I recently stayed the weekend here. The staff were excellent. Both in terms of helping us within the hotel and their recommendations. Our room was, one might say, bijou! However there was a large and comfortable bed, and bed linen. Wonderful strong shower. There was a slight downside with a room that small was that the lavatory opened directly into the bedroom (rather than through the bathroom, for instance) which means that any noise, (if any were to be made), carries through the door. One should perhaps time ones ablutions accordingly. And to be honest the gold Ostrich leatherette wallpaper certainly made up for it.
Adjacent to the hotel is a building being restored. There wasn't any work being carried out at the weekend. But it appears this is going to take some time as the progress looks slow.
One thing to note about this area is that most of the shops are closed on Sunday. We also struggled to find somewhere nearby to have breakfast / brunch on the Sunday. The breakfast in the hotel is expensive. Twenty euros for a coffee, a juice and toast (room service prices). We didn't actually have it so it might be well worth it! In the end we were lucky to get a table at Les Garcons on the same street. This was an excellent brunch and I would recommend it; a coffee, juice, croissant, eggs benedict and dessert for twenty five euro. I think booking is required for a Sunday. We were just lucky.
Overall a wonderful little hotel, with charming staff and great location.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- La Belle Juliette. The discreet luxury of a four-star hotel and the charm of an address that visitors and Parisians will give to their most demanding, cultured friends. In the pure Parisian tradition of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, the hotel is guided by a modern vision of romanticism and urban conviviality. Exceptional service with particular attention to hospitality, guests' well-being, calm and tranquility... All in the heart of bustling Saint Germain. Corinne and Pascal Moncelli, the owners of the hotel, have decided to breathe new life into an establishment that had been left to abandon on the rue du Cherche-Midi by telling the story - or rather stories - of a famous historical personality. This star of her time lived in the 19th century, frequented all the intellectuals and politicians of the era, was blessed with exceptional beauty, had an extraordinary love life and - above all - excelled in the art of receiving. The popular literary salon that she organised from the tender age of 15 attracted the greatest minds of the time and continued until her death, age 72! It is Juliette Recamier - famously known as La Belle Juliette - who gives her name to this new hotel. ... more less
