The location of the hotel is perfect, in the 5th arrondisment, a 10 min. walk to the Phanteon, The Notre Dame and Jardin de Luxemburg. Wonderful, helpful staff who speak good English and who were very patient and pleasant. I went on this trip with my husband and 10 year old daughter. We got a wonderful, spacious room for 3....

Bathroom in a Room 58 had just been renovated and was clean and spacious by European standard. Jacob at reception desk was professional, kind, courteous, helpful, knowledgeable, patient and has a wonderful sense of humor! He is an asset to the hotel.

We spent four nights at Hotel des Arènes. We had a room with view on the amphitheater, which was nice as it was really quiet. Metro station nearby, a few cafés where you can have breakfast. The room was quite small but clean. Ok for a short stay and if you spend little time at the hotel. Furniture and interior... More

For the price this is great place to stay. Only 10 minutes stroll to Notre Dame and right next to the metro. Room at the back of hotel overlooking the Arenes de Lutece are probably the best ones to have. The guys behind the desk were very friendly and helpful.

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.

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.
