This little hotel tucked away in the Latin quarter is just darling, a little jewel box hidden behind a green gate. Once past the gates you are treated to a large courtyard with beautiful gardens and a puncture perfect three story residence with compact rooms, period wallpapers, cobblestone walkways, and charming hospitality. Just delightful.

I was somewhat skeptical that such a modestly priced hotel could be such a delight, especially in pricey, pricey Paris. This little gem hits all the marks--darling tiny rooms, excellent location, beautiful courtyard gardens, and a warm staff. Would return in a heartbeat to this beautiful little charmer.

Excellent hideaway in the middle of Paris. Nice, clean rooms with atmosphere. Small in size but big on charm! The courtyard is beautiful and the Mouffetard street offers all you need...Small bars, cafées, restaurants, bakery, butcher, Sunday market etc etc...Really nice part of Paris, close to metro station and walking distance from Notre Dame. We loved it! The only negative... More

This place is almost too good to believe. Set in its own little garden in the centre of the Latin Quarter, it is close to both ancient history and the most modern of pub scenes. The neighbourhood is full of both cultural landmarks -- Descartes lived just around the corner -- and modern sites like the film locations for Woody... More

Me and my family spent a few days in this hotel and all I can do is to thank its hosts for running such a wonderful place. Quiet, respectful, clean and full of glamour, this hotel is a great place to relax. Close to downtown Paris it transports you to a time when life was measure in conversations and not... More

This hotel is a beautiful jewel in the heart of the Latin quarter. We enjoyed a romantic weekend in this beautifully renovated school. The staff was friendly; the room was cosy and quiet overlooking a leafy courtyard. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Paris!

This hotel was booked after reading many TA reviews...so we knew what to expect and you can only hope it lives up to what you have read, knowing that we all have different expectations. It did, with a few exceptions. Paris was hot, humid and one thing you do need at the end of a big day walking around is... More

There is definitely charm here. Great courtyard and you can bring your own food and you will be supplied place settings. Neighborhood is also amazing! Beds are hard as a rock and pillows are not great either. The breakfast is a bread orgy! This place is simple and very Parisian, but if you are looking for any type of comfort... More

Cute boutique hotel in the centre of the Latin Quarter. This is the Paris I love so much as the minute you walk out the front gate there are so many cafés, bars and restaurants to choose from. The hotel itself is picture perfect with blooming flowers surrounding a cobblestone courtyard with tables and chairs to enjoy a glass of... More
