Situated on the Rue de Rivoli right opposite the Tuileries Gardens, you couldn’t wish for a more central location. The building is Parisian elegance and has a real feel of class when first you enter. My arrival at reception was handled efficiently and cordially, and I was lucky to be upgraded to a suite even though I’d booked just a... More

Just returned from Paris whilst celebrating our wedding anniversary. We stayed at Saint James Albany hotel Rue de Rivoli Paris for four nights. This four star hotel is an excellent choice, for those wishing to visit the popular tourist attractions, although it is located centrally it is lovely, and quiet facing a beautiful park with several large ponds. The hotel... More

We booked the hotel for its central location and was not dissapointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food, spa pool and steam room (hammam) were stunning. The room was basic but very quiet, the downside- no tea or coffee making facility. Overall the room rate in our opinion was not justified at 250 euro per night. We... More

The hotel is very close to everything walking distance.. and there are others that are close as well; However... the staff at this hotel are the best. I have stayed at others in Paris but have now stayed at the St. James several times. I will continue to return here as the staff makes you feel like family. The rooms... More

All the staff has been really helpful and very nice - It is very enjoyable in Paris. The location is perfect as it is close to the Tuileries Gardens, The Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay, Place Vendome, Concorde & Champs Elysées. it is exactly in the middle of Paris and it is very easy to go everywhere from it.

My partner booked this hotel for us as a Valentine's treat. It was an amazing hotel. Literally opposite the metro station and right in the centre of Paris. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. They upgraded our room for us at no extra cost. We didn't eat at the hotel... More

Though our breakfast was not included, we ate 3 breakfasts at the hotel. 22 Euros for a full breakfast, with a... More

If you want good location and a nicely designed lobby, with friendly lobby staff then this is the place for you. If you want a nice room and bathroom, a friendly Spa, good breakfast and coffee/tea making in your room then it isn't. I was very disappointed with my Junior Suite. It was drab and scruffy. The bathroom was very... More
