My wife and I stayed in a suite for 3 nights as a romantic treat. From the moment we arrived we were very well looked after by friendly, professional and efficient staff. The suite was great and had a very comfortable bed and plenty space. The food was also great. It is in a good location and handy for the... 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...

Who knew that you could improve on perfection! I had the fantastic opportunity to stay at the Saint James for my third visit in November and it was beyond the perfection that had already blown me away all the other times I've been so fortunate enough to stay. The rooms are phenomenal, the theatrical wallpaper and decor sensational still, the... More

Beautiful on the outside & cozy on the inside. Loved the common areas more than the room. We had a suite & it was still tight. Would have liked to have been walking distance to shops & restaurants. Concierge team couldn't have been nicer, although a bit more guidance in choosing restaurants & avoiding UBER fussy meals would've been nice.... More

I had high hopes, but was disappointed. The decor is funky to the point of hysteria, and the darkness hides lack of good cleaning - so do the over-perfumed public spaces. The service is desultory, the front desk patronizing and the food at dinner was very poor. I sent my fish back twice before I gave up.

Dear Guest, First I would like to specify that absolutely all pictures on our website are accurate and depict our property and its atmosphere as it is: a revisited Napoleon III home. As you knowingly chose us after visiting our website, our decor could impossibly come as a surprise. I can understand that decoration is a matter of taste, but... More

My daughter and I just got back from eight nights at the St. James. We stayed in room 411, which is a suite. The hotel is gorgeous, but what makes it such a stand out is the personnel. They are warm, friendly and incredibly helpful with smiles that never falter. They were so supportive of my grade school French (even... More

Love love loved our Love Pavillion at the Saint James Paris -- a total splurge on one of their nicest rooms and worth every penny. We even had our own spa on the bottom floor.

Took my girlfriend to Paris for the weekend and stayed at this hotel and was really impressed. The view you get when you come through the gates for the first time is of an amazing driveway with a fountain and a beautiful chateaux. Location wise it's perfect as you are only a 5:10 minute stroll from the Arc D'Triomphe, 5... More

My boyfriend and I escaped a group trip through Europe. The Saint James was our "hide-out/" lol. What an amazing hotel. The staff, the rooms, the service. All just perfect. We used the little Smart car for a day trip to Giverny and Versailles. We could not have had a better three days in Paris. The hotel is perfect. Thank... More
