Spacious, Refined Apartment in Saint Germain
Located in the Place Saint Michel, this elegant apartment provides a calm, quiet respite in the midst of one of the most exciting districts in Paris. The windows overlook Notre Dame, the Seine, and the Saint-Michel fountain, and are double-glazed …
We were let down with only 24 hours notice from our departure to Paris when glamaparis.com came to our rescue and found us this apartment in Place St Michel.
Not only is the apartment ideally situated for tourist attractions within walking distance, but it has a Metro station across the road with connections to RER trains as well. Norte Dame, the Pompidou centre and Musee d'Orsay are all within easy walking distance.
The apartment balconies provide a window onto Parisien life. the area is perfect for both daytime and evening strolls through beautiful streets full of shops and restaurants which we found unrivalled by other quarters in Paris. Having 15 and 9 year olds, the area catered to all our needs.
Glamaparis not only gave us a warm welcome upon our arrival, providing us with a detailed neighbourhood guide, but responded promptly to email queries sent during our stay, which was very reassuring.
The apartment itself was perfect for us; glamaparis ensured it was clean, well maintained and fully equipped, plus that the second bedroom was made up into a twin room to cater for our family's needs.
Although not the cheapest of apartments, we were not disappointed in any way and having travelled within and beyond Europe would say this is the nicest apartment we have stayed in.
We would definitely book with both glamaparis and this apartment apartment again for our next visit to Paris.
We were truly lucky to be able to stay in this wonderful apartment! I took many days and umpteen hours looking for "the perfect apartment" in the "center" of the true Parisian experience, and this property surpassed my expectations.
Since I was traveling with my 85 year old mother, young adult daughter and her friend, my search requirements were very stringent - we had to be within steps to many local cafes and shops, the metro station and taxi stops, as my mother doesn't get around well. For the sake of the girls, we also had to be within walking distance of everything, with rental bikes outside of the door. We needed an "elderly person" friendly apartment which was secure, safe, and with an elevator. This is exactly what we found at this gem of an apartment.
The apartment has 2 balconies overlooking Fontaine St. Michel, the River Seine and Cathedral Notre Dame. We loved sitting in front of the balconies watching and listening to the street performers and multitudes of onlookers in the evening. It was a perfect people-watching perch. While very noisy when the balconies were opened up, it was surprisingly quiet during the night when closed the balconies to sleep.The apartment was original, charming, and while old, it is very nicely kept up. All facilities worked very well, and the property management staff was very friendly and helpful. It does not have air conditioning, which may be a problem during a heat wave. But during our stay when it was 70-80 degrees during the day, it was very pleasant.
The only down side (but small concern compared to all of the positives) is that the apartment is not very well stocked. We were provided one roll of toilet paper and one half roll of paper towels, so had to go out as soon as we got there to buy more. By the way, there are grocery stores wtihin 2 blocks of the apartment. There were no washcloths or kleenex, and only one very thin, small kitchen towel. There were no replacement trash bags, no extra bed blankets or pillows. Next time I go to this property, I will be sure to request these items in advance, which should take care of the problem. You can also ask for water and snacks to be waiting for you when you arrive, which is a great help.
Overall, I would give this property a 9+ (not a 10+ only because of the scarce supplies). If you decide to stay in this property, you will have found the perfect launching point for a most memorable Parisian experience!
We stayed a few days in this apartment and I will immediately jump to pros and cons:
- great location - you are just a few steps or metro stations from almost everything you want !
- the area is packed by restaurants and bistros
- the flat is big, well decorated and.charming
- we were met and transfered there and back by a polite service using a comfortable car
-at arrival the representative walked us through the flat and addressed all questions
- the location is noisy ! There is always a crowd at the Place StMichel , so you hear all the noise at dinner and till late. At night it is quite but in early morning you will be woken up by cleaning sounds at the inner yard - not long though ...
- there is an oversized bathroom but the toilet is separate from it - would be more handy to have two toilets as the place is targeted for bigger groups
- really not equipped well by kitchen ware - no towels, no juice maker, no cattle, not enough equipment and things ...
- we were very stressed by the representative beeing late at check out by almost 1 hour (!) with 1 k Euro deposit - not what you want when you are heading to the airport !!!!
So, overall nice apartment but the welcoming service could be better and the equipment has to be revised !
We really loved this apartment and it's location was ideal for exploring Paris on foot. The first thing we thought after walking in was that it felt exactly as the pictures. The entire apartment was very clean and comfortable for our family of four. The tall ceilings and nice cornice mouldings gave it a very nice feel and it was very light in both the living area and the bedrooms. We took the larger bedroom with the closet and larger bed (although this can be 2 twins if you like) and the girls took the smaller room with one bed. They put some of their things in the closet in our room and in the hall. Even though the rooms are around the corner from the living area, there was a nice breeze when the windows were opened, so much we had to prop open the hallway door to keep it from closing! In 70 - 80 (F) weather, it was very comfortable, but perhaps if there was a heatwave it would be a bit warm but I think the breeze would help a lot. The kitchen had many plates, glasses of all types and silverware. We entertained our french family a couple of times and it was nicely equiped and sized for our group of 10 or so people. I did request on check out that they provide more cooking utensils and Paul thought this was a good idea. There is so much take away food nearby that cooking is not really necessary but the Richard Lenoir market was tempting us to make the effort. Outside the apartment is very entertaining, you can see and hear the street performers in the plaza across the street and we enjoyed this view on Paris.
The service provided by Glamaparis was very good, everyone we dealt with was most kind and the process very easy. We would highly recommend this property and would certainly rent it again when we return.
We spent a wonderful week in this apartment at the end of May 2011. The apartment is exactly as shown, clean, well furnished and very quiet despite being centrally located. Paul greeted us on time and kindly answered all our questions. The neighborhood is safe and nice. Located at the corner of Place St-Michel and La Seine. Metro station at the door. You can even see Notre-Dame from the living room. Quite nice! Many fine restaurants a short walking distance from the apartment. For good and authentic Italian food, try Il Suppli (2 rue de Condé). Monica will greet you as a friend. Excellent quality/prices ratio.
We would recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to spend good time in Paris and have every commodity on hand. A place to return. We will certainly be back and look forward to deal with Paul and Glam a Paris.
Our only regret is that we could not stay longer!
Our family of four (two adults, two teenagers) spent the first week of April in this lovely apartment right on Place St. Michel. The location was ideal - overlooking the river and even with the trees just beginning to bloom we had a nice view of Notre Dame. There is a metro stop and an RER station right across the street so not only are you within walking distance to much of Paris, but also steps away from hopping on subway and train. The apartment was exactly as advertised and spotless Very attractive and light with great floor to ceiling doors opening to small stoops (large enough to put a chair on for some fresh air) overlooking the square. Despite the busy area, when the doors are closed, the apartment is quiet and bedrooms face interior with no noise at all. Our only wish was for a few English-language TV channels, but frankly who wants to watch TV when in Paris! Wireless connection was great. Beds comfortable. Bath very nice and large. Rental agent answered numerous questions promptly and efficiently and was very easy to deal with. One bit of advice - if renting an apartment, then take a late night flight from the US so that you arrive late in the morning or early afternoon. We arrived at 6 AM and had to hang out at airport for several hours until it was light (!). Fortunately, agent was able to arrange an early check in for a very jet lagged family with lots of luggage. Also, there is a Monoprix grocery store within several blocks of the apartment on St. Michel Blvd. A wonderful trip and a highly recommended property.
We were delighted with our apartment rental at 2 Place St. Michel through GLAM-Paris on VRBO.com. The apartment was just as promised, and clean and in full working order. We received excellent support and service, in English, and all of our questions were promptly answered via email in advance of our arrival. The contract was clear and we were met at the apartment at the beginning and end of our stay. The apartment was a lovely 2BR flat with an open floor plan for its living room, dining room and kitchen where we spent considerable time unwinding in the late evenings after walking/metro-ing Paris, and eating breakfast. The bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of closet space and comfortable bedding. We had plenty of hot water for showers and the bathroom was modern and clean. It appeared that the entire flat had been renovated recently and it was located in a secure building on the second floor with elevator access. The owners provided great customer care and service, and we would unhesitatingly recommend this property to others. Our stay could not have been more comfortable and the flat was superb.
My wife and I used Glam@Paris to book a fantastic apartment in Place Saint-Michelle. The apartment was as described and Mr. Barraud greated us upon our arrival and made sure we were comfortable and at ease.
I would recommend Glam to any one looking to rent an apartment in Paris.
