location is great. one of the best in saint-germa area, right in the middle of everything.
apartment is big enough for a family with two kids. It needs little bit renovation. Very big closets, coffee machine, seat covers in the living room were dirty. so was some of the kitchenwares. Towels "must be changed", they are dirty and really old, we were lucky we had ours with us. Once they clean the house better and change towels and bed sheets, this place will be definitly perfect.
The location of this apartment cannot be beat. It is not only easy to access the main sites by foot (or metro), but it is also in a really cool neighbourhood. One SIGNIFICANT drawback was the broken shower tap. Upon arrival, we we're told that the cold water was not working in the shower. We were not told, however, that showering would be nearly impossible, and very uncomfortable, due to the scalding temperature. For the price of this apartment, this is a fairly major flaw. Other than that, the facilities are adequate and 4 people can comfortably enjoy themselves.
This apartment is the ideal location on a good street easy walking distance from many tourist attractions. The apartment is in a secure location on the 3rd floor, with one bedroom street side and one facing the center courtyard. Alexandre was a good communicator, always promptly responding, carefully answering any questions we had. He had a prepared sheet in the apartment explaining details and with restaurant recommendations. There was a power converter and plug converters provided - a nice touch. The television had many channels and was easy to use. The apartment was well kept, clean and in good condition. The apartment has good appliances and all worked well. The kitchen is stocked with the basics and could use a few more items: We found it challenging to cut a loaf of bread wider than a baguette as there was no long serrated bread knife. Cooking dinner for 4 required careful planning and required the use of nearly every pan in the kitchen. The apartment itself appears to be mostly furnished from Ikea or Ikea "like" quality items. You can see most of this in the pictures and the pictures accurately depict the apartment. One item not working correctly, which Alexandre informed us of upon arrival was the bath/shower temperature control (which he planned to repair). It wasn't an issue for us. Unlike many apartments in Paris, this one had plenty of hot water and we never ran out. This apartment worked well for a family of 4 and I would stay here again.
Well equipped, comfortable apartment in the centre of Paris. Fantastic access to the sights, either on foot or by public transport. Perfect for a family of four.
This apartment was ideal for our family of four (two 15-year old boys); fully equipped, functional and very well located. The apartment contained all the necessary amenities to make our stay comfortable; a fully equipped, spacious kitchen (including dishwasher), washing machine, two separate bedrooms, spacious living area and bathroom that included a stand-up shower (over bath). Practical additions included a free WiFi connection (fast), TV and phone service that included free calls to the Australia.
The apartment is ideal located and easy walking distance to many of the major sights. Bakery, supermarket and greengrocer are all located conveniently close by, plus a number of local restaurants and cafes. Close by you have metro or regional train stations. The regional stop is particularly convenient when travelling to and from the airport or a trip out to Versaille.
We found Alexandre to be very helpful. He promptly replied to all our questions, provided excellent directions from the airport and some helpful tips. In addition, reservation and payment (PayPal) was easy.
We very much enjoyed our stay here and if given the opportunity, we would stay here again.
Great location with lots of restaurants close by. Alexandre was great, made sure we bought our bread from the best bakery around the corner and had a list of restaurants he recommended. WiFi connection was great. Plenty of space for an appartment in Paris and had a dishwasher and washer/dryer.
On the down side, it could do with some bowls. I know, French eat croissant for breakfast - but what about French onion soup? Bathroom wall needs some attention as the paint is peeling but it was clean, roomy and even had a bath!
I would recommend this property and would stay again if available on our next trip to Paris.
We had a wonderful stay in Paris with our four children, thanks in large part to having a family-friendly apartment within walking distance of almost everything we wanted to see (Notre Dame is about a 5 minute walk). I was pleasantly surprised to find hot chocolate in the cupboard, and the street music festival going on that night provided free entertainment for us. Even with the noise of the festival, we were able to sleep once we shut the windows. The nearby grocery store (about a block away) made it possible for us to try our own hand at french cooking during our visit in the apartment's well-equipped kitchen. Excellent bakeries and restaurants just a stone's throw away, and easy to get to/from Gare du Nord (two stops away) made it all the sweeter. The absolute best: evening strolls on the Ile de la Cite when it was still light at 10 pm. Thank you, Alexandre, for your flexibility, your thoughtfulness, and for making Paris feel welcoming and friendly to large families. We highly recommend your apartment.
Everything about our stay was fantastic. Alexandre met us promptly upon our arrival and gave us all of the pertinent information about the apartment, as well as dining recommendations and what places to avoid. The apartment was great. Very safe and comfortable (be aware however that there is no lift). The location is right between the Latin quarter and St Germaine. Located within 2 blocks of the apartment are several bakeries, butchers, and produce places. This came in handy as we decided to make a meal for ourselves during our 3 night stay. I highly recommend this as it gives you the true feel of living in the center of Paris. Washer/dryer on site was a big plus. Check out was easy and Alexandre was very accommodating in allowing us to check out after a morning seeing a few last sites. Overall our stay was fantastic and we hope to return in the future!
Stayed in this apt for 4 nights with 2 adults and 4 kids (ages 10 to 15). Great location with many cafes and a supermarket a very short walk away (< 5 min). Access to the city was great as well, with the St Michel metro station a short walk away. Notre Dame and the Louvre were also close by. We even ended up walking down to the Arc de Triomphe. Accomodations were certainly acceptable for us - we spent most of the time wandering the city and all the wonderful places to visit/see.
As other reviewers have stated, adults should bring their earplugs. You can fall asleep without them, but if you wake up, it can be difficult to get back to sleep if you don't have them (with the windows open).
Lastly, Alexandre was prompt and helpful with all questions we had. He even assisted by calling a cab for us on our departure.
If I make it back to Paris, I would gladly rent this apartment again.
Place is perfect exactly what you need in the heart of paris! Great touch with the fully equipped kitchen and washer dryer! For the price especially it doesn't get any better! U walk outside and your at saint germain and quartie Latin. Very comfy beds and modern furniture!
Great place, great location, great host. Everything went smoothly from start to finish, and Alexandre was very responsive and helpful. As others have stated, there are quite a few stairs, and the noise outside from the street can get a little loud on weekend nights. But the apartment is in an ideal location and has all the necessary amenities. Our family had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend.
We spent three nights In this apartment as part of our european vacation & the apartment had everything we needed. The location of this place is awesome & you could not ask for better. You are right in the hub of things and a great location for older kids. Ours are between 12 & 16. We had a car so we had to find parking which was around the corner.There are a choice of restaurants at reasonable prices & activity everywhere. The apartment is well equipped & tidy with plenty of character & fairly modern inside. We did not spend a lot of time there as we were out seeing all we could in the time we were there. I would certainly recommend this place.
My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights. This apartment is very clean and comfortable. It is close to the Seine, 2 metro lines and walking distance to many sights. The kitchen has all the tools you would need to cook a great meal (although with so many great restaurants in the neighborhood we only kept snacks and wine in the fridge and did not cook once) and there is a good grocery store around the corner. The bathroom was very clean and the shower pressure was great. Alexandre was very helpful, answered all our questions and was easy to work with. I really want to come back to Paris soon with my sister and I would stay in this apartment. My husband and I would both recommend this apartment. Thanks Alexandre!! :)
What a great find! The Location is five stars, right in the student district on the left bank with restaurants cafes and shops. Three boulongerie's to choose from and a handy Carrefour supermarket nearby.
We walked to Notre Dame, The Louvre, Musee D'Orsay and with metro and RER stops close by at St Michel and Odeon you can get to all the sights easily.
The apartment is on the 3rd floor, and with high ceilings on each floor this is a hike with your luggage on arrival and departure. Very secure with access code from the street. We arrived by car which is not recommended. Better to use train or taxi the last bit.
The heating was wonderful (even the towel rail) washing machine and dishwasher nice to have. We would recommend this apartment to anyone. The owner was so helpful. Alex waited for us to arrive,
even bought a new single sofa-bed immediately when one of them didn't work properly. Alex allowed us to stay till 5pm on the day we left which made our last day in Paris so easy.
We had 6 of us (all family) with children aged 22, 20, 18 and 15 and despite the one bathroom we just loved the apartment and especially it's location.
The apartment proved exactly as described in the advertisement.
That was nice to discover and brought us only pleasant surprises !
Proprietor Alexandre was very helpful and wasn't surprised by our three young children
who raced up the stairs to explore the apartment.
Meanwile he helped unloading the car and showing a garage.
The little hideaway was provided with all the necessary items and located in the very
hart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a perfect start for a nice visit to Paris.
Thank you Alexander, well' be back !!
Our family of 4 stayed for a total of 6 nights over the Christmas and New Years holiday period. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciated the spacious apartment located in the heart of the Latin Quarter. The apartment is ideally located on a nice walking street with many amenities right outside the complex' front door.
Thank you Alexandre for having a two bedroom apartment with everything we needed to make our trip to Paris more homey. Wifi that works! A location that's easy to find and on one of the most charming streets in Paris. Starbucks across the street for those who care. And steps to the Metro. A washing machine was a bonus. Alexandre was easy to be in contact with and very accomodating from first contact to meeting us at the front door.
We stayed in the Apt. on Rue Saint Andres de Arts for one week. It was a wonderful street to stay on. Just out the front door there were many stores, restaurants, cafes and anything you could possibly want. A farmers market right down the street. The oldest cobble stone street was right around the corner on a very narrow alleyway with many wonderful places to eat. We loved the little restaurant Cepe & Figue and ate lunch and dinner there.
We were three women staying in the apartment and found it very comfortable.
We bought fresh veggies and soups to eat in the apartment quite a few times.
The apartment is a walk up to the third floor, but it kept us in shape. We felt very safe in the apartment and everything was very neat and clean.
I would definitely stay there again.
The only recommendations I have it to ask Alexandre exactly how to use the washing machine. (it took us a while to figure it out)
And please bring ear plugs. I slept in the back bedroom and it was very quiet. However my friends who slept in the front bedroom said the noise from the street kept them awake on the weekends.
The photos and description was very accurate.
I hope to return next year!!
