“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

My wife and I spent a week at the St. Jacques very recently. The pictures we've seen don't do the place justice. It was beautiful, charming, and a perfect representation of everything Paris and the Latin Quarter are supposed to be. It's in a great location; close to the Metro and restaurants, but a just little bit off the beaten path. The staff were very helpful, and our room was breathtaking. We loved our little balcony, the molding on the ceiling, and the painting on our wall. We never had breakfast there; the crepes on the street just called my name every morning. All in all, I just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay there.

Room Tip: Get the superior room; It's worth the extra money.

Well located in the Latin Quarter, near the Panthéon and the Sorbonne, this charming hotel is great value for money in Paris. Of course the building is old, but it is clean and organized, with staff polite and helpful. The rooms are small but very welcoming, with heating and air conditioning, although lacking a fridge ... The bathrooms are small but functional. The price is well worth it!

Room Tip: Warning: The elevator does not reach the top floor!

This is the second time that we have stayed at the St. Jacques and the experience was magical. The staff was extremely attentive to our needs, spoke very good English, and were helpful. We had a nice room (the bed was very comfortable) with a balcony and seating area overlooking the Rue de Ecoles. We ate breakfast one morning at the hotel and it was fine. This hotel is a very short walk to the Latin Quarter and the Pantheon is two blocks away. The location is in the heart of the University of Paris, so the vibrancy of the young population is evident in the surrounding area. The greatest assets of the location - a Metro stop (Maubert), wine shop, fromagerie, and boulangerie are within a block of the hotel. Bottom line - guests are treated well at the St. Jacques and the central location is superb, yet one does not feel as if you are surrounded by tourists! We will stay there again in the future.

We were very happy with our choice of Hotel Saint Jacques in Paris. It is located in an extremely great area for easy walking - just a few blocks from the Ile de la Cite. We used the HOHO bus and could catch it right in front of the Notre Dame Cathedral. We walked throughout the Latin Quarter, Saint Germain, Ile de la Cite, and also the Louvre area without using any means of transportation. We especially enjoyed evening strolls through the Latin Quarter area very close to the hotel. The subway also was very convenient to the hotel. We did not eat at the hotel for breakfast as we wanted to experience the fresh breakfast pastries each day at a local bakery. There was one right on the way to the Ile de la Cite area from the hotel. The rooms were very comfortable, although on the small side. The bed was comfortable and the bathrooms were well equipped. Lighting could have been better. The rooms were decorated exactly how we would picture a French hotel to be - very much French ambiance. If we went back we would definitely stay at this location again.

Hotel was very accommodating to our group needs. Rooms were air conditioned almost too well (we froze the first night). Perfect location just blocks from Notre Dame. Just a few blocks from the metro. Easy metro access to the airport and all major train stations. Hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful. Beds were comfortable, rooms spacious enough.

Had a great stay - a hotel with loads of character and the staff were helpful and friendly. It was easy to explore Paris from here and the surrounding streets were great to explore. I liked the fact that we could leave our luggage on the last day 'til it was time to go to the station. The only thing I didn't like (being English) was the lack of kettle/tea in the room (I do appreciate that this isn't the French custom but it would be a nice touch).
I would happily go back to the Hotel Saint-Jacques.

Stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. Very impressed with friendliness of the staff, they were polite and helpful. They gave us directions and maps for the area, plus let us keep our bags in reception on our last day. Which meant we didn’t need to carry them around, plus meant we didn’t have to pay to keep them in the train station. The hotel is an art deco style building, which gives it lots of character and makes it a joy to stay in. The room was clean and considering it was in the heart of Paris there was no traffic noise so a good nights sleep was had. We had the standard double, the only slight downside was a ¾ bath which for someone being 6 foot makes for a cramped experience. But this is more due to the apartment living and lack of space in Paris, so it is really only a minor point. The shower was first rate.
The location is perfect, just down from Notre Dame, and the metro stop. An excellent place to stay and the rates are ok. There are supermarkets and shops nearby, I would suggest stocking up on water and food in these shops. It is far cheaper than buying while you are out. An excellent place to stay when visiting Paris
Would happily go back.
