We have stayed in many Relais et Chateaux hotels, and whole we enjoyed our stay we didn't feel it was one of the best hotels we had stayed at. It is all very well thought out, lovely library bar, lots of seating dotted about, beautiful proportions. Our bathroom was utterly fabulous. Lovely conceirge, so helpful. The issues I had were...

We liked the the St. James from the moment we arrived. A chateau style pearl in the heart of Paris. In walking distance from Place Victor Hugo, the Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower. The staff at the St James were fantastic, thoughtful and made our stay being one of the best city breaks we've done so far. The room... More

I think it is one of the best boutique hotel in Paris! The decoration is "crazy" amazing in all areas of this wonderful building. The staff was very pleasant, the room (402) was excellent and the quality and quantity of the breakfast was perfect. The food and the service in the restaurant was an amazing experience! Congrats to the entire... More

Probably one of the best city hotels I have stayed in. Excellent service throughout with a great boutique feel. The restaurant has a Michelin star (deservedly), but there is not a hint of stuffiness or pretension throughout the establishment. When I am next in Paris, I would probably only stay somewhere else if this place was fully booked.

Dear guest, Thank you so much for recommending us on TripAdvisor! While offering all the services of a larger property (a Michelin-star restaurant, an extensive fitness room and Guerlain spa among others), the Saint James Paris still conveys a very intimate and cozy feeling. We aim at being like a home to our guests and with only 48 rooms and... More

I adore the unique interior decor in every room which can be too much for those with modern and minimalist sensibilities. Very boudoir and magical. There is a sweet little massage room in the basement. This hotel is at a quiet corner off the Arc de Triomphe. Perfect for a honeymoon and romantic getaway.

My designer wife and I are extremely demanding in our search for the perfect boutique hotel, and St James exceeded our highest expectations. The initial impressions as you enter the main gate are of a mix of F Scott Fitzgerald's hedonistic Gatsby parties and Cinderella's dream ball as the classic chateau illuminated by the central fountain and subtle lighting welcomes...

With a private gated entry and a court yard, this 47 room property is a gem. If you want privacy, and 5 star service, it is worth considering this property. It is an alternative to the dozen or so larger Palace or 5 star properties. Rooms are unique, and feel like you are in a private chateaux rather than a... More
