My husband and I have stayed here on three different trips to Paris, the most recent being in September, 2019. The location of this hotel is wonderful, within an easy walk to so many places in Paris. The rooms are charming and the bathrooms are up-to-date. The front desk is very helpful and made a number of hard to get restaurant reservations for us. If you want Parisian charm in a wonderful location, this is a great place to stay. We hope to be back as soon as the government allows us back one the virus is contained.
Pro : hotel location Cons : room looks dated, not very helpful front desk staff and quite a rude hotel manager. I accidentally left personal items in the room. When asking help from the hotel manager to retrieve these, he claimed i was lying.
This is a delightful hotel in central Paris, full of elegant charm and serene character. I stayed here for one night in mid June as a stop over between Barcelona and The Hague (train from Barcelona to Paris and then to the Hague via Brussels Midi the next day), mainly to catch up with a friend who lives locally (just across the road). With its rich bright tapestries, renaissance art works (paintings, vases and sculpture), Louis XVI and Regency furnishings and individually designed rooms, I felt as if I was staying in a small palace, an exquisitely regal find in central Paris. My room was charming with its exposed timber ceiling beams, it provided a medieval ambience combined with the comforts of contemporary living - a fine double bed, high pressure shower and air conditioning (which was needed given that there was a heat wave in Paris at the time of my overnight stay). The staff were wonderful, particularly Carlos on reception and his welcoming and professional colleagues in the dining room who provided the most delicious breakfast. I could have stayed there all morning. I had a problem with a potential double charge on my credit card the next day due to withdrawing my AMEX too quickly from the merchant terminal. Carlos was so kind and emailed immediately after I checked out to reassure me that there had been no double charge and only one transaction had been posted. It is that level of service that would make me return and stay again. The hotel is on the slightly expensive side, but Paris is costly. I suppose I noticed this because I was travelling all over Europe using the same Euro currency and noticed major variations in hotel and accomodation costs between countries, but I still feel as if this hotel represents good value. I definitely recommend Hotel Saint Germain des Pres, and would have been happy to stay for much longer than one night - two or three weeks would be ideal!…
Stayed for 3 nights, Room space is alright, lift so tiny Great location but the surprise was the staff , couldn’t believe how professional and helpful special thanks to Johnny the chef, Theo and Eric and the rest of the team .
The hotel Saint Germain des Prés is authentic and is situated in a surprisingly quiet neighborhood close to the Seine and the Île de Cité. The rooms have the original features like old tapestry, headboard and taps but don’t miss out on modern amenities like flat screen tv and water cooker with tea and coffee. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not included but well worth the 12 €. We can highly recommend this hotel and would love stay there again.
