You’d be hard-pressed to find a better Left Bank location in Paris. Just a cobblestone’s throw from the Panthéon and the Sorbonne, the Hôtel Saint-Jacques is surrounded by pretty Hausmannian facades and fun boutiques (including one of our favorites: Au Vieux Campeur, which outfits the city’s sporty types before their camping or skiing adventures). There’s also the lovely co-working cafe called Nuage, housed in an old church that was once the high school of Cyrano de Bergerac. This is a tranquil neighborhood, just a quick stroll from Notre Dame cathedral and the Seine.
After a day hitting the boulevards, it’s a joy to come back to a lovely gem of a hotel that’s serviced by a great staff. The Hôtel Saint-Jacques stands out for the professionalism of its multilingual staff. Keen to pick up an artisanal, “made in Paris” gift for that special someone back home? Looking to try an authentic bistrot de quartier? Need to book online museum reservations for a hot new exhibition? The hotel’s staff is on hand to help.
Whether you are in the capital for business or leisure, the Hôtel Saint-Jacques serves as a lovely retreat. Amenities include free wireless Internet, the “Toulouse-Lautrec” lounge bar where you can sample a glass of absinthe while admiring the ancient works from the mahogany bookcase, and a copious buffet breakfast. (Think eggs, organic bread and viennoiseries, freshly squeezed juices, and more!) Enjoy the hotel’s warm welcome as well as the original decor, inspired by the Paris of the Belle Époque.
