Hôtel Saint Jacques Review

Nearly every wall in this Latin Quarter hotel is bedecked with faux-marble and trompe-l'oeil murals. As in many older Paris hotels, each room is unique, but Second Empire furnishings and paintings dominate. A Montmartre cabaret atmosphere enlivens the breakfast room. Wi-Fi is available in the lounge bar. About half the rooms have tiny step-out balconies that give a glimpse of Notre-Dame and the Panthéon. Room No. 25 has a wraparound balcony, and No. 16 is popular for its historic ceiling fresco and moldings.

    Excellent location. The staff was very helpful and made us feel very comfortable. Would stay here first when we go back to Paris.

    Hotel St Jacques' Location is Perfection

    We have recently returned from Paris, staying in the Latin Quarter at Hotel St Jacques. We liked it a lot. The location was especially good for us. Lots of little cafes, bars, and very good restaurants within a couple of blocks up the hill. While there, we looked in other nearby hotels, but none were cuter IMHO, and most were more expensive. Our room had a twin and a double bed, a small marble fireplace, a desk, a clothes armoire, a narrow balcony with a pretty street view in all directions. Breakfast was offered for 14EU, but we went to nearby cafes, instead, and never checked out the hotel breakfast. Le Coupe-Chou and Le Petite Prince de Paris-- both wonderful restaurants-- are on the same street about two blocks up from the St Jacques. Blvd St Germain is two blocks or so down the hill. Several markets for fresh fruit, pastries, and coffee are within a block. The Sorbonne and Palais Luxembourg are an easy walk, as are Notre Dame and Hotel de Ville. I reserved the Hotel St Jacques on-line, well in advance, for 193 EU, including wi-fi and all taxes, with a free cancellation policy. Front desk personnel speak English, and were very friendly and helpful. They arranged a shuttle to CDG, for 18 EU apiece, which was a great deal, considering how long the drive was.
