The hotel is in the heart of the latin quarter, a short walk from the Luxembourg Gardens and a easy walk to The Seine, Notre Dame ,The Pantheon, The Louvre and many other main tourist sights , you can also catch the Metro which is 5 minutes from the hotel to anywhere else you want to visit. We had a... More

When booking, I tried to get a triple comfort but they only had triple classic. Was disappointed with everything about the room except the size. Outside of the fact that this was one of the largest rooms I stayed anywhere in Europe, the bathroom was not in the best shape. The tub was like an oversized bucket, very weird. Had... More

The hotel is in the heart of the 5th arrondissement, between the Sorbonne and the Pantheon, not far from the Seine and Notre Dame, and very close to Luxembourg gardens. The walk from the hotel to the heart of the rive gauche is pleasant. Inside, the two-star hotel would look like a boutique hotel, but this is only a little... More

This hotel is very well situated just next to the Garden Luxembourg, the Sorbonne university and the Pantheon in the Quartier Latin, but the not so touristy part of it. The place is yet nice and quiet, the rooms are small but a bit bigger than normal in Paris in this price range, the staff was mostly on the phone... More

Small and cozy hotel. Very central and with a great neighbourhood. The nearby Jardin de Luxembourg is absolutely amazing and a great place to kick back...Small rooms, but clean and fresh. Positive and welcoming staff. Totally fine for a couple of nights, but would have been to small for more..

Stayed there for 3 days and got a full Paris experience thanks to it amazing location. The hotel is really next to Jardin du Luxembourg and Metro Line 2(RER), which can take you to and from the airport without switching lines. You can walk to Notre Dame Cathedral within a few minutes. The hotel is very parisian and my room... More

We stayed here last week and though we had booked it and made a special request almost 2 months ago, got one of the tiniest rooms we ever stayed anywhere..The receptionist during our check in was a bit uptight, not sure if that is the general Parisian attitude that we got in many places or language issues..We dint however worry...

With my wife we stayed there for 6 nights. Everything was as expected and scheduled. Room was confortable and very clean. Thje staff's attention was remarkable. The location is great: 2 blocks from Luxemburg gardens and metro station, 8 blocks from NotreDame, and Soborne place just arround the corner. The neiborhood (latin Quartier) is plenty of restaurants and pubs, with... More

as many have mentioned, the location of hotel excelsior is absolutely tops but the staff and the rooms are what make it truly excellent. our triple room was incredibly spacious (which is even more impressive considering it's paris!), beautifully designed and very comfortable. we didn't take the breakfast option as there are too many great dining options in the area....

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.
