Hotel Francois 1er completed exceeded our expectations and made our Paris visit extra special in every way. We had read about so many sketchy experiences with tiny rooms, broken plumbing and noisy locations that we were a bit weary, fearful of what lie waiting upon our arrival. Hotel Francois 1er was absolutely stunning- beautifully appointed, first class in every aspect,...

My husband and I booked this hotel for 3 nights however upon arrival, we were told that there was no room available the first night. Instead they had booked a room at a sister hotel just 3 minutes walk away. I admit I was a bit annoyed with this inconvenience but the staff was very apologetic and upgraded our first...

This hotel is pure French luxury. Loved the room, had plenty of space, and was treated like royalty. Very quiet even though located off the Champs Elysee. Definitely recommend this hotel and will stay there again if I return to Paris.

We had a great experience at the Francois. We arrived after 10 pm and there were no problems with checking in. Our room was small, but not uncomfortably so. While the hotel is only two blocks from the Champs-Elysses, it was remarkably quiet at night and not overrun with cars or tourists. Very convenient to the Metro, which allowed us...

Just don't hesitate to book if you want to live central but quiet. Just 100 - 200 m to Champs Elysées and l'arc de triomphe. And easy to go with the metro to the heart of Paris.

This little boutque hotel is absolutely wonderful! The staff is kind and friendly, they booked a tour for us and let us check out late at no additional charge. The location I can't say enough good things about. Close to The Arc De Triomphe, 2 blocks away from The Champs Eyllesses, and a short walk to the most beautiful view...

First of all, I'd definitely return to the F1er when I'm next in Paris unless I want to be in a different part of town (Champs Elysee's slightly uppity, but mostly enjoyable). The location in the heart of Champs can't be beat (the Four Seasons chose it too); if you like walking, a terrific up-close view of the Eiffel is...

Located just off the Champs Elysee, this hotel is a perfect location and very quite. Every thing about the hotel makes you feel comfortable, the rooms, the service, excellent buffet breakfast in the basement. Drinks are expensive but they all are in this part of Paris. We dined at Oscars (1km away) and were disappointed, on the second night we...
