Lovely Loft Saint-Germain des Pres

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Rue De Babylone, Paris, Ile-de-France 75007, France

The Space

A very nice apartment that was completely renovated in May 2013 in one of the most fancy' places in Paris.

The apartment is located on the ground floor of a traditional Parisian building in a charming patio.

In the latin district of Paris and in front of the famous "Bon Marche" you will enjoy walking around for some shopping, having lunch in a "Brasserie" or taking a nap in the "Parc du Luxembourg" 3 minutes away.

The districts of Saint Germain, Odeon and Saint Michel are 2 minutes away by foot!

The neighborhood is one of the most fancy in Paris. It is a very good mix of stores, restaurants, bars and clubs. You will enjoy the arquitecture and above all the real "Parisian living style".

Right across the street, there are 2 metro lines (lines 10 & 12) and a dozen bus lines. You will be able to travel very easily all around Paris.

But do not forget : the best way to visit Paris is by bike! The city provides you "Velib" (our rental bike program in Paris) to move all around the city. There are Velib stations all around Paris and it is really cheap!

You will enjoy your stay!

  • The apartment was fantastic and a perfect choice for our stay in Paris. It's just as pictured in the photos - location is right off the Sevres-Babylone metro stop and there are great shops & restaurants within walking distance. We arrived into Paris late at night and Benoit arranged for us to be able to get the key easily and without hassle. He immediately responded to all questions and it's obvious he has a personal interest in making sure you have a great stay. Recommending this one to all my friends - such a great experience!

    Couple items to note:
    - The apartment is on the ground floor of the building on a courtyard that others walk through to get to lifts and their own offices/apartments. It's quite charming and well kept with plants, etc. just don't expect a city view from the apartment itself.
    - For visitors who are extremely sensitive to noise, be aware that the metro line is very close and as a result you can faintly hear the trains at night. This was not a nuisance to us.

  • All of the reviews are true - this is a lovely place to stay in Paris! My friend and I stayed at the apartment for three nights and found it to be just as perfect as all of the reviews stated. The neighborhood is beautiful, safe and nicely located to the metro. Plan on recommending to all of my friends that are visiting Paris!

  • Great apartment, great location. The lady who met us was really nice, but did not speak any English. There is a bunch of good restaurants(Japanese and coutume right down the street). On Sundays there is a food market on rue du raspail. 5 min run from jardin du Luxembourg. Everything is close by within 15 mins of walk, except sacre cour which you can take the metro to. Great first experience in Paris! Will be back

  • This was my first AirBnB experience. Initial communication was very smooth and Benoit answered quickly to the emails and confirmed my booking. The person was waiting to give me the keys as planned and after a bit bumpy start because prior people left later than planned, Benoit fixed everything and I could check in as planned.
    The place is nice and well maintained and the location is fabulous, a few minutes walk from Bon Marche and its great Epicerie. I also found some amenities which was welcome given that I am used to hotels and did not know if I could expect towels, hair dryer...
    Overall a very good experience which I will certainly renew!

  • Benoit's flat was fabulous.....very clean, tidy and welcoming. The 'loft style' decor was gorgeous and both beds were very comfortable. Lots of clothing space and room to relax. The kitchen was very well-equipped and breakfast bar was perfect. In case this is not enough, the shower was sensational!!! Location is ideal being next to the metro and right by a Taxi rank plus it was lovely and quiet (often rare in Parisian apartments!). Bon Marche is a minute's walk......need I go on? This apartment was faultless - merci Benoit! Lucy

  • After arriving in Paris for the first time we couldn't believe how lucky we were to be staying in such a beautifully located and well furnished apartment. As we stepped out from our taxi the building caretaker was already upon us offering help and directing us to our door. She was very friendly and helpful and afterwards not remotely intrusive. The apartment itself is ideal for parties of 2 or 3 and all areas clean, well decorated and very cosy. Thank you Benoit, we hope to return someday!
