The Space

All of Paris at your command from this light, airy, spacious apartment (670 sq.ft /62m2)on the top floor (with elevator) of a pleasant 1930s building on a quiet street just one minute from the Bir Hakeim (Eiffel Tower) metro station (line 6). The bedroom sleeps 1 or 2 people, with accommodation for a third person in a study with comfortable sofa bed. The apartment has windows on both sides, so you get sunlight all day long. There is a large living/dining area and fully equipped kitchen.

It’s just a short stroll to the Eiffel Tower, the Seine,the Bateaux Mouches and the spectacular Quai Branly Museum. Metro and bus routes get you in minutes to the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, Montmartre, the Marais, and all the key sites in Paris. From the neighbouring RER station it's a direct, short ride to the Invalides, the Orsay Museum, the Latin Quarter and Notre Dame cathedral, or the outlying Château de Versailles in just 30 minutes.
This is a safe, pleasant neighbourhood, with restaurants, cafés, food stores, a huge twice-weekly open-air market and the famous Poilâne bakery almost next door.

Minimum stay is 3 nights, or one week in May/June/july/August. Breakfast fare provided, TV in bedroom, wireless Internet access.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • From our first contact with the apartment owner, Judith Harris, to the day we left Paris, Judith made herself available to us to help us enjoy our visit. During the planning of our trip, she responded to all of our questions about Paris and transportation to her apartment. She greeted us at the door and made us feel like her personally invited guests. She had prepared a booklet of information and spent time with us covering details about the apartment, lists of her favorite places to eat near her apartment and her recommendations for places to go in Paris. Additionally, she had a library of books and maps of Paris for our use and she even provided us with her cell phone number and email in case we needed to contact her for any reason.

    This apartment was perfect for us. It was ideally located just two blocks to the Metro and 3 blocks to the Eiffel tower. The apartment was nicely furnished and the kitchen provided us the opportunity to prepare our breakfasts and occasional late night dinners. The bedding was very comfortable and was made up with freshly ironed sheets. Judith was the perfect hostess who had given a lot of thought to making us feel at home.

    We highly recommend this apartment choice.

  • What a fantastic apartment! Our stay at Judith's apartment was my first experience using Air Bnb. I was impressed and delighted by the flawless professionalism throughout the entire process.

    Judith was an incredible host, who made sure our stay was welcoming and well planned. She stocked the fridge and has plenty of guidebooks on hand, which was a real asset during our stay.

    The apartment is gorgeous and incredibly centrally located. It made it easy to get around and enjoy the city.

    I can't recommend this stay enough. If you are lucky enough to get to stay at Judith's getaway in The City of Lights, I know you will have a wonderful time!

  • Judith is a very friendly and generous host. She went out of her way to look after us and helped to make our stay in Paris that much more enjoyable. The apartment is true to it's description, comfortable, spacious and extremely well located. Everything you could need is provided and you're within easy walking distance to the Eiffel Tower, Rue Cler markets, shops, cafés and metro.
    Highly recommended and would happily stay there again.

  • This is our 2nd stay at Judith's apartment. I hope it will not be the last. Paris is my favorite European city and this apartment my favorite place to stay. Great location, great hostess.
    Could not be happier!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Judith's apartment! It was neat and clean. There were lots of guides for Paris, maps, and recommendations for restaurants in the neighborhood. It is walking distance from many great little restaurants on rue de l'Exposition and that area. Judith also has interesting books and some good music. You will enjoy yourself in this location.
    We walked a lot and that is the best way to see Paris. Bring comfortable shoes! The metro is also very close by!
    The kitchen has everything that you might need for your stay. Judith had left beverages and fruit, bread and crackers, eggs, etc. It was great to have all that upon our arrival.
    On Friday and Saturday night some kids across the street had a party, so bring earplugs if you come for the weekend and you have trouble sleeping. I have never stayed in a place in Paris where there was no noise at all. This is actually a very quiet street for such a big city! Also the bedroom is on the courtyard side, which is perfect!
    Remember to check out the Eiffel Tower in the evening when it is all lit up and sparkling on the hour for a few minutes.

  • The apartment was exactly as Judith's post and the positive reviews describe, and Judith was just as friendly and helpful in person as she had been in our emails before arriving.
    The apartment is clean, comfortable and has everything we needed for our stay. And it was thankfully warm for our unseasonably cold Spring week. Both of the beds were comfortable and well furnished.
    The location is very safe and well connected - with public transport and shops/restaurants.
    We could not have been happier with our stay.

  • The Eiffel Tower as your neighbour was a wonderful place to stay. It was close to many of Paris's main attractions and the metro was only 200 metres down the street. Judith was a most accommodating and gracious host. She had the kitchen well stocked for us, so much so that we didn't need to buy much more the week we were there. My wife had a medical issue arise while we were there and Judith came by and organised the doctor to visit through SOS Medicins and by that afternoon my wifes problem had been sorted by the doctor and it only cost us 230 Euro which we can claim back on insurance. The only problem we had was with the lift breaking down and being 7 floors up with my wife's leg injury it was very difficult getting up all the stairs to the apartment. one phone call to Judith and she was onto it straight away. It was a public holiday but the lift was working again the next morning. Judith also organised taxis for us on several occasions which saved us time and money. They were spot on time evry time. Outstanding Judith! I would recommend this apartment to everyone without hesitation.

  • Everything about this lovely apartment is perfect. The location is wonderful with shopping, bakeries, restaurants, and the Metro all just minutes a way.
    Judith is so helpful! She left a refrigerator full of breakfast things and a spotless apartment for us. She even called for a taxi to the airport for us.
    I can't imagine a better place to stay in Paris.
