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

AMENITIES: Very clean. By US standards the rooms might seem small. But who spends a lot of time in a hotel when you're visiting Paris?! It was perfect for our group. Rooms were equipped with a bathroom, heat, television, soap, a minibar for those interested, etc. I was 100% satisfied. Breakfast is available, and we loved the choices--bread, croissants, yogurt,...

Clean room and however the bathrrom is very small, the shower is amazing! There is a safe in the room, staff at the front desk is very polite and helpfull. Internet is public, so it's not good. But I don't think that ruins the experience. Really well located between two subway lines, there is a supermarket almost in front of... More

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

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...

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.
