About This Listing
25 m2 apartment 10 min. from Notre Dame (on foot)
3rd floor (elevator from the 1st floor)
3 sleeps (1 double bed + 1 single bed)
Wireless Internet broadband
Quiet area near Paris main attractions
This 25 m2-apartment is located on the 3rd floor (with elevator from the first floor) of a typical Parisian building. It includes a main room that can accommodate 2 people (1 double bed + 1 sofa bed for 1 person), a kitchenette and a bathroom with shower and toilet. It has a high-speed Wi-Fi connection (fiber optic).
Two large windows facing south bring a lot of bright and offer a view over a pretty courtyard garden. In this court, on the left when viewed from the apartment, you will see a corbel lying on two columns. This is the remains of the fortification built in 1209 under the auspices of Philip Augustus, King of France from (phone number hidden).
Not further than 100 meters (300 ft) from the apartment, on ‘Pont de la Tournelle’ bridge, you get one of the best views of Notre Dame Cathedral. You will also enjoy the banks of the Seine, ideal for a stroll away from the bustle of the city in an atmosphere that is both romantic and festive. It is indeed a place where many Parisians rendezvous on sunny days to catch up with friends over a picnic.
Coming from the airports by train, you can easily find your way to the apartment by walking along the Seine from Saint-Michel - Notre Dame station (10 min. walk). The apartment’s neighborhood is also served by metro lines 7 and 10 (Cardinal-Lemoine and Jussieu stations).
We spent two nights in this apartment and we think it is perfect for few days in Paris. The place is clean, small (as described in the post) but very comfortable and well equipped (i.e. sheets, blankets, towels, hair dryer). The location is great, in the heart of Paris, and very convenient to visit the city.
Fred was always very kind and ready to assist if we needed something. Fred's collegues were waiting for us for the check-in giving us all the info. We definetely recommend this place.
Vel fremme ved togstasjonen ved Notre Dame fikk vi en sms hvor vi ble ønsket velkommen til Paris og Freds hjelper stod og ventet på oss ved leiligheten. Han hjalp oss med bagasjen opp til 3 etg. Leiligheten var liten men fungerte bra for oss denne helgen. Det var rent og pent og funksjonelt. Den lå sentralt til og var et godt utgangspunkt for besøk til Louvre (en deilig spasertur langs Seinen), til Notre Dame og til bydelen Marais og Latinerkvarteret. Vinduene var ut mot en sjarmerende og stille bakgård. Vi er fornøyde og kommer gjerne igjen
There are a few things to know about this place and I think Fred acknowledged them in his description: it is not huge, rather compact. You'll need to climb some stairs, there is an elevator however you need to get up one floor to take it. Or use the stairs to the third floor. It is a nice old building and everything worked. There was a free international phone.
The neighborhood is terrific, Rue St Germain, Noter Dame, and much more are very close.
This apartment was perfect for our needs. One of Fred's collegues patiently waited for us while we were stuck in traffic on the Peripherique. He was very helpful and gave us good advice for restaurants etc. Found parking outside front door. Great area. Everything we needed was available. It was bright and airy. Windows opened onto colourful geraniums and the courtyard. Very French. Many thanks. Would recommend.
I stayed at Fred's place for two nights and would recommend this apartment to everyone who wants to stay in Paris on a low budget. It is in a great spot in Paris so that you can walk almost everywhere . If you don't want to walk there is a lot of public transportation nearby. The trip from Orly to the apartment by the RE took about 40 minutes and really convenient.
Finding the place was also easy and at the scheduled meeting time one of Fred's employees greeted me and was really friendly and kind.
Would always stay at this place again if I will return to Paris under similar circumstances.
Fred and Pierre were awesome, were waiting for us and provided good information and answered all question, no matter how small. The apartment was lovely and charming. It was above expectations, clean and very functional. The location was perfect. Close to the main attractions and the hub of the latin quarter. Could not want anymore. Will stay with again and recommend highly. Thanks agian Fred and Pierre.

About the Host, Fred
Je m'appelle Fred Rodrigues-Marinho et j'habite à Paris depuis 30 ans.
J'habite dans le quartier Pigalle-Montmartre, un endroit haut en couleurs qui, pour moi, rassemble tout ce qui fait l’âme de Paris. C'est un quartier très cosmopolite dans lequel se mélangent joyeusement la culture et le divertissement et qui est fréquenté par les touristes comme par les Parisiens.
A bientôt !
