Great Base for Enjoying the City!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice rental right in the heart of Paris Latin Quarter. It had everything we were looking for and is as described on the listing. We find it very clean, properly maintained with a great terrace for enjoying the Parisan summer. The Master suite is very spacious and has access to the bathroom. The second bedroom is a little smaller but nicely done, both face the terrace. Elizabeth, who checked us in, was quick in responding to questions and giving us ideas and recommendations during our stay. There is a beautiful cafe/coworking space just next door (below the terrace) where my husband actually ended up working on two different days. There’s also a nice Frenchy restaurant up the street on the corner with Rue des Ecoles with a fantastic wine list and a must-try dish made with potatoes and a TON of fromage. The Metro is just down the hill so you can get around the city easily, even if I have to admit we mostly used Uber rides to go around (really convenient if you’re 3-4 people). We only had 5 nights in Paris but could easily have stayed there much longer with such an amazing and comfortable base from which to enjoy the city. Highly recommended and would return.

Great location and Beautiful Terrace in the heart of the Latin Quarter

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location which is close to Pantheon, Notre Dame, Latin Quarter, St Germain and many other great spots. The outdoor terrace was excellent for morning coffee and evening wine. The overall apartment is roomy but the 2nd bedroom has no privacy (only curtains). We enjoyed staying here but for the price, the apartment could use some minor repair and upkeep. The plants on the terrace were mostly dead and not cared for and while the terrace was nice to use, it could have been spectacular.

Owner's Response: Bonjour Carlan and merci for taking the time to submit a review. We are happy to know you loved the fantastic 5th Arrondissement location. The apartment is well situated for visiting most of Paris by foot. We apologize for the fact that the terrace did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately our plants suffered a little this summer due to the unusually high temperatures we experienced in Paris. We are working to bring them back to a healthy state and if we do not manage, we will simply remove them and wait for the springtime to replant some new ones. Carlan, we hope this has not affected your overall opinion of us and we would be grateful to be given a second chance to host you in the future. You will benefit from a discounted rate for returning guests. Take care and à la prochaine fois!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

First, this apartment is large, but by Paris standards, it is huge! There were 4 adults and a 6 month old who shared this space and it was very roomy. The terrace is a nice addition and we enjoyed sitting outside. The facility was clean and well-kept. The kitchen was well-equipped and we especially enjoyed the washing machine since we had been traveling for 2 weeks. The only 2 issues that should be easily remediated are 1) the igniter on the burners for the stove did not work so we had to use a match 2) The large dead plants on the terrace really should be completely removed. It would have been much nicer to have no plants in them.

It was very easy to communicate with the managers. Elizabeth, who met us at the apartment, was superb! She was timely and gave us excellent instructions as well as great suggestions for markets, restaurants, etc.

We will return to Paris and I will definitely hope this apartment is available and that Elizabeth will continue to be our host!

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup, Becky, for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased to know you had a great stay in the apartment, enjoyed our services and that the location worked out so well for you. We are working to fix the igniter problem on the stove and have included a flame thrower in the flat in the meantime to help ignite the burners for guests looking to cook during their stay. Regarding the terrace, sadly our plants suffered a little from the unusually high temperatures we experienced in Paris this summer. We are working to bring them back to a healthy state and if we do not manage, we will simply remove them and wait for the springtime to replant some new ones. Becky, we appreciate you recommending the apartment to family and friends and hope you'll reach out to us the next time you visit so we may give you a special rate for returning guests. À bientôt!

Perfect Location!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is very much as advertised. The location is perfect, near to markets, street vendors, grocery stores, and the neat jewelry store a block away. Our group of four ladies felt safe in the apartment and the terrace is a real plus after a long day of sight seeing. We will be returning to this location on future holidays.

Heart of Latin Quarter

  • 5 of 5

Recently rented this nice apartment in the heart of the Latin Quarter. The place was very clean and quite large for Parisian standards (I lived in Paris for a stint after college and let me say my place was a tad bit smaller!). There's plenty going on in the neighborhood - fresh food market down the street a few days of the week, an awesome new coffee shop just next door (in the little courtyard where the terrace faces). We loved having a washing machine available as we stayed here for several days and it was not the last leg of our EuroTrip. Many good restaurants within a couple blocks (especially up the rue de la Montagne Sainte Genvieve!). Can recommend for the location and the uniqueness of this place. It's not everyday you find a converted church with a terrace like this.

Large apartment in great neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is huge for Paris and we loved the terrace. Check in was timely. Unfortunately, the terrace had nasty cigarette butts in the candle holders and the stovetop igniters did not work....I finally went out and bought some matches. Also , a bit of paint chipping throughout the apt. We had a great stay and the discount spring rate is fantastic. I would hesitate to pay $500 / night in the high season though.
