flight out and they let us come back late and gave us free coffee.
Rooms are modern but a bit small if you are not used to Parisian sizes. Yet it had all needed amenities incl a safe. Breakfast a bit limited but okay. Just watch your head going down the stairs to the breakfast room.

Room Tip: Get a superior room.

This hotel looks like a chain like Thistle. Our room was small and a bit airless (window was high, small and barred) but clean, safe and modern with a great shower. We paid for a 137 euro night room for two people and got up-graded to a deluxe room on arrival. Hotel is easy to find and near to a tube station. Staff were welcoming and spoke English. Breakfast was good - nice spread of French food (croissants, bread and cheese!). Nice touches included free wine and chocolate eggs as welcome Easter treat.

We would recommend this hotel "Le Grand Hotel Francais" to anyone who is going Paris. This modest hotel is ranked 19th out of all the hotels at Tripadvisor (as corrected in May 2011 when we booked)! Four Seasons, rooms starting from 879euros per night, is ranked 15th! So glad we secured the last superior double room on venere.com the day we left Singapore (may 2011). Quite last minute. Around 130euros per night for superior double room, this is quite a bargain for a nice room, good location to 2 train stations (one just next door, the other major station is 5mins away). Easy to get anywhere or to Gare de Lyon train station (we came from Nice) or the airport. Quiet but safe residential neighbourhood and best of all, the friendly staff.

The room is very small but adequate and modern. There's a ipod dock too. The bed is queen and not king.. abit small..We asked the hotel staff to help us print the Eiffel tower and later the Disneyland tickets. And it was done in a second with a smile. We were always greeted warmly whenever we passed by the reception! Free wifi too! This was better than staying at those hugh hotel chains. We had a room (to sure to ask for one) with a balcony. It's really lovely to people watch there.

There's really a very nice patissier next door to the hotel. Do try out the nice French bread and pastries! And plently of french bistros (a nice Thai resturant too).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with Balcony!
