Stay at the Relais Christine
Imagine sitting in a magnolia scented courtyard, cocktail in hand. You notice French chatter around you, such is the clientele of this hotel that stretches far beyond tourists.Welcome to the Relais Christine, a hidden gem in the heart of trendy Saint-Germain-de-Pres. You’re off the beaten track but still close by to Paris’s best sights. Low-key, neighbourhood vibes abound whilst the service and decor remind you that this is still a top-notch hotel.
You’ll find the Relais Christine hotel tucked away in a quiet street in the Saint-Germain-de-Pres, Paris’ art district. The Seine is just moments away and the streets nearby are packed with galleries, bars and restaurants. The 6th arrondissement feels much more low key than the famous first over the river, and it's all the more charming for it.
Considering there are only 48 of them, the hotel boasts a large range of rooms. They range from cozy rooms better suited for one person, to high ceilinged doubles, to unusual duplexes where the bed is on a mezzanine. All scream comfort and are decorated in a classic Parisian style with plenty of taupe, red, gold and teal.
Who is it for
