    This hotel in on the same street as The Sorbonne. While the room was very small, it was clean with daily room service, and very reasonably priced. Plus the elevator was great as we had been lugging heavy suitcases up numerous hotel steps during our visit. The staff is helpful and on duty 24 hours. Wonderful breakfast is available for... More

    It was a luxury to be able to take a lift to the fifth floor in Paris! Tiny room and bathroom, but bright, stylish and clean. Our teenage son had a room next door to ours. Our room had a view of the smaller dome of the Sorbonne. Lovely location, between St Michel and St. Germain des Pres. The nearby... More

    Perfectly located with really helpful and friendly staff; good value for money. Rooms are small but that seems to be standard in Paris and not really a problem at all. Liked the apple tv and wi-fi. Will definitely return.

    This is a quirky small hotel with friendly, interested staff. Yes, the rooms are small but that's Paris folks! The location is great - a short walk from Luxembourg RER/Met direct from CDG, the Gardens, the Pantheon, the Cluny Museum, the dense Latin quarter, the river and Notre Dame. Give the 14Euro brekkie a miss, better value elsewhere, but apart... More

    I liked how close it was to a train station from Charles de Gaulle. Very friendly staff. I know rooms in Paris are small, but wow, this is really small. Felt a little claustrophobic. I wasn't in room much, so biggie. Room a little dark with the goth vibe.

    The hotel is a wonderful quiet location within easy walking distance to the river. The room was small but has everything you need, everything was clean and tidy and the staff were very helpful. Perfect base for a city break, it was my first trip to Paris and the next time I visit I would certainly book again.

    last minute booked on the hotel website for 1 night. Although i booked a superior room and expected a somewhat larger room than a classic one. The size of the room was incredibly small.

    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.
