Sorbonne 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.

who knows with these people?

  • 1 of 5

I'm writing this because several things about our experience with these people have given us pause.

First, we had a reservation booked for July, had paid our deposit and received confirmation. The first odd thing we noted upon receiving the contract was a clause that prohibited us from ever saying anything negative in a review about the apartment. Well, that's not good. What do they have to hide? And it makes you wonder about the reviews that are there. We found a law suite between the owners and someone who had dared challenge this clause in the contract.

Second, we noticed a couple of months after we had booked that the apartment was still listed as "available" on the dates we'd reserved. We wrote to the owners wondering why this was the case and they assured us our reservation was "set in stone." (who needs to say that ever anyway? a reservation is, by definition, a reservation.)

But low and behold, we received a note not long after, dated April 9, 2016, which read --

"We have a CRISIS!

"Oh! Dear! Although we could have waited the last minute to find a solution before letting you know of our crisis and then refund your money we must act honorably and alert you in advance so that you could find alternative accommodations.

"Although it is against our best interests, it is our obligation to tell you that we have a crisis and thus not be able to accommodate you.

"Crisis – WATER LEAK - outside of our control; it seems the building next door has moved-on-its-foundation, straining inner pipes and causing water leak within the walls in our building necessitating major renovation which will start next month, by the City of Paris. There is today some water on the surface of the walls, but we fear we have no choice but to give permission to the workers to start construction. We spent the entire day on the phone, with Paris to understand the extent of the damage, the Paris Authorities’ Architects will dispatch a team in 2 weeks to fix the problem by breaking the walls between buildings to repair the fissured inner pipes. From our experience the French Government’s employees, there are usually late and inefficient. This job may take 2-3 months." >>

They sent our money back, which is nice, but I still wonder if they'd lowered the price following the attacks in Paris and then, when things returned to normal, got a better offer.

With a flood like this, how come we see 2 reviews of renters staying there in April!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This location was perfect for seeing all the sights in Paris with the Metro located very nearby and the city center within walking distance. The apartment was neat and clean and very comfortable. We very much appreciated the extra info on shopping and restaurant recommendations provided by the owners/caretakers. We can't wait to come back!

Fantastic location and value

  • 5 of 5

This property can not be beat if you want to be near the heart of the West Bank, Notre Dame and transportation. Claude and Shen provided very detailed guidance on how to find the apartment, gain access, and tips on having a safe and meaningful visit. When the original property we booked became unavailable due to a building maintenance issue just 3 days before my stay, Claude upgraded us to another property which was even better located at no additional charge. We enjoyed our short stay and highly recommend this property to others. Thank you very much.

The property had been flooded and we were unable to stay there

  • 1 of 5

Prior to our visit we were given excellent information about our studio apartment, its location, how to obtain the key etc.

On arrival we could not find the key, contacted the representatives of the owner that live in Paris, and were informed that the flat was flooded. We were told it might be best for us to seek alternative accommodation for our stay. We were able to find a hotel in Paris at such short notice, but the location was not as central.

We have been informed that we will be re-imbursed for the cost of the accommodation, and are currently sorting this out.

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.
