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

In the Latin Quartier , in a walking distance from Notre Dame , this nice hotel offers clean and cosy rooms, nicely decorated in a fashion manner. But most of all, and one of the main reason I chosed this hotel is that it guarantees your parking place if you come by car. They make a reservation for your parking... More

I am really struggling with how to review this hotel because our experience the first night was like staying in a completely different hotel then the 4 nights we stayed afterward. When we arrived I was really happy to see a lovely hotel with balconies and gauzy window coverings. Our check-in experience was very nice, though we were surprised to... More

I can't understand the people who have said this hotel isn't up to scratch for the money. It's a budget hotel and it delivers! Location-wise, this is easy walking distance from Notre Dame and it's in a nice, safe-feeling student type area. There's also a brilliant American diner 2 doors down for brunch! The lift is tiny so if you... 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.
