The hotel is clean and in a great location - really all you need for a stay in Paris. The room was however, extremely small. I know this is common in Paris, but it was difficult enough with two people and two suitcases. The plumbing left a little to be desired - the toilet took about 3 attempts to flush... More

I'm not saying it's inconvenient due to location, the location is great! However, there are a few crucial things missing in get room. First of all, there's no plug in the bathroom. For a woman, this is a slight issue. I don't know how any woman would get ready without being able to plug something in. Secondly, the blow dryer... More

The room was very comfortable - the computer in the room was a real bonus for checking out the local attractions. Several reviews of the hotel warned the rooms could be small but to be honest this was not an issue at all. The location of the hotel was excellent - the room being at street level and we did...

smallest elevator i have ever seen, husband and i had to go up separately with one piece of luggage each, lol. Room was small but comfortable, bathroom the same. Very good location, directly across from the Sorbonne and a very short walk to the Seine and notre dame, cafes just down the street.

I recently spent a few days at the hotel. Facilities as were as described. I had suffered the loss of my wallet on the metro earlier in the week and wasn't feeling too good about Paris and its people. It was the staff at the hotel who helped restore my faith in human nature. They were so friendly and helpful... 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.
