Fantastic neighborhood steps from all the sightseeing, next to river Seine and Cathedral Notre Dame! The Latin Quarter is situated on the left bank of river Seine in the 5th district, around famous Sorbonne University. Known for its student life, lively atmosphere and bistros, the Latin Quarter is the home to a number of higher education establishments besides the university itself. The area gets its name from the Latin language, which was once widely spoken in and around the University since Latin was the international language of learning in the Middle Ages. You are in the heart of history!
You will have easy access to Metro St Michel (2 minutes walk)
The RER lined located 5 minutes walk from the apartment takes you directly to CDG & Orly Airport.
Rules of The House
WELCOME TO YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME and to our loyal community of the Friends-of-the-House.
This is a self-catering accommodation in the heart of Paris-on-a-budget.
Who are our guests?
Through the years, our loyal & distinguished guests, (professors, researchers, artists, lawyers, physicians & honeymooners) have demanded centrally located studios steps from the magical Parisian Bridges and a walking distance from all major sights, museums & Universities, at the lowest prices to save their money for more important things.
Our formula of no-frills accommodation delights everyone for years, you save money while you feel and act like a PARISIAN, if you break something fix it, replace it, if you run out of something buy what you need like a true Parisian, on the day of departure you will leave the studio as clean, or cleaner for the next guest who will come here to enjoy this fabulous location, second to none.
Generous guests left paintings, wine glasses, flowers and even poems. We rely on your generosity to keep these 7 studios operationally-self-sufficient in the face of daunting rising expenses in Paris. (Paris in now the second most expensive city in the World.)
Some guests pay the 120eu for cleaning services some prefer to save the money and leave the studio as clean or cleaner to avoid this unnecessary charge.
Your responsibility will be to feel and act as a Parisian homeowner:
1.If you chose to save the cleaning charge of 120eu, at arrival after 2:00 pm make a mental note of how the studio looks like, so that on the day of departure you will leave it as clean or cleaner for the next guest who wants to enjoy this fabulous location. Check in is 2:00 pm (unless you need to drop your luggage but not before 11:00am) The clean linen will be dropped around 2:00 am. If you enter before 2:00pm and you found it untidy, it is probably because the previous guest called us at the last minute to pay 120eu for the cleaning, which will be done for you.
(website hidden) the dishes regularly and especially at the day of departure.
3.Bring down the garbage regularly, (located near the mail boxes) and especially on the last day, please take all the garbage downstairs with you.
4.Clean the fridge. If there are edible-left-over put them on the table (as a gift for our caretakers but please do not leave anything in the fridge).
5.You are a Parisian, and this is your home away from home, accordingly buy a lamp (bulb) if needed, paper-towels, bathroom-soaps and coffee filters as per your needs.
Who are our caretakers?
Our caretakers are doctoral students, top of their country to study in Paris, they speak many languages and they are the smartest you can find. In addition you will find them infinitely courteous and generous; please do not make any hotel-style-requests, our “Hotel-style-service” is about 200% more expensive, we are the owners of luxury larger apartments (visit our website) with all the amenities and service you desire but they are off-center. We are here to serve you and help create happy memories of Paris.
We pray you will feel and act as a Parisian homeowner and contribute to keep these studios operationally-self-sufficient. You chose us because we are affordable; the location is second to none and super-safe. Altough we cannot guarratee safety anywhere in the World, when all things are equal, the convergence of tourists in the streets offers a special blanket of extra safety, you will also be able to walk everywhere which saves you money and thus the location surpasses in savings, safety and beauty all other neighborhoods combined.
Claude & Violaine / your friendly owners.
My wife and I had a great stay at Violaine's apartment in Paris! We were right in the middle of all the action and found the apartment very comfortable, quaint and perfect for our stay. The noise from the street below wasn't bad with the windows closed and the one night we left them open due to the heat wave, we still had no trouble sleeping. The new mattress was fantastic and the historic decor was a lot of fun.
The apartment was photographed very well and does appear larger in pictures than in actuality but that said, it's perfect for 2 people who want to be in the heart of the city.
They encourage people to leave a few things behind and we left a guest book and some sun block - we hope to go back and find the book full and leave another entry.
Great location and great communication and information from our hosts. We enjoyed our stay. Thanks again!
Apartamento muy céntrico a menos de 5 minutos de Notre-Dame en un barrio lleno de bares, restaurantes, con muy buen ambiente. El apartamento es pequeño, con espacio suficiente, y muy bonito, luminoso y bien decorado (igual que en las fotos). Lo encontramos limpio y bien calentito (era invierno y al ser pequeño es muy práctico porque se calienta rapidísimo). Los huéspedes no solo respondieron a nuestras dudas sino que nos enviaron todo tipo de información adicional sobre París que fue muy útil para integrarnos más rápido en la ciudad.
All of the glowing reviews for this place are exactly right. The apartment is in a perfect location, minutes to Notre Dame, and in the heart of Paris. The apartment appeared exactly as the pictures showed and was extremely clean and inviting. Absolutely amazing experience and no complaints.
El anfitrion envió toda la informacion correcta y muy detallada.
No tuve ningun problema.
todo lo informado era cierto.
encontré todo muy limpio y ordenado
lo puedo recomendar
This is a great location - it can be a little loud at night, but you're amazingly close to the Seine and Notre Dame. The studio was comfortable and had everything you could need.
