Reviewed 15 August 2014

We have recently stayed at Le Relais Christine. From the moment we arrived we received great service. All the staff were friendly and welcoming and reception were able to advise on transport, sight seeing etc. The hotel has a comfortable residents lounge where there is an honesty bar. The rooms are clean and well equipped. Those over the street which is generally very quiet do hear the rubbish collection early in the morning but there is no other traffic either vehicle or foot as the hotel is in a side street. It is conveniently situated within walking distance of the metro, Notre Dame and many restaurants. The breakfast was one if the best I have sampled in France, my only comment being the size of the lovely room where breakfast was served. We had to wait one morning over 15 mins for a table to come available, it was worth the wait. We will certainly visit Christine again.

Room Tip: Courtyard/garden view.

Dear Gill,

Thank you very much for choosing the Relais Christine for your stay in Paris and for posting this very kind review.
It is a pleasure for all of us to read that you appreciated the service and the recommendations of our team.
The location of the Relais Christine in the small beside street “la rue christine”, is very quiet and in the same time central, surrounded by restaurants and important major sights and museums of Paris.
I am happy that you enjoyed the breakfast which is served in the basement in our historic and medieval breakfast room under the vaults.
We look all very much forward to the pleasure to welcome you back!

Warm regards,

Jean Luc – General Manger

I spent Christmas in Paris with my now husband- my first trip to Paris!- and stayed at the Relais Christine. It was the perfect hotel- beautiful, cozy and warm ambiance, the service was friendly, courteous and helpful, breakfast was divine, and it was perfectly located. We have been recommending this hotel to all family and friends since our visit, and will certainly be staying here during our next Parisian getaway.

Forty years ago we visited Paris while on honeymoon and last week we went back there again and stayed in the Relais Christine Hotel. We just loved it - the cosy old style ambience of it where we were made very welcome by the staff. A hotel car and driver picked us up at CDG airport and delivered us to reception where we were immediately shown around.
The monastic history of the building is evident especially in the dining room in the basement where an authentic tome rests on a table at the door. One could imagine the monks of the house of Hermits of St Augustin silently traversing the narrow corridors going about their business. A lovely buffet breakfast was available to us every morning.

The location of Relais Christine is very good, near Notre Dame which attracts you back all the time, and St Michel & the Metro. It was a pleasure to walk around the locality and take in the feel of this lovely city knowing we could call back to the Hotel at any time and have a rest in order to go sightseeing again. A very pleasant sitting room accommodated us in this respect.
The concierge was very helpful and assisted us on how to get to Versailles and Montmarte etc and here too we purchased our tickets for a boat trip on the Seine.

A complimentary bottle of Champaigne was delivered to our room on the second night of our stay to celebrate our wedding anniversay. We enjoyed it to the songs of Edith Piaf from the CD player provided in our room.
There are two very pretty wrought iron swings in the front courtyard of the Hotel Christine and we became children again every day as we came and went and had a little swing on them! A guest could sit out there in the quiet of an early morning to read or write.

We thoroughly enjoyed our return visit to Paris and also fell in love with the Hotel Christine that helped to made our stay a memorable one.

We have stayed here on a number of occasions over very many years. A quiet, stylish hotel - secreted away in a side street on the Left Bank between the Seine and the Boulevard St Germain. We have never been disappointed.

The staff are unpretentiously attentive and supportive. Breakfast is served in what must have been a cellar - but has adequate space - and the breakfast buffet is generous. There is a lounge in which one can sit, talk read and drink - a useful facility. There is also a small enclosed garden for the quieter tete a tete.

Convenient for the Musee d'Orsay, St Sulpice for the organ buffs, and the cafes of the Boulevard St Germain.

Only complaint - we have never worked out how to open the bedroom doors - the locks are an intelligence test which we have always failed - at least this means security is not a problem.

We will go again - enthusiastically.

Dear Chris,

Thank you very much for posting such a nice and enthusiastic review.
It is always a pleasure for all of us welcoming you.
I am delighted that you appreciate the central location of the Relais Christine, and the service my team delivers.

Our breakfast room is situated in the basement, a vaulted medieval chamber which, we suggest, may have been originally the kitchen of the building.
It is true, we still conserve real keys for all our rooms. To open the door, one need first to pull the door before pushing and open it. I am sorry if this was an inconvenience.

We are looking forward to the pleasure welcoming you back very soon!

Warm regards,

Jean Luc Chomat

Stayed here with my husband and two children for four nights. The set up was perfect. We were able to stay in suite that had twin beds downstairs and a queen bed in an upstairs loft. We had two bathrooms. This property is in a convenient location and we walked to the sights easily. Beautifully decorated and with an attentive staff, I highly recommend this hotel. Loved it!

A gorgeous superbly furnished hotel in a wonderfully convenient Paris St Germain location. The hotel concierge arranged our transfer from our early morning arrival at the CDG airport. We were provided with an early check in to a delightful two-storey room. Breakfasts just divine and a graceful start for our European holiday
