Embracing the Latin Quarter’s Medieval collegiate history, the Hôtel des 3 Collèges provides comfortable three-star accommodations for visiting professors (and those who want to sleep near them).
Pros: Great location near the Sorbonne. Comfortable and quiet inside. Renovated rooms.
Cons: Rooms décor a bit of a snooze. Can be expensive.
Location is a key draw at the 3 Collèges: The hotel is located just one block south of the Place de la Sorbonne on the tiny rue Cujas. Comfy rooms look out across the street to the Sorbonne buildings, and bookstores, cafés and assorted thinkers are all around.
The hotel renovated all of their rooms in 2013 and the result is pretty, if not exciting, as all are outfitted with cream walls, framed prints and dark orange throw pillows. Standard modular beds and desks are functional.
All room are non-smoking and equipped with a flat-screen TV, telephone and air conditioning, and free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel. The hotel provides a few rooms way up on the sixth floor that sleep three guests or function as more spacious (and expensive) doubles.
Bathrooms have also been renovated and boast nice new tiling, showers, rather fancy toiletries and a hair dryer.
Downstairs, the hotel is professional, quiet and studious, with a large reception area and reading lounge that looks out to the street. We’ve found the receptionists quite friendly.
The hotel has an elevator. Breakfast is available for €5 (small) or €9 (large).
About that name
The hotel name "Hôtel des 3 Collèges" refers to the three 13th-century colleges that were once situated on the rue Cujas: the Sorbonne (founded in 1254), the Collège de Cluny (1261) and the Collège des Chôlets (1292).
