Quiet and calm family building centrally located. On one of Paris' best streets in St. Germain. A place to rest your head after a long day of sightseeing. Despite the exciting location, once you enter the building, the noise of Paris melts away.

The Space

It's all about location, location, location!
We are lucky to live on one of the liveliest streets in all of Paris. But at night, everything is quiet and calm, thanks to being in the back courtyard of a typical Parisian apartment building. (However, this is an apartment with other tenants who live their own lives, the only noise you would ever experience would be the occasional (and unforseeable) "neighbor noises". You are on the groundfloor - no need to walk up stairs.

Our large studio apartment has a separate sleeping area (enclosed by curtains for privacy) for 2 people together in a comfortable standard double bed.
-And we have a large mezzanine with 2 comfortable single futons that can accommodate 2 adults (or children 7 years and above).

HIGH ceilings and 3 large windows which open onto open courtyard. Bathroom with toilet, shower, tub, and a line to hang your delicates to dry. There are drawers and small storage for clothes and also one closet complete with hangers for your hanging items. (if you are renting for a period of 3 weeks or longer, we will give you both closets). There is a laudromat open every day of the week from 7am until 11pm just NEXT DOOR.

Grocery store ACROSS THE STREET and also several fresh market stands around the corner. All the great shopping and cafes of St. Germain at your doorstep! Metro just 2 blocks away (Odeon). We are walking distance from the Seine, Notre Dame, movie theaters, Cafe Flore, Les Deux Magots, and the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens!

You have everything included (hot and cold water, electricity, internet, local phone (and to US free), television). Fresh linens and towels. Dishes, flatware and cooking utensils. There is a bistro table with 4 chairs to have your fromage and baguette when you need it.

You will have a fabulous time in your Paris pied-a-terre - why stay at the overpriced hotels next door when you can rent our place?!

Guest Access

Everything in the apartment is at your disposable, except of course we ask that you respect our belongings and also our neighbors by not partying inside our apartment.

Interaction with Guests

In all likelihood, you will not be seeing us, but maybe someone from our staff (cleaning lady, etc). We manage the listing from abroad, but are always available.

Other Things to Note

Sorry, but we do not have any baby beds in our apartment. You would have to bring your own in case you need one.

  • There are not enough good things to say about this listing!! It was exactly as portrayed in the write-up. You walk off the bustling, loud and VERY FUN street, and immediately it is calm and quiet. The host left very clear and easy to follow instructions on how to get into the building, how to access the apartment, and what the house rules were for the stay. The room was charming, quiet, had many places to sleep and the beds were comfortable. I would highly recommend this listing, and if we ever went back to Paris we would stay there again. The location was great and accessible to so many areas of Paris. A gem of a place!!

  • The location of this flat is perfect. Rue de Buci is in the heart of St. Germaine and within a short walk from the Louvre, Notre Dame and Metro stations. The interior of the flat was as advertised. Think of it like a large single room with a small kitchen and small bath added on. The primary sleeping space is a bed under the loft, but there is additional sleeping space on a futon on the loft, which worked well for us, as we have two grown children. The flat would work for friends or a family, but probably wouldn't be ideal for couples as the sleeping space is in a single large room. Right outside the front door is a wonderful street and there are lots of interesting side streets, with numerous good restaurants and shops nearby. There's also a full market only 1/2 block away.

  • Quaint place in a great location - outside noise was not an issue. Perfect for one couple! Instructions provided by the hosts were very good- had no issues getting in. This was my first experience with airbnb and I will book here again in a heartbeat! Overall very pleased with our time in Paris and hope to come back very soon!

  • This apartment was perfect for our stay. It is located on the BEST street in all of Paris Rue du Buci! Since it is located off of a little courtyard it was fairly quiet. It was a much better value than the hotel we had been planning to book. There was plenty of room and seating for relaxing after a day of walking around the streets of Paris. It is so close to the Louvre, Luxembourg gardens, Notre Dame etc that walking was no problem! Would recommend. It is on the ground floor so if steps are an issue this would be a perfect fit.

  • I can't say enough about what a wonderful experience I had in this terrific space. However, seeing as how I'm typing with my thumbs I'll keep this short. The space well exceeded my expectations, the host was courteous and responsive, and if I should be lucky enough to return to Paris soon I would hope I'd also be lucky enough to stay in this wonderful space again.

  • This is the best place to stay in paris. It is On this amazing street and right at the intersection of Rue de Seine and Rue de Buci. 

    Very centrally located. Barely five minutes walk to Seine. 10 mins from Notre Dame, Luxembourg Gardens, Saint Germain Church, Shakespeare and Co, Place from where boat trips for Seine start etc etc.

    Two of us lived there for a couple of weeks, and it was perfect for us. Tons of eating places both sides of the road. On weekends there would be live music acts on the street. Supermarket (Champion) is barely few shops away. (while the street can get noisy, it is very quiet inside the studio)..

    Studio is actually bigger than what it seems in the pictures. Kitchen is small but very functional. Hot water, heating, wifi, washing machine, dryer, coffee maker.. It has everything one could need for a comfortable stay..

    We would highly recommend it for a couple / couple with kids..

    Anytime we are in Paris next, this is where we are staying ..

  • fantastic location. Studio is very basic but clean and cosy. Can get a little cold and hot water runs out pretty quick but overall its good if you are visiting for a few days and going to be out mostly
