This is our regular place to stay when we are in Paris. Easy to reach from Gare du Nord - we always travel to Paris on Eurostar - just change at Republique for Rue des Boulets…then a short walk to the hotel…you can even buy Metro tickets on the Eurostar train from the buffet car……why can't you buy London Tube tickets when going from Paris to London???? I reckon it's 'cos Boris Johnson is embarrassed that London Tube tickets cost nearly 3 times the price of Paris metro ticket!!!!
Grand Hotel Francais is very handy for Gare de Lyon…and we were travelling on to Annecy from there ( a wonderful place to visit - Lake Annecy is stunning).
The staff at the hotel were, as ever very welcoming….as it was our wedding anniversary on the day we arrived …they kindly upgraded us…..and what a lovely room it was! - room 41 - extremely comfortable bed with a super breakfast the next morning - the waitress refilled any of the breakfast items that ran down toute suite!!!
The hotel is near some really nice eating places…we had our wedding anniversary dinner in Chez Mamy - our favourite restaurant.
We also stayed at Grand Hotel Francais on our way back from Annecy….not far from the hotel is a little supermarket where you can pick up provisions for a picnic lunch - we went to The Tuileries gardens for ours!….we always enjoy the Baton Mouches boat trip down the Seine and we found a stunning view of The Eiffel Tower at The Trocadero. Dinner that night was at Les Cocottes not far from the Pont d'Alma.
A really lovely time was had in Paris and a very reliable hotel like Grand Hotel Francais certainly helps to make it so!!!!
