Lovely quiet hotel with beautiful grounds to sit in and have breakfast. Very nice waitress who served breakfast. Great restaurants nearby. Easy walk to the muse d'orsay and other sights. Breakfast good. The only downside was very poor wifi and the maid knocking on the door to service the room at 8.30 am.But would definitely come again.

We loved this hotel! The rooms are big for Europe and filled with antiques. The breakfast is superior and the grounds the hotel sits on are beautiful. Its away from the crowds and its warm, quiet and inviting. Its well worth the walk up the hill from the subway.

Charming old hotel with quiet setting. Go in the big double doors off the street and up the garden-like cobblestone walk to the lovely courtyard with tables under the trees. We met three or four people at the front desk during our stay; all were friendly, professional, and proficient in English. They will arrange a cab for you, do wake-up... More

The 6th arrondisement on Rue Cardinal Limoine. Great little area called le muffetard nearby with shops and restaurants not far from St Germain. Quite good value with old world charm and modern washrooms! Tucked behind a wall off the street and away from the traffic noise in Paris.

Senior couple from Johannesburg, South Africa. We had high expectations from all the good reviews and were not disappointed, in fact our experience surpassed them. From our arrival when we were greeted with tea and apple juice while our room was being prepared, to Dorothea's delightful entertaining, we were made to feel as though it was our own home. We...

If you are looking for all mod cons, such as air conditioning and TV, this is not the hotel for you. However, if you want something ideally placed for Notre Dame, typically Parisienne, with a lovely leafy courtyard and utter charm you may just have found what you are looking for. We stayed one night in room 134, which was... More

This charming hotel never lets us down. Where else would you find a place with a shady courtyard garden to escape to for a break from sightseeing? Buy a bottle of wine and some cheese on the Mouffetard and enjoy it in your "own place". Perfectly situated, perfectly charming. Easy walks to Isle St Louis, Pantheon, Luxembourg Gardens and Jardin... More

After much research I chose this hotel and later found a friend had stayed and loved it too. It is very simple but charming. Its up the hill, a 10 min walk from the Seine but a pleasant walk or subway to various sites. We were greeted in the Reception with "Welcome Home" by a lovely lady next to the... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times in the past and have always loved it. This time I stayed there with my husband and our friends. It was their first visit to the hotel and they fell in love with it, too. It is a little "oasis" in the middle of busy Paris and located in the Latin Quarter.... More

While we understand that hotels are subject to reviews which are based on personal experience we have to say that this is our very favourite hotel in Paris and that we have had six visits there over a period of fifteen years. Nt once have we been disappointed. The hotel is set in a wonderful little garden where one can... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
