In Saint Germain des Prés, you are in the area of antique shops and art galleries. You are also in the district literary where large bookshops like La Hune or L’Ecume des Pages have pinion on street.

You are two steps from la Seine which is at the bottom of rue Bonaparte where you could stroll along the quays and bargain hunting among the booksellers or take a walk on the Pont des Arts, now obligatory for all lovers.

Saint-Germain, a central district steeped in history. Whether at midday or midnight, the streets of the Saint Germain district are always filled with life. You will love this district where good cheer prevails. Many artists have walked the streets of this neighborhood, many singers have sung its praises, and every street here has a million stories to tell. Rue des Canettes, popular with student youth for many centuries, is well known for its little bars and cafés where people drink up before moving on to the latest cellar bars playing jazz music.

Great, spotless apartment. Excellent welcome.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment, ideally located to discover the centre of Paris.

Perfectly clean and well-equipped.

Communication was perfect.

The 90-something steps to get there were well worth it!

In short: highly recommended.

Perfect location, charming and spacious apartment with good amenities

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this apartment, and the owner. My husband and I stayed here for our first trip to Paris, June 13-20. This apartment was exactly where we wanted to be. We had phone and text support from three people who were very attentive. The apartment is comfortable and clean and well decorated. We appreciated the reliable WIFI and the washing machine! There are 4 flights of stairs, which we were prepared to climb, and they gave our legs and lungs a work-out. We are in our late 40's but keep in shape. Be ready! The one serious drawback was the heat. The weather was unseasonably hot (a phrase we may need to drop thanks to global warning) and the portable air conditioner provided could not help. We were also provided with good floor fans, which did make things tolerable in the mornings and evenings, however if you keep the windows open, you will hear the street noise. As someone not used to noise while I sleep, I had to close the windows and then suffer in the heat.

Great apartment and location - not so cool though

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed the apartment and the location. It was close to lots of different parts of Paris - 5-10 min walk to the Louvre, 25 min walk to Champs de Elysses (sp?), and short walk to grocery and restaurants. We did get tired of the stairs but it was great exercise. Our biggest issue was that the apartment did not have air conditioning or any fans. When we visited France it was quite warm and even with all the windows open it didn't cool down in the apartment. We seriously considered going to the hotel next door to get rooms at one point. The beds were fine and the kitchen stocked - our biggest issue was the heat and noise from the streets (because of open windows). Overall the apartment was nice (as long as don't mind stairs) and the location was excellent but visit when it is cooler.

Owner's Response: Hi Leslie, Thx for the review. Sorry for the heat. A fan and a portable AC was available but we didn't installed it as we didn't expect the heat so early. Sorry than you didn't ask assistance... regards.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Could have been helpful to have someone give us more info on how things worked. There were two of us my granddaughter and me and her sleeper bed was not ready but after I alerted owner it was resolved. We had to get info on how to get the key. After climbing the 4 flights to get to apt then to climb back to access key, my new knee replacement got a workout. The location was great and the Little hotel next door was great arranging a taxie for us to Orly and holding our luggage until time for airport.

Great apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was great! Perfect location, plenty of room for a family of four, and we had everything we needed. The only downside is that there is no elevator and the apartment is located on the fourth floor; however, the owner was upfront about this when we booked the property, so we can't complain. Highly recommended!

Perfect with built in cardio!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment in an amazing location. Plenty of space, lots of amenities and quaint feel. Very clean and comfortable. The stair climb can be a bit strenuous but didn't detract from all the other positive aspects. We appreciated the ease of check in/out and having Leslie touch base with us throughout our stay. Definitely a repeat is in order!!
