As you approach the hotel through a charming courtyard, your expectations elevate, and the charming receptionist re-in forces this. BUT when you get to your room, albeit charmingly decorated you will be very disappointed. Our room was tiny, and so was the bathroom with shower only. There was no TV or hospitality tray. But it was clean, though not serviced... More

My husband and I stayed here for just 3 nights for a quick trip to Paris. I had read about this hotel for years and finally got to stay. It did not disappoint. Lovely sweet room decorated in traditional toile pattern with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Our room on the 3rd floor overlooked the courtyard below and we... More

This hotel is very quaint. It is arranged around a beautiful courtyard off a busy street near good bars and restaurants in the 5th. The rooms are decent size for France. The beds were comfortable and the staff very helpful. they arranged dinner reservations and taxi's for me very efficiently. I would recommend getting a room away from the street... More

We had a lovely, large room, very French feel. Friends stayed 3 in a room above us, and this worked better than usual as there was a curtain dividing the lounge and bed areas. Lovely garden. Perfect area close to the metro and many restaurants and other amenities in the neighbourhood. Not cheap, but I don't think you can get... More

We stayed here five years ago and my wife wouldn't hear of staying anywhere else. No argument from me as it is a quaint hotel, in a great position and close to all we wanted to see. Marie accommodated our request to be in or near our old room and we again got a room with wallpaper over all the... More

With a myriad of choices and locations, it was difficult to decide on a place to stay for 6 nights in Paris as we consumed as many sights as possible. We decided on the Ecole because it 1) had good reviews and 2) was in a good location for exploring the left bank. It was just two blocks from a... More

This hotel is about a 15 min walk from Notre Dame, and just a short walk to the nearest metro station. There are lots of boulangeries, patisseries, and cafés/pubs nearby, as well as the delightful Mouffetard market. The Pantheon and Jardin des Plantes are also within easy walking distance. The service at this hotel is exceptional. I hope to stay... More

This was our third stay in this lovely hotel: a quiet, green retreat in enchanting, but clamorous, Paris. The rooms are pretty, with wallpaper and drapes in those lovely, monochromatic historic/pictorial patterns; and the daily housekeeping is meticulous. The courtyard is wonderful, full of birdsong, cool, peaceful. Guests are made to feel welcome to use it all day and into... More

We stayed here for 4 nights on our annual trip to Paris and what a wonderful surprise we had on first arriving at the hotel. Behind the large gates awaits a little bit of countryside where peace and quiet is a blessing after a busy and frenetic day in the city. Our room was on the top floor and overlooked... More

We had wanted to stay here again for years but found it hard to get in...they book up fast. The setting is nice with a nice courtyard with garden where weather permitting you can eat petit dejeuner or picnic. That said, we arrived during rain and by the time we made it to the door over the cobbled walkway we... More
