The hotel is in middle of the Quartier Latin, has very good rooms - not too big, but quite allright. King size beds and tv. there is a good working wifi if you remember to ask for passwords at the reception. The lift is very small. The breakfast 'restaurant' in the cellar is quite cosy.

Nice, solid hotel in the heart of the fifth arrondissement. Rooms, which are a decent size by Paris standards, have been recently updated, with flat-screen tv and very good a/c. In addition to the usual double rooms, there are a few triples available which are small but comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful, and there is a coffee machine in... More

I stayed at this awful hotel with my mum during Christmas last year. The reception had a very rude lady. At first we were given a tiny hexagonal room. While I understand that real estate in Paris must be high, nobody deserves to spend so much money and be stuffed into a hexagonal rat hole. It was specially inconvenient for... More

Stayed here for two nights in June, the rooms are small but have been recently renovated with modern upgrades and have everything you need. The location is close to the regional train from the airport, as well as to the Metro network. Works as an excellent base for exploring Paris and and the many restaurants and cafés on the Latin...

At first I was very pleased with the Hotel Minerve. It's in a nice location, it was clean and comfortable, and I even got a free upgrade to my room when I checked in. My troubles began when I was checking out. At the end of my stay, as I was leaving for the airport, the manager said he needed... More

The best part about the Minerve was the location with easy access to the Metro, walking distance to Notre Dame and plenty of places to eat nearby. The rooms are small but clean, staff were helpful enough (though we did struggle a bit at breakfast with non-English speaking staff there) and breakfast was available if you wanted to eat in...

I have just spent 2 nights at the Minerve hotel. I arrived at 1pm after a long journey (got up at 3am) to be told by unfriendly staff that the room would not be ready until 2pm. I asked if another room was ready earlier, I was told not and that I would have to wait. So I waited in... More

This is our second stay at the Minerve Hotel. It is brilliantly located, a short stroll to the Ile de France (Notre Dame & the Marais) and in the heart of the bubbling left bank - students, Sorbonne and cafe culture. The hotel was originally built around 1800 and retains some of that character. Rooms are not enormous, and if... More

Rooms are fairly small, ike in most, moderately-priced Parisian hotels. Following the recommendations of other reviewers asked for a quiet room overlooking the street (Rue des Ecoles) and we had a tiny balcony with a table. So one could have breakfast with a view! The room was clean, service good. Breakfast is probably not worth the nine Euros and after... More

What a charming little boutique hotel in a FANTASTIC location. Just a short walk from the Seine and Notre Dame. Also located near St. Michel, which was a great, lively neighborhood with many restaurants and shops. If you're looking for a 5 star property this is not the hotel for you. However, if you're into cozy, romantic boutique properties, this... 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.
