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

If you are looking for that 5 hotel star experience, go elsewhere. You are at the wrong place. If you are looking for a classic French experience in a great location with classic french staff...stay here. We LOVED it. We had probably the cheapest room in the place so were in the old building and yes the wallpaper is old... More

Tucked away in a side street in the Latin Quarter, there is little to suggest that this hotel is anything special - until you step into the courtyard that houses the two buildings which make up the accommodation. Cobbled and dotted with shrubs and flowers, it offers a haven from the hustle and bustle of Paris and makes for a... More

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
