“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Loved the location, easy walk. Really enjoyed the breakfast spread and the charming dining room. The wine was good. The room was clean, charming but very small. The location of the bathroom to the bed was extremely tight. That could also be my American expectation! The staff was very professional, courteous, efficient and helpful.

This place is just right for Paris .... reasonable price (for Paris) not over the top kind of place. A 5 star attitude with a boutique facility. Do you need more?

Location: One block from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs Elysees on a very quiet street. So, quick walk to George V metro station, a few metro stops to center of Paris, less than 2 euro per ride. We took the Air France Le Car bus #2 from CDG airport, quick (< 1 hr.) and easy. Easy walk to Eiffel tower and military museum across the river.
Facility: Clean! small quiet modern room. Bar next to lobby was under repair, did not use, did not eat there either, geez so many places around for short walk.
Service: Friendly greeting, complementary drink on arrival, apologies for noise of construction which was not noisy, room was ready when we arrived (needed nap after flight), even the maids cheerful "Bon Jour!".

Room Tip: We had room facing the back ... very quiet, no view, faces offices.

I stayed two nights at Hotel Francois 1er and they could not have been nicer, more accommodating and helpful with whatever assistance I needed. The hotel is on a quiet street so no sounds heard from the very close Avenue George V nor the Champs-Elysees. For Paris, the rooms are perfectly sized, beautifully decorated, very comfortable beds, lovely bathrooms and they have AC - a must in summer. There was a wide range of international guests including families and solo travelers. Breakfast was a bountiful spread with great coffee. I will return again for a very comfortable, easy and elegant stay.

My wife and I had a Parisian honeymoon, and we stayed here on the last leg of our trip. It was a bit of a splurge for us, but well worth it! The staff was so welcoming and professional, and we felt they went the extra step to make our stay special. They even helped us put together a picnic with their own glassware and tableware! (We brought it back of course). The location within the neighborhood is great. We spent the first half of our trip in the Latin quarter, so it was nice to experience a different part of town, and we were able to walk everywhere. The rooms were stylish, clean, and comfy. Overall we had a great experience, and are glad we spent the extra money.

Stayed September 2013

This is an upscale boutique hotel with immaculate touches of French deco. Location is prime to many attractions as well as easy access to the metro. Upon check in they were overbooked and had to send me to a sister hotel that was very close but made up for it with an upgrade to an Executive room, free champagne, speedy laundry service as well as attending to my every need. All staff knew my name and were very knowledgeable and very friendly. The only negative I could say is there were some stains on the carpet in my room. Note that this is an expensive area for food and drink even compared to normal Paris standards. Great hotel!

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for having chosen our hotel for you stay in Paris and for sharing your experience in TripAdvisor.
We have started to redecorate the François 1er hotel and all the carpets with stains will be completely changed. You are completely right that this area is already very expensive one so the least we can do is to give the best service and impeccable rooms for our guests.

We all wish you a wonderful autumn.
Kind regards
Alain Lagarrigue & Rita Nouvel

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.
