Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Aramis Saint Germain Paris
A great hotel
Loved this hotel. It was clean, comfortable, had a cozy atmosphere and the staff were very helpful. Room had everything needed for a comfy stay - immaculate bathroom, hairdryer, tea/coffee making facilities, TV with Eurosport!! Location excellent - a lovely bistro right next door, with easy access to 3 tube stations and also bus routes.
We were greeted on arrival with a tremendously warm and open welcome from the receptionist - one which continued throughout our stay from all of the reception staff.
The room was reasonably small but this fitted in with the hotel's charm and character. Got an advance discount rate for a room with a jacuzzi style bath, which was a bonus although not sure whether it would be worth paying the full rate for.
Hotel is in a great location - three metro stations are within walking distance with one directly opposite across the street. Didn't try the hotel breakfast but there are plenty of cafes nearby which serve a decent one at reasonable prices.
Would recommend this to anyone who wants a hotel with character offering good value for money.
October 2004 stay
Stayed 3 nights in October for 200 U.S. per night.
Very nice and clean hotel. European style rooms with many amenities. The staff were all very pleasant, helpful, and friendly and spoke very good English. The location is excellent for left bank visitors as it is in the heart of the St. Germain area. 15 minutes from the Seine, 10 minutes from Luxemborg Gardens. The brasserie next door was pleasant enough for a few drinks. Many local restauraunts, cafes and patisseries from which to choose. There is a also a monoprix a few blocks down Rue de Rennes.
Despite the nice presentation and fresh squeezed juice , would opt for the local patisseries rather than the 12 Euro breakfast in the hotel.
Would stay there again for sure, but will likely search out a better value next time as there seem to be many hotels for less which compete in terms of what is offered.
Selected it after reading reviews here and I liked it a lot
I selected this hotel after reading the reviews on this site and I liked it a lot. I paid 100 euro/night and spent 5 nights there in August 2004. Very convenient location - we were walking everywhere, friendly personnel, small, but nice room with good size bathroom, air conditioner. No complains at all. Well, we just slept here, but who will sit on hotel room when Paris is just a few steps from your door:-)
Great location, really nice hotel
Researched many hotels in Paris, read great reviews on this hotel and am glad we stayed there. Location was great. Hotel was very nice. Typical European hotel - small room, small bathroom but it was functional, very clean and convenient. I would definitely recommend this property. Thanks Trip Advisor!
There's a Mouse in the House
I have stayed at the Hotel Aramis twice on business trips. The first time I stayed there in March 2003 there was a little mouse in my room.
My colleague also found evidence of a rodent in his room. He thought it was a rat by the size of the droppings and knibbles on the furniture.
Otherwise the staff are friendly and helpful, which may explain why I stayed there a second time in November 2003. Fortunately monsieur mousie stayed away for that visit.
A bit of charm
It's true that the exterior is not pretty and the rooms are small. But Beatrix and William are wonderfully helpful, very guest-friendly and speak perfect English. The location is great, just across the street from the metro and a 15 min walk to Blvd. St. Germaine. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, good air con, tv, etc. and have a bit of charm. I'd certainly return, the Aramis is comfortable, friendly and excellent value for money.
Staff couldn't be more helpful!
This hotel offered a great location and helpful staff. Beatrix at the front desk was kind, patient and went out of her way to help us during our stay. We stayed in a triple room and while it was small, it was immaculate. Good location, near cafes, bakeries, shops and metro across the street. We walked to many locations from this hotel.Only disappointment was the outside of the hotel is not as pretty as posted on the internet web site. We payed $190. US Easter week 2004 and were happy with our choice.
A great little hotel
We stayed at the Aramis St. Germain for four days in April 2004. The rooms were very nice and clean. They are not large, but that was to be expected in Europe. While there is no restaurant in the hotel, they do provide breakfast (croissant, baguette, cheese, coffee, tea, juice, for $10 euros) if you don't want to walk to one of the many cafes nearby.
The location is great - it is within walking distance of many sites, and many shoppes. The hotel staff was great-always friendly and very helpful. We would definitely return.
Great Deal in Paris
We stayed at the Aramis for 5 nights and had a great stay. The rooms are small (normal for paris) but adequate, the staff was great and the location can't be beat. There are two metro stops within a block or so, walking distance to the louvre, luxembourg gardens and st. germain.
This is not a flashy hotel, but for the price (we paid 115 eruos per night), it was great.
I highly recommed the aramis.

Almost as amazing as the art was the
Louvre itself. Depending on what area of the museum you were in the
ceilings vaulted twenty or more feet above your head. They couldn't

... 17th century. Well deserved. Great tour! FOOD OMG, it REALLY is that good! We have only been to neighborhood bistros so far, but each one has been unbelievably delicious! Tasting authentic French Onion soup, Salad Nicoise, the crusty bread, croissants, escargots, and a tiny shop that only sells those incredible tiny and colorful macaroons, you realize how good quality food can taste. During the tour today, I couldn't ...
We had to meet at France Tourisme at 7am so it was an early start. Up at 5am. Still it was warm so we weren't sleeping well. There were only 8 people on the tour so they had organised a small van with Antoine as our guide. It had excellent air conditioning so we were all very pleased as no-one seemed to have any air conditioning where they were staying.
We left Paris about 7:20am and headed for the Loire Valley which is about 250km south in central France. It seemed ...
... also a tourist and was happy to switch to English to ask me directions. I still didn't know though.
Eventually I arrived at the Republic Plaza. In this middle, there was a large statue with the ladies: liberty, fraternity, equality (the French values saying) on it. Very cool. Except, that it was covered in graffiti. People had spray pained all sorts of things all over it. Some, were nationalistic sayings "we are all Charlie," referencing the recent Charlie ...
Sometimes you have to hope that the weather cooperates. And sometimes you just have to exercise a little patience and, eventually, things will turn out. Or you just have to come back another day, another time, maybe even another vacation. Today was all about trying again later.
Today we found ourselves on Ile de la Cité, which is the historically centre of town. It is also where the Notre Dame cathedral is ...
