About Hôtel Francois 1er, Paris

Luxury boutique with free WiFi near the Champs-Elysées

Calm and chic
The salubrious Hôtel François 1er puts you on a calm street in a swanky district near the Champs-Elysées and Avenue George V. Designer fashion stores and trendy restaurants abound nearby, or you can hop on the metro at George V Metro Station to reach the Louvre or the Marais.

Sights on your doorstep
You can take a 15-minute stroll to the Arc de Triomphe and climb to the top for a view over the district. For something more artsy, a 10-minute walk will take you to the galleries and museums of the Palais de Tokyo and the Grand Palais.

Fit for a king
Named after France's Renaissance monarch, Hôtel François 1er feels like a lush private residence, with works of art in the salons and a bar overlooking a winter garden. Before heading out, you can fill up on the hotel's American-style breakfast buffet.

History revisited
Beautifully appointed guestrooms by renowned interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon combine a cosseted take on history with modern facilities like free WiFi and satellite TV. You'll also have a minibar, and bathrooms feature heated mirrors and Fragonard bath goodies.

Hôtel Francois 1er, Paris
Fabulous Paris hotel
I loved this hotel. When we arrived, early on Saturday morning, they already had a room ready for us. Staff was so kind. There was an issue where we had made a mistake we made with the reservation - getting a single queen bed instead of two twins - and they very kindly changed our reservation. Our room had one robe vs. two and housekeeping despite it being a weekend found another robe for us. The room was fabulous. I loved the lobby decor too with the quirky walls that looks like bookcases but also were doors. Hotel well located on the Champs Elysees. Would definitely stay here again!

Hôtel Francois 1er, Paris
Very friendly staff and the room was nice and clean. I didn't end up eating breakfast there but the location was great, just a few blocks off the Champs Elysee. I had a room on the back side of the hotel, first floor, and couldn't hear any road noise or anything, so I'd say it was quiet, relaxing, and convenient.

Return Visit Doesn't Disappoint

Cozy Hotel very near the Arc de Triomphe
This hotel is charming and located in an ideal area a few blocks off the Champs-Elysee (the corner where the Louis Vuitton HQ is located). I thought this was a good choice for our first vacation stop, and I was proved right by the staff and the cozy hotel ( don't bring lots of luggage...typically tight room with no place to layout). Here is a good selection for any stay in this marvelous world city!
