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.”

  • 01/11/2019 We stayed two nights in this hotel and found it to be full of character and charm in a location that was quiet and yet very convenient for exploring Paris by day and by night. The front desk staff were excellent and the room was spacious and eclectic. We have recommended this hotel to others At the Savoy in London which was our next destination. We will return to this hotel again.
  • 30/10/2019 The Staff called us by name and took care of us in every way. Kevin in the bar gave us coffee when we arrived early after a long international flight. From that moment, we felt like we were at home.
  • 24/10/2019 This is the second time I have stayed with the Saint James and though I would not have imagined it possible after my first stay, my second stay was even better. My first visit was as a solo traveler and this second time was as a couple and it was incredibly romantic. In fact, I thought to myself that if I were return, it must be with someone I love because it's a place worth sharing. The staff is very attentive without being intrusive, they accommodated each personal request I made. The rooms are unique and luxurious without being fussy. I have a great affection for the library bar and could spend hours and hours in its cozy embrace. Walking into the lobby is a thrill every time.
  • 19/10/2019 I found my hotel in Paris, Saint James Paris! The service was amazing! The decor & relaxation of the hotel was memorable. I appreciated how everyone made my wife & I feel like we were part of the family, as we would come & go from our hotel , ensuring we were getting to our destination safely & had a good time. No one at the hotel made us feel like we asked too many questions. We visited other hotels to compare, and one could easily tell the difference in service at Saint James Paris. Being away from home in a different country can make anyone a little nervous; however, not if they stay at Saint James Paris. When we come back to Paris, this is the only hotel we will stay.
