Nestled into the popular and touristy street of the same name, the one-star Hotel St-André-des-Arts is a romantic daydream of a hotel. It’s a creaky and inviting place, devoid of most modern conveniences, but brimming over with charm.

Pros: Charming, antiquated feel. Spacious rooms. Breakfast included.

Cons: Mostly unrenovated. Neighborhood can be noisy. No elevator.

Review

Stepping into the wood-beamed reception from the Rue-St.-Andre-des-Arts, you’ll quickly realize that you’re in a small and family-run guest house. In fact, you’ll probably be greeted by friendly husband-and-wife proprietors, Henri and Odile Le Goubin. They've been running the Hotel St-André-des-Arts for years, making it a happy home base for travelers (including lots of artists and academic types) who crave something different.

The hotel’s 31 guest rooms are old-fashioned and, for the most part, unrenovated. Most are spacious (for Paris) and several doubles can be re-engineered to fit three or even four guests comfortably. (This makes the hotel a solid bet for families.) Rooms on lower floors have especially high ceilings.

Almost every room boasts some detail to remind you of the building’s late 16th-century construction, be it wooden beams or stone walls. Rooms sport simple red or green carpets and furniture that ranges from antique to flea-market functional. Notably, rooms do not have a TV, although Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel.

All rooms at the Hotel St-André-des-Arts have a private bath, each equipped with either a tub or shower, and a hairdryer. Some baths were renovated a few years back with attractive olive tiling and modern fixtures, although unrenovated bathrooms are perfectly fine.

Two-thirds of the hotel’s rooms look out onto either the rue St-André-des-Arts or to a side street. Double-paned windows should keep things quiet when closed, but light sleepers should ask for a room on a higher floor or facing the back. Keep in mind that windows may be open during the summer (pack earplugs accordingly, as this neighborhood has its share of cafés and bars).

Note that the hotel does not have an elevator. If you’re not afraid to climb, ask for a room on a higher floor where you can avoid street noise and take in some great neighborhood views. (Room #34 was the most interesting room we saw, tucked under the roof with a sloping ceiling and a tiny hallway linking it to its funky-shaped bathroom.)

Breakfast is included in the room rate (which is unusual for hotels in Paris). To reserve, email or call the hotel directly.

About the Hotel Saint-André-des-Arts neighborhood

Just west of the Latin Quarter in the direction of the Eiffel Tower, St. Germain des Prés is flanked by two Parisian gems—the Luxembourg Gardens to the south and the banks of the Seine to the north. The iconic neighborhood borrows its name from the church of St. Germain des Prés. It is defined by the boulevard of the same name, which slices through the quarter’s winding streets.
