luxury hotel in the 6th Paris

The Relais Christine hotel in Paris’ 6th Arrondissement.

A hidden gem located on a quiet side street in Saint Germain des Pres, the Relais Christine is a luxury boutique hotel, set inside a former abbey and accessed through a beautiful ivy-covered courtyard. Original details of the former abbey remain, such as the vaulted cave ceilings in the breakfast room. In the morning, there’s homemade honey from bees that frequent the hotel’s garden. Rooms have been recently updated with patterned fabrics and walls that mix and matched to create a classic, yet vibrant, look. Lounge areas are more traditional, with painted portraits displayed and a cozy fireplace. The Relais Christine provides an oasis of calm in one of Paris’ most bustling neighborhoods, especially for those who book one of their popular garden suites – each with a private terrace that opens directly onto the hotel garden.
