“Ideal location, a great room and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This hotel is centrally located among great shopping, restaurants and cafes, and within walking distance to the most famous locations in Paris including the Eiffel Tower, Louvre and Notre Dame, making it an ideal base for a short stay in Paris.

We stayed here for 6 nights at the beginning of February. Our room on the 4th floor, which looked out onto the courtyard, was quiet and well maintained. The decor appeared quite new and more like that of a hotel with a higher star rating. There was more than enough room to for us and our two suitcases. The bathroom, with bath, was serviced well, and bathroom items were restocked each day. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The street and general area is well-lit at night with a diversity of fine food options easily accessible.

We would definitely stay here again!

If you want the perfect location in Paris....this is it. I have stayed here many times
and always feel like I'm returning home. The rooms have been recently renovated
(which is a plus!) but what makes this hotel so special is the staff. Anya, Teddy and
Lydia are an amazing staff. So helpful and kind, there is nothing they won't do for
you. You will want to return again and again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing courtyard are quieter. Standard rooms are quite small. Definitely worth paying for a...

I spent a week in Paris last August during their busy tourist season. It was my second visit to Paris but this time I had my mum with me, so I had to make sure whatever hotel I booked met her high standards. Hotel La Perle is not particularly flashy, but the location is really ideal. It was easy to catch a bus, train, taxi or even walk to get around.

It has lots of trendy bars and boutiques nearby and is within walking distance of all of Paris' major attractions. Right in its back yard is the amazing, gorgeous Saint Sulpice and equally gorgeous Palais Luxembourg. There was also a YSL, a department store (Monoprix - love it!), Saint Germain catherdral, and loads of trendy shops (think Armani Exchange, Swaroski etc). All a block or two away. We only took the train once to get to Versailles after an exhausting day of lunching, shopping and sight seeing. If we had more time we would have explored the metro more. There was a station about a block from the hotel.

The staff for the most part was pleasant, and special mention must be made of Teddy at the front desk. He always had a ready smile, pleasant disposition and helpful advice.

I would def. stay at La Perle again and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice, clean and well situated hotel near the heart of the action!

My husband and I stayed in the Hotel La Perle for a week, last Spring. The 6th arr. was the area I wanted to be in. Saint Germain is where all the action is,with many outdoor cafes, designer boutiques, and a short walk to the Seine. Wow, what a romantic area! La Perle was clean, affordable, and had a descent size room for Paris. Go for the larger rooms with a bathtub, in the back ,opening to a court yard, on the top floor.

My wife and I met in Paris 25 years ago; eventually we married in the south of France on December 12, 1992; then moved to Arizona, USA. This made 12-12-2012 our 20th Wedding Anniversary; naturally we wanted to spend it in Paris. As we wished to be near Saint Germain des Pres, I found Hotel La Perle on Trip Advisor.com and made a reservation for 3 nights. Knowing that the rue des Cannettes is in the middle of a lively night-life area, we requested a "superior" room on the courtyard, available as a Bed&Breakfast special (unusual for Paris!) online thru this web site. Although smaller than USA hotel rooms, our room was beautifully decorated with a 100% contemporary en suite bathroom. The ancient wood ceiling beams were authentic and the double-glazed window kept in the heat with a view over the courtyard and the surrounding buildings of Paris' historic Left Bank.

On arrival, straight from our USA flight, we were delighted to find that our room (#51 - top floor) was already available (rare for Paris) so we did not have to store our luggage until the normal 3:00PM check-in. Lydia, definitely the friendliest reception hostess we've ever met in 20 years of traveling the world, guided us to the elevator & room. After a rest, she gave us a Paris map: the metro & busses have changed a lot in recent years! and explained about breakfast in the hotel's charming indoor/outdoor courtyard the next morning. For "night people" - La Perle's breakfast is served up until 10:30AM - amazing for a Paris hotel. They had green tea & croissants & cheese & yoghurt & ham, all served with a smile in a large glass-covered room with a working fire-place; a perfect way to greet the gray Paris December mornings!!

What else to say about this "pearl" of a hotel find in the heart of Paris' charming Left Bank? It's close to many metro & bus lines; the historic St. Sulpice church & square are a stone's throw; there is free WIFI; the hot water flows freely and each room has its own heat/AC controls. All of the staff we met were courteous and helpful; they allowed us to invite a Parisian friend for breakfast one morning (we paid for that meal, of course); they called us a taxi when needed and when I forgot and left a handkerchief in the room at our departure (I'm NOT a morning person!), on request they posted it to our next address in France.

My wife (born in Champagne) says this is the best Paris hotel we've ever found and we are already making plans not to allow another 20 years to go by before we return to our beautiful City of Lights, using centrally-located, comfortable Hotel La Perle as our home-base. I do recommend that USA travelers book the larger, quieter "superior" rooms on the Courtyard side, especially in summer months when the street life down below can be quite late at night.

Room Tip: Book the Superior Rooms (slightly larger - 51 or 52 were nice) or at least one on the Courtyard as t...

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way to London.
Many good points for the hotel but the first is Lydia, the lovely lady on reception. Her bright, friendly, helpful nature cannot help but put you in the right mood for a Paris experience - she was outstanding....every hotel should have a Lydia.
Also of course the position in the city is unbeatable - St Germain itself is a great arrondissement but from there it is so easy to get to any part of Paris(if you want to leave this part!). A few great streets of restaurants and bars within 100 metres.(one in particular called Evi Evane - Greek style food of all things in Paris but so much better than in Greece - exceptional, reasonable and a nice young friendly English speaking owner. Chez Fernand also very good and of course, Les Deux Magots is just around the corner.
Great spot.
