“My kind of Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

This was our fourth trip to Paris. We have finally found our home in Paris - The Relais Christine. There is a process I go through when selecting a hotel. My first priority is location. Once I've selected that I try to find the best hotel in that area. We prefer being in a central location on the left bank. In 2010 we stayed in another hotel around the corner. It was okay but nothing special. The Relais Christine is exactly what we wanted. Our room was beautifully decorated with a door to a wonderful patio. Here we were in the middle of this great city with our own garden. The air-conditioning was perfect (most important for my husband). We had breakfast in the hotel each morning. The food and service were excellent. I loved the ambiance.

We found that the staff was not only professional and helpful but also warm and friendly.

I am already planning our next visit in 2014. As soon as I book my flight, I will book our room at the Relais Christine.

Everything about our stay was perfect.

Dear Guests,

Firstly, we wish to express our pride to be selected as your new home in Paris! This is always a pleasure for us to become a favourite address after a first stay. Moreover, being considered as special, warm and welcoming is the best reward to us.

I've been to Paris before but this is our first stay at the Relais Christine hotel. The front desk staff were always friendly and courteous. Our room faced a quite courtyard. There is no restaurant in the hotel but that's ok with us, too many wonderful places to eat at nearby. A good breakfast is served in the lower floor which has loads of atmosphere from the remains of an old Abby. I like the location, it's on a quiet street in a busy part of Paris. Lots to do and see in a small area. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

... because rue christie is exactly the small parisian street you've been hoping to discover. and it leads you directly to the lovely relais christine. a small quaint hotel in the middle of it all. the hotel rooms are nice and each is unique, much larger and nicer than buci nearby. and the staff incredibly friendly. they helped us often with funny requests. but my favorite thing was the bikes they have for you to use. they are in much better condition than the parisian bikes. there are not many things better to do in this world than to ride through the streets of paris with the one you love.

This was a first visit to Paris for my husband and me. The trip was wonderful and long awaited but the Relais Christine is beyond compare on every level. The tucked away (yet perfectly convenient) location, the impeccable and tasteful charm and the outstanding service. Everyone at this beautiful boutique hotel treated us with such welcoming kindness. Every evening we wished a wonderful time upon leaving for dinner and always welcomed back with the warmest smile. Our room (40) was perfection. It was quite large for a European hotel room. I will advise the ladies to perhaps bring some sort of lit mirror or a mirror that you can carry out of the bathroom into the bedroom for applying make-up. The bathroom lighting is no conducive to applying well blended make-up. The shower with a rain head and separate bathtub with warming bar for the towels, his/her bathrobes and French toiletries more than made up for the little extra time the mascara took to apply. Oh and I must mention the breakfast. Glorious! The setting, the yogurt - it's Dannon but it's not - it's Danone. Honestly, delicious! Please book this hotel with the greatest confidence. Bon Voyage!

Room Tip: Several people in our travel party asked to see other rooms. Some are quite small (to be expected...

Our trip was for leisure, and we planned for only 2 daily adventures, and Relais Christine was the perfect home base. The Latin Quarter area is full with great restaurants and easy access to many of the more famous sights. We took a loft room which was comfortable and well kept. Nice bath and shower in the cramped, but very comfy bathroom.

Service was A++, with a nice breakfast spread in a serve yourself setting.

Get to breakfast early for the most variety. Enjoy the honor bar in the sitting room and meet some of your fellow travelers. Good shopping right nearby and great local food as well.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The loft room is warm in the top sleeping area, be aware in summer months. The earlier you get to br...

My wife and I recently spent three days at this hotel. I have experience with at least ten Paris hotels over the years ranging from the the very well known to much lesser establishments. This is the one I would go back to without question. We arrived long before check-in but were in our room in 20 minutes, no problem, no charge. Our room was not large but that is Paris. But the room was very pleasing, quiet though right on the street level, comfortable and clean. The staff was consistently helpful, knowledgeable and polite. The location is excellent for those who like to walk and Paris is the "Walking City" non pareil. Close to the river, numerous good restaurants close by including a Jaques Cagna establishment across the street and within a 10 minute stroll of Notre Dame in one direction and the Quai D'Orsay in the other. We are already planning our next stay.

Room Tip: If you can spend a bit more, ask for one of the rooms on the garden.

This is a lovely little hotel in a quiet area in central Paris. I have no complaints about this hotel. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive and every room is decorated differently in their own beautiful way. Would stay here again!
