It is located between the districts of Le Marais and Saint-Germain, of course close to Notre Dame Cathedral and the Place de la Bastille. Its exceptional location in this haven of peace will make you feel surrounded by a prestigious history and the many mansions that you will find in its streets.
Why we like the Hotel Saint-Louis in L’Isle?
- The location is a 10: Île Saint-Louis is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods to walk in Paris ; it is also much smaller and more welcoming than its neighbor Île de la Cité.
- Keep in mind that the area has not changed as much as other places in the capital in recent centuries, preserving part of its atmosphere and architecture.
- Breakfast (included depending on the option you reserve) is highly valued: it has a wide variety of cereal drinks, fresh fruits, exquisite French cheeses and of course delicious croissants.

What we like most about the Hotel & Spa Saint-Jacques is its romantic atmosphere, very 19th century with murals, details and period stairs . It has 35 rooms, several of them with views of the Pantheon and Notre Dame Cathedral.
