This studio is absolutely charming with vaulted ceilings in the heart of Paris.
You will appreciated the charm of old Europe. Located on the lower level of an 18th century building (down one staircase - no elevator), this renovated wine cellar has vaulted ceilings that are more than 3 centuries old.
It has been recently renovated (2012) and decorated with taste and comfort in mind (full bathroom + full kitchen). It has two windows facing a private courtyard.
We have been living in this area for many generations.
Henri Suarez purchased this apartment in 1700
This period building has been in the family for centuries. It's quiet and safe.

This studio was perfect for my trip. It was an EXCELLENT location and the apartment was clean and furbished in a way that really did make me feel at home and comfortable. Arranging my trip was very easy with great tips and advice from the woman helping me to book this location. I highly suggest staying in this apartment if you are looking for a 'headquarters' to a wonderful trip to Paris!
Great place for our first time in Paris! Small and perfectly located near metro stations. Natacha was so nice to let us leave our bags in the room on our last day while we explored the city some more in the morning. Would recommend for travelling couples!
What an ideal location for a visit to Paris: a charming flat in a historic building, meticulously renovated and carefully maintained! This is a lovely living space that has been tastefully restored in neutrals with splashes of color. The bright, cheery studio features comfortable beds piled with cozy, fresh bedding. The kitchen area includes state-of-the-art appliances and plenty of workspace. The bathroom has a large, modern shower and lots of thick towels and linens. We found everything absolutely spotless. Really, no detail has been spared to guarantee a wonderful place to return to after a long day of sightseeing. Telephone, television and internet connection are all a welcome connection. Perhaps the best part is Natacha and all that she does to guarantee an excellent experience for her visitors, from the superb advice she sends ahead of time about how to arrive from the airport or train stations, all the way to her willingness to help with any question which may arise. My daughter and I stayed for 5 days and could not have been happier with our visit; we were very, very sad to leave. Perhaps the best indication of our satisfaction is the fact that we have already recommended it to friends, will continue to do so, and greatly hope to return ourselves before long. Many thanks, Natacha!
My husband and I shared a week in this cozy apt the week of Sept 18, 2012. We had a fabulous time. Even though it is in basement, it had good lighting from ceiling windows. Windows can be opened for fresh air. We found the apartment to be all we needed. It was clean and everything in good working order. We felt that it was very safe and enjoyed the quiet neighborhood atmosphere even though we were in the heart of Paris. It is a great location with grocery store, wine store, cheese store, bakery, meats... all you need just within a few blocks. A great spot!!!! We would sure return. Barb Uram
My wife, daughter and I stayed at this studio from June 2-8, 2012. On the positive side, the studio is in a very safe area and in an excellent location with metro stations, restaurants etc very close by. The kitchen is well equipped with dishes, coffee maker, toaster, refrigerator etc and the decor is modern and comfortable. The owners Elsa and Natasha, were very friendly, organized and helpful.
I must be totally honest for the benefit of other travellers however, and say that other than the above plus points, the studio was a huge disappointment.
The first impression as you walk down the narrow stairway to the entrance door to the studio (really a converted cellar) is the overwhelming stench of musty, damp air. The musty smell does not get any better inside the studio although we found that running the dehumidifier 24 hrs a day helped (had to dump the collection bucket full of water twice a day) although you have to then put up with the noise from the machine. Further evidence of long term moisture exposure are causing paint and plaster to chip off throughout.
The lack of cleanliness was what really got us and pretty much match what the previous reviewer from Austin Tx complained about. My daughter found a black hair on her bed sheets. A filthy dry and stinky sponge was in the bathroom, the bathroom towels were dingy, old and gray and should have been replaced long ago. The carpets were reasonably clean in the open areas but the re were balls of dust under the beds and along the edges of the wall. We saw silverfish (yuk). The bathroom was absolutely filthy. The curtain "door", was old and at least 30 cm too long so it gets dragged like a mop, making it a tripping hazard. A bathroom really requires a solid door in my opinion. The shower was dirty with scum and black mold growing along the floor and ceiling tiles. The toilet had a slow leak which was hardly noticeable since the curtain mopped it up. The sink appears to be coming loose from the wall as the caulking is no longer sealing water away from the wall. Balls of dust and long hair were evident beside the ironing board next to the washing machine (note that there is no dryer).
Again, the location is excellent and the owners very friendly but unfortunately, this place will be a disappointment for travellers expecting clean accommodation.
This is our families' 4th visit to this apartment in just under 3 years. I was horrified to read the review "cleaning concerns". We stayed here early March and found their experience very different to ours. Given the age & cost of the apartment, perhaps their expectations were a little high? The apartment was clean & tidy and very homely. Our towels were not musty, there weren't any dust bunnies, and we actually loved the lighting in the bathroom - the mirror has a great light built in to it. So it just shows I guess how we all differ. I do feel though that the review was very unkind, and not truly reflective. It's not the Ritz, but a 17th century building!! The number of repeat visits indicates how much we love this place. We have recommended this apartment to family, friends & colleagues, and they have also had very enjoyable visits. The location is brilliant, so nice to be part of the "real Paris", not full of tourists. The choice of metro stations close makes getting around Paris easier, if that's possible. There is a brilliant supermarket just up the corner, and a wonderful boulangerie and cafe close at hand. When in Paris this time, we had family staying elsewhere in the city, and when visiting their accommodation, we were pleasantly surprised with our choice. It offers much better value and location for a very reasonable cost. So please don't be put off by the "cleaning concern" review - this place rocks!!
Our studio is ideally located in St-Germain des Près near the Seine river in the heart of Paris. Nearby you will find the Hotel Lutetia, the Bon Marché department store. Metro stations: Sèvres-Babylonne, rue du Bac.
Many historic places (Le Louvre Museum, Notre-Dame cathedral, the Latin district, Place de la Concorde, Les Champs-Elysées etc.) are located within walking distance.
