“Unique settlement in the heart of Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Saint James Paris is our favourite 5 star experience when traveling by car. Not only the superb balanled quality of the hospitality, rooms, service and restaurant makes Saint James a must to do when vistiting Paris but also it's unique location in the heart of the city but with the privacy and quiteness of the countryside.

Dear Guests,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this great review that will without a doubt encourage TripAdvisor readers to visit our little chateau!
We are especially grateful of your mentioning our rooms, restaurant and services. It is also true that by car, the Saint James Paris is easily accessible and that the complimentary parking in our closed courtyard is quite a unique asset in Paris.
Returning guests like you contribute greatly to the homey feeling we do our best to provide and we all look forward to serving you again soon.

Yours sincerely,
Yves Monnin, General Manager

we arrived in Paris after 5 days in London on a 2 city trip celebrating our 40th anniversary.
we selected the St james Paris based on Trip Advisor rating and comments. They did not disapppoint at all.
From the moment we arrived and drove through the beautiful entrance to the courtyard til we got up to our room we were in awe of the beauty of this hotel. We were told they just made a major renovation and it was magnificent.
our room was upgraded and we overlooked the courtyard. we had a corner room so there were 3 sets of large terrace doors that we could open and view the area. It was also great sleeping with the doors open for fresh air as the weather we on the cooler side (morning noises were a bit loud as it is in the city but not so bad).
The room was large and had all we needed. the amenities including the nightly turn down service were as good as it gets. The WiFi was also working well.
The location of the hotel was good. we were 10 minutes from the Arch De Triomphe, 15 minutes from the Eiffel Tower and 15 minutes from Champs de Elysees. There were many cafe's within a 10 minute walking distance as well as the Metro and the RER.
The staff was great. Christian, the head concierge, and his staff were very helpful in recommending tours (that we set up some in advance) and how best to get around the city for us first timers.
The restaruant was very nice as was room service. Everyone in the hotel went out of their way to make your stay feel special.
The key to the room is magnificent. I could only imagine people stealing them due to how unique they are. But I doubt anyone leaves without dropping it at the front desk. I was going to buy mine but at 80 Euro's it was easier to take a picture.
we highly recommend the St James Paris to anyone who likes a hotel that makes you feel special when you stay and where the staff knows you by name.

Room Tip: I like the front facing room as you can see a few streets from the windows

my stay with you WAS SPECTACULAR!

Your concierge's and all staff were exceptional! Florence was delightful and I was treated with such courtesy.

I consider your hotel my favourite and look forward to a return visit!

It all started with emails between myself and Maxime, where all my questions were answered and things were arranged for me.

When I arrived I was made to feel welcome. The room was well appointed and lovely. The bathroom was an oasis. Reflexology treatment was very nice. The bar and dining room were luxurious and quality of food and presentation were awesome.


Pilou I think was my most unexpected joy and delight! Being an avid animal lover I was thrilled to see the cat wander through the hotel!

Thank you to all who made my stay the most delightful experience!!!!

Room Tip: talk to the staff and have them arrange your stay.... stress free and lovely!

We stayed here for 3 nights will attending Roland Garros June 2013. The property is in a very nice neighborhood and has an "estate in the city" feel. The St James is a beautiful property and the service level is among the best hotels I have been too, anywhere.

The location is in easy walking distance to the main sites and the Metro stop is right there.

Food is good and the Concierges are among the best in Paris. The Spa is small but nice.

We were upgraded to one of the top floor suites, while nice, frankly I think a deluxe room with a view of the fountain is more charming... be aware of this.

This will likely be my only address in Paris.

What a beautiful wonderful hotel. The service and staff were impeccable. Our deluxe room was very nice and spacious. We had a delicious dinner in their restaurant. We also found a restaurant called Le Petit Retro on rue Mesnil near place Victor Hugo which is a foodies delight (gourmet food, superb ingredients at a resonable price). We can't wait to return to Hotel St-James.

We had a wonderful stay at Saint James.

Staying in a beautiful, restful place enhanced our much too brief
visit to Paris. We were surprised how quiet and restful our room was.
Great location.

I would describe your hotel as chic and a bit quirky yet beautifully
balanced and comfortable. Immaculately clean with high quality bedding.

Breakfast each morning... truly a special treat. Your morning staff
are second to none. We enjoyed walking to Stella's for dinner both
evenings (fabulous dining) and then returning home welcomed by your
friendly service staff.

When we come to Paris again we look forward to staying with you once
more. Thank you.

Room Tip: Our room had both a deep bathtub and a large walk-in shower. The one draw back was the toilet was i...

Simply SUPERB! My husband and I travel extensively for work and leisure and frequent 5 and 4* hotels around the world. Bottom line - Saint James Paris is THE best hotel in Paris and beyond. We were upgraded to a Jr Suite with a nice bottle of wine and a personalized note. More importantly, the staff were all sheer perfection - incredibly warm, welcoming and extremely diligent and customer oriented . . . despite our naughty dog ;)

Based on our experience, will be bringing my entire family back in a couple of weeks. Many thanks to the entire staff at Saint James Paris! Much appreciate your hospitality and looking forward to seeing you again.
