This is a lovely 50 room hotel in the 5th arrondissement in Paris and I would highly recommend it for a visit to Paris. The service here is _fantastic_. The hotel is family run and every single person I interacted with was wonderful. On top of that the breakfast is very, very good value, copious and high quality. And the... More

loved my stay at this hotel! the room is cozy and comfortable (i had a courtyard-facing room). i would skip breakfast--you are steps away from rue mouffetard and bakeries, creperies where you can get a quick inexpensive breakfast. wi-fi works well. 2 blocks from cardinal lemoine metro stop. the neighborhood is charming. i would definitely stay here again!

This is the place to stay if you want a quiet and comfortable non commercial haven for a short stay in Paris. It has no restaurant, other than a breakfast room, but the choice is yours. There are a myriad of nearby bars, restaurants to choose from. Rooms are medium sized with clean adjoining bathrooms, well heated and overlook a... More

We stayed at Hotel des Grandes Ecoles Christmas 2009, and again New Years 2014/2015. We loved both stays. The property has a great looking garden area which of course we didn't use in winter. The rooms are really attractive, not real large, but very comfortable. The staff is very nice and accommodating. The big selling point here is the neighborhood.... More

This was our second time staying in this hidden gem. It has a pretty expansive garden area, paved with cobblestones. If you want to be very nice to those staying on the ground floor, I would suggest carrying your bag, rather than wheeling it if coming/going in the early morning or late night. The rooms are clean, and without TVs... More

If you are looking for a less commercial hotel in the left bank area of Paris, Hotel des Grande Ecoles is for you. Up the hill from Cardinal Lemoine Metro stop, through the garden (used for dining in good weather) and into a group of buildings from 30's or earlier Paris. Clean, quiet, well managed. and a super friendly staff... More

Stayed in Hotel des Grandes Ecoles for three nights in October. The courtyard was lovely and all in all the hotel area was very quaint. I had made a booking several months beforehand and asked for a room in the courtyard, however, we were given a room on the second floor. The room was quite cute, very small and the... More

This hotel is in a great location with easy access to the underground. Also nearby are numerous restaurants, cafes, bakeries and a laundromat. All of this is particularly useful given the Hotel's rules - no washing or drying laundry, no kettle and no food to be consumed in the room. The other potential drawbacks include no or fridge (not surprising... More

We booked this hotel on the strength of the favourable reviews on 'trip advisor' and we were not disappointed. We booked a room overlooking the garden as advised and that was a good move. The room was decorated and furnished in the French style - there was no TV but there was wifi. The hotel felt secure and it was... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
