This famous Left Bank neighborhood, so named because the numerous university students in the area spoke only Latin to their professors until the French Revolution, preserves an authentic Parisian atmosphere of old.

We stayed here during a long weekend in Paris. The area is nice with lots of narrow, winding streets and cafes where Moules and Frites are a must. It's a beautiful area to explore and within easy walking distance of Montemartre, the Moulin Rouge, the Sacré-Coeur Basilica and the Metro Station.

I stayed at The Best Western St Michel which is in the middle of a variety of shops restaurants, bars, cafes. Boulavard St Germain... More

This is the place to go for cheap and yummy food, as well as the classic Parisian atmosphere! You feel transported to a different time and just wants to stay there a little longer.

The epicenter of college-age and 20 somethings, due to Colleges (e.g. Sorbonne) within the area. At the Fountain/place de Saint Michel, there are performers playing music, dancing, pantomime, and variety of other free entertainment at many hours of night > day. Half dozen cafes surround the St Michel Fountain, much more reasonably priced than those on Champs Elysees, and with... More

On the Left Bank, near the university, these are streets where the brilliant and bawdy have walked. There is lots to see for those who amble. It is a great place to soak up Paris. It is true that it has been modernized by commerce, but it has a great vibe.

Within walking distance of most attractions with out the massive traffic of the city. Good restaurants, nice rental flats and and a bit slower pace makes this an excellent base for your Paris adventure.

Rented an apartment here to be near the Sorbonne for a concert and enjoyed the atmosphere, especially the Rue du Pot de Feu and Rue Mouffetard, a bit of medieval atmosphere. Many cafes and delis for eats, from mid-range to cheap.

Staying in Odeon / Saint-Michel

Neighborhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
