The Top Left Bank Hotels – In The Heart Of Saint-Germain-des-Prés

Since Hemingway and the Jazz Age, the Left Bank — St-Germain-des-Prés — has defined the essence of Paris. Staying in this quartier means wandering among trendy shops, famous cafés, the river Seine, and Jardin du Luxembourg — all just minutes from the best Left Bank hotels.

While The Left Bank includes everything on the south side of the Seine — including the Eiffel Tower, the Latin Quarter and the 13th, 14th and 15th Arrondissements — this collection focuses on the most highly-rated boutique hotels in the 6th Arrondissement and St-Germain-des Prés, the heart of the Left Bank. You may never find reason to cross the river!

Hotel d'Aubusson

Hotel Aubusson

Set on Rue Dauphine, which leads directly to the Seine, where you can cross Pont Neuf to île de la Cité (it's a 3-minute walk), Hotel d'Aubusson is the highest-rated boutique hotel in the 6th Arrondissement.

Built in the 17th century as a private mansion, Aubusson retains the period charm, with oak beams, giant fireplaces, and antique furniture. The rooms are charming, well-maintained, and equipped to modern comfort standards. We also love the public areas like the lobby and the bar with its curved zinc counter, not to mention the swimming pool, a rarity on the Left Bank.

Hotel Baume

Hotel Baume

If you're interested in a modern hotel with a historic design sensibility, we can recommend Le Baume. The hotel has been completely re-done with an interior design inspired by the 1930s and the fashion, films, and Art Deco of the period. Harking back to that era, the rooms are filled with textured silk, satins, and exotic woods.

In addition to the stunning design, the hotel has all the modern conveniences, and guests rave about the staff, saying, "A gem in Paris!!!" — "Missed it the moment we left!" — "Perfect boutique hotel and location."

Hotel d'Orsay – Esprit de France

Hotel d'Orsay

From the luxe, high-design group Esprit de France comes this classic hotel just a few doors from Musée d'Orsay. almost literally on the Left Bank. Warm neutral colors are highlighted with pops of brighter tones and the whole space oozes Parisien charme. The standard rooms are are perfect, but we like the large Superior Rooms even more, and there is air-conditioning throughout. The Seine River and the pedestrian bridge that leads to Jardin des Tuileries are just two minutes away.

First of all, the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating.The bed was very comfortable and the room spacious and very clean. The curtains were heavy enough to keep the light out so we could sleep in if we wanted to without being disturbed. The location is prime as it is 5 minutes to Musée d'Orsay and about 10 minutes to the Louvre and 15 to Notre Dame. Overall, it was a wonderful experience to stay at Hotel d'Orsay. Thank you!"

Millésime Hotel

Millesime Hotel

One of our newest fave hotels on the Left Bank, and in the heart of Saint-Germain, Millésime Hotel is not just about comfort, design, and service, it's also about the perfect location. On a quiet street in Saint-Germain you have the famous church and the Boulevard Saint-Germain in one direction (3 minutes), and the Louvre in the other direction (11 minutes), just across the river. Highly recommended by us.

Hotel Da Vinci & Spa

Hotel Da Vinci

Equally charming and well-appointed, Hotel Da Vinci is found on Rue des Saints-Pères, just across the river from the Louvre and in the very heart of Left Bank life. It's a great place for walking access to everything you want to see, including Musée d'Orsay, only 10 minutes away.

Unusually for a boutique hotel in central Paris, the hotel has an indoor pool. There's also a stunning courtyard patio, but we really like the comfortable rooms and the great service.

Hotel Le Six

Hotel Le Six

It's not just us who like this hip, modern hotel, travelers rave about Le 6. Travelers love the friendly staff, the bright decor, and the location.

Le 6 is close to the historic brasseries of Montmartre like Le Dome, La Coupole and La Closerie des Lilas (a Hemingway favorite). The hotel design is sleek and inviting and Le 6 also boasts a full-service, in-house spa.

Villa d'Estrées

With 10 beautiful rooms, the hotel is all warm tones and Empire-style furniture. Travelers rave about the location. You're in the hub of the 6th Arrondissement, close to the Metro, surrounded by bistros, Notre Dame (just across the river), and the pedestrian street Saint Andre des Art. Villa d'Estrées also scores one of our highest ratings.

L'Hotel – For a Romantic Experience

L'Hotel

The only accommodation in Paris called simply L'Hotel, here you'll find a temple to opulence. Leave the hotel, turn left and you're in the heart of Saint-Germain, turn right it's the Louvre. In the hotel's cave (basement), you'll find a perpetual-wave pool and mosaic steam room. L'Hotel is perhaps most famous as being Oscar Wilde's last home and the place he died on November 30, 1900.

Our Rating — Superb

A great position from which to explore Paris on foot — and the most excellent service and helpful, pleasant staff on hand when we returned exhausted at the end of a long day. A very elegant bar, beautifully decorated. Quiet room with small but perfectly formed bathroom, very comfortable bed, and enough room for all our bits and pieces. Not a sound at night, either from within the hotel, or from outside. (We had room 34 which overlooks the internal courtyard). Expensive, but at least you get what you pay for!"

Hotel Relais Saint-Germain

Hotel Relais Saint-Germain

In the early 1990s Chef Yves Camdeborde rocked the Paris restaurant scene by moving way out to the 14th Arrondissement to open restaurant La Régalade. The rest is the stuff of culinary history, as other young chefs also moved to the outskirts of Paris to open what would become iconic restaurants that offered gourmet meals at bargain-basement prices.

Fast forward to a decade ago when Yves sold La Régalade and, with his wife Claudine, purchased and renovated a charming hotel just off Boulevard St-Germain and in the center of Left bank life.

Like other area hotels we recommend, Relais Saint-Germain is built in a 17th century mansion that retains its historic character while being filled with modern convenience. And, if you're still hungry for Yves' food, his new restaurant, Le Comptoir, is just downstairs.

Our Rating — Superb

Amazing property in the perfect location to walk all over Paris. Wonderful staff, clean, spacious rooms, well appointed and maintained. Memorable breakfast every morning, and you also can't go wrong with any of the adjacent restaurants owned by the chef owner of the hotel. This place is a true gem and delight. Paris perfection!"
