4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The view as you enter through the gates is fabulous. A country house in the middle of Paris. Easy on site parking, friendly reception. Our room was upgraded but that is not necessarily a good thing. The Junior suite is a tiny bedroom, small bathroom and a small sitting room downstairs with a very narrow and steep winding staircase between... More

This hotel is one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed. The décor in the lobby, restaurant, bar and room was absolutely gorgeous and quite romantic! It was well worth the money. Book a suite!

Our favourite hotel in Paris the George Cinq Four Seasons has some serious competition with The St James. The staff are as good as the George Cinq who I think are the best in the world. The rooms though not as luxurious as the George Cinq are much larger. The price is 50% less on average here. The breakfasts are... More

Saint James Paris definitely has that WOW effect. This wan't my first trip to Paris. We have stayed at other hotels in the city and I must agree with the other reviews that the rooms are quite large for Paris, and the neighborhood is lovely. The only thing I would add is watch out how much rose you drink in... More

My wife and I spent 4 days in Paris at the Saint James last month and could not have been happier. The hotel itself is beautiful. And the staff - especially the concierge team - could not have been more helpful. Highly recommended!

We stayed in a suite with interconnected rooms. The rooms are huge compared to the other high end hotels that we've stayed in Vince and London. The service is excellent. You can walk to Major landmarks ( Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe). Metro station is within 5 minutes walk. Provides free in room Wi-Fi with good signal. The place... More

Clean, good value for the price! Very much centrally located, small rooms, but would recommend for a short visit! Close to the subway station and other cafés and bakeries! Continental breakfast was included for us! It was okay, nothing special! Coffee was good!

I think the reviews are almost unanimous that is a wonderful hotel. For Paris, the rooms are very large and many are suites. The service is outstanding and the staff is constantly aware of your needs to ensure a great stay.
