Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Intimate and chic boutique hotel with courteous staff
  • Fabulous Saint Germain location close to shopping and cafes
  • Gourmet restaurant with a menu that changes monthly
  • Outdoor terrace for street-side dining
  • Cozy Library Bar with a fireplace
  • Modern rooms come with flat-screen TVs and iPod/iPad docks
  • Bathrooms have L'Occitane toiletries and bathrobes
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Dog-friendly -- ask about the "VID" amenities

Cons

  • Prices are steep
  • Standard Rooms (and bathrooms) are pretty small
  • Rooms next to the elevators can be noisy

Bottom Line

This oh-so-chic boutique hotel in the heart of Saint Germain's shopping district has 56 rooms and suites in a Parisian house-like setting. Exuding a posh atmosphere (with prices to match), Montalembert's decor combines high design with an understated palette of black, taupe, gray and bronze. The gourmet restaurant changes its menu monthly and has a sidewalk terrace -- perfect for people-watching in warmer months. In cooler months, the Library Bar is a cozy spot for impromptu meetings by the fireplace. Rooms are stylish with original artwork on the walls, striped carpets and crisp linens. Amenities include flat-screen TVs and iPod/iPad docks, bathrobes and toiletries from L'Occitane (suites come with Nespresso machines.) Breakfast, for a fee, can be served in the breakfast room or in rooms upon request. There is not a spa on-site, but higher-tier rooms can schedule in-room massages. The hotel is dog-friendly, and Wi-Fi is free.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Located in the heart of Saint Germain district -- a shoppers and gourmands paradise

The Hotel Montalembert is ideally located in the heart of the "Left Bank", in Saint Germain des Prés and walking distance to the Musee d'Orsay, Seine and the Louvre. It is a true shopper's paradise; within steps are designers' shops, including chic brands like Cassina, Christian Liaigre, Kartell, Knoll, Maxalto, Poltrona Frau and Silvera. For a bigger selection, the Bon Marché department store with its "Grande Epicerie" is just down the road. Art lovers will love being in such close proximity to the galleries taking up residence in all the side-streets. For foodies, there are numerous cafes close by (many open late in the evening) including the cult classics Les Deux Magots, Cafe de Flore and Brasserie Lipp. In addition, a Monoprix supermarket/deli is across the road and a Joel Robuchon restaurant next door. The St. Germain metro station is nearby.
