Located in the heart of bustling St. Germain des Prés (the “Latin Quarter”), this newly-renovated studio on Paris’s famous Left Bank is a paradise on the historic rue Dauphine. The rue Dauphine, named in honor of the future Louis XIII, was opened in 1607 following the construction of the Pont Neuf (the “new bridge”). Our studio is on the second story of a well-maintained 18th-century building. One look at a map and you will understand the attraction of staying in our centrally-located apartment.
A discrete wood door on the rue Dauphine lets you in the secure vestibule of our building. Walk up two flights of stairs (there is no elevator) to our open, airy studio. At 45 sq metres (450 sq ft), the apartment comfortably accommodates two adults with one or two children. 11 foot high ceilings with exposed original wood beams, and windows on either side of the apartment, provide great light and a sense of airy spaciousness.
The kitchen has granite counter tops, all new appliances (including washer/dryer and dishwasher), and is well equipped for those who like to cook. Cooking in Paris is a delight with the best markets (the Market at St. Germain is a visual and gourmet delight), wine shops, and an American-style grocery stores nearby.
Three individual Murphy beds that pull out of the walls are the great surprise in this studio. Don’t want to make up your bed in the morning? No problem! Just tuck it away and forget about it. The double bed has a firm mattress and feels comfortable to a 6’ tall person. The individual bunk beds also smartly fold up into the opposite wall. From the bottom bed a small table folds out which can be used for work or eating.
The new WC is separate from the bathroom. With a 100 litre water tank you will not run short of hot water in the spa-like bathroom which features a heated towel rail, granite counter top, and American-style shower which is high enough to accommodate a tall adult.
And yes, even in Paris one needs to relax at home, so the apartment is equipped with WiFi and a flat screen on which to watch cable television.

The rue Dauphine, named in honor of the future Louis XIII, was opened in 1607 following the construction of the Pont Neuf.
Saint-Germain represents the legendary Paris of cafes, jazz clubs, boutiques, bookstores, galleries, and museums. Literary and artistic walks abound in this neighbourhood associated with luminaries including Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Simone de Beauvoir.
Rue de Buci is only a block away and has everything from fruit and vegetable stands, gourmet food stores with tantalizing take-away, as well as wine and cheese shops. Eateries abound in this neighbourhood, from intimate bistros to elegantly appointed, Michelin-rated restaurants.
A stone's throw away are three favourite haunts of famous writers, the Cafe de Flore, Les Deux Magots, and Brasserie Lipp. Or perhaps you desire bread and pastries from some of the finest patisseries in Paris? Laduree and Paul are right nearby.
If you are an art lover the Louvre, the Muse d'Orsay, Notre Dame and Cluny, as well as many other museums are all within a fifteen minute walk. For walking or jogging the Tuileries Garden is located close by and you will never forget the lovely experience of seeing the Louvre and the Tuileries before visiting hours.
Conveniently located to public transportation, the apartment is just a couple of blocks from metro stops Odeon and Saint-Michel as well as numerous bus routes.

Great Flat on the Left Bank
Great Flat on the Left Bank
Large studio flat right in the heart of the left bank. Close to Ile de la Cite. Just two blocks from the Metro. Well maintained and great for a family of 4. Bakeries and restaurants conveniently located along with a Carrefour. Excellent agents to work with. Would definitely rent this again.

Great apartment, great location, somewhat noisy neighborhood

Everything about this property was as described in the rental listing - it's very comfortable, clean, well maintained and equipped. The rental agent that met me upon arrival was very helpful and had lots of great information about Paris and the surrounding neighborhood. My only issue with the property in an area with a lot of nightlife. At times the noise from the surrounding cafe's was quite loud and could be heard inside the apartment...even with the windows closed. If you're a light sleeper be warned.

We had a wonderful stay in the apartment at Rue Dauphine - the apartment is great, had all that we needed and the location was excellent. You can walk to many of the great sights, little shops, cafés, restaurants and a supermarket within 5 minutes walking distance, the area was great, exactly how you imagine Paris to be! We can very much recommend this apartment and will hopefully be visiting again.Jesper and claudia, Copenhagen, Denmark

We had a brilliant week at Dauphine. The facilites are fantastic, and the apartment has all you could possibly need and more. The location is perfect - major attractions are within walking distance; tourist buses and batobus stops are close by; shops, restaurants and bars and nearby and the lively atmosphere is a delight to come back to. The apartment, and the wider neighbourhood, feels safe and secure. We would definately use the apartment again if we were returnng to Paris; and would recommend it whole heartedly to our friends. Thank you!

My husband & I loved the place! It was the perfect location in Paris! The convenient bike rack around the corner (as well as the close by Metro stop & so many sites just walking distance away) made transportation so easy. The apartment itself was clean, quiet, & exactly all we needed for our trip. We would highly recommend the apartment & Paris Rental Connections to everyone!

Hello everyone!. We stayed in the apartment in Dauphine for one week with our children. The location was great and we felt very comfortable. The agent, Shelley, was very nice and efficient in her explanations. We would choose the same lodging for our future visits to this wonderful city.
