This is a great area for cafés and bars - it has a trendy vibe. It is pretty central for tourist attractions and travel links. Hotels are pretty good value for money if you want to stay in a part of town that has a variety of eateries and shops that isn't too busy. Also there is some great architecture if you look up while you wander around.

“Superb Area”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

A great area near many of the spots you will want to visit. The restaurants/cafés are numerous and outstanding. It is a very trendy area with good shopping and you feel safe. We stayed in the Tulleries area but walked to St Germain a few times and really enjoyed it. We'll stay here he next time we come to France.

“A Golden Journey”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

We walked from the Cafe de Flore (which is also near Les Deux Magots) on Bd Saint-Germain to Le Bon Marche and then to La Grande Epicene de Paris for shopping. We also stopped along the way. From there we walked down Bd Raspail to Fromagerie Barthelemy on Rue de Grenelle and to lunch at Le St. Germaine. We then walked back on Bd Saint-Germain towards our starting point stopping again along the way. Lots of walking, but lots of shops.

“Great Base Location”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Before we went here, which was for the first time, I struggled to figure out best part of Paris to stay in. We wanted to be near cafe's and restaurants, as well as tourist attractions, Metro, etc.. We also wanted to feel safe and comfortable. I choose well. While I'm sure other sections would have been fine and probably cheaper, this really fit the bill. It was a great place to stay. The area is just beautiful and it gives first timers the true Parisian experience. Can't wait to get back there.
