Where to Stay in Paris 6th District
Hôtel Madison ★★★★
143 Boulevard Saint-Germain, Paris 75006
The Madison's location across the street from Église Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a lovely church with a tower built in the year 1000 where you can attend classical concerts throughout the year and visit a wonderful pop-up Christmas market next to it starting in mid-November. You're also conveniently close (ie, a 10-minute walk or less) to Notre Dame, the Orsay Museum, and Sainte-Chapelle. The famous Les Deux Magots cafe frequented by Hemingway, Sartre, and Camus is on the opposite corner, and you'll find literally hundreds of other excellent bistros and restaurants within a 5-minute walk of the hotel - so have fun choosing!
This 50-room boutique hotel in the 6th arrondissement Paris features modern furnishings, luxurious fabrics, and serene decor, with balconies in some guestrooms overlooking the church. Fun fact: Each bathroom has artisan-made basins, each a unique color and shape.
After a massive top-to-bottom renovation, 5-star Hôtel Lutecia - the Left Bank's only luxury "Palace" hotel - is more spectacular than ever with 184 large guestrooms and suites featuring posh blue and gray decor, comfortable furnishings, and marble baths with deep tubs and huge windows overlooking iconic Paris vistas.
Equally fabulous are the new public spaces - a luxurious all-marble spa with a hammam, sauna, and sun-lit indoor swimming pool, and a welcoming Jazz Bar. A Michelin-starred chef now heads the hotel's brasserie, once a favorite Saint-Germain-des-Prés hang-out for Hemingway, Matisse, Camus, and Josephine Baker. One of the biggest show-stoppers: original Romanesque frescoes discovered under layers of paint in the 100+ year old hotel and now meticulously restored for all to enjoy in Bar Joséphine.

Relais Christine ★★★★★
3 Rue Christine, 6th arrondissement
Relais Christine, one of the very best 5-star luxury hotels in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, is built on foundations of a 13th century abbey with a gated courtyard in a top location near the Seine. It features 48 charming high-ceilinged guest rooms and suites with French country decor plus a fabulous spa with Guerlain products and fragrances. You'll love the hotel's private flower-filled garden - you will feel like you're in the French countryside rather than a bustling city.
The hotel's superb location on a quiet street only 1-block long is in an area filled with art galleries, boutiques, and bistros at the edge of the Latin Quarter near the Seine River. The famous specialty tea store, Mariage Frères Rive Gauche, is at the end of the block - refreshments in their tea room or a meal in their restaurant is always a wonderful experience, so put it on your calendar.
Of course, you're also close to other top attractions: Notre Dame, Sainte-Chapelle, the Conciergerie, Musée Cluny, and one of the 6th arrondissement's best-kept secrets - Cour de Commerce Saint-André, an almost hidden passage where some of France's top philosophers, artists, writers, and revolutionaries once hung out.
With a wonderful location on a quiet side street in the heart of Saint-Germain near Saint-Sulpice Church, boutique Hôtel Clément features 28 mostly small but nicely furnished guest rooms and suites perfect for families with comfortable beds, air conditioning, an elevator, in-room safes, and a concierge at the front desk - far more than you might normally expect in a 2-star Paris hotel.
The hotel serves a lavish breakfast with many choices and gourmet products. You'll also find plenty of other breakfast choices in the neighborhood, including the Marché Saint-Germain covered market across the street and a variety of bakeries if you just want to grab a croissant and coffee. And of course for other meals, this neighborhood has seemingly endless choices of wonderful bistros and restaurants.
Hotel Clément is a true gem, and sister hotel to the excellent and much fancier 4 star Hotel Molière across the river in the 1st arrondissement near the Louvre Museum. Although no 2 star Paris hotels (that you'd actually want to stay in) in Paris are cheap, this boutique property in the top-rated 6th arrondissement gives you top value for your money.
