Tucked away on a tranquil street in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the two-star Hotel Saint-Thomas d’Aquin isn’t exactly cheap, but it fits our definition of a heavenly splurge, with a divine location near the Seine, Musée d’Orsay, Louvre.

Pros: Short walk to major museums. Stylish furnishings. Amiable staff. Free Wi-Fi.

Cons: Can be fairly pricey.

Review

The boutique Saint-Thomas d’Aquin is housed in a former palatial residence left over from the city’s quaint and quirky pre-Haussmann days and mixes classic French and chic décor. The setting, with its subtle architectural traces from days gone by, will definitely resonate with those who demand a bit of style with their beds.

The hotel’s 21 rooms all offer built-in closets, free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen television and safe box. For the love of natural light and a room with a view, request one of the 16 rooms that look out on the narrow street (the windows are soundproof). Note that the rooms are not air conditioned, but fans are provided.

The bathrooms are uber-modern and sparkling, but they’re on the small side. Several have bathtubs (request ahead).

Original artwork lines the walls in the reading lounge and adjoining dining room, where the hotel offers breakfast for €11 and an “express” option for €6. The friendly staff here also adds to the romantic, friendly feel, throwing in small personal touches (like handwritten notes) for good measure.

Note that the exterior of the Hotel Saint-Thomas d’Aquin is not indicated by typical hotel signage, but instead is marked by a planting of trees (along with hedges and plants). It’s a wry nod to Saint Thomas (patron saint of booksellers) since the famed levitator died at an early age by tripping over a tree. (Watch your step!)

About the Saint Thomas d'Aquin 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.
