Hotel Esprit Saint Germain epitomizes classic Paris and retains the timeless charm of the Left Bank. This 5-star property near the monumental Church of Saint-Sulpice is everything one may ask from a prestigious Left Bank hotel. It is designed to resemble a luxury mansion of some wealthy world traveler who, after a lifetime of exploits, decided to settle down in the Parisian most coveted neighborhood.
The interior decor of the hotel strikes us as a joyful mix of traditional French and colonial style- most evident in the elegant lobby bar. Renovated by Didier Benderli of Kérylos Intérieurs, Hotel Esprit Saint Germain is a delicate blend of elegance, comfort, and refinement, with the “panther” carpet and custom colors. The overall design is rich, the colors are muted and pleasing to the eye and materials used are top-notch. This is one of those places that simply radiate quality without being garish or ostentatious. Esprit Saint Germain wins with a homely atmosphere and discreet luxury.
Fireplace Lounge with its fine, artistic details and its romantic ambiance
Hotel Esprit Saint Germain comprises 28 spacious and fully equipped rooms and suites. Although the color palette may vary, all rooms are very elegant and decorated in a similar manner, with interesting combination of Art Deco and colonial style. During our stay at the prestigious Deluxe room, we were blessed with a wonderful view over the rue Saint Sulpice and its namesake church that proudly dominates the scenery of this part of 6th Arrondissement.
Penthouse suite with private terrace
The location of the hotel is astonishing. Esprit Saint Germain is nestled in the heart of Parisian most beautiful quarter, Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Everything here is in a walking distance, from the Louvre museum to the Luxembourg Gardens, from Boulevard Saint-Germain with its historic cafes Les Deux Magots and Café de Flore to the Right Bank’s famous shopping district rue Saint-Honoré. Esprit Saint Germain invites you to explore all the nuances of this fabulous city, and not only that – it offers you an ideal home to come back to.
Esprit Saint Germain is also equipped with the fitness room and sauna where guests can exercise and relax during the day. After the busy schedule in the “City of Lights” this highly sophisticated and generous hotel offers complimentary champagne as well as other refreshing drinks at the lounge bar, accompanied with appetizers like Indian cashews and cherry tomatoes. Here, you may enjoy a peaceful evening, listen to music, read a book of your choice and simply enjoy the timeless spirit of the Left Bank, with a thought that this historical surrounding welcomed so many poets, artists, musicians, actors, directors…, and world’s aristocracy. There is a reason why Picasso, Matisse, and Hemingway once lived here.

The service throughout the hotel is impeccable, with friendly and highly professional staff that is always ready to accommodate every whim of their distinguished guests. Concierge service is very knowledgeable and will suggest the right restaurant or bar according to your personal preferences. This is what makes a good hotel great and we can only recommend the skillful service of Esprit Saint Germain.
In a nutshell, Esprit Saint Germain is truly wonderful hotel experience and one of the most romantic places that we have ever visited. Blessed with a beautiful location and built with love and great care for details, it presents a perfect place for couples, honeymooners or just simple romantics in a search for Paris that echoes the one from Woody Allen’s Oscar-winning film.
