“Perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

We stretched our budget to stay at this lovely hotel, and were so happy with the comfort and location. It is located two blocks from the Seine, just a few blocks from Boulevard St. Michel and also Boulevard St. Germain. If possible, upgrade a little. We stayed in a larger standard room, and it was very comfortable, but we would have liked a room with more windows a little higher in the hotel. The sitting room/lounge and the breakfast room are wonderful. The hotel, although in a bustling area, is on a quiet side street with its own courtyard, so very quiet and peaceful. We were celebrating our anniversary, and the hotel brought us champagne, which was such a nice surprise. This is a lovely, elegant, boutique hotel. We give it a very high recommendation.

Room Tip: The concierge was wonderful and took care of not only dinner reservations, but arranged tickets for...

But for a few minor details, I would rate it as "Extraordinaire".

Charming, cozy, elegant, very comfortable rooms, fine and attentive service, very well located in St Germain de Pres, great spa, wonderful private bar "de confiance".

Minor details: as with most Parisian hotels, two double beds put together make up one queen bed, and the mattresses were a bit on the soft side for me.

Other than that, top notch and great value for money.

I would DEFINITELY return and highly recommend it.

Perfect place for 2 daughters to celebrate our mother's 75th Birthday. An off the beaten path feel, yet w/in walking distance to many attractions, i.e.; Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, Notre Dame,Tuileries, Saint Germain des Pres, Luxembourg Gardens and Latin Quarter. Room wasn't ready upon arrival but staff was quick to help store our luggage and also offered us an upgrade. As a party of 3 we had a duplex, but more like triplex given the stairs; 1st level loo; then 10 stairs to 2nd level living room; then 15 steps up to bedrooms. Very pricey hotel, but all of Paris is expensive, much more so since my last recent visit - i.e. 6 Euro for a small coffee/tea everywhere! Breakfast was unreasonably expensive; 30 Euro for very, very limited buffet offering. If you walk around the block to Rue Buci there are plenty of cafes. Bicycles are available or rent their smart car. Staff was great. They sent gratis a small bottle of champagne to room for my mother's b-day. A fuse blew one night, I called front desk and they sent someone up w/in minutes. Rooms very inviting. A lounge off front desk has couches/chairs and honesty bar if you choose to relax before heading to your room. If romantic, cozy, great location, friendly staff, elegant, quaint surroundings are goals- this is your place. Would stay again. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: If you want quiet ask for room facing courtyard.

A stylish, boutique hotel hidden away in its own courtyard in St. Germain. It feels so quiet and tranquil but is steps away from all the bustling shops, cafes and galleries of St Germain. A great location within walking distance of Notre Dame, the Louvre, Musee d' Orsey and the Luxemburg
gardens. The rooms are elegant and individual, staff are very friendly, efficient and speak excellent English. Breakfast in the vaulted cellars is also very good. I cannot find fault with this hotel and will definitely return.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Relais Christine at the end of October 2012. It was our first time in Paris together and the Hotel choice was essential as it was our wedding anniversary.

The location of the Hotel is in a very desirable area (left bank) and is very quiet and peaceful with a beautiful centre courtyard on which a number of rooms face.

The hotel is 16th century with a breakfast room which is 12th century in the basement (vault). It does not have a main restuarant for evening dinner but it does have a link with a nearby restaurant (Restaurant Christine in the same street) plus there are many other good restaurants locally at a variety of price ranges. It is a small hotel (57 rooms) and feels very personal. It also has a Spa service which we did not use so can not comment on it.

The hotel is first class, its not cheap but it is a prime hotel in a great area of Paris and is price justified in our opinion. Service is excellent and they have an "honour bar" so that you can help yourself to drinks in the lounge should you wish, which is a nice touch. The room mini bar is also comprehensive, however we did not use it as its a bit pricey.

We loved Paris and will certainly be staying at the Relais Christine again next year, its in a great area with lots of atmosphere especially in the evening and really buzzing.

Room Tip: Get a room that overlooks the centre courtyard - no traffic and great courtyard views.

When we don't stay in a hotel in Paris, we stay here. It is situated in the heart of Saint Germain des Pres. The location cannot be beat! It looks small from the outside but it is big on the inside. We have stayed here three times and each time, the rooms get better and better. This last time, our room was large (Room 42). The bathroom was luxurious. The staff cannot be any nicer, professional or helpful! Can't say enough. We love it!

Wonderful quiet hotel in the midst of a fabulous neiborhood on the left bank. The rooms are unique and the jr suite comfortably sleeps three. The concierge was there for all of our needs before and during the trip. He did a wonderful job of advising us of shopping for my teenage daughter. We have stayed here many times and will return !
