This was our second stay at Hotel des Carmes in the Latin Quarter of Paris and we were once again delighted with this lovely 2 star hotel. It is very well located, quiet (on a one way street), 1 minute walk to nearest metro (Maubert Matualite) lots of cafes and restaurants, a supermarket and laundry nearby.
We stayed 6 nights and found to staff to be friendly and professional. They spoke English but were patient and encouraging when we attempted to converse in our limited French. Our room had a street view with the Pantheon up the road and Bd. Saint-Germain at the other end. Very easy to walk to Notre Dame just across the river. They have free internet access and can organise an airport shuttle. We plan to stay again on our next trip to Paris.

Room Tip: Ask for a street view room (although on the road it is only a one way street and is quiet.)

A nice budget hotel not to be in during the month of July: too hot, without air conditioning.

Room Tip: rooms are small but alright, except for the fact that they do not have air conditioning, unless they...

Stayed here on the last leg of our Europe trip from a recommendation of friends and we loved it! Staff we so lovely and helpful, area was beautiful to walk around, 5 mins from Notre Dame.
Stayed in a Superior room with a street view, and it was very roomy and comfortable! Very quiet at night for a comfortable sleep.
Overall a great stay!

Look out your balcony one way and see Notre Dame, turn the other way and see the Pantheon. For a very reasonable price you get a charming room in Paris' Latin Quarter. Just up the block from a Metro stop, cute shops selling wine, bread, cheese. Your room will be small but not tiny. Everything is clean. It is relatively quiet. When you arrive you will have a smiling face ready to help you with everything you need. If you need something, just ask. They try to do their best to accommodate you. We started with Hotel des Carmes years ago after a recommendation from friends, and keep coming back. If they are full ask for information on Hotel St Jacques, just up the street, that has an affiliation with Hotel des Carmes.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room overlooking Rue des Carmes. If you are a single and want to save money the ro...

Stayed in this charming hotel for 3 nights - 2 nights in a room with street view and 1 night at courtyard. I like the streetview room best - with uphill view to the magnificent Pantheon and downhill view with shops leading to Notre Dame. The rooms are basic, clean and the price is reasonable. Wifi is free, and most importantly, the staff on the front desk are always very friendly and always ready to offer us help with great recommendations! On our last day, we had to leave very early at 6.30am, while waiting for the taxi to pick us up, the staff even offer us a cup of coffee, a nice gesture that warm our hearts!
We also love the location - 5minutes walk to nearest metro which bring you to all sightseeing places, walking distance to the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens, Sainte-Chapelle, Louvre etc etc., wide variety of restaurants and eateries in the Latin Quarter (even at late night). what more can one ask for......
I will definitely be staying at Hotel Des Carmes again when I go back to Paris!

I booked Hotel des Carmes on the recommendation of a friend who had stayed there over 10yrs ago and I wasn't disappointed.

Our room was cosy but clean and with air-conditioning. If I have one complaint it would be there was no mini bar in our room which would've been handy to put our food in.

The staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way to provide recommendations for dinner and sight seeing spots. We even saved ourselves an expensive taxi fare to the train station on the advice to catch the bus instead - which all worked out fine.

This hotel is nothing fancy but if you're looking for a quiet well run place to rest your head close to everything including one of Paris's best cheese shop then I highly recommend it.
