Very beautiful hotel. We stayed here for a 5 days in mid December and could not have been happier with our experience. The service was kind, warm and helpful beyond what was expected. Our room was perfect - cozy, quiet, clean, great layout, great bed. It was a wonderful stop in our European tour.

Our favorite hotel in Paris by far. Interesting rooms decor. Fantastic building which makes you feel as if you are staying at someone's palace. Excellent restaurant and a very cosy bar and an outdoor section which is fabulous in summer. The staff is helpful and very professional.

I have stayed at many hotels in Paris over the years, and the St. James has consistently scored highest in all categories and over multiple stays. From the quality of service and the personal attention to the wonderful personnel, from the unforgettable setting to the excellence of the meals, this hotel is not to be missed. Add one of the...

I picked this property from previous Trip Advisor reviews and as usual was not disappointed. The hotel is unusual in that it is a chateau in the heart of Paris. The welcome is all that you would expect from a top hotel - efficient and friendly. We arrived very early, but the staff made great efforts to get our room... More

The location of this hotel is great - perfect for walking around city center. It is quite an eclectic taste, amazing decorations as you walk in! The staff are a little stuffy but what to expect - it is Paris after all! We stayed in a room downstairs which was a bit dark, but good as you didn't hear any... More

I love to stay at places that are off the beaten path. And thats exactly what I got here. The spa was to die for and a must. The food and cocktails - AMAZING!

Dear Mrs A., Thank you very much for daring to stay off the beaten path! While conveying the feel of a country mansion in its private walled garden, our little chateau remains truly Parisian and is located just off the boutiques and restaurants of Victor Hugo avenue in an upscale neighbourhood conveniently preserved from the crowds.

The whole hotel is truly unique. Each room is an interesting layout and assortment of mirrors and skylights that maximize light. The furniture and wallpaper are whimsical but not silly and definitely take you back to another period. The concierge is very attentive and definitely a great resource for restaurants. The hotel breakfast is exquisite!
