This beautiful 18th century townhouse is a peaceful haven located in a quiet street in the chic Saint-Germain district. The streets around the hotel harbour many architectural jewels such as the Hotel Matignon or the Maillol museum. The Duc de Saint-Simon’s rooms and suites have a unique style and rich decoration. You will appreciate the comfortable antique furniture, fine upholstery and warm colours of the rich fabrics that decorate each room. Relax in the cosy ambiance of one of our sumptuous lounges after a day of sightseeing in Paris. The Duc de Saint-Simon hotel wishes you a very warm welcome.
LOcation and bar/launge downstairs very cosy and stylish
Breakfast was non-exististent even for additional money, only tea/coffee and bread. This was very dissapointing considering we paid extra for terrace specifically to have breakfast outside. Noone picked up reception phone in the evening. No minibar inside the room.
interiors are charming and full of character, great atmosphere and personal touch, with extremely helpful staff.
Reception area is very cramped and awkward for processing arrivals and departures, always with luggage inconveniently stacked awaiting rooms to be ready, or taxis to arrive
Its chic and luxurious, in a fabulous St. Germain location, with first-rate service and amenities
This was not an issue for us but if you book in warm weather, make sure that your room has AC
We had 3 rooms and they were able to put us all on the first floor with a door that closed off the 3 rooms. We didn't have to move our luggage upstairs which was great. The downstairs bar was a fun meeting place for our group.
People seemed to have a lot of problems getting the wifi. Each day we had to get a new code and only one device could be assigned to that passcode. The furnishings are very elaborate and traditional. I expected something more modern.
staff and location
Hotel was being renovated and we were not advised of this. It was noisy, scaffolding was intrusive, and debris in hallway.
Although Duc de Saint Simon does not have exercise facilities or spa treatments, we felt pampered the entire visit. Our room was cleaned and refreshed perfectly every day with luxury linens and the bed turned down at night. The staff was extraordinary - friendly and accommodating - fluent in English and willing to provide any service requested promptly. This was an excellent location for catching the metro trains, but many museums were just a short 10 minute stroll away. We always felt safe in this neighborhood. Truly a wonderful experience!
This is my favorite hotel in Paris. It is very well located, it is small and has a wonderful atmosphere. Interior decoration is done in exceptional good taste, the service including room service is impeccable.
Parking is a problem, but that is common in Paris. The rooms are not cheap, but worth every Euro.
This is a very attractive simple French Hotel in a great quiet location. They look after you very well. OneSwedish guest, who was a frequent visitor, said it was the nicest hotel in Paris.
Location. Charm. Staff.
Size of some rooms
leaving. We were so warm - and thirsty - it made us dread returning to our rooms. OK, yes, it was a very good base for walking to several of the museums we wanted to attend. It was pretty but not the look you want when you are hot and know you're going to continue to be hot.
lack of air conditioning and a mini-fridge at that price level pretty disgraceful.staff nice enough but not adorable as at the Hotel Colbert, and I personally found the area neither beautiful nor interesting. Hard to find somewhere to eat, e.g. Could have used more guidance from desk when we asked - "a cafe on the corner" not much help when we found it not appealing. Oh, and a biggie:the toilet didn't flush at least 3 times, and then a few hours later it did (and it was not anything I did)
