This is a good hotel in a good location. The staff is very friendly, especially Antoni. Nice fellow. The room could use an upgrade but was good overall. The location is good for people who want to be in a quieter part of the city. I would stay here again.

The receptionists were all quite friendly. The location was good (short walk to the RER train which also gets you to the airport and back), but a bit far from the "heart" of the Latin Quartier. The room itself was very small and cramped. The AC was disabled (for cooling) because it was not "summertime" eventhough it was summer-like temperatures... More

This writer very seldom brands a hotel "poor"; but Relais Saint-Jacques left a dismal impression. However, if you like a cramped little double room; if you welcome a broken room-safe which they promise to repair, but do nothing; if you positively delight in having your credit-card payment force-converted into your home currency at an extortionate rate, then possibly this is...

The room we had was small/cramped, (if you want a larger room in France – book into a chain hotel (such as Holiday Inn or Novotel)) clean with a window facing the back yard – no view but a wall. The bathroom was small, with complimentary toiletries and bathrobes. The bathrobes took up a lot of the available wall space... More

We think that we first found this hotel in 1995 and nearly every time we visit Paris we choose this hotel. However it had been 6 years since we had last stayed. There are several reasons for returning to the Relais Saint-Jacques. It is only a short walk from the RER B line which comes directly from the airport, the... More

The Hotel Relais St.Jacques is an excellent choice for a couple. We stayed a week in October and could not have been more pleased. The location was excellent in the Latin Quarter. The hotel was modern and clean. Rooms a bit small. The staff were all-stars beginning with Sandy. Also Stephanie , Morgan , Cyril and Cindy deserve to be... More

We spent 5 nights in this lovely hotel on my first visit to Paris. The bedroom was delightful even if the bathroom was a little small but in this beautiful old building it couldn't be helped. Staff were very friendly and knowledgable. Great area very close to the Sorbonne and only a 15 minute walk to Notre Dame. Room was... More

Dear Madame, We thank you for your very nice review. We are very glad to read that you have spent a nice time in Paris and especially in our hotel. Regarding the rose wine, we will seriously think about it. As we already propose red and white wines, the Rosé is typical in France even if the most of our... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
