We first visited la belle juliette in October 2012 and made the mistake of beginning our visit on a Monday, immediatley after our wedding. To warn others in advance, there is some serious construction next door at the Monastry mid week. The month we first visited was really really noisy and it seriously affected our honeymoon trip. The hotel moved our room as far away from the noise as possible, but it was still a bit noisy.
The rooms are beautifully decorated and are not thaat small - pretty normal if not a bit bigger for Parisian standards. The blackout curtains are FABULOUS - made us sleep in though and missed our early morning!! But a wonderful night sleep. Thick luxurious curtains that blocked out every bit of light!
The pool is lovely and underground, heated and in the spa area. I did not have a spa treatment as they were quite pricey (around 100-150 euros for a massage), but we did enjoy the swimming pool which has a current button in it so you can enjoy swimming against a current.
We decided to give the hotel another go when returning this August for my birthday as we did really like the area and facilities in the hotel. This time we visited on a weekend and I cannot fault the service or hotel at all. The room we had was lovely and tried breakfast this time. It is a bit pricey for what you get - 25 Euros for a coffee, fresh orange juice and some pastries - I would not go for the breakfast next time but instead enjoy the vast amount of cafes around the area.
The check in process was good and i absolutely loved the scent in the hotel and think it was a great touch.
The hotel is located in a fantastic area - cherche midi is a great road, towards the bottom end of it are lovely interior designy type shops and up this end of it nice restaurants and a lovely wine bar. Its mimutes away from Montparnassee station which is on a lot of different metro lines.
All in all - a fantastic stay and really confirmed that would be visiting again next time. I might add at this point though - we had booked via a special offer on Mr and Mrs Smith and the rooms were a bit cheaper - but I probably wouldnt be prepared to pay full price for this hotel - we did not think it was worth the full price.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Belle Juliette. The discreet luxury of a four-star hotel and the charm of an address that visitors and Parisians will give to their most demanding, cultured friends. In the pure Parisian tradition of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, the hotel is guided by a modern vision of romanticism and urban conviviality. Exceptional service with particular attention to hospitality, guests' well-being, calm and tranquility... All in the heart of bustling Saint Germain. Corinne and Pascal Moncelli, the owners of the hotel, have decided to breathe new life into an establishment that had been left to abandon on the rue du Cherche-Midi by telling the story - or rather stories - of a famous historical personality. This star of her time lived in the 19th century, frequented all the intellectuals and politicians of the era, was blessed with exceptional beauty, had an extraordinary love life and - above all - excelled in the art of receiving. The popular literary salon that she organised from the tender age of 15 attracted the greatest minds of the time and continued until her death, age 72! It is Juliette Recamier - famously known as La Belle Juliette - who gives her name to this new hotel. ... more less
