Lovely Hotel in St-Germain-des-Pres

by written on August 2, 2007

I came across this hotel as it is the sister to Hotel Therese. It is different from Therese as it is not modern- but decorated like someone's home. It only has 26 rooms- but all have a safe and wi-fi. The location is wonderful. It has an elevator- but you will have to climb up some stairs to get to it.

Unique Quality: Rooms may be a little smaller than you'd hoped for, but each is painstakingly decorated. The white-cotton quilts on the beds, framed pressed flowers on the walls. The hall and lobby are decorated with faux-marble trompe-l'oeil trim work and stained-glass windows. Fans of Serge Gainsbourg can pilgrimage to his former home directly across the street. Only some of the rooms have AC.

The rates are very reasonable:

Single 136€ ($165 US) double bed, bathroom
Double or twin 163€ ($198 US) double bed or two beds, bathroom
Double Deluxe 210€ ($256 US) double bed, bathroom

Directions: 7th Arr. St. Germain de Pres. Serge Gainsbourg's former home is directly across the street. Near the Musee D'Orsay metro stop.

Le Verneuil: 2005 Update

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 16, 2005

UPDATED VISIT ON JAN. 1ST, 2005: This has been my second visit to the Verneuil within a space of 11 months. Everything is the same except the work that was begun on the salon has been completed and it's now very cosy and beautiful.

My dlx. double room (#302) could have been larger than what I expected as per the T&L writeup. It's not so large as #402 in my opinion. Got the scoop from Joseph, the night manager. The T&L author saw one room when he dropped in unannounced and it was room #302. He then wrote the T&L article saying that #302 was the best room. That's why many guests request it. Truth is that all deluxe doubles (usually ending in #02) are pretty much the same size. The top floor dlx. double room #502 has two large windows so this is good during wintertime to get more light. Staff favorite rooms are either #402 or #502.

The owner redecorates continuously so any published room photos may not look the same again.

Unique Quality: Based on Travel & Leisure's 2000 article the author claimed that room #302 is the largest room in the hotel. According to the night manager, the T&L author, chose room #302 to photograph as there was no other room opened at the time of his visit. In fact, he, unannounced to the staff, went to room #302 as the maid had it opened for cleaning.

So all the deluxe double rooms are the same size. I would say that room #402 is a staff favorite due to its pink color scheme and the ginger jar in the lighted cabinet. However, the most favorite room is room #502, the top floor room, as it has two windows.

Hotel Verneuil: No cookie cutter hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 3, 2004

Review of Feb. 2004:

The small, 26-room Hotel Verneuil is my personal discovery although it's been known to a very discerning few.

I'd read the review in Travel & Leisure (in 2000) and decided it was time to see for myself last February.

My room, a std. double (room #401), was very small yet charming with a desk and chair included. The bathroom was all beige marble, large, and had a wall shower/tub combination with a shower screen. My aunt's room (room #402), a deluxe double, was much larger and with a canopy bed, same large marble bathroom but with two bathrobes included.

Has a normal hairdryer

Breakfast which we chose to take there was a buffet continental with the typical croissants, baguettes, pain au chocolats, fresh fruit salad, juice, cereal, and coffee and tea.

Caveat: The elevator is one flight upstairs from the ground floor.

Some rooms have a/c (usually the standard and deluxe rooms-ask the hotel)

2006/2007 Update: Room #402 is pictured in the book, 'Hip Hotels Paris', by Herbert Ypma.

Unique Quality: The hotel's located on extremely quiet rue de Verneuil which is off of rue des Sts. Peres which is quite busy.

Rooms have beamed ceilings due to this being an old building.

Nice surprise: The manager must believe in the power of chocolates! My aunt & I were there over Valentine's Day weekend so we came back from dinner to find a box of chocolates on our pillows. I learned from a travel acquaintance who stayed there at on a different occasion that she & her husband were given chocolates too.

Uniqueness: The hotel is directly across the street from Serge Gainsbourg's home. Therefore, one notices alot of graffitti covering the walls of his home. It's some sort of ritual done by his fans.

Also if you want to purchase chocolates, the hotel is a couple of blocks away from the first chocolatier in Paris, Debauve et Gallais, at 30 rue des Sts. Peres.
Also there's a branch of Cacao et Chocolat on rue de Buci not far away.

Directions: Located in the 7th district but actually right on the border of the 6th district (St. Germain). One block off of rue des Sts. Peres and two from rue Jacob.

Charming and Quiet

by written on April 24, 2003

While searching for "une toilette" today for my 5 year old daughter, I came accross this quaint hotel in the 7th. Located in a neighborhood filled with galleries and antique shops, the hotel is on a quiet street two blocks off the Seine and the Pont du Carrousel, the bridge to the Louvre. The appearance is charming and the staff was friendly (they let us use the toilet!) The public areas that I saw were decorated with antiques and resemble a library in a manor home! I picked up a brochure and the rooms look equally as charming. I'm going to recommend this to visiting friends!

Unique Quality: 2003 prices:

Single - 120 euros
Double - 140 euros
Double de luxe - 185 euros
Le petit déjeuner (breakfast) - 12 euros
Extra bed - 23 euros
