Monnaie Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Exquisite and central in Paris ! Nearby the Louvre, Notre Dame, and Saint Germain shopping area.

Located in an ancient stone building by the border of the Seine river, the studio is right in the art & antique shop district. It is facing the oldest bridge of Paris, the Pont Neuf which leads directly to the ile de la Cité, with Notre Dame Cathedral on the right. Crossing the Seine, one reaches the Louvre museum in 2 mn. The studio is also neighbouring the lively heart of the Saint Germain area and the Latin Quarter.

Transportation is the easiest : Quai des Grands Augustins is 2 mn from subway Cité or Saint-Michel and 5 mn from subway Odeon or Saint Germain des Prés.

This 24m2 studio is perfectly adapted for a couple (or a family of 3) for a short to medium length stay. It sleeps a maximum of 3 guests (1 DBL + 1 sofa DBL convertible). It is on the 1st floor (FR standard) with elevator.

Entering the studio, one notices the stone wall, the wooden floor and the wonderful wooden beams.

The living room has a large bay window, which offers a nice view on a quiet private courtyard full of greeneries.

Design of the studio was carefully done. Materials are of top quality, wood and metal and modern. The studio is furnished with a working desk, a TV, a table, chairs, shelves and a comfortable convertible sofa that sleeps 2.

The mezzanine can be accessed by a stair running along the wall. It can be used for sleeping only as it is not full body height. It is furnished with a double Futon (we limit rent to 3 guests. Ask specifically for 4 guests). Decoration is charming.

The designed open kitchen is equipped with microwave oven, refrigerator, stove…

Bathroom offers a modern comfortable shower with fixed and handy shower, sink and toilets. The bathroom washer washes but does not dry.

One immediately feels relaxed in this wood and stone atmosphere, bathed in light and viewing the greeneries in the courtyard.

As a bonus, Phone calls to land lines in France, and to US, Canada and Australia are generally free. It is also true for more than 50 countries. Moreover, calls to cell phones towards specific countries (often US & Canada) may also be free. Ask us for detail as it may vary with time and policies of operators.

This location is a perfect base to visit Paris. It stays 15 minute by subway to most interesting Paris locations AND is a very charming and restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums.

The unit is next to another studio of 24 m², VRBO listing n° 320494, which may be rented together for friends.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at apartment Dauphine from April 3rd, 2013 to April 13th,2013. We took the train directly to the apartment and then retrieved the keys from the key safe with out any issues, my sister waited with the luggage while I retrieved the keys. The location is perfect for visiting Paris as everything was in close proximity to the apartment. The unit was clean and fully equipped for our needs. The court yard side was very quiet compared to the main road Quai des Grands Augustins. On several occasions, we were lucky to hear another person in the building playing a grand piano.

Thank you the use of the lovely apartment.

Dauphine was perfect for our two weeks in Paris. The location couldn't be more convenient and the neighborhood was delightful, including one of our favorite hangouts, right outside the door - Chez Nous (a wine bar with tasty small bites, vibrant crowd and a friendly young owner). Dauphine itself is accessed through two well kept courtyards and a cool old staircase. The apartment looks out at a beautiful courtyard. Even with the windows open it is still very quiet and tranquil (at times you can hear students practicing at the music school below). The apartment is very clean, well kept, comfortable and efficient while including tons of storage for bags, clothes and shoes. Don't feel like you need to bring a ton of clothes because it does include a washing machine. Bottom line is it was perfect for our family (two adults, 9 year old & 12 year old). We can't wait to stay there again and would highly recommend it!

Beautiful apartment superbly located

  • 5 of 5

• Exceeded expectation.

• Beautiful Parisian building, incredible location, handsome cobbled entrance courtyard.

• Apartment is bright with floor-to-ceiling windows that open wide over leafy courtyard.

• Beautifully finished with everything you would need and more for a few days or week in Paris. Once day we spent happily reading in the apartment until only going out for dinner at 10pm, it is light, spacious and very comfortable.

• I have stayed in Paris apartments before, this is fantastic value for money and we'll be back.

• Bedroom is mezzanine floor and futon (though lots of space either side) so you do need to be agile to get up there and although there are lots of fans to use, it will be hot in summer - of course there is the fabulous windows downstairs so airy regardless.

• We booked this for the windows and light, everything else was an absolute bonus, particularly when you factor in the location. We wanted to be in Paris but we also needed to rest and read and this was the place to do it.

• Stunning beams, high quality fittings, surprisingly spacious bathroom, super shower!

• Great people to deal with, good communications, deposit returned promptly.

• Book with confidence for a spacious (for Paris) romantic and high quality hideout in a stunning city - we loved it and will be back to Dauphine in a flash!

• Over the years I have stayed in many rental apartments around Europe. This is th first time my partner has stayed in one instead of a hotel, my only problem now is that I have to find a 'Dauphine' every time I look for a city apartment!

Wonderful apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This was my very first trip overseas, so needless to say I was very concerned about finding a decent place to stay. I am so glad that I went with In Beau Paris. Every single aspect of the process, from communication to payment, was clear and simple. The price was beyond reasonable, considering the fantastic location and the apartment itself was AWESOME. Clean, warm, stocked with enough items to get me started, and easy instructions for how to work the appliances. The location was TO DIE FOR. I was right on the Seine, but couldn't hear any of the street traffic. The building has a code and a gated entrance inside, so I never felt unsafe. I could walk to Notre Dame and the Louvre in a matter of minutes, grocery stores and restaurants were right around the corner, and I had three Metro stations within a five minute walk. It was absolutely PERFECT. The apartment was exactly as depicted in photos, so no buyer's remorse. Check-out was easy, too. I was grateful for their instructions including a list of taxi numbers, because I called for a taxi, dropped off my key, and the taxi was waiting right there once I was done. I had a FANTASTIC time in Paris, and a lot of it was due to my wonderful apartment. I could pretend to be an expat, if only for ten days. I will absolutely come back to the city in the future, and I hope to rent that exact same apartment when I do.

Lovely nest in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed the 'Dauphine' apartment for its location, comfort and convenience. Being a short walk from the Ile, St Germain and right on the river makes the location perfect for Left Bank fans as well as those who like to stroll the Seine. The apartment's quirky charm maximizes the use of space while providing a nice sitting area and full use of of a kitchen and bathroom. The host is quite good at making our arrival and departure easy and convenient. The loft bed is firm and comfortable. Plenty of hot water in the shower. A very nice and large window facing the courtyard. In all, a place worth visiting and considering for our return trip!

Perfect in every way...

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Apt. Dauphine for 3 weeks during the 2015 Spring season, and it was perfect. The apartment is designed like a ship's cabin, streamline, elegant, efficient. We are aged 58 and 65, and very active, so we found the ladder to the loft bed safe and manageable (this is something to consider for disabled or elderly travelers...) Everything we needed was there, and although the location was on a super-busy intersection, the peaceful sounds of the rear courtyard were the only things we heard (these included the nesting birds in the fragrant wisteria vine just outside to the window, and the drift of piano and cello music from our very talented neighbors...). We rarely got an early start on the day because it was so pleasant just hanging out in the apartment! The bed was very firm and comfortable, and the bathroom had all the modern fixtures you could ask for. It was perfect being just one flight up from the street, and having Pont Neuf, Isle de la Cite, and St Germain des Pres neighborhood so close was ideal. The one time we could not get on the Internet, we got immediate help from the owner and the problem was fixed. We did all our grocery shopping on nearby Rue de Buci (the best people-watching is there) and favorite local establishments were Semilla Restaurant, Opium (for oysters), Cafe Bonaparte (organic, or "Bio", meat and veggie options), and Paul bakery... If you need a break from the tourist spots, check out the movie houses around l'Odeon (no problem if you don't speak French, there are plenty of American films in original English version ("v.o."). We would stay in Apt. Dauphine in a heartbeat the next time we travel to Paris. Thank you, Jean Noel and company!!

The apartment is truly perfect and, as you pointed out, although on a super-busy intersection, the only sounds one can hear are of the rear courtyard.

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Dauphine for four nights in February 2015. Our children 8 and 9 years old loved the apartment. We found it to be very clean and well stocked with essential supplies. The location was ideal for discovering the Latin Quarter, Notre Dame, Saint Chapelle and much much more. We loved our stay and can’t wait to come back.
