The apartment was beautiful and just as described and pictured. It had everything we needed as well as some great books and reading materials to get acquainted with Paris and read up on the arts. I can't stress enough how wonderful this location is. You're walking distance to some of the best areas and are truly in the "center of town". The bed is a double and was pretty comfortable, the bathrooms and shower are modern and spacious. We hit some incredibly hot weather so it would have been nice to have air conditioning but most airbnb in the area do not so I can't fault the apartment for being too warm in July. We had a wonderful time and really appreciate the host for being so accommodating with our check in since the Eurostar was delayed due to electrical problems on the tracks.
The apartment is perfect for a couple. We really liked the comfortable bed and couch. Unlike other parisian apartments we have stayed in, the shower was unexpectedly large and luxurious. The apartment is very well appointed with a dishwasher, washer dryer and wifi. Our host Vinicius met us on time and gave us all of the information necessary to work the wifi, lights and was overall a lovely welcome to the city. We loved the location of the apartment as well. Ile St. Louis is a great central neighborhood with easy access to lots of different neighborhoods. The apartment is kitty corner from the Jeu de Pomme hotel for reference. Thank you Vinicius for a great stay!
This place was really great! The design of the apartment along with the amazing location made for the perfect weekend in Paris. What I loved most about the apartment was the staircase and the concert violinist neighbor that seemed to be playing for hours on end each day - it did a lot to add to the ambiance of the apartment. Kitchen was well-equipped for the little amount of cooking/heating that I did and there were small stores steps away from the place where I got groceries, fresh bread, etc. Thanks for a great stay!
WOW! We just returned from our first trip to Paris and it was amazing. We cannot say enough great things about this flat! Location, furnishings, open layout, charm, cozy, romantic, ......
Thanks for letting us use your flat and we look forward to a day when we can return.

Beautiful apartment in a great location with all the amenities of home (if your home is a 5-star hotel inside of an historic Parisian building!). The best part about the location is that you get to know the neighborhood and the winemonger, the cheese guy, and most important the boulangerie. Our liaison, Leandro, was very welcoming and quick to respond to our queries. In fact, he was able to accommodate us for two extra days when our flight was canceled. Highly recommend.
My husband and I just stayed in this beautiful apartment for a week and it was absolutely perfect for us. We were met by Leandro when we arrived and he showed us around and explained everything we'd need to know during our stay. The apartment was a great size for 2 people, compact but not tiny, and had every comfort you could need.
My only complaint was that it was a bit too cold inside for my liking (but I am Australian and not at all used to a French winter!) - I would have been more comfortable if the apartment could have been heated a little warmer. That said, the bed was very warm so we were nice and cosy at night.
The apartment is up 3 flights of stairs, a crazy little circular stairway that was a bit hard to navigate with our bags but not a huge issue.. it may be tougher for older guests though.
Having a washing machine was a big plus for us, it's great to be able to wash clothes as you go rather than having to do it all when you get home. There were a couple of English news channels which was great, and music channels that alternated between English and French language music.
L'Ile Saint-Louis is centrally located and an easy walk from Le Marais and Saint-Germain - there was lots of shopping and eating options close by. We didn't bother with the metro at all - we were able to walk most places and only got a cab a couple of times (they are a lot cheaper than Aussie cabs!). Notre Dame is just on the next island and you can hear the bells chiming from inside the apartment, pretty surreal.
One of the most famous/best ice-creameries in Paris (or the world!) is right outside the front the door, and there are also bakeries, patisseries, cheese and meat stores right on the street. All food groups were covered!
All in all we had an excellent stay - Paris is such a beautiful city, every corner you turn offers breath taking scenery.. I really hope we'll be back soon and wouldn't hesitate to stay in this apartment again.
What a wonderful experience all round. Our four night stay in Ile Saint Louis was ideal thanks to Vinicius & Eduardo's beautiful modern apartment in an old building. Just as the pictures show only better with the atmosphere that you soak in as soon as you arrive.. A true Parisian lifestyle, just as we imagined. Mariane met us and was very professional yet friendly. She went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable with everything in and around the apartment. Even gave us tips on where to find the best ice cream! It's well serviced, clean with everything you need, yet uncluttered.
We'd definitely love to come back.
