Hotel Saint-Paul Rive Gauche****, charming break in the timeless heart of Paris
> Book now
A boutique hotel fully renovated, the Hotel Saint-Paul Rive Gauche has a particular cachet that gives it the appearance of a large family residence. With its half timbering and exposed stonework, guests are transported into another time in the heart of timeless Paris.
Situated in the heart of Saint-Germain des Prés, a few steps from Place de l’Odéon, this 17th century residence offers 31 guest rooms full of charm on five floors. The rooms are furnished with wall fabrics in large bright floral motifs in each of the 31 rooms and suites and add to the authentic charm of the half-timbered ceilings, and the glass tables, made to measure oak furniture and Renaissance style seats, all in a light and airy atmosphere. Rooms overlooking the courtyard offer a view of the prestigious Saint Louis high school whilst the more spacious ones, including two with four-poster beds, overlook the Rue Monsieur le Prince. Note: the highest ceilings are on the 1st floor and will delight lovers of timbering and four-poster beds.
The most romantic will opt for the bijoux guest room on the top floor, overlooking the Paris rooftops and the yard of the Saint-Louis high school, or the superior room, situated on the ground floor and overlooking the hotel’s small interior courtyard. Often booked for honeymoons or wedding anniversaries, it has a Jacuzzi and a Roman shower. And that little extra touch: a ceiling of sparkling stars … just above the bed.
Far from the uniformity of guest rooms in standard hotels, the Saint-Paul Rive Gauche**** is a unique place, so much so that regular guests quickly strike up friendly relations with one another.
The communal areas have also undergone major renovation that highlights the original structure of the building. In the reading room, guests can lounge in large ‘Haute-Epoque’ armchairs opposite an ecological chimney place. The breakfast room is situated on the lower ground floor in the former wine cellar and features a well which gave the Hôtel Saint-Paul its original name – 'the Hôtel du Réservoir' – , where local residents used to come to draw their water.
