Anatole France is a standard configuration station. It has two platforms, 105 meters long, separated by the metro tracks, and the vault is elliptical. However, it has a particularity: the platforms are partially offset (like Saint-Germain-des-Prés) due to the narrow width of the street under which it is located. The Commerce and Liège stations have platforms that are completely offset for the same reason. The decoration is of the style used for most metro stations. The lighting strips are white and rounded in the Gaudin style of the renouveau du métro of the 2000s, and the bevelled white ceramic tiles cover the walls, the vault and the tympans. The advertising frames are faience in a honey colour and the name of the station is also of faience. It is equipped with benches.
