My husband and I spent 5 nights at Saint James Paris, and had an incredible time. From the moment we arrived, we received world class customer service from every staff member we met. The property and the grounds were magnificent and well maintained. Our room, which overlooked the water fountain, was beautifully furnished, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the bathroom and all its amenities and fixtures were amazing. We dined in the restaurant for breakfast almost daily, and we had dinner one night at Bellefeuille where we had a fantastic 9-course meal. We loved how intimate, secluded, and elegant the property was. Everyone at and everything about this hotel is exceptional. We can't wait to go back.

A wonderful visit. The accommodations were excellent and the staff was extraordinarily kind and helpful. We see the Saint James as a home away from home in Paris. The location is very convenient to all of the Paris destinations.

Everything was very perfect. Wish to come back soon! This is a dreaming place where you can enjoy the silence and calm of the '800s slow life staying in the centre of Paris, enjoying a beautiful architecture style and a beautiful spa, exceptional meals at restaurants and open air time in the garden! Truly Beautiful

The St. James was an amazing retreat from the touristy areas of the city. It is tucked in this wonderful neighborhood and we found it was walking distance to nearly everywhere we went. My daughter and I started out our journey with a refresh upon arrival in the spa. Guerlain is one of my top favorite spas to visit and the one at the St. James did not disappoint. We also enjoyed the pool, steam, sauna and whirl pool to ease away the tired muscles from long days of walking. The outside garden was a lovely spot for cocktails (which were fabulous) and we enjoyed a few small bites in the library which were tasty, fresh and just perfect! Everyone on the staff went out of their way to ensure our stay was wonderful and while not a necessity booking through their St. James pick-up from the airport and being met upon leaving the plane was a wonderful luxury given we were all tired from a long trip. When the notes said we would be able to skip the customs lines I didn’t envision it would be exactly that. Not having to stand in a possibly hour plus custom line upon arrival started our trip with an ease we would not have otherwise had. We had a smaller room for our adult daughter and next to it a deluxe room for my husband and I. Both were comfortable, I slept like a baby, and had wonderful bathrooms with separate tubs and showers. I will definitely return to Paris and the St. James!

+ fabulous interior design by renowned Laura Gonzalez 
+ amazing Michelin restaurant by chef Julien Dumas
 + wonderful Château-property

 BUT: - Upon arrival at the hotel, there was no bellboy in sight. I had to ask the taxi driver to help me carrying 2 suitcases and 1 bag up the stairs to the entrance door. Very odd for a 5* property. 

 - When I entered the hotel, I saw two front desk employees talking and laughing loudly. They did not stop when I approached the front desk and greeted me only after they finished their radiant private conversation. 

 - The greeting was rough. I expressed my dissatisfaction about the rather careless and arrogant welcome. As a result to this, the female front desk employee was making fun of me giving particular looks to her colleague. The attitude toward me was one that I had to be grateful to stay at this hotel. 

 - I booked the Relais & Châteaux „enchanted City Break“ - fare including a confirmed upgrade to the next category (Junior Suite) upon arrival. The room the desk clerk assigned to me was on the ground floor, basically next to the reception, facing the parking slot and a freight lift. When I asked her if she could probably find a room with a more „inspirational“ view (like toward the garden or on a higher floor), I was „upgraded“ to a suite with no windows at all. The suite allocated had just three ship portholes. 

- The breakfast was totally careless. No salt/pepper served for an egg dish. While spending about 30 minutes in the breakfast restaurant, none of the dozen staff members would stop by at the table to ask if I would like an other coffee, juice, etc. Never experienced such an apathetic attitude during breakfast service, especially in a 5* hotel. 

 - One of the restaurant employees during breakfast service would constantly cough into his fist and touch guests’ plates etc. after, without washing/disinfecting his hands before. 

- There was only one elevator (of two) working and it was constantly occupied by staff. 

 - The bathroom floor of the suite covered in water after taking shower in bathtub. 

- The terrace restaurant floor was covered in bird poop. It has not been cleaned for days. Extremely yuck. What a shame! 

- After facing all these issues, I asked to speak with the General Manager, who met me in the lobby and asked me to follow her into her tiny office. She sat on her „executive chair“ at her desk, placing me in front of her, making me feel like I’m on a job interview. Her feedback to all the failures mentioned was simple: „We usually get good reviews“. I asked her why the Forbes Travel Guide would classify the guest experience at The Saint James with only four stars. An other simple answer: „Forbes Travel Guide is not important in France“. 

The Forbes star awards report came out only a few days ago. 

 The worst about all of this: The conversation was not on eye-level. Perhaps the lobby or the restaurant would be a more suitable atmosphere for a guest conversation. The office of the General Manager is NOT the appropriate place to review issues that a paying guest was having with the hotel. 

 Thanks to Simon (Restaurant Manager) and Jeremy (Bar Manager) for their kindness trying their utmost to turn my horrible stay into a better one. 

 Rome wasn’t build in one day and it might take The Saint James years to turn into a 5* hotel, given the fact that it’s been classified as a 4* for decades until recently. 
However, stuck mentality is hard to change. Posh interior is a nice add-on, but what makes a 5* hotel a real 5* hotel is still spotless service and attention to details. 
At the Saint James Paris the guest is secondary.

Dear Sir, I am very sorry that you did not appreciate the welcome of our team. Our maitres mots are however kindness, benevolence, and a sense of service we are praised for. We all regret we did not manage to meet your expectations. You and I have discussed your experience at length already, I will therefore not go over all the points you chose to present below. I would simply like to bring some precisions for our readers. The “freight lift” you mention is in reality the lift for our guests in wheelchairs. When you expressed your dissatisfaction, the only option we had - and that you did accept - was a top-floor suite to which we upgraded you complimentary. While our top floor rooms do not have a wide outside view, they offer a lot of skylight as the property is covered by a glass roof; each of these suites has a winter garden and is bathed in light. We are one of the few hotels in Paris to be located in a closed garden, surrounded by trees. The end of the terrace you mentioned is under the big chestnut trees and indeed there are a lot of birds in this season. The terrace is very wide and can be enjoyed in many places without any inconvenience. I prefer to meet our guests in a quiet place instead of the lobby that is a place of passage. I did listen to you and tried to exchange, I am sorry you were not open to a constructive discussion. The Saint James Paris has been recently rated and was awarded five stars by an official, independent organization. Forbes have not updated their review that dates back several years, it is outdated as can be seen from their description and pictures that are not accurate. The Saint James Paris underwent a 2-year, full renovation, it offers many more services among which a Guerlain spa and swimming pool. It has just been included among the Conde Nast Hot List, voted by travelers among the Travel + Leisure 500 Best properties in the world and 10 best properties in Paris. We also received the highest note after being recently being inspected by several travel publications. Our guests' experience is our priority. Attention to detail and pleasing our guests are our daily goals, and this is not always easy. I deeply regret that we did not manage to give you that emotion, know that the whole team and myself put all our heart into it. Yours sincerely, Laure Pertusier

This hotel should be on everyone's list of places to stay in Paris. The hotel has been recently renovated and is amazing. The staff always went out of their way to ensure that our needs were met and exceeded. The library bar is a must for a visit and cocktail/champagne! We are already planning on our return visit. My only hesitation in giving this review is that more people will find out about the hotel and this will make it difficult for us to get a reservation in the future!

From the moment we drive up to St James we were impressed. It is a lively property and we hope to be back again! Our room was beautiful with our own private terrace where we had breakfast one morning. Remi and Arnold were so helpful in arranging tours and a driver to pick us up at the airport. The whole staff was amazing! We used the bicycles all around Paris and enjoyed the park just beyond the St James property. Great location. We loved it!

Dear Guests, Thank you very much for choosing the Saint James Paris! The property is indeed impressive per se, a chateau in a private garden in Paris, but more than that, it is a place to celebrate life and enjoy moments of happiness with a significant other or friends. We are all delighted you loved your time with us and hope to have the pleasure of serving you again soon. Yours sincerely, Laure Pertusier

My daughter brought me to this lovely hotel on my covid delayed birthday trip to Paris. The beautifully landscaped expansive grounds are nestled behind a wall in the midst of a beautiful residential neighborhood. The staff was incredible and Pascale, the concierge, was attentive to our every need. We enjoyed breakfast and other meals in their Michelin starred dining room complete with a resident cat. We opted for a suite and enjoyed the extra space. You won’t go wrong if you treat yourself to this exceptional Parisian property.
