We're watching the euro get weaker by the moment and for those traveling based on U.S., Australian or Canadian dollars, this is a godsend. The euro is at an 11-year low against the dollar and is marked as one of the most dramatic periods in the history of currency trading. We’re seeing a real comeback by tourists whose greenbacks will get them a whole lot further on European soil.
We are located in the sought after Latin Quarter/St. Germain arrondissement, one of Paris's most prime locations near shopping, restaurants, museums and monuments.
Welcome to Paris Latin Quarters, a family townhouse run by Robert Reuter in the heart of the Latin Quarter. Here you will find us, perched on the slopes of St. Genevieve where the Pantheon dominates the hilltop and the bustle of cafe life and academia of the Sorbonne has thrived for centuries.
Decorated in contemporary period complimented with modern amenities and equipped with all the appliances you will need. You'll be received in a manner to make you feel as if you are a part of the city. This two room apartment measures 520 sq. feet, or 48 sq. meters. The AirBnB listing doesn't give ample space to describe the two sleeping area's. One Queen size bed in the bedroom and one twin Empire Sleigh be in the living room. Although listed as a two bedroom, there are two rooms in addition to the kitchen, entry and bathroom.
High Speed Internet access and wireless ready. Free international phone calls to the US and US cell phones, Canada and 90 other countries including the EU. Cable television with over a dozen language channels, English language channels include CNN, CNBC, BBC, Bloomberg and more. All linens, bath towels, washing machine/dryer, oven with ceramic halogen burners, dish washer, fridge, CD/stereo, shower, hair dryer, iron & board and phone with answering machine included.
Travel deals should be abundant throughout the year, and likely late into 2015. A competitive travel market is a boon for travelers, so take advantage of the weaker Euro while you can! As Paris is the most visited city in the world the 2% downturn in travel might just make your visit a little less crowded and a little more personal.
With 13 years experience in accommodating travelers to the best vacations of their lives, I look forward to making your upcoming trip comfortable and memorable.
Kind regards, Robert
There is an interphone/camera at the front door of the townhouse. When you arrive, ring the buzzer and I will come down to greet you and bring your luggage upstairs.
Interaction with Guests
I live on-site and am able to assist you with your day-to-day activities or provide suggestions for any wishes you may have in visiting Paris.
Directly downstairs in the building is an organic grocer where you can find everything from fresh fruits and vegetables, milk and eggs, bread and scones to a large selection of teas, juices, elixirs and home remedies.
Across the street is a Mediterranean restaurant (see my online guestbook) called Le Risale. With home made soups and salads, fresh pasta or vegetarian dishes to full hardy meals. Diagonally across the street is a late night grocer for that sweet tooth snack after midnight. Our block is lined with a wholesome baker, homeopath pharmacy, French Deli and Italian Deli. Walk a block further and you will find a fish market on Tues. & Fri, butcher, cheese store, wine store and chocolate shop. Not to mention the variety of French specialty shops with the old fashioned painted glass storefronts that have become historic treasures to be preserved.
One block away in front of the Luxembourg station is the Hotel Luco which serves a full breakfast as well as Sunday brunch and meals all day long.
Conveniently located just one and one half blocks from the Luxembourg RER B Metro station, which serves as a direct link to/from both Charles de Gaulle and Orly Sud airports as well as Gare du Nord train station where the EuroStar arrives from London.
Guest book provided on site for full function of the apartment.
These apartments have a complete smoking ban. No Smoking allowed in the apartment or common areas, not even with the windows open!
Smoking guests are asked to step outside the building and smoke on the sidewalk or stroll the neighborhood if they care to smoke.
Breaking smoking rules will result in a forfeit of the security deposit to perform a disinfection procedure (not just Febreez) to remove nicotine and 3-ethynylpyridine (3EP) carcinogens from the surfaces and fabrics of the entire apartment. We try to provide a clean environment to protect non-smoking guests from exposure to tobacco smoke and tobacco-specific carcinogens.
The apartment was exactly as pictured - very charming. Small of course (this is Paris) but fine for four of us and lots of natural light. Neighbourhood was superb - Solques Bruno is a small artisanal bakery just around the corner which you must try. Location can't be beat - close to the "sites" but also to the more interesting bits of the market and lots of wonderful shops. Have you guessed - we did come for the food. Our only disappointment was that the oven did not work while we were there. For many, this will not be an issue, but we had planned to market and cook for most of our dinners (we had already dined out exclusively the week before) and it made finishing the pigeon a bit of a challenge. So if that is your plan, please have Robert, the amiable host of the apartment, check it first. Its a rather ingenious device - combo stove top, small oven and dishwasher (actually, the thought of it sort of freaks me out) but it didn't function properly during our visit. Robert has indicated he corrected that.
What else - super comfy beds, clean bathroom with decent water pressure, quiet street, friendly neighbours. Robert takes good care of the place, provides lots of info, and makes himself available should any issues arise. Absolutely recommend it.
Staying at Robert's apartment was a lovely experience, from start to finish. The location is central, exceedingly easy to get to from the metro and in a quiet neighborhood in the Latin quarter. The apartment itself was beautiful and had everything we needed.
I cannot say enough about how great a host Robert was. From the initial communication until we checked out, he went above and beyond to ensure that we could find the apartment, and take advantage of all that the neighborhood had to offer. Thanks again!
What a wonderful first Airbnb experience. Though we didn't meet Robert, Peter was so helpful and welcoming. Everything was as described, and it was in a great location. The apartment was everything we thought it would be. We are left with some very special memories. Thank you.
Cette semaine passée dans l'appartement Sorbonne de Robert Reuter a été très agréable : aide au port des bagages, accueil chaleureux, possibilité de laisser les bagages jusqu'en fin de journée dans l'appartement le dernier jour (cette flexibilité est très appréciable), informations pratiques fournies (plans, adresses des restaurants ayant un bon rapport qualité-prix). L'appartement est très bien situé, à proximité quasi-immédiate de la station de RER Luxembourg et de nombreux commerces (excellent boulanger, alimentation générale, pharmacie, excellent restaurant turc juste en face ...). De par la situation de cet appartement, il est également possible de rejoindre à pied des sites de visite intéressants si l'on n'aime pas trop passer de temps dans les transports en commun (Panthéon, Institut du Monde Arabe, jardin du Luxembourg ...).
Robert was a terrific host! He spent time explaining the neighborhood and suggested some great restaurants. The apartment was clean and charming. The neighborhood was quiet, safe, close to the metro and within walking distance of several attractions. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely return!
Robert was really a great host! He was really supportive and keen to welcome us in his apartment, which is really charming and adorable and is situated in a very nice and vibrant area of Paris. I would strongly recommend to anyone who's planning to visit Paris to stay at Robert's
Robert was truly helpful. The apartment and the location exceeded our expectations. It was perfect for a stay to visit Paris. Thank you Robert!
