Located in a peaceful residential street in the heart of the traditional Latin Quarter, this apartment is close to all that Paris has to offer.
The Latin Quarter is primarily known for its vibrant nightlife and is itself a city within a city. The area has an amazing history and this street was once home to Rene Descartes - renowned for his Cartesian philosophy. More recently the Latin Quarter has been home to the filming of the latest Woody Allen movie, 'Midnight in Paris' and the street ends in lively Place de Contrescarpe & Mouffetard area, where you will find traditional boulangeries and bistros, bookshops and boutiques.
In the opposite direction the Mouffetard area intellectuals and academia (from Sorbonne and Polytechnique) mix with tourists with a glass of wine and a discussion or two.
Most of the streets in the Latin Quarter are named after intellectuals, philosophers, scientists and educational personalities of history and heritage. The apartment was right out of the movie "An American in Paris" right down to the pigeons cooing in the eaves outside the widows.
Here you'll have a room and a folding bed in the living roon . Allow to accommodate 3 persons in this Cosy apartment . There is a double bed and a wardrobe in the room also You will receive the keys, blankets, towels, sheets and what ever you need for a comfortable stay.
The apartment is very practical with a bathroom and the kitchen, where you can use anything you want, especially the washing-machine and coffee machine. I also share my free Wifi access and FREE phone calls to Australia and USA home line. (Land line Only)
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
The apartment was lovely and perfect for our three-person group that stayed. Alvin was an excellent host, and we are so grateful to him for accommodating us so graciously. Thank you for everything, Alvin!
Bellissima esperienza! La casa è deliziosa e Alvin è molto disponibile e attento.. Vi farà sentire come a casa vostra! Bellissimo anche il quartiere molto elegante, ben frequentato e non troppo caotico!
In casa c'è tutto ciò di cui si può aver bisogno.. Sia il bagno che la cucina sono forniti ottimamente.
Grazie ancora Alvin
Alvin included very detailed instructions on getting to the flat from the airpot- super helpful! There were instructions throughout the apartment (how to use TV, heating, washing machine), and he also left cookies and water to get us started, along with tips on where to find food and restaurants. The apartment was as described in the posting. We were very happy to have found this apartment- it was in a great location with a great host.
Alvin was a kind and helpful host. The apartment is small, but very nice and quite comfortable for two people. The location could not be better: it is in a vibrant and interesting neighborhood, but the apartment itself is very quiet.
Comme Alvin a oublié de nous donner tous il faut pour entrer son appartement (la clé,le code )en plus il n'était ni là ni nous rappelait nous étions obligé d'être dehors avec notre enfant -10 mois -pendant longtemps et de le rappeler en plusieurs fois. Aussi 4ème étage sans ascenseur était assez dur pour nous. L'appartement était sympa mais le fou dans la cuisine n'était pas très propre. Dommage!
Je tiens à vous informer que je recevais les gens depuis 2010 dans mon appartement (plus de 300 invités) et tous d'entre eux recevaient dans l'email de confirmation de réservation toutes les instructions pour accéder à l'appartement, cet email de confirmation contient entre autres les codes d'entrée et le code de la boite de clé, je confirme qu'aucun de mes invités n'avait de problème pour accéder à l'appart. En l'occurrence, vous le seul problème c'est que vous n'avez pas bien lu l'email et maintenant je ne comprends pas pourquoi vous laissez une réclamation, C'est dommage!!!
This is a fabulous pied-à-terre! Alvin was always prompt and organized in his responses. He was willing to work with us on our arrival and departure times: very helpful. We really appreciated the cookies and the coffee maker heated and ready to go!
The apartment is exactly as pictured, very charming interior. The bed is so very comfortable, and the pull-down bed in the living room is more comfortable than most. The bedding for both is of high quality. The coffee machine takes Nespresso sized pods, so you can bring your own or easily pick some up at the nearby Carrefour or Franprix. Otherwise, there are a few to get you started, at 1 Euro each. There are also a few bottles of wine, at 12 Euros each.
Be ready of course for the 4th floor walk-up. There are also quite a few stairs at the nearest metro entrance/exit, and at the foot of the pedestrian street where the building is located. But hey...all those stairs mean you can have an extra croissant or deux. :)
Apt was easy to find, well-located and had everything we needed. It's a great area to stay in, very close to the metro and loads of cafes and restaurants nearby. The apt was perfect for the two of us, full of character, cosy and well-equipped.
