“C'est magnifique!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

This was a first visit to Paris for my husband and me. The trip was wonderful and long awaited but the Relais Christine is beyond compare on every level. The tucked away (yet perfectly convenient) location, the impeccable and tasteful charm and the outstanding service. Everyone at this beautiful boutique hotel treated us with such welcoming kindness. Every evening we wished a wonderful time upon leaving for dinner and always welcomed back with the warmest smile. Our room (40) was perfection. It was quite large for a European hotel room. I will advise the ladies to perhaps bring some sort of lit mirror or a mirror that you can carry out of the bathroom into the bedroom for applying make-up. The bathroom lighting is no conducive to applying well blended make-up. The shower with a rain head and separate bathtub with warming bar for the towels, his/her bathrobes and French toiletries more than made up for the little extra time the mascara took to apply. Oh and I must mention the breakfast. Glorious! The setting, the yogurt - it's Dannon but it's not - it's Danone. Honestly, delicious! Please book this hotel with the greatest confidence. Bon Voyage!

Room Tip: Several people in our travel party asked to see other rooms. Some are quite small (to be expected...

Our trip was for leisure, and we planned for only 2 daily adventures, and Relais Christine was the perfect home base. The Latin Quarter area is full with great restaurants and easy access to many of the more famous sights. We took a loft room which was comfortable and well kept. Nice bath and shower in the cramped, but very comfy bathroom.

Service was A++, with a nice breakfast spread in a serve yourself setting.

Get to breakfast early for the most variety. Enjoy the honor bar in the sitting room and meet some of your fellow travelers. Good shopping right nearby and great local food as well.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The loft room is warm in the top sleeping area, be aware in summer months. The earlier you get to br...

My wife and I recently spent three days at this hotel. I have experience with at least ten Paris hotels over the years ranging from the the very well known to much lesser establishments. This is the one I would go back to without question. We arrived long before check-in but were in our room in 20 minutes, no problem, no charge. Our room was not large but that is Paris. But the room was very pleasing, quiet though right on the street level, comfortable and clean. The staff was consistently helpful, knowledgeable and polite. The location is excellent for those who like to walk and Paris is the "Walking City" non pareil. Close to the river, numerous good restaurants close by including a Jaques Cagna establishment across the street and within a 10 minute stroll of Notre Dame in one direction and the Quai D'Orsay in the other. We are already planning our next stay.

Room Tip: If you can spend a bit more, ask for one of the rooms on the garden.

This is a lovely little hotel in a quiet area in central Paris. I have no complaints about this hotel. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive and every room is decorated differently in their own beautiful way. Would stay here again!

Perfectly located in the middle of Quartier Latin, in a little and very quiet side street, this hotel is a perfect hideaway. It is a real dream of a hotel, perfect service, extremely friendly staff, nicely decorated. Breakfast room and spa/wellness are cosily located in the basement, the bar/lounge make you feel like staying in your own living room. Definitely deserves the top ranking among Paris hotels

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...
