I've stayed multiple times at both Muguet and Relais Bosquet. I have not stayed at Hotel Germain. I find both Muguet and Relais Bosquet quiet, perhaps Muguet a teeny bit more. I've gotten Eiffel Tower views at both at times. At Muguet I also think I got a view of the dome over Napoleon's tomb once which is lit up at night. I'm booked in to Muguet in October and the only reason I'm not staying at Relais Bosquet is that their prices still seem to be inflated from the Olympics.

There is a nice small pocket park along the edge of Les Invalides complex across the street from La Tour-Maubourg Metro stop. There are benches and shade. If I'm having a relaxing day I'll pick up a sandwich at Bretteau Sebastien and take it to the park for lunch along with my Kindle. There is an incredible amount of bird poo on benches so I take a heavier plastic bag to sit on in Paris, lol.

Where is the Hotel Germain?

I really loved the Relais Bosquet in 2018. My first thought after entering my room was “I can’t believe I get to stay here.” I spent a little extra for an Eiffel Tower view which was absolutely worth it in my opinion…loved ending the night watching the lights twinkle from my little balcony. They have a cute breakfast room with a lovely little patio. I think I was on the third or fourth floor and didn’t have any issues with noise. I will say, it seems like prices there have gone up a lot since I stayed there, but if it’s in your budget, then go for it.

We love Relais Bosquet. Has been our go to for years. Lovely rooms, great location, around the corner from tons of restaurants, etc. Easy short walk to Eiffel Tower. Highly recommend.

I can't find "hotel Germain" on the map; if it is anywhere near St Germain des Prés then I would prefer that location over the other two.

I have stayed at the Hotel Relais Bosquet twice now; once in December 2023 and the other March of 2022. In March we ran into Rick Steves staying there and it was nice to see him staying at one of the places he recommends. My niece and I enjoyed our stays there both times. The front desk people remembered us and we really liked the location, even though it was really only close to the tower and we used the metro or walked everywhere else, that was fine with us. Our room did have a view of the tower which was fun and we actually had the same room both trips. While I would stay there again I might also seek out an entirely different area and hotel to experience a different neighborhood.

Thank you for clarifying, then yes, I really prefer the Hotel Saint Germain location. It is walkable (within 30 min) to many places in Paris.

I too prefer Hotel Saint Germain. It's IMO the best located of the three. I am not sure how much "nature" you will get at any of these locations.
