Looking for an authentic stay to use as a base to discover Paris? Than Hotel Saint Paul Rive Gauche is just the perfect place for you.
Hotel Saint Paul Rive Gauche is a 4 star boutique hotel located between the fifth and sixth district of Paris more specifically between the Latin Quarter and Saint Germain.
Authenticity is for me besides location, a very important priority when it comes to finding a perfect place to stay when traveling. I really love overnight stays with a unique style and story.
Hotel Saint Paul Rive Gauche
Hotel Saint Paul Rive Gauche is a 17th century building. It was completely renovated in 2015 but the French elegant style and authenticity still remains in many facets such as the staircase that is mesmerising.
Also the breakfast room is a souvenir from the past. It’s made in the original water well that used to be the only water source in the neighbourhood. That is why the previous name of the hotel was Hôtel du Réservoir.
These original touches make the hotel so special and interesting.
There are 31 bedrooms each with a very own identity. Every room has vibrant flowered fabrics on the wall but they all vary in style because of the different colour themes. The rooms also create a rustic vibe through the traditional exposed wooden beams on the ceiling.
In the reservation you can even choose if you want a double bed or twin beds.
There are also bigger rooms to make the hotel accessible for family travel.
There are two rooms on the top floor that can be made into one flat for 4 persons.
And on the ground floor there is a duplex available
Every room has a bathroom with shower and/or bath. In the bathroom you will find towels and toiletries from L’occitane, which is by far one of my favourite brands. To top it off there are also bathrobes and slippers provided so you feel comfortable like home.
There is a minibar in the room with beverages and snacks.
You see that the rooms are very well cared for and are cleaned every day.
The staff is very welcoming. They are accessible day and night at the reception and you can ask them for anything. They make you feel immediatly at home.
The check-in aswell as the check-out procedure goes smoothly. There is an elevator to bring you to your floor.
Working and Relaxing
Very important for us Bloggers and off course others; there is Wi-Fi available throughout the whole hotel. So you can enjoy working in your room or in the downstairs cosy decorated lounge area.
In every room there is a television and in the superior rooms there is even a Samsung cell phone. This phone you can use for free during your stay. How great is that?
If you order breakfast you can enjoy the breakfast buffet in the authentic water well downstairs. The buffet is small but contains everything you need including those delicious French croissants I adore!
The hotel is located between the fifth and sixth district of Paris, more specifically between the Latin Quarter and Saint Germain. This one of my favourite neighbourhoods in Paris. It is so vibrant and lively. There is so much to experience here from large busy boulevards to little cobbled streets, beautiful architecture, lots of cosy and trendy restaurants and bars, beautiful boutiques and art galleries.
The main attractions in the surroundings are the Jardins du Luxembourg, the Sorbonne, Notre-Dame and the Louvre Museum.
The hotel is located on a walking distance from different metro stations. For me Hotel Saint Paul Rive Gauche was located perfect to use a base to explore Paris.

Where to eat in the neighbourhood?
There are some great and authentic restaurants in neighbourhood of hotel Saint Paul Rive Gauche Restaurant. One is located almost next to the hotel. It’s just on the corner of the street and is called Polidor. The interior is retro and reminds me at a refectory in a good way. If you like to share a table with others and are keen on grandmother’s cuisine this is just the place for you.
A bit further there are two beautiful decorated art nouveau restaurants Bouillon Racine and Pharamond. The interior of these restaurants is just mesmerizing! Even going there just for a drink is already an experience. For these restaurants it is best to make a reservation.
What to do in Paris?
Paris is a big city. To get to know the city you need more than a couple of days. Visit some of the attractions you want to do, but don’t forget to enjoy the real Parisian lifestyle.
Stroll the streets of Paris. Go (Window)shopping on the champs Elysees. Admire the beautiful art nouveau buildings. Get wanderfully lost in the little streets of the Latin Quarter. Indulge in the French specialties such as crepes and macarons, cheese and good wine. Enjoy the magnificent views. Tip: Don’t forget to get to the rooftop of the Galleries de Lafayette for an amazing view. If it is your first time visiting Paris, you can also choose to do a guided tour. I can recommend the guided tours from A French frye in Paris.
