Lovely little no nonsense Hotel, very Parisian Hotel in the Latin Quartier. Rooms are clean, simple. No TV or kettle, which didn’t really matter to us. Staff was very friendly. We didn’t have breakfast as there are so many places just minutes from the hotel, so can’t rate it. Loved the area and have re-booked already!

Very nice stay. Rooms are clean and quaint. A very Parisienne feel.. We stayed in a room that overlooked the garden. Very nice! Key fob required to enter, felt very safe. Breakfast was very filling with croissant, yogurt, bread, cheese and egg. Close to the metro.

The Hôtel des Grandes-Ecoles is one of those older traditional French hotels with a closed court and garden - you would hardly know from the street that there's a hotel behind the closed gate on the Rue du Cardinal Lemoine. We had a pleasant room on the 3rd floor of the main building, and it was big by traditional French standards, though small by American standards. A very quiet and calm ambiance. Breakfast was larger than I expected - croissant, bread, eggs, juice, jam, cheese, coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. We stayed here because an old friend first recommended it to me 40 years ago, but I had my own habits. This year, however, my "usual" hotel was closed due to Covid, so I found the old recommendation list and chose this hotel. The managers of the hotel were polite, friendly and helpful. The resident cat roamed the closed garden and was the delight of the guests. Very homey place - and well situated for a quick walk to the Seine or to the Pantheon, Rue Mouffetard with its well-known street markets, and the whole Quartier Latin. We loved our stay and would gladly come again.

I’ve wanted to stay here since my first trips to Paris nearly half my life ago…. Finally. Absolutely delightful and there’s a resident cat. A superior room was all that was available, glad to have had it. (Peeked in one single room that was being renovated, good for someone young enough to be out all day and back only to sleep….) A guidebook from decades ago had warned against thin walls - either replaced or not present in the building I was in. Super quiet but for roadwork and renovations - neither of which will last forever. We chose not to have breakfast in the lovey courtyard, but it looked delicious. We did have wine in the garden with friends now living in Paris and I could remember a very young me wishing I could stay here. Very happy

Just be very careful to choose the most expensive rooms with garden view - we didn't do that and ended up, first, in the tiniest of all imaginable rooms in the oldest part of the hotel - I mean, there wasn't even room to open your suitcase. After inquiring, we were moved to a larger, barely serviceable room on the second floor, with high, porthole windows that didn't really admit any light. Nothing in the older part of the hotel has changed in 25 years - particularly the bathrooms - it was barely tolerable. Ditto wallpaper, curtains, linens - all ratty. Although I was quite sure I'd booked with breakfast, they charged me for it in the end. In short, unless you pay more, there's no point in staying here. The garden view rooms have updated bathrooms and modern beds - I nearly cried when I got a glimpse of one. And, yes, I know that one gets what one pays for, but it wasn't cheap by any means. I was in Paris in September and stayed in a hotel in the Marais that was the same price and positively luxurious. We stayed at the Grandes Ecoles out of sentiment - it's where we stayed 25 years ago - and we had a better room then. Oh - and no TV, no water or drink glasses, no effort at all to make anything comfortable - it was three days before they started bringing us complete sets of fairly ratty towels for two people. Sorry - Paris je t'aime, but this place not so much -
