About Helen Wilson

My husband and I bought this studio on one of our trips to Paris. Its ideal location won us over immediately. Although we reside in Canada, Paris is our favorite European destination, so we find frequent excuses to spend time there.

Helen Wilson purchased this studio in 2002

Why Helen Wilson chose 5th Arrondissement Latin Quarter

Location, location, location!

This studio is very small, however it contains everything two people would possibly need to enjoy a very comfortable stay in one of the most romantic cities in the world.

What makes this studio unique

The studio is located close to everything a tourist in Paris could possibly want to see and do. There is a large outdoor market 50 yards away, held three times weekly: fresh food ,clothing, jewellry, you name it! There are a number of restaurants (French, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, Mexican) within a two block radius, There are three supermarkets, three pastry shops/bakeries, two or three large banks, ATM machines, laundromats, police station, gym, taxi stand, bus and metro stops close at hand. You will not need a car to explore this city! Notre-Dame and the Seine are both 1 block away, as the book-sellers that line the banks of the river. The Eiffel tower, the Louvre, the Musé d'Orsay are 40 minutes on foot, or 15-20 minutes by bateau-bus.

A gem of a studio, the location is superb!

  • 5 of 5

We never stopped marveling howe close we were to Notre Dame, St. Germaine, The Louvre...In fact we walked to all the top sites in Paris including Le Marais and Galeries Lafayette. The studio had everything we needed to eat in if and when we wanted and the loft bed was perfect for my daughter...being older I opted for the fold out sofa bed. We were welcomed with a lovely bottle of Merlot and a fresh artisan baguette and camembert and immediately devoured it. Thank you for a perfect long weekend in beautiful and exciting Paris.

In the heart of Paris!

  • 4 of 5

Location, location and location!! Perfect! Maybe 150 yards to the Seine, and only 50 to Boulevard St. Germain and the local taxi rank. We walked by Notre Dame and through the heart of the Latin Quarter almost every day, And don't forget St. Michel station, an eight minute walk, where you can catch a train direct to Versailles and Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports. Okay, the studio is a small space, but the bathroom is new with a great shower, and all you need is fitted carefully in place. Thank you Helen!

Studio Helene. Paris, France

  • 4 of 5

The studio is small to the point of being cramped, but has everything one needs. We stayed for 13 nights, and at the end of that time we were definitely looking forward to a regular mattress and more counter space, but the location was ideal - steps to the river, very close to Notre Dame and metro, RER and bus stations. Sylvaine was most helpful, and the taxi driver she recommended for us was a jewel. Great feeling of security from the four locked doors needed to gain entry to the studio from outside, and having only one set of stairs to go up was also convenient. The studio also comes with a phone, which we did not know about, and which could be very useful to some. The internet connection worked well. I'd recommend Studio Helene to friends.

MY HOME AWAY

  • 4 of 5

I try to visit this cozy studio once every year, and most recently in September, 2014.

It is centrally located in Paris, with everything in walking distance. From the Metro, to Norte Dame, to my favorite, the Batobus. The studio has been recently renovated and is even roomier and more comfortable than before.

It is most definitely my home away from home.

cozy Studio Helene

  • 5 of 5

My wife and myself have stayed at Studio Helene many times in the last several years, and we have come to think of it and the neighborhood as our home away from home. The queen bed is very comfy, the computer and WiFi work well, the shower and lots of hot water are great, and the frig and electric tea pot makes it easy to go out and bring back fresh patisseries to have with our tea.

Because it is 2 minutes to Notre Dame (where I do Tai Chi in the AM), and 2 minutes to Place Maubert with all it's liveliness and food shops, we are able to experience what it must be like to live in Paris. When we arrive, we are greeted warmly by the friendly people in the building.

Although the studio is small, it is very livable, and if you are with someone you love, you will find it very appealing.
