The Experience

The hotel

Every tiny detail of Bambi Sloan’s eccentric yet elegant interior design attracts the eye. Here, classicism, elegance and downright daring live side by side.

In the kitchen, the Chef Adrien Brunet invites you to discover his exquisite creations. The striking former Thiers Foundation library now hosts our head bartender, whose herb-based cocktails are a crowd-favourite. Intellectual exploits and deep conversations still abound there. Your well-being and beauty treatments are in able hands at the Guerlain spa. For relaxation, head for the Saint James’ lush private garden. Whilst alongside the hotel’s 49 rooms and suites, designed to provoke the sweetest of dreams, the building also houses the exclusive Saint James Club.

“The Saint James Paris is much more than an exclusive luxury hotel – it’s an experience. “




The Saint James’s majestic neoclassical façade can be deceiving. Step inside, and you’re now surrounded by the elegant madness of Bambi Sloan. Like in a dream, this unimaginable mix of styles turns temporal and spatial markers on their heads. Here, the Second Empire meets virtually every other decorative period, with inspiration coming from everywhere, while its crowning glory, “Chandelier Chaos”, soars 14 metres overhead.

“Spiritual and striking. The stage is set.”

  • 17/03/2019 We stayed at the Saint James for 6 nights to celebrate my partner's 50th birthday. Everything about the property is fantastic, it's a hidden gem in Paris. We had a dinner party in the Club Room that was truly memorable. As great as the property is, the staff is better: Gael and Simon in the bar, Florence helping to plan my special event, Max at the concierge desk (I wasn't feeling well after a too-big dinner at Epicure and he brought up herb tea to the room without our asking) Everyone with whom we interacted was kind and friendly. We won't forget these folks, they made our stay extra special, and we look forward to seeing them again!
