We went to Iceland, and some other places in France this summer. So we took Paris as a base, literally we took SJAHS as the base. Since we had many pieces of suitcases, we left half of them at SJAHS each time we left for Iceland and some other cities. They were very cool about it, they just asked us... More

Stayed here with 2 children. Booked family room and ended up with 2 interconnecting rooms which was a massive bonus. Large rooms, small bathrooms but well refurbished. Clean, very comfortable beds and linen. Spa robes provided and pool access for kids was another bonus after hot days walking around the sites. Extremely quiet at night- we did not overlook the...

We stayed here for three nights around New Years, and we truly enjoyed the experience. There were some difficulties for check in: room wasn't ready until almost 6pm, and that was followed by the hotel losing our luggage for two more hours. Once everything was figured out, the hotel management sincerely apologized and delivered chocolates, strawberries, and champagne to the... More

Beautiful hotel centrally located close to the Louvre Museum d'Orsay & other famous attractions. Internally regal smart & beautifully French. Expensive hotel although advance booking reduces the cost. Small bedrooms provided so seemingly tariff linked as aware larger rooms on offer?
