In easy access by metro or walking, this budget hotel has clean rooms, a friendly staff, and decent continental breakfast. We traveled as a group of faculty and students and found it ideal. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed our stay at this clean and comfortable hotel. The kind and obliging staff made all the difference, including Jacob (on the desk) ringing a number of dentists to see whether I could have an emergency appointment. Always a pleasure to return after a day's sightseeing to be greeted with great courtesy and friendliness.

A really good team of staff on the desk made our special trip even better; they went out of the way to make arrival and departure a pleasure. We arranged it through 'booking.com' and had a nice double room at the back overlooking the quiet park & arena. It is only 100 yds from the 'Rue Monge' Metro but is... More

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!

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.
