“Our little piece of Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2006

My wife and I spent three wonderful days in Paris staying at Hotel St Jaques.

The location was ideal. From our tiny balcony we could look left to the Pantheon and to the right to Notre Dam. With the Metro close by it was easy to find our way around this wonderful city.

The staff were excellent. From the moment we arrived we were made feel special - always a welcoming smile.

With such an exciting and vibrant area of Paris at your doorstep, there couldn't be many better positions than around Hotel St Jaques.

We will long remember our short stay in Paris.

The setting for the Audrey Hepburn movie "Charade", this hotel had lots of charm and character. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and although our triple room was small, it had a separate bedroom for our 3rd guest which was a lovely surprise. The location was great - an easy 10 minute walk to the Metro, Notre Dame and many caffe's and restaurants to choose from. I would definately return to this hotel when next in beautiful Paris.

We stayed at Hotel St. Jacques for our honeymoon from Sept. 19 - 25th and we were very pleased. Our room was 124 Euro a night and had one main room, a bathroom, and then a smaller bedroom on the other side of the bathroom. We were able to store all of our luggage in there so our sleeping area wasn't a mess. Our room was always clean and made up when we returned back from sightseeing. The water was always hot and the noise level was not bad at all. The first night was the loudest, but we just shut the windows and popped in some ear plugs. It's in a great location - 4 or 5 minute walk from the metro and about a 7 minute walk from Notre Dame. Great little restaraunt next the hotel - I can't remember the name off hand - Petit P - something :-) - best meal we had in Paris! The hotel staff was always friendly and willing to help which we were very appreciative of since our French is not good at all. I would def. stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

  • Liked — Location
  • Disliked — Everything is really small, it was hard to fit two people and two suitcases in the elevator. But we were okay with it since it's a quintisential French hotel.

The Hotel St Jacques enjoys a wonderful location, situated a mere 5 min walk form the Metro and within walking distance of Notre Dame, the Pantheon and the Jardins De Luxembourg. The area is very safe and quiet and the rooms were of a good size, as was the en-suite bathroom. The highlight of our stay was the view from our top floor room, we could see both Notre Dame and the Sacre Coeur from our bathroom window! The only grumble I had is the poor sound proofing as we were able to hear every word of our neighbour's conversation and the noise from their TV was very intrusive...

I would definitely return to this hotel. Some of the perks include:

- location. At the heart of the Quartier Latin, St Jacques is walking distance from the Notre Dame cathedral and many restaurants. The street is very safe and near a métro and RER stop (direct trains to/from CDG airport)
- service. The staff were very hands-off and discrete, but polite and helpful when consulted
- facilities. The hotel has a room for left luggage (checkout is at midday). There is someone at reception throughout the night which allows you to return as late as you like.
- rooms. Although slightly on the small side, our room had an en suite bathroom and balcony with views of Notre Dame and the Panthéon. The room was very clean, and I believe each room has a different theme, all with 19th century features.

Overall it was a very successful stay, however we did not eat any meals at the hotel so I cannot comment on the food!

I would definitely recommend it and stay there again in future.

My daughter and I spent four wonderful days in Paris, and used the Saint Jacques as our base. It's location was perfect. Very close to the metro station, we found it quiet (2nd week of July), and the staff were like family.
The room was amazing, with art work on the walls, a long patio over looking the street below, and a very comfortable bed, (perfect after walking miles during the hot summer days)
I would recomend the place to friends , family, anyone wishing to injoy Paris with some style and flair, and not break the bank.

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!

  • Liked — location, price and cleanliness
  • Disliked — The lift was really very small
  • Tips/Secrets — Request a room with a view of the Pantheon & Notre Dame's towers as they are so beautiful
