My wife, our 13-1/2 and 12 year old children, and I stayed at Hotel Esprit Saint Germain in mid-February 2013. Like other reviewers have said, it quickly feels like your own private residence in Paris. Every member of the staff was friendly and extremely helpful.
The hotel itself is very clean and has current, up-to-date styling. The location was perfect for us, as just about all city center sites are a 10-15 minute walk or easily accessible by Metro. The lobby area is very inviting with a fireplace and two separate bar areas where guests are invited (encouraged) to help themselves to snacks, espresso, soft drinks, wine and other spirits.
Before we were married, my wife and I each lived in small studio apartments in Manhattan, and we have done a fair amount of travel to other popular cities in Europe, so we understand what to expect in room size from some four- and five-star hotels. Even of a relative basis, Esprit Saint Germain's rooms are on the small side. Our kids stayed in a "Superior" room and we stayed in a "Deluxe". Based on their dimensions, I would not stay in a "Standard" unless I was traveling alone.
All in, a lovely hotel that I would not hestitate staying in again.
