Elegant apartment in a 1850's building, located on rue Monge, in the 5th. arrondissement, historical center of Paris.
3 min walking from two metro stations: Place Monge and Censier Daubenton. Two blocks away from rue Mouffetard, therefore very practical but far from it's noise.
On the first floor of the building, and not on the ground floor, (no lift, but only 16 steps to climb), it faces a quiet street.
Two separate bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other with a double sofa-bed. For real privacy and confort. Loads of wardrobe space. A window in each bedroom.
The living room has a sofa bed that can sleep another person if needed. The table serves 4/5 people confortably. This red table has a lever that makes it go down to coffe table height and up to dining table height.
The bathroom has a shower with 2 options: a big shower head or a small hand held shower. It also has a window.
The apartment is fully equipped, with microwave oven, vitroceramic cooktop, fridge, a washing/drying machine for your clothes, coffee machine, toaster, hairdryer, ironing stuff etc. High speed internet access is provided for your computers. The telephone is unlimited to land lines of 90 countries (but not to mobiles). Plus cable TV with international channels. Towels and all linen are included.
The apartment is close to many activities by walking:
Place Monge (3 min) where you may enjoy a typical Parisian open air market held three times per week - wednesday, friday and sunday from 7h to 13h.
Jardin des Plantes (7min): The Jardin des Plantes is the main botanical garden in France, founded in 1626, as a medicinal herb garden for king Louis 13th. In 1640 it opened to the public. Great for jogging and taking the kids to see dinosaurs and other real life size pre-historic animals at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle.
Jardin du Luxembourg (15 min): a wonderful place, the most appreciated garden by parisians.
Rue Mouffetard (3 min): a charming medieval street , lively and full of restaurants and bars. It is also one of the best streets for buying fish - poissonerie, meat - boucherie, sweets - patisserie, bread - boulangerie, veggies and anything else you can desire in french gastronomy.
The Great Mosque of Paris (7min): a mosque which you can visit. It houses a fantastic Spa (hammam, sauna and massages) and a tea house with the typical thé à la menthe. Beautiful architecture.
You will also find a grocery shop situated just in front the entrance of the building and a bakery at the corner. Several others a block away in roughly any direction.
The neighborhood is lively and young, however, the windows of our apartment face a tiny street and will therefore provide you with all the quiet you may need. The apartment is situated on the first floor without a lift, with only 16 steps to climb.
By the way there are no cleaning fees at all, and no extra charges of any kind.
Minimum stay: 4 days.
In general the check-in is at 14h, and the check out at 11am. But if there is no guest the day before or after, we are flexible on the hours of arrival and departure.
You do have to advise me if you want a very late check-in (after 22h) as I live far away, so I have to agree to it before you book.
When you reserve, please communicate your incoming and departure flights so that we meet you at the right time. We check the adp (Aeroports de Paris) site to see if the plane is on time.
Is was a nice, well located, efficient little apartment. The apartment was clean. There's a supermarket across the street en the metrostation is close by.
We really enjoyed staying in this apartment, the location is fantastic with everything you need on your doorstep, supermarket across the road, pharmacy a few doors down, two metro stops only a very short walk away. The apartment was quite cosy with a small living room. The two bedrooms were a decent size for Paris standards and we found the beds very comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom are small but are very functional and have everything you need. We ate out most of the time anyway. We stayed in the middle of winter with a 4 month old baby and I was worried the apartment would be too cold but the heating was great, we didn't find it cold at all. Beatriz met us when we arrived and was so friendly and helpful. We will definitely try and book this apartment when we return to Paris for a visit and recommend it to all our friends
Hemos pasado 4 noches en París en el apartamento de Beatriz. La ubicación es muy buena, el apartamento es fiel a las fotos, además de muy calentito y silecioso. El barrio tiene todos los servicios disponibles, farmacia, supermercado, panaderías, restaurantes, el metro al lado...
Por todo ello, recomiendo el apartamento de Beatriz. Sin duda será mi opción cuando vuelva a París. Ha sido una estancia perfecta!!!
Muchas gracias por todo!
Fantastic, well located, efficient little apartment. Thanks Beatriz. Looooveed the local area, your help and easy accessibility. Everything you needed within a 5 minute radius. The small things you included (bottle wine, tissues, tourist info and maps) made the stay even better. We will certainly recommend you to our friends and hope your apartment is still available when we have saved enough money to be able to return to gorgeous Paris.
A experiência foi excelente. Ficamos em ótima acomodação. Apartamento totalmente equipado, confortável e muito bem (website hidden) lado do metro mas com tudo perto - supermercado, padaria, restaurantes, pontos turísticos. Agradecemos a Beatriz que foi muito gentil e atenciosa nos fornecendo todas as informações necessárias. Indicamos e esperamos retornar !
Beatriz's apartment was a great place to stay in Paris. She greeted us on our arrival and showed us how everything worked in the apartment. The apartment was clean, cozy, and fully equipped. The location on rue Monge was very convenient. It is close to the metro making it easy to get to any attractions in the city. The neighborhood itself is very charming with a market a few steps away several times a week.
A Beatriz é uma excelente anfitriã! Super simpática e generosa! Logo na chegada nos deu todas as coordenadas básicas para a estadia na cidade - e uma garrafa de vinho :) ! O apartamento corresponde exatamente à descrição do site. Muito aconchegante, funcional e bem localizado, acomoda confortavelmente 4 pessoas. Além das estações de metrô ao lado, se você preferir caminhar pela cidade, há várias opções turísticas de fácil acesso. No ap você irá encontrar uma grande variedade de livros com informações sobre Paris, dicas sobre a língua, mapas e sugestões de passeios - e ainda telefone liberado para ligar para vários países!!! Foi nossa primeira experiência no AirBnb e não poderia ter sido melhor! Recomendadíssimo!
I am Brazilian - from Rio de Janeiro, have studied in the USA twice, my junior high school year in Dallas, and my graduate studies in Arizona at AGSIM, or Thunderbird.
I have 3 children and have lived in Paris for the last 20 years and love it here.
