Expert review of Citadines Saint-Germain
There are branches of the Citadines appart'hotel chain all over Paris, but this decidedly upmarket version has the best location of the lot.The imposing belle époque building once belonged to the French railways and although there's nothing cutting edge about the decoration when you're inside, this is a great option if you're here for a longer stay or travelling with kids and don't want to eat in restaurants all the time or simply want to play at being Parisian.
On the riverside in St-Germain: the road itself is very busy but St-Germain is on your doorstep and you can walk to pretty much anywhere you want in Paris with Ile de la Cité and Musée du Louvre just across the Seine.
204 apartments include Studios that can sleep two, with twin, double or sofa bed, and Apartments that can sleep four, with a double bedroom and a living room with sofa bed. The look is neutral and businessey but they're well equipped and comfortable and all have a kitchenette with hob, microwave, fridge and mini dishwasher, and plenty of pots and dishes. Most rooms overlook a large internal courtyard, but a few upper rooms have spectacular river views.
A spacious lobby with an internet corner; there are also several seminar rooms.
A well-equipped kitchenette means that the Citadines is ideal for longer stays or self-catering but there is also breakfast on offer downstairs as well as coffee and hot chocolate available all day.
Efficient though sometimes stretched reception staff. As it's basically a form of short-term flat rental, rooms are only cleaned weekly unless you pay for additional cleaning.
Very popular with families of all nationalities, but also longer stay business travellers and groups of friends.
There are discounts for longer stays.
