S and I leave for Normandy tomorrow and are unsure when we'll have Internet again so here I go, on the iPod touch...for now I'll just kind of list what we've done.
Totally forgot all my french. Guess I better take it off my resume. Being semi-fluent 6 years ago means nothing now. Have put together a few sentences but overall feel …
... breakfast tray laid out for us. Again, my uncle had prepared for us a bowl of warm hot chocolate, soft boiled eggs (we’ll get to that later) little toasty breads called croustine with a choice of butter or guava jam, and a baguette for breakfast. We couldn’t resist so we sat down. We ate everything with no problem, but then we got to the eggs. On the outside, they look like what we’re used to, hard boiled eggs. But Jean had given us egg shaped cups ...

Well given the dreary weather, lack of time and extremely high cost of wine tours from Paris, we aren't going to be able to do one at this stage. So tonight, we did the next best thing and went to a wine tasting bar in Paris called O'Chateau. Here, you could enjoy wine and food tasting from all over France. We ...

Next was Boulevard St Germain. I came with the sole intention of seeing the Diptyque store (of course I know the address as 34 without even looking it up, I'm that much of a 34/Volutes junkie). After spending 15 minutes walking in the ...

my favourite supermarket experience yet, where we aimed to spend all our Swiss francs on chocolate. We had about 15 left, and walked out with only 45cents remaining. Not a bad effort, and a lot of chocolate as well, win-win!
The 29th signalled our return back to France, and we took the TGV much to Dad’s delight. He certainly enjoyed the fast train experience (particularly due to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel SAINT-JACQUES Paris
Loved the Hotel St. Jacques!
We stayed at the Hotel St. Jacques during our first trip to Paris in Jan 2004. My husband and I wanted something affordable, clean and spacious, but also with French charm. A private bathroom was a must! We found all these things at the Hotel St. Jacques. We even had a tiny balcony with two sets of French doors off our room. Spring for the spacious double room, since it is still a great price. The location in the Latin Quarter was great, near Norte Dame, the Seine, cafes, the Metro, etc. If you are looking for a great bargain, the Hotel St.
Jacques is a true find. Also the staff was very helpful and friendly.
We didn't want to leave!
Hotel St Jacques was in a great central location. The staff was helpful and friendly. Our room was very, very worn out. I heard other rooms had been renovated..so ask for one of those. Also, make sure your reservation requests a room above the first floor of rooms. We had a lot of street noise being too close to the street. All that said, I would go back to this hotel due to it's location and price.
Halloween in Paris
This is a very nice hotel in wonderful surroundings. I like Paris and in particular St. Germain des Pres. Hotel St. Jacques is right in the middle of this beautiful area. There are many great restaurants and bistros in the area. The rates at the hotel are very reasonable considering the typical prices in Paris. Your travel dollar will be best served here.
Great and Reasonable
Very clean and comfortable. The rates are reasonable and the people are very friendly and helpful who work there.
Best Little Hotel in Paris!!
I stayed at Hotel St. Jacques in May 2002 for my 50th birthday. It was my first visit to Paris and being a woman travelling alone this was the best place to stay-very French. The hotel staff took very good care of me-they are the BEST. They even decided what I should do to celebrate my birthday. The room was fabulous, the French windows (I didn't mind the street noise-it was comforting), the bathroom was quite large.
Location was perfect, I felt totally safe. Close to metro and wonderful restaurants. I will always stay at Hotel St. Jacques when in Paris.
Adored Hotel St Jacques Paris.
We stayed 5 days at Hotel St Jacques, -a charming hotel in a great location. Lovely rooms with great bathroom. Also wonderful breakfasts.
Friendly staff. Would stay here again when next in Paris.
We stayed at the hotel in June 2003 on the last 3 nights of our honeymoon. It was a great little hotel. Located only a 10 minute walk from Notre Dame cathedral and 20 minutes from the Louvre. Restaurants abound and a subway stop is nearby. The hotel staff was amazing. They all spoke english and were very friendly and helpful in arranging guided tours and airport transfers. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated and the bathroom big/modern. The only (minor) drawback was lack of air conditioning. Large windows allowed for adequate airflow but also let in some street noise. We were there before the summer heatwave and had no problems. It would probably be uncomfortable in the middle of the summer. Even so, I would highly recommend this charming little hotel and would definetly stay there again. Rates were quite reasonable too and internet access is available for a small charge.
Very charming dignified little hotel in Paris
My boyfriend and I were in Paris for 2 weeks and we stayed at several different hotels (because we wanted to stay at different areas of the city)...and we found this hotel to be the best one for the price range that we were prepared to spend.
The staff were very warm and friendly...the hotel is in a very good location (within easy walking distance to everything)...and the room was very charming and we had a great view.
The next time we come back...this is where we're going to stay.
My boyfriend and I stayed there in August 2001. It was everything you'd expect from a quaint classically Parisian hotel. The room was beautifully decorated with a mural on the ceiling. the terrace was lovely and opened up to a view of the Latin Quarter. The location is convenient to everything --basically in the heart of Paris --the Metro is about a block down the street. The staff was friendly and accomodating. The bathroom was spacious and very new (and clean)and it had a hair dryer--I recommend paying extra for the bathroom. There was also a safe inside the armoire. We would love to stay there again!
We stayed at the St. Jacques in May of 2000, on our honeymoon. It was a last-minute find, because another hotel lost our reservation. We lucked out, because it was classically Parisian, with beautiful rooms, clean bathrooms, and extremely friendly staff. The rates were very reasonable. We'll definitely stay there again!
