About this listing

Care to live in the past for a few days? Instead of just visiting museums, why not stay in one? This garret for 1 or 2 is five hundred years old. Walls are 2 feet of stone. It is remarkably quiet for Paris and guests love the extra-long Ikea bed.

Awaken to the sounds of the bells of Notre Dame. This is the only B&B in Paris where you can.

Taken just steps from my door. Living just across from Notre Dame, getting views of the Great Lady and good photos is assured. And you awaken every day to the bells of Notre Dame... (if you sleep till noon.)

Response from Shayne:

The Garret has stone walls almost two feet thick so it's one of the coolest buildings in Paris during a heat wave. It also has a great fan. Unfortunately for Bob and his wife they decided to stay in Paris the hottest night of the year... the outdoor temp hit 37 centigrade (around 100 fahrenheit) during the day and stayed hot most of the night. People all over the city were uncomfortable that night, and almost all of them were probably warmer and more uncomfortable than Bob and his wife in the relatively cool oasis which is the Garret for 2. (Air conditioning in Paris is virtually non-existent in hotels which cost less than 300 euros a night, and not always available even in hotels above that price.) Too bad the heat kept them awake and kept them from enjoying the remarkably good sleep which most guests experience (and comment on) when staying in this room on Sacred Ground.

The reviewer gives a false impression concerning cleanliness since in fact the Garret for two is rather a clean place, scrubbed and scoured thoroughly by an assiduous cleaning man who visits quite frequently. However since it is around 500 years old, the Garret's bathroom is never going to look as spotlessly clean as the ones in the Holiday Inn and people who judge a place by how brightly the plumbing sparkles may be a little disappointed here. The Garret is more Bohemia than it is Mayo Clinic.
