Expert review of Hôtel Saint-Vincent

A taste of aristocratic St-Germain-des-Prés in a beautifully converted golden stone mansion.

Home from home is a hackneyed phrase and probably often a misused one – after all if you wanted to be at home then you wouldn't be staying in a hotel – but if home means living in an 18th-century hôtel particulier, then the Saint-Vincent fits the bill. The elegant stone mansion was converted into a comfortable hotel in 2008, with a grand carriageway entrance and elegant bedrooms. It's a beautiful, relaxing hideaway, though some may find it too calm, but there's plenty of cafés and restaurants for action nearby.

Location: 

Classic Left Bank: a quiet street yet perfect for the café terraces and fashion boutiques of St-Germain, the antiques shops of the Carré Rive Gauche and the Impressionists at Musée d'Orsay.

Bedrooms: 

The 22 bedrooms are all different but combine contemporary and Napoleon III touches, decorated in warm browns, golds and burgundies, with high ceilings, sweeping curtains and subtle lighting. I prefer the noble second- and third-floor streetside rooms, some with tall floor to ceiling windows than darker interior rooms. The top floor is mansarded, while three duplexes have bathrooms reached up a small stairway. The spacious two-room suites have herringbone parquet floors, antique desks and period marble fireplaces.

There is a fitness room.

Who stays there: 

A wide mix of nationalities stay at this hotel. 

Price advice: 

Look for promotions from mid-July to the end of August (for stays of three or more nights). The same owners also run the simpler Hôtel St-Thomas Aquin next door, which has a similar sense of style for lower prices.

Pros: 
Beautiful building
Great location
Cons: 
11am checkout
