Stayed at the Hotel Minerve from June 26 through the 29th. Great location in the Latin Quarter - 2 minute walk to the metro station and a 5-10 minute walk to Notre Dame. Quite a few shops up and down the Rue Des Ecoles, including a little patisserie that we frequently used just across the street. We were put in... More

My teenage daughter and I spent four nights at the Minerve Hotel in late May, 2007. We had actually wanted to stay at the Famile Hotel next door, but as it was booked out, and as it is run by the same family, they suggested the Minerve. We arrived from Australia at about 8.30am seriously jet-lagged after 23 hours flying.... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Minerve in April of 2006. We had been living in Southern France and traveled here for the weekend. It was a great place to stay and really worth the money spent. Compared to other hotels in France that are of that price, this was fantastic. We took the bus only once because everything... More

Free WiFi, excellent desk staff, air conditioning, reasonable sized room, steps to Notre Dame, quiet - it had everything we were looking for. While this location may not have the 'cool' factor of some other places, we found it very convenient and comfortable. It was easy to use the Metro, plus we had lots of great sights and restaurants within... More

We are a couple in our early 30's and went as a Spring treat. The hotel was clean and comfortable and we had a beautiful view from our 6th floor "deluxe" room balcony. "Deluxe" is not what it would be in the UK, but simple and adequate for sleeping in! It was freezing in Paris when we were there, but... More

Paris, Minerve Hotel, A Home Away from Home I've been coming to the Minerve each year for the last eight years, so I consider it in many ways a home away from home. I've found the staff to be extremely helpful and the owner, Eric Gaucheron, eager to solve problems. One example: when I checked in a couple of years... More

We are traveling abroad in Europe and decided about 2 weeks beforehand to visit Paris. Not such a good plan considering that we are traveling with 2 small children and finding a hotel in Paris that can accomodate 4 people is very difficult! We consulted Trip Advisor as usual for its great job recommending family hotels. After calling 8-10 hotels... More

We enjoyed 3 nights at the Minerve and experienced friendly and knowledgeable service, cozy and well kept rooms and a perfect balcony overlooking the Rue de Ecoles (definitely ask for a room with a balcony!) The Latin Quarter is an excellent location to explore from. The area is not too busy or noisy, but has good bakeries, restaurants and many... More

Hotel Minerve was a great pick! I was very happy with my stay there. The location was perfect, easy walk to Notre Dame, shopping, and several metro stops. I felt very safe in the neighborhood, important for a single female traveler! The hotel itself was charming and well-kept. My superior double room was very small, which is pretty standard for...

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.
