“Best hotel in Paris”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 via mobile

Upon being greeted at the entrance by the Concierge and ushered to reception, one knows this will be a wonderful stay at Paris' only chateau hotel. Entering the hotel, we sashayed our way up the grand staircase to Room 306; a black & white balloon theme which overlooks the entry too the grounds and the grand fountain. Staff are impeccable! Nothing is too insignificant or too difficult. And their English is brilliant. You WILL feel like a prince and princess during your stay! We look forward to our next visit to Paris and our stay at this Grand Hotel.

We stayed at the hotel in December for a short one night stay. It is an amazing building with plenty of character. Location is good, around a 5-10minute taxi journey (which are cheap) to any of the main places that you would want to see. The staff were very attentive and helpful. Would definately stay there again. Stay clear of the laundrette though 47euros too iron a shirt and a dress is a little steep!

We recently spent a last minute wkd break at this hotel and we cannot fault it! From the excellent customer service to the attention to detail and from the first class recommendations to all the little extras you are sure to be made very welcome with your every need being met! Close to transport links and within walking distance to some of the best parts of Paris we felt we were able to experience both the city centre attractions and some of the local life! Our room was upgraded on arrival and the staff from the start were most attentive. It is completely understandable why they are no. 1 on trip advisor! Thank you for a wonderful stay! xXx

I love this place as it is a very charming unique manoir in a small park .And this in Paris ! Silent .Comfort.
The only reason why i not come here more often is because you need transport and time to go to city centre .If you have the time i can strongly recommended it. Junior suites are top for the price. Also very easy parking for bigger cars .

Dear Philip0010,

Thank you very much for choosing our little château and for stressing out its main assets in this kind review. Our rooms and suites are indeed particularly large for Paris, and our property located in the upper part of the very chic 16th arrondissement, offers a unique resort-like feeling in the city. We are among the very few properties offering complimentary car park to our clients, who can also use our convertible Smart car and our bicycles to visit the capital.
The Saint James Paris is located at a 10-minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe and a 15-minute walk from the Trocadero. Metro line nr 2 and RER line C are both at a 2-minute walk.

We all hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon.
Yours sincerely,
Yves

Ok so the first thing that captures the imagination is the magnificent entrance into the property. It is sumptuous. Get there around sundown with the fountain illuminated and it will be the start of an incredibly romantic adventure. The chateau, in the center of the city, is truly sumptuous. The suite was great. The short walk to the Trocadero, Eifel Tower, Champs Elysees made it very convenient. We've stayed at the best of the best, also in Paris, and this rates way up on the top of the list. Let's just say that a day where you start at St James, do some shopping, eat at Epicure and end at St James, it's magnificent.

I booked this through American Express, not knowing anything about the property. This was our first trip to Paris and it won't be our last visit to Paris or to the Saint James! This was a wonderful trip. The hotel was fabulous and the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. The accommodations were top shelf and the service was wonderful. The location is perfect for seeing Paris. Convenient to shopping, 1 block to the Metro, everything!
The grounds and lobby were decorated to the max for Christmas. We were concerned about spending Christmas away from home but it sure felt like a traditional Christmas at the Saint James.
We ate breakfast in the hotel every morning (4 days). We even discussed going to a cafe for breakfast on our last day but everyone felt the food, service, atmosphere and staff could not be beat so we ate our last breakfast at the hotel as well.
I could not imagine a better vacation than a stay at the Saint James Paris.

We stayed at the St James as a surprise for my husband's birthday and boy was this place full of surprises. We were upgraded to a luxurious room over 2 floors and were greeted with a complimentary bottle of champagne and a lovely note to my husband. The staff were exceptionally warm and helpful. The location was perfect - in a quiet road but just a short walking distance to the Arc de Triomphe. We loved our room so much that we cancelled our plans for our final morning in order to relax in our room. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a romantic, luxurious and very special holiday. Thank you St James - we can't wait to come back!
