Hotel Saint James Paris
Paris is made of numerous dreams, and Saint James is undoubtedly one of them. Built in a 19th century chateau, this hotel has glamorous details that define perfection. It was the best experience I've had in Paris.
From the moment we stepped into the hotel, the friendly staff welcomed us warmly and made our stay perfect. The front desk introduced the rich history of the hotel to us. Interestingly, on the very same location, it used to be the first aerodrome in Paris, where hot air balloons came to land. The theme of hot air balloons is embodied in all the details throughout the entire building, from the staircase to the chandeliers, how lovely! The warm, inviting environment made us feel like coming home.
We dined at the hotel restaurant where it showcases its exquisite French cuisine. The innovative flavors and artistic displays gave such a unique touch to the table. What could be better than taking the slow French pace and relaxing at the end of the day in this beautiful room? The lavishing dining area elevated our whole experience to the next level.
Saint James Paris is definitely the highlight of our trip to Paris. I can't wait to come back in the future.
