Part of an apartment-hotel chain, the Citadines Prestige Saint-Germain-des-Pres Paris specializes in flexible 4-star stays, so guests can customize their Paris break however they choose. Budget one-beds occupy the cheaper end of the scale, while huge studio rooms come with separate living and kitchen areas, for a home-away-from-home feel. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer plenty of light, and sloping glass roofs and orange tones give the lounge and breakfast areas a touch of Parisian chic. For business guests, the apart-hotel comes stocked with Wi-Fi (fees may apply), meeting rooms, and in-house options like dry-cleaning and ironing services.

Neighborhood
Citadines Prestige Saint-German is found on the bank of the Seine River, across from the much-photographed Pont-Neuf. Outside, there are numerous antique shops, art galleries, cafes and clothing boutiques to explore and enjoy, along with the loftier exhibits at the Louvre Museum nearby. The diminutive Place Furstenberg, a tiny island in a car-free street, is also close and makes for a great contemplation spot away from the busy Paris thoroughfares.
Hints and tips
For a quick treat any time of day, grab a hot chocolate at the reception area.

Use the hotel's local gardens, the nearby Vert-Galant, to escape the noise of the city for picnics between shady maples and chestnut trees.

Weekly housekeeping and ala carte daily cleaning are provided.

Nice apartment hotel with great location

We liked this hotel, although there were some mixed emotions on some of the services. The hotel is in a very good location, short walk away from Notre Dame and right next to the river Seine. The room was good size and clean, but it was missing a proper table. The hotel had no amenities, such as pool. The front desk personnel were straight forward, but not overly friendly. Breakfast was priced fine, but the parking was very expensive. For Paris hotel, we found this very adequate for us, but with a little more effort, they would be great.

Great Location, tiny rooms

The location is fantastic. 50 yards from the Pont Neuf with all the locks. But the rooms are tiny. Just bigger than the double bed (no queen). The place is tired and has that smell that cries out "replace me". The breakfast is meager and expensive. The staff was excellent and helpful. Overall fair. But next time I'd look for a larger room in a hotel that's been more recently upgraded.

Unexpected Week in Paris

We were only expecting to stay at this hotel for two days, due to a rail strike in Germany the day our train was supposed to leave it turned into a week in Paris (worse places to be stuck - I know). I have to say this hotel and the staff were great, they always said "Bonjour" or "Bonsoir" every time we came into the lobby! The free coffee #really more of a machine barista# in the lobby is a great money saver as a Café crème on the streets of Paris is 3 euro alone. I also loved our little kitchenette which was fully stocked, I know because I tried #poorly# to cook a French meal. There were some things though that I felt could be improved upon - we stayed in early Nov and it was still pretty warm out but the hotel had already switched the air off and it was heat only. We had to sleep with the windows open at night and fight off the mosquitoes. Maybe this is an American thing but individual Heating and Cooling per room would be nice - but once we MacGyver'ed the sheers into mosquito netting we were fine. The only real complaint I had - I felt for a long stay hotel 9 euro a load #wash and dry# for laundry seems very steep to me. Otherwise I loved the place and would be back or stay at a Citidens property any day!

Location, location, location!

Everything about our trip to Paris was perfect. Citadines is literally in the heart of Paris, within walking distance to EVERYTHING (Orsay, Louvre, Orangerie, Notre Dame, Seine right out the door, various neighborhoods to explore, and even the Eiffel Tower (a beautiful 40 minute walk along the river)). There was a plethora of restaurants to choose from all within steps from Citadines and metro stops every block. We stayed in a studio room and it was so spacious, comfortable, and clean. The staff was very friendly , welcoming, and helpful. After a long day exploring the city, we looked forward to going back to our comfortable studio. We also loved the water dispenser and coffee machine in the lobby.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

We got the 6 day museum pass at the airport when we landed and it more than paid for itself by day 3. It covers museums AND many of the major monuments AND allows you to skip the lines. You can also use it as many times as you want to go back into an attraction more than once. Other tips: Buy Rick Steves POCKET Paris guide. Incredible reference and very helpful for planning your days and also includes info on the history of Paris, art, etc. We took it with us everywhere. Be prepared for major crowds at Versailles. If you really want to experience the city, WALK. Taking the metro is good for the end of your trip when you're exhausted, but don't ride underground to get to your destination when you can be walking and taking in the sights and splendor of Paris!

Great Week!

The staff were wonderful...helpful, courteous, and professional. Room was alright for the price. Certainly could use some cleaning of the rug, but that is no big deal! Location is the best thing about the hotel. Right in the middle of everything!!!! Would stay there again and use the kitchenette more next time...would save bundles of money on eating.

Geat Location, Room for Improvement

On the downside, guests should be told in advance that an apartment with two levels with a circular staircase does not have the toilette on the sleeping level. And the 11 Euro breakfast cost lacked value, On the upside which outweighed the downside by far, the location made walking to Louvre, Orsay, Invalides, the Eifel Tower, the Pompadou Centre all very doable. Good restaurants at reasonable prices are nearby.

Amazing location

The location could not be better, within 5 to 30 minutes walking distance from every place you will want to visit, and 3 minutes walk from St Michel station that is an easy train ride from CDG airport. The internet in the room is incredibly slow, but is better in the reception area. Room service is a little strange - they make the bed, but do not refill coffee/tea/ etc, even when asked for it. Having a kitchenette is nice, even if you don't plan any cooking.

Really can't get much better than this

The location - on the Seine 30 seconds from Pont Neuf - couldn't be better. 10 minute Walking distance to Notre Dame, the Louvre, the D'Orsay museum. 30 minute walking distance to much, much more. At least 3 Metro stops within 10 minutes' walk. Cafes, restaurants, markets, it's all within a few blocks. The staff: always extremely helpful and knowledgable, from suggestions to local restaurants, shopping, you name it, they knew it. Always friendly, no matter what. We had a weird issue with the room safe, and it was fixed first thing in the morning. The room: very comfortable. It was actually a studio apartment with a small kitchen, so we were able to go to the market for breakfast stuff. Fully stocked with appliances, pots and pans - you could easily cook full meals. The only teensy weird thing - you have to have a room key to open the front door, at all times. So when you first arrive and don't have a room key, it's not at all obvious that you're supposed to buzz in and announce yourselves. We stayed at this hotel for 14 nights and loved every minute.

Three fabulous restaurants within 3 blocks - Chez Fernand, Le Christine, and a 3rd on the same street as Le Christine (on Rue Christine). All are a little pricey. The best food in Paris is a bit pricey.

Great location

This is a great way to do Paris, especially if you have kids who maybe fussy about what they eat etc. We had room 2504 which was an upgrade Club 1 bedroom apartment with river view. The river view is worth the extra cash on it's own. Book these early though as there are not that many with a view over the Seine. It is not noisy as the windows have very good noise insulation. There is a bedroom which can be divided into two twin beds and a small kitchen with hob ( no oven) microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer etc and all utensils and a sitting room with a sofabed. Not the most comfy in the world, but it is fine. There are supermarkets nearby where you can get everything you need. Given that you can pay 8 euros for a coke and 10 for a beer in a cafe - not such a bad option! We did a mix and match of eating in and out - made it cheaper and more relaxed. The decor is a bit dated ( swirly brown carpets) and it is smaller than the photos make it look, but it was more than fine for 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The staff at the apart-hotel are great and speak English very well. They are very helpful. The breakfast is usually extra ( approx 12 euro pp) and is not worth it to be frank. It is just a continental buffet and not wonderful and not worth the money. Ours was free as part of the upgrade, but I would not pay extra for it having experienced it. The key is the location though - in the left bank, with the book sellers opposite - you come out and can stroll in either direction up to Notre Dame ( 10 mins ) or the Louvre ( 10 mins) and you within 5 mins of a Bateau Bus stop ( water bus).....we loved every minute and would recommend!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

If you haven't got reservations for things like the Eiffel Tower do it online before you set off as if you just turn up to get a ticket you will wait hours and hours! The hotel has fast internet, so make your ticket booking there - it will save you hours of waiting....hind sight is a wonderful thing we thought as we waited and waited.....
