My second trip to Paris; this time with my teenage daughter. The hotel was great, definitely felt like we were in Paris and not a generic hotel. we loved it. The neighborhood is terrific with lots of shops and restaurants. Directly across the street from the Sorbonne and very easy access to the metro. Very close to many attractions including... More

We stayed at the Hotel Design Sorbonne for 3 nights in November 2016. The hotel is ideally situated in the Latin Quarter, within a 5 minute walk of Luxembourg RER station, which serves Orly airport, Charles de Gaulle airport, and Gare du Nord. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, and spoke very good English when my slightly rusty French... More

My partner & I were travelling to Paris for our first anniversary and had selected this hotel mainly for its location. We arrived before check-in and were welcomed by the receptionist on duty.

We had a very nice stay at the Boutique Hotel Sorbonne in the Latin Quarter situated in a quiet street. The rooms have recently been renovated to a very nice and modern design.

Original Review: If you are looking for good service don't look here. When we arrived there was no hot water but they happily let us check in and did not advise us of this.

I wouldn’t have thought it possible to have good memories of a hotel where there was no hot water in the bathroom, the TV was transmitted via a Mac, with resulting screen freeze on a regular basis, and where the orange juice, muesli and fruit ran out at breakfast. I suspect that this hotel appeals more to the young, as... More

My friend and I stayed here for a 3.5 day trip. The room we stayed in was small with a small bathroom (which is rather common for Europe-though the bathroom was so close to the bed you had to turn on the tv and push up the volume so as not to hear the person using the bathroom).

This hotel is very well designed and in a great location, not too far from attractions and good restaurants. Just a couple of things to be aware of: first off, it's right across the street from Paris-Sorbonne University, so keep in mind that during the weekday you may encounter crowds of students. They weren't wild and crazy college kids, but... 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.
