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

I highly recommend this hotel. Staff are very friendly, rooms and beds are comfortable, very clean bathroom. Quiet location. Try to get a room up high and in the front of hotel. We had a balcony. For the price, location, this is the hotel to stay at. Do the Tuk tuk tour, extremely fun and entertaining. The boat tour is... More

Used as a stop-over travelling back to uk. Friendly hotel. Good bathrooms and bathroom sundries. Spent slightly more than I usually would and though the usual 'small rooms paris' applies I did not regret it and got a reasonable deal from the hotel - better than the booking sites. The bistro - not related - next door was ok though... 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.
