We decided to stay in this hotel in the 16th arr after reading the Tripadvisor reviews and asking friends. We really were torn between staying in the popular areas and this quiet district. No regrets at all after 5 days at St. James. The hotel facade is so pretty and the interiors are quite unique. We were placed in a long/somewhat narrow room, which was like a spacious suite, with lovely interiors once you got used to that turquoise shade of the curtains and some walls. (Not everyone is upgraded, after all!) We found out during our stay that the hotel is within walking distance (1.5 km?) to the Arc de Triomphe along Victor Hugo road with its posh boutiques, and within a 5-minute walk to two churches, several boulangeries (the one at the corner of the roundabout and Rue Boissiere is great), groceries, fruit stands, and Metro stops. We even found the bus that goes quickly to the Eiffel Tower and a stop of the RER C, which you take to get to Versailles. We felt like we were residents of this neighborhood. The best part about Saint James is that the concierge's desk is right at the entrance, so you can ask them anything and they are always available to help. We relied on the night concierge named Mr. Maxime Hardel for many inquiries, and the other concierge recommended our best dinner (of many excellent meals in Paris) at a nearby 1-Michelin star restaurant called Les Tablettes of Jean Louis Nomicos. There are a few issues that can still be improved in the bathroom, but not enough to diminish their rating.
