The Grandes Ecoles is like a traditional French country hotel that has somehow found itself set down in a leafy cobbled courtyard garden in the heart of the Latin Quarter. Shut off from the street by a high wall and solid doors it’s an oasis...More
We really enjoyed our stay here! The location is great in a quiet, safe neighbourhood with lots of restaurants, grocery stores and bars. The metro (line 10) is a short walk (5 minutes). The fact that it is off the street and has its own...More
Wake up to birds singing, breakfast in the walled garden and relax in a bedroom decorated in traditional French floral wallpaper, with floor to ceiling French doors. This hotel in the Latin Quarter, near the lively bars of La Place Contrascarpe and shops of Rue...More
I have a peculiar history with this hotel. Nearly 40 years ago when I was a student, I walked through the neighborhood admiring its links with 20th century authors in english (see more below). I spotted the hotel from the outside. At that time, I...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.
