Hotel St Jacques is perfectly positioned in the Latin Quarter. A brief 5-10 minute walk to Notre Dame, at the base of the hill from the Pantheon (from a side view) with lots of fabulous bars, restaurants and shops only a stones throw away if you wander the beautiful cobbled streets. I booked directly through the hotel website for a triple room and I requested a view of the Pantheon & Notre Dame's towers (as seen on one of these other reviews!) and this was exactly what we got - superb! I think the rooms on the top floor have a mini balcony but we were quite happy just to pop our heads out of the window and look left and right!
The room was of an adequate size for the three of us and all our luggage with space to move around. The bathroom was small but the shower more than made up for that as it was incredibly powerful and just what you need to wake you up in the mornings. I can't comment on what the breakfasts were like as we always chose to go to a cafe or boulangerie which I would highly recommend (plenty in the immediate area) as it means you can sit, watch the world go by and enjoy your typical french breakfast!
The hotel is full of character with wonderful wall paintings and a sweeping spiral staircase which we always took down as the lift is VERY small (possibly fits four at a real squash!). I will certainly book to stay here the next time I am in Paris as this hotel really is a little gem - the price really is astounding for the location, views and comfort!
