We stayed here last summer (2009) in August. It was very hot and there was no air-con so the room was hot, even at night. The location is good. I HIGHLY recommend room 251 if you are 3 or more. There is a curtain you can draw for a bit of privacy for and from teenagers! It's at the front...

We knew we were going to a 3 star hotel in the centre of a big city so were delighted to find the beautiful garden that leads up to the entrance of this hotel. We found the staff helpful, offering for us to leave our bags in our room on arrival even though we'd arrived very early (midday) and the...

What a great location. Two blocks to a Metro station, short walk to the Seine, Ile St. Louis, Norte Dame,the Bastille & Blvd. St. Germaine. Only 51 rooms, but off main streets and rooms are around a courtyard where you can relax out doors - yes there are tables & chairs to do this. The staff were friendly and accomodating....

I cannot add more to the many positive descriptions of this hotel, other than to note that among people we know who have visited in Paris, nobody else raves about their hotel and enthusiastically recommends it the way we do the Hotel des Grandes Ecoles. I just wanted to say that while a number of reviewers have recommended seeking breakfast...

My stay was magnificent - from my Courtyard "Blue Room" to the cobblestones and secluded garden and the friendly service, it was all great! Some reviews say there are no cafes or shops nearby: they must'nt have walked 5 mins up the hill where there's a gorgeous piazza with fabulous cafes and a little road filled with restaurants including the...

A lovely hotel, beautifully appointed and well kept. Fabulous staff. We felt at home immediately. The courtyard and garden add a natural and relaxing element to the day. Coffee and croissants in the dining room cozy and nice. Great neighborhood to hang out in and also convenient to all Paris. Excellent, can't wait to return.

What a wonderful hotel in a great location. Loved the hotel, loved the location, would highly recommend. Travelled with my wife and grown up daughter and chose this hotel from Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived the service was first class. Room was quite large and well maintained and all staff were extremely friendly...

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour 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 neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
