The stay at the Saint James was magical for my teenage daughters and I. Everything was wonderful, especially the gardens where we enjoyed moments of pause during our busy schedule. Pascale is the best concierge in the world and he even managed to track down my daughter's iphone which she left in the taxi on the way to Charles de Gaulle. 10 out of 10!

We stayed for 3 nights around Easter and we had a truly fabulous stay. The place lives up to is billing and, as a regular visitor to Relais and Chateaux properties, we were expecting a high standard - they did not disappoint. We were very fortunate to receive an upgrade to an amazing suite, which made the stay even more memorable. Not cheap, but if you are looking for a special experience in Paris, worth a try - definitely have drinks in the bar btw.

Great place; outstanding service; Superb environment. Staying at the St-James makes you forget about the noise and crowd of paris. Excellent restaurant. The last drink in the library brings you back in time. Expensive but worth it...

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.

Dear Madam,

Thank you very much for choosing us after trusting the advice of your friends and the reviews of TripAdvisor users. It is a great pleasure for all of us to read that you enjoyed your Saint James experience.
We aim at making each guest feel at home and I am happy that you felt like a resident of the very Parisian 16th arrondissement. Our concierges Clefs d’Or are very curious and knowledgeable, and always keen to recommend exceptional spots that are not touristy. Like in a home, each of our rooms and suites offers its own décor and we are always happy to show guests round when availability allows, in order to find the setting that suits them best.
The “turquoise” blue you refer to has been invented by decorator and art collector Madeleine Castaing, and the room you occupied is a tribute to her by Bambi Sloan.
We all hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back in a near future, to try our Michelin-star restaurant with Chef Virginie Basselot as well as the spa with its exclusive Guerlain treatments.
We will make sure to find the perfect room for you!

Yours sincerely,
Yves

We were made to feel very welcome, and at home during our stay in Paris. The room service was fantastic, and as was the breakfast. We were given maps and help whenever needed. They accommodated our daughter, and even upgraded us to a suite, so we could have more room for her cot. Thank you for your hospitality. We will not hesitate to stay again on our next trip to France.

My favorite hotel in Paris - by a long way

Very quiet old chateau inside the peripherique (and quite close to the highway for easy access). When you walk through the front gate you feel as though you are home.

Some rooms are 2 stories and some 1. If you have a preference you should indicate that when you make the reservation. I prefer 300 and 400 series rooms facing the front.

Library Bar is my favorite anywhere - atmosphere is perfect for a drink before dinner, after dinner or - ideally - both.

Concierge service is also excellent - friendly and very knowledgeable.

Hotel staff are excellent - friendly for sure and always seem happy. That is rare in a hotel - but then the Saint James is more like a home than a hotel.

There is a meeting room for small business meetings. It is downstairs and very quiet.

About 5 minutes walk to Metro (Port Dauphine or Victor Hugo)

If you can live without hustle and hassle then Saint James is heaven.

Room Tip: 300 or 400 series rooms facing the front are my preference 2-story rooms are good for couples tra...

The hotel Saint James is a luxury hotel in a nice small garden. It is comfortably located close to the RER station Avenue Foch and the metro station Porte Dauphine. I got an upgrade - junior suite which was spacious, nicely decorated and properly equipped - caffee maker, safe and other amenities which you would expect in a hotel of this class. The bed was very comfortable. Since the suite was under the roof, there were only roof windows. Therefore my room was a little dark. The hotel service was good, check in and check out were fast and efficient. The breakfast was included in my room price and it had a form of buffet where everyone was able to find something to be pleased. Of course, the relation between price and value is not very good but it is a usual situation in hotels in big European cities.

Room Tip: Roof junior suite is a good choice as it is comfortable and quiet if you do not mind that there is n...

Dear Mr B.,

Thank you very much for choosing to stay with us and for taking the time to post this kind review. I am happy to read that you enjoyed the services of our team as well as our facilities.
The Saint James Paris is the only chateau-hotel of the city, set in its private garden, and our rooms and suites are much larger than the Paris average (a Superior room is 375 square feet), making it a much better value than many other properties.
Each room is different and we will be pleased to assign you a room on another floor for your next visit, hopefully soon!

Yours sincerely,
Yves
