About Grand Hotel Francais, Paris, France

Stylish, affordable accommodation in eastern Paris

To dine for
The freshly updated Grand Hôtel Français sits just east of Bastille, in an area known for its authentic restaurants. You'll be a 30-minute walk or an easy metro ride (from Nation or Rue des Boulets) from the trendy Marais district.

To die for
Père-Lachaise Cemetery, a 15-minute walk north, is a fascinating city of the dead, with elaborate mausoleums for stars from Chopin to Jim Morrison. For something more lively, the gleaming opera house at Bastille is known for its contemporary operatic and ballet productions.

Haussmann revisited
The friendly, family-owned Grand Hôtel Français is in a recently renovated Haussmannian stone building with wrought-iron balconies. You'll find free WiFi throughout, and free newspapers in the cozy ground-floor bar. Breakfast is served daily in the atmospheric cellar dining room.

Shower in style
Guestrooms are attractively decorated in suave creams and browns, with flat-screen TVs, stocked minibars, and blackout drapes. Some corner rooms have wraparound balconies. Brown-tiled bathrooms are particularly stylish, with their hydro-jet baths or walk-in hydro-massage showers.

Grand Hotel Francais, Paris, France
Great hotel for short stay
Great hotel in Paris. Convenient location near the Nation subway hub. Room small but clean and perfectly fit for the 5 days we stayed. Staff was very helpful nice and friendly. The included breakfast buffet was great, fresh baguette, croissants Yummy! We will definitely go back. Only caveat is the lack of a dresser in the room so we lived out of the suitcase

Great customer service and accommodations!

Grand Hotel Francais, Paris, France
Friendly service but room cramped. Even an upgrade to a ‘superior’ room only provided a cramped room - the advantage was being at the back, away from the busy road. Didn’t feel very superior but bed comfy, condition fine, bathroom fine.

Grand Hotel Francais, Paris, France
Excellent hotel
An excellent hotel with the friendliest, most helpful staff. We were offered a welcome drink in the bar. on arrival. Our room was very clean and tidied to an immaculate standard by the daily cleaners. The hotel was in a lovely tree lined boulevard near to several metro stations. Although it's on a fairly busy road, our room overlooked a side street, and was very quiet. While we were there, we visited an antique/bric- a -brac market down the road from the hotel and a fantastic food market nearby. We had a great trip and would definitely book the hotel again.
