Full sets of cutlery and crockery are provided along with pots and pans to let you try out some delicious traditional French recipes during your stay.

The apartment contains two large bedrooms, each with a comfortable double bed. Linens and sheets are provided, with beds neatly made for your arrival.

The apartment is heated throughout during the winter months. There is no air conditioning but we will be happy to provide you with fans for your stay should warm weather be in the forecast.

A member of our Welcoming Team will meet you upon arrival, give you the keys and a tour of the apartment and its appliances, help you to connect to the Wi-Fi and more. You’ll find a personal guidebook in the apartment with tips and suggestions on where to eat and shop in Paris.

About the 6th Arrondissement:

If you weren’t yet convinced to book from the apartment itself, just consider the property’s location right in the center of Saint Germain des Pres. This famous Left Bank neighbourhood, known as the “Rive Gauche” to Parisians, has been a long time-favourite of intellectuals and artists. At your doorstep you’ll find a huge array of restaurants, bistrots, cafés, ice cream parlours, florists, artisan chocolatiers, art galleries and much more! Be sure to make a stop at Le Bon March�� during your stay in the 6th Arrondissement.

Within walking distance of the apartment are the must-see Luxembourg Gardens, perfect for a morning jog, afternoon picnic or sunset stroll. The River Seine is also within walking distance so you can go to the Louvre or Notre Dame easily on foot. The Latin Quarter is a stone’s throw away with sights such as La Sorbonne and the newly refurbished Pantheon. Walk over to Le Marais district for shopping and dining on Sunday while the rest of the city is at rest.

With its close proximity to the metro station Odeon (Lines 4 and 10), accessing other areas of the capital is extremely easy. Just hop on the Metro to reach the Eiffel Towel, Champs Elysées and the Arc de Triomphe, Montmartre and the Sacre Coeur and more!

With its family-friendly atmosphere, spacious bedrooms, intelligent layout and prime location, this apartment rental in Saint Germain des Pres has all the makings for a true Parisian experience. Look no further for your Paris holiday accommodations!

Poor Response Time from Owner, Elevator Unreliable, Poorly Stocked Apt., Bathtub Wouldn't Drain

  • 1 of 5

Note that the description said "elevator in building," not that it was reliably operational. It was broken for 5 days. It took 4 attempted contacts with different people associated with building before we got a response! "We don't know when the elevator will be fixed." Permanent residents in the bldg. said this happens "a lot." We are almost 70 years old, had one hip replacement and had a very difficult time negotiating the circular staircase for 3 floors. The bathtub did not drain properly. By the time you finished a shower and washed your hair, the water was halfway up your calves. One time it took about 4 hours for the bathtub to drain. We cleaned the strainer in the tub every time we used the tub, but the problem is in the plumbing. The kitchen was not stocked properly. In the owner's response to Jan E. he said a full set of utensils had been purchased since his/her visit. That is not true. Still 3 coffee mugs, 2 small bowls, only 1 pot and one skillet, no spatula. We had to buy a new expresso pot, since the one there didn't work. The appliances in the kitchen did not work reliably. "If the washer doesn't start, push this button and hit the door hard." There is no microwave.

We have 2 good comments about the apartment; the location is outstanding and the apartment is good sized. That being said we would never stay there again.

Owner's Response: Dear Sandra, thank you for taking the time to write such a thorough review regarding your recent stay with us in Paris. We are sorry to hear that the apartment did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately we could not do much when the lift went out of order as it is operated by a private company and it is the building manager's responsibility to repair it, but we can assure you it is working now once again. With a small request, we would have been more than happy to assist you with your luggage upon checkout. A lift going out of order could happen anywhere from an apartment to a hotel, to a train or Metro station. If for any reason we seemed unapproachable, we do apologize. Had the drainage issue been signaled to us, we would have been more than happy to address it properly so that you could have had an easier time with the shower. Regarding the kitchen supplies, we have made note of your suggestions and intend to buy the few extra items you found missing. Unfortunately guests often accidentally break glasses or mugs but do not inform us right away, and therefore they do not get replaced immediately. Other utensils such as forks or knives tend to disappear when guests go to the riverbanks to enjoy a Parisian picnic. Again, we do wish you had reached out to let us know you were unsatisfied with the kitchen equipment so we could have remedied it during your stay.

The apartment and building were both unwelcoming and poorly maintained.

  • 1 of 5

First of all, the owners sent someone to meet us and we had to wait at an address across the street for about thirty minutes. Once the gentlemen met us with a key, he walked us up to the apartment. The building, staircase and elevator were very dirty. The beds were uncomfortable and cheap. It was very difficult to open the front door and the lock was halfway broken, seemingly ineffective in securing the apartment that contained our valuables. The bathroom was stocked with liquid soaps that had been mostly used, refilled with water, and placed back on the shelf. There was some black mold in the tub. There was some dirty dishes of soap under the sink. The towel rack was broken and did not work. One of the most annoying parts was the fridge; it did not work at all, but we did not realize that at first. We bought some nice cheeses and placed them in the fridge, only to come back to the apartment later to a terrible smell and ruined cheese. The coffee maker was also very dirty and full of coffee grinds. This was, by far, one of the worst apartments I've rented during my travels. While the location and furniture were okay, the apartment was, again, not worth it.

Owner's Response: Bonjour Marite, thank you for a sincere review. We are sorry to that you didn’t feel our rental offered a good value for the price you paid. We have been in business for over 7 years and have hosted thousands of satisfied guests. Our team uses the very rare incidents such as this one to re-oil our operations so that the dissatisfaction never happens again. We would love to be able to discuss with you more if you could reach out to us. We only provide a small starter pack of toilet paper, soaps and shampoos to kick off your stay and we suggest that guests like yourself who are staying for an extended period either pack these toiletries or plan on purchasing them during your stay. These can easily be found in the nearby grocery store. We do not refill the shampoo as it is much easier to replace the bottles with new ones. We have verified the issues you have mentioned and it seems that the towel rack and the fridge are working fine. If for any reason we seemed unapproachable, we apologize, as with a quick phone call or text message we could have easy come over to help you with the connection. We hope you will reach out for your next trip to Paris as we have many apartments to offer and there is surely one which meets your criteria in terms of location, size and amenities. Merci et à bientôt!

Very nice flat and excellent location, but no kitchen utensils.

  • 3 of 5

Very nice flat and excellent location, but no kitchen utensils.

There were almost no pots and pans.

There were three different coffee mugs a couple of plates in different shapes.

Lucky we had not planned to eat there.

We recommend the owners to buy a starting kit at IKEA.

It contains everything and it is quite cheap

Owner's Response: Dear Jan, We apologize that you found the kitchen to be lacking in some equipment and we have since revised the cooking utensils to provide a more complete set of equipment. With a quick phone call or an email we could have easily replaced the missing items. We have now purchased a full set, so the next time you visit for work or pleasure you will be able to use the kitchen to the most. We hope you are doing well and look forward to hearing from you soon!

Great location, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in August, and it was perfect for our family of four. We were met on time (and the owners even met us a little early, at our request) and never had any issues with the place.

The photos are a good representation of the apartment, which has two bedrooms and a spacious common area, with basic but practical furnishing. Windows open to cafe life down below on one side and street life on the other. Street noise is audible below, but being four floors up it was not overwhelming. We washed clothes and used the refrigerator; there's a small kitchen but we never fully utilized it, largely because...

The location is hard to beat. Restaurants and cafes are at the doorstep (with a quaint cobblestone pedestrian street below), and it's not far from Notre Dame and picnics on the Seine. It's right on main metro lines and bus stops, but also walkable to major sights. All in all, an ideal place for us!

Comfortable apartment in a wonderful area of Paris.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four recently spent 3 nights in this apartment. The apartment was bright, spacious and comfortable. The location was amazing and we enjoyed the vibrant neighborhood. It is close to the Odeon metro stop and this made it easy to get around Paris. The kitchen was adequate but we never actually cooked. We could not get the television to work, but we did not have time to watch TV anyway. Someone from the management team met us when we arrived without a problem. The area was safe and the elevator was useful for hauling our luggage.
