Hotel de Fleurie

Does anyone have any experience with this hotel in the St. Germain area? It gets generally good reviews on fodors and tripadvisor but it's only a 2 star-I usually go for at least a 3 star but it looks charming(of course) from the website and it has wi-fi throughout the hotel. We are going to Paris for 4days mid January and I was thinking about splurging on the Relais Christine but am still undecided. We're not in the room much but it will be a getaway sans children! Thanks.

I've seen those reviews and just wanted to know if anyone on this board had any experience or knowledge of the hotel, thanks.

I live a few blocks away and it is a very nice, extremely well-maintained family-owned and run property. It is definitely a three-star property; I've always known it as a three-star and I walk by it all the time and they still have that rating.

I know three different people who have stayed there and all have returned several times. I have only seen one of the rooms and, though a bit small (often the norm here), it was very well-appointed and comfortable with a nice bathroom.

The Relais Christine is bigger and more grand, with that beautiful inner courtyard (I live a few doors away) and more spacious common rooms, but much more expensive.

Thank you so much! I've gotten rates from both of them and they are 100Euros apart, breakfast/taxes inclusive (we are going mid-Jan so there are some winter special rates) but the Fleurie does have the Wi-fi and why I'd rather spend the money on great restaurants, etc.

We think alike - I would have gone with the Fleurie and used my savings on food, too.

The Hotel Fluerie is our favorite hotel in Paris. I haven't stayed in Relais Christine (as per another message I just replied to), but I know it looks fantastic from the outside and we love the neighborhood. That said, Hotel Fleurie is in the same neighborhood, albeit off a busier street, and much more reasonable price-wise.

The rooms at Fleurie are tres small, but the family that runs it is tres nice. I think if you want a great Left Bank location, a moderate price (by Paris standards) and you don't mind small rooms and a cramped elevator Hotel Fluerie would be a good choice.

There certainly are a lot of comments regarding small rooms at the Relais Christine also and most other hotels mentioned on tripadvisor, etc. I just love the look of the medieval breakfast room at the R-C and the price will never be lower than mid-Jan. I believe. Am still undecided if we can even squeeze in a quick trip to Paris that week.
