Very helpful staff. Wonderful rooms. Ludivic at the front desk is a genius. If you need to find a restaurant, opera tickets (yes we did this), tours of the city etc. Ludivic is your man. Have breakfast in the hotel. fresh bread and fruit so good you will want to stay a few more days.

From the first night I had an upgrade to a superior room however my booking was a standard room, I wasn't able to sleep at night because the room next door was so noisy, the people were...

This was a very nice boutique hotel just off the Champs Elysees and very near the George V metro station which made it very easy to get around. The room ended up been an executive room that was an upgrade from the superior room that we had booked. This ended up being a welcomed perk. The other rooms seemed to...

Thoroughly enjoyed my five night stay at Hotel Francois 1er. Welcoming and hospitable from the moment I stepped inside until I sadly left. The entire staff (concierge, bell man, house keeper and restaurant servers) were extremely accommodating and helpful. Hotel and rooms are beautifully decorated...no detail was overlooked. Considering the close proximity to the Champs Elysees, the street and hotel...

This was a perfect place to stay for anyone thinking of doing the Paris Marathon in the future. Located a few streets from the start line, subway, and 15 minute walk from the finish line.
