-no double glazing at the top floor room which meant you could hear everything on the street (along with the daily 6:15am rubbish truck. Informed reception they simply said that the owner of the place will be informed in the evening
-tiny tv, no knee space between toilet seat and towel heater, closet only partially opens the room is so small.
-little choice for breakfast

Pros:
-modern design
-extremely clean

I love this hotel, i will stay here over and over again. The chief concierge is an amazing guy he helped us the minute we walked in . We had issues with our Cab driver who took us to the wrong hotel and kept the meter on. He drafted a letter of complaint on our behalf. The brunch at this hotel is amazing they also offer breakfast buffet which is very good for Paris standard excellent. The manager at the breakfast corner was very nice he let me take food up to my room. The best service i have ever recieved in europe. Thanks alot i highly recommend this place my room was big for paris standard i had space to put a baby crib with no problems a view of St Germain. Lovely place

The hotel was a little difficult for my taxi driver to find because it is on a tiny street in the middle of a neighborhood of tiny streets, many of them one-way. But we did get there on the second or third loop around and from the moment I was greeted by the doorman I felt warmly welcomed.

It was bitter cold (December in Paris) so the warm welcome was especially appreciated. They checked me in very efficiently and gave me the key to an utterly charming room on the top floor. It was tiny of course, and the bathroom was also tiny, but I was traveling alone and did not mind that. The best part was that because I was on the top floor the room had tall garret style windows that tilted inward at the top, as the roof sloped. They were covered with heavy draperies that were held back against the bottom of the wall by brass rods. The overall effect was cozy, romantic, and OH! so very Parisian. I never wanted to leave that room.

Sadly, I was only able to spend one night there. I never tried the bar or restaurant because I had dinner elsewhere with a friend who lives in Paris. But I hope to return and beg for a top-floor room again, because that space was magical.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor have cozy garret-style tilted windows. It's a nice reminder that you'...

You always know what you will get at the Bel Ami - no surprises and consistently lovely service and a great experience. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated and quiet - we had no problem sleeping even though our room was over the street. Comfortable beds, fluffy robes and slippers, a quiet serene atmosphere, a nice lounge with bar service. The breakfast is not cheap but is very generous and a great selection and nice design decor in the breakfast room. We sometimes stay in a cheaper hotel in Paris but end up coming back to the Bel Ami for a treat as it so consistent and you can step out the door to a great paris neighbourhood. The area is perfect for Paris, you can walk to Notre Dame (and Shakespeare & Co), the Musee D'orsay and the Louvre, not to mention up to the Jardin du Luxembourg. There are lots of great cafes for a drink or meals at any time (The Bonaparte or Pres aux Clercs right by the hotel, La Palette on the rue de seine and many more) or proper restaurants (Le Perron, Le Petit Benoit). Walk down the rue du Buci for food options and you'll find what you need if you just want to drop in somewhere fast and casual. I also love the old fashioned atmosphere at the Braissiere Lipp on Bd Saint Germain. Walk around the rue de seine for small galleries, antiques and bookshops and you'll enjoy the window shopping.

Location is perfect for everything in Paris which is a walk away... Lovely bars/open air restaurants in the area. Staff delightful, particularly on reception (not always true in Paris!). Very nice reception area, lounge, bar, breakfast area. Only downside is the v small bedrooms which are ok but not 5 star and a little disappointing for the price. I would stay again but try to see if they have any larger rooms. paris in June sunshine is unbeatable!

Lovely boutique hotel in THE BEST location in Paris! We spent 2 weeks in st germaine and only got on the metro twice and the bus once! St germaine is so close to everything! Walking distance to the major sights and literally 2 min to the louvre and musee d'Orsay. The hotel and staff were great. Very personalized service. And loved all the peonies in the lounge!

We spent four nights at this hotel, and honestly I have never been in a better location in St Germain. The room was decent in size (this is Paris after all, the bathroom was nice and new, the decor was a bit...too much is the word? Like acid green carpet too much, or maybe was the pink mirror in the armoire? Yes pink.
Oh well, who spends time in the hotel room anyway? We basically just slept there, and I must say there were not noises at all, double windows make the trick, even if we faced the street on the third floor.
We never had breakfast at the hotel, as we were around the corner from Les Deux Magots and Cafe de Flore, so why bother. The atmosphere at these two places definitely is much better and sort of quirky, which is more fun.
So, I definitely recommend this hotel. Also, service was impeccable. The concierge and everybody were so nice and professional. I send my compliments to the management, if they ever read this review, because it is not easy to have employees so qualified and nice.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 318, it was great. Then we upgraded to a suite on first floor (117) and heard some...
