We were looking for a small hotel on the Left Bank of Paris and had Hotel des Grand Ecoles recommended to us. It was exactly what we were looking for. A small French hotel not a large urban one. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We really appreciated the welcome we got after a long flight from Seattle. It... More

My friend and I stayed here for the past weekend. Our room, 106 was above the reception and close to the elevator which was noisy. The view was of the back of an apartment complex and one of the neighbours was extremely noisy until about 4am. The room was supposed to be a Twin Plus (€145 per night) but it... More

Absolutely zero WIFI: even though it says it's connected it doesn't work. You will have to go to cafes and restaurants to get WIFI. This makes it very difficult, especially when traveling alone. The front desk people are really nice, except for (I think) the manager, Marie. Extremely snooty and was very surly that I asked to use their phone... More

For the end of our two week trip to the South of France, my wife and I had booked an Air B&B flat in Rue Cardinal Lemoine. It turned out to be a claustrophobic cupboard, carved out of a much grander salon, with a bed perched precipitately under the ceiling; we feared sleepless nights, climbing up and down the rickety...

Clean and friendly good value hotel in a convenient neighborhood that's not too touristy. We had a twin room on the 3rd floor with a beamed ceiling, large bathroom, great shower, nice bath amenities. Very quiet considering you are in the center of Paris. Good value breakfast French Style, with more coffee than you would get at a cafe, but... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Des Grandes Ecoles. Great location. Tucked into a quiet courtyard but close to restaurants and stores. Rooms are small. WiFi is just dreadful. No radio or TV. No newspapers. Bring your books and do not spend much time in the room. Breakfasts are fast and fun. Front desk is highly efficient. Enjoy.

What great place to stay. The location is in the Latin Quarter. Although a vibrant and active neighborhood the hotel was a quiet oasis in this neighborhood. With the courtyard that closed off the hubbub outside. The courtyard and gardens were very pretty with tables and chairs to have coffee or enjoy some wine. The room was small but well... More

Clean, friendly, nicely appointed property within a block of Rue Moufftard, the Parthenon, easy walking distance to Notre Dame, St. Chapelle, Ile St. Louis, etc. A real bargain! It is several beautiful buildings behind an entrance gated has lovely courtyard with tables and chairs.]

I`ve stayed at this small boutique hotel a few times and consistently been satisfied with the size and quality of the rooms as well as the rates. The neighbourhood is compact and full of places to dine, both casual and a couple up scale ones. This is student city with a few tourists sprinkled in. They have daily made service... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
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.
