This was our second visit (last time in 2003). We liked it so much back then we decided to return in 2016 this past July. The room was smaller than the one we had before, and the facility did seem slightly careworn, but everything was quiet (even though we were relatively close to the front lobby) and comfortable, and the...

One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. Quiet charm and elegance. Friendly service. Lovely room with bath and long windows looking into the garden.To step off a Paris street into a secluded garden was balm to the soul. Paris is an exillerating place to visit, but one needs a retreat between expeditions.

Chose this hotel on the recommendation of Rick Steves. It was amazing to walk up a city street and open a 12 foot door and see a large garden inside. It is a beautiful hotel. The rooms were quaint and very comfortable. There was no air conditioning but we opened the window over looking the garden which sufficed. The location... More

This hotel is tucked away--at first I wasn't sure I liked being that far from central Paris--but in the end, I loved it. The garden is so lovely for a little quiet in the evening after a busy day of sight seeing. The rooms are cute and ours was quite nice. I would recommend staying on the first floor rather... More

After a decade of trying to fit this hotel into our itinerary, we finally succeeded. Our room was actually larger than anticipated, had a full bath, and was quite clean. Not having a television was a plus to us; the wi-fi worked perfectly, as did the elevator. The staff was more than attentive, providing a much-appreciated fan without our asking... More

A favorite over the years - simple, unaffected. It is hard to believe this retreat is so close to the madding crowds. Close to the Place Monge market, the food shops of Rue Mouffetard, the Sorbonne. But so far away. What it lacks in amenities (a plus), it makes up in charm

We booked five nights here while we were in Paris with family. The room was small but not uncomfortable. The problem was the closet. We were staying too long to live out of a suitcase and with only six hangers and about 15 inches of space I had to double and triple hang all our clothes. The rest had to... More

The hotel itself is well located and has a charming courtyard but it's another story for the rooms. Our room (250) was on 3td floor. It had no elevator, we could only see the building across the alley AND the room's wallpaper was old and stained. Moreover, the hallway's carpets and wallpaper were torn and stained. Finally, the wifi was... More

We stayed here from May 8-12 2016. It is a lovely hotel in the 5th district. I loved the 5th district and felt very safe there. The bed was very comfortable with a big bathroom and plenty of room for clothes and everything else. WONDERFUL breakfast and well worth the $19 euros. Freshly baked croissants with jam, butter, choice of... More

This hotel was suggested by a friend and I was not disappointed. The hotel is close to the Rue Mouffetard that is a market street that it is not open on Sundays and Monday. There are metro stations close by but one can easily walk to the Seine River, Cathédrale Notre-Dame or the Louvre. The room is small but cozy,... 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.
