“Exquisite treasure in Paris - Splurge!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

The St. James-Paris is an exquisite treasure...unlike any 'hotel' - no matter how high end. This is a stand-alone property, a unique chateau on the western side of Paris, with spectacularly decorated individual rooms, beautiful grounds and fountain in the courtyard, and gorgeous decorating throughout. Each room has a personality, and despite the luxury of the overall Chateau, there is whimsy throughout as in the lights that are hot-air balloons, and the two black-and-white zebra heads above the fireplace. The staff is warm & welcoming, the ambiance is calm and peaceful. It is such a treat. Location is great for walking 6 blocks to the metro at Place Victor Hugo, 8 blocks to the Arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysees, even about 12 blocks to see the Eiffel Tower lit up at night. Lovely neighborhood full of small shops, cafes, patisseries for that morning café au lait and croissant. The St. James is a splurge and worth it for a few special nights in a magical city.

Dear guest,

Thank you so much for choosing us and for taking the time to post this amazing review! It is a real pleasure for all of us to read that you liked the atmosphere, décor and setting of our little chateau as well as the caring service of our teams.
Conveniently located close to major sites, restaurants and boutiques but hidden in its private garden, the Saint James Paris offers a peaceful environment with especially spacious rooms, each of them with its own décor. In summer, it is a one of its kind experience to unwind in the garden with the outdoor bar and Michelin-star cuisine of our chef, Virginie Basselot.
We all hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon!

Yours sincerely,
Yves

If you see the hotel, you can't believe that it is just 10 minutes walk from the champ élysées. It's the best hotel I ever stayed in Paris, very beautiful, clean and the rooms are soundproof. I was there with my mother and they helped her to walk, in the morning she went for a massage and she came back very happy for the good manners and professionalism of the staff. Room service excellent....Next visit in Paris for sure I go back in this hotel.

Our stay at the Saint James was the last 2 nights of our 6 week trip from Paris to Spain and Portugal and back to Paris. The Saint James was an excellent place to unwind and prepare for the long voyage back to the U.S. The Hotel is located in a quiet section of Paris, but only a 20 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower and the river. Our last night was also my birthday and the staff went out of their way to wish me well. The General Manager Yves Monnin was very professional and accommodating when he addressed an minor issue of concern to us. Many hotels promise you a memorable stay, but the Saint James fully delivered on that promise. Well worth a visit if only for a few days. Thanks Saint James.

My husband and I stayed in a suite for our 10th wedding anniversary. We were looking for something special and were not disappointed. We were welcomed with a bottle of champagne in our room which was a lovely introduction.

The hotel itself is magnificent, from the reception to the room interiors. Staff were attentive and helpful without being overly formal, it has a lovely relaxed feel. Sleep quality was impeccable, a deliciously comfortable bed and almost completely soundproof, we slept till 10am for the first time in years! Noon checkout was a real selling point.

We enjoying the chef’s tasting menu and wine pairings, served al fresco in the delightful garden. The 16th and surrounding area was also great to explore, lots of boutiques and trad architecture. We lunched a traditional bistro nearby called Stella which was recommended by the hotel and did not disappoint.

All in a brilliant weekend, we can’t wait to return!

Our three night stay in the beautiful chateau hotel in the 16th arrondissement made for a particularly memorable experience. We had wanted to stay at a special place and the Saint James Paris lived up to our expectations. The service was impeccable and the accommodations spacious. The fine decor with a bit of whimsy created a setting that was both elegant and interesting. The large and impressive bar was particularly memorable as it was filled with old books to the high ceiling. For a lovely retreat in Paris, the Saint James provided the perfect and quiet retreat after spending full days visiting museums, sites, and enjoying wonderful culinary experiences.

My husband and I stayed here in mid-May as part of a six-night Paris vacation to celebrate his birthday. After reading many rave reviews online, we had high expectations and were not disappointed: we were upgraded to a beautiful junior suite; enjoyed the quiet charm and lovely hotel gardens and club (a pleasure to return to after full days of sightseeing); and were impressed by the helpful and attentive service (great job from the concierge staff).

This a a unique property, decorated with whimsy and class. It is a bit further out than many hotels (located in the upscale 16th arrondisement), but metro stops are just one block (Port Dauphine) and two blocks (Victor Hugo) away, and there are cafes, patisseries, bistros and restaurants within easy walking distance. If you value beauty, excellent service and amenities, and appreciate being slightly removed from the tourist centers of Saint Germain, the Marais, or the Champs Elysees, the Saint James provides a terrific experience. I think they should be rated five stars, instead of four.

We stayed here as a couple (for the last time). It was a great introduction to Paris for us. Staff was extremely helpful and standards of even the basic room was high above standards. I definetly recommend this place for special occasions like anniversaries and proposals in Paris. Everything is designed to make you feel special; a nice chateau experience.

Room Tip: Even basic room was very high above standards of paris.
