Le Saint Germain
Reviews of Le Saint Germain
Very French, and Americans have to adjust to its smaller scale. Safe, clean, and 5-star location on left bank, Townhouse building with only 11 apts in the building. Off St Germain by 20 yards, so quieter and convenient to everything. Shops and restaurants are right there. Double security doors frame entry vestibule with combo on one and key for other. Excellent feeling of safety here and in area, esp imp. at night. Perfect place for women to stay in Paris.
Two underground stops within a block, one goes to airport. Easy to get around, takes no time to learn. Get pass for week.
Top front unit #11 is duplex with upstairs bedroom and bath (2 single beds, sloping roof, skylights) while futton sleeps 2 in LR with another bath off kitchenette. Bathrooms have small showers and excellent fixtures that are above French normal standards. Two huge opening french door/windows in LR have views of Notre Dame.
TV French only. Elevator is small, typically French. Front desk staffed with English- speaking person with mixed hours, but no need for more. Like having your own small apt in Paris, much better than a hotel room.
3 star rating only because it isnt like a large modern timeshare with a balcony on the water and hundreds of units in the building. This is Paris at its best, but Americans are used to fancy lobbies, help with luggage, etc. This is ideal location, and all you need are sneakers to explore. Casual Paris.
Very rare to have apt in Paris on left bank. You will feel fortunate to be there. France Location bought up many weeks and blew out RCI. Lots of French families come to city and never trade or sell b/c Gov't controls MF at at $300 per year.
