a family run hotel that most discerning seasoned travelers to PARIS clamor for . you can walk almost everywhere from the hotel except maybe MONTMARTRE, which is the only time I took the metro. it`s a short walk to the SEINE and NOTRE DAME . LATIN QUARTER is undeniably one of the best "HOODS " of PARIS . tons of... More

We visited Paris with our two children for three days. The hotel is located in one of the most typical quartiers of Paris (quartier Latin). It is charming, not the newest furniture but clean and the staff is friendly. For the price of the hotel, everything was perfect.

We have stayed at the Hotel des Grandes Ecoles in past years, and returned for another stay in March. We love where it is situated, quite convenient to the Metro and just below the Contrescarpe where there are many restaurants and cafes. The Hotel is situated behind a walled entrance with a small door, which opens onto a lovely courtyard... More

I travelled to Paris with my husband in November 2013. This is our first time to Paris. With fairly limited budget and because of Paris' security condition, we finally found this hotel with most descent and good location. It's only like 5 mins away from the subway, and the way to subway is safe and clean. There are lots of... More

We've now stayed here four times and after all these years it's the only hotel in Paris that I want to come back to. Enter the quiet courtyard, and you have a welcome respite from the noise and bustle of the city. The rooms are tasteful (period decor), the beds comfortable and the bathrooms large. It's not fancy (no TV... More

Our second stay at this hotel, and certainly not our last. Lovely well appointed rooms. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable staff. Very good traditional continental breakfast which can be eaten in the dining area our in our room. Secluded quiet courtyard overlooked by rooms, making for a quiet respite from an active vibrant restaurant/shop and plaza environment just steps outside the controlled... More

Book this hotel if you can. So many positives: 1. Amazing French interiors; 2. Good WIFI; 3. Comfortable beds and large bathroom; 4. Very close to amazing restaurants that have good value set meals. The downside is you have to walk uphill from the metro to get to the hotel.

I had passed Hotel des Grand Ecoles on an earlier trip to Paris, and couldn’t help but look in. Behind the unassuming (even shabby), little sign, the cobbled path that led to the courtyard looked so inviting. I declared that I would come back and stay there. I did, and it was delightful. First, unlike the majority of hotels in... More

My wife and I stayed here because some friends were doing so as well and we all love the place. The breakfast if very adequate and Marie, who works during the day at the desk is charming. She forced us to practice our French and they were very helpful ordering the shuttle to the airports.The location couldn't be better and... More

My family and I (8 of us in all) stayed at the Hotel des Grandes Ecoles for five nights and loved the charm and quaintness of the place. It is on a quiet street in the Latin Quarter. The rooms are covered in wallpaper that sets a decidedly feminine tone. The beds were comfy, the bathrooms were clean and the... More
