I really loved this place. Stylish boutique hotel, very close to Luxembourg gardens, RER B station Luxembourg (direct to Gare du Nord and Roissy airport). Clean rooms, rather spacious for Paris :) Good breakfast, friendly stuff and good location.

This was my first trip to Paris and Hotel Gay-Lussac was the perfect location. We could walk to Notre Dame in 20 minutes or the metro in 3 minutes to get anywhere we wanted to go. There is a bakery next door or another one down the street with the best chocolate croissants I have every had in my entire...

I would second the comments of TravelFranceOnline. A boutique hotel with a friendly staff and a good location. To be more helpful, I would only add that breakfast is optional, eight euros/adult and four euros/child. It is store bought but still good.

The hotel Gay-Lussac is what we call a ‘boutique hotel”, but it’s quite tricky to assess it as so many contradictory elements come together! The descriptive says that the same family has run it for a few decades. It shows; the hotel is in need of TLC. The room I booked had a newly installed bathroom, modern and clean. The...

The hotel is well located close to a number of train stations and a 5min walk to Luxembourg gardens, about 20mins to notre dame and close to alot of great cafes/restaurants in the latin quarter. The room whilst in need of some refurbishment was clean and comfortable. It was a sizeable room and had a good sized bathroom, desk, tv...

A family run hotel in the heart of the buzzing Latino quarter within walking distance of many bars and restaurants. The hotel is basic but clean and the beds are comfortable. Helpful staff. We'll certainly be back.

Had two nights here with the grandchildren, and booked a family room to sleep four of us. There was a double bed and two singles, and a shower room en-suite. It was probably a magnificent building at one time, but these days it looks like it could do with a little tlc. As seasoned travellers it was OK for us,...

Stayed in this hotel for one night. It was very good value for money. The place was clean and quite spacious considering the price. Obviously it was not 4stars but it was not 4stars prices either. There were 11 of us, most agreed with this.

This is a sweet little hotel in a great location in central Paris. For that area, it is a really decent price, and I liked the old Parisian style of the building. Fair enough, it isn't a luxury hotel, but it is clean and comfortable, and the staff are friendly.

After reading a lot of bad comments here, I still decided to try it. The location as said could not be better. Latin quartier with a lot of things going on in the evening, best night life in Paris. Close to many cafes, luxembourg park and 5 min walking to the train station. My room was very clean, could not...

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.
