We stay here last year. Great location for shopping and the nearby gardens. It's a bit of a distance to some of the other tourist attractions. Most adults could walk to Notre Dame and a few other attractions. Most of the museums and the Eiffel would require a boat, bus or taxi. The hotel appeared to have recently been remodeled.... More

Stayed for 2 nights and loved it. Chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Musee Luxembourg but discovered some great restaurants in St Germain des Pres and could walk back after. Although the rooms are compact they have everything and are beautifully decorated. My wife thought the magnifying mirror was excellent. So accessible from the Gare du Nord... More

We returned to Hotel Observatoire for a long w-end. This time, we booked a superior room, as we wanted to celebrate. Unfortunately, the room was not much more bigger, it looked exactly the same as the standard one and it was on the road-side, so during the night we could hear some perceivable noise. The staff was as friendly and... More

The hotel is suitably located just a few steps from Luxembourg metro station, 40 mins from Orly airport. Walking distance to Cite island, just 5-7 mins. Straight across the road there is a fabulous Luxembourg garden, where you can have your morning coffee or just your evening motion. A few restaurants around, the one is right at the hotel, which...

Stayed at this fabulous, romantic hotel with my fiance in March. The location is superb. From CDG Airport, take the RER B train, that stops right in front of the hotel (Metro stop: "Luxembourg") - it is convenient and will cost you a fraction of a taxi fare. For sightseeing, take a bus across the street and get off at... More

This is my second stay at this hotel, and the staff is as wonderful and helpful as always. The location of the hotel is great. Spend a little more and get one of the bigger rooms. It's great having the cafe downstairs for breakfast and/or dinner when tired. Would stay again.

We only stayed one night, but we were very impressed. The room was a normal size for Paris, very clean and nicely decorated. Staff very friendly. I was a little nervous that our room overlooked boulevard st michel which is a main road, but was pleased with how quiet it was. Extremely easy access from Gare du Nord.

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.
