This hotel has 51 rooms in four buildings set around a cobble stone courtyard. The gate from the street into the courtyard is locked to non-guests after 8 PM. They do not want you bringing food into the room (for sanitary reasons I assume). But...More
We stayed there for 3 nights, each day was full of sightseeing and wonderment. We arrived @ about 10am and our room was not yet ready (check in 1.00pm), so we left our luggage at the charming reception, and with map in hand went walking....More

Stayed here two years ago and was pleased but NOT THIS TIME. WHAT A FILTHY DUMP and RUDE receptionist and hotel manager made matters worse. Traveling with my 81-year old mother, therefore I was very specific as to what room we wanted having stayed there...More
I was really looking forward to our visit to Paris and staying in the Hotel des Grandes Ecoles from the photo's and reviews I had seen on Tripadvisor. I was not disappointed at all. This hotel is a little gem. It is located in an...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.
