Stayed for a few nights over the New Year period and we loved this hotel. The atmosphere is cosy and friendly. The decor is elegant. The rooms are not large but very comfortable and attractive. Breakfast was good. The location is perfect for sightseeing. Highly recommended.

We stayed one night at the Francois 1er and had a very nice stay, however, we're not sure we would have enjoyed a longer stay there. The rooms are very cozy and well kept, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom also was well appointed with marble and nice toiletries. The service was perhaps the best part, the staff...

My husband and I came to Paris as part of our honeymoon trip. We were surprised when we arrived and learned that our reservation had been "cancelled" by the company we booked with! Not exactly what you want to hear when youve traveled half around the world. The hotel was very accomodating though, and set us up with a room...

Hotel Francois 1er is great boutique hotel. It is very conveniently located (1.5 blocks from the Champs-Élysées). Rooms are a little small but that's to be expected in Europe in general. The hotel was very clean, lots of hot water and the breakfast buffet is very good (and it's not that expensive when you consider it cost me 9 euros...

This is a beautiful, boutique hotel with a small, personal feel. Beautifully decorated and only a few minutes' walk off the Champs d'Elysees. Very high-end so you may want to pack your black dress slacks rather than your jeans. Concierges were very helpful, all spoke English.

I read a ton of reviews on Trip Advisor before finally selecting this one through British Airways holidays... It was the first time I was taking my new girlfriend away so I wanted everything to be perfect, and it was!

We stayed 3 nights for a short stop in Paris. The service is very good, the breakfast if you prefer a continental option is good too. There is no much staff because is a small hotel but they are all very kind. The rooms are a little bit small, but that doesn´t matter because with such a location you will...

We stayed in this luxury boutique hotel only for two nights - but it was fantastic and unforgettable stay. This trip was dedicated to the 4th anniversary of our wedding, thus I booked the hotel in advance via IPrefer site. One week prior to arrival I sent the e-mail to the hotel explaining them that it will be our anniversary...
