“Great place to stay in Paris”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

I stayed here for a 2 nights break in December. It's really great place to stay - location is just perfect, it's small boutique hotel, historical place in great shape and charm. And what's the best here is the staff. The service is just perfect and all staff members we met were smiling, welcoming and nothing was a trouble. I can only highly recommend this place if you are looking for something special and want to raise your Paris experience!

I have just spent 10 days in early December in this lovely, beautiful, quiet , reserved and very well managed hotel just a few blocks from the best of Paris. It was not my first time there and I can positively afirm that they are getting better and better. You cannot find a more friendly and helpful staff anywhere in Paris. I loved my stay there.

Location, location... a helpful staff, excellent breakfast and did I mention the location.
Our room was a garden suite which was pleasant yet had an odd layout as the toilet was through the parlor area. The common area was comfortable and the out door courtyard was appealing.
Will stay again when in Paris.

Our first impression of the hotel when walking through the beautifully lined courtyard with the lights and the scent of the fresh Christmas trees was an absolute delight. When viewing the pictures of the hotel, one looks at the quaint courtyard which is so quintessentially Paris. It lives up to every expectation from the little street you enter through and through the gates of the hotel. When we entered the hotel we were greeted by very friendly and accommodating staff at the concierge. We were very jet lagged and they immediately brought up some espresso for us to be energized to be on our way exploring the city. They were courteous, charming and professional and always willing to help. One example of their exceptional service was when my husband and I were walking through a part of Paris we did not know, we emailed them looking for a restaurant, they emailed us back right away with recommendations. The honesty bar, a bar that is in their sitting room that you can take out any beverage you want from juice to champagne to cognac and put your room number down to be accountable, is something we have never encountered before and it is a fabulous idea. The breakfast room downstairs is wonderfully old world with stones of the building that are exposed on the walls and the breakfast buffet was delightful. I was really impressed with the hotel, staff and the service that they provided and I am delighted to give an excellent review of the most charming hotel I have stayed in a long time.

I gave my 15 year old daughter a trip to Paris as a gift in July and we stayed at the Relais-Christine. I lived in Paris years ago and I knew that I wanted to stay in a central location. We researched hotels meticulously. This research was part of the fun. We kept coming back to the Relais-Christine as our choice because of the location, size, and unique look. We were not disappointed.

We loved our room (#57) and the location was wonderful. The hotel is in the 6th arrondisement and very close to the Seine, Notre Dame and Place St. Michel. Although located in the bustling 6th arrondisement, the hotel is located on a small side street and it is very private and quiet.

The front desk staff was reserved yet quite enthusiastic when asked for suggestions. We loved the restaurant that they suggested just across the street.

We also loved soaking our sore feet in the hot tub in the downstairs gym at the end of the day. This is an overlooked but "well worth it" part of the hotel. There is not an extra fee and the gym and hot tub are lovely. This part of the hotel also has that former abbey feel with the vaulted ceiling and quiet stillness. What a wonderful way to cap off a day of nonstop walking and sightseeing.

We also enjoyed meeting other travelers while we enjoyed a drink in the lounge area after a busy day.

A special thank you to Director Jean Luc Chomat for his help in researching a cooking school. My daughter was set on taking a cooking class while in Paris. We researched and found 'La Cuisine Paris" online but we were unsure about whether it was legitimate. Monsieur Chomat called the cooking school and made sure it was legitimate. Our subsequent class at La Cuisine Paris turned out to be one of our best experiences during our trip (see my review on La Cuisine Paris).

We loved our room - we had a duplex and found it quiet and comfortable. It was one of the larger rooms. Overall - a wonderful experience.

I was a bit nervous returning to the Relais Christine for a second time because I thought it couldn't possibly live up to the great memories I had. But it did - and more! Charming and quirky, from the lovely and comfortable surroundings, to the gracious and helpful staff, it's a real pleasure to be there. Its location is perfect, set back from a quiet street in the heart of St Germain so plenty of entertainment and restaurants close by if you can bear to drag yourself away.
