Hotel La Perle
Travel Blogs from Paris
After more than a week on the road, we arrive in Paris. This is not our first visit, so we avoid the obvious sightseeing and deep into enjoying the city. We feel a bit like locals when we walk or cycle around, exploring the streets of charming Marais, relaxing in the many parks and enjoy the amazing cuisine and wines of Paris. We do visit back a …
... it was hard to tell what the kids were more excited about. We headed over to meet the newly engaged couple and had Emerson present them with their "wedding ears" we figured there was more chance of them wearing them coming from her :)
Indiana Jones had to compete with Gab and Emerson suffering collective seizures when they found Elsa dolls and dresses for sale, but eventually we made it to the ride - awesome! ...
... in the streets and lots of colours, despite the rain. We had missed the big part of the parade in Bastille place which was lucky traffic wise!
We had a lovely dinner at one of their favourite restaurants nearby, tried some local dishes like Bone Marrow, Rillette & Tartare de Beouff. For desert, that I couldn't fit in, I close a lovely panacotta with berry sauce.Too much food!
Today, Sunday, we started quietly... I wasn't feeling too flash after too ...

Flight was uneventful but not very comfortable. Secretly hoped to be upgraded to business class seeing as it's easier to do for a solo traveller. Unfortunately, it didn't happen, so I was stuck in economy with the prole. Air France makes even Air Canada look good. (Full disclosure: I have it in for AC because they lost my luggage on the way to Finland in 2007.) Plane seats were narrow and my leg cramped up at one point, even though I was ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel La Perle Paris
Stay at le perle
I have been to paris numerous times and love the st. germain area. we decided to stay here based on the reviews and price. This hotel is very clean and on a great quiet street - we had a room over looking the courtyard, so we didn't hear any noise. The bed is comfortable with nice linens (duvet with a cover that gets changed with the sheets). The bathroom is also modern. I would stay here again as the location is ideal!
La Perle is a Gem
We came to La Perle after a horrible experience at another Paris hotel. We visited Paris during a 98-degree F heat wave and our first hotel (on Ste. Germain) claimed to have AC, but it gave no relief. Hot, tired and cranky, we happened to walk by La Perle and stopped in to see if the claim by our first hotel - that AC in Paris only lowers the temp by 6 degrees - was true. It was a God-send. La Perle was cool, comfortable and welcoming. The staff is top-rate and the facilities are solid. Clean, comfortable and cool and a good location to boot. It's located on a quieter street, close to the action of Ste. Germain but it feels more like a small town. Great restaurants close by and coffee offered in the hotel restaurant before Paris cafe open. Ideal.
Great Staff & Location but Overpriced
I normally stay at the La Madison located around the corner on St. Germain Blvd. but with no vacancies I had to look else where. The Hotel La Perle staff was great and extremely pleasant. Room was a little outdated and the A/C did not function adequately during the heat of the day. Room rate was much higher than the Madison $220.00 U.S. dollar.
We could not have asked for a better location as it was very central. Being right in the heart of many bars and restaurants it was just perfect. We had a standard room on the third floor which was the smallest one on our floor (no. 39), however, it was very clean and comfortable, with a bath and a good shower and had everything we needed - including a fridge and air conditioning which was very welcome as the temperature was 33C outside. (no.37 appears to be the biggest room of what looks to be the standard sized rooms, but may not be a standard room?). No.s 31 and 32 on the plan were very large rooms by comparison and would appear to be Superior or Superior Plus. We did not compare this floor to other floors though.
As breakfast is an extra 13 euros per person per night, we went to the local baker (a minute's walk away). We did however try the breakfast in the hotel on the Sunday, and (not wishing to sound too negative as everything else was brilliant) would say that its slightly poor value for money really. There was not a huge choice, a few baby coissants, slices of bread, small rolls, cereals, jam, salami, ham and cheese, and a bowl of fruit. But it filled the hole!
All in all, we would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Paris. For those who like an earlier, quieter evening, it may be worth asking for a room at the back, as you do hear the 'buzz' of people in the narrow street - but it was nothing disturbing. We would DEFINITELY stay here again.
I must say that after having stayed at Hotel La Perle I am never going to stay in another hotel in Paris as these guys are the best!!!
Small, tiny 38-bedroom hotel hidden in the best area in Paris, what could be better than that?
Location is fantastic, price is justified thanks to the outstanding service they provide...
One evening, we were tired after having walked all day(go figure) and didn't really feel like going out to eat, then Andreas (the manager) offered to bring us the food on site!!!! He gave us a menu from the restaurant across the road, we chose our meals and he set up a table for me and my wife on their terrasse, super nice!!!
We had the best evening, quiet surrounding, no smoke - just perfect. As for the rest of the team, they are truly outstanding, there is nothing they will not do for you - a real 5 star service!!!!!
Whoever the owner may be, he has deninitely the winning formula for a very high class hotel!
To everybody reading this - don't go there, this is OUR Pearl!
AWESOME stay in chic St. Germain des Pres
La Perle is an amazing hotel tucked on a charming rue in the 6th. We stayed in a standard room, which was larger than I was expecting given all of the previous reviews I'd read about Paris hotels. It is so beautifully renovated that I had to double check to be sure it was 17th century. The beds were very comfortable, firm base with a feather top...just perfect after endless days on our feet. The a/c worked, the mini-bar/fridge was a plus, the bathrooms were fabulous...better hot water than my home!
The staff was also great. Absolutely welcoming, helpful and charming. They spoke perfect English, and never made us feel guilty or silly when we'd greet them incorrectly.
The neighborhood, well, it's the best. Our goal was to see as many neighborhoods as we could, which we dutifully accomplished. The shops are beautiful, the parks and churches great, and the restaurants NEVER disappointed. We always considered having dinner somewhere else, even sat down in several places and ultimately decided to return to our cozy quarters and pop into one of the many choices right out the door. And they were loaded with friendly locals.
We will definitely be back!
Enjoyed Hotel La Perle
We just returned from an excellent weekend in Paris and the Hotel La Perle.
I must say I was a bit concerned with the small number of comments here (not to mention the suspicious similarity between two of those reviews...), so I wasn't sure what to expect. However, mostly everything turned out for the best. True, the price is outrageous (for someone not living in Euroland, that is) and the standard room is tiny, but that's Paris, apparently. Other then that, the location is excellent, the rooms facing the back are very quiet, everything is new and clean, and the bathroom is definitely four star level. The staff, while not overly friendly, is courteous and available when needed.
As with many other similar hotels, the best value is probably the superior room, which costs 15% more but is large enough so that tripping over the luggage can be avoided.
To conclude, looks like a very good left bank choice.
A Little Gem of A Hotel
We stayed at the la Perle Hotel over the New years weekend, and it was perfect. It is hidden away on a small street, but we were able to walk to wonderful restaurants and cafes. The staff were very friendly.
We booked superior rooms which were spacious with large bathrooms.
The hotel is very quiet and a welcome haven when returning form a busy day.
Great hotel. In the best location in Paris, it is right on the doorstep(literally) of very chic shops, cafes, restaurants, parks and churches. Very clean!!! Beautiful, modern, cozy. Only negative thing: standard rooms are kind of small.
La Perle is a jewel
Hotel La Perle is an excellent find in the heart of this city. Clean, modern and very friendly it is right on the doorstep(literally) of shops, cafes, restaurants, parks and churches, so something for everyone and when you're worn out it's a very quick nip back for some quiet relaxation.
