Hotel Saint Christophe
Travel Blogs from Paris
Surfaced at 9 bells after a semi-early night. Think we were all pretty KO'd after the 640 miles of driving yesterday. The first sober day of Crumball should be a good laugh tho... Breakfast in hostel at 9:00 (banana, cereals and bread with ham and cheeses). Got room sorted as I'd failed to book this one (apparently) and then left for a walk. Good …
Days 5, 6, & 7- Paris
So, I'm leaving Paris in a couple days, and I’m sort of sad about it! I really have come to love this city!
When I first got here, I was completely disoriented and a little bitter. Exhausted from my long night out in Soho, I hopped on the train from London St. Pancras station. The train ride wasn …
Took very long train ride during the day to reach Paris by 7PM. Saw the Louve, Mona Lisa, in uncrowed conditions and the Iffel Tower.
Paris (cont.) On contiuation of yesterday afternoon, I soon realised that my French friend had become a little too stalker-ish. I saw him waiting downstairs in the bar. Freaking out slightly, I returned to my room and introduced myself to one of the dorm-buddies. An Australian from Sydney called Daniel. He's a chef who works in London, and is on a …
The first day we got in Paris, we put all of our **** in the room...we were happy to see that we had little cubby holes to sleep in!!! The room was lined with the 6 beds and we had curtains to close over each bed which was quite pointless because they were red and when you turned the lights on, it looked like the sun was out!! It would have been a …

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.
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.
