We were a little apprehensive about staying at the Grand Hotel Francais, after all other reviews suggested the rooms were quite small. However, we were prepared to pay a little extra for a superior room and took the chance, after all we did not intend to spend a lot of time in the room anyway. The room we were allocated was small and the lift to the 4th floor was extremely slow but our stay at the Grand Hotel Francais was a pleasant and memorable experience. The hotel is located close to Nation Place which is served well by underground rail. A short walk to the station to purchase a tourist rail pass puts you within 30 min of almost anywhere in Paris. We also enjoy a decent walk and one day walked from the hotel to the Seine and beyond to Boulevard San Micheal - it is amazing how much more of a city you see and learn when you walk. The greatest boon for the Grand Hotel is its staff. Our room was kept immaculate by the housekeeping staff and nothing was too much trouble for them. Zyad, our hotel manager was the most pleasant and helpful man anyone could hope to meet. Zyad was more than happy to give his very clear and accurate advice and his friendly nature and willingness to chat made our stay so much more enjoyable. The hotel is a little out of the way (but also quiet at night) if you want to be in the thick of Parisian life but there are several very good (but quite expensive) restaurants nearby. We have no hesitation in recommending the Grand Hotel Francais to those who are looking for a quiet, well managed boutique hotel in Paris at a very competitive price.
