Left Bank Hotels in Paris. When you imagine your dream hotel, you may well think about a Left Bank hotel in the City of Light.

The heart of the Left Bank – and its oldest quartier – is the Latin Quarter (5th Arrondissement). West of there is Saint-Germain-des-Pres (6th Arrondissement), then the 7th Arrondissement, home to the Eiffel Tower.
