“Traditional Hotel with great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

We stayed for four nights on the recommendation of a friend. We were a group of 4 adults and three children. It is a traditional Parisian hotel, small and fancy. The rooms were clean enough (as long as you didn't look at the dust on the picture frames). The superior rooms had much nicer furnishings and amenities than the standard rooms. All the bathrooms were modern and clean. The staff was kind and helpful. The breakfast was perfect even for our 8 year old picky eater. The location was very convenient to public transport and within walking distance to the Pantheon and Notre Dame. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Paris.

Room Tip: Book a Superior room, it's worth the extra money for a nicer room.

Hotel is great place to begin your Paris experience. The rooms are individually decorated and very comfortable. The English speaking staff was very helpful and the location is great. The neighborhood is full of restaurants and the main boulevards of St. Germain and St. Michel are only a couple of blocks away. Notre Dame and the Ile St. Louis are also within walking distance. Instead of the hotel breakfast, we had breakfast every morning at a cafe across the street that served coffee and crossants for only 3 euro. The hotel also has excellent free wifi. We first stayed in Room 15 on the 3rd floor which was a little small. Our next stay was in Room 22 which had a balcony and was wonderful.

Room Tip: Room 22 is great.

nice hotel, clean, well appointed. courteous and helpful staff. my single room was quite small and on sixth floor, elevator only until the 5th. safe for single woman. bad view but didn't matter as in a great location. near metro station, flea market, bread and cheese shops, saint germain, shops, walking distance from notre dame, rue mouffetard.

Room Tip: if dont want to carry bags make sure your room is not on the 6th floor.

I've stayed at the St Jaques on numerous occassions; with family, friends and most recently with my boyfriend and I simply wouldn't contemplate staying anywhere else.
The staff are very polite and friendly and speak excellent English, should you be a little lacking in language skills. The rooms are beautifully furnished, many of them with pleasent views and rarely noisy except in the height of summer.
But best of all is the location, literally five minutes from Notre Dame. You won't get a better hotl for the same money anywhere in Paris.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good but if you are a particularly light sleeper as for a room facing away from th...

Stayed here for my third visit over a span of 12 years. We return to Hotel St. Jacques for the location, relative value for Paris hotel rates, and a taste of French charm. The rates are higher than they used to be (even factoring the currency fluctuations). But overall, I still think this is a solid bet for first time visitors and return visits. The bathrooms have been newly updated which is a good improvement. In my experience, the service has been consistently adequate and helpful.

About the location: super convenient to Notre Dame, walking distance to many things and the Metro is not far away. We stumbled upon a Saturday morning fresh market a block away that charmed the socks off some of my family who were first time visitors to Paris. A fair selection of cafes nearby as well as a shop for water, etc.

I would recommend this hotel to couples looking for a romantic get away. It's in a great location and our room was on the 4th floor looking out over busy rue des ecoles and we loved it. The hotel is gorgeous and clean and the beds were comfy. Brigit on the front desk is lovely and we really enjoyed our stay, however, some of the other staff were not as friendly or helpful as she was. We opted not to go for the breakfast but went down the street instead every morning for coffee and pastries. There are a few good restaurants on the street and a great little convenience store right across the street so you have a good selection for water, wine and munchies. St. Germain is very close and we spent a lot of time there and Notre Dame and Cluny Museum are both a very short walk. I would recommend this hotel absolutely : )

Room Tip: I would not want to be on the first floor it would be very noisy. We are Canadian so are used to re...

We had stayed at this hotel a year ago and were over the moon with our room 25, featuring a wraparound balcony and amazing views. This year when we arrived, we were given room 16, one floor down and no balcony. A bit disappointed at first, we quickly adjusted and enjoyed the magnificent murals and elaborate crown molding of the room.

Room 16 is just off the elevator and occasionally we would hear a bit of noise in the hallway, but none from any of the other rooms. The street noises are minimal and for me are part of the charm of being in country so far from home. I loved the sounds of unfamiliar voices, sirens and traffic patterns. We slept soundly and comfortably every night.

We love the neighborhood, especially the charming restaurants and cafes just a short walk up the hill. We really enjoyed our dinner at The Petit Prince de Paris, also around the corner.
This is our favorite little corner of Paris to stay and we can't wait to come back.
