The hotel is very well located, close to subway and RER stations and to taxi stands.Walking distance to the Pantheon, Boulevard Saint Germain and la Place de la Sorbonne. The staff is incredibly nice, polite and willing to help. The room was very clan and quiet.

My 20 year old daughter and I recently spent 4 nights at this hotel on our recent trip to Paris. The room and bath were small, as is typical in Paris, but was attractive and modern in design. The beds are exceptionally comfortable. The bathroom was modern and clean. My small complaint was that it was initially hard to adjust...

Room was modern and new decorated. There was a Mac desktop computer in the room with free WiFi. Staff was very helpful and smily. But if you are looking for spacious room, it is not for you, our room was around 14 square meter.

Had a comfortable stay, very friendly staff and the best part its closeness to the Metro stations Odeon and Cluny and the Luxembourg RER which connects directly to CDG airport. it is walking distance from Notre Dame and the Pantheon is a view from the room. Best is to take the either of the rooms on the sixth floor.

Only stayed here for one night but have zero complaints. Staff were kind enough to upgrade our room on arrival as the room we'd booked was not quite ready.

Full of appreciation of the breakfast staff, who really worked hard to get everything done. Everything was relatively small, as to be expected in the center of town. My room (27) would...

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.
