“Watch Paris from your balcony”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Maison St Germain is a charming and unique property, hybrid of an apartment and a hotel. If you are looking for something a little more authentic and don’t need some amenities of a hotel like restaurant and a health club, this is a great option.

Firstly, you cant beat the location. It as a nice walk to many of the sites. The neighborhood has a nice mix of bars and restaurants that locals go too as well. There is a grocery store and a great Patisserie(Paul) right down the street. There is also a subway station right across the street.

We had the top floor two bedroom unit which, had two balconies overlooking St. Germain and a kitchen. The décor was somewhat traditional. My only negative is that a couple of chairs needed their cushions replaced.

There is an office that has staff from 8 am to 8 pm I believe. They were very helpful when we needed a little assistance and spoke English exceptionally well. They happily called restaurants or tour companies and also provided local suggestions for food etc. One staff member (M), was one of the nicest and most genuinely helpful hospitality staff I have ever encountered in all of my travels.

There are a few quirks. The elevator is very small like many old buildings in Europe. We could barely put two people and our luggage in the elevator. Another small annoyance, despite the hefty room rates, they don’t do dishes of any kind. I realize that this is more of an apartment rental than hotel but at 500 Euro a night, I would expect the housekeeping staff to tend to a few plates in the sink.

I would happily stay here again and have already recommended it to a few people I know heading to Paris.

My boyfriend and I stayed in The Studio for four nights in February. We're both 18 and it was our first holiday on our own but the staff at La Maison were unbelievably helpful, emailing before the trip to catch up and ask about arrival arrangements etc. all in perfect English. On arrival the staff were so kind and helpful and not patronising at all. The apartment was gorgeous with everything you could want with all dishes and crockery etc supplied. The staff marked the local supermarket and bakery on a map for us which were a minutes walk away so very handy. The apartment was cleaned to a very high standard daily. The location was absolutely perfect; we walked to Notre Dame (10/15mins) and took Les Cars Rouges from there or waked on across the river. La Près Saint Germain metro station is very close to the hotel though so you can go from there easily, we just enjoyed the walk! There is a great cafe/bar opposite and many lovely bars just down the road if you turn right coming out if the hotel. This holiday was absolutely made by staying in this wonderful hotel and we will certainly be returning, I can't recommend it enough!

Room Tip: The Studio was excellent and I'm sure all the other apartments are too.

First of all, this is the best location you can possibly stay in Paris. Lots of restaurants and shops, easy access to everywhere. The hotel was great for our family weekend. The apartment is really nice, good size and very well decorated. The kitchen means you can buy fresh bagettes and croissants at the nearby Paul and have breakfast in the apartment before heading out. Staff was really nice and helpful as well. No doubt we'll stay there again next time we go.

My wife, my 3 yrs old kid and myself for a long weekend in Paris for sightseeing, shopping and one day at Disney.
At La Maison the feeling is like being at home. It is apartments with service, not tourist chic hotel; no lobby, no glamour look from outside, is like go back home when you go at Blvd St Germain 158. Apparently small details make the difference: design, furniture, colours make my wife happy, fully equipped kitchen (nespresso machine, mwave oven, etc included) make me happy, space to play make my kid happy.
MUST try to understand...

Room Tip: 5th flloor apartment was my choice, great view, two windows facing Blvd St Germain
