Great apartment - perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We (3 people) recently spent 5 nights in this charming apartment, located in a very central location - directly across the river from the Louvre, a couple of blocks from the Musee d'Orsay, near St. Germain, a few blocks from Monoprix grocery store, and has bus and RER stops nearby. The pictures accurately represent the apartment, which has many useful amenities, i.e., stove, oven, dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, refrigerator, fan, clothes drying rack, electric towel rack, tv, free wifi). Although it is small, we were quite comfortable in it and found it to be very clean and quiet. Although it was quite warm during our visit, we opened the windows and used a rotating fan to keep both rooms cooler and we were just fine. I think other reviews have noted the low ceiling, but that is just due to the building's construction. My son, who is 5'11", did have to duck his head to be under the shower head, but it was not a big deal.

David and his wife were very gracious and answered all of our questions, prior to and during our trip. They were very fast to respond to any questions we had about the apartment, during our stay. We appreciated all of their Paris recommendations and tips!

We would try to stay in this apartment during future Paris visits and would not hesitate to recommend staying at this apartment to any of our friends. Thanks to David and his wife for helping to make our Paris trip so wonderful!

Excellent apartment in an ideal location for a Paris vacation

  • 5 of 5

This well-appointed and well-maintained one bedroom apartment on the left bank of the Seine is an excellent value. It is clean, comfortable and quiet (on the inside courtyard of a Quai Voltaire building), conveniently located directly across from the Louvre and two blocks from the Musee D'Orsay. Although small, the kitchen area has everything you'd need to eat in, there is a comfortable couch, table and TV in the sitting room, and the bedroom is large with a very comfortable large bed that has a firm mattress. The bathroom is clean and well-appointed, though the ceilings are low so if you're tall you'll have to duck to get into the separate toilet area. The apartment has baseboard heating that kept us toasty as the November days got cooler. The apartment has several windows but no cross ventilation, so it might get very warm in the summer as it doesn't appear to be air conditioned. There is a Metro stop across the bridge at the Louvre, and the shops, restaurants and bakeries of St Germain are only a few blocks away within easy walking distance.

David our host was very accommodating and answered all of our questions with many helpful suggestions. My wife and I highly recommend this apartment and will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Paris.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for your message. For information, The apartment is naturally fresh during summer (not warm) because it's a very old building from 17th century with large wall and 2 fan (dyson) are available but not useful. It will be a pleasure to welcome you again during summer. Best regards, David

Charming cozy retreat in the best location

  • 5 of 5

Even before we arrived here we had heard from David and had received great information on the arrondissement as well as tips for touring, shopping and eating out. We felt so welcome from the start. We had 3 amazing weeks here. This apartment is in a wonderful central location. Walking distance to many attractions and close to bus and subway although we didn't use them as we walked everywhere. David's wife met us and explained how all the appliances worked. There is also a detailed written package provided. Everything is here, you just need to walk in, unpack in the lovely walk in closet and enjoy Paris. If you wish to eat in, there is a well thought out tiny kitchen. If you want to eat out, there are all kinds of restaurants in the area at every price point. The apartment is spotlessly clean and a service comes in each week to change the bed and towels and clean, which I thought was a nice touch. We two were quite comfortable. Sadly we must leave here today, but hope to be back to Paris and this apartment again in the near future.

Charming apartment close to everything.

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed my stay in this apartment with a friend of mine. It was very clean,small,but efficient. David and his wife were very caring and she met us when we arrived and showed us around to make sure we knew where everything was located. I don't know that four adults could stay here comfortably as there is one small bathroom and separate toilet. Also the ceiling in the living/2nd sleeping room is low so anyone that is tall might not fit. The couch in the living room opens to a bed and is not that easy to unmake and put back into place each day, so we just left it as is and sat on it. If there were two couples staying in the apt. it would be quite awkward in the evening as there is no other place to sit. But for two people it is fine. The best part about this apt. is the location and the charming courtyard located right down stairs.

It was parfait! The Perfect location - enchanting courtyard - absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5

I wish that everyone could have the opportunity to stay in such a wonderful place in Paris at least once in their lifetime. It was magical; the quiet and beautiful Parisian courtyard inside the door; a magnificent view of the Louvre and the sounds of a busy Paris street awaited- just outside. My husband and I were truly charmed beyond words and the owner was fantastic!

My only regret- I left my heart in Paris and I would like to have it back❤️😩򚝤️

Fabulous apartment - cannot wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, and our 30 year old daughter, were delighted with our 10- day stay in David's apartment in early May, 2016! We really cannot say enough good things about our experience. It began with David, and his sweet 6-year-old son greeting us at the apartment and explaining the few items that were not self-evident. (The combination washer-dryer was new to us and we appreciated David's clear instructions.)

We cannot say enough good things about the apartment! First, it is just as nice as the photos indicate. No photo-shopping here - the apartment is exactly as advertised. The bedroom is large with a very spacious closet, the bathroom is modern and the living room and dining table were very comfortable. Our daughter slept on the couch in the living room and remarked about how comfortable it was. The kitchen is tiny by American standards but is a wonderful study in efficiency. We enjoyed breakfasts and occasional lunches at the apartment but took advantage of the fabulous dinner options Paris has to offer.

The location of the apartment is PERFECT- half way between the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame right on the Seine - it seriously does not get any better than this. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. On a previous trip we stayed in the 8th arrondiissement and now realize how important location is to enjoying this wonderful city. Also, the apartment overlooks the interior courtyard and was very quiet. (An artist was selling a painting of the entry into the courtyard which we bought and are now enjoying. It is a wonderful reminder of our fabulous vacation.!)

David was a very gracious and thoughtful host. He gave us his contact information and encouraged us to contact him if we had any questions during our stay. He provided helpful recommendations about local restaurants, supermarkets, etc. We decided to extend our stay and he was very accommodating of our request. Finally, he arranged for a driver to take us to the airport on the morning of our departure which was greatly appreciated.

We were sad to leave, but are looking forward to staying in this delightful apartment during our next visit!
