“Elegant stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

What a wonderful and elegant stay we had in the mid of April with my boyfriend! Saint James is the place to be! We were on 2nd floor and our room was quite large for us and always very very very clean!!! We loved the restaurant of the hotel. If we didn't want to try a lot of things in Paris we surely would stay and eat only in their restaurant. Also the place is very close to the metro station which is a big plus! Totally recommended.

Our stay at The Saint James Paris was magical. Everything was superb, the staff are a credit to themselves and the hotel, being polite and attentive at all times and always striving to make the guest experience a special one. Our stay was to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and it was a wonderful way to celebrate this very special occasion. The restaurant serves the most delicious food. The taster menu was excellent and we would suggest this choice as a must have especially with the wine selection.

The hotel is like a mini chateaux in the centre of Paris, truly magical, but only about 10 minutes walk from the Arc de Triomphe and very easy for the metro. If you are feeling energetic you can walk to most of the tourist attractions..

If we visit Paris again we will definitely stay at the Saint James and can thoroughly recommend it.

We headed over to Paris for an overnight visit as were having dinner with some friends who live in the 15th. We wanted something a bit special with secure parking.

We were upgraded to a Junior Suite which was fantastic, gorgeous, stunning! I love interior design and was actually quite speechless for once. I was skipping around the room at one point!

As many have already pointed out the location was a 15 minute stroll from the Eiffel Tower which was perfect for us as we were only there overnight and weren’t on some crazy tourist trip. Perfect location if you drive over as you quite literally turn off the motorway into town, 10 mins in and you’re there. A very quiet affluent area.

It was probably the best night’s (hotel) sleep I’ve had in a long time in the biggest bed I’ve ever slept in although it was the attention to detail in the décor that quite astounded me.

If I’m going to be really picky I would have expected the concierge to be a bit quicker of the mark in coming down the steps to meet us. We were out of the car and taking our overnight bag in before anyone acknowledged we’d arrived (with the sound of our car’s exhaust you’d hear us a mile away).

We also had lunch in the Library bar however the service was quite slow. They brought us coffee when we’d ordered champagne and we waited 30 mins for our croque monsieur (I’d drunk my champagne by the time the food came).

Booked through Mr and Mrs Smith we had 2 x complimentary cocktails vouchers which was a nice touch.

Don’t ever like to go back to the same place twice but this would be worth it for a special romantic stay.

The St.James was an obvious choice for a romantic honeymoon getaway for a couple of nights. The location is not quite central but still close to a lovely park and the Eiffel tower and easy enough for the metro.

The whole of the hotel has been finished to a marvelous standard, very opulent and chic without being ostentatious or pretentious - a difficult balance. The central staircase is simply amazing.

We stayed in the Pavillion D'Amour after a generous upgrade from a junior suite. It was one of the gatehouses to the property and was on 3 floors with a spa in the basement (with a steam room and the largest bath I've seen - even had a remote control). Everything else in the room was fantastic, period furniture, tasteful fabrics and silk wallpaper with a great bed.

My only grumbles were perhaps little things but when you are paying over £800 a night for a room, you might expect not to worry about? Room service was s l o w, sometimes I had to ring 3 times and wait half-an-hour to get a response, dirty plates and glasses were not cleared out of the room after room service had been in (and then not replaced when they were), the ironing board (when it did arrive) was older than the hotel (and then left for the duration of our stay despite being asked twice to have it removed). There were other things but I don't want to spoil the review - perhaps they were short staffed that weekend?

Definitely a place to go in Paris and I think it was popular judging by the hardware parked outside. Lovely ambiance and grounds - but be prepared to pay and wait a little time for room service!

Iv'e stayed in Hotels all over the world and I always try to find something that is unique with great amenities and service. This Hotel just rose to the top of my list and is my favorite thus far.The location is in perfect walking distance to Eiffel Tower and Champs Elysee. It is decorated very traditional but whimsical and at the same time invokes the energy of a childrens party.You feel as though you are visiting a family member because of the coziness and warmth of the decor.The food, service and staff help was impeccable! I couldn't wait to get back to the Hotel at the end of the day, and here I am in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.This Hotel is a real treat and everyone should experience a Hotel like this one.

Room Tip: Staff will do it for you, they are amazing!

We stayed 3 nights at the chateau. Its truly unique, beautiful and the staff is very helpful and pleasant. The location is very close to the Port Dauphine metro and a 20 min walk to the Eiffel Tower.

The library bar, the decor and the elegance makes you feel at home in 1920s Paris with all the modern day conveniences.
