“As good as ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Second time at Le Relais St. Germain, and it is as good as ever. The owners and staff could not be nicer, or more professional. Although I speak French, my wife and friends who stayed there did not, and that was no issue at all. Spectacular breakfasts brought up to the room every morning, and dinner at Le Comptoir is a must if you stay at the hotel. (Otherwise reserve a table 3-4 months in advance.) One small tick at Le Comptoir at one of our dinners was a poultry course with the birds arriving still on the raw side. The problem was immediately resolved and at the end we were presented with a second, and most magnificent dessert, melon balls in a citrus ginger broth. I cannot recommend this hotel any higher, as everything was superb.

We just returned from Paris and a 6 night stay at the hotel RSG. What a treat. We booked this hotel after doing research with the primary goal as location: proximity to St Germaine neighborhood and the metro as a direct line to Roland Garros since we were headed to the French Open. What a surprise that it lived up to all the positive reviews in terms of service, charm and dining! I didn't really focus on the restaurant but when I saw all the people queued up to dine at Le Comptoir du Relais, it dawned on me what an opportunity we had to obtain a coveted dinner reservation by being a guest of the hotel. It did not disappoint.
Also, the staff here is minimal. The front desk person is your go to for everything. Sometimes they are quite busy so it requires a little patience. Everyone there is willing to go the extra mile to help you, in particular Marie. We enjoyed seeing her in the morning with a big smile and bon jour and ready to assist us with our plans for the day. If you manage your expectation to a boutique hotel you will not be disappointed here. It's a charming experience that will make you want to go back again and again.

Just returned from our second stay at this wonderful small hotel. It was a perfect fit for us. If you need large fast elevators, 35+ TV stations, and expansive bathrooms this is probably not a good fit. If you need a perfect location, a warm and personal staff, charming very comfortable room, a great breakfast included in the price, access to a much sought after evening dining experience this is the place for you.

We choose this hotel for location mainly. St. Germain is a good for walking all of Paris. As well as being a very interesting place in itself on a previous trip to Paris we had stayed a couple of blocks away in St. michel.

Although we did first see the hotel in a Courmet traveller mag, we we not really aware that the restaurant attached to he hotel was on of the most sort after place to book. Up to a 4 month wait, of hotel guests had preference. Also attached is a standup creperie and "tapas" place, a lot fun to be in with great food.

But the hotel itself was also great. We had a large well appointed room. The service was good and the breakfast each morning was a highlight. A small hotel with a very family like feel.

You must try this hotel at least once in your life.

Sometimes we rent apartments, this visit we stayed here in this well located hotel and loved it. The room is gigantic by Paris standards and has a terrace with table and chairs.
Following Chef Camdeborde from his days at La Regalade we knew if we stayed here that we would have that coveted dinner reservation at Le Comptoir.
Breakfasts are lovely and served in the restaurant by two charming young men who could not have been more polite and friendly as was all staff here. The Gerard Mulot croissants and breads are divine.

I stayed for two nights in May...I was in one of the tower rooms which was charming though quirky. One had to practically go outside the main entrance of the room to use the lavatory. However, the room was very spacious given european standards and was beautifully decorated. It was a bit noisy but that is a tradeoff for having such a wonderful central location. The staff was very pleasent and tried to accomodate most needs. The "tower" rooms were set off with your own elevator causing you to climb a series of stairs that are awkward so would not recommend for the infirm.

Room Tip: Choose the main part of the hotel unless you want to navigate a few awkward stairs to your room.

Beautiful hotel with stunning rooms and a perfect location that is hard to match. Excellent for couples or a romantic weekend. Only one drawback. At this price, it just needs to be perfect and not cleaning the trash bin in the room means less than perfect service. Maybe it was a one off case but I can't mark it excellent.
