Don't let yourself down by the pictures highlighting imperfections. This is indeed not a 4*,5* but its location&service would suffice for you to have a great time in Paris. Is just 10 mins away from Notre Damme and Latin Quarter. One could not ask for more! very nice and safe neighbourhood. Loved strolling around St Germain and taking late walks... More

Hotel is situated in the very heart of the 5th arrondisment, 10 minutes walk from Panteon and Luxembourg Garden and 5 minutes walk from Notre Dame. There are a lot of places to eat in the neighbourhood (on Saint-Germain, for exapmle) and a big Carrefour right in front of the hotel. The room is very cosy and the bed is... More

My first room was very small, with a 80 cm bed (2 separate 80 cm beds)!! A very bad night!. I asked for a change, and they gave me another one, a better one, but still very small and noisy because of the lift... The breakfast were served downstairs, and the guy who was doing it was looking bored and... More

I first stayed in this hotel in 1985 and on this trip I thought I'd see if it was still there. It was and I found a very nice hotel, conveniently located close to two subway stops with very adequate accommodations. The helpful staff included a French Basil Fawlty who provided a few giggles. Nice restaurants were close by.

The hotel is superbly located between underground stations Cardinal Lemoine & Place Monge, very close to the National Museum of Natural History and not far away from La Sorbonne and the Pantheon. Very nice quarter, with lots of Parisian flair. The rooms are OK and typically 3 stars: convenient, simple and with basic furniture. Wifi is simply hell: it is... More

I have stayed in this hotel for many years. The staff is always super friendly and helpful: I have had my wallet stolen in the train station (discovered when I went to pay the bill!) Stayed here with 17 high school students (!!!) and also just with family to tour Paris. The rooms are classic European (to be slept in,... More

We booked this as we had a few days to get away, and we settled on Paris. Our idea was that we'd spend all our time sight seeing, so the hotel wasn't going to be so important. WRONG!!! However, on checking in to this "3 star" (NOT) property, the receptionist asked us to choose a room, and gave me 3... More

We loved staying here. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location was great for walking to nearby Rue De Le Mouffetard Marche for shopping and dining. There was also a local Wednesday corner market happening. We walked to the Batobus (great touring option) on the Seine right by Plants De Jardin (a wonderful garden to walk through on... 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.
