“Tres chic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

Excellent excellent hotel in the 6th arrondissment !!

Excellent location within 2 mins walk to Odeon metro.
The 6th is an interesting area to explore on foot and many Parisian tourist sites are within walking distance - the Lourve, the Musee d'Orsay, Notre Dame Cathedral. Additionally, there are many interesting, gorgeous and delicious boutique shops around to purchase excellent charcuterie, bread, cheese, wine etc.

The room itself was large for parisian standards with a very comfortable bed, turndown service and even room service - extremely unusual for a boutique hotel.
The room was parisian in many ways with polished wood furniture, paintings and comfortable sofas.
The windows overlooked the main street from a balcony bed of flowers but noise was not a major issue and the heavy curtains were great to block out light.
Front desk/ concierge were extremely helpful - assisting me with restaurant reservations prior to arrival and had some good restaurant recommendations as well as itineraries.
Staff were friendly.

Breakfast is served daily at Le Comptoir and is an assortment of baked goods, sliced ham off the bone, cheese and boiled eggs.
It's during dinner and lunch service whereby Le Comptoir really shines - one of my favourite restaurants/bistros with imaginative yet down to earth food which doesn't just excite the palate but also creates a warm feeling in your tummy. I still dream of their parmentier d'or.

Beautiful !
I will definitely return.

We returned to Paris at the end of our trip to Europe and decided to once again stay in the 6th Arr. because the location can't be beat. It is very close to Notre Dame and the Louvre and although a longer walk, accessible to Eiffel Tower within a half hour.
We chose to stay at Relais St. Germaine, a lovely hotel on a great street that offers many restaurants and cafes nearby. We arrived by train and took a cab to the hotel. We were immediately met by a young man who took our luggage and brought it to our room. The people who worked at the desk explained everything to us including the complementary breakfast that is served in an adjoining restaurant off of the reception area. This restaurant, "Le Comptoir", is open for dinner and always has a line. So if you want dinner there talk to the hotel about reservations. The breakfast was very nice and served elegantly with white linen. Croissants, breads, soft or hard boiled eggs, meat, cheese, yogurt, fruit, tea, coffee and juice. Perfect for starting the day.
We did have one problem at the hotel. When we checked in we just dropped our bags and started out for a day of sightseeing. When we returned to the room it was late and we just wanted to go to sleep. Unfortunately we realized that the room reeked of cigarette smoke. (We had requested a non-smoking room when we first emailed the hotel to book the room). It was a little older room with heavy fabric drapes and shaggy rug and the smoke smell permeated them. Even opening the window didn't help. Though it was 10:30 pm I called the front desk and spoke with someone about our problem. They were extremely helpful and gracious. That evening there was not another room available but they offered to send someone up to try to use a de-oderizing product in the room. At this point it was too late in the evening for us to get involved with that and just asked that the room be switched the next day. We packed up all our luggage again anticipating this. We spoke with reception again first thing in the morning before leaving on an all day trip to the Loire Valley. The gentleman on duty was great. He did not see that we had requested a non-smoking room. I did have a copy of my email to show him but didn't really need it. He was going to make us happy anyway. He told us to go and enjoy our day and that when we arrived back that evening we would have a new room and our luggage would be in it. We were delighted when we came back to be in a newly decorated, larger and most importantly smoke-free room. This room had a great view, lots of space, comfortable king bed and very good bathroom. Sometimes when you travel you encounter a problem that can't be helped. This hotel rectified it and reacted to our needs. They also said that it is probable that the entire hotel will be smoke free within the year.

On our 12th visit to Paris since 1999, we stayed four nights in a junior suite at Hotel Relais Saint-Germain. We have previously stayed in both hotels and weekly apt rentals in the 8th, 7th and 6th Arr. The hotel's location provides a terrific base for venturing around Paris either by Metro (the 4 line is a 5 minute walk) or by bus, as well as by foot. The room (# 44 ) was large and all facilities were clean and in good repair. Breakfast was simple but adequate. Free wifi worked well.
Staff were responsive and helpful. We ate one of our meals at Le Comptoir. Chef Yves Camdeborde was a welcoming host and presented a wonderful meal at a modest price for the quality and sophistication of the meal. (Perfectly prepared fois gras and cepes, and a large cheese selection and simple but elegant dessert). The wines by the glass were both excellent and a bargain! The Chef's attention to detail in the food and presentation by the wait staff is noteworthy- a class act.
The hotel staff provided an excellent dinner recommendation for another night's repast.
We have already rebooked a room for our next visit to Paris.
Merci bien Claudine et Yves Camdeborde

Room Tip: Higher floors would be better in escaping City traffic noise if the windows are open.

We have stayed in many Saint Germain hotels, from Hotel Buci to Aubusson and recently booked Relais Saint Germain because we wanted to get reservations at the restaurant,. We fell in love with the hotel. It is very charming - our room was beautiful. We were on the first floor on the street side and worried about noise but it was very well isulated and we didnt hear a thing. Staff were nice and helpful. We got prompt and curteous assistance to all our email requests for assistance with reservations and several changes we requested. The breakfasts were exceptional. I also think, having stayed in numerous areas of St Germain, that this is our favorite location - close and central but removed just enought to iffer a little more peaceful surroundings.

Friendly staff. Very nice room (Rm 34.) Great French breakfast. 1 block to Rue St-Germain and Odeon metro station. What more would you want? The Hotel Relais Saint-Germain definitely contributed to our having a perfect 40th wedding anniversary celebration in France.

I have stayed at this hotel many times. And as always a great experience. The staff helped us make dinner reservations at at the last hour. They also spent a lot of time helping us find the IMAX theater that we wanted to go to. They also took the time in getting to know us when we were home sick for our loved ones at home. They listen and make you feel so comfortable in this hotel. When they see you outside of the hotel, they ask you how are you enjoying your say. They treat you with respect and kindness at all times. The breakfasts are wonderful. The ham and cheese are exceptional that come with the breakfast. The beds are so comfortable. The hotel is located in the perfect location of Paris. Line 4 is a five minute walk to get the metro to the Gare du Nord so that you can catch the train to the airport. If you like vanilla cream, the restaurant makes the best one in Paris. I have already booked my stay for next year.

This hotel is clean, tidy, well maintained and located in a great part of the city. Our room was well apportioned. The bed was a bit hard but the room was comfortable to sleep in as it was air conditioned, quiet, and the heavy curtains provided a dark room by blocking out ambient light. Breakfast was included and it was by far the best we've had. Fresh croissants, baguette, orange juice, fruit, yogurt, cheese, ham, boiled egg, coffee, tea. The hotel is well situated to the metro, taxi stand and bus stops.
