Maison St Germain is a charming and unique property, hybrid of an apartment and a hotel. If you are looking for something a little more authentic and don’t need some amenities of a hotel like restaurant and a health club, this is a great option.
Firstly, you cant beat the location. It as a nice walk to many of the sites. The neighborhood has a nice mix of bars and restaurants that locals go too as well. There is a grocery store and a great Patisserie(Paul) right down the street. There is also a subway station right across the street.
We had the top floor two bedroom unit which, had two balconies overlooking St. Germain and a kitchen. The décor was somewhat traditional. My only negative is that a couple of chairs needed their cushions replaced.
There is an office that has staff from 8 am to 8 pm I believe. They were very helpful when we needed a little assistance and spoke English exceptionally well. They happily called restaurants or tour companies and also provided local suggestions for food etc. One staff member (M), was one of the nicest and most genuinely helpful hospitality staff I have ever encountered in all of my travels.
There are a few quirks. The elevator is very small like many old buildings in Europe. We could barely put two people and our luggage in the elevator. Another small annoyance, despite the hefty room rates, they don’t do dishes of any kind. I realize that this is more of an apartment rental than hotel but at 500 Euro a night, I would expect the housekeeping staff to tend to a few plates in the sink.
I would happily stay here again and have already recommended it to a few people I know heading to Paris.
