Hotel Villa Saint-Germain

Hôtel La Villa Saint Germain des Prés

Paris, France

OUR RATING: Medium

Located in the heart of Paris's legendary literary district, the modern Hôtel La Villa Saint Germain des Prés is surrounded by lively restaurants, independent boutiques and little streets that can be easily explored on foot. The Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay are also within walking distance of the hotel. Despite its bustling surroundings, the hotel itself is very tranquil and provides a welcome retreat from the city. Chic and stylish contemporary decor in the public areas is mirrored in the warm but minimalist style of the spacious guest rooms. A muted palette, charcoal drawings, bold wallpaper and black-and-white photographs from the 1930s give the rooms a charming individual style.

OUR OPINION:

La Villa Saint Germain des Prés has an excellent location in the heart of Paris's left bank. It has a contemporary style yet exudes Parisian finesse and grace. We particularly like its chic bar, which is an ideal place for an apéritif.

Rooms

Rooms are modern yet refined, with plenty of natural light streaming through the windows, which look out over Rue Jacob, Rue Bonaparte or traditional Parisian rooftops. The decor is chic and minimalist but welcoming, with individual touches such as carefully chosen ceramics lining the shelves. Some have Parisian-themed wallpaper while others have charcoal drawings or vintage black-and-white photographs adorning the walls. Complimentary Wi-Fi, a TV and air conditioning come as standard. Depending on the room category, the modern bathrooms feature walk-in showers or showers over baths.

Location

Hôtel La Villa Saint Germain des Prés is situated on the left bank of Paris and takes its name from the famous literary district in which it is set. Within a short walk of the hotel you'll find many lively restaurants and cafés as well as pretty cobbled streets lined with antique bookshops or designer clothes stores. From here, the Louvre and Musée d’Orsay can be reached on foot in around 15 minutes.

Food and drink

In the morning, a buffet breakfast of hot and cold items such as fresh juices, baked goods, eggs, meats and cereals is served in the breakfast room. In the afternoon and evenings you can choose from the cocktail or wine list in the chic bar, which is adorned with 1920s artwork. While Hôtel La Villa Saint Germain des Prés doesn't have a restaurant for dinner, you can order room service in the evenings, which is catered by the restaurant next door, or head out to dine in one of the many other restaurants nearby.
