Sorbonne Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)


There is nothing better than being in the middle of Paris, where everything Parisian is within your easy reach. Your lovely apartment is situated on the Left Bank, just opposite Notre Dame Cathedral. This 17th century building is located in the oldest section of Paris, full of history at every turn.

Your apartment is conveniently located just steps away from Station St. Michel, which serves the Metro line 4 as well as the larger RER lines B and C.

Just imagine coming back to your quiet hideaway after a long day of sightseeing; and having time to put your feet up. After a bit of relaxation and a couple of glasses of French Wine, it is just an easy stroll to dinner. Your centrally located home-away-from-home makes this all possible.

At your Paris apartment, you are within walking distance of Notre Dame Cathedral, Hotel de Ville, Le Marais, Place de Vosges, Pompidou Center, Ile St. Louis, St. Michel, Jardin de Plants, Le Sorbonne, St. Germain, Sainte Chapelle, Latin Quarter, etc.

Your 1st floor apartment (2nd floor, by American system) with large windows was historically considered as the ''noble'' floor. When you open your front door, the entry hallway invites you to the living/dining room. The apartment's high ceilings still contain the original wooden beams, which is part of the charm/history of the building and the area. It also provides the perfect setting for the large woven tapestry on the wall behind the sofa. The convertible sofa was especially selected for the excellent firm mattress providing a comfortable sleep.

The dining area is composed of table that will seat 6 comfortably. The large built in bookshelves hold a good selection of reading material, including maps and tourist information.

The apartment has two large windows that open to enjoy the pedestrian only street below (rue de la Huchette) that is filled with interesting shops, boutiques, and restaurants.

Your kitchen is equipped with everything necessary for a simple breakfast, afternoon tea, cocktails & hors d'oeuvres (or amuse-bouche), or something more substantial. This includes refrigerator, cook top, microwave, toaster oven, electric coffee maker, dishwasher, and a small European style washing machine.

The bedroom has a queen size bed and plenty of storage. There is also a small folded IKEA cot that is ideal for a small child. The bathroom has a bathtub/shower, hair dryer, etc. All bed and bath linens are included.

Paris usually has fairly mild weather but just in case of a summer heat wave there is an air conditioner for the bedroom and also a portable fan in the living room, all for your comfort.

What you will get from us: We will work with you to provide answers to all your questions before you leave home, and will provide detailed instructions for getting to the apartment, regardless of your mode of transportation. We will offer to book a car service for you, which will streamline the arrival/departure process. We will be there to greet you, help with your luggage, and provide an informative tour of the apartment, explaining how everything works. We will give you a brief introduction to your new neighborhood so you can find all the important things, and can also give recommendations for our favorite bistros, brasseries, cafes, and restaurants, and help make reservations as appropriate. We are only a telephone call away, should you need help, while in our care.

Our mission is to give you the best experience possible, which will make your dream trip even more memorable.

Perfect cozy spot for Paris trip

  • 5 of 5

This cozy and lovely apartment was a great find! It was an excellent central location with the house literally facing Notre Dame. The photos don't do this apartment justice. It's really nicely and comfortably decorated, with thick oriental rugs and tapestries. In terms of creature comforts, it has everything you might need -- including air conditioning, a dishwasher, and washing machine. The shower is hot and water pressure is good. The large windows face the bustling street behind the house so they make you feel that you are in the midst of all the action, yet at night when you want to sleep they magically block out all noise. We were met by David when we arrived and he left us a wonderful assortment of goods to start our trip, much appreciated! We loved it and hope to be back soon!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My 2 kids and I had a wonderful stay in David's apartment in Paris. It was comfortable and very well appointed, especially the washer/dryer! We stayed for 5 nights and loved being on Rue de la Huchette! Those who are not heavy sleepers should not sleep in the living room, but the bedroom is very quiet! I loved being in the heart of the Latin Quarter, but it is not for everyone. It is a party location and the soccer fans were having a good time in the bars below.

I would certainly stay in this apartment again! It was in the perfect location and with the air conditioning, was quiet enough for us!

David met us at the apartment and was very helpful. We ate on Rue de la Huchette most evenings and loved that the fancy ice cream shop was just below.

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Great location, satisfactory accommodation

  • 3 of 5

The apartment enjoys a stellar location for sightseeing and getting out to the French Open. The apartment itself is a little tired(stains on the pillows, fingerprints on the cupboard doors, linens for the sofa bed a little dingy, non working phone) but we understand it will be refreshed in August. The kitchen was adequate and our host left coffee, biscuits and a bottle of wine, very hospitable. The main room has high ceilings, wooden beams and overlooks a busy street of bars so the noise was not insignificant but that aspect had been noted in earlier reviews. We were tired enough that it did not bother us. There are ample restaurants in the vicinity as well as shops to buy provisions for eating at home. It is a good option for 2-4 people who know each other well as there is only one bath.

Fantastic location in the center of Paris

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed a week's stay in this apartment. Everything was as advertised and the location could not have been better. David's help and assistance in arranging for the apartment and providing some basic provisions was greatly appreciated. Since we were in the heart of the Latin Quarter, there was lots of night activity on the street. You could hear the street noise in the apartment but we closed the bedroom door and all was quiet. We would recommend the apartment to friends interested in staying in this central location in Paris.

Fantastic apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment in an excellent location to walk to many tourist attractions and close to metro, and easy walk to lots of bars and restaurants. The apartment is well appointed with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The lounge/dining area was very comfortable for relaxing at the end of the day. David was very helpful and responded promptly to emails. We would definitely book this apartment again.
