Our first view of Hotel de Grandes Ecoles was a large, imposing door. Open the door and you are entering a beautiful sanctuary with lush greenery, a cobblestone walkway, and a charming manor. Enjoy quaint rooms, a relaxing breakfast, cool air, and wonderful hospitality. Evenings you can relax at nearby Place de la Contrescarpe - pick a café and enjoy... More

We loved this hotel for it's ambience. Open the gate of this hotel and you are instantly enveloped in a small garden courtyard that shuts out the hustle and bustle of Paris. Every morning you can get coffee and croissants in the small dining room or eat them at tables outside. You also have the option of getting a pastry... More

The location and setting of this courtyard hotel, tucked away off the magical Place de la Contrescarpe, couldn’t be better. What other mid-priced Parisian hotel can boast a 19th-century manoir with private garden and cobbled driveway, bang in the city’s most beguiling neighbourhood? Even the tired, flowery décor, wobbly furniture and old-fashioned bathrooms serve only to enhance the impression of... More

The garden outside is just perfect. Almost every night we bought a bottle of wine, asked the staff to open it, borrowed two glasses and enjoyed ourselves. Often times we had conversations with other travelers. Location is amazing, hear of the Latin quarter. It's a 2 minute walk to a big squiare with a bunch of cafes that everyone drinks... More

This is a great hotel located in the latin quarter some 100m from a metro. We walked to most tourist attractions from here. Rooms are good with excellent service. The highlight is the tranquil beautiful private courtyard where you can enjoy your own drinks and food if required. Only 1 minute away a square and surrounding streets host some +... More

We booked this hotel for our visit to Paris based on a suggestion from a friend and the reviews on here. We were a little disappointed as it was not quite up to our usual standards. The hotel is basically a nice motel with a pretty garden. The rooms are very small (I've been to Paris many times - this... More

Yes, the courtyard is beautiful. The staff are nice and helpful, the breakfast is not bad value and good if you want to load up on bread and viennoiserie. It's nice that they will lend you glasses to have an evening drink in the courtyard if you buy your own but it would be good if they had a bar.... More

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
