We traveled as a family of three, the "extra" room with the child's bed was actually no room, but the entry itself, everything is so tiny in this hotel, but you have to deal with it, as it is very normal in France. The personnel were very friendly and helpful. I found the continental breakfast expensive first, but in comparison... More

Lovely hotel in superb location. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was situated at the front of the hotel and was really pretty. Our only complaint was the breakfast as it was impossible to eat in the hotel. We would have liked to have had breakfast there as it looked lovely but the dining room was quite... More

This hotel is located just around the corner from a metro station and 10 minutes walk away from Notre Dame. The staff were friendly and we had no complaints about the room. The breakfast was very good value when compared to what was offer in the cafes close by. Excellent free wifi. There were many eating options close by.

Stayed for 3 nights. Good hotel location. Old and stylish. We had a great room on the top floor fronting the road with a balcony. Good view. Very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast sufficient. Very close to all the sights. Great choice of bars and eateries nearby. Would stay there again if we ever returned to Paris.

I will say pretty much the same thing here as I did in my review for the Hotel Familia; it is my understanding that these are "sister" hotels, and they are both fantastic!! I stay at this hotel or Familia every time I visit Paris, and have zero complaints about either! The location could not be better (imo), the staff... More

We stayed at the Minerve Hotel for 3 nights in March 2015. Check in was fast and the receptionist was very welcoming and helpful. The lift is small but enough space for two adults and two cases, so wasnt an issue at all, we were just grateful we didnt have to carry our cases up the stairs. We requested a... More

NEVER EVER USE THIS HOTEL: This is the worst hotel management I have ever come across - two months ago I added (by booking.com) two nights of a twin bedroom to a previous existing booking of two nights in a one bedroom. I then requested by mail the second night of the one bedroom reservation to be changed to a... More

I stayed here for 4 days when I was on a city trip in Paris. If you're looking for a Hotel with that typical Parisian atmosphere that's budget friendly, than this is where you'd want to be. Staff is super friendly, metro station is just around the corner and you can walk to Notre-Dame and the Pantheon(and even the Louvre).... More

The hotel room is modern and comfortable for two. Anyway, downtown rooms in Paris are hardly spacious. The hotel has a small lift, a feature that may not be taken for granted here. The location is great, 4 mins walk from metro station Cardinal Lemoine, 10 mins to Blvd St-Germain, 20 mins to Louvre, and 15 mins to Rue Mouffetard.... 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.
