This boutique hotel was just what I was looking for. On a quiet street near the Champs E. , the Hotel Francois has charm, beautiful interior, and exceptional service. The rooms were generous, the bathrooms full of top notch toiletries, and the breakfast buffet filled with scrumptious offerings. I cannot compliment the staff enough. The front desk was helpful with taxi service, restaurant recommendations and even had a left-behind pair of eyeglasses shipped to me after I checked out. Housekeeping did a great job too. This will be my go-to hotel in Paris.
Thank you all at Hotel Francois! You are the best.

Hotel Francois 1ER 7, rue de Magellan, Paris, France

We have just returned from an 8 night stay in the beautiful Francois 1ER on Rue Magellan in Paris. We had an Executive Room with a king size bed on the 3rd floor. Breakfast was in the beautifully appointed bottom floor room with hot tea or coffee and pastries, fruit, cereal, etc.

We loved the location of this hotel right off the Champs Elysees and close to the George V Metro stop. What we loved most about this hotel was the small intimate atmosphere. The concierge always greeted us by name whenever we entered or exited the hotel, helped us with dinner reservations and suggestions for sightseeing & transportation. There is a small room with a computer and printer for guests use. Also there is a bar and 2 living areas for guests to use. The staff always made us feel welcome and taken care of. We would definitely stay here on future trips to Paris. Charming, friendly and beautiful small hotel in a lovely area of Paris.

Room Tip: Our room was # 304. A lovely, quiet room with a king size bed.

We stayed at this hotel last year for a family birthday.

The rooms were rather average nothing very special or luxurious about them.

My mother was running a bath and the whole bathroom flooded due to a leak the hotel insisted the room would be fine if they could clean up the mess this was totally not acceptable. Thus after much deliberation from the hotel my parents waited for over an hour to get a different room!

The breakfast was poor and service throughout the hotel was not at all what you would expect from a 2* hotel let alone a 4* hotel.

My mothers shoes were taken from her room we do not know who took them, whether it was a cleaner or another member of staff from the hotel yet nothing was done about this.

We will not be staying in this hotel again and I would highly advise people to stay away.

Dear Guest,

Unfortunately we have no record of a stay with these incidents in the Francois 1er. Could you kindly check that you chose the correct hotel to write this view. We also contacted TripAdvisor to tell them that this doesn't concern us if you could post it to the right place. We thank you kindly.

Have a wonderful summer.

My wife and I spent 4 nights here for our 10th Anniversary. I would really recommend this small, slightly expensive but really convenient hotel. Being just 2 minutes walk from the metro makes this an ideal place from which to explore Paris.

The breakfast was very good and included in the price we paid. The staff weer very attentive, especially the barman, who always had time for a few welcoming words.

I would say that the room (403) that we stayed in could do with a little make over (just a few tatty marks etc), however the facilities were fine.

All in all, a good place to put down your weary head.

Room Tip: Choose the highest floor you can, as there is some road noise early morning like most big cities.

Dear Guests,

Thank you so much for having stayed with us and shared your experience on TripAdvisor.
We have good news for you. All the rooms with a 3 like 403 will be extierely redecorated starting this summer. Our interior designer Pierre Yves ROCHON has created fantastic new style for those rooms. We'd be happy to welcome you next time!

Have a great summer!

I would definitely stay here again even though the view is non-existent. The location is very good... Just off the Champs Elysees, and the service is very good; so is the breakfast. And the price is much better than the big-name hotels.

Provided you can do without a great view, but still in a great location, this is a very good choice. And the service is as good as you will find in any 5-star hotel.
