The room was very cosy, it was luminous and the beds were super comfortable. The only problem was that the bathroom was very small, but it must be a French thing. Desk attention was excellent, they were very attentive and polite, specially Jessica and Moutima. Breakfast was very complete and varied, including toast, pancakes, Nutella, fruit and cereal. The hotel... More

Spend a few nights at this hotel with my family (2 Adults, 3 kids). We were in a large room off the the ground floor reception area. A roll-away bed was added to accommodate all the kids. Room was spacious and en-suite was large but this may be due to fact that room was disable accessible (which didn't bother us... More

Have just returned from a 3 night stay at L'Hotel Observatoire on our first trip to Paris. I could have chosen one of the 'chain' hotels, instead decided on a private boutique hotel. I am so glad that I did. Tripadvisor helped me make the choice and such a high rating for a 3 star hotel had to be significant... More

Not too expensive and nice. The hotel is in the heart of the Latin Quartier. The rooms are very small but this is usual in Paris. First of all it is located just over the metro and the train station from Charles De Gaulle airport!

The hotel is a lovely small hotel across the street from the Luxembourg Gardens. The location is great - it is walking distance to the Seine and Lourve in one direction and in the other there are all of the fantastic restaurants along Montparnasse. All the rooms are moderately sized (particularly for Paris). There was free wifi in all of... More

My wife and I spent three nights here over a wet December week-end. We chose a Deluxe Room overlooking the gardens of the Institute for Young Deaf People. Our tariff included the mini bar which was topped up daily. The room was typically small for Paris but tastefully furnished and comfortable with good sized bathroom and shower. Our only criticism...

Stayed four night June 2014. Rooms were small but nicely decorated and the staff were all very professional and kind. Located a 5 minute walk from the Luxembourg Gardens, it's a nice location for the area but you do have to travel further out to see the main sights, however, there is a metro stop right across the street.

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.
