Italian designers Dimore Studio spent two years revamping this five-story mansion—once the home of Louis XV’s chief minister—into a riot of colors: think
mustard yellow, forest green, and eggplant walls; patterned curtains and carpets; and Art Deco furniture that together might make it the most eye-catching hotel in all of Paris. Each of the 26 guest rooms are decked out in Louis de Poortere rugs, velvets by Dedar, and Jim Thompson silks, which have a warming effect that’s emphasized by the covetable FontanaArte lamps and wall fixtures, while bathrooms have underfloor heating and some have separate bathtubs. On a warm day, the veranda is a lovely place to sit with a cocktail from the honor bar or a complimentary coffee. The basement swimming pool can be booked in advance and, while the green-painted, windowless room has a slightly ’70s sci-fi ambience, a steam and a swim is the ideal way to end a day of sightseeing.
In the Area
The hotel is well located in a neighborhood with plenty of dining and drinking options, and sits in close proximity to public transport: the Richelieu-Drouot metro station is just around the corner, the Opera station a five-minute walk, and it’s just 15 minutes to Paris Nord. The Centre Pompidou, home to one of the best collections of modern art in Europe, and the Louvre are also both within walking distance. The nearby Palais Garnier, a stunning 19th-century opera house, still puts on stellar music and ballet performances; ask the concierge to arrange for tickets. A couple of the intimate café-bars that Paris does so well are also just a few streets away; try La Gorille, a bar with excellent food, or the understatedly cool Lockwood for afternoon espressos and evening cocktails.
How to Get There
My husband and I just spent five nights at Hotel Saint-Marc and we cannot say enough about our experience. The hotel is posh with all the latest amenities, but it has a warm and welcoming feel. Our guest room was spectacular! Even though the hotel location is perfectly situated to explore Paris by foot, our room opened onto a quiet courtyard. We left our windows opened every night!
The staff went out of their way to make our stay memorable. They helped us with dinner reservations, directions, and transportation to the airport. After giving us a 3:30AM wake-up call on our departure day, the concierge made sure to have to-go coffee available when we came down.
Without question, we will stay here on our next visit. Hotel Saint-Marc is the epitome of a first-class boutique hotel; it is luxurious while maintaining a very intimate feel.
Travelled with my daughters during their spring break and stayed in a large, lovely triple room. Art Deco style, luxurious down bedding and great decor to the room. As pictured on hotel website. The bathroom we had was very large with a walk in shower large enough for two! Grown Alchemist toiletries, bathrobes, slippers and thick towels are perfect after a long day of walking through Paris. There is a lovely floral scent that greets you as soon as you enter and throughout the hotel, an enormous vase of fresh pink roses sits at the front desk. A lovely terrace adjacent to the breakfast room would be very nice in spring. Dommage, it was too cool to enjoy during our stay. And the service is very polite and gracious. They keep the hotel meticulously clean and our rooms were in spotless, tip top shape when we returned from our busy day. Very good WiFi, breakfast and snacks too. Highly recommend this quiet, boutique hotel tucked away from any city noise in the 2ieme.
The Saint Marc hotel is advertised as a boutique hotel and it is much more than that.
I travel often for work and I have stayed in nice, less nice hotels and good ones, this one is by far my new favorite!!!
The location is great, the hotel is very beautiful and well maintained, the stuff is very helpful and nice, they did all the can to make sure I am happy, not so typical in Paris, well done!!
My room was amazing I love the high ceilings and the design. I can’t wait to visit again this time with my husband for sure.
Really lovely small boutique hotel - had a beautiful smell everywhere we went! The staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't eat there but the breakfast looked good, but there are plenty of nearby places. The room was lovely - large by french standards - comfortable bed and very good shower. The whole hotel had a 1930's feel - I kept thinking that any moment Maigret or Poirot would appear! We walked from Gare du Nord which didn't take too long but there are Metro stations nearby. I would love to stay here again!
This hotel is in a fab location, within walking distance of many of the main sights of Paris. The reception staff are v friendly, fluent in English and happy to give great recommendations on where to drink/eat. For Paris, the rooms are big and the bathrooms are palatial. All in all, I’d really recommend this hotel.
