Best Hotels in the Latin Quarter of Paris

Paris' Latin Quarter, known to Parisians as Le quartier Latin, is one Paris' oldest neighborhoods. Dating back to medieval times, this area gets its name from the language solely spoken between students and professor before the French Revolution. With its narrow and winding pathways, it’s no wonder that the Latin Quarter remains one of Paris' top tourist attractions. Today, it is a lively and young area due to its proximity to La Sorbonne: the historic French university attended by the likes of famous French author and poet Victor Hugo and Pope Benedict XVI.
