Having read all of the negative reviews online, I had really low expectations for this hotel (which my penny-pinching husband had booked). And because of my low expectations, I was happy with the hotel. Is it up-to-date? No. The wallpaper, the flooring, the bathroom fixtures - everything is old (and in some cases patched together with packing tape and cardboard... More

The kind of hotel that feels like it should charge by the hour. Dirty, dirty, dirty! I was so afraid I would get bedbugs at this vile hotel. Big stains at carpet and bed linen, dirty and incredibly small bathroom and overall smelly and dated. Hotel manager is horribly unpleasant and is constantly barking at you in french. They force...

This hotel is in an excellent location. However, we unfortunately were placed on the street side, first floor. The room was large by European standards, but not particularly clean. The worst part was the noise! We didn't sleep all night. We were so close to the street, we thought the bused were coming thorough our room. We left after 1... More

Good location but that is all. Was afraid I was going to get bed bugs, the pillows had clean sheets and covers but they smelt as if the pillos were 50 years old. Dusty blankets and bed covers that hadnt been changed or possibly washed for years. Cleaners wake you up every morning around 10am - no way of putting... More

I can't really add much to what other reviewers have written other than to say "Believe the good reviews and forget the few others," but a couple of specifics might help readers. The convenient Quartier Latin is also extensive —and the Gay-Lussac is well-situated at the southern edge of quartier: a five-minute [or less] walk from the Luxembourg RER station... More

If you're traveling through Paris, you really just want a safe place to throw your stuff, and rest and shower every day. It should also have wi-fi! Gay-Lussac hotel fits the bill. Very simple rooms, mine had a tiny bathroom, but that's what this city is like if you don't want to spend too much. The important thing is the... More

Family-run boutique hotel at Quartier Latin, 2 blocks away from Jardins du Luxembourg, St. Michel Ave. and metro. Very close to Panthéon, Sorbonne and St. Germain. Diverse bistrots around. Bus stop at its very door. Small room and bath, but big windows opening to balcony overlooking charming neighborhood. Good breakfast offer included. Excellent WiFi.

Very basic but pleasant hotel in the Latin Quarter near the Sorbonne, the Law School, and the Pantheon, and only a few blocks from Luxembourg Gardens and the metro. Walkable to the Seine, Ile de la cite, and Notre Dame. Very clean rooms, a charming balcony overlooking the street, and a friendly staff who are very accommodating. The room décor... More

The location of the hotel was terrific, just few minutes walking from Pantheon. For being that central the price was quite convenient. However, the place wasn't very clean. The wi-fi connection, which was crucial for me as I was travelling for work, was very poor and when I complained about it, they just shrugged.

Comfortable, clean, cozy old hotel with a Fourth Republic aura; ideal for those on a budget but who really want to stay in the Latin Quarter. A bit hidebound but in a charming way (they don't do third-party bookings), you can still either get a complete hotel room or one where you share w/c and/or shower. Breakfast is ample for... More

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.
