ruemouffetardAlthough the student-centric Latin Quarter in Paris may not be as full of bargain basement lodging deals as it used to be, it’s still an excellent place to base yourself for a Paris vacation. And you can find budget hotels in the Latin Quarter, too – as long as your idea of “budget” includes hotels that charge between €100-130 a night, depending on the season.

I’ve hunted down some hotels in the Latin Quarter for this post – you’ll find a map of the Latin Quarter below with the Pantheon and Sorbonne marked, as well as the local hotels. You can click on each hotel icon to get more information about the hotel, or scroll down further to find a brief write-up about the hotel along with a photo.

Most of the hotels I’ve listed here are what I’d call “budget hotels” (typically under €130 per night, depending on the season), but there are a couple options below which are either super cheap or a little bit of a splurge. There’s one hostel in the Latin Quarter that’s on this list, and there are a few hotels on the higher end of the range as well, in case you’re looking for something a little bit beyond the usual budget hotel.

Budget Hotels in the Latin Quarter

Budget Hotels in the Latin Quarter

Exclusive Hotel Dacia Luxembourg
41 boulevard Saint Michel – 75005 Paris
The Exclusive Hotel Dacia Luxembourg is in the center of the Latin Quarter, a short walk from many of the biggest attractions in Paris and very close to the St. Germain des Pres area of the city as well.

There are 38 rooms in the hotel, each individually decorated and with a private bathroom. The rooms are air conditioned and have satellite TV and WiFi access, and there’s also internet access available in the lobby. Breakfast is included with the room.

Hotel Europe Saint Severin
38-40 rue St. Severin – 75005 Paris
Conveniently located at the edge of the Latin Quarter and a short 100 meters from the banks of the Seine River, Hotel Europe Saint Severin is ideally situated for just about any Paris vacation – and it won’t break the bank, either.

There are 59 rooms in the Hotel Europe Saint Severin, all of which feature private bathrooms, satellite TV, air conditioning, and WiFi access. There’s a restaurant at the hotel, and some of the rooms overlook a private interior garden.

Hotel du Pantheon
19 place du Pantheon – 75005 Paris
The Hotel du Pantheon is aptly named, as it faces the famous Latin Quarter landmark. The 18th century building housing the hotel was totally renovated in 2001, and the hotel is decorated in a light and cozy French country fashion.

The entire hotel offers free WiFi and is entirely non-smoking. Room prices can definitely skyrocket in the high season, but this is a bit of affordable luxury if you time it right. Breakfast is available in the hotel for an additional fee.

Hotel Maxim Quartier Latin
28 rue Censier – 75005 Paris
The Hotel Maxim Quartier Latin may be a bit further of a walk from the center of the Latin Quarter, but it’s definitely walking distance from the Latin Quarter sights – and many others besides – and it’s an incredibly charming hotel at a budget price.

There are 36 rooms in the 2-star hotel, all of which have private bathrooms, cable TV, and WiFi access. The hotel has a lovely modern lounge bar, and a bright and modern breakfast room. There is an additional fee for breakfast, which you can also take back to your room.

Hotel Des Trois Colleges
16 rue Cujas – 75005 Paris
The Des Trois Colleges hotel is roughly between the Pantheon and the Jardin du Luxembourg, making it a great location from which to explore Paris. The 2-star hotel occupies an 18th-century building which has been nicely renovated.

There are 44 rooms in the hotel, all of which have private bathrooms, air conditioning, flat screen satellite TVs, WiFi & internet access, and soundproofed windows. The rooms on the upper floors overlook the Sorbonne’s chapel and the Pantheon.

Hostel in the Latin Quarter

Young & Happy Hostel
80 rue Mouffetard – 75005 Paris
The Young & Happy Hostel is located right in the midst of the Latin Quarter on the famous Rue Mouffetard. Many of the city’s main sights are within relatively easy walking distance from the hostel, but there’s also a Metro stop 5 minutes from the front door.

This hostel is open 24 hours a day, so you don’t have to worry about a curfew, but there is a midday lockout period for cleaning. Breakfast is included with the price of the bed. Bed linens and towels are not included, however, so you’ll need to either bring your own or rent them at the hostel. There is internet access available for a fee.

Reasonable Splurge Hotels in the Latin Quarter

The Five Hotel
3 rue Flatters – 75005 Paris
As you might expect from a Parisian hotel with a name like “The Five Hotel,” this is no old-world establishment. It’s a boutique Latin Quarter hotel that’s been renovated with completely modern decor dominated by red, black, and white – and some of the rooms are designated by their bright color themes.

The hotel has an elevator, and the entire building is covered by WiFi access. There are only 24 guestrooms, and the staff is particularly attentive. The rooms feature free WiFi, air conditioning, and satellite TVs. Breakfast is available for an additional fee.

Hotel Central Saint Germain
3 rue Champollion – 75005 Paris
The Hotel Central Saint Germain is located just off the Boulevard Saint Michel in the Latin Quarter, very close to the Sorbonne and Pantheon, and just a short walk from the Cluny-La Sorbonne Metro stop.

There are 35 rooms in the hotel, all of which have private bathrooms, air conditioning, TVs with international channels, and WiFi access (for a fee). There is an elevator in the hotel, and a breakfast buffet is available every morning for an additional fee.

Hotel California Saint Germain
32 rue des Ecoles – 75005 Paris
The Hotel California Saint Germain is located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, a short walk from the Seine River, the Pantheon, and the Luxembourg Garden.

There are 44 rooms in the Hotel California Saint Germain, including 5 singles, and all rooms have private bathrooms, air conditioning, and cable TV and are individually decorated. Breakfast is available for an additional fee, and you can wind down at the end of the day with a drink in the hotel bar.

There are more pictures of the Five Hotel at Five Hotel but it may not be my favorite. The service is excellent, the rooms totaly unique and the area of town is quiet at night which is good because I sleep lightly. However, the rooms are a tad small. No smaller than other hotels (other than perhaps chain hotels), but small. The bathroom sinks are small too, so wash-up before you’re dressed in the morning! Overall the Five is a excellent for the price. But if you can afford more than another hotel might be better.
Just my take.
Thanks.
