About the property

Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

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. It is on the 3rd floor (US standard) with elevator.

Entering the studio, one notices the magnificent stone wall, the traditional red tiles and the wonderful wooden beams. The living room has a large window with a view out on a quiet private courtyard full of greeneries. It is nicely decorated with paintings and furnished with a working desk, table, chairs, shelves and a top quality convertible sofa that sleeps 2. The table may be lifted up and opened to arrange a dining room where 4 will have dinner at ease.

A mezzanine can be accessed by a custom designed stair running along the stone wall. It is furnished with a double Futon (we limit rent to 3 guests. Ask specifically for 4 guests). .

The designed open kitchen is fully equipped (dish washer, microwave oven…) and is linked to the Living room by an American bar which can be used as dining table.

Bathroom offers shower, washing machine (no drier) sink and toilets.

The unit is next to another studio of 24 m², VRBO listing n° 297929, which may be rented together for friends.

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.

A quaint small apartment on the Seine near Pont Neuf.

  • 3 of 5

This apartment was small but sufficient for myself and my 13 year old son to visit in the summer. Unfortunately it is very hot in the apartment. It was too hot to be able to enjoy the space. There was a ceiling fan which circulated the air but did not cool off the apartment. The one window was left open during the time we were in the apartment but could not be left open at night for noise. The weather did cool off to 18-20 degrees and the temperature in the apartment was warmer than outside. This was better than when it was 30 degrees but still uncomfortably warm in the apartment. I would recommend a room fan especially for sleeping.

Otherwise it was a nice little apartment and the location was excellent for exploring Paris. It is a few blocks to the Metro and trains.

The "mezzanine" area where the bed is located is only about 4 feet high. You cannot stand or even kneel here. It is okay for older children.

If you're looking for a great location, this apartment is it! Just a short walk to many of the major sights of the city. Although a bit small, it worked fine for three adults for four days in Paris.The apartment was clean and had all the necessary amenities.

So convenient to major sights

  • 5 of 5

Compact apartment with loft. Worked well for myself and adult daughter. Pull out comfortable. Kitchen tiny but all necessities. Very clean. Washer a bonus with heated wall drying rack.

The apartment is on the Seine between the Louvre and Notre Dame. Metro closeby and easy trip thru out city, airport, Verseille etc.

Although small, but normal for Paris

I would stay here again.

Management responsive and very helpful.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Augustins! The location is definitely the biggest plus! Step out the door and feast your eyes on Notre Dame, Pont Neuf, and the Louvres! All easy walking distance. The historic and beautiful sights just roll out, one after the other.

The suite is quiet and warm, towels, sheets, etc are provided but there was nothing for the kitchen. There is a market very near to the suite.

Thanks! We would definitely come again!

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in "Augustins" from February 15 to 22 2016. The location is amazing - it could not be more central or better located. It is right on the Seine, directly across from Ile de la Cite, and within sight of the Louvre to the west, and Notre Dame to the east. The St-Michel/Notre Dame metro / RER train station is only about 400 meters away. We took the train directly there from CDG airport, and after a 5 minute walk we were at the apartment. The apartment itself is great - it had everything we needed for a week's stay. It is nicely furnished and very comfortable, and surprisingly quiet given that it is on a busy street. We felt very safe in this area no matter the time of day. The proximity to a grocery store, to shopping and to numerous restaurants was an added bonus. The one time we had a question, we called InBeauParis and the fellow we talked to was very helpful. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to other travellers to Paris.

Cozy apartment, great location!

  • 5 of 5

One of the saddest days of my life was the day I had to check out of this apartment! I spent over a week in it, and loved every minute. The location is so central that I was able to walk to Notre Dame, the Louvre, Musée Cluny, L’Orangerie, Musée d’Orsay, through the Latin Quarter and the Marais . . . or just hop on a bus or take the Metro from Place St. Michel to go anywhere. The courtyard view from the window inside made it a haven, and the view of the Seine when leaving the building is unbeatable. As a middle-aged woman traveling alone I was concerned about safety; this location is quite safe and I felt very comfortable coming in and out in the dark.

The apartment is in an old building in Paris, so of course it is small! However, great thought has been put into making the most of the space. I loved climbing up to the cozy sleeping loft; if you don’t like heights the sofa bed was quite comfortable as well. The space didn’t feel crowded even when there were 3 of us there. I recommend it for 1-2 people, but if you are out all day and just sleeping there, it can work well for 3 or 4 who don’t need privacy (the sleeping areas are open to each other so one can hear everything anyone else says).

Lastly, InBeauParis was wonderful to work with — the instructions are clear, check-in/out are easy, everything was professional -- which has not always been my experience with rental companies. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

I am definitely coming back -- 5 stars!!!
