The Latin Quarter

This is the birthplace of Paris: the area between the Ile de la Cité and the Left Bank was called the Latin Quarter in Middle Ages as this was where all the Latin - the language of knowledge - was spoken and where schools were located. The Sorbonne University next to the Hotel and the University of Bologna are the oldest universities in the Western world.

Our hotel is located in this extraordinary melting pot where the most ancient vestiges of Paris, its brightest intellectual centres, and its youth come together. 

Bâtiments de France and Haussmann

The Hôtel Royal Saint-Michel is located in a typical building designed by Baron Haussmann in his attempts to modernise and sanitise Paris in 19th century. It has typical Haussmann features: The six-floor, dressed-stone façade features magnificent balconies and cornices as well as one of Paris’ iconic zinc roofs. 

Our building is listed "Bâtiments de France" owing to its historic and architectural importance and is part of Paris’ protected heritage.

The hotel

After exploring the myriad things to do in the neighbourhood, return to the hotel and relax in total comfort. While the days seem to pass all too quickly, your hotel is the perfect place to discuss your new discoveries, share emotions, write a postcard or enjoy a concert at one of the city’s famous jazz cellars where France discovered Miles David, Sidney Bechet, Duke Ellington and Charlie Parker after the war. The Caveau de la Huchette, the Petit Journal and the Club Saint Germain (where Django Reinhart would park his caravan before performing) ...

Walking itineraries from the hotel

You are in the very heart of Paris. With so many things to discover! We recommend these two walks.
End up at the Eiffel Tower after a 45-minute walk along the banks of the Seine. Discover the Pont des Arts, the Louvre, the magnificent Musée d’Orsay, the Place de la Concorde with its obelisk, the Grand and Petit Palais by the Pont Alexandre III before arriving at the Dame de Fer. Don’t forget to visit the Jardins du Trocadéro - the views are simply breathtaking. After your stroll, why not have a coffee at Place du Trocadéro or try a delicious cake from Carette.

The following day, cross the Seine to visit the Ile de la Cité where Paris’ daily flower market is held. Don’t miss the wonderful Sainte Chapelle whose spire can be seen above the roofs of the Palais de Justice. Then visit the Ile Saint Louis by crossing the Pont Saint Louis where you’ll see musicians of all kinds playing behind Notre Dame, and don’t forget to take time to enjoy a sorbet (chocolate!) at Berthillon. On the way back to the Hotel, stroll along the banks of the Seine and browse for books and prints among the timeless booksellers’ stalls.

Best Choice near Notre-Dame

We spent 3 nights in early October. Location was our primary criteria. Just perfect: One block from 2 RER and major local subway line. We enjoyed the room and breakfast (included). The staff is very helpful. Lot of restaurants and bistro around. Closed to Notre-Dame and Le Louvre (by foot). This is the place to stay if you like original hotel (Small elevator, high ceiling). Room and bathroom were cleaned.

We will be repeat customers

Perfect location. Although in a busy area, the rooms were sound proof and very quiet. Breakfast was delicious, and a good value. Easily accessible from the airport on the RER train.
