This was my second solo trip to Paris and both times I have rented M. Giolito's apartment. When I return, I will definitely consider this studio again. While small, it is clean, safe, quiet, and ideally located. In addition, M. Giolito is a considerate host, offering useful local information and being very accommodating for arrivals/departures.

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This little spot had absolutely everything we needed for our four night stay.

Like all the other reviews say, it IS small, but for one or two people, it's perfect. There are power outlets all over the place which was super helpful for keeping everything charged. Also, after drying my hair at home this morning, I'm 100% sure that the hair dryer provided in this apartment is superior to my own. The bed is quite comfortable, though one cannot fully sit up in it because it is close to the ceiling. The kitchen area had everything we needed and more- I've stayed at another VRBO place where you had to buy just about everything down to salt and pepper; this place had those along with sugar, oil, vinegar, and a few other condiments. Very convenient! There was even the tiniest freezer in the little fridge which had a full little ice tray in it. Perfection.

There are tons of amazing restaurants around the area- each meal we had was at a different place and all of the food was so good. There are bus and metro stops very close which allowed us to travel far and wide and see the sights. We felt very safe walking around the Latin Quarter as well.

Christophe was also extremely accommodating. He was very flexible with both our meeting time and our departure. He even carried my 40lbs bag up the stairs. Such a gentleman!

10/10 would definitely stay here again when traveling in Paris.

Un piccolo nido completo di tutto, pulito e centralissimo.

  • 5 of 5

Grazie a Cristophe e alla sua accoglienza ci siamo trovate benissimo. La posizione eccellente. Lo studio è piccolo ma perfettamente attrezzato. Ci ha fatto persino trovare il necessario indispensabile: carta, tovagliette, asciugamani e teli, detersivi, olio, sale, zucchero, pasta, riso, cereali, CAFFE! the, cacao.... tutto quello che in genere a qualunque orario arrivi devi andare a comprare. È anche di più. E casa davvero pulita. Bisogna dormire con una lucetta accesa perché altrimenti se ti svegli al buio e non ricordi di non essere a casa tua.....dai una capocciata al tetto! Ma ê stata la parte divertente del soggiorno madre-figlia che ci ha fatto ridere di più. Consigliato davvero tanto. Cristophe, spero di tornare presto a Paris ed essere di nuovo tua ospite.

Small studio, delightful neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

The place is tiny, but clean, and very suitable for one person. Actually is kind of amazing of what they managed to do with such a small place! It would be good to consider your age and height, because the bad is upstaires (steep staires, because they have also another practical pupose – the closet is under them) and some people might consider the ceiling to be too low. Also, for a tiny person the bathroom might be just fine (although not the sink, it is too small for everyone, but obviously it was the best solution for such a small area).

The location of the studio is the greatest part about it! Very, very close to the city center (max 10 min walk to Notre Dame) and the metro station(s). Also, a supermaket is nearby (5 min). The neighborhood is charming.

The owner is trustworthy and a very nice person.
