For sure the best Hotel I have stay ever. To resume it was PERFECT. Everything was just amazing from the reception to the laundry service. I have no bad comments for this Hotel, every time I will fly to Paris, I will not think twice, and if they will be fully booked, I will not fly to Paris.

Had a great stay in Paris, partly thanks to Saint James. Fantastic hotel, we had a great room with really nice street views. Very comfortable beds and nice deco. Comparing to other hotels we stayed previously in Paris it is a gem. Great breakfast with a wide choice. Really recommend it,.

A very beautiful hotel both inside and out. We were fortunate to get a room on the third floor which had great views of the streets (and skylights!). We had dinner and the hotel and were quite impressed with the service and quality of the food. We also had a chance to have lunch and drinks in the library bar which is a wonderful setting. Every staff member was very helpful with any request. Thank you for making our Parisian holiday weekend special!

This was booked as a Christmas present for my Dad and I and it exceeded all expectations. Every member of staff was smartly presented, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel itself is impressive and beautiful and lovely to have drinks in the library bar at the end of the evening. The rooms were comfortable and immaculately clean. We were upgraded to a junior suite which was a lovely surprise. It was peaceful and luxurious and a perfect place to stay whilst in Paris. I would 100% recommend this hotel.

Whilst the breakfast was lovely and very good quality, I still probably wouldn't say the selection offered was worth paying €39 pp for as there are many places near by where you could get breakfast for much less, however the breakfast room is beautiful so if you're in the mood to treat yourself, it was a lovely experience and the service was high quality.

The hotel is a very short walk from the Victor Hugo metro station so very easy and convenient to travel around Paris from the location of the hotel. The concierge was also very happy to order taxis. We used Paris Shuttle for the first time from the airport, which was €30 for two people. Cheaper than a taxi but you share with other people, so depending on when the other people are arriving at the airport / where they are staying in Paris, you can end up waiting around a little bit. I think the best value is to jump on a train from the airport and it's very easy to do, but, with luggage, the shuttles are convenient.

Room Tip: I can't imagine that there are any bad rooms in this hotel and it was lovely and quiet even with...

Dear Madam,

Thank you very much for offering the Saint James Paris as a Christmas present to your father and for recommending us “100%” to fellow travelers! It is a pleasure for us to read that your choice proved right and that you enjoyed the décor and atmosphere of our whimsical chateau in Paris as well as the personalized service of our teams.
We are located in a very convenient area for visitors: an upscale and safe neighborhood at a few minutes’ walk from shops and restaurants, major museums and of course the Trocadero and Champs Elysées. As you kindly mentioned, we are also very close to 3 metro/train stops and easily accessible from both airports. Private transfers can be booked with our concierges as well.
We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you and your father back in the future.

Yours sincerely,
Yves

I booked the Saint James Paris hotel as a surprise honeymoon destination for my wife, and we were both blown away by the spectacular opulence of the hotel. It is utterly perfect for a romantic Parisian holiday and is a fantastically positioned hideaway.

I had contacted the hotel prior to travelling explaining the reason for our visit and when we arrived we were complementary upgraded to a suite with a handwritten welcome and a bottle of champagne in the room.

The room was fantastic - quirky, interesting, large and beautiful - we didn't want to leave and spent many happy hours just lounging about in the bathrobes ordering room service - exactly the way one should spend their honeymoon!

We each also had an all over body hour long massage in the hotel spa that was really amazing and left us feeling fantastic, if a little sleepy!

The staff were all absolutely brilliant - from opening the taxi door upon our arrival with "Welcome Mr & Mrs Palin, we have been expecting you" to wishing us pleasant evenings out when we left to explore the city, they were all expertly courteous and a pleasure to talk with.

So all in all - this hotel is everything that you can imagine, and more! Just be careful... It only takes one visit and you'll be hooked - my wife and I are already planning our return!!

Room Tip: Explain why you're visiting and who knows, you might get upgraded too!

We visited Saint James Paris for our 10th year wedding anniversary. The hotel was beautiful and very friendly and help staff. We were given a complimentary upgrade and a bottle of champagne on arrival. Our room was lovely and although just behind reception, was extremely quiet. We didn't eat in the hotel, but plenty of restaurants nearby.

The concierge were amazing, booked our tickets to the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Moulin Rouge and into various restaurants. All the recommendations were superb. Drinks are expensive 21euros for a G&T, but guessing that is the going rate in such a hotel. Very enjoyable visit and super staff with great customer service. Thank you.
