Edited by Travel Weekly

    Travel Weekly was lucky enough to recently experience one of Paris’ most acclaimed hotels; Pavillon Faubourg Saint-Germain, part of the Chevalier Paris Collection of properties.

    Nestled in the heart of the charming St Germain-Des-Prés district in Paris, the hotel stands as a beacon of elegance and sophistication. This boutique property offers an unforgettable experience for discerning travellers, combining classic Parisian charm with modern luxury.

    Neo Brasserie Dining at the Restaurant Les Parisiens:

    The hotel’s restaurant is a culinary haven, offering an innovative menu of both traditional and contemporary French haute-bistronomy.

    Under the leadership of well-known executive chef Thibault Sombardier, the restaurant boasts a selection of gourmet French dishes prepared with locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. From a succulent Filet de Bœuf Français to delicate Vol-au-vent << Paris – Deauville >>, each dish is a work of art that celebrates the rich flavours of French cuisine.

    The wine list is as impressive as any French “Grand Brasserie” and the cellar boasts options from many of the great French appellations, including iconic champagne brands, contemporary biodynamic wines and ‘straight from the cellar door’ listings.

    Our Connected Family-Style Room:

    For families or groups of friends, Pavillon Faubourg Saint-Germain offers a unique connected family-style room. This accommodation option allows guests to enjoy the privacy of their own rooms while maintaining a shared space, making it ideal for creating lasting memories ensemble or tout seul. The rooms are elegantly appointed, boasting a warm blend of contemporary design and classic French aesthetics.

    Impeccable 5-Star Service:

    The hallmark of Pavillon Faubourg Saint-Germain is its immaculate 5-star service. The hotel’s staff exudes warmth and professionalism, attending to every need with genuine care and attention to detail. From arranging bespoke guided tours to securing reservations at the city’s finest establishments, they ensure that each guest’s stay is nothing short of extraordinary.

    Sophistication at James Joyce Bar:

    After a day of exploring the bustling streets of Paris, guests can unwind in the hotel’s English style bar, aptly named after James Joyce, who lived at the address. The ambience is one of refined luxury, with plush seating and a comprehensive selection of fine wines and craft cocktails.

    Sip on a perfectly mixed martini or savour a glass of champagne as you relish in the company of well-heeled locals and fellow travellers, from all corners of the globe.

    A Spa Experience like no other:

    The Spa Des Prés offers an enchanting escape into wellness and relaxation. This luxurious sanctuary boasts a variety of amenities, making it the perfect haven for those seeking serenity and rejuvenation.

    At the heart of the spa is a deep indoor plunge pool adorned with soothing water jets. Adjacent to the pool, a well-equipped fitness room awaits those inclined to maintain their exercise regimen during their stay. The meditation and yoga room provides a serene space to reconnect with one’s inner self.

    Spa Des Prés also houses two massage cabins where skilled therapists offer a range of rejuvenating treatments, from Swedish massages to hot stone therapies, tailored to each guest’s needs. To complete the sensory experience, a traditional hammam beckons, offering a sanctuary for cleansing and relaxation.

    Discovering St Germain-Des-Prés:

    Stepping outside the hotel’s doors, guests find themselves in the vibrant St Germain-Des-Prés district. Famed for its artistic heritage and bohemian atmosphere, this area is a treasure trove of art galleries, quaint cafes, and fashionable boutiques.

    Guests can take a leisurely stroll along the Seine, visit the iconic Notre-Dame Cathedral, and immerse themselves in the intellectual history of the Latin Quarter.


    Pavillon Faubourg Saint-Germainoffers a captivating blend of luxury, gastronomy, and cultural exploration. From the exquisite dining experiences to the warm hospitality and its prime location, this boutique hotel promises an unforgettable stay in the City of Lights.
