The Relais Christine is everything you didn’t know you wanted in a Paris hotel: a peaceful, tranquil retreat—yet close to the charming Latin quarter and lots of quaint art shops and cafes. The hidden world of the Relais Christine was created from a centuries-old mansion that was originally associated with a 13th-century abbey. It has maintained historic details such as a cobblestone courtyard and gorgeous garden while incorporating technology that delivers perfect comfort.
The décor includes a warm red-and-brown colour scheme and boasts captivating oil portraits in the drawing room. Other enchanting features of the hotel include a breakfast room with a vaulted stone ceiling, a modern spa, and a distinctive drawing room and bar.
The 51 rooms and suites at the Relais Christine are a delightful blend of contemporary pieces and timeless French style. The large windows let light in and present magnificent views over the courtyard, while the interiors include details such as beamed ceilings, antique desks, and gold-accented furniture. Modernity sets in with the flat-screen TVs, wireless Internet access, towel warmers in the bathrooms, and Molton Brown toiletries.
You may never eat your morning meal in a room so full of character again. The breakfast room, located in the cellar, features vaulted ceilings, exposed stone, tapestries, a suit of armor, and an ancient book as the centerpiece. The incredible cooking hearth contains ancient pots and ironwork, while lighting is supplied by iron sconces. When you’re ready to relax with a cocktail, an honour bar located in the beautiful lounge is an inviting spot to pour yourself a beverage and soak up the atmosphere.
In addition to the striking breakfast room, the old cellar also boasts a luxurious spa where guests can indulge in a massage, take advantage of a host of modern cardiovascular equipment in the high-tech fitness centre, slip into a Jacuzzi, or request a service at the beauty parlour. The natural stone walls and ceilings produce a unique and uplifting ambience in which to re-energize.
The Relais Christine sits in the Saint-Germain-des-Pres district, which is renowned for its intellectual and artistic circles. Throughout the centuries, celebrated names such as Baudelaire, Hugo, Musset, Picasso, Sartre, and Eluard have been associated with the area.
The stars of the Relais Christine are two newly renovated guestrooms that have private gardens complete with a lawn, flowers, and wooden chairs and table.
The hotel offers one meeting room that can accommodate up to 30 people. The welcoming space includes a line-up of business tools such as an overhead projector, screen, slide projector with remote, VCR and DVD player, and wireless Internet connection.
Within a stone's throw of the world-famous Louvre Museum and awe-inspiring Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Relais Christine is perfectly located in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, a bustling district famous for its intellectual and artistic circles.
