(You can also walk through the Marco Polo Gardens until you reach Rue Michelet, and turn left.)
Almost 150 metres down Saint Michel, you will see a gasoline station. Turn left into Rue Michelet. Walk another 200 metres and you will find the building number 5. The door code is 3476. On the intercom, press the down arrow until you see the name GASPARI. (I am the sixth name on the list.) I am on the 6th floor. When you exit the elevator, turn right, and look for the brown door.

Maria give us a nice welcome, everything was well prepared, sheets, towels, tourist info, everything cleaned and some space made for our personal stuff. She explained how to find things in the neighborhood.
The appartment was clean but some things in the house have had their best time... couch for instance and seats of the chairs, but as long as they keep covered everything looks and works fine.
Mainly because the state of the couch I recomment to stay in this appartment with max two people. We brought a foldable childrens bed and that worked out fine. Still enough space to move around.
The wall's and floor seems to be very thick, no neighbour sounds or feeling that neighbours could hear anything. (Nice when you bring a small child.)
One remark on the building, the elevator is really small, a pushcar will only fit wen folded up.
So appartment is just fine, reasonably priced. The location thou is really perfect: very near to the park Luxembourg (walking, sporting, play field) and subway. It's a nice walk to Notre Dame or Louvre.
We enjoyed the stay very much; thanks Maria for sharing, taking care and being flexible.
I am happy to report that Maria now has a shower curtain. (So many other guests mentioned this, we paid her to fit one – it wasn’t very expensive.)
There is much to like about this apartment. It is very quiet, the location is brilliant, and the bed is very comfortable and clean. We also enjoyed using the espresso machine, which made delicious coffee. Security is good -- it has two doors, both with an entry code, and there is a (very small) elevator.
The only disappointment was in the furniture and fittings in the lounge. The sofa was torn and stained, though it had a cover to hide this. The chair seats were also torn (also hidden with scarves to cover them). There were no fantastic pictures on the wall as we saw in the photographs – just the marks on the wall. This was really disappointing since the apartment looked so good in the photographs. It is nowhere near that condition now.
That said, Maria was friendly and she very generously allowed us to stay until 1pm on the day we were leaving. She also arranged to have the flat cleaned during our stay. (Thank you.)
Finally, we were pleased to find that the nearest metro is on a direct line (RER B) from the airport, at Port Royal. That’s a real bonus for anyone coming from the airport.
Our host was lovely she gave us all the information we required and made sure we knew what to do. It is in a fabulous location walking distance to everything we didn't need to take a taxi or the underground. The only problem that I had was the sofa bed. We were three girls on a long weekend trip and I was staying on the sofa bed. The sofa was ripped and stained, it really needs to be replaced if people are staying in it and the bathroom has no shower curtain which with three girls can make a very bad mess! If the sofa bed was replaced and their was a shower curtain I would definitely highly recommend to friends.
Maria met us at the flat when we got there and was very friendly and welcoming. She gave us a tour, made sure we had everything we needed, and then handed over the keys and let us have the place to ourselves. She told us she would be available if we needed her for anything while we were in Paris. Due to a delay in our schedule, we returned to the flat later than planned on the last day and she had to wait outside for us to return with the keys, but she was very understanding about this. The flat is perfect for two people. It was easy to get to from the airport, right next to Luxembourg Gardens, and a 25 minute walk from Notre Dame. I'd definitely recommend it!
Apartment was nice enough, clean, and in a good location. Photos do not accurately represent the apartment's current condition.
Notre séjour a été très agréable, Maria nous a accueilli très chaleureusement, son appartement est nickel.
