Location is perfect and being on the Left Bank is not expensive.
This Hotel will not suit those wanting sheer luxury, but it suited us perfectly. No restaurant but they abound in the area and there is provision to eat food brought in on the...More
This was our first time staying in the Latin Quarter and at the Hotel des Grandes Ecoles. The tone of our visit was set by the lovely Marie on the front desk - she is so friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and was most sympathetic to the...More
I returned after a year away, and was again quite pleased with my stay. Rooms are slightly smallish, but face a nice green patio. Friendly staff. What I like most is its proximity to a great neighborhood, with lots of restaurants, shops, cafes, etc., on...More
This hotel was an unexpected delight. It has a wonderful cobblestone walkway up to the main hotel building, and its layout makes you feel like you're in the country. Very nice people, nice room. I wish I could be so pleasantly surprised by other hotels.
We loved the hotel and our room. Great price and charming street with lots to do within walking distance. The reason for 4 stars as opposed to 5 is that we went out and picked up some light bites for breakfast. We sat down in...More
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour 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 neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.

For a breakfast with eggs, great dress
We found the bistro 'Le Descartes' just down the block, you can see it to the LEFT as you exit the front gate of the hotel. They have complete breakfasts for a set price of about 10 euros including omelette, side salad, basket of fresh baguettes, butter and coffee.
Omelettes are on the menu all day, as in most other French cafes.
It's a very local place, in the evening the tv will be on with news or a soccer game, and neighborhood people enjoying a dinner and/or drink. The set menu is very reasonable, and it's a darkish place with wood tables and nice atmosphere. The barman and wait staff are friendly and attentive, we enjoyed it very much after discovering it!
Great desserts too. Open late. ...and a minutes walk back to the hotel.
