In The Latin Quarter

Hotels in Paris-Latin Quarter

Trendy, upbeat and centrally located, some of the best hotels in are found in the picturesque Latin Quarter.

It's one of our favorite places to be in the city because you're close to so many attractions — like the Pantheon, Jardin du Luxembourg and even Notre Dame, just across the river.

Latin Quarter usually refers to the 5th Arrondissement, but it does spill into the 6th as well. Check out the hotels we like.

Left Bank Hotels

The shopping is fabulous and it's where you find our fave department store, Le Bon Marché . You're close to the Eiffel Tower, Musée d'Orsay and the famous Boulevard Saint Germain. To learn more read our guide to hotels in the 6th & 7th Arrondissements.

Just outside Paris is the happiest place sur la terre!

Although Disneyland is close enough to Paris for an easy day trip, if you want the full experience you'll stay a day or two. For that you'll want a nearby hotel.

There are quite a few hotels in the area, but we prefer to choose one that's either in Disneyland or attached to it. Check out our recommendations.

Discover a Paris secret. Apartment hotels combine the best of an apartment and a hotel with more space, kitchens, a front desk and daily cleaning.

Apartment hotels are a good choice if you are visiting the City of Light with your family.

The Best places to Stay in Paris

If this is your first trip to Paris you'll probably want to stay in the center of things. So you'll want to choose one of the hotels we recommend that is located in a neighbourhood to the Seine.

We suggest the 1st Arrondissement, the 2nd Arrondissement, the 3rd, the 4th, the 5th or the 6th Arrondissements. Also consider areas of the 8th, 16th and 17th.

Of course there are lots of other great neighborhoods in Paris, from the 9th to the 20th Arrondissements. You can learn more about Paris neighborhoods in the Paris Insiders Guide to Paris Arrondissements »
