If you want to be near the Latin Quarter, stay here
My wife and I (seniors from the US) had a fine stay in this apartment for all of Sept. 2010. Of the many vrbo units we’ve rented in the US, Mexico and Europe, this was most helpfully outfitted with maps, guidebooks, umbrellas, reading lamps, fast wi-fi, a washer/dryer, books to read, fans, coffeemakers, vacuum, cleaning supplies and even coffee/sugar/jam. And in perfect English the owner’s gracious daughter thoroughly explained how everything works. Pay attention! (At our last Paris apartment, the woman who met us with the key spoke only Italian!!)
The photos are accurate, they show exactly what you’re getting . . a modest but comfortable temporary home. There is a fully functional kitchen, a bath with tub and shower and plenty of hot water, LCD television with lots of channels (about eight in English), a good medium-soft queen bed, and heavy drapes to darken the place at night. There was little noise through the walls.
On the down side, rue Mazarine near rue de Buci is an extremely busy neighborhood (including jackhammers this month), much more so than our previous Paris rentals. If you really want to be near the fascinating Latin Quarter, go for it. If you need perfect quiet for sleep, think again. Also, it was worrisome never to get a real receipt for our deposit or a formal rental contract. Having said that, however, I do believe the owner is totally honest. You send your deposit, you will have the apartment. Enjoy.
