Recent guest reviews
Rue Mouffetard is lovely in the evening. Jardin des Plantes a great start to the day.
The hotel was in an ideal location. Lots of nice little eating places around. the hotel is located in One of the oldest streets in Paris . Lots of wonderful places to visit by just walking. The room was tiny but we managed well. It was extremely hot at that time and no AC. We did however have a rotating fan and again we made due. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was always beat and clean. It was a great visit and experience. Jutta D. From Texas USA Shawnee S. From New Jersey USA
I was very happy with the hotel. The location is excellent. Staff was helpful. The hotel is very close to subway (not an RER station) and is well connected by buses. Best of all, it was near my conference location. Markets, restaurants are also plentiful. The room was very reasonable by Paris standards, quiet, clean. Breakfast was available for an additional 9 euro or so. Can do better though right around the corner. I would certainly stay there again.
The hotel is a short walk from the metro station and there are a few bakeries and plenty of restaurants nearby to choose from. Staff was personable and helpful with advise, especially Clement ( Clemont ).
We visited Paris for my birthday weekend. Hotel Saint Christophe was very simple and basic. The room had all the necessary things, but very small and cramped. The bathroom was small as well, found hair in the shower. The staff were very nice.
It was just the right hotel- clean, friendly staff, and nice location.
The hotel has Old-World charm and is located in a great part of the Latin Quarter, very close to the best bakeries and restaurants. It's a short walk to Notre Dame, and right around the corner from buses and the subway. It was the best deal for our money I would stay here again in a heart-beat!
Hotel St Christophe is a great place to stay if you are interested in a clean, comfortable room in a very convenient location with a lovely staff. This is the kind of place that you would find in the smaller towns of both France and England where the owner lives on premises. Not fancy, but quite practical. The rooms are small, but again very practical with a surprising amount of storage space for your clothes and interesting nooks and crannies for things like clocks, suitcase racks and coat hooks! I have no idea how to pack light, even though I've been traveling for 30 years and I was able to get everything into the closets and bathroom with no trouble. And I came to shop! Although I did not need extra room, I did find out that they do have a baggage lock up. I adore the fifth arrondissement, but there are others who feel uncomfortable in the student quarter for some reason. I arrived in Paris during the Charlie Hebdo situation, and primarily for the fantastic January sales. Many of the women in our loose group (that were there for the same reason) seemed very concerned for us, but they also seem to be the kinds of visitors who only feel safe at the Intercontinental at the Place de la Concorde! While I do not court danger, I find that approach is often much less stimulating and memorable. I never once felt unsafe while at the Hotel St Christophe, or anywhere for that matter. I walked late at night, and relied completely on the Metro to get around: no problems. I also met a friend there who is quite status conscious and averse to anything even close to "downmarket" and she thought the hotel was lovely. In fact, she plans to stay there again in June when she returns for the midyear sales. The staff is fabulous - very down to earth and helpful, and even willing to help you with your French! It would be difficult for me to dislike this hotel simply because of them. I would not recommend this hotel for: - people who are exceptionally tall or large, particularly if they are staying with a partner as the beds would not be comfortable in the situation. - those uncomfortable staying at anything other than a "name" hotel Quite close to the Place Monge Metro station which features a great fleamarket several days a week. If you are like me and love a great deal, of I urge you to visit the Nina Kendosa shop on rue Mouffetard which is walking distance from the hotel. Relaxed, chic, stylish clothing at an unbelievable price point. there are a number of other funky shops and bistros along this very cool street. Not all fabulous fashion is in the Place Vendome!
Forget the big chains and big prices. This hotel is one block from the Metro, but you may not need to leave this terrific Latin Quarter neighborhood! A block from the botanic gardens, a block from the roman ruins and a block from the best crepes, shopping and pastry shops in Paris. Walk to the Pantheon, Notre Dame, and Blvd. St. Germaine. Aside from the great location, the hotel is clean and modern. There is a small but effective elevator. For people with trouble going up steps, there are only two steps in the whole place. The rooms are not large, but the baths are modern and clean. Wifi is free but weak on the upper floors. The staff speaks English well and very attentive to anything that comes up. Again, the location can't be beat. You are staying in an area that is quiet and safe and has everything you need within a short walk. Enjoy!
Very friendly staff at this casual hotel. Expect to leave your key at the front desk when you go out. Room was typical small size for Europe. Very clean and quiet. Safe location, next to the Metro. Cafes, patisseries, Starbucks all in area.
Small quaint hotel with very helpful staff, very close to Metro and to a great dining/bar area ( Rue Mouffetard). room was small but clean.
Hotel St. Christophe is a dream - perfect Left Bank neighborhood, fabulous staff, cute rooms with great views, and great value for money. 20 minute walk to Notre Dame, 15 minute walk to Bld Saint Germain, 10 minute walk to Jardins de Luxembourg, 5 minute walk to Rue Mouffetard (Paris' oldest), and oh so close to great bakeries, cute shops, with a FABULUOUS wine shop nearly across the street (Vin et Whisky). Right along a very convenient and busy metro line 7. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. J'adore Paris!!
Excellent, helpful, English speaking staff. Great location.
My husband and I were staying for six days and were initially given an inside room, but asked for an outside room and were accommodated the next day. The outside room, on the 5th floor, had a charming street view and although a little noisy, also had the smell of freshly-baking croissants wafting up in the morning from the bakery across the street! We liked the twin beds (no fighting over blankets!) and the room overall was surprisingly roomy.
This hotel is in a great location, near the Metro subway and within walking distance of Nitre Dane and other attractions. The staff is excellent and very helpful. I would definitely choose this hotel again when returning to Paris.
The hotel fit our needs well. The room wasn't big, but we were not planning on staying in the room for more than the necessities. Romanatic or otherwise. The staff are fantastic and speak English well. It is close to the Metro, and small shops for wine, cheese and bread. For the location and price it was worth it.
We went to Paris in Peak summer and it was in the 90sF. You would expect that a hotel would have AC! Not this one!! We were struggling with a table fan throughout. It was so bad. Even the location wasnt super great except a 7 min walk to the subway which turned out pretty convenient. Nice lesson for my husband and I to check for AC/ heater the next hotel you would go to.
the hotel it's OK, small room, but clean, no air conditioning, very poor and expensive breakfast; a good location beside Place du Monge.
Friends and we booked 2 twin-bedded rooms w bath after a lovely Seine cruise and I thought the hotel would be a decibel down, but it was not. Of course it was not luxurious, but it was clean and tidy, a great value for the money and the staff is extraordinarily pleasant, welcoming, and helpful. We walked to Notre Dame and to Musee d'Orsay, about a mile.. Great French restaurants abound!
This place was slightly difficult to fine, and a bit of a hike to nearby attractions. That said, it was perfectly fine, albeit slightly cramped. Not a bad place to stay, but there may be better out there.
