We booked directly from the hotel, the price was 82 euros per night. The booking was done two months in advance. Pros: The room was very clean and was carefully made up every day. It was just the right size with a big bathroom. The receptionists were all very helpfull and assisted with all that was needed during our stay... More

The staff were brilliant! We got a good welcome and a brilliant goodbye, the guy checking us out did a very good dance. The staff were polite and I think they appreciated us making the effort to speak French. The hotel is in Notre Dame and is in a brilliant location. It is in walking distance of Notre Dame Cathedral,... More

My husband and son stayed overnight at the Hotel des Arenes, on rue Monge, in Paris, on 14 November 14. The hotel is located near the rue Mouffetard market and lively cafe and restaurant area of Contrescarpe, but the best thing about Hotel des Arenes is the friendly welcome and helpful attitude from Jacob on the front desk, who quickly...

My wife was referred to the Hôtel des Arènes by a French-American friend who has stayed there several times. Her friend thought that we’d really like it, that it would be perfect for us, and she was right. When we arrived, the front desk clerk (whom we came to adore) allowed me to choose from available rooms. I chose a... More

We stayed at the Hotel for 4 nights. Good location. 10 minute walk from the Seine, Notre-Dame Cathedral and many restaurants and shops in the Latin Quarter & St Germain districts. As well as the Hop on Hop off bus stop. The hotel is situated on the grounds of Arena Lutece, an ancient amphitheatre dating from the 1st century AD.... More

My sons and I stayed here for 8 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is close to great shops and restaurants. Go to the left and walk up to many great places to eat. The staff was very helpful in each and every transaction especially Jacob. We would stay here again! Merci!

The hotel is in a great location, as has been said before. It is very clean, and the staff were delightful. The room was small, as are most rooms in Paris, but it had TV, safe, and air conditioning. Breakfast was quite expensive at €12.50, and comprised cereals, fruit juice, bread, packs of toasty biscuits,croissants, pain au chocolat, boiled eggs,... More

We stayed here for a week, and although our room was small , it overlooked the Arena and was very comfortable. Some locals got into the arena one night at about 2am and were very noisy for about an hour, but this was a one off.. The rest of the time it was very quiet. Breakfast is good, the staffwere...

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.
