Paris off-season

We stayed at Grand Hotel Francais last week. The hotel was great, staff very helpful and all spoke English well. They upgraded our room for free when we arrived, which was much appreciated as the room was still small (which we expected for Paris), and we couldn't imagine how small the basic room would be. The rooms are clean, shower was great, Wifi worked well, location was good and easy to find, quiet neighborhood, 10 minute metro ride from all attractions. Staff let us keep our bags their for a night while we went to Caen and made recommendations while there. Also gave us a good list of restaurants to try.

Excellent Hotel

We stayed for two nights in December and had a wonderful time, the hotel is situated beside an excellent Metro (Nation). The staff were extremely helpful and I would be happy to recommend this hotel.

Good location - not far from Nation

Good location - not far from Nation metro. Clean and comfortable bed with extremely modern bathroom. Very tasteful refurbishment. Nice patisserie across the street but a cheaper and just as nice one up the street!

Excellent small hotel. Comfortable

Excellent small hotel. Comfortable rooms, good value for money, and a good location, just a few yards from Rue des Boulets metro and 5 minutes from Nation metro. Good for business or seeing the city. Staff we extremely kind and helpful. Will definitely stay there again next time I'm in Paris.

Loved our stay! Like most European

Loved our stay! Like most European hotels, rooms are small but fine for average-sized people. Larger sized people would find the toilet hard to use. A wonderful breakfast available--10 Euros but we ate bread purchased at a close-by market. A tiny refrig. and blow dryer in rooms but that's all. Travel irons NOT permitted in the room even with European electric adapters. The shower steamed our clothes! Two blocks from a cheap internet cafe, (request the American keyboard!), 3 blocks to the main circle, where there's a grocery, fast-food restaurant, drugstore, etc. within a 4 block circle. Be prepared to walk--as with everything in Paris! Staff delightful and spoke passable English and understand our passable French! Four tips: bring your own washcloth; eat at Casino grocery store's upstairs buffet; buy a small instant coffee and cup and make coffee in your room with tap water; buy a carnet of Metro tickets for the subway 3 blocks away. Would definitely stay there again!

A very pleasant hotel if a little

A very pleasant hotel if a little of the beaten tourist track, but none the worse for that as right next to a metro station. Staff at reception were very helpful and spoke excellent English. The room was small but very nicely furnished and spotlessly clean.
