On first impressions the hotel fransior has an old beautiful French charm. Our room was beautiful, clean and had a very comfortable bed. With an old building not everything is perfect, I.e. the hot water is not consistent; takes ages to heat up and it was either too hot or too cold when having a shower. The walls are thin, you can hear the water being turned on and off from other rooms and people being loud outside, you can also hear a lot of outside noise in the room as well.

The buffet breakfast was the best out of all my hotels through my 6week Europe trip. The breakfast staff were very attentive and helpful.

The front desk/ concierge were very nice, however there needs to be two of them. In terms of tourist info such as tours or things to do, the service was really bad compared to other hotels I've stayed at where brochures and recommendations were given. The front desk were very helpful though and when they had time provided really good customer service.

There were lots of things I liked but also things that I didn't, so mixed review. If something else was not available I would stay here again, but I do think it is overpriced for what you get.

I'm lucky to travel the world on business and I stay in some nice hotels. This is no grand business hotel, but was a perfect small hotel for our weekend break in Paris. Great location with Metro, shops, bars, restaurants within a 5 min walk. Hotel was spotlessly clean, public areas and bedroom of a very high standard, staff were polite and caring, breakfast was good.....what more ?. Price was a little high, so all of the above should be expected, still it was value for money and we would happily return.

Great location about 1 minute walk to Louis Vuitton, Armani, Hermes and others. Great eating very close and and great breakfast downstairs. Very boutiqueish type hotel. Staff was wonderful. Ate around the corner at the Four Seasons a few times. I thought it was more "Paris" than the Four Seasons which was nice but was just a big crowded hotel. Will easily go back!!!

This hotel is located near Arch de Triumph, close to Champs Elysees and walk distance to Madeleine area. The rooms are quite small but comfortable.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights on recent trip through Europe. The staff was friendly and professional. The room, while small, was clean and beautifully decorated. The location is fabulous and convenient to the subway. We would definitely stay here again.
