This quartier in the 6º arrondissement is the place to be! With its countless cafés, brasseries, boulangeries/pâtisseries and boutiques, there are so many wonderful options. The ambiance is upbeat and fun. It is also close to so many historical buildings.

Beautiful neighbourhood with old buildings, fancy shops and boutique hotels. Exactly how I imagined a french inner city living- cool! Lined by cool cafés, boulangeries and ice cream parlours, you miss time passing. Busy but not crowded nor did it feel touristy. Coming from Venice,...More

We loved this part of Paris. From the shops on the boulevard St. Germain, to the market and the churches, St. Germain and St. Sulpice, and its cafes, St. Germain des Pres is the most charming part of Paris.

Wonderful restaurants, interesting history/ buildings, good shops, nice Frenchmen...just love this place. Even if there are many tourists e.g. at Cafe de Flore it doesn't disturb at all - athmosphere is just incredible. If I would move again to Paris I would choose this place...More

Loved to walk in the area at night. although the area near the Seine was packed, it was fun to walk about and feel the atmosphere. Loved it during the day also.

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented

Hi I love the reviews on this area of Paris and definitely want to stay here. Can anyone recommend any hotels to stay in reasonably priced? Also we really want to be within walking distance of nice bars and restaurants at night, where exactly would be good to find a hotel? Thanks
