Small studio (9 m2) fully equipped (1st floor) with a sofa, a loft (sleeps 2 people), kitchenette and bathroom with toilet and wifi internet access, located in a dead end near the College de France. Shops, markets, restaurants and cafes are at the foot of this little 5-storey building. Close to Mouffetard, Notre Dame and Ile St Louis. Right in the university area. Metro Maubert-Mutualité.
RER Cluny-La Sorbonne or Saint-Michel.
This apartment is delightfully located beside the Sorbonne, in a quiet peaceful street. It is very secure and we were pleased to be met by the owner's representative at the arranged time. The apartment is very small, but beautifully organised with everything one needs for a stay at hand. It is also superbly clean and all fittings are in good condition.
In the owner's picture, you can see the edge of the mezzanine style bed that is above the floor space of the apartment - this is fine but could be an issue for someone who would be uncomfortable with the ceiling being close enough to bed itself. I am over 6' tall and could not sit up in bed!
There are many local amenities, apart from the normal Paris sights. There is a local cafe, Cafe Reglait, that is totally unpretentious and is clearly used by local people. We enjoyed breakfast there a couple of times.
On our departure, the owner attended promptly and immediately returned our security deposit. This is a property that is exactly as described and well-managed. I would recommend this owner and this apartment.
When we arrived to see where we'd be staying in Paris for 6 days, we were delighted to see the location of our rental. This studio is right in the heart of the latin quarter, walking distance from the some of the best restaurants in Paris (especially the one right on the corner, Le Coupe Chou), walking distance to Luxembourg Gardens, Notre Dame, and close to a metro stop that took us everywhere we wanted to go.
Be aware that the apartment is small, but this didn't bother us at all. We had two large backpacks and two smaller carry-on bags and after we unpacked, we stored the bags under the couch and in the under-the-stairs storage. Everything fit great! The kitchen was functional and we cooked our breakfasts and some dinners there and sat at the little table with the windows open.
We had one problem which was that the drain of the shower got stuck, but we sent a message to Christophe and he came to fix it that same day and it worked wonderfully after that. He was very quick to respond with any questions we had and apologized for the inconvenience.
Again, I can't stress enough how perfect this place was for us! Location is so important when you want to see as much of Paris as possible. We chose this place over an apartment that was further north in the Right Bank and I am so glad we did.
The location for this apartment is good. Metro is about 10 min walk. Notre dame is about a 10 min walk. It was safe. The apartment itself is tiny. Do not take much belongings if you plan on staying here as there is no where to put them. I think this is more of a one person place. The bathroom doesnt really have a closing door it is just a sliding door so there isnt much privacy. Its a bit of a hassle going up to the bed as the stairs are steep. Overall the apartment was ok and did list what it had. It was too small for my liking but you get what you pay for.
The location and facility is good despise the small room space. The price is very reasonable. Very close to Pantheon. You just need to plan on the luggage storage in case your arrival time is early than 14.00 or your departure time is late than noon.
Upon arriving in Paris, we were excited to see where we'd be "living" for the next 6 days. Just as it had been explained in the listing, this little apartment had everything we needed. It is in a GREAT location! Excellent bars and restaurants within steps. Staying in the Latin Quarter is our favorite spot, so it felt really nice to be able to call it home for a little while. The pictures that are shown in the listing are very accurate as to what it looks like in real life. Yes, it is small, but it SO cozy! My husband and I found ourselves to be very comfortable. The bed is especially comfortable, and just what you need after a long day of taking in the sights, and eating delicious French cuisine.
The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. The owner of this property was a true pleasure to work with- he would always respond to our emails very promptly and made sure we were well taken care of.
I would most definitely recommend this property to friends and family!
This studio is right in the heart of Paris yet on a quiet street. It's easy walking distance to numerous sites, restaurants, cafes and shops in the Latin Quarter, Mouffetard neighborhood, and St. Germain des Pres, and it's near several metro & RER stops (on different lines). Christophe is a very gracious host. The studio is a great choice for the budget aware, too.
