“Quaint - perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

Stayed four nights and loved the hotel. Love the location, how it was located on a side street, the staff at the front desk, and our view out of our window onto the courtyard. The bed was very comfortable, the towels great, and used both the bathrobe and slippers. We needed help getting our concert tickets and the front desk made a few calls and everything worked out. We were impressed. Love the sitting room off the lobby also. We looked for a quiet hotel, in a nice location, with an exercise room and a bar. This had it all. The couple we were traveling with had a room that overlooked the street and said that they heard some noise in the morning, but nothing they would call bothersome. They would have preferred a little more light in the room, but I thought it was perfect. Thanks for the chocolates at night also. Did not eat at the hotel, so I do not know how the restaurant was. We ate breakfast, just a few blocks away and also had wonderful dinners at two different restaurants on the same street. And the street is only one block long.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the courtyard.

Dear guests,

We are so happy to read you found the perfect hotel in Paris, one matching all your expectations of a place to stay.
Having a dedicated housekeeping service and an efficient front desk is our way to show our guests our great care for their daily comfort. The concierge will be particularly attentive to your dinner reservations on your next stay since we unfortunately do not have a restaurant of our own. But as you know, you can enjoy excellent dining experiences in the close surroundings of the hotel.
We hope to be your elected home in the city of light now and wish to see you soon!

Best regards

We stayed 5 nights in this Relais location. We loved the privacy and quiet of the hotel. The front desk staff were kind and helpful until there was a miscommunication regarding a need to change our room. One fellow, who didn't have his information straight, was surprisingly discourteous. The rest of staff made up for his lack professionalism. Breakfast was spendy (as expected in any Parisian hotel) and a bit lack luster. Our rooms (we experienced 2 w/our need to move) were very nice. It is not a modern hotel, so the furnishings/decor are traditional and nice. The bathrooms are spacious. Housekeeping does a good job. We love to walk and this location made for an easy stroll to many of the sites and restaurants. We would definitely consider staying here again on our next Parisian visit.

Room Tip: Spend a little more for the larger rooms.

Dear Yvonne,

First of all, please accept our apologies about the unpleasantness that occured at the moment you were changing rooms. When room moves have been confirmed upon reservation and are still necessary when you arrive, we try to make these situations very simple for you in order to spare your time. I am sorry that one of the staff member did not assist you as you expected but I am glad this did affect neither your stay nor your good impression of Relais Christine.

Thank you for your compliment on housekeeping. As regards your comment on the rooms' decor, our property is a traditional one for sure. However, you will probably love to hear that we renovate 5 rooms every year and that we do have more contemporary decors. I hope you will enjoy one of these rooms on your nexy stay!

We look forward to welcoming back.

A one night stay with friends midweek in October.
Down a narrow back street in Saint Germain, near the river bank, the courtyard was welcoming and immediately peaceful from the hubbub of Paris.
Close and attentive service from every staff member we encountered. The Junior suite was a little warm and the aircon noisy, but it was comfortable and spacious (for a left bank boutique hotel). I do always wonder about room designers who feel that a 40 watt bulb is enough and then paint the walls in dark colours, but maybe that's me getting old. Also the bathroom is yet another triumph of form over function. But downstairs the Honesty Bar and Breakfast room are lovely and inviting. I realised that I had not brough a tie for a formal dinner and this was soved by a very sharp front desk guy who unwrapped a complimentary (and very classy) tie they had been sent by Galleries Lafyette. I'm trying to find any excuse to go back.

Cannot say enough good things starting with location, right in the heart of St. Germaine and easy walk to the Seine and Ile de St Louis. We had a funky room with an upstairs sleeping room which we liked but would not be good for people with bum legs. Concierges were outstanding, three for three in restaurant suggestions. Also, very cordial. Breakfast the morning of our arrival, included in our rate the rest of our stay, was pricey.

Dear guests,

We thank you for paying us your first visit.
We are delighted to learn that our property's location and concierge team were key assets to your experience of the Parisian left-bank.
The Relais Christine proposes a whole variety of rooms and junior suites on one or two levels. We hope your next visit in the city of lights will be the occasion for you to discover a totally different accommodation too.

We hope to see you very soon!

My husband and I have stayed at the Relais Christine three times now and I will start off by saying that the staff remains wonderful and helpful as always. This time, however, we noticed that the hotel needs a bit of brightness to it, a lift maybe. The breakfast room is like a dungeon. I would never want to go down there alone at night! Ha Ha, and our room, which was called a Jr. suite was really dark and gloomy. I would suggest they move breakfast up to their wine/relaxation room which is right off the registration. I would be so much more cheery. The rooms could use a going over, brighter bed covers, and better light. I still love this place and the location is fabulous, but it needs ....something.

Dear guests,

First of all, we thank you for your faithfulness. Returning to visit us is the best compliment you can make us.
We also thank you for a constructive comment on our property. Let us mention that we renovate 5 of our 49 rooms every year in order to satisfy properly our guests' desire of luxury and comfort. Concerning our vaulted breakfast room, its location in the remainings of the old Abbaye des Grands Augustins is our way to honour the history of our property located itself in one of the oldest parts of Paris.
Do not hesitate to contact us directly to organize your next stay in order for us to make you a proposition perfectly suited to your expectations.

We wish you all the best until your next visit.

An excellent hotel with superb service. Lovely view from our bedroom of the garden. Room cleaned perfectly every day. Front desk provided lots of help. Did not enjoy Chez Ferdnand so much as food was just ok and there were too many americans. Liked the Chicken Rotisserie better for food and ambiance. Had lots of good advice from the Front desk about how to find things near the hotel. Great location to walk from in any direction. Had great tea served in the lovely sitting room. Are still enjoying the chocolate cookies from the room. Our rules only permit us to eat one every other day. Bed was comfortable and we slept well.

Dear guests,

What a pleasure to read that every single attention paid by our team to your well-being has been noticed. Our rooms over-looking the inner courtyard garden are most valued as you can imagine (although rooms on the courtyard and street-side also have a unique style) and we are happy to hear this was to your taste.
We believe that despite your rule on the chocolate cookies from the hotel, the box is now empty! The one ready to welcome you in your room next time will surely remind you of your Parisian life!

We look forward to welcoming you soon

After seeing it last visit, we tried Relais Christine this visit. It was expensive but the location, facilities, excellent service and luxurious environment largely justify it.
We were looked after by competent staff that provided a welcoming and clean and tidy environment in the rooms and hotel generally.
The breakfast was the best that we had without chef prepared hot breakfast.
The beds were large and comfortable, and the rooms were spacious and well appointed for Paris.
The gym was well set up - except for no rowing machine - but it was too humid and hot even when the air conditioning had been on for some time.
Availability of bicycles was a big plus for those with the temerity to us them.
