Overview

5th Arrondissement Latin Quarter Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 5 guests)

BONJOUR Paris! because it dates from the dawn of Paris.

Few apartments in Paris combine authentic wood beams and stones walls dating back the medieval ages. No expenses were spared to implement floor lights to highlight the beauty of the archeological walls; coupled with Louis XV mirrors and chandeliers. Back in times, it was occupied by the King's Knights.

This apartment is quiet, although located in one of the most visited street of Paris, Rue St Severin, steps from Notre-Dame, in the heart of historical Paris.

There is a King size bed and a double-bed in the bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped. The bathroom has a bathtub with shower. For those who really want to sample a flavor of Paris, BONJOUR PARIS! will be a true authentic Parisian experience!

LOCATION:

Contrary to their claim of being in the true center of Paris, most Hotels and apartments are not. Apply the 1-minute-rule, ask are any studio you want less than 1-minute-walk from the river? This studio is less than a minute walk, steps from the river in the historic heart-of-the-heart of Paris. Arguably the most lovely location in Paris, because a walk at midnight over the magic bridges will allow you to soak the wonders of Paris then walk safely home, after dark among all the tourists in the brightly lit streets lined with shops, bakeries, cafe and restaurants and opened late.

HIDDEN SAVINGS:

You will also save money. First by walking everywhere and avoid taxis and / or public transportation. Secondly, you will save money on food, the apartment is near a fantastic SUPER Gourmet Stores and famous fresh market “Marche Maubert” known to Parisians mainly, which offers the most delicious fresh and cooked food, cheese, bread and finest wines.

LE METRO

1 Minute walk to subway St Michel and 2 min. walk to RER B direct line to CDG Aiport.

We enjoyed the great location!

  • 4 of 5

We really loved the apartment and the fantastic location! It's so close to many restaurants, sites, the metro and the grocery store. The owner sent a lot of great information about the apartment and the area. The only possible downside is that there is no one onsite to greet you and show you things and if you need something the owner discourages you from contacting them.

We Enjoyed our stay - Book this place now!

  • 5 of 5

We had a true Parisian experience staying in this studio apt in Paris. Location was top notch and communication was reliable and prompt. We met Sammy the caretaker who was helpful and courteous. We walked to all the sightseeing spots with the metro station nearby. Being in the heart of the Latin Quater gave us many options for dining and shopping. We loved the chic trendy docor mixed the the old in this historical building. Definitely a place I would stay again and recommend to others. Thank you for making our trip a memorable one.

Safe, lovely hideaway in the heart of Paris

  • 5 of 5

This apartment & the owners are topnotch in all ways. The unit is chic & elegant with the addition of Historical significance. Although it is listed as a one bedroom, the door that shuts between the two beds allows for separate & complete privacy from each other. Parisian apartments are always small in comparison to American standards, but the layout & décor of this one gives it a feeling of space larger than it's actual dimensions. My niece & I were on this trip together & felt so at home & happy with the accommodation. We enjoyed thoroughly our excursions outside the apartment, but were always quite pleased to come back to it's pleasant & private ambiance. The rooms are a ways from the front of the building so there is no noise from the street, which is busy with restaurants & tourists. We were close to the Metros & RER, bakeries, the wonderful MONOPRIX, pharmacy, shops & so much more. I have traveled to Europe many times & have never before experienced such detailed & complete instructions from the owners. This is a self catered lodging & as such it is expected that the guests are not to be in need of babysitting. Nonetheless , the instructions forwarded to me before my trip were extremely detailed with pictures. When one arrives from the states, it is most always an overnight flight & one is tired & impatient. It was so nice to have directions that walked me through the initial process. Also, the internet worked perfectly & the phone that allows for calls to landlines back home was a bonus.

You Have To Experience It To Believe It!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do this place no justice. I was traveling with my wife and two kids aged 6 and 2.5. We had a great time in this incredible location. While we have been to Paris many times, even for the first time visitor this place is perfect. You are close to the Metro, the bus, and all of the sights. The Latin Quarter and St. Germain are less than an eight-minute walk - even with kids in a stroller. Behind the big gold mirror is another room with just a bed. Perfect for the kids to share and it allowed them privacy for naps and for sleep. The other awesome part of being a small family is that the toilet is located in the entry (weird as it sounds, but turns out to be awesome when traveling as a small family to not have to disturb the kids as you go to the WC!!!). Further, the only noise we heard was the upstairs neighbor's high heels on the floor (you are in an apartment building in a big city in an old/ancient building - what do you want?) and the bells from St. Severin Church which is pure magic. We found the apartment spotless, the entry into the building as advertised, and the location better than expected. You HAVE to stay here if you are coming to Paris! We seriously tried to find a negative and could only find one thing: you are in a highly "touristy" area. The restaurants close to the apartment are geared toward that and not authentic Parisian. It has nothing to do with the apartment, but more about its location. Because of this, we suggest a quick walk further away (no more than 10 minutes) to get some authentic Parisian hospitality, food, and wine. All of that said, there is a pastry shop that sells incredible croissants and it is around the corner and about a 1.5-minute walk from the apartment. In summary, there isn't a better apartment for the money, a better location for touring (2 minute walk to the Metro, 12 minute ride to the Eiffel Tower; 5 minute walk to Notre Dame; 18 minute walk - with a stroller - to the Louvre), and a better place for a small family or romantic getaway with your special person. Finally, our 2.5 year old decided to hide her mom's wallet in a cabinet and we left not knowing this. Within 18 hours, Samy the caretaker had contacted us and asked where they could send the wallet at our next destination. Honesty, integrity, and service!

Bonjour Paris!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our niece and nephew and loved it! So much better than staying in two separate hotel rooms! Although a bit snug for four of us, the location can't be beat and we were very comfortable. Easy to get around to anywhere in the city.

Be sure to have a good light handy when you first arrive--the hallway is dark and entry the first time is a bit complicated. There are minuterie lights in the hallway, but you have to know where to look for them.

We would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to friends!
