The Hotel Minerve was perfect for our Paris stay. My husband and I stayed in the triple-room with our teenage son. The hotel was very clean, the staff was VERY nice and helpful (and spoke English), and the location is perfect. The rooms were a normal size (small) for Paris hotel, but comfortable. Great value!

While this hotel was recommended by travel books and sites, it was bad. The smell of urine was in the carpet throughout the hotel. I had to go buy incense to cover the smell in our room, which was very small. We had a scenic view of 3 walls, and when I dropped the soap in the shower, I had...

This hotel was exactly what we needed and expected. The staff was very nice and helpful, spoke English. Our last day a gentleman checking out wanted the receptionist's name so he could follow up with a letter and I heard her tell him, it was her pleasure to help him, he needn't send the letter. She said that was 'her...

This hotel was exactly what I was looking for...a clean hotel that was reasonably priced. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They speak English. This was my first visit to Paris so I was going off of the reviews that I had read on tripadvisor.com. My mother and I each had a single bed room (90 Euros a night)....

We just returned from a 10 day stay at Hotel Minerve located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, just a short walk to Notre Dame and many other visitor sites. Also near Metro. Hotel is clean. Room was small - like most in the area - bed comfortably firm. Breakfast and serving staff also wonderful. The staff at the...

Stayed for 4 nights on vacation, on the recommendation of a friend and other reviews here. Typically small rooms, but very clean, with friendly and helpful staff. We had a room on the small courtyard in the back which was exceptionally quiet compared to the rooms facing the busy Rue des Ecoles. Continental breakfast was exceptional. Considering the location (about...

It was a lovely stay at the Minerve Hotel with its nice interior! Location was central as well. Would certainly choose to stay there again if we head to Paris!

I stayed here for about a week with a friend. The hotel was in an ideal location, metros very close, close to the Luxembourg Gardens which we frequented to people watch!

We stayed here around 18 months ago, and whilst it's not the most amazing hotel in the world, it has a great wee charm. So much so, I ended up proposing on our room's balcony which overlooked the latin quarter and Notre Dame. Hence, it was booked again as part of our honeymoon - same room in fact! So it...

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.
