First I must say that the rooms are really very small. In the regular room, the only space you have in the room is the litte area around the bed that allow you to move around. There is no empty space in the floor where you could open a smal luggage. If you don't mind the space, this is a...

I liked this hotel, however the rooms are much smaller then other Paris hotels I've stayed at. I wanted to change but they wouldn't accommodate. It is still a quaint cute little place. Just know that you will be in a small room.

My wife and I stayed here in the summer of 2015, and again in January 2017. Yes, the elevator is small and the rooms are small (especially the cheaper ones), but this is Paris! The neighborhood is out of the tourist section, but very easy to get to and not far from the Seine. Right by the dramatic Sorbonne University....

Great little boutique hotel with charming and helpful staff. The rooms are small but perfectly formed and the hotel location is great, right opposite the Sorbonne University and a gentle stroll from restaurants (e.g. Coupchou, La Procope), brasseries (e.g. Brasserie Balzar) and cafes, including Les Deux Magots (nothing to do with maggots in english, don't be fooled) on Boulevard St...

I've made it a practice whenever possible to go to hotels that claim to be 'Design Hotels'. In this case, there was not so much emphasis on design, but it was still quirky and pleasant. Excellent breakfasts. One downside was need to enter a different code for wifi each day. Most design hotels have worked out that they can just...

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.
