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 -

Loved this hotel. It’s in a great area of Paris. It is very comfortable and a little oasis in the middle of Paris. The breakfast is great and the whole ambience is perfect. I will definitely return. It is basic- there is no t.v and our room was quite small. But it has a lovely outside space and has a calm atmosphere.

Nice hotel with very nice staff. Nice, quiet room facing a yard. Good bed. I was though missing a TV and glasses and a bottle of mineralwater. Good breakfast with coffee and tea with baguette, croissant, cheese, yoghurt, juice and boiled egg.

When we arrived in Paris, some friends had gotten to the hotel first and were sitting under those umbrellas in the courtyard with wine and bread for us. It started out perfectly and stayed that way. Our room was right off the courtyard pictured and it was heavenly. Some of our party had windows on the cobblestone walkway and complained about some noise. The location was perfect for walking and finding restaurants and other things to do. Our first night, we walked down to a little plaza and there was a combo playing. Everyone agreed it was a great hotel.

I loved having breakfast out in the garden. Our room was spacious and well-decorated. Clean bathroom. Friendly personnel. The neighborhood outside is lively with some great restaurants,but inside the hotel gate it is calm and quiet.
