This is a perfect 1 bedroom vacation rental (440 Sq. Ft., Sleeps 4) hidden in the very center of the premium part of the Saint Germain des Pres district on the Left Bank in Paris, France. It was completely remodeled and refurnished in 2011 and is located on a narrow one lane passage just a block from the Seine right at the Pont des Arts pedestrian bridge that crosses directly to the Louvre Museum. Here you can walk the small streets filled with every art gallery imaginable, relax at one of the many bistros, or browse the well known food markets on Rue Buci. This area is walking distance from the Louvre, the Jardin des Tuileries, Chatelet Les-Halles on the Right Bank, the Place Saint Michel in the Latin Quarter, Notre Dame Cathedral on the Ile de la Cite, the Ile Saint Louis, the Sorbonne, and even a bit further to the Jardin du Luxembourg.
This is a completely modern and restored one bedroom pied-a-terre that is nested high under the roof. It is sunny, calm, quiet, and overlooks a private interior courtyard filled with trees and flowering plants. Located on the 5th, and top, floor (without elevator so there are four flights of stairs) the views are of neighboring roofs and the sky. The whole apartment has high ceilings as it is directly under the roof and has old wooden white painted ceiling beams so it feels spacious. The main living room has a modern and comfortable double sofa-bed and two small utility tables. It is equipped with a wall mounted flat screen cable TV, stereo, and internet access with Wi-Fi. One end has a granite dining table (seats four) separating the salon from the kitchen area.
The kitchen has a refrigerator, a conventional gas convection oven, a four burner gas cook-top, a Microwave oven, Dishwasher, and a clothes washer/dryer combo machine.
The bedroom has a Queen Size bed and built in storage in the wall at the foot of the bed. The tiled bathroom has a basin, toilet, and large walk-in shower with an electric sky-light in the roof overhead.
My mother, sister & I shared this apartment during our week-long vacation in Paris. It's on a quiet street, but just a short walk to many museums, restaurants, galleries, gardens, metro stops, and shops. The apartment is clean, comfortable, and included everything we could need for our stay, like a fully appointed kitchen, iron, and portable fan. The pullout sofa bed was comfy & easier to operate than I expected. While the shower wasn't exactly hot, it was usually warm. We got used to the hike up the stairs by the end of the week, but I'm glad we didn't have very large suitcases.
Situated amongst one of the city's best art gallery districts and only a short walk from many of the major attractions, this flat suited our needs almost perfectly. In fact, we are seriously considering a return visit a few months down the road. As long as you don't mind occasional internal building noise (e.g. kids playing) or walking up/down four flights of stairs, this is fantastic accommodation for a couple or a small family.
We stayed in this flat for 5 nights and loved it. The flat was very clean, plenty of towels, great linens. The bed was very comfortable. You couldn't ask for a better location. Metro stations were within easy walking distance. The stairs to the flat weren't an issue for us. Staying there in July, it was hot at night without air conditioning but if the heat doesn't bother you, the fans that are supplied should suffice - the flat looks into a treed courtyard and that helps. The noise from the neighbours is noticeable at night with the windows open. If you wear earplugs (there was a supply available in the flat) you should be able to have a restful sleep.
We just returned from a month in Europe. A highlight was our stay at this lovely flat in Paris. It is a lovely space that has been remodeled very tastefully. Having a dishwasher and washing machine was a HUGE bonus. The bathroom was large for Europe and very nice. The location for this flat is unbeatable. We were able to walk just about everywhere we wanted to go. The neighborhood is fantastic with restaurants and cute streets just outside the door. The flat does have a four flight walk up, and it did not bother us one bit. It didn't seem like four flights, perhaps because of the charm of the old building and our excitement for returning to our lovely space. I highly recommend this unit to anyone wanting to feel like a local and be in the center of things.
We stayed in this apartment for a week in December. It was clean and in excellent condition. We found the heat easy to regulate and the wifi worked well. The bed was incredibly comfortable! The apartment was modern and plenty big for the two of us. It was up 4 flights of stairs in a building without an elevator -- not a problem for us. We found the location to be ideal. Bakeries, groceries, Metro, Louvre, all within easy walking distance. The apartment was on a quiet street in an area full of art galleries. Our favorite restaurant close by was Fish (La Boissonerie). We would definitely choose to stay here again.
I found this listing very accurate for this lovely apartment in a prime neighborhood for walking, sight-seeing to all the interesting attractions in Paris, fresh food shopping, gallery browsing, and a variety of restaurants. The spacious apartment has a very comfortable bed and is very quiet at night. The bathroom has a generously sized shower and the kitchen is very well supplied. Lots of windows allow light and fresh air into the space and it is very obviously well-maintained. Service by Hutton's Paris Apartments was excellent!
