The Saint-James is an institution in Paris, this majestic mansion is a characteristic hotel of timeless Parisian chic.
Hot air ballons took off here
It is in the 16th arrondissement of Paris that the Saint-James Paris lovingly cultivates an incomparable refinement and art of living. Close to the Arc de Triomphe and Avenue Foch, this exceptional hotel reveals a confidential character tinged with bucolism which gives it a unique aura. In its first life, the majestic mansion on Place Adenauer housed the Thiers Foundation, created in 1892 on the land where the hot air balloons took off. For nearly a century, the foundation has supported brilliant students by granting them scholarships and sometimes accommodation.
Iconic Parisian private mansion
In the 1980s, the building became the address of the Saint James Club, in the tradition of London circles. Both sumptuous and so romantic. All the codes of the great hotels of yesteryear have been scrupulously respected by Laura Gonzalez who has magnified the neoclassical architecture of the building which thus completely embodies the iconic Parisian private mansion. Soft and luminous, like a private house with a soul, where the garden invites itself inside, the Saint James invites you on an astonishing journey through time so characteristic of timeless Parisian chic.
