We stayed 3 nights at this wonderful hotel. Close to sights and restaurants yet set back in on a quiet rue. The service is outstanding. We did spluge for the larger room so it was a bit expensive but I would say worth it. Felt like a 5 star! We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this hotel.

We had the pleasure of a week at Relais Christine in February 2011.

Every element of our stay was superb - from the greeting to our departure.

The staff is unfailingly helpful, informative, efficient, and proactive. The rooms are beautiful - a bit rustic with modern amenities and fixtures. Location of the hotel is perfect. In addition, our room was perfectly quiet.

I've been a guest at several four and five star Paris hotels and Relais Christine is at the top of the list. I highly recommend you put the RC on the top of your list of considered properties.

Lovely clean, decor and nice sized rooms in a fairly central location. Great access to a variety of restaurants and bars.
Having said that, I would advise persons of the female persuasion that the bathroom need an additionnal small table : the is not enaough space for the usual kit of a women travelling for some days...The breakfast is excellent and fast served. The staff is very nice and helpful. We like the ambiance of a small hotel with all the niceties of a large hotel, but with the intimacy and friendliness that comes in a smaller place

This was my first time to Paris and based on numerous reviews, I decided to book at Relais Christine. I would come back in a heartbeat! The rooms are very quaint, service is amazing, food is great and the location, on the Left Bank, cannot be beat. Within walking distance to Notre Dame, D'orsay, the Louvre and numerous shopping districts and restaurants. I even walked to the Catacombs, which was a bit far but very much worth it, given the amazing scenery. I will definitely be back.

You enter the Relais Christine from a quiet left bank street through a beautiful courtyard, a courtyard which didn't appear to have any other use. The lobby and public area of the hotel is attractive, although very compact. The hotel's location is excellent for walking to many of Paris' sites and metro stops to get to the all the others. There are lots of hotels in this area and while this is a very good hotel, there are likely many others of comparable quality and perhaps better value. Front desk personnel were personable and efficient in all dealings, with excellent recommendations and reservation service for meals. The lobby seating area features very comfortable furniture and an overpriced honor bar. ONE general use computer, with complementary internet access, is in a hallway in the lobby- more on internet later. Our room was a Junior suite on two levels-the main level featured a very nice ensuite with a very creamped living area. The upper level was up a steep, narrow stairway to a large sleeping loft and closet. On the plus side the bathroom ( including towels and toiletries) and the bed ( and linens) were very good. The cramped main floor was dark and not overly comfortable. And of course with the bathroom on the main floor and bed up, navigating a dark, narrow strairway a night was a bit harrowing. The overall decor was rather plain and dark- not nearly as rich feeling as one would expect in a 4 star house. In-room Internet had to be purchased through a third party vendor which was not user friendly and at nearly US$11 per hour not inexpensive. Why do expensive hotels charge for internet access and inexpensive hotels and B&B's offer it for free? While the room was a pleasant enough place to stay at US$530 per night it was not very good value- although our deal included one bottle of Champagne on the first day. Breakfast was about US$40 each in the attractive vaulted basement area- good quality but no variety from day to day and again not a great value. If 4 stars is important to you and money is no issue, Relais Christine will provide you a very pleasant stay.

Dear madam, dear sir,

We thank you for taking the time to write a review on your past stay at Le Relais Christine and for mentionning its good aspects, such as our concierge recommandations, which are, we believe, so important during a Parisian stay, our bed and linen, that have been changed recently in order to improve with the best quality, and our location, as a peaceful heaven in the heart of lively Saint Germain des prés.
We are also delighted to inform you that we do now offer complimentary WIFI access and that our townhouse entrance, has been refreshed with more contemporary tons, in order to provide our guests with a new cosy atmosphere.
We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again soon so that you can see the changes.

Sincerely,

The location was fabulous -really difficult to beat as it was walking distance from some of the best spots in Paris. However , the hotel , whilst good, was not as good as the St James Club in Paris which is part of the same group. The bedroom was small and I wasn't made to feel special in any way.

Dear madam, dear sir,

We thank you for taking the time to write a comment about our location. In regards to the size of the room, we regret ours did not reach your expectations, as indeed, rooms are not as large on the left bank than on the right bank.

We are however delighted that you do find the Saint James Club at your convenient and we are sure that your experience in their newly renovated rooms will be delightful.
