Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday studio in Sorbonne

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

LOCATION is VACATION!

When strolling on the centuries old bridges of River Seine, steps from your studio, you will sunk the wonder of romantic Paris, this location is magical!

LE STUDIO XAVIER PRIVAS

is located on the second floor of a 16th Century building. With sunlight during the day, looking out onto a charming quiet courtyard with plants; but very quiet at night. There is a full-size bed (sleep 2) café-style table & chairs, kitchenette with microwave, coffee-maker, fridge, wine glasses, etc.

Rue Xavier Privas is in the heart of the historical Latin Quarter. You will be steps away from the romantic Bridges of River La Seine & church Notre Dame; at the heart of Paris in a pedestrian street lined with cafes, restaurants, bakeries and shops which create a festive ambiance. But pragmatically being centered saves money....as you can walk everywhere to all major monuments.

LE METRO

1 minute walk to metro St Michel and 2 minutes walk to RER B direct line to CDG airport.

HIGH BANDWIDTH WIFI to your laptop + TV + FREE international calling to dozen of countries including free long distance to USA Canada Australia Europe and China!

amazing time

  • 5 of 5

avel about 3 times a year to Paris for business. Convenience is my

priority. This is my first time at the Xavier Privas, I find it to be

perfect. Last year, I rented at the 5th Arrondissement around rue Mouffetard

but it was just too far. From the Xavier Privas, I can walk everywhere. It

is safe walking around the area, unlike sine of the other neighborhoods. The

studio was meticulously clean. Samy was so polite, always answering by "yes

sir" & "no sir", a kind of courtesy that we are unaccustomed to in the US.

Location Can't Always Be King

  • 2 of 5

After long days of sightseeing and walking, sometimes all you want is to unwind in the comfort of the room that you paid good money for. I will say that the description of the place is accurate: studio, sleeps 2, kitchenette (microwave and refrigerator) and bathroom and in a good location to get basically anywhere in Paris using the metro. However, the place is tiny, as in, I felt cramped and claustrophobic by the time we got settled in. The bathroom, also tiny, has a water heater that can sustain hot water for a 6 minute shower tops! My wife and I had to do very quick showers at night and one in the morning just to get a somewhat hot shower. The kitchenette is really just a refrigerator because we couldn't figure out how to use the microwave. I only say this because since the day I purchased my stay to the day I got there, I received roughly about 10 different emails with instructions and tips for getting around Paris and not one thing on how to work the microwave.These emails also seemed to be coming from 2 different people so most of the time I was unsure who I should be emailing with questions. In addition, we got all of this 'secret' information to enter the premises a week before our arrival and it turns out that one of the doors with a punch code isn't even needed. The door is essentially broke. We were able to walk right in to the plaza area of the apartment complex by just pushing on a door. Not as safe as it sounded from the email. Mind you, this is in one of the most populated tourist areas of Paris where you have all different sorts of people condensed into a couple city blocks hanginh out for drinks, food, souvenir shopping. A prime spot to to be robbed, even in the 'safety' of your VRBO studio or at best to be constantly harassed by the restaurant and shop owners selling you their product on the way to the studio. This also means that you cannot expect the area to be quiet at night either. Every night of our stay we could hear people in adjacent apartments making noise and talking at all hours of the night. I don't think I got one good of night sleep there. Lastly, you have to pay a cleaning fee to the people that maintain the premises. However, when we walked through the door, the price had increased. Scamming us out of money? It certainly felt like it. This place was overpriced and in my opinion you could find a 2 star hotel for the same price with better amenities and comfort.

The best thing about this rental is the location. It is in the heart of an area of Paris that all tourists want to see. You are within short walking distance to Notre Dame, Louvre, Pantheon, Sorbonne, Luxembourg Gardens, many museums and wonderful restaurants. We discovered (with the help of a local--a wonderful young woman on the train) the location of the elevator to and from the train platform we needed to access for transportation to Charles De Gaulle. This elevator is located about a block and a half towards the river from the front door of this apartment building. The beauty of this is that you do not have to fight with your suitcases on the many flights of stairs getting up and down to the train platform. This in itself is reason enough to want to rent this prime location. The bed is comfortable--it is clean--but the apartment is extremely small for two people. You better have a warm relationship because there is basically no privacy for anything private. You use the same sink for washing dishes (if you dirty any) and washing up or brushing your teeth. Not the greatest--in my humble opinion! It is a quiet location being on the interior of the building with the window looking out to the courtyard. This is very important since the neighborhood is very noisy in the evening. Never fear---you hear no street noise in this apartment. Very QUIET!

Perfect location in the heart of Paris!

  • 4 of 5

So much history in one little apartment! We loved the location and the apartment was all that we needed. It is a little small but you adapt pretty quickly and you can't beat the location. Close to Notre Dame cathedral, shops, restaurants and everything you could possibly need! Paris is beautiful and it was nice to have such a centrally located apartment to call home during our stay.

Cool little apartment

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the studio was great except for a few downfalls. I received way too many emails with so many instructions that it became really confusing and led to me not understanding which was our correct address which eventually made it hard to find the apartment. They could be more succinct with the amount of information given. The bathroom is very tiny and doesn't match the photo shown, but it was clean and manageable. As long as you expect a very small apartment then you will be good as the studio is super cute and tidy. The other negative thing was they made us pay an extra 40 euro for 'building fee's' as we left the apartment. I thought that was ridicuslous, since it should have been included in the price of the studio. The Latin Quarter is a bit hectic but overall the studio is great and centrally located. All in all though, I would definitely recommend this studio even with the small annoyances :)

Fantastic Studio!

  • 5 of 5

This studio was right in the middle of everything, it was so easy to walk everywhere or hop on the metro. I felt very safe and lots of great food choices. I would definitely stay here again!

You will be in the heart of historic Paris, walking distance to all monuments and site seeings, cafe sipping at terraces. We recomend a boat trip on La river Seine... Magical!
