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

I stayed for 3 nights here with my adult daughter. I had requested a room with twin beds and a balcony if possible. Both requests were granted by the very friendly front desk staff. The hotel is a basic three star, rooms are small but this is Europe and what is expected. The bathroom was a good size and the... More

I just spent two nights at the Hotel Minerve in Paris, France in the heart of the Latin Quarter and I could not have had a better stay. The hotel, though older was quaint and comfortable. The desk help friendly and accommodating. A friend and I spent two days and nights at the Minerve which is just around the corner... More

Was recommended this hotel and it ended up being perfect for our trip. Was well located near Notre Dame and a metro station. Many things within walking distance. Service was good and it was clean. Rooms are small as in most Paris hotels. Would definitely stay again.

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

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.
