The ancient district of the Latin Quarter is a cultural and historic hub of Paris. Our delightful Latin Quarter hotel stands proudly amidst a cornucopia of landmarks, churches, museums and galleries, all of which add to the allure and mystique of this most romantic of cities. The world’s most renowned Gothic cathedral, the 12th century Notre Dame, rises imposingly from its island in the Seine, a symphony in stone with graceful flying buttresses and leering gargoyles. The classical architecture of The Pantheon, last resting place of many legends of French arts and sciences, makes the heart soar with its grandeur. The 16th century former royal residence called the Louvre is one of the world’s great museums, containing some 380,000 artefacts including the Mona Lisa. The Cluny Museum, with its carefully preserved Roman baths; the stunning collection of French art and artefacts to be found in the Orsay Museum; the lush loveliness of the Paris Botanical Gardens; all these and more can be found in our part of Paris alone.
Known as a centre of intellectual and artistic life since the students of the Sorbonne spoke Latin, thus giving rise to its name, the Latin Quarter is a spellbinding area of streets which simply beg to be explored. The neighbourhood around the boulevards Saint Michel and Saint Germain are rich with famous cafes, restaurants and second hand bookshops and around every corner there is a fresh surprise. At the Hotel California Saint-Germain you will be at the epicentre of this vibrant district which pulses with life and yet is imbued with the essence of the past.
Although we are conveniently located for accessing many of our city’s places of interest, there is a full range of public transport facilities to be found in the vicinity of the Hotel California Saint-Germain.
