Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
My husband and 2 small boys love Paris- there is always a new place to explore, a new site to appreciate and a new restaurant to try. The city is always alive, inviting and full of life. So much history, so many historic sights and always a cafe to sit down it- to savor the moments, the view and the wonderful food.
Keira purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Keira chose Sorbonne
We love this location- it is the heartbeat of Paris. Convenient by RER, Velib (the bike rental throughout Paris sponsored by the city that is accessible to everyone and steps away from our apartment), walking, metro and bus to anyplace of interest. Direct RER to Versailles and the airport. Easy walk to Nortre Dame, Boulevard St. Germain. Steps away from the famous Rue Mouffetard filled with restaurants, open air markets, supermarkets and theaters. The street is quiet, a pedestrian only street, yet steps from the heartbeat and activity of the Latin Quarter. The apartment is modern, comfortable and fully equipped with every comfort. We especially love the big bathroom with separate bathtub and shower. Having a washer and dryer unit is invaluable, especially with young children. The hostess that meets you at the apartment is invaluable- to introduce you to the neighborhood, the city and answer any questions. Very helpful indeed when you need help with lost luggage, a stolen wallet or confusion on how to operate the television- all of which have happened !

Excellent "home base" for a Parisian adventure
This apartment was conveniently located on a quiet street with easy access to dining, groceries and transportation options - in short, a perfect "pied a terre" near Place de la Contrescarpe for my short Parisian visit with two tired/jetlagged kids (aged 13 and 7) . The welcome basket was a nice and unexpected touch.
Great location with not so great air conditioning and downstairs neighbor
Check in with Yoyo and overall communication was great. The apartment is at the great location, close to many local attractions and restaurant. The air conditioning description might be a bit misleading as it's a stand alone unit not sufficient to cool down (we did stay during a big heat wave in France and neighbor downstairs wasn't happy with the AC vibration).
The easiest process renting this lovely little apartment. Mar Yoyo met us and made herself available for anything me might need. The best thing about the apartment was the extremely comfortable beds! In addition to the location steps away from two metro lines, a Carrefour market, two great boulangerie and Rue Mouffetard to name a few. We were able to get around easily and relax at home at the end of the day. The washing machine and dryer were a godsend. Honestly I can’t wait to go back and stay there again.
We'd a great time, wonderful spot. First time in Paris with our 2 children and they absolutely loved it. Superb accomodation and the perfect area. Many thanks to Yo Yo and keira for their help and kindness
Fabulous Paris apartment - would come back again!!
We loved this apartment the moment we were greeted by Yoyo waving cheerily from the window on the second floor. It really felt like home for the week; it was the first time we unpacked our suitcases and really settled in. The kitchen was really well equipped to cook a home cooked meal and the location meant there was a lot of choice for food to prepare, or enjoy in one of the many local restaurants. The location is second to none being in close proximity to two Metro stations and walking distance to many great sites. Both Kiera and Yoyo communicated with us before we arrived, which was very reassuring. We would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to stay in Paris. Thank you Kiera for sharing your Paris home with us.
Dear Carol and Family
Yoyo and I are thrilled that your family enjoyed our home. Your review captured everything that we love best about the apartment, the location and Paris. We look forward to welcoming you again
Superb location, great value, the best apartment in Paris that i have stayed in
I have been to Paris many times over the past 5 years, for work as well as for family vacation. Each time we rent different apartments. This was our favorite- and now i plan on only renting this one! The location is ideal- walking distance to St michel, Notre Dame and Boulevard St Germain. Steps from Place Contrescarpe and Rue Mouffetard. Easy walk to RER which goes direct to airport and Versailles. Adjacent to 2 different metro lines. A large, bright, clean and modern apartment. Easily sleeps 4. Big bathroom with bathtub and separate shower, washer and dryer . Kitchen had all necessary appliances and ....more! The hostess, Ms Yoyo, met us at the apartment and, as all the other reviews say, she was wonderful ! She even arranged our taxi back to the airport! I loved the art work and, when i come back this summer, i will appreciate the air conditioning! This is a real find for Paris and a great value. I will return to this apartment from now on, for each trip. Next time maybe i will bring our dog!! They accept pets- and maybe even , my wife has reminded me- we can take advantage of the long term monthly rates ! .
Dear Tyler and family
Thank you so much for being our guests. I am glad that you appreciate our apartment as much as we (and others) have! We would love to welcome you back anytime- remember to book well in advance because it fills up quickly! I agree with your wife- a month or more in Paris would be wonderful and we would love to welcome you back for the longer stay ! We would also welcome your well behaved dog !
