Stay in the prestigious " Saint Germain des Pres" neighbourhood and enjoy the famous left bank spirit in this cozy, luxurious, one bedroom apartment located on the first floor with elevator of a typical Haussmann building on rue Mazarine.
A very stylish apartment with classic wooden floor, high ceiling, antique furniture, and combined with high level of comfort (state of the art kitchen and bathroom) makes it a perfect place for two people in the very heart of our vibrant city.

We originally reserved another apartment for our stay, but the property manager unexpectedly cancelled our reservation one month prior to our arrival which left us scrambling at the last minute to find another place to stay. When finding another place, I felt it was important to speak to the owner of the property by phone to confirm our arrangements, not just handle it by email or deal solely with the property manager.
When I first inquired about this property, I asked for a call and the owner contacted me immediately, and I was able to reach her by email or phone whenever necessary. This was a huge reassurance throughout the process.
The apartment was clean and comfortable, everything as stated in the listing. The bed was very comfortable, and the room off the living room with the toilet was just fine. For anyone in the US, it might be a little odd, but I would even consider it an inconvenience when you consider everything else was perfect.
Perhaps the greatest thing of all was the location. This apartment is in the most perfect part of Paris with the Seine, Louvre, Notre Dame, Metro stations and Boulevard St. Germain within easy walking distance. The cafes and outside markets that line Rue de Buci and this entire area are wonderful. Despite the lovely cafes and "night life," the apartment was far enough away where it was quiet and peaceful and you can get a great nights sleep before exploring the city. Our nightly walks on the banks of the Seine are memories we will cherish forever.
If anyone needs a reference for this apartment, I'm glad to provide it. Just ask the owner for my contact information.
Stayed for two weeks Sep 2013. Just like the title says, it was all excellent. Yes, the toilet is in a small room separate from the bedroom (like the other reviewer stated), but that cannot be helped and is outweighed by all the other great features. Additionally, the neighborhood is fabulous...coming to life in the afternoon and well into the evening. Yet, with the windows closed, the sound was blocked. We loved the high quality street musicians, local restaurants, bakeries and supermarket. The bed was very comfortable and kitchen well stocked. Highly recommend.
We've just returned from a wonderful stay at this authentic Paris apartment. The location is perfect for exploring all over Paris, both within St. Germain des Pres as well as beyond, within a 10 minute walk of Notre Dame, the Louvre, etc. The apartment is well furnished, clean and pretty as well. The only area to be aware of is that the toilet is in a very small space off of the living room, separate from the shower/sink which is off of the bedroom. Other than that, the space is great and the hosts were very helpful!
It was a fantastic location, great apartment, just as it was pictured, close to many attractions , we were able to walk most places , great restaurants, grocery stores, and close to the metro stop.
I loved it! Would return in a heartbeat!
It was our first experience renting apartment for the vacation - will definitely do this again!
Wonderful place in the center of the city. You have everything you need for your stay in this apartment and you can walk everywhere (metro is 2 min away if you need it). Full kitchen, new comfortable queen-size bed. Feels like home. Description and photos give you accurate information about the place.
Bonus for those coming on early flights to Paris - by 11AM we were already settled in the apartment. No hotel can do this for you.
Owners are pleasure to communicate with (both during the rental process and while in Paris). Thank you!
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.
