    Historical Traveler Reviews Minerve Hotel Paris

    Ew. The staff ruined it for me.


    I stayed there and found the hotel itself to be quite modern. However, the arrogant fat bald man at the front desk was totally unwilling to be helpful and seemed to take pleasure in leaving us stranded. I would have thought it was only us, but there were other guests complaining as well. When I went next door to the Familia to complain--since they have the same owner--they were very quick to distance themselves from the Minerve and made it clear they had different management.

    Great value, location, staff


    I have stayed at the Minerve on several occasions, including once with my graduate class of 20 students for 2 weeks, and found it peaceful, well located and friendly. While some rooms are small, even they have a certain charm. Wish they would give more variety for breakfast.

    Superb value


    This is a wonderful, family-run property. Very gracious to US tourists.

    We stay here each time we are in Paris.

    Terrific location


    Very pleased with this hotel. You can walk to many attractions on both banks and Metro and bus access is first rate. Rooms are small and more expensive rooms on the street side (with balconies) are much nicer (and more costly) than those opening onto air shafts in back. Midlle rooms on the fifth floor in front had tiny showers only while corner rooms had a bath at the same price. I certainly would go back.



    We loved this hotel. We travelled with our three year old son. They were very accomadating and kind. They even let us keep some outlet adapters for the rest of our trip. The rooms were small but clean and cute, and the tiny balconies were nice, and with a nice view. We enjoy the noises of the city and often kept our balcony doors open. Across the street is a cute patisserie with the sweetest lady and tiny dog that work there. Also the pastries at breakfast were delicious be forewarned though... you don't have to pay for or eat breakfast so make sure you don't if you don't want it.

    Good value


    Overall, we had a good experience. The rooms were very small (by American standards), but were generally clean. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful when asked for restaurant and site seeing recommendations. A metro stop was about 2 blocks away. We never ate at the hotel, as there were small pastry and sandwich shops right across the street. Latin Quarter location is always great.

    Don't Stay


    Even with e-mail confirmation in hand, hotel botched reservation. The most unhelpful and rudest hotel staff I've ever encountered. Customer service is a unheard of term here. Did nothing to accomadate us. Many better hotels to stay at in the Latin Quarter than this palce

    Don't stay here!


    Be warned- I had 80 Euro stolen from my (miniscule) hotel room here. I had put it aside so that I would be able to pay my hotel bill, and when I went to pay at the reception it was gone. The receptionist was very unsympathetic, and I could understand it might have looked like a scam, but it was a horrible way to end what had been a fantastic stay in Paris.

    Beware of Hotel Minerve!


    We stayed at Hotel Minerve for 5 nights and found the hotel to be quite clean, safe and cozy. The only problem however, was the fact that we had clothing stolen from our room! Someone in Paris is walking around in my favourite blue top...which makes you wonder about the quality of the staff working at this otherwise recommendable establishment.



    I highly recommend this charming hotel. Minerve Hotel is beautiful. It is located about four blocks from the Notre Dame in the Latin Quarter. The medium sized rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean. It was recently refurbished and so everything is new, even the bathrooms! Service was very friendly and extremely accomodating. They are very helpful in giving advice on how to see Paris with limited time. Some rooms have balconies (with a view of the Notre Dame) and some have small private court yards. If you want a room with a balcony ask for one on the 5th floor, they're larger and have tables on them. Price is comparable to other hotels in the area. Metro is nearby.

    ... The visit to the park itself was still worth it as there's plenty to see and the walking around was good for us overstuffed tourists. Then we walked to the metro to Pont Neuf to get to the cruise. Picked up crepes from a nearby cafe. Quite good, can't remember the name of the place. The cruise was fine, got a good overview of all the major landmarks dotting the city's skyline. It as about an hour long, and it ...

    ... Nation AND Dirty on the wall of a room and then doesn't have either of those albums as part of the optional soundtrack? Weirdos, that's who. Nonetheless, there were many interesting pieces of art and a great section on photography. Meanwhile, Ben played ping pong with himself and now I want him to teach me hand-eye co-ordination.

    We then walked to Notre Dame and arrived during mass. It was a rather interesting experience and I will not ...

    Layover at Charles de Gaulle

    A travel blog entry by drdave810 on Mar 06, 2015


    We had an easy flight from O'Hare to Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris. The flight on Delta went almost surprisingly well. Lots of legroom in upgraded seats that also happened to be in an exit row. Even nicer was that the flight was an hour shorter due to a very favorable jet stream, with the 767 flying most of the way at a cruising speed of over 630 ...

    ... other Airbnb hosts had left for us!! Woo hoo!

    Staying on the houseboat was such a one off experience. It had everything a normal apartment or hotel room would have, including a full kitchen and a small part of the deck we could use to enjoy our breakfast or an aperitif. On deck level in the kitchen/dining area, the roof was a little low, and we both had to duck our heads in order to stand (poor Mikey whacked his head a few times during our stay!), but we didn’t ...

    ... different to the churches of England, this church was extremely catholic and gorgeous. Created over several important eras in France (Initially a king commissioned it, then it was abandoned during the French Revolution, planned to become a war commemoration sight under napoleon and then changed back to a church after the Russian war and later finished off by a different king) this building looked so fantastic. Inside were several ...
