Guestbook comments from the owner


Planned a trip to Paris in mid-September, it all started with the search for an apartment. I would like to leave feedback about it exactly.

Found great variation in the Latin Quarter, a studio apartment is very bright and cozy. Located near Notre Dame de Paris, in the heart of Paris. From the window of the apartment offers a wonderful view of the small streets and restaurants, often held performances of various local celebrities and the window came the chants of Paris, which further immerses us in the romantic atmosphere of Paris. Near a lot of trade stands where you can buy gifts for the whole family.

The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay: internet, all appliances, TV, hair dryer, kettle, microwave oven, coffee maker, toaster, washing machine ... and more.

Very easy to reach from the airport Charles de Gaulle (CDG)., A straight branch. 4 near the subway station, two bus stops from which you can transfer to the tour bus.

If you want to find a beautiful, bright, not very expensive apartment in the center to stay with a guy or girl friends, definitely Book, will be pleased!!

Thank you! Come again!!

My take on Rue Saint Severin

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for 5 nights (Sat thru Wed).

Let me say, the apartment is excellently located. You are a 5 minute, or less, walk from Notre Dame and ground zero for Paris sight seeing. We walked absolutely everywhere. We even walked home from the Eiffel Tower, which took about 45 minutes or so; no need for the metro, unless you want to.

My wife and I brought our daughter to Paris and the apartment is adequate for 3, better for 2.

Complaint wise.... well, there would be the bathroom. It's not quite as nice as the rest of the apartment. It could be a bit cleaner (change the shower curtain every once and a while) and larger (too small even for Paris). Thankfully, there's a door between the kitchen and living area and this became the 'bathroom' door, as the bathroom is just off the kitchen, so you could actually move.

The only other thing is the noise at night. Weekends they are partying it up downstairs until way too late/early, especially for an old fart like me (41). Even when they aren't partying it up the recycling truck emptying a ton of glass is your alarm at 4 in the morning.

We used our phones as a sound machine at night and this was adequate to block things out well enough, as well as running the provided fan.

The washing machine/dryer is an awesome touch; knowing we had this allowed us to pack lighter! Easy to use with provided instructions.

Instructions provided to access apartment and get on wifi are very good. We never actually met/saw apartment owner during our stay.

Would I rent here again? Yes, for sure. It's not luxury, but it's location, location, location. Not to mention the price is right!

Enjoy Paris, it's amazing!

Great location, nice rental.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 nights here and were quite satisfied. The apartment is on the 1st floor (1 flight up) in a busy neighborhood, but the windows are good quality and keep out the noise. On hot evenings, the electric fan provided can easily mask the sounds from outdoors. The apartment has all the necessary amenities--washer, fully equipped kitchen, fast internet, etc., and is tastefully decorated. The bed frame might need a little TLC (nothing affecting sleep, more decorative), and the bathroom is a little small, but for the price and location, this place is a great bargain. I would certainly stay here again.

Apartment as central starting point with potential

  • 3 of 5

+ die Beschreibung der Wohnung war - in Bezug auf die Lage >*sehr zentral*, das Layout >*angenehm*, Ausstattung >*wie beschrieben*, usw. - genau

+ der Eigentümer bietet einen perfekt organisierten Check-In-Service, der Kontakt war 1A

- auf den ersten Blick sauber und hübsch, bei genauerem Hinsehen leider nicht seeehr sauber/gepflegt u. auch ein bisschen verwohnt

- wir nannten 'unsere Straße‘ liebevoll, aber mit gerümpfter Nase.. ‚Rue du fromage‘ - denn leider befinden sich gegenüber der Wohnung und in unmittelbarer Nähe einige 'Käse-Fondue-Restaurants'. Der Käsegeruch steckt richtig in dem Haus, besonders in Treppenhaus und Wohn-/Schlafraum (Fenster zur Straßenseite) drin. leider leider :/

+/- für unseren Aufenthalt (3 Nächte) war's okay- weiterempfehlen würden wir die Wohnung, besonders aufgrund der "Käse-Situation", nicht

Beautiful Apartment with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has everything you need for long or short stay.

Antoine is fantastic and so helpful, polite and understanding.

Merci beacoup Antoine !! :)

The apartment is so neatly presented.Things like the iron and hairdryer and ironing board. ( not that I used it it's a holiday) are all very cleverly hidden in the drawers and cupboards. Even the book instructions for the washing machine is there, just in case you have never used a front loader. Like me.

Plenty of extra blankets in the cupboard if you need to be more snug, but when I was there the temperature outside was around 3°C-7°C ( sometimes raining) and the heaters/radiators were completely sufficient. I didn't use any extra blankets and I was warm all night.

Every appliance you could need in the Kitchen. Plus heap of pots and cooking utensils. Dish washer and fridge all in a very neat modern integrated kitchen. So easy to use and keep clean.

Any food you can think to eat is in walking distance. In the same street! You could find yourself not even needing to leave Rue St Séverin itself you will still have a lot of choice. The fast food/ kebab shops are good,

There is also beautiful church in the same street from around the 11th century The Church of Saint-Séverin.

You can pretend you live Paris in this lovely Apartment. So enjoy. Go to the local food shops and experience living like a local.

Because the apartment is so easy to get to. If you get tired when you're out and about you can come home make a cup of coffee or tea, freshen up and head out again. It's wonderful like having a home away from home.

Easy to walking. Get a map and enjoy!

I was travelling by myself, but the apartment is perfect for a couple, or two people, or three that don't mind sleeping in the same room, and of course Parents with children.

If you are early risers you mightn't get much sleep as it is a lively area especially on weekends, but you can sleep in as it's very quite in the late morning. Depends on why you are in Paris?

Also easy to get to from the airport if you choose the train. ( RER B blue line from CDG to St Michel/Nôtre Dame) Easy to get anywhere in Paris on the Metro or RER. Also just around the corner is the bus stop for Paris hop on and hop off and also along the Bridge ( Pont) across from Notre Dame Cathedral. there are a four different routes that you can swap on and off.

This apartment is fantastic and value. Please look after it. Antoine has done a great job. :)

I can't say enough good things!

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay here based on glowing reviews from previous guests and all I can say is that they were all spot on! In fact, our expectations were far exceeded. When we dropped off our luggage on arrival the apartment was being scrubbed spotless by the cleaners. We came back to the apartment to find it in impeccable condition. The location is perfect - right above the restaurants and walking distance to Notre-Dame & the heart of the city. We had everything we needed and more including wifi, washing machine and fully-equipped kitchen. I really appreciate Antoine's fast and reliable communication. Thanks again! I have already started recommending the apartment to friends planning to visit Paris and this is definitely where we'll be staying next time we are back. Perfect for a couple.

Paris in September

  • 5 of 5

This studio apartment was perfect for my wife and I. We spent 4 nights here and enjoyed the centralized location very much.

The apartment is exactly as advertised. We had plenty of space for the two of us and all the amenities we needed (towels, bed linens, full kitchen, hairdryer, washer/dryer, etc). The wifi worked quite well and we used it to plan our day on the iPad every morning. Another plus about the wifi is you can log in at many local businesses that use the same system "Free Wifi". It was quite handy when we were at a restaurant and needed to find directions or research anywhere. The Metro is just around the corner and we used to to get almost everywhere (airport, eiffel tower, etc.). There are plenty of places nearby that are easy to walk to as well. We did not use a cab the entire trip.

The street below the apartment is lively and crowded from afternoon to late in the evening. I could see how the night club across the street could be loud to people who go to bed earlier in the evening. You cannot hear the music, but the people entering and exiting are quite loud. This did not bother us because we are night people ourselves. I would also recommend avoiding the restaurants in this section. They are tourist traps and there are restaurants just a few blocks away that are excellent!

Also, be careful on the stairs heading up to the apartment, they are narrow and not evenly spaced. It was not a problem for us most of the time, but after a few glasses of wine we needed extra caution while going up and down.

Antoine, the person who handles the booking, was helpful and quickly replied to emails.

Overall, the apartment was clean, in a perfect centralized location, comfortable, and to top everything off it was a great bargain as well!
