Relais Christine was the first of a number of hotels during our two week stay in Paris. As we will be visiting Paris more regularly, we wanted to explore a few different hotels to know which might be best to use as a home base. We will definitely be returning. We love the warm, inviting feel of this hotel, in our favorite part of the city. The staff is very friendly and service oriented. We especially appreciated the way Maren Gremels handled a noise situation that was coming from the restaurant next door. This restaurant decided to renovate the kitchen at literally 3 am. She was sincere in her apology, although it was not the hotel's fault, and wanted to be sure to make things right. We also greatly appreciate the help from FranÃ§ois who was as shocked as we were about the problem coming from next door. He also was a great help in recommending some restaurants for us to try. The gym and spa downstairs are amazing, take your swimming gear so you can get into the hot spa and sauna. During our stay in Paris, we also stayed at Le Pavillon de la Reine and the Ritz and regarding the service, in many ways we prefer Relais Christine.
