Cozy, compact, and centralized in the Latin Quarter

  • 4 of 5

There are very few things that we had trouble with during our stay in Paris. The apartment was just up the street from a bustling intersection in the Latin Quarter, which meant that we were never far from something to do.

As is made clear in the description, the apartment is small. For Americans used to 500+ sq. feet, the space may be uncomfortably small, but we found that it fit our needs - this is definitely a place to stay if you plan on spending all day exploring Paris and simply need a place to cook a meal, take a shower and lay your head.

Speaking of the sleeping, the lofted bed was perfect for us; spacious with multiple wall outlets and just enough room between the mattress and the ceiling.

The only real problems we had involved the shower. The spout was clogged and didn't exactly spray water so much as it just poured out. We managed, but due to the drain also having drainage issues, showers included shutting off the spout in the middle of washing to let the water slowly drain as not to cause an overflow. On a smaller note, there is not much closet space (just a few hangers underneath the stairs to the bed), so plan to live out of your suitcase. These problems were unfortunate, as we had an excellent stay aside from them.

Finally, while we never met Christophe, he was communicative over the app and responded within the hour. Personally, this is how we like our hosts: there when needed, but not intrusive, so we were very pleased with his service.

Great little apartment in the heart of Saint Germain.

  • 5 of 5

This tiny apartment is very well laid out. It is cozy, clean and bright and has all of the necessities. My husband and I spent five days here and appreciated the location. So many Paris attractions are with in walking distance and the building is quiet. Communication with Christophe was smooth and we were met at the appointed time. We enjoyed this apartment but you do have to be a bit nimble to climb up to the sleeping area in the loft.

Superb location, gracious owner, perfect basecamp

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect setup for our 1st forray into Paris of 6 days in March. Owner Christophe was very friendly, gave good directions via email to meet us at Pantheon (300 meters from the apt) after having arrived at ORY Airport, drove us around the neighborhood for a quick tour as a starter. When checking out, he took us to the back alley entrance to the nearby Saint-Michel PER station for CDG Airport. The station was undergoing some renovation with its normal entrance closed for a period of time.

The apartment served us, 2 adults, well as a basecamp to explore Paris, had everything we needed including a kitchenette - definitely beats staying in a hotel room.

Above all, our interaction with Christophe really made the stay special. Merci beaucoup, Christophe.

This was my second solo trip to Paris and both times I have rented M. Giolito's apartment. When I return, I will definitely consider this studio again. While small, it is clean, safe, quiet, and ideally located. In addition, M. Giolito is a considerate host, offering useful local information and being very accommodating for arrivals/departures.

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This little spot had absolutely everything we needed for our four night stay.

Like all the other reviews say, it IS small, but for one or two people, it's perfect. There are power outlets all over the place which was super helpful for keeping everything charged. Also, after drying my hair at home this morning, I'm 100% sure that the hair dryer provided in this apartment is superior to my own. The bed is quite comfortable, though one cannot fully sit up in it because it is close to the ceiling. The kitchen area had everything we needed and more- I've stayed at another VRBO place where you had to buy just about everything down to salt and pepper; this place had those along with sugar, oil, vinegar, and a few other condiments. Very convenient! There was even the tiniest freezer in the little fridge which had a full little ice tray in it. Perfection.

There are tons of amazing restaurants around the area- each meal we had was at a different place and all of the food was so good. There are bus and metro stops very close which allowed us to travel far and wide and see the sights. We felt very safe walking around the Latin Quarter as well.

Christophe was also extremely accommodating. He was very flexible with both our meeting time and our departure. He even carried my 40lbs bag up the stairs. Such a gentleman!

10/10 would definitely stay here again when traveling in Paris.
