Without a doubt one of the most beautiful hotels you will ever experience. Each room is a work of art, from the architecture to the beautiful decorations. We actually had to spend time just sitting quietly and enjoying the opulence. If this is a bit over your budget consider popping in for one special night. This hotel is a wonderful... More

We recently had the pleasure of spending three nights at the St James Paris. The staff was incredibly welcoming and helpful and spoke fluent English. Our room was large with a separate sitting room that was very tastefully decorated clean and the bed was great. The grounds were beautiful, very well manicured and once served as the first "airport" for... More

I visited Saint James Paris nearly 6 months ago, but the hotel made an impression on me. To be honest I did not get to see much of the hotel, as I was horribly sick and bedridden the the whole time I was there...The hotel is beautiful, with a gorgeous grand entrance, eccentric wallpaper, and portraits layered on the walls,...

In March, I had a long layover at CDG and wanted to surprise my partner with a private tour of the city. I contacted Christian, Concierge Extraordinaire, at the St James. Even though we were not staying at the hotel, Christian graciously helped me book the tour, which was just perfection. Thank you, Christian and the entire Concierge team for... More

Wonderfully situated in a quiet backstreet but very close lovely neighborhood bistros and a lovely patisserie. The interior has been featured in Elle interiors and it is really kooky but not in a obvious way. My husband took me for an exceptionally rare child-free weekend and it felt sophisticated and elegant without even a hint of stuffyness. We had cocktails... More

I have stayed in a number of hotels in Paris and the St James is by far my favorite. It is not the most glamorous hotel in town, but special in it's own way. It is not quote central, but still close enough to shopping and main Blvds. that you don't feel totally isolated. It is romantic, and it's slightly... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your kind review and for staying with us recently. You have made a perfect description of the hotel, very parisian, yet different. We are fortunate enough to be off the beaten path (very quiet consequently) and still close to the shopping areas of Victor Hugo, the restaurants, the Eiffel Tower and the public... More

My wife and I stayed with another couple at the St James for her 60th Birthday. As soon as we arrived they upgraded us to a suite and things only got better from there. The hotel and staff were absolutely 5 star. To have a hotel in the middle of Paris with those grounds is magical. We can't wait to... More

This was a beautiful property that felt like a chateau in a garden oasis in Paris. Location Great location within walking distance of boulangeries, patisseries, and supermarkets. Room We got upgraded to a junior sweet on the 2nd floor with windows facing the front of the hotel. I would recommend trying to get a room facing the back for more... More

We could start with: Once upon a time there was a huge city, busy with traffic and noises, buildings, stones and houses all over, everybody was running, no one had time for you in that concrete jungle… Suddenly after walking for ages, you stood in a small garden in front of a fountain with sparkling water, with trees, bushes and...
