The room was small but clean and cozy. Friendly staff and the location was great for us. Metro runs under the hotel but it didn't disturb us. Actually it was only positive that two metro station we located quite near the hotel, which made easier to reach all the wonderful sights of Paris.

The male receptionist whom I spoke to on the phone about my reservation (4 Jan) was very rude and had terrible communication skills. He didn't listen at all but interrupted, talked very impatiently with his loud voice. When I asked if I could speak to a manager instead, he shouted and hung up on me. I cancelled the hotel without... More

Beds are very hard with dense pillows. I think the metro must run under the hotel as every 5 minutes you feel some type of vibration. There seems to be the smell of the sewers coming into the room. The bathroom is decorated nice but there is a led display that is pretty weird. For 160 euros per night I... More

Stayed here for the first time in 2013, and were just as happy with the hotel the second time around last weekend. Many of the same friendly staff members were there to great us. The location cannot be beat! We asked for room 204 (with a balcony), but it was not available as it was being renovated during our stay,... More

Typically of a lot of 3 star hotels in Europe the Minerve is a bit old and worn out but the rooms are clean and comfortable (albeit quite small as , again , is typical of European Hotels at this range).There seemed to be a different staff member at the front desk every time we went through the lobby,a couple...

Quite small hotel in a old building. So for example the elevator takes two person and bags. But Minerve Hotel is wonderful, very nice and warm. Our room was big enough and always clean. We had difficulties with Wi-Fi. Stuff is helpful, always saying bonjour/hello. Stuff in reception speak very good english. Breakfast is scanty but worth for money. Metro... More

This small, traditional hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of many Left Bank places of interest. It is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. Our room was small but adequate for a short stay. We were pleased that, even though our room faced the busy street, it was quiet. In an area with many restaurants and bakeries,... More

Very well situated hotel in the Quartier Latin in central Paris. The welcome is friendly, I arrived around 11:30h and could leave my bags there with no problem, as my room was not ready yet. They have a nice and big lounge area in the basement, where you can sit and meet. The room was tiny, just about the bed... More

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.
