Why you should choose the Latin Quarter for Budget Hotels in Paris

Budget Hotels in Paris can be hard to find, especially for a large group, but it’s much easier for you if you know where to look.  We think the Latin Quarter is a great option for your stay and here’s just a few reasons why.

The Latin Quarter is one of Paris’s most central and vibrant neighborhoods.  It’s a great place for you to find Budget Hotels in Paris to stay with your student group. You can experience Paris from a spot where many tourists may not think about staying.  The area is also relatively inexpensive given its central location and constant buzz of activity.

It’s Walking Distance from So Much

If you’ve never been, you may not have heard of the Latin Quarter of Paris before, but that doesn’t mean you it’s not an excellent place to stay – especially with a group of students.  This area can be a great way to stay central while also sticking to budget.  It’s located just a stone’s throw away from the river Seine extremely close to the famous Notre Dame Cathedral on the Isle de la Cité.

If that’s not enough, depending on where within the area you are, it is also a short walk from various other attractions, including the Luxembourg Gardens – a beautiful building and landscape you’ll definitely want to see during your trip.

On top of that, its proximity to the Seine means it’s also not a far walk to the infamous Louvre Museum – another must see.  This walk is approximately 15 minutes, and would also take you directly along the Seine where you should have the chance to see the famous booksellers for some souvenirs.

You’re Close to the Metro

Maybe the best part of the Latin Quarter is that it’s full of great places to eat and hang out.  You won’t have a hard time at all finding a place to eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner near here.  Also, you can find restaurants with food of basically any variety, from Indian food, to American style food, to traditional French food, and so much more, it really is a great restaurant area.

Not only is it great for restaurants, but it also has a so many bars, some of which have consistent live music.  In the summer and warmer months especially, this is a great addition to the area because wherever you walk in the evening, you hear these performers.

The liveliness of the neighborhood makes it great for students, adults, families and the elderly – it is so versatile that all ages can enjoy some, if not all aspects of it.
