This hotel was a pleasant surprise. It was clean, comfortable and conveniently located handy to the metro and walking distance to bus stops. Our booking included breakfast which was very nice and suited our requirements. The rooms are not overly spacious which is of no surprise in Paris however we only required the room for sleeping and they are clean... More

My first stay in Paris, I found this hotel to be convenient and comfortable. In fact my only real disappointment with it was their billing me for breakfast when I didn't want it. It would gave been a little better if there were a mini frig or a hot plate, because the markets are so close - especially the Monoprix,... More

This quaint little hotel is centrally located in an interesting district, near the Sorbonne. It's very easy to walk wherever you want to go. I stayed in a single room and it was very tiny - but that is common and should be expected in Paris.

The hotel was nice and clean. The staff were all extremely pleasant. It is in a perfect area to stay in Paris close to everything you need. There's a supermarket across the street where you can buy everything! I see some complaints about the wi fi, it is not the best but it works. If you're in Paris on vacation... More

Our travel agent chose the hotel, but we would not stay here again. While a few blocks from the metro which was key, the actual hotel was run down. Our room had an angled ceiling with a cabinet in front of the angle--behind the cabinet in the space left, it was used as storage for junk-- old flower pots and... More

The room was very small, but clean and comfortable. It had a bed and a desk. We arrived in the late morning from the US and were told that we could not check in until 2. Out of principle, she wouldn't check in anyone until 2pm. She seemed surprised when we asked for a second room key, but did give... More

This is a basic 3 star Parisian hotel, with small rooms, simple breakfast and not so many amenities. The beds are comfortable, but I don't like the sheet and blanket instead of a duvet. The bathroom is clean and the shower great, but the towels are very worn and torn. The wifi is free and worked for me. The staff... More

It is a little cute hotel, very clean and confortable. The rooms are small but OK for Paris standards. There is a elevator, which is not easy to find in many hotels around Europe. The internet was very poor, the guy at the reception desk was very helpful and cheerful. The location is the best you can get in Paris,... More

We stayed two nights with three teenagers and wifi is essential for our brood. Unfortunately the free wifi did not work in our two rooms and we needed to go to the foyer if usage needed. Location good, rooms adequate and breakfast good. We found the hotel quiet and calm.

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.
