Good Accommodation In Latin Quarter

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 15, 2007

We had 3 enjoyable days in this 14 room hotel late May 2007. Our room was comfortable and a little larger than other rooms as it was on the 5th floor Attic. The lift went to the 4th floor and we had to walk the stairs.

We were happy with our room, included a small TV which we did not watch as we were out to 10pm each evening. The bathroom was compact and clean. Typical French breakfast was served daily at additional cost of E 8, orange juice, tea and coffee, rolls , yohgurt, cereals , jams etc.

Reception staff were very friendly and should you require directions they would give you a map and highlight the direction. Should you require transport to the airport just ask them to arrange.

Located in the Latin Quarter is a huge plus, just 10 minutes walk to the River Seine, Notre Damme and many other historic sights.

Directions: Latin Quarter, 100 metres from entry to Sorbonne University (University of Paris)

Boutique Hotel in the Latin Quarter

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 10, 2004

This hotel is right across the street from the Sorbonne University. It is in a very safe neighborhood and there are plenty of cafes and bookstores in the area. It is also only a couple blocks from the Cluny Museum. It is an easy walk to one RER and three Metro stations. It is a couple blocks to the Luxembourg Gardens and you can walk to Notre Dame, the Latin Quarter tourist area, the Louvre, Ste. Chapelle, the d'Orsay. Since they remodeled, the price has gone up considerably and it is no longer worth it to us but if you are looking for a boutique hotel in a terrific location, this may be for you.

Desk is staffed 24 hours a day and the staff speak English. They are very helpful and pleasant. A continental breakfast used to be 8 euros and the breakfast buffet is 13 euros but they no longer list the price on their web site. For breakfast we usually walk over to Paul's Boulangerie on rue de Buci because it's a particular favorite of ours.

The rooms are small but very clean. You have a telephone and hair dryer and plenty of closet space. I had no trouble hooking up my laptop and recharging camera batteries.

Unique Quality: You don't get a lot of amenities at this price, but you do get location, location, location. It is just half a block from the Place de la Sorbonne with busy cafes and shops and a fountain. Blvd. St. Michel is at the other end of the Place.

If you get a room in the front, you can actually see into the classrooms at the Sorbonne University across the street.

One desk clerk spent a goodly amount of time helping me find an adapter for my battery charger and then just loaned it to me on the honor system. They are all very pleasant. They offered to call to confirm our return flight. We did it ourselves, but it was nice of them to offer. We were very happy with the service there.

Update: The per person price is listed as 40-80 euros; however, they have remodeled and jacked up their prices. It varies wildly by season so the range would be per person 40 to 175 euros or thereabouts. Check Specials and Internet rates and even the booking.com web site and take the lowest rate.

Directions: Near the Luxembourg RER station. The Cluny-La Sorbonne Metro station is a few blocks away. Rue Victor Cousin is at the opposite end of Place de la Sorbonne from Blvd. St. Michel. Just walk to the end of the Place and turn right for one half block.

Great location, great price!

This hotel has a fantastic location near (you guessed it) the Sorbonne University. It is about 10 minutes walk to Saint Michel and Nore Dame and about 5 minutes to the Jardin de Luxembourg.

The rooms are small but clean and comfortable and very reasonably priced. The staff were warm and welcoming and of course they speak English as well as French.

My tip though would to be to search around on the internet for your room as there are some websites that offer better rates than if you bok direct.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a central location but doesn't want to pay the price for it!

Unique Quality: Location, location, location!

Small inexpensive room in the Latin Quarter

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 2, 2004

We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay over the peak period between Christmas and New Year's and settled on the 2 star Hotel de la Sorbonne. Over the holiday period it was 80E per night, reasonable in comparison to other rates being quoted.

The room was a typical small Parisian room with a reasonably comfortable bed, well heated with a small tv (only French programming). The decor was OK but not charming.

The bathroom was probably converted from a closet and couldn't have been more than 3 feet wide, you literally could not turn around in it with the door closed. The bathroom was equipped with a shower, hairdryer, soap and shampoo.

On day 2 of our stay the hot water heater broke and the shower had only cold water. It was still not fixed by evening so they moved us next door to the Hotel Cluny. I think they intended for us to pay for the night there but were quite disorganized and we ended up not paying for one night of our stay which was reasonable for a day without hot water and having to move twice.

Unique Quality: We liked the location on a quiet street near the Place de Sorbonne, a 5-10 minute walk from the Cluny Sorbonne metro and less than 5 minutes from the Luxemborg RER which was very convenient coming from CDG.

It was an easy walk to the Pantheon and the Cluny museum and not too far to Notre Dame.

Directions: Latin Quarter, within walking distance of Cluny Sorbonne or St. Michel metro or Luxemborg RER
