Perfect for our two days in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately we only made time for two days in Paris. This apartment was perfectly located. Easy access to Metro (St Paul) and to all the popular sites in the city. Our family of four (12&15) walked EVERYWHERE except for taking the fabulous Metro back to apartment one late night (midnight) from the Concorde Place (ferris wheel). While we spent very little time in the apartment, it had all the amenities one would need for any period of time. We were met by the owners son who was very sweet, polite and informative. The apartment was excellent and well decorated. Overlooked the lovely narrow Rue St Louis. (Main Street). Our boys especially loved the loft. It was steps away from delicious breakfast spots, creperie, and Berthillon ice cream. And just ten minutes walking takes you over the various bridges to Notre Dame, Marais and Latin Quarter. We even walked to the Gare Du Lyon both ways with our luggage. Really could not have had a better location in a perfectly parisian apartment. Highly recommend!

Wonderful experience as always

  • 4 of 5

This is the 3rd time we have stayed in the apt and/or the adjacent apartment on the same floor. We love the atmosphere & wonderful resturants on I'l Saint t Louis. It is my favorite experience to get up in the morning & walk to one of the bakeries on the island for fresh Baguetes.

There is a meat market, grocery, wine shop & cheese shop, so you don't even have to go out to find all the ingredients for a nice dinner, after a day of sigh seeing. It is ideal for a couple

It is close to shopping and the major museums.

I recommend the apt with out reservation.

Bon, bien contente.

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement - la meilleure adresse- on peut se promener partout, a quelques pas de Notre-Dame. Toutes sortes de services le long de la rue, soit la boucherie, boulangerie, creperie, pharmacie, marche/epicerie et un fleuriste. J'espere y revenir en septembre,2017.

Charming apartment in an excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has a lovely decor and a prime Paris location. All shops, cafes and excellent restaurants only steps away. Ile St Loius is a beautiful neighbourhood, clean, quiet and picturesque. There were a couple of small maintaining issues (loose cabinet under kitchen sink, shower mount broken) but the owner is helpful and conscientious so no doubt these will be repaired soon. We would definitely return to this apartment on our next visit to Paris!

Feel Like A Local

  • 4 of 5

Another great stay at this apartment. Walking distance to a great bakery (#80 down the street, say hi to Raouf!), grocer, butcher across street, Berthillon ice cream everywhere you look. Agent/owner were super responsive to questions we had about the TV, washer/dryer, and even cafe choice. A bit of a walk to the Cite or Pont Marie Metro stops for our young children. But they loved the mezzanine loft beds and climbing the ladder to their area.

I would wish the apartment was a little better stocked in terms of amenities: paper goods like paper towels and toilet paper have been hit or miss, the kitchen equipment could use a refresh via a quick trip to IKEA, and things like soap/shampoo and basic kitchen items could be better. No A/C. But you can't beat the location and the jealous stares of the tourists as you buzz in and out of the foyer of "your apartment in Paris" with your tote bag with baguette sticking out the top!

Oh and try takeout at La Porte Rouge just downstairs, great little option for salads and pasta for a dinner in the apartment without cooking, real friendly chap running it and delicious, generous portions.

Owner's Response: Dear Elisabeth Thank you for your review, we are so glad you had a good time with us. We are working on A/C next summer we should have it implemented...quite a challenge in a 17th century building! As for amenities, idea is to provide a "welcome kit", guest is then suppose to take care for himself. I will clarify this on the web to set up expectations right. Point taken for kitchen equipment...may not be Ikea though..:-) We look forward to welcome you back soon Best regards Daniel
