Boutique hotel in the heart of Paris, sought after quiet location
The Hotel Francois 1er hides in a side street off the Champs Elysees, offering both a peaceful location and fantastic access to one of Paris' most popular areas. The former townhouse strives to makes guests feel like they are in a home away from home. A winter garden in the bar provides a stunning backdrop for pre-dinner drinks, and a fireplace helps visitors to stay cozy on chilly evenings. Both French and international cuisine are offered in the hotel, perfect after a day spent exploring Paris.
3 Reasons To Stay
  • Side street location gives visitors a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of Paris
  • Short walk to the Champs Elysees, Arc de Triomphe and some of Paris' best shopping areas
  • A choice of classic French food or international cuisine
Hotel Francois 1er Rooms
Each of the hotel's 38 rooms and 2 suites were renovated by architect Pierre Yves Rochon, who also designed many of the furnishings and features across Hotel Francois 1er. Rich reds and elegant yellows give rooms a warm feel while crisp bed linen, full-length drapes and comfortable furniture add comfort and aid relaxation. Extra touches including elegant bedside lamps, paintings and handcrafted furniture create the feeling of being in an elegant private home. Modern amenities include air conditioning, satellite television and broadband Internet (fees may apply). Complimentary toiletries, bathrobes and slippers are included. Restaurant style international cuisine is available via 24-hour room service.

Nothing Special

We were celebrating our five year anniversary and looking forward to this trip. We were disappointed with our stay at Hotel François considering we spent so much money per night. Maids walked in at odd hours (early morning) several times without warning. At times, hotel was noisy. Room were not clean for a four star hotel. Dust was noticeable, bathroom corners looked moldy and comforter had visible stains. Customer service was good (referring to Francois). He is the person responsible for getting ice, iron, etc. Everyone else had a nonchalant attitude. This hotel did not feel as luxurious as it advertised. Way too expensive for the little you get. However, décor was nice and location was good if you don’t mind restaurants and stores being on the pricey side. Lots to see on Champs de Elysee.

5 Star Quality at 3 Star Prices!

Everything about this hotel is great. It's around the corner from the Four Seasons (Hotel George V) and is decorated in a similar manner, one-sixth the price, and has just as great of service. Luxurious marble bathrooms, spacious bedrooms, great amenities, free internet, and a great location. My room was clean and nicely decorated in an updated traditional style. The neighborhood is quiet enough to sleep tranquilly with the windows open, yet steps away from the Champs Elysees, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Armani, etc. My only complaint was a vague smell of cigarettes in the hallways, which makes me think they need to separate the smoking & non-smoking floors. I'll be going back, if they're not sold out due to this review!

Beautiful Stay

From the moment you approach, you know you're in for a lovely stay. y husband and I live in Europe and just stopped in Paris for a long weekend. The location is an ideal jumping-off point with the metro just a few blocks away. The hotel inside and out, is simply beautiful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The standard room is small, with not much space beyond the full size bed, but that is typical for Europe. The decor is gorgeous and classic French luxury. The beds, pillows and sheets were very comfortable and the showers were also the nice rain showers. The brunch is okay - I might have done better just getting a roll and coffee at a nearby cafe - the brunch room is elegant. For a romantic weekend/getaway that feels luxurious, this is a great place to stay.

Great location, friendly service

Location is central, yet on a quiet street. If you love walking you can explore many key points by walk. Rooms are small. So, get a "classic room" at the least. Room service was good, and so was the breakfast. I would certainly go back and stay at this hotel.

quick stay in paris

Nice hotel near the Champs Elysees with easy access to the metro. Hotel was quiet, clean and pleasant. We were upgraded to a larger room without our asking for it. Breakfast buffet downstairs was American style with plenty of choices. Had cocktails in the lounge and we were the only customers there, which was very relaxing.

Really great hotel!

Allowed us to both check in early and check out late. The concierge in particular was extremely nice and helpful, helping us make restaurant reservations, and other recommendations and suggestions during our stay. We stayed in the Classic room, which is the smallest, and were very happy and comfortable.
