Pretty and Parisian

Posted Aug 18, 2015
I found this hotel by looking at reviews on the Internet. They met and exceeded our expectations! It's a pretty little hotel with a very nice staff. The room was pretty and had a balcony - which was very nice. They also did our laundry and I was SUPER happy and surprised they would do that for us - it was much needed. The wi-fi service was the best service we had the whole trip! The metro stations are VERY close and the surrounding neighborhood has a pharmacy, shops and Kentucky of places to eat. It's pretty close to tourists places, but far enough away to give you a sense of a "neighborhood" - we really enjoyed our stay and wioukd stay there again in a minute. They also upgraded our room without us even asking!!!! Woo Hoo!!

Not bad but not good

Posted Aug 3, 2015
It wasnt horrible for the price but rooms were very tiny. It was also a stop on my honeymoon and the only place out of 6 hotels which did not send a bottle of sparkling wine. I know it shouldnt be expected but a good example of the little things this hotel doesnt meet expectations on. The other thing I found odd was they left the towels on the floor instead of on a rack...... weird. Hope your not clostraphobic if you choose to stay here. All in all not a bad bang for the buck tho. Oh yeah and location sux.

Lovely hotel, friendly and very helpful staff A*

Posted Aug 3, 2015
Pros: Clean crisp decoration, nice facilities, WIFI included and a fridge stocked with water. Friendly staff and overall great location
Cons: Cleaners reading notices you leave on your door
Location: So close to Nation station which is a easy mode of transport to all the big tourism hotspots! And the trains are very frequent
A wonderful Hotel with nice little touches, the staff were very friendly and eager to help. We only stayed one night and the only downfall which wasnt the hotels fault was constant knocking from cleaners who entered our room at 9:30am to see that we were still in bed even though we left a do not disturb notice on our door, BUT, overall a nice place, a slight bit out of the way of all main attractions, which to be honest was a plus for me as there is less noise polution in the evening and less hustle and bustle, but the Nation (Metro Station) was only a short walk, making it a top place to stay!

Great small hotel in a quiet area of Paris

Posted Aug 1, 2015
Pros: I like the mini refrigerator, the air conditioner ( a welcomed relief since it was hot in Paris in July), and the recently renovated bathroom.
Cons: Although the wi-fi was fast, I was not able to charge my laptop at night, but only in the early morning.
Location: The hotel's location is quiet, easily accessible to major tourist attractions by metro. There are grocery stores and restaurants as well.
I stayed at the Grand Hotel Français in July 2015 while I was going to school in Paris. As a woman, my decision to stay there was based on the reviews I read on the Internet. The hotel is located between two metro stations; I took the line 9 Rue des Boulets daily to go to school, a short commute. I felt safe and comfortable staying at the Grand Hotel Français, and was very happy to get up in the morning after a good night's sleep. The bed was very comfortable; the sheets were laundered and changed daily. The room's refrigerator was a bonus, and with two good markets nearby, I stocked it with many French delicacies, making my stay even more fun and pleasant. It was great to return to my room after a busy day. I recommend this hotel and will stay there again when I return to Paris in the future.

All about convenient location!

Posted Jun 25, 2015
Location: About 5 mins off Nation Metro station which most lines tourists care about run through. A big tick~ Room: OK. I know many people commented it's small and crowded but hey it's Paris! Got free mini-bar for the 1st night with 2 bottled water and Perrier. WiFi speed acceptable, and TV got many digital channels including English ones like BBC, CNN and CNBC which is a plus although the screen is a bit too small! Staff: OK. I really like the evening staff who saluted me every time I get back. One small issue tho was one day when I put on "Do Not Distrub" and the room still got cleaned! Guess it could be a misunderstanding? Breakfast: Did not try so can't comment.

Dear Sir, thank you for leaving your feedback online. We are so grateful you took the time to do so . Indeed it must have been a misunderstanding when itcomes rto the do not disturb sign on your door as we usually do the room anyway after midday just a matter of hygiene and security. But next time we'll know better . We look forward to seeing you again.

Nice hotel, out of tourist fray. Good location.

Posted Jun 15, 2015
Pros: Staff, Location, Price.
Cons: Exterior is a bit dated, but that really doesn't impact the experience.
Location: Easy walk to bars and restaurants in the 11th and 4th districts. Fun, ethnic places along Blvd Charonne. Close to the Nation Metro stop.
Friendly staff, reasonable prices, quite comfortable. Good location near Metro and restaurants, with more of a city neighborhood feel than tourist trap.
