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

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.

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!

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.

The loaned WiFi was a life saver to figure out where we were as we could connect to Google Transit Paris for walking/ Metro/ directions.
