About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 5 guests)

We are not a rental business. Our not-for-profit was created in 1992 to contribute to innovation which is the force of our economy. Thru history the most ingenious inventions were created in Paris for you to discover and get inspired, one-tourist-at-a-time, we service you. Your donation is tax deductible and we will pay an incentive to purchase made-in-France.

BONJOUR Paris! because it dates from the dawn of Paris.

Few apartments in Paris combine authentic wood beams and stones walls dating back the medieval ages. No expenses were spared to implement floor lights to highlight the beauty of the archeological walls; coupled with Louis XV mirrors and chandeliers. Back in times, it was occupied by the King's Knights.

This apartment is quiet, although located in one of the most visited street of Paris, Rue St Severin, steps from Notre-Dame, in the heart of historical Paris.

There is a King size bed and a double-bed in the bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped. The bathroom has a bathtub with shower. For those who really want to sample a flavor of Paris, BONJOUR PARIS! will be a true authentic Parisian experience!


Contrary to their claim of being in the true center of Paris, most Hotels and apartments are not. Apply the 1-minute-rule, ask are any studio you want less than 1-minute-walk from the river? This studio is less than a minute walk, steps from the river in the historic heart-of-the-heart of Paris. Arguably the most lovely location in Paris, because a walk at midnight over the magic bridges will allow you to soak the wonders of Paris then walk safely home, after dark among all the tourists in the brightly lit streets lined with shops, bakeries, cafe and restaurants and opened late.


You will also save money. First by walking everywhere and avoid taxis and / or public transportation. Secondly, you will save money on food, the apartment is near a fantastic SUPER Gourmet Stores and famous fresh market “Marche Maubert” known to Parisians mainly, which offers the most delicious fresh and cooked food, cheese, bread and finest wines.


1 Minute walk to subway St Michel and 2 min. walk to RER B direct line to CDG Aiport.

Disappointing and no communication

  • 1 of 5

We arrived at 19.00 at the apartment and it was easy to find but the beds and towels were not changed. I wrote an email to the owner but until today did not get any reply nor any kind of apology. The sheets and towels were changed the next day but stained our Paris holidays. Would not book this rather dark apartment again.

Best location!

  • 5 of 5

I can’t imagine a better location! I love the medieval history of the apartment and being in the Latin Quarter. They were very nice and allowed us to drop our luggage off while it was being cleaned, before check-in. It was a great stay! I highly recommend it!!

Best location!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Paris for a little less than a week and the location of this condo was perfect for a short trip as it is conveniently located near several of the attractions we wanted to see. It is a 2 minute walk to Notre-Dame de Paris and in the heart of a vibrant neighborhood with restaurants, souvenir shops, bakeries, pharmacies, groceries and bars. Despite its location, the studio is very quiet and we felt safe and secure within the building with 3 layers of locking doors (we were 3 women traveling together). Claude and his assistant Shen were very responsive and great providing detailed instructions and recommendations before we arrived in Paris. We will only keep great memories of this trip!

Small but in an awesome location.

  • 4 of 5

I loved the location, close to many restaurants, shops and metro stations. We felt safe and really enjoyed this side of Paris. Even though it's in a busy area, the apartment is tucked back in the building far enough to where you can't hear any street noise. The apartment overall was good, but a little cold and they did not have proper comforters for the beds. Just a single blanket for each bed that did not keep us warm enough. Also, you can see through the window into the shower from the other apartments more than one might like.

Owner's Response: Oh! dear...we are so sorry you have not told us you were cold.....Malynn you could have asked for more blanket no reason to be cold in June. We are happy that you have enjoyed your stay with your family of five. And equally enjoyed the fabulous location which is also the safest in Paris for tourists. And you are back home safe. We would be honored to have you again, but next time warmer! God bless

We loved this apartment! It was so close to Paris attractions, restaurants, and grocery shopping, that it saved us many Euros in daily expenses.

The look and feel of the apartment are very special--tres Parisien et ancien! The kitchen was well-equipped , the shower was hot, and the beds were comfortable.

Claude and his assistant, Shen, were SO helpful before our visit. We had no trouble finding or accessing the unit. We felt vey, very safe.

Most highly recommended!
