St Germain des Pres is chock full of hotels of every type, romantic, baroque, super-luxe and this place. Euro chic on a designer scale in the public areas and tiny in the rooms - it's Paris after all. It's chasing the Mallorca set, lots of casual expensive designer details, Macs everywhere, artful lighting, large sofas and a whiff of Ralph Lauren with its etched glass doors and taupe recliners in all the public areas. I love it but it's not very Rive Gauche, if you want a less euro-trendy atmosphere stay away, if you like a clientele all dressed in Prada and ultra smooth service from the reception and and the adorable concierge staff this is your place.
On the downside the rooms are a bit pokey. Perfectly ok but for 400 Euros a night you hope for a few more square metres. The bathrooms are a bit underwhelming too they feel a little bit Ikea rather than Dolce & Gabbana. Nevertheless I'll be back, it's a perfect location and the staff are very obliging, they can get you into almost any restaurant with short notice, and they cannot do enough for you - except mend the heating which was bust in my room on the night I was there. They tried hard but it wasn't to be. It didn't spoil the stay and they did everything they could to fix it including offer to move me to another room. A good option for this area.
