The 6 Best Boutique Hotels In The Latin Quarter

Winding cobblestone streets, the Sorbonne, the dome of the Pantheon… this is the historic 5th Arrondissement, one of the oldest and most delightful neighborhoods in Paris. Known as the Latin Quarter, the neighborhood is named after the medieval scholars who studied at the Sorbonne university, where the language of discourse and courses was Latin.

Today, many famous attractions are found in the arrondissement — from the the Pantheon to the Cluny Museum, from the markets on Rue Mouffetard to the zoo at Jardin des Plantes. And the quartier borders on other famous sites like the Jardin du Luxembourg, Notre Dame, and Saint-Germain-de-Pres. Here is where you'll find some of our top recommended hotels in the city — all of them with good travelers reviews, close proximity to the Metro, and full of charm.

Hotel des Grand Hommes

Hotel des Grands Hommes

You won't go wrong with this popular Latin Quarter hotel.

First of all, the location is fantastic — right in front of the Pantheon on the place. In fact, the hotel is named after the famous French men (and two women) who are buried in this monument.

It's close to so many must-visit places — Jardin du Luxembourg is just down the hill, Rue Mouffetard (the market street) is just around the corner, and the famous English-language bookstore, Shakespeare and Company, is only nine minutes away on foot.

Travelers can't seem to get enough of this winning Paris hotel, and for good reason.

Mercure Paris La Sorbonne

Mercure Paris La Sorbonne

Located smack dab between Jardin du Luxembourg and the Cluny Museum (the National Museum of the Middle Ages), and a five-minute walk to each, this hotel features air-conditioned rooms, rare for Paris!

An easy walk from Metro Cluny-La Sorbonne gets you to this serene hotel. Despite being in one of the most bustling neighborhoods of Paris, this hotel is on a quiet street and perfect for restful sleeps.

Great staff, very helpful and amazing (all of them)… They were very patient to all of my questions every day. Location was very close to Saint Michel and La Sorbonne Metro stations and it took me 20 minutes on RER express from CDG airport… The location is perfect and quiet… Definitely great value for money… Central location near to all attractions: Notre Dame, Pantheon, Luxembourg gardens 5 – 10 minutes from the hotel!!! …I will back next time to this hotel for sure!"

Seven Hotel Paris

Seven Hotel Paris

Is the Seven Hotel two better than the Five Hotel ?

Perhaps not, but this recommended accommodation is located on an unexpected little street a bit farther out in the 5th and this revamped hotel shouts out Trendy Design. Consider, for instance, the Levitation rooms, with seemingly suspended beds and fiber-optics lighting.

Each of the hotel's room and suites are cleverly designed around a theme: Alice, 007, Suspended Bath. And each one is a bit of ultimate design experience. If you're in the mood for romance, check in to the Marie Antoinette Suite with a canopy bed, a boudoir and clawfoot tub and shower.

Perfect Paris. The hotel is clean and stylish — in a French way — with a lot of transparencies, reflections and trendy kitsch. It is also somehow sexy and contains a lot of well-thought details and character. A great stay."

Hotel Les Dames du Panthéon

Hotel du Pantheon

Back to reality and back to the Place du Pantheon and another charming hotel in the heart of the 5th Arrondissement.

The Hotel du Pantheon is set in a 17th-century building just across from the Pantheon itself and five minutes away from the Luxembourg Gardens.

We love the mix of antique furniture, fresh fabrics, period woodwork, and exposed beams, as well as the recent upgrade. And, if you book a superior room, you'll be rewarded with an amazing view of the Pantheon and be able to see across the rooftops to Sacre-Coeur, on the other side of Paris. All rooms have air conditioning.

Lovely hotel, romantic, with a boutique feel. Great Location. The deluxe room with the view of the Pantheon was wonderful, plush decoration, very opulent and romantic. Great location, a short walk to everything. Found a fab eatery just around the corner… staff friendly. Can't fault."

Hotel d'Aubusson

Hotel d'Aubusson

Just a few steps away from the Seine and Île de la Cité, this 4-star hotel is in one of the most ancient parts of Paris, at the location of one of the earliest walls surrounding the city.

Crossing the Seine on the city's oldest bridge (called, oddly enough, Pont Neuf or "New Bridge"), it's a 10-minute leisurely stroll to the Louvre. On the way you'll pass the triangular jewel of a park, Place Dauphine. Want to stop in at Notre Dame? No problem, it's just beyond the place.

The hotel was originally a 17th-century mansion and has been refurbished to luxurious standards. Some rooms overlook the courtyard.
