This small oasis in Paris is just as advertised here. I had done a lot of research on the hotel before I left and it was worth the effort because I ended up booking the St. Jacques hotel and could not have been happier. We had two rooms, one twin larger room and one standard double. Both were very attractive with walk out windows, beautiful molding on ceiling and very charming decor. Keep in mind this is a small two star hotel and a very old building and therefore you may have some minor inconveniences. The room did not have a plug available for any curling iron (I brought a duel voltage one) or any other electrical appliance in the bathroom other than a small shaver- in either room. This was a problem because I have to curl my hair. I ended up unplugging the TV every time I curled my hair and did not have a mirror close. Also, you may have some noise due to thin walls and some slight street noise, although this is reduced at night. There is no air conditioning and in summer I may consider a different hotel. But, for fall the minor were worth it given the great value, location and charm of the hotel. The hotel staff were great. I will have to give kudos especially to Bridget at the front desk. She was very helpful in several situations. One being a major problem on our return in which we learned a huge lesson. When the transfer service bluvan picked us up they left my most important bag with passport, ids, money sitting on the curb outside the hotel. Although it was mostly due to the driver missing the bag, I will always watch to make sure my bags are loaded before getting on a transportation service from now on. Bridgett quickly had my bad put on a taxi and tied it shut for me. This was a very stressful situation and she was very helpful. I had the hotel breakfast and it was convenient, but I found a croissant and coffee at the boulangerie at the corner cheaper for me since I did not need much for breakfast. The rooms have CNN in english. The maid service was good except for once letting us totally run out of soap- no big deal. The location was perfect in the charming Latin Quarter and one block from the metro, although the major metro with many connections is about three blocks at the St. Michel/Notre Dame stop. We used both. Restaurants are everywhere and I would recommend the Petit Prince around the corner from the hotel as well as the Peridaund's which is on Rue St. Jacques. Also, we had so much fun at night in the club district around Rue de la Huchette, especially the historic jazz club, Le Caveau de la Huchette. I can't wait to return and I would love to stay at Hotel St. Jacque again!
