Just 5 minutes on foot from Notre Dame and Saint Germain des Prés, close to the Saint Michel metro and many bus routes. An ideal starting point to discover the exceedingly beautiful cultural and tourist hotspots of the capital city. Numerous cafés, restaurants, cinemas, art galleries and shops nearby.

Beautiful apartment on quiet street in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful second floor apartment in a gorgeous 300 year old building off a small quiet street just five minutes from the St. Michele metro. Walk to bustling Rue Buci, historic Blvd. St/ Germaine, Notre Dame, Musee d'Orsay, and practically everything else in central Paris. Besides the great location, the apartment is truly lovely, with hardwood floors, high ceilings, and floor to ceiling windows opening on two sides. It is fully equipped with everything you might need to enjoy your stay. Mina and Marc are the best hosts ever -- Mina will greet you, get you squared away on the wifi, the espresso machine, give you street maps, and offer any other guidance you might need. They are close by if you need them but completely unobtrusive if you don't. A bonus -- Marc is an excellent piano player and if your windows are open you might just catch some beautiful (and free) happy hour entertainment from his grand piano! We were there for 8 days and can't wait to go back. Thanks Mina and Marc!

Great hosts with a perfectly located apartment

  • 5 of 5

Marc and Mina are the best. Their apartment is very tastefully decorated with plenty of light streaming through the double panes windows. It has a fully equipped kitchen and large bathroom with large shower. The living and dining areas are very comfortable with a fold out bed. The bedroom area has a very comfortable queen sized bed and plenty of closet and drawer space. The location is remarkable. Just across the Seine from the Notre Dame cathedral, a block from the St Michel RER and metro stations, right in the heart of the St Michel and St Germaine areas with all their shops, restaurants, and cafes nearby. The apartment is on the second floor of a renovated building on a small, almost pedestrian only street.

But the best part are the hosts. Marc and Mina are so welcoming and constantly concerned with their guests well being. They live just below the apartment. It was always a delight to hear the music of Marc's piano playing wafting up through the floor boards. They are wonderful conversationalists. Our chocolate experience with them will never be forgotten. I can't wait to get back to Paris and spend more time with our new friends.

Ideal location . . . ideal owners!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfectly located on a quiet street just off St. Michel Square. It is clean and roomy enough for two people with the bedroom separated by a wall and curtain. With windows on two walls it is very bright. The bathroom and shower are fine, and the kitchen is typically European (but you are in Paris, after all, so why would you cook?) Everything you need is there. We were met warmly by Mina who made us feel at home immediately. She and Marc are wonderful, and live just below the apartment. In addition to being very helpful, we spent some lovely time socializing with them. You will enjoy Marc's piano serenades from below -- Schumann especially -- and I treasure our playing duets together. Traveling can be stressful, and knowing that Marc and Mina will be there to make you feel at home is truly a wonderful addition to renting their apartment.

Charming Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay in this charming apartment for 5 nights. It was a perfect location for sightseeing as the metro is close by. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed to cook a few meals in the apartment. It is a great bathroom and a comfortable bed. The wifi worked like a charm. The apartment is near many bustling streets with great restaurants and cafes. Thanks to Aurelien who helped us with apartment. We definitely hope to be back.

5 Rue Suger is superb!

  • 5 of 5

Review of stay Sept 3-Oct 3 and Oct 24-Nov. 9, 2015.

We are an American couple who planned a 7 week stay in Paris this fall. We selected an apartment listed with VRBO. What a good idea it was. This apartment was located in a highly desirable location on the left bank, near L'Eglise Notre Dame, steps away from Rue St. Michel and Rue St Germain. We could not have selected a more hospitable, comfortable, centralized and conveniently located site.

Our stay at this location, 5 Rue Suger offered the magic of Paris near our front door, two stories above street level on a classically narrow side street at the edge of the Seine.

Our visit was further enhanced by the kindness of the apartment owners, Marc and Mina. Because we spoke limited French, their communication in English helped us several times to understand and overcome situations related to geography, transportation, wifi and other communication needs. Further, their apartment included such amenities as a washer and dryer, all kitchen equipment, cable TV and printed maps and books for the traveler in France. Their kind assistance and support made us feel like we were home away from home. Our uncertainty with the language and unfamiliarity with the transportation and other services were clearly explained by Marc and Mina.

Now that we are back home, we often reminisce about and miss our stay in Paris at 5 Rue Suger.
