About the 6th Arrondissement:

If you weren’t yet convinced to book from the apartment itself, just consider the property’s location right in the center of Saint Germain des Pres. This famous Left Bank neighbourhood, known as the “Rive Gauche” to Parisians, has been a long time-favourite of intellectuals and artists. At your doorstep you’ll find a huge array of restaurants, bistrots, cafés, ice cream parlours, florists, artisan chocolatiers, art galleries and much more! Be sure to make a stop at Le Bon Marché during your stay in the 6th Arrondissement.

Within walking distance of the apartment are the must-see Luxembourg Gardens, perfect for a morning jog, afternoon picnic or sunset stroll. The River Seine is also within walking distance so you can go to the Louvre or Notre Dame easily on foot. The Latin Quarter is a stone’s throw away with sights such as La Sorbonne and the newly refurbished Pantheon. Walk over to Le Marais district for shopping and dining on Sunday while the rest of the city is at rest.

With its close proximity to the metro station Odeon (Lines 4 and 10), accessing other areas of the capital is extremely easy. Just hop on the Metro to reach the Eiffel Towel, Champs Elysées and the Arc de Triomphe, Montmartre and the Sacre Coeur and more!

The Good, the Bad, the Ugly

  • 2 of 5

The Good—-This is a wonderful location. It is in one of the interesting areas of Paris, on a bus route, minutes from the metro, great eating establishments all around, easy walking at any time of the day or night, has lots of room and is very quiet—-really glad we stayed in the area.

The Bad—We communicated with the management firm often and clearly via email, just for having a record. We were never given the address but told to meet the agent at a certain time and place, on a street corner. It was cold and wet and no one showed up until we called twice. After 45 minutes, we met the agent in front of the apartment but were immediately told that cleaning had not been done yet—-near 4 PM now. The cleaning was finally done about 5 PM (about 15 minutes and way too quickly). We had to wash every dish, pot and utensil that we wanted to use as there was residual material on a good share of the equipment, including burnt on material we had to soak over night in one of the commonly used pans. The agent was kind and courteous to us but had no believable explanation for the “communication and meeting” problem or the delay in cleaning the apartment.

The Ugly—The bath had some black mold on the ceiling and walls above the shower and the paint was peeling—looked like it had been that way for awhile; the bathroom was separated into two parts—off the bedroom was the shower and sink but the toilet was in a small room down the hall near the kitchen—-very strange; the lighting was very poor and we wore our head lamps often to read or work—-it did not help that there were three lights out in the apartment.

In summary, we would stay in the area again but we would not use this apartment again and we would have to think very hard about using this rental agent again.

Owner's Response: Dear Ken, thank you very much for taking the time to write such a thorough, sincere and constructive review. We are sorry to that you didn’t feel our rental offered a good value for the price you paid. We have been in business for over 7 years and have hosted thousands of satisfied guests. Our team uses the very rare incidents such as this one to re-oil our operations so that the dissatisfaction never happens again. We would like to apologize for the miscommunication regarding your arrival time. Our cleaner's schedule got mixed up and she ended up cleaning another flat before tending to yours. We are truly sorry that it was not ready for you when you arrived and we understand how tired you must have been. As indicated in your confirmation email, the address provided was the meeting point for the key pickup. This past year, we had a busier than normal tourist season with lots of guests coming and going. Therefore, we've realized this has put some additional wear on the apartment. As a result, we are taking a short break with the flat to address the maintenance and upkeep issues. We would love to be able to discuss with you more if you could reach out to us.

Great location and convenient amenities, but it could be more clean.

  • 4 of 5

Right off the Seine, about 3 blocks from a Metro stop, and only a few stairs off the street, this apartment is convenient. The only criticism is that they need to clean it more thoroughly; the shower was moldy and the kitchen cabinets were pretty dirty. You can skip the nightclub downstairs, but the bar on the corner is a fun place to meet Paris natives and rest after a day on your feet.

Owner's Response: Dear Matthew, thank you very much for your feedback. We are pleased to know you enjoyed the great location of the apartment, close to the Seine, the Metro and many great cafés and galleries. We would like to apologize that the level of cleanliness of the flat upon your arrival did not meet our own high standards. We have given the flat a thorough cleaning and we believe you would be pleased with the end results. If for some reason we seemed unapproachable during your stay we apologize as with a quick phone call we could have addressed this problem to ensure a more enjoyable stay for you. Don't hesitate to reach out to us the next time you plan a visit to Paris. It would be a pleasure to host you again and you will benefit from a returning guest discount. Au revoir!

Super Saint Germain Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great little holiday in Paris with my husband and teenage daughter. We chose Paul's flat based on its location (I am a huge fan of the 6th Arrondisement) and we were more than pleased. The Seine River is literally down the street from the apartment so we were only steps away from the classic 'bouquinistes' selling their books and other treasures along the river. The neighborhood is quite calm and incredibly safe. Rue de Buci et Rue Bonaparte are just a few minutes walk away and there you'll find tons of boutiques and restaurants. The apartment itself was just what we needed for the three of us. My daughter slept on the pull-out sofa in the living room and said it was very comfortable. The ceilings are very high and the windows are really tall so the apartment has a spacious feel. All the facilities are nice and the flat was well maintained and clean. Paul was very helpful during the booking process and provided us with tips on getting from the airport to the apartment. We were greeted by his assistant Alice who was super friendly and explained the ins and outs of the apartment. I would definitely recommend this flat for any family looking for a getaway in Paris!

Perfect Base in Paris

  • 5 of 5

The highlights are: 1. Clean apartment located in a great area. Pont Neuf and the Seine are a 1 minute walk away, and Saint Michel less than 5. The bedroom faces an inside courtyard so it is very quiet. 2. Paul and team communicate frequently and effectively. 3. If you are two separate travelers, one can use the bedroom and another the couch living room (we were just one couple). 4. A great, affordable way to stay in the best district of Paris without burning a hole in your wallet (and more cash to spend in the restaurants!) 5. There’s a brand new pull out sofa bed. The only downside is unlike a hotel, there is no place to keep luggage when you checkout and have a later flight. We found a great little company which stores luggage on the Left Bank anyway.

Steps from the Seine River

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented Paul's flat with two friends for a long weekend and we had a great time. The property location was top, you can see the Seine River from the front door of the building and we were so close to the 'bouquinistes' selling their treasures by the river! The neighborhood is pretty calm and we felt perfectly safe there at night. The flat itself was very spacious with tall ceilings and huge windows. The bed in the bedroom was comfy and the sofa bed was not bad for a sofa bed! Loved having our own kitchen to cook some of our meals at home which helped us save some money. Thanks Paul for a great time!

Highly Recommend this Rental and Location!

  • 5 of 5

It was was wonderful to stay at this apartment. The manager was easy to work with and very helpful in making our stay comfortable. This apartment was clean, beautiful and in a great location - so Parisian. Nice quality linens and towels. Easy walking distance to most of the major sights. The Seine River is just down the street (you can see it from the apartment door!), and the Louvre Museum across the bridge. We highly recommend this rental for any Paris visitor and can’t wait to stay again one day if we have the opportunity to revisit Paris!
