About this listing
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.
No Smoking ! No Party !
We LOVED staying at Alvin's place in Paris. The location was perfect, the streets around have so many bars and restaurants, but the flat is still so quiet and homey. The flat itself was amazing and the cookies Alvin left made us feel so welcome! We loved being by the metro stop and having so much within walking distance. And we loved all the guide books and extra plugs Alvin provided. We had more than we needed! Would love to stay here again and highly recommend it! The stairs are a little steep, but totally worth the climb :)
Fantastic location and apartment had everything you could want. Metro 2 min away and great restaurants around the corner. Alvin was extremely helpful and accommodating. Definitely would recommend and go back.
Alvin was so helpful and welcoming considering this was such a last minute reservation. He was extremely responsive & helpful with making sure we arrived safely. It's located perfectly close to the pantheon. It's so lovely with heat and everything you could possibly need for a nice stay in a fantastically sized Parisian abode.
Charming little apartment in a nice area in Paris. Very close to the metro. Host went above and beyond to help us from check in to checkout. Has everything you need to be comfortable. Only one thing to know.. for older people.. there are lots of stairs to climb to get to the place..so beware.
The cozy place was exactly as described. Awesome location. Clear instructions. Alvin followed up to make sure everything was working out. We had a great visit. Highly recommend it.
El departamento nos resulto muy bien, tiene lo necesario para pasar una linda estadía. Recibimos perfectas instrucciones de Alvin para su uso. Si bien sabiamos que teniamos que subir 4 pisos por escaleras, esto no es lo ideal si tienes mucho equipaje. La zona ideal, cerca del Metro, lugares para almorzar o cenar muy lindos.
The listing description was absolutely accurate. The apartment was clean and had very nice linens. The kitchen, though small, was well stocked with all the necessities. And being right next door to the Jardin du Plantes was delightful!
