I went on a spontaneous trip to Paris. First time staying at Francois 1er, and funnily enough it took me forever to hover around my usual Parisian neighbourhood the Golden Triangle to find it! Location is wonderful - moments away from the Four Seasons and needless to mention Avenue George V/ Montaigne for designer shopping. Good restaurants are nearby or...

What can I say? This hotel was perfect in every way. Location? Check? Food? Check? Hospitality? A hidden gem I cannot wait to visit again. No complaints. Breakfast each morning was a treat and whatever we needed they arranged. From dinner suggestions to a taxi on the spot nothing was too difficult. It is small, intimate and you will recognize...

The Hotel Francois 1er is a fabulous, elegant & charming small hotel, just off the Champs Elysees. From the moment you sit at the reception desk (an actual desk!), you know that you will receive personal service and consideration. The regular rooms are the usual Paris size, but so lovely and lushly appointed. Treat yourself to a suite, if you...

The hotel is fantastic. Accommodations were clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and even accommodated a very early check in as I was flying in overnight from the US so I could shower before heading to the office.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. From the moment we arrived, the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a great holiday. We were given a recently renovated room that was so charming!
