Hôtel Francois 1er

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I loved this hotel. Right on the Champs behind Louis Vuitton at a side road near Fouquet's. Cozy and clean with a japanese theme. Fancy toileteries. Convenient location. You might find the breakfast cheap at first but surprisingly you will find all you need with sophisticated french cheese, viennoiseries, cakes, and best scrambled eggs. So much recommended.

We had booked 2 hotel rooms, and were very pleasantly surprised that it was so close situated to La Champs Elysses. Nice staff, nice rooms, beds a bit on the small side. The breakfast was unfortunately not so nice, thin coffee, sausages from a jar and so on and so forth, a shame as it really ruined out view on the hotel. We left our luggage with the concierge and went shopping, we expected the hotel to look after it, but when we returned 5 hours later, the luggage still sat at the entrance, the concierge was nowhere to be seen and everyone could have taken it.

I booked this hotel for my boyfriends surprise birthday trip which was a couple of weeks ago and could not of been happier with this hotel choice. It is perfectly located by Champ elysees behind Louis Vuitton, brilliantly close but not too close that its noisy in the room. The hotel is typically french and absolutely lovely. The staff were so polite and helpful, especially the lovely man who bought our luggage up. We were given 2 glasses of champagne to have at the bar which was a sweet extra. The room was gorgeous as was the rest of the hotel, we did not have breakfast as we didn't pay for it to be included. Thank you for the best stay! Amazing value for money considering the perfect location steps away from central Paris and the beautiful standard of the whole hotel. We will definitely be back. Merci!

Nice boutique hotel but the rooms are somehow small. it's a very good location at champs elysee near George Cinq. The metro (George V) is a 2 minute walk from the hotel. The price is mid range not cheap.

This hotel is excellently located in the heart of Paris and for that premier location reasonably priced. We had a spacious room and it was spotless. Everything smelt very nice and fresh. The bed and pillows were perfect. The ambience is homely, it does not feel like a hotel. This was the second stay and I was not disappointed.

I had a 24 hour business travel to Paris, and was looking for a cheap stay. The hotel was just great - *perfect* location, clean, cheap. Nice employees. I've asked for an iron and was provided one quickly.

Located behind the Louis Vuitton store on the Champs Elysees this is a fantastic location. The metro (George V) is a 2 minute walk from the hotel. Great base for exploring Paris. The room was a good size and really beautiful. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was lovely. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Stayed on business during fashion week. This beautiful hotel offered rest from the crowds on a quiet side street, with access to business as well as proximity to sightseeing. It feels like coming home after a busy day in the city!

The perfect hotel in Paris! Close to Champs Elysees and George 5 ideal for shopping and restaurants. The hotel itself is very smart yet casual with helpful and friendly staff. Rooms could be a little larger but comfortable...

Francois 1er is an excellent boutique hotel situated close to tourist and shipping in central Paris. I enjoyed my stay here. It's a very cute hotel and very Parisian. My room was compact so I doubt if I'd use the same room if I went with family. But overall I loved my stay there.
