Pleasant, clean & comfortable with a good breakfast. Very reasonable price for Paris. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
The hotel seemed very well priced for the quality of the room and general standard of hotel - it was the main reason I booked it. I was not disappointed. Although the room was small I understand this is the norm for parisienne hotels. The shower in our room was very nice also. There is a metro station directly opposite the hotel, and the streets nearby provide plenty of choice for a meal if you don't want to travel for dinner. By far the best aspect of our stay was the freindliness of the hotel staff, their English was excellent, and nothing was too much trouble.
The only aspect of our stay which left me disapponted was the soft drink situation. The hotel advertised free soft drinks with our tarif, but this was limited to 2x small bottles of water and a can of sparkling water. When my husband got two more small bottles of water later in the week we were charged 5e on our bill. A minor point on an otherwise good stay, but one which I think could be avoided and which is misleading.
Our stay at the hotel exceeded our expectations. The staff was friendly and took the time to answer all of our questions about our stay in Paris. Our room was clean and represented a good value; breakfast was included and that always put our day off to a good start. The hotel is centered near two metro stops one of which was a hub and made travel easy and fast. I would not hesitate to stay at the Grand Hotel Francais
Welcoming staff, very helpful. Room clean and modern: excellent shower. Very good buffet breakfast.Good location near metro and a genuine city neighbourhood - not touristy. Good value overall.
Room slightly more compact than I had expected.
* The location (2 min. walking distance to Metro Station Rue des Boulets and 5-10 min. walking distance to Metro Station Nation), also there's everything you would need (restaurant, market, pharmacy, patiserrie, etc.) very near to the hotel, * The attitude of the personnel; everyone took great care of us, they always responded to all our needs with great effectiveness and smiling faces :), * The breakfast, * The room; the douche was very nice and everything in the bathroom was precisely cleaned everyday, the bed was very comfortable with clean sheets, (we booked a standard room, but they have upgraded our room to a superior room which is better for long stays), * The free wi-fi opportunity (internet worked very well)
* The smallness of the room, but this is standart in France hotels, so this is not exactly a negative point concerning this hotel but a general comment on hotels in Paris, so that people go there preparing themselves.
The people were the best. Very kind and helpful and fun. The room was super clean and had everything we needed. Nice design. very quiet which was so important.
The rooms really were tiny. I know that this is common in Paris, but it still is a drawback. The breakfast could have been better but was adequate.
Location was important, easy access to CDG. Also very close to Let's Le Chaise.
Claustraphobic room and common spaces.
Very quiet room (good phonic isolation) with clean and functional equipments, furnitures and services. A good breakfast with smiling staff. A good place for a business stay in North East area of Paris.
The interiors were very nice and the room was spruced up every day. The staff was very friendly.
Our toilet was not clean when we arrived, however it was cleaned the next day.
Very, very clean room. The room was not overlarge but very comfortable, quiet, and the shower was very good. Staff were friendly and reception staff particularly helpful especially Ziad. Breakfast was included and was perfectly adequate. Close to Metro Nation station which made it very easy to get around.
good location with a bunch of excellent small restaurants within a walking distance; nice, small but very clean room, internet access RER and metro stations nearby helpful staff
A nice 3-star hotel in the XI, near to public transport. For Paris it is worth the money. Nice breakfast. Very pleasant stay.
The rooms are not too big, as the breakfast room, but this is Paris though.
Excellent service with sound local knowledge with personal touch. fantastic location....proper rustic paris (not too touristy) spitting distance from metro line with easy access to all tourist attractions.
Room was very well equiped. Bathroom and bed are top quality. Good WIFI
We were on ground floor and therefore couldn't open the windows and we could slightly feel the Metro. The room was pretty small.
Good price. Great, helpful front desk. Good breakfast (by French standards). Reasonable sized room (by Paris standards). Close to metro.
