This hotel is a perfect place to stay when traveling with family in Paris. I was traveling with my daughter and her best friend last summer and they gave us a spacious room with 3 beds. It's located near two Metro stops and is within walking distance of the Latin quarter. The staff was very helpful and there are shops,... More

When searching you will realise budget accommodation is hard to find and although still more then i would prefer to pay, it offered a comfortable stay in a good location.

I called ahead asking for a view of the Arènes, and was welcomed by Salah, the lovely hotel manager, with the news that I had a surprise waiting. My sister was with me just for one night, so we had been given a large corner room, plus a fantastic view, with three beds! The Arènes is perfect for a picnic... More

It's a small hotel but it's very very clean and has all you need during the stay. The room is clean and relatively new I would say but the size of the Double room is abit small and doesnt allow you to open up your 29" luggage, it will have to be standing all the time if you want walking... More

My wife and I had stayed at the Hôtel des Arènes in 2014 and enjoyed our stay there so much that we stayed there for five nights on our trip to Paris in 2016. We really appreciated its location in the Latin Quarter – a quick walk to almost everywhere we wanted to go. When we made our reservation, we... More

A lovely little hotel, clean, comfortable and welcoming. Walking distance to major attractions ( Notre Dame & Siene ). Outstanding service from one staff member in particular ( Jacob ) who made our stay so much more memorable. This was a family vacation and we had a large room that could accommodate three of us comfortably. While we were there... More

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.
