We stayed at this hotel in the Latin Quarter in mid August 2014. It is located near a metro stop and close to the Seine and Notre Dame. I wanted a hotel that looked like it belonged in Paris i.e. wrought iron railings and white stone front, kind of quaint. The Minerve fit that description. Our room was quite small... More

Great location near to Notre Dame, room we stayed in was quite small but perfect with a small balcony big enough for 2 chairs and a table, spent every evening of our stay watching the world go by, within walking distance of the Latin Qtr where there is no shortage of fantastic restaurants that are reasonably priced.

While the rooms are small - and even taking that into account, some better than others (and the tiny elevator can mean if you're on a non-walk-up floor that you sometimes have to wait for someone else) - they're clean, things work, the staff is helpful, the location is decent, the breakfast is fine, etc. Hey, it's Paris, so if...

We were in a room overlooking the main street, straight down towards the river and Notre Dame. Although we couldn't see them we knew they were there, so close. The room was minute, my husband and I were unable to move around the bed at the same time and we are not big people. The shower, bathroom in general was... More

So close to Notre Dame and great restaurants! Make sure to specify if you want two twin beds. Also the breakfast is not free, it's about €9 and my group wasn't told it wasn't free upon arrival. They do provide a storage area for luggage. Overall a clean good place to stay for cheap.

The hotel is in the Latin Quarter near two metro stations and many cafes and restaurants. The staff is wonderful-very helpful with directions and anything you need. We had been warned in advance to expect a small room, but it was so tiny that it was a good thing we weren't in it much! We had to live out of... More

We stayed at Hotel Minerve after the neighbouring hotel, Hotel Familia, refused to take our credit card because it was 'suspicious'. Minerve had no problems with our card (which has been used for bookings before without any problems). The hotel was beautiful, we were in a double room on the 6th floor and it was gorgeous, very lovely 18th century... More

Hotels hotels hotels. What's important? How many hundreds have I stayed in? Very few will stick in my mind. Being new to Tripadvisor I discover I have to write the reviews quickly before I forget the distinctive features of each hotel and they all merge into a fog. But this one I will remember for the honesty of one of... More

We enjoyed the room; it was very clean and comfortable, although small. Our children loved the little nook where one sofa bed was; we had to squeeze in the second fold out bed as they both needed to be in the nook! The bathroom was clean and pleasant and we all had great showers. We didn't eat breakfast at the... More

Average hotel. Location is good but do not expect anything fancy. Hallways smell strange. Showers are tiny and I am a small female. Reception was ok but you have to ask as they will not volunteer information. Did not have breakfast as there is a bakery across the street for half the price. Be very cautious about booking a shuttle... More
