Our hotel is your perfect holiday destination in Paris. Ideally located in the heart of the Latin Quarter in the 5th arrondissement, Hôtel du Levant is in Saint-Michel where the universities and most prestigious graduate schools in Paris, including the Sorbonne, can be found.It is just steps from Notre-Dame de Paris, the Seine and Ile de la Cité.
Nearby, Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the meeting place for artists and writers of the Left Bank, Café de Flore and Les Deux Magots are still the undisputed stars of Parisian life.
Facing the Seine, Saint-Michel Square, where the metro station of the same name is located, serves as the cradle of a fountain surmounted by a statue of the archangel, and known by tourists from all over the world as one of the most common meeting points of capital! Saint-Michel Square also attracts many street artists, who give various shows at any time of the day.
Along Saint-Michel Boulevard
Frequented by students since the university’s beginnings in the Middle Ages, Boulevard Saint Michel, one of the oldest arteries in Paris, is now populated by cafés, bookstores and booksellers. We walk there as much for its young and trendy atmosphere as to stroll among the displays of books punctuated, here and there, by clothing shops. One does not forget the detour to Notre-Dame cathedral, a few steps from the RER station Saint-Michel/Notre-Dame, and one climbs in the tower of the Cathedral, located on the Ile de la Cité, to admire a magnificent panorama of the city!
Saint Germain des Prés
Perpendicular to Saint Michel Boulevard, Saint Germain des Prés Boulevard has always been the meeting place for artists and writers from all walks of life. It is in one of its famous cafes, the Deux-Magots or the Flore, once frequented by Sartre and Beauvoir, that you have the most chance to meet the gratin of the Parisian intellectual elite, while enjoying a steak tartare or a Caesar salad!
