“Beautiful European Style Hotel with Excellent Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

We spent 5 days at the Relais Saint Germain in early July 2012. We enjoyed everything about the hotel. Rooms were clean; service was professional; European style breakfast was excellent. Air conditioning worked; Plus there is a very well respected restaurant where we had an exceptional dinner (and guests of the hotel have preferred access as lines are always long). The location is very good (6th district) with a subway stop and bus stop right around the corner. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: The area around the hotel is busy. If you are a light sleeper, you may want to ask for a rooom away...

I have been lucky enough to visit Paris with my family at least once a year for the last 5 years. Over time we have experimented with left and right bank hotels, both boutique and big brands. Hotel Relais St. Germain has proved to be the family favorite. We just finished our second stay there in less than a year, this time with myself and two of the teenage boys. Everybody loved it. If you are looking for a boutique hotel on the left bank, this is your best value.

The staff are friendly, helpful, and always there when you need them. After a day or two you will feel like family. Beyond the wonderful people, the hotel has larger than average (for Paris), very clean, rooms, and is in a perfect location to walk (or Metro) to anything you will want to do while in Paris. Breakfast comes with the room, and is "just right:" A selection of a few high quality, fresh, items, instead of what we have seen at other places (large slections of mostly sub-par food).

Do yourself a favor and avoid learning the hard way just how much nicer this hotel is than most other left bank hotels. Make this your first left bank boutique.

We spent a week here enjoying our large room and the beautiful surrounding of this lovely hotel. The staff was charming and ever helpful. We went to nearby Luxembourg Gardens daily to work off the amazing crepes from the Comptoir window. The entire St. Germain area is so much fun so there was always something to do, but Odeon metro stop is about a two minute walk away when you're ready to travel to the major sites.I have only a tiny complaint. At these prices, I think it's silly to charge extra for an egg in such an upscale setting which has fabulous service in this picturesque breakfast room.

We stayed in June and had a wonderful experience. The hotel is beautiful and charming. The location was vibrant and picturesque. We loved it.
We walked everywhere from the Relais and enjoyed the beauty of the city and the cafes along the way.
We were well cared for by the staff. Breakfast was exceptional - delicious, gorgeously presented, and healthy. We were early for breakfast one morning and saw the staff return from a bakery with the fresh bread and croissants.
When we return to Paris we will definitely stay here.

My experience at the Relais St Germain has been wonderful and inviting.
Whether it be at the Hotel Reception or at the Comptoir Restaurant, the staff gives professional and excellent service. I enjoy the delicious and generous parisian breakfast served by Christophe who always shows great efficiency ! The rooms have lovely furnishings and are cleaned impeccably. Centrally located in St Germain next to Odeon station, it is close to fabulous shops and I love its buzz at night.
Stay there you will love it but book early !

Room Tip: Each room has its own charm.

We spent 5 nights in Paris at this charming hotel in a wonderful walking location to many popular sights - the Seine, Notre Dame, Musee D'Orsay, Louvre etc. Mornings began with a walk in the nearby Luxemborg Gardens followed by a sumptuous breakfast of breads, fresh juice, fruit,ham,cheese,eggs etc. Our deluxe room faced the street, with lots of nearby cafes. Even the nighttime activity added to the charm, but could easily be blocked out by closing the windows.The A/C worked beautifully. Our room had a nearly separate sleeping area with a sitting room adjacent and a table where we enjoyed a late afternoon glass of wine while people watching the folks below at the cafes. The hotel owner, Claudine, and her staff could not have been more gracious and welcoming. The day we arrived, we had a delicious lunch at their attached restaurant, Le Comptoir, which is run by her husband. One proviso would be if stairs are a problem. There was a narrow flight to the tiny (2 person) elevator in our section of the hotel, and a few more to our room at the landing.The circular stairwell in this 300+ year old structure might prove daunting for some. For us, it added to the charm as did the stylish blue and white decor, the window boxes with flowering plants, and the original ceiling beams. Having been there once, we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else on our next visit to Paris.

Room Tip: We had room 30.

I've stayed in several small hotels in the Saint Germain/Latin Quarter area and this one was the best. It's an easy walk to the Luxembourg Gardens or the Odeon metro station, and not much farther to Saint Michel. My family had a junior suite and a double room on the third floor. A note for people with mobility issues: the junior suite had two steps down from the entryway into the bedroom area. Also, the elevator is tiny-- it takes a maximum of three not-very-large people. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. While the hotel is located in a busy area little noise was noticeable in our rooms, which faced the street. The included breakfast is more than ample. The personnel are all very pleasant, and everyone on the front desk spoke excellent English. Highly recommended.
