This famous Left Bank neighborhood, so named because the numerous university students in the area spoke only Latin to their professors until the French Revolution, preserves an authentic Parisian atmosphere of old.

Perfect Place To Stay!!

We stayed at Minevre Hotel in the Latin Quarter and it was lovely. The place wasn't too noisy and a lot of good restaurants around. Lots of things to do within walking distance.

We did a walking tour with Paris Walks and were led by a knowledgeable and entertaining guide called John. For 12 euros each we were led through Latin Quarter to see places frequented by Ernest Hemingway and other authors. The tour ended in Rue Mouffetard near Square Saint-Médard and we enjoyed a very pleasant lunch at the Bistrot Le Mouffetard.

This is an excellent area to explore on foot. There is so much to see in this area, it boggles the mind. The bohemian feel and old-world architecture is a wonderful combination. You just want to stop, have a drink, people watch, and soak up the ambiance. I love this place. A must do is the little green topped kiosks/booths... More

I loved the pulse of the Latin Quarter. The cafes and restaurants were wonderful. It was not a quiet neighborhood so if quiet is what you want, don't stay here. It was easy to walk to many attractions such as Notre-Dame,the Louvre, the Seine walk, and the underground stations. I would want to stay in this area again.

Just stroll along the tall,narrow, winding streets of this quarter, taking in the atmosphere. Boulevard St Michel is now nothing more than a shopping street, but go behind it into rue de la Harpe, rue St Andre des Arts, rue de la Huchette, rue Mouffetard. Stop at a café and look up at the old houses. Visit the Pantheon, see... More

The Latin Quarter boasts international and somewhat artistic atmosphere as well as great and relatively cheap restaurants. Definitely worth a visit.

We loved staying in the Latin Quarter. Having the Batobus (canal ferry) stop nearby made it convenient to hop on and hop off at different locations. We loved the restaurants in the area and felt very safe here.

Staying in Odeon / Saint-Michel

Neighborhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
