Relais Christine, is a 5-star luxury hotel located in the heart of Saint-Germaine-des-Prés, just a few steps away from the Seine. Tucked away on a quiet street through a charming courtyard, the hotel is the epitome of Parisian luxury: elegant yet unobtrusive.
Once a Bourgeois private residence, the hotel has been re-furnished and decorated, adding contemporary details while preserving the property’s original architectural features.
Inside their grand lounge area, the opulent color palettes and velvet furnitures exude elegance and refinement, while the low ceilings and fireplace provide warmth and coziness..
A member of the Small Luxury Hotels collection, the hotel has 48 rooms and suites, each with individual interior design for a unique experience. From Cosy Rooms to Garden Suites, which come with its own private terrace in the garden, there is a room for everyone at Relais Christine.
It’s not hard to see that a lot of consideration has been put into all the details around the hotel, as evident from the delicate wall fabrics, luxurious textiles, parquet floorings..
Located downstairs under the 13th century vaults is the glorious Guerlain Spa. A trip downstairs to the oldest chamber in the hotel was a treat of its own, as I couldn’t help but marvel at the extraordinary atmosphere. In the cave-like room surrounded by ancient stones, guests are invited to relax and discover all the Guerlain beauty products. Range of exclusive beauty services are available, as well as the gym, sauna and a jacuzzi designed in an oriental mosaic..
What’s more – breakfast is a treat. From the scrumptious pastry basket to the cheese and exotic fruit selection, everything was fresh and delicious. My favorite part was definitely their famous honey made in their own beehive garden!
The breakfast was wonderful but what I enjoyed more was the scene itself. I loved being in such a warm and inviting atmosphere where I almost felt as if I was having breakfast at a friend’s country house, rather than at a hotel.
The combination of discreet elegance, along with quality service have truly made my time at Relais Christine a special one.
