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.”

  • 19/01/2020 The staff was exceptional. From the reception staff, to the concierge that we dealt with on to the service staff in the restaurant and bar were all very friendly and extremely attentive. The service at breakfast was wonderful, in particular the waitress that took care of us. We very much enjoyed our stay.
  • 17/01/2020 A wonderfully stylish, character-rich hotel. Outstanding staff and wonderful breakfast and bar service. A gem!
  • 12/01/2020 Such a wonderful 'oasis' in the centre of Paris. Bar snacks were exceptional, as was the breakfast quality. Staff could not have been more helpful. Please note that we booked through ccuk, who could perhaps remind their members of the 'linkage'
  • 03/01/2020 The entire experience was stellar. We were spending our first holiday after the loss of my father and the staff and property brought nothing but joy. We had a day where we just wanted to stay at the property and read, and it was the perfect place to do that. From the beautiful accommodations that had so much character to the kindness of the staff to the incredible food, I would come back to the property in a minute and stay as long as I can. When asked about the highlight of the trip, it is the first thought that comes to mind. I had just spent a few days at the Peninsula in Chicago, and this was far and away a superior experience.
