“Christmas in Paris”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

From the beginning of our trip the staff was outstanding and always very helpful. I had several questions before leaving the US and they would email me immediately with an answer. Our family of 5 had plenty of room in the large superior suite. It was very spacious and had two bathrooms which was nice. The location was great with a lot of restaurants and cafes in walking distance. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

I missed something I guess. I found it to be a nice 4 star hotel with some ups and downs. The location is quite nice and some of the staff are helpful, some not so much. It's just not a great hotel, and it's actually fairly expensive (comparable in price to many 5 star properties).

They nickel and dime you to death. The breakfast is expensive and it's far from lavish. They not only fail to provide coffee or tea makers for the room, but they don't even provide complimentary water (which costs what...35 cents a bottle). But whatever you do, do not accept their "offer" to arrange an airport pickup (for 155 euros one way!). A taxi is about 30 euros from Orly (10 miles from Paris) and under 50 euros from CDG, 16 miles from central Paris.

I think you get the point. A decent hotel, but unless the standards for Paris hotels is very low, I'd take these reviews with a nice dose of salt.

Dear sir,

We are sorry to understand that your stay with us has not reached your expectations as our only goal is to have our guests leaving Le Relais Christine as happy as possible.

However, we are a bit surprised by the fact that you considered the airport private transfer too expensive, firstly because we have a very competitive price compared to most of the 4 and 5-star Parisian hotels and also because our concierges never make a reservation without confirming the price with our guests.
We are also pleased to inform you that our in-amenities vary -among them stands a bottle of water-, but we may have provide you with a different one during your stay.

Still, we hope you do not remain on your first opinion: I will be delighted to personnally assist you while making a future reservation.

Kind regards,

Jean-Luc Chomat

This fabulous little hotel was a true gem. Its on a quiet little street on the Left bank. A great location close to everything and even if you have a room on the street, since its such a quiet street, it is fine. Fabulous linens, terrfic beds and beautiful ambience. I would definately stay there again.

just spent 2 nights at this hotel, and i cannot sing their praises enough. their staff, the location, the actual hotel itself, each one of them was amazing. the staff could not be friendlier or nicer and every single one of them was extremely helpful. the hotel is on a very quiet street, our room was super - we were upgraded to a room with a bedroom loft - we loved it! the staff could not be friendlier or nicer. even the exercise room is in an old, yet beautifully decorated one of a kind room. the neighborhood has wonderful boutiques, spent hours just wandering the streets around the hotel. cannot wait to go back there again! a totally, different, one of a kind hotel. not cheap, but worth every penny!

Ok you do get what you pay for. This is a pricey place to stay, but subject to your budget, it is well worth the experience for a wonderful REAL warm Parisian place to live for a few nights. Staff are courteous and super helpful. Rooms are not massive, considering the tariff, but very clean and stylish. Location is excellent. Breakfast is in a wonderful underground cavern made of ancient stonework. The upstairs foyer is warm and welcoming - you really feel like you are staying as a guest in a traditional mansion filled with quaint historic art and curios, There is also a nice bar lounge to relax in after a busy day sight-seeing.

You can also enjoy free bike hire to tour the city - if you're brave enough to take on the locals on the streets!

Dear Guest,

Our only goal at Le Relais Christine is to have our guests feeling at home with a perfect service: we are delighted to read that you felt this way with us thanks to the room, breakfast and honesty bar.
Luckily, our 17th century townhouse still has this Parisian Rive Gauche atmosphere that is mostly appreciated by our guests.
Looking forward to welcoming you again soon, we wish you all the best for 2013!

The hotel is located in a perfect location in a nice quiet street, near to lovely restaurants and cafe's. The hotel has its own garage, which is a huge benefit in the heart of Paris. The rooms are all beautifully decorated and the beds very comfortable. Bathrooms are beautiful. The spa is a wonderful extra and so relaxing after a long day of shopping and sightseeing. It felt like coming back home each day. The breakfast is really superb, quick and efficient service and lovely fresh ingredients. They offer delicious pastries and a different selection of incredibly delicious cakes each day, the pecan pie was truly gorgeous. The staff are all lovely, very professional, courtious and really welcoming and friendly. I highly recommend this boutique hotel.

Room Tip: Junior Suites overlooking the courtyward are fantastic.

I stayed at the Relais back in April while visiting Paris with family. Very cute boutique hotel, very good service, they fixed right away a problem with the in-room safe, and left us some wonderful chocolates during our stay there. The front desk was extremely helpful, with many items, and the room I shared with my nephew was small but nice. The shower took time getting used to, curtain enclosure, but all was good. The location cannot be beat, right near many museums and sights (Louvre, Notre Dame, Tuilleries) plus right near Odeon Metro stop, very convenient. All in all - a great little place to stay. WiFi worked well, might have wished faster connection but was able to do as needed.
