Center Paris at Latin Quarter

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Rue Rollin, Paris, Île-de-France 75005, France

The Space

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.

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)

  • Our stay at Alvin's place in Paris was more than comfortable! The place is just as pictured on the photos. Alvin's hospitality was welcoming. We are uni students and one of us arrived almost at midnight and Alvin kindly answered her phone calls at that time and guided her. He welcomed us with a jar of cookies and a bottle of water which were really appreciated. The place is small but well located to nice restaurants and some landmarks like Notre Dame cathedral. The building is quite old and has a lot of stairs. Perhaps that can be a something to consider if you're traveling with a lot of luggage. Overall, the place is good and my first Airbnb experience was way better than expected. I would definitely stay at Alvin's place again and use Airbnb in the future.

  • My friends and I had the best experience in Paris and Alvin's apartment was the perfect place for us to stay. It is right by a metro station, and there are so many cute shops + delicious restaurants right around the corner. After exploring the city, it solidified my decision even more that the 5th arrondissement where Alvin's apartment is is one of the best places to stay. Very Bohemian! Alvin is a wonderful host who is flexible with your needs. My friends and I got there a little early and needed to drop our luggage off so we didn't have to carry it around town, and Alvin was more than happy to let us drop our bags off early. We were so thankful. Thank you again Alvin for allowing us to stay in your apartment. It made our Paris trip complete! Katie, Tiffany, and Li

  • A comfortable apartment in a great location, Alvin's instructions and information were spot on. We were prepared for the 4 flights of stairs which were not as bad as we had anticipated. Both my Mum and I had comfortable nights sleep in the bedroom and also on the pull down bed in the lounge. Everything you could need is in the apartment, from the Nespresso coffee machine to steam iron. Lots of guide books and useful information are available for you to read on the table. We found the area to be conveniently located with plenty of bars and restaurants close by. We would thoroughly recommend a walk down Rue Mouffetard for fabulous food and wine shops. Aptly described by Hemmingway in 'A moveable feast' Being on the top floor be prepared for a few feathered friends as your neighbors - this was the only noise we heard all weekend. Would recommend Alvin's apartment to other visitors to Paris. Our top tip would be to take a stroll through Jardin des Plantes and have mint tea outside in the mosque cafe.

  • Чудесная уютная просторная квартира в центре Парижа! Мы останавливались на 8 дней. В квартире есть все необходимое, Alvin был всегда на связи и был готов нам помочь. Найти квартиру было достаточно просто, хозяин дал четкие и понятные указания. В шаговой доступности много магазинчиков, рядом также небольшая площадь с барами и ресторанами, очень милое и оживленное место. Мы остались очень довольны нашим проживанием!

  • The apartment is comfortable and cozy in a perfect location in central Paris. Easy access to the Metro and a short walk to any number of shops, restaurants etc. Quite and safe, the only thing that may be a challenge for some is the eight flights of steps (4th floor walkup) to the apartment. Really best for two people as you'll need to keep your suitcase in the sitting room. Real bed in the bedroom was comfortable for two.

    Alvin was a great host. He provided plenty of information and provided all the information we needed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable and affordable place to stay in the heart of Paris. Thanks Alvin.

  • We felt so lucky having chosen Alvin's lovely apartment for a 3 night stay. My first Airbnb experience. Alvin was the perfect host to us and everything - from the large tea mugs to the dragonfly doorknobs - pleased us. It felt like a home from home, well furnished & decorated in warm colours, great lighting, good shower & kitchen, very comfortable chairs and bed and around the corner, passing by an apartment where Ernest Hemingway lived, is the most perfect little cafe-filled square - what more can I say apart from that we would love to stay here again!

  • Alvin's appartment was the perfect choice to experience Paris lifestyle. The appartment is cosy, clean, and perfectly located in the middle of the vivid Latin quartier. You can either take your coffee in the kitchen of the appartment or just walk around the corner to rue Mouffetard and pick one of a bunch of nice cafes! This road is really great and you will find nice brasseries as well as grocerys, wine shops, crepe places, patisseries, etc. Infrastructure could not be better, the metro is three minutes away or if you decide to take a bike, the next velib station is close as well...
    Absolutely recommendable!
    Unfortunately we had not the chance to get to know Alvin in person, appartment access is organized independantly. Nevertheless Alvin was reacting promptly on email requests in case we had a question.

  • We had a wonderful stay - such a cute apartment with everything you could need and really easy to find with Alvin's instructions. A fanatic location with two metro stops and lots of yummy restaurants and bars just round the corner. Our favourite was a Vietnamese restaurant called Saigon-Pantheon. I would highly recommend staying here!

  • Alvin's place was clean, cozy, stylishly decorated, perfectly equipped, and ideally located. Check-in and check-out were extremely easy, and he even let us leave our bags for the afternoon, which was extremely helpful. Thanks to the efficient use of space, three adults (including two very pregnant women) stayed very comfortably in this apartment. Directions to the apartment were accurate and tips he left about where to go/ what to do were right on. This is the perfect location for a walkable weekend in Paris, and I will definitely try to stay at Alvin's place next time I'm in the city.
