Stayed one week at this lovely hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. The garden is very peaceful a great place to relax with a coffee or wine. It felt like home after a busy day in Paris. We would definitely return.

I love this hotel and cannot praise it enough. Many people feel as I do and hesitate, as I have, to say anything at all. We would like to keep this beautiful gem for ourselves. The rooms are comfortable and quiet and the staff members are charming and delightful (and helpful). I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.

This is a very quaint and lovely secluded gem. This is my favorite neighborhood in Paris. It has a lovely garden up front to plan your daily activities or have a glass of wine at the end of the day. The rooms are small as are the bathrooms but I think it is part of the charm. The staff is... More

Very nice hotel well located in the Latin Quarter. This was a perfect base for our fist time in Paris. The rooms are lovely and the location is perfect. It is also a quiet refuge at the end of long days of exploring. Simple breakfast served in lounge and many restaurant options close by.

We love this hotel. It is set back off the street and has a delightful garden for enjoying your coffee in the morning or wine at cocktail hour. The staff is more than helpful. The location is great and the price is right. We would definitely return.

I recently completed my 7th stay at Hotel des Grandes Ecoles, a charming family-run hotel with a beautiful courtyard and comfortable rooms conveniently located in the Latin Quarter. On this trip, I stayed with my extended family and we took four rooms, each comfortable in its own way. Just two blocks from the Cardinal Lemoine metro stop, you couldn't ask... More

This was a return trip to this hotel. We were traveling with three other couples and the hotel accommodated all our needs. This is a great boutique hotel with a quiet location while being surrounded with great shopping, a great selection of restaurants and cafes, and numerous sites to walk too and great access the Paris in general.

Very nice establishment while visiting Paris. Quite, secluded, comfortable and well located. I enjoyed my stay as a solo traveler and recommend the Hotel des Grandes Ecoles to fellow travelers. I found the location most favorable and the staff very helpful, especially for an American with a very limited French vocabulary. Well worth the look to see if Hotel des... More

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

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.
