Esprit Saint Germain

Your Home away from Home in the Left Bank of Paris.

Esprit Saint Germain

Designed to feel like a private residence, Hotel Esprit Saint Germain is ideally situated on the Left Bank in the heart of Paris. Behind its 18th-century facade, this urban hideaway exudes a refined yet unpretentious ambience. This is exactly what you imagine a French hotel should be like — very intimate and warm, stunningly designed with real loving care put into each of its 28 rooms and lounges. When you arrive, you’ll be welcomed as a friend and feel at home with dedicated, personalized service throughout your stay. Be sure to stop by the living room regularly — a complimentary drink by the fireplace is always waiting.

Hotel Tip

Be sure to stop at Gerard Mulot around the corner from the hotel, world famous for its delicious macaroons. –Barbara King Leawood, Kansas

We enjoyed our stay at L'Esprit The location is located in a charming area and the service was terrific as was the lounge and amenities the hotel offers. We found the room to be much too small for our taste, so we would not return to this hotel.

This hotel is a small boutique hotel on the Left Bank. It was very well decorated and the staff was exceptional. Not being able to speak French was not a problem as everyone at the hotel could assist us. The food was delicious and they provided many extras. We had a king size bed in our room which was rather small but very comfortable otherwise. The hotel is set in a very lovely neighborhood and there are quality shops and good dining close by. Wish I could have stayed longer.

Perfect place for those who prefer smaller hotels with outstanding personal service.  Our family group had three rooms for our week here and so especially appreciated the comfortable, pleasant sitting areas on the ground floor.  Superb staff members (front desk, breakfast room, housekeeping) all work very hard to insure their guests' satisfaction.  Rooms are a bit small but nicely decorated, quiet, excellent lighting and baths and many thoughtful amenities.  Wifi works well. Joggers have easy access to the Seine pathway, and those who like to walk will find this a prime location for visiting most of the major attractions.  Breakfast menu has something for everyone and afternoon beverage selections a welcome benefit.

this hotel is over and above what you would expect a city property to be. The staff was friendly, helpful and very pleasant. We loved the decor and breakfast was wonderful. Our room was a bit small, but nice view and the amenities quite nice. Having access to complimentary wine and spirits everyday was a nice plus as well. Great to end the day by the fireplace with a nice glass of something good!

The Esprit Saint Germain was a wonderful experience. From the moment you enter through the front door you are made to feel invited and welcome. The staff is exceptional. No question or issue is too big or small for them to help you with. Just delightful! The hotel itself is warm and inviting. Everything from the breakfast to relaxing with wine in the evening adds to the atmosphere. The location is on the left bank and a comfortable walk to many of the sites you will want to see in Paris. This hotel is a true jewel in a wonderful city. On a scale of 1-10 my husband and I would give them a 12!

We would never have considered this hotel without the suggestion of our travel advisor. This is a fabulous hotel in the perfect location. The staff is helpful, friendly and patient. While there, I had an urgent business need. Their efficient -and complimentary - assistance with scanning, and even snail-mailing, made it easy. They happily helped us locate the docking location of the river boat we were meeting and arranged the transfer. The perfect hotel in every way.

The Esprit Saint Germain Hotel was in the perfect location for sight seeing, shopping and dining. The personnel were pleasant and very accommodating. The rooms are small and there is only a closet to hang clothes. Everything else had to remain in the suitcase because there were no bureaus or drawers to put them in. My husband and I highly recommend the cheese and wine platter that was served in the dining room. If you don't mind a small room, then this is the place for you to stay.

It was on a cute street not far from the restaurants. They offered us free drinks the entire time we stayed and because we booked with virtuoso we got this wonderful cheese plate whenever we wanted it. At night I opened the windows to the street for fresh air. Had a robe and stocked fridge in the room with no extra charge.

Esprit St. Germain is in a wonderful location, one block from St. Sulpice church. Many lovely small restaurants nearby and easy walking to some of the museums. The hotel staff was helpful and friendly. It's a small 28 room hotel and the staff seemed to get to "know" us quickly. Breakfast is served in the sitting room and was delicious with good choices. The rooms and bathrooms were small but comfortable.

The Esprit Saint Germain was over the top in perfection. From our arrival and check in to our departure every detail was spot-on. Carl at the front desk could not have been nicer or more helpful in orienting us to the hotel and helping with transportation requests. The breakfast was wonderful each morning and the open bar all day was a nice treat after miles of walking. The location in the left bank is perfect and I would be happy to recommend to anyone visiting Paris.

Small rooms, but great, young staff. Inconspicuous in a great area. It was neat to have wine and Champagne available anytime. The liquids available in the fridge in the room were great. Breakfast was OK, not great, but who cares. Lounge was great for late night reading. Room very small. I could not figure how to keep water from getting on the floor in the shower. No gym to speak of, but Luxembourg gardens are 2 blocks away for a beautiful run. Great location, great staff, great lobby!!!
