First let me say that my wife and I are avid travellers, Europe, South and Central America on all sorts of budgets. I believe we have fair expectations and generally "roll with the punches". I feel this is an accurate assessment of Studio St. Severin. Here is what you should know. 1. Claude and Vioiaine(the owners) are wonderful honest people with tons of advice, and do not oversell their property. It is budget, it is old, and wonderfully it is in the heart of it all. 2. We had a hard time finding the apartment at first and realized the street numbers are a little confusing but eventually we found the front door just as pictured. Sadly the street is only 2 blocks long so I don't really know what our problem was in finding it. 3. Hundreds of restaurants within 5 blocks. 4. Directly off of the Metro and train line from the airport, it could not be easier to get there. 5. The studio we were in was overlooking a busy alley with restaurants right below. The studio is noisy into the evening as Parisians eat late. No big deal since you are eating late too. If you like it really quiet, I am sure there is a Holiday Inn for you somewhere right outside of the city limits. 6. The alley is an alley, therefore you are many times looking into the apartment across the way at another tourist in his underwear, no big deal since most times you are in your underwear at that moment too. There are curtains, but I don't like to miss anything. 7. When you arrive you find your door to the front of your building is also the back door to the kitchen of a restaurant, no worries, you soon will be lucky enough to know a real french chef! Bon Jour! 8. You really are only a block from the river and Notre Dame, it is a FABULOUS location. Bonus: when all the other tourists have to make a cross city trip to get back to their room, you get to just get up from the table at the restaurant and go upstairs. Strolling around the Notre Dame cathedral and the river at night is beautiful, and you are quickly back to bed. 9. Shopping for anything can be done within a few blocks, money exchanges as well. 10. The apartment is basic, but has the necessaries, comfy bed, new coffee maker, good locks, phone, etc. KEEP IN MIND when you first arrive your eyes are tired and harsh and you will not be overly impressed with what you see. Trust me, take a nap, shower, all of sudden you will feel like you are at home in your little Paris apartment, lucky you... I wish I was there right now
Location is vacation!
Our studios are located on Rue Saint Severin, across the famous church (see picture) in the Latin Quarter. You will be steps away from the romantic Bridges of River La Seine & church Notre Dame; at the heart of Paris in a pedestrian street lined with cafes, restaurants, bakeries and shops which create a festive ambiance.
But pragmatically being centred saves money....as you can walk everywhere to all major monuments.
