It was our first trip to Paris. And the hotel is well-suited for this purpose. Convenient raspolozhnie in the historic center of the city, helpful staff and clean, albeit small, rooms with good sound insulation. We took breakfast at the hotel and they did not disappoint, were quite tasty. Of the minuses except occasional problems with wi-fi and repair of elevators, which lasted 3 days.

We arrived early at the hotel and Pierre told us that we were very 'lucky' as our room had be refreshed and was ready for us. And so began the theme of our lucky stay and experiences in Paris over the three days that we stayed there.
From resturant & bar reservations (Pierre made them for us) to the people that we met and the things that we did.
Everything just clicked into place. I fell in love with paris all over again.
As for the room, it was a little difficult to navigate around the beds as the room was quite small but we knew what to expect and adapted quite easily.
The room was clean and tastefully decorated. Very Parisian chic...
The bathroom was clean and everything worked and was just what we needed. However for getting ready for an evening out....the lighting wasn't the best when applying make -up - but this is just minor compared how much we loved the hotel. I am very picky about where I stay and this hotel ticked all the boxes.
The breakfast was fab. I esp loved the place mats and the crockery. All very classy. Great way to start the day. The neighbourhood is cool. Quaint bars, resturants. We felt completely safe and everything was convenient.
And of course..I could not write a review without mentioning the fabulous Pierre. As all the reviewers have mentioned..his service was outstanding and he is well deserved of all the praise that he gets as he does work hard to make sure your stay is comfortable..and lucky ; )
Thank-you Hotel Saint Germain. I will be back.

I visited Paris with my 14-year-old daughter in late July, and we loved staying at Hotel Saint Germain. The location is ideal -- we walked to the Seine and the Louvre from there, as well as , to Musee D'Orsay, and the Eiffel Tower ... and one day took a longer walk along Champs Elysees to the Arc de Triomphe. For longer trips, the Rue du Bac subway stop was five minutes away. About three mornings while we were there, I went for a run first thing in the gardens adjoining the Louvre. Our room was very clean, comfortable and charming; it was nice to be able to open our window. Continental breakfasts were very good -- maybe a bit more cheese and pastries than I would like, mostly because I can't control myself around that type of food -- but you could just have yogurt and fruit if you wanted. The staff at the hotel were very pleasant and accommodating. A bit of noise from hall was only downside -- we sometimes thought someone was knocking on our door, but it was the door beside ours. It was convenient having free Wi-Fi -- something we did not have later in our hotel in London. Room was a bit small, but we didn't mind at all; the charm of the hotel overall made up for that. Staying in this hotel added immeasurably to our enjoyment of our Paris visit -- thank you to the staff for a great visit. We hope to be back someday.

Room Tip: We had a room on the third floor on the street side of the hotel. We were not bothered by street noi...

My family and I just returned from a trip to Paris. This jewel of a hotel was perfect for us. The staff was kind and friendly - Wanda and Pierre helped our kids practice their French. They were also always attentive to what we needed. The rooms were actually bigger than I was expecting. Nice bathrooms with tubs and showers. Super comfortable beds...we slept well every night. One of our rooms looked out over the quaint inner courtyard. Breakfast was tasty - pastries, yoghurt, cereal for the kids, and fresh fruit salad. I also liked the location - about 6 blocks from the Louvre, one block from the metro, and one block from the Blvd St Germain which had nice shops and restaurants. We felt like we were close to many things but not in the middle of a busy or touristy part of town. Overall, we were so pleased with our stay.

Room Tip: The rooms that look over the courtyard are quieter.

I did my research for hours trying to find the perfect hotel for our stay in Paris. I was looking for a safe and accessible neighborhood with a comfortable bed and updated bathroom. This hotel was perfect, and it exceeded all of my needs.

We flew into Paris mid day Wednesday, Pierre was working the desk (younger associate in his late twenties, if I had to guess). He was GREAT! Air France lost our luggage and the staff, especially Pierre was extremely helpful! They provided us with an outlet converter, called to check on our luggage numerous times, helped us with directions, they made a call to our next hotel in Champagne to check on some things for us and they were very friendly throughout our stay.

I would return to this hotel in a heartbeat. The bed was comfortable, the street was quiet, the staff gets to know you since there are only 40 or so rooms. The neighborhood has plenty of shops and cafes, this boutique hotel was a perfect and affordable choice. If I had to sum it up I would classify it as Parisian chic! Oh, and how can I forget the chocolate brioche was AMAZING at breakfast! Breakfast was served from 7-10 and consisted of fresh pastries, a wide selection of specialty tea, Nespresso, juice, yogurt, cereal, granola, and cheese.

We were able to easily visit: the Eiffel tower via subway, Notra Dame Cathedral via water taxi, Locks of Love bridge, the Latin Quarter (walked back to the hotel), the Musee d'Orsay (via subway), we also rented a car and went out to Epernay, Champagne. Since we were there late August we did run across a few shops and restaurants that were closed. Be sure to call ahead and make a reservation or check on hours of operation if you are visiting Paris in August.
The subway workers were even helpful. For 6 Euros we were able to purchase an all day subway pass and for 11 Euros we purchased a 24 hour water taxi pass.

Cons
The elevator was very small and a bit noisy (we could hear it in our room)
They didn't provide conditioner only shampoo
No bottled water in the room
No emergency supplies (I am used to staying at chain hotels, if you forget toiletries the front desk usually has a small stock of sample sized necessities. We had to purchase toothpaste and the pharmacies close by were a bit expensive. 5 Euros for a small tube of toothpaste is crazy.)

We spent a week here recently. It was close to the Metro and within walking distance of other sites. Pierre and Lawrence were amazing, resolving issue with pickup at the airport (who never turned up) in a flash. The night staff were also very informative, we spent a lot of nights chatting to them when we would come in. We would highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Our room was number 40 on the 4th Floor, very quiet.
