Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Saint Christophe Paris
Lovely little hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Great location - close to a Metro stop and walkable to Notre Dame, Pantheon and Jardin Des Plantes. Rue Mouuffetard is very touristy, but there are some good restaurants and bars there. For a quality meal go to the 'Burning Bush' or Le Buisson Ardent (25 Rue Jussieu) - might need to book though!
The hotel was very clean, bathroom was perfect. We were on the groundfloor, a little noisy in the mornings but if you're an early riser (unlike me) this should be no problem. Breakfast was big and ideal. The hotel is a perfect location just beside a metro station.
What more can you ask for???
Saint Christophe great place
Excellent hotel, nice people at the front desk, helpful, good location, good price.
Hotel Saint Christophe-a great find!!
We stayed at Hotel Saint Christophe this weekend(11/03) and thought it was really lovely. The staff were very helpful and the rooms were really cute. We also had a really nice little balcony. The location couldn't have been better-we were a five minute walk to the Notre Dame and great restaurants up on the hill. We will DEFINATELY stay here again!!
Great for the price!
I have stayed in many Paris hotels and this one was above average for the price. I would definitely return. The bed was comfortable with good quality linens and pillows. The room was clean and the bathroom was nice, and had a shower curtain! (A Paris rarity!) The staff was extremely friendly and spoke English. The only possible downside to this hotel was location. The immediate surroundings didn't have quite as many quaint restaurants and shops as in the more touristy areas of St. Germain. To some that may be viewed as a bonus, since it was definitely quieter than many places I've stayed. You do have easy access to the 7 and 10 metro lines, so it is easy to get to the more happening spots quickly. Overall a good experience and I'd recommend this hotel a lot.
My wife and I recently stayed a week in Paris (October 2003) and Hotel Saint Christophe was an excellent basecamp for our exploration. The rooms were comfortable and breakfast adequate, but there are very few places this close to the center of the city for the price. The hotel staff was excellent and always helpful. Make sure you take the time to walk through the Jardin des Plantes on your way to the RER (at least once. The Metro is closer though). We look forward to coming back to Paris and staying here.
We stayed at the Saint Christophe in September, and we enjoyed ourselves.
Our room was sweet, with a window overlooking the side street. While it was small, that's par for the course, and there was definitely enough room (bed, desk, closet, suitcases). After all, you don't want to hang out in your room in Paris anyway!
The bathroom was *terrific*!! Very clean, a good size (not doing feats of acrobatics to move around), a good shower, a pretty window, marble & new-looking ceramic. Excellent!!
The staff were all friendly and helpful. Our last morning was hectic, trying to get a last-minute cab to the airport, and the fellow at the desk was a tremendous help and really came through for us!
The negatives: The breakfast was...not terribly exciting. (The coffee was not very good, I'm sorry to report.) For both quality and selection, you're better off getting breakfast at one of the nearby places on Rue Monge or somewhere. (There's a pastry shop right across the street, btw!)
The only bad thing was that our room smelled a bit funky, like the carpet needed to be cleaned. I had some Febreeze with me (a travel must!), but it didn't do the trick 100%.
Apart from this, however, we thought the room was great and the location was very nice. Pretty quiet, but definitely within walking distance to everything. It's very good value for the rate!
Great Staff-Great Bathtubs
During a bitterly cold, snowy 10 days in Paris it was so nice to come back late in the afternoon to such a gracious "home". The staff was helpful and creative; rooms average size, bathrooms wonderful. We had a special price of $100.00 including breakfast. Block away from Rue Mouffetard.
Nice place to stay
A nice small hotel. My room was quite large for a single in Europe. Nicely decorated. Good sized bathroom with nice big tub. Clean and well maintained. Friendly English speaking staff. Much nicer than what I got for more money in London.
Walking distance to 2 metro stops. Not particularly close to any tourist sights, but that makes the neighborhood less crowded. Can walk to the Pantheon, or it's a longish walk to Notre Dame. Many bakeries, grocery and other shops nearby. Just down the street from the Jardin des Plantes, good for a nice walk to see the flowers. There is a market in the Place Monge (once a week I think). As a single woman, I felt safe in the neighborhood.
syayed at the hotel st christophe, around the corner from place monge, great place to walk around, restaurants on the rue mouftard are great, especially the cafe verlaine. great cd shop there. 3 cds for ten bucks. got some great old french recordings.

... the French were going to take back Paris he decided if he couldn't have it no one could. He ordered his general to burn it to the ground & set explosives all around. The explosive under the tower meant the tower would block the road when it fell. However for some reason the general never hit the button & Paris didn't burn. The romantic idea the French have is that he had fallen in love with the city. More realistically he wanted to save his own skin. It went in his ...
... to see the expanse of Paris. It's much bigger when you look at it from up here. The air was colder but it felt nice after all those steps. Then we had to buy a ticket to take the lift up I the third level and the longest journey yet. I definitely didn't like being in the small elevator so high up in the air but it ended soon enough. The view from up here was ok, certainly higher than the second level but hard to make out much of anything. And the saddest part was ...
... Latin quarter to Notre Dame. The place were Paris started. Burried in the beautiful block street is a gold disk that many believe if you touch it will bring good luck. Of course we touched it!
We topped off the night with gelato and the boys ate crepes filled with Nutella and bananas. More walking and catching the metro. We reaches our hotel at 10:30 pm...so happy to be here. A good day in Paris. Bonnie unit! (Good night)

... in the monastery and the peasantry that lived below.
They certainly did live in style these Bishops, their private quarters have rooms that are beautifully wood panelled with pink marble archways and entrances, with ceiling sthat are studded to give the effect of the evening sky. There was an exhibit of weapons and armour from the 12th century onward, much similar to what they’d seen elsewhere. A great deal of time was spent here ...
... do the dishes ha, After more adventures getting lost in the louvre seeing more amazing marble sculptures we intended to head for the sewers tour or then museum of inventions but decided to do the tourist thing and jump on a red bus. This wasn't so bad as we had walked most of the areas and had a few of our favourite spots picked out. We already had made memories of places we had been to so the trip meant so much ...
