    This is the mother of al schools, not only by its reputation but by its history and architectural perfection. I found overwhelming the sheer size of the building, covering a huge block. If you enjoy s...  more »

    Library access restricted to "certain specialties", while as a student we're looking for just a place to work, not necessarily to borrow books. More political science is accepted, but not the right, then the two are deeply linked, the first rule of politics is the rule of law.

    The inner court is deserted. That's good, after the excitement of the streets of Paris, spend a few minutes in a place of calm and contemplation with a stamp of prestige!

    A lot of good books. There are also the not found! But the rooms are very small and often full. A little noisy with old tables with a fixed footrest, very uncomfortable for tall people.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
