Where to Stay in Paris's Latin Quarter: 20 Wonderful Hotels & Apartments
Hotel Monge ★★★★
55 Rue Monge, next to Arenes de Lutece, 5th arrondissement
With airy nature-inspired contemporary decor mixed with a few vintage finds, luxuriously comfortable beds in its 30 guest rooms, and superb service, 4-star Hotel Monge offers an excellent location next to Arenes de Lutece and about a 5-minute walk from the Jardin des Plantes.
A short stroll brings you to Rue Mouffetard, the Latin Quarter's best market and food street, where you'll also find Place de la Contrescarpe, chosen by Ernest Hemingway for the opening scene in A Moveable Feast. Continue walking, and in another few minutes, you'll be at the Pantheon and Luxembourg Garden.
Pro tip: Request a room overlooking the arena.
Relais Hotel du Vieux Paris ★★★★
9 Rue Git-Le-Coeur, 6th arrondissement
(Although most of the Latin Quarter neighborhood is in the 5th arrondissement, a small section is in the 6th next to the Saint Germain neighborhood.)
Located in a 15th century residence built by a duke, Relais Hotel du Vieux Paris became known as the "Beat Hotel" during the 1950s and '60s when American "Beat Generation" poets and writers such as Allen Ginsburg, Gregory Corso, and Jack Kerouac made it their home in Paris.
Today, the recently renovated 4-star hotel features charming toile fabrics and exposed beam in a nod to earlier centuries, along with high-quality furnishings, comfortable beds, and contemporary conveniences.
Rates for the least-expensive (and quite compact) guestrooms are a real bargain for accommodations in a 4-star hotel in this location, and are also surprisingly affordable for the spacious suites.
Best of all: you'll love the superb Latin Quarter location near the Seine River and the Saint Germain neighborhood, where you'll have easy access to all of Paris's top attractions.
"Pantheon Poolside" Apartment
Need accommodations for up to 10 people? Consider the spacious Pantheon Poolside villa, featuring 5 bedrooms, gracious living spaces, and even its own cinema. Similar to the grand manors you might expect to see dotting the Loire Valley, this 18th century building occupied by a single family (who will be away when you stay there) is a rarity in the heart of Paris, and is perfect for a large family gathering, friends' group, or perhaps even a destination wedding.
The bonus? The beautiful garden with a heated pool, secluded terrace, and the long balcony overlooking the grounds, set up with outdoor sofas where you can enjoy pre-dinner drinks.
Hotel du College de France ★★★
7 Rue Thénard, 5th arrondissement
For a quintessential Parisian experience, book a guestroom with a balcony at the highly-rated 29-room, 3-star Hôtel du College de France, located on a quiet side street close to the Cluny Museum and the Seine River, and sip a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing. The hotel's location in the heart of the Latin quarter gives you an excellent base for exploring all of Paris.
Ceiling fans keep the guestrooms cool during summer months, and you'll love the hotel's affordable rates - a real bargain for this sought-after area in the Left Bank.
Hôtel Parc Saint-Séverin ★★★★
22 Rue de la Parcheminerie, 5th arrondissement
The charming 4-star Hôtel Parc Saint-Séverin overlooks a quiet pedestrian-only street behind Église Saint-Séverin in Paris's Latin Quarter.
The hotel's 27 rooms are decorated in calm neutral shades with pops of jewel-like colors and many luxury touches. The hotel's smaller rooms offer bargain rates for this location, while larger ones with balconies give you wonderful Paris rooftop and skyline views.
Take time to explore the medieval tapestries and Roman baths at Cluny Museum, the English-language bookstore and café at Shakespeare & Company, and if you're here in December, the wonderful Christmas market held each year at Square René Viviani, directly across the Seine from Notre Dame.
Hotel les Dames du Pantheon ★★★★
19 Place du Pantheon, 5th Arrondissement
Located in an 18th century building next to the Pantheon, 4-star Hotel les Dames du Pantheon features decor and fabrics in its 35 guestrooms and suites that reflect the eras and culture of several iconic women. You'll enjoy wonderful close-up views of the Pantheon from the hotel's front-facing rooms.
Whether you choose one of the smaller budget-friendly guest rooms or splurge on a spacious suite, you'll love the friendly staff and the glamorous 1940s vibe of the comfortable seating areas in the lobby. You'll also appreciate being in the heart of the Latin Quarter, the perfect position to explore the Left Bank and the rest of top Paris attractions.
You may also want to consider the hotel's upscale 3-star sibling next door, Hotel Grand Hommes, where the 31 cozy guestrooms' classic decor, comfortable beds, and welcoming staff make it a favorite of budget-savvy travelers.
Hotel Jardin de Cluny ★★★★
9 Rue du Sommerard, 5th arrondissement
Thanks to a transformative top-to-bottom makeover, Hotel Jardin de Cluny is now a gorgeous 4-star oasis with lush floral touches and Art Deco-inspired furnishings. Super-comfortable beds, sleekly modern bathrooms, and excellent lighting add to your comfort.
You'll also love the hotel's superb Latin Quarter location near Cluny Museum and just a short 5-minute walk to the Seine River and Notre Dame Cathedral. Stroll through the nearby Maubert open-air food market, pay your respects to French heroes (including American-born singer Josephine Baker, honored for her work with the French Resistance) at the Pantheon, and of course see the famous "Lady and the Unicorn" tapestries, other medieval treasures, and Roman baths at the recently reopened Musée de Cluny.
Bonus for families: Book the spacious Junior Suite, which sleeps four.
Hotel Marignan ★
13 Rue du Sommerard (near the Pantheon and close to the Seine River)
In a city where 1-star hotels in sought-after neighborhoods have mostly vanished, Hotel Marignan is an insiders' secret among budget-savvy travelers who love its location, low rates, and high-speed fiber optic connections in the heart of Paris's Latin Quarter.
Although the guestrooms tend to be small (which is also true for so many Parisian hotels at every star level), cheerful colors and simple furnishings create a contemporary vibe. Choose accommodations with a shared toilet and/or bathroom, and you'll enjoy rates well under 100€/night.
Single rooms, in particular, are tiny but cheap. Or book a guest room with a private bathroom, private toilet, and perhaps even a balcony, and pay a bit more. No elevator or air conditioning, but fans are available on request. The owner/manager and staff are applauded for being helpful and accommodating. The value is hard to beat.
Le Prince Regent Residence & Spa - Latin Quarter "ApartHotel"
28 Rue Monsieur le Prince, 6th arrondissement

Located less than two blocks from Luxembourg Garden, the hotel puts you in the perfect spot to explore the nearby Cluny Museum, stroll along the Seine River, and savor the neighborhood's many wonderful restaurants.
"La Libellule" Apartment

Located just a 2-minute walk from the Maubert-Mutualité metro station, the 1-bedroom apartment includes a spacious living/dining room, fully equipped kitchen, and luxurious modern bathroom.

Hôtel Le Lapin Blanc ★★★★
41 Boulevard Saint Michel

When you return at the end of the day, relax on the hotel's lovely patio.

1 Rue de la Harpe, 5th arrondissement
Chic modern furnishings and a location just one very short block away from the Seine River make the 3-star Albe Hôtel Saint-Michel a comfortable haven and gateway to the lively Latin Quarter.

Each of the Albe Hotel's 43 guestrooms and suites is decorated with a unique theme, with a Scandinavian vibe in the clean design and splashes of color against monochromes. Plenty of triples make this hotel a great option for small families or friend groups.
You'll have easy access to Notre Dame, Sainte-Chapelle, and other Île de la Cité attractions, as well as to all the wonderful Latin Quarter bistros, galleries, and boutiques.
More Places to Stay in Paris's Latin Quarter
Last but certainly not least, here are three more very special places to stay in the Latin Quarter (by coincidence, they are all also very close to the Saint-Germain neighborhood). But, they are are also highly popular and therefore not easy to reserve. Needless to say, you'll need to book far in advance, especially if you want to get one of the larger suites or apartments for more than a night or two.
- Hotel Saint-Andre des Arts (66 Rue Saint-André des Arts, 6th arr) - Cool 4-star hotel with an Art Deco/Pop Art vibe on a lively street in the Odeon area; very, very popular. Sister hotel to 3 other highly-rated Latin Quarter Hotels: Hotel Les Dames du Pantheon, Hotel des Grands Hommes, and Hotel Baume.
- Hotel Villa d'Estrées (17 Rue Gît-le-Cœur, 6th arr) - Gorgeous 4-star boutique hotel with just 10 spacious guestrooms and suites (including family suites for up to 5 guests), and elegant, charming decor located very close to the Seine River on a quiet side street where one of King Henri IV's favorite mistresses lived in the 1590s. If you've drooled over showrooms featuring antique objects, beautiful tiles, and Pierre Frey, Farrow & Ball, Brunschwig & Son, Osborne Little, and Lelievre fabrics, wallpapers, and paints during your strolls around Paris, you can experience them first hand in this exquisitely decorated hotel.
- Hotel Residence des Arts (14 Rue Gît-le-Cœur, 6th arr) - Beautiful 3-star hotel with 11 guestrooms on 6 floors in a 17th century building; sister hotel to Hotel Villa d'Estrées across the street, so you'll find similarly elegant decor, high quality materials, and attention to details.
