3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

The stay at the Hotel Design Sorbonne was quite nice. The location is great, close to the RER B to the airport and the Odeon Station and a few more. The hotel is very cute and cozy. the decor is stylish and quirky. The rooms and halls are quite small, with 2 adults and luggage it can get a little... More

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

Stayed at this hotel for three days in June. The location was great, walking distance to Luxembourg, Notre Dame and many restaurants and cafes nearby. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, especially Rene. The hotel reminded me of a quaint Bed and Breakfast, and very clean and modern décor. My room was small, but that was ok because the...

Quirky little hotel off Boulevard Saint Michel - near Place de la Sorbonne and served by RER to Luxembourg. Walking distance to left bank for tourist bars and restaurants.

Excellent boutique hotel in a fabulous location right beside the Sorbonne college. Very small rooms but great decor, an excellent place to lay your head. Quiet hotel, off the main street, its an ideal base to view all the major sights of Paris. We did not add breakfast as it was very expensive and there are many cafe's around offering... More

Pleasant hotel right next to la Sorbonne. There's a nice square a few yards away with some nice bars and restaurants. Great service, good English spoken. Room was well-furnished but teeny-weeny tiny. Bathroom even smaller.

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.
