“Great hotel, in great part of Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Very helpful and friendly staff, in a great location. Five minute walk to Notre Dame and surrounded by great cafes, bars, and shops. Excellent in every respect. They even have bikes to lend you to get around the city more easily.

There are many less expensive places to choose from, but none will match the pampering you get from the staff at Relais Christine. They were the best. If service does not get you, location will. This is the perfect location from which to explore all the best that Paris offers - museums, restaurants, notable sites, and shops. The rooms are clean and we loved the romantic decor. This hotel is not for everyone, nor does it pretend to be. Service is equivalent to other 5 star places we have stayed in, minus the snootiness. Absolutely loved Relais Christine and wish we could have had a longer stay. Until next time.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a larger room. We loved the extra space as well as the feeling of being in our own apartm...

I just spent 2 weeks in Paris for work -- lots of client dinners, late nights in beautiful Parisian neighborhoods. I knew of the Relais Christine and had tried to get into the hotel on previous stays -- but it's hard to get a room if you are not really planning ahead. This time I got lucky and was there for two weeks. The hotel is tucked into the left bank (fabulous area full of wonderful restaurants, small boutiques and small art galleries), 2 blocks from the Seinne (Notre Dame visible as soon as you reach the river). The Louve and Tuilleries garden is right across the river -- the perfect morning walk.

Inside the hotel you find a perfect, tucked away gem. Beautifully maintained, elegant but not overdone. A wonderful sitting area with an honor bar, where the fire goes late into the night when it's cold outside. They have wonderful soups and are associated with the adorable restaurant next door (very creative french food).

This is where I will always try to stay from now on and where I hope to bring my husband on a non-working vacation soon. I highly recommend. Also, check out Le Coup Chou -- the most romantic, delicious, local hideaway restaurant also on the left bank.

Have a wonderful trip.

Room Tip: No pool and rooms are small but beautifully maintained and full of French character -- it's Pari...

Dear madam,

It was a pleasure to welcome you for two weeks at Le Relais Christine, knowing that there is no better reward to us than reading that your long stay was really enjoyable.
It is of capital importance to us to know that you felt home away from home, and enjoyed at best the area and our amenities.
We all thank you very much for detailing on Tripadvisor your experience and look forward to welcoming you and your husband very soon again, so that you can discover another of our accommodations!

I stayed at the Relais Christine for business from Jan 17th – Jan 22nd.

On the plus side:

1) The staff is courteous, helpful and efficient
2) I had two small problems with my room (TV and the Safe) that were corrected quickly.
3) The rooms were extremely clean and well kept. The queen bed was large and comfortable
4) The rooms were large by European Standards. . If travelling with children you could fit a cot in the room although I’m not sure if Cot’s are available.
5) The bathroom was beautiful. large and included a Hot Towel Rack, Large Shower with plenty of hot water, a bath tub that might have been a Jacuzzi (didn’t look that closely), 2 pairs of slippers, 2 very nice bathrobes and a powerful hair dryer.
6) The lobby was well appointed, comfortable and was easily used for business meetings.
7) The location is ideal for sightseeing as it is just about in the middle of Paris.
8) There were plenty of restaurants/shopping in the area. Sort of like the Village in Manhattan only nicer.
9) The breakfast in the hotel dining room consisted of eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, fruit and pastries.
10) The RER and several subway lines are close by.
11) When my Return Flight was cancelled I had no problem staying an extra day.
12) The free Wi-Fi was nice.

On the negative side

1) The walls are thin and noise (but not voices) traveled very easily from the adjacent rooms. Voices did travel from the courtyard which is the hotel entrance.
2) Several times a night the front door to my room rattled. I believe this happened when the wind was strong and the main hotel doors were opened. To solve this problem I stuck a small wash cloth under my door to keep it from moving.
3) I believe the above 2 problems were limited to courtyard rooms which is where I stayed. Try and get a room on the upper floors.
4) Like everything else in Paris the Breakfast was overpriced.
5) The Business Center had a PC but I did not see a Printer.
6) Intermittently I lost Cell Service/Internet on my Smart Phone. But this happened all over Paris.

Ignore the smattering of less then stellar reviews, and stay at this lovely, homey feeling boutique hotel! I will definitely stay here upon any return trips to Paris.
The location is great -- right in the middle of the 6th, just across from the Ile de la Cite, a short walk to the Louvre, Notre Dame, art galleries, and great restaurants. Our room was terrific, if only a little "tired," meaning it could have used a new coat of paint, or some touch ups, and this is why I'm going with a 4 star rating as opposed to a 5 star. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A wonderful hotel.

Everything thing one would expect from a small luxury hotel in Paris. It's expensive but quite lovely. The rooms are not large....we paid to upgrade from a superior room which was, we thought, tiny. A lovely bathroom - but plumbing that was very French! I should think the whole hotel knew when we ran a bath! All the staff that we met we helpful and friendly. The concierge desk in particular. Being in a little street it's wonderfully quiet. When I am lucky enough to go back to Paris, I very much hope to stay there again.
