Hôtel Saint-Paul Rive Gauche
A warm welcome and an enjoyable stay are guaranteed, along with fresh organic croissants, crisp sheets and a flickering open fire.
The Hotel Saint-Paul Rive Gauche is one of Paris' best-kept secrets. Owned by four generations of a Franco-British family, the recently renovated hotel delivers excellent levels of service and levels of attention to detail that sets it above the rest. The result is an effortless combination of Parisian elegance with English comfort.
Bedrooms are available in different sizes and are all quirky and individual in their decor. Some have magnificent fabric wall hangings, tones of which are picked out in the furniture and decor of the rest of the room, others have vintage floral wallpaper, and one even has a hand-drawn mural across one wall. The bathrooms are as immaculate as one would expect, with towel heaters and supplied with L'Occitane en Provence bar of soap. Some rooms enjoy views of the Lycée St Louis, while those at the front of the hotel look out onto the bustling Rue Monsieur le Prince.
With its unbeatable location, Hotel Saint-Paul is certainly a hidden gem for a stay in the Latin quarter.
What we love
- The hotel was once the residence of the Franciscan monks of the Cordeliers Convent and charming historic details that can be found throughout the hotel, such as the former well in the breakfast room, which once provided fresh water for the entire neighbourhood.
- The beautiful shared spaces, such as the dining room, which reflect the antiquity of the building, whilst offering modern comforts.
- The welcoming staff are polite and attentive without being obtrusive.
