In a traditional Ile St Louis building (like this one, very few have lifts but the beautiful wooden and iron stairs is typical), the apartment is on the third floor above Monsieur Lefranc’s cremerie and Madame Martin’s boulangerie. The chimes of the church of Ile St Louis’s bells from can be heard from across the street through the 3 south facing windows.
Beautifully but simply decorated and furnished to highlight its traditional features, this renovated 30m2 studio has style and character. It consists of a large living room and a smart, well equipped, kitchen with breakfast counter and stools. A very high quality sofa bed provides the same comfort as a normal double bed. The modern bathroom has an excellent shower. If you want to work or just check your emails, there is a stylish console desk and afterwards you can flop in the cool, orange Fatboy (very large beanbag!).
Above all this apartment offers great value for money for it's standard of accommodation and brilliant location.

Ile St Louis is one of the most enchanting places to stay in Paris and Paris by numbers can tell you now that as soon as you arrive you will find it hard to resist staying local for the duration of your visit and living side by side with the 3,000 or so inhabitants of this unique island on the Seine. The island has a village feel about it and is delightfully unspoilt with it’s mixture of handsome 17th century architecture, narrow streets and magnificent views from its tree-lined quays and berges (banks) where you can picnic and watch the boats go by. Running lengthwise along the island is it’s main street, rue Saint Louis en l’Ile. It boasts a baroque church, refined boutiques and gift shops, old-fashioned bistros and brasseries, chocolate, ice cream, gourmet food and wine shops, a florist, bakeries, two amazing cheese shops and many little “salons de thés”. But of course here you are also at the geographical centre of Paris and from the island can walk, cycle the Velib, ride the Metro or hop on and off the Batobus on the Seine to reach all the city's landmarks. Begin your sightseeing with Notre Dame (Ile de la Cité is linked to Ile St Louis by pedestrian bridge) and your shopping with rue de Rivoli, both of which are just a 10 minute walk away. Walk for a little longer and you will reach Saint Chapelle, Bastille, the Pompidou Centre , the Louvre and the Tuileries Gardens. For night life just pop across the bridges from the island to the the Latin Quarter (south) and the Marais (north). RER B will take you direct from CDG and Orly airports to Notre Dame-Saint Michel and the island is serviced by three Metro stations: Pont Marie (line 7), St Paul (line 1) and Cité (line 4)...morecollapse

Everything we expected and more spacious ...
The apartment was great, everything we expected and more spacious than we thought it might be. The location was amazing and the sofa bed really comfortable and plenty big enough for my 191cm husband! The broken toilet seat was a bit of an issue but we managed as after long days walking around Paris, I would forget to ring the office. I would also mention that the instructions for the washing machine don't quite match the washing machine installed in the apartment. Thank God for Google! I will definitely recommend your apartment and Paris Apartments by Numbers to my friends and I will also post on Slow Travel which is where I read about the apartment initially. We will be returning to Paris in 2014 (we hope) and will certainly be booking through Paris Apartments by Numbers again!

We enjoyed our stay
We enjoyed our stay. The apt was as described (except no orange fat boy) large bathroom, great kitchen, bed was good for us. I am 6ft 3 in and it was comfortable especially with the quilt as the temp outside was cold. Nice windows that opened to the outside. Very secure building , felt safe. Nice neighbors told us where trash went, etc. Great location. Great wi fi. What could be improved? Well... there was no fat boy,so no additional place to sit, our check in person knew nothing about it, and I asked her to contact you about it, never heard from you, so I assume she did nothing. One tall lamp (by the window and TV) was broken at the base , unable to use it. The remotes had low or dead batteries as well as the clock, and the bathroom light over the sink had 1 bulb out, which we replaced. Owners might make a check of the apt and not rely on the housekeeping staff. Best regards Jim & Lynne.

We'd look forward to another stay
LOUIS02 is as it states, a great place to stay in the heart of Paris. It is compact but absolutely adequate for a couple, maybe even a couple with a baby! Just about everything promised is delivered in every way. A stay in Paris couldn’t be much easier. We recommend this apartment without hesitation. We’d look forward to another stay.

For "Position, Position" this ticks the box
We spent two weeks in your apartment on Ile St Louis and enjoyed the whole Parisian affair. If you are looking for “Position, Position ” then this apartment will tick the box. Minutes away by foot is Notre Dame. This apartment is central to all the sights and sound of Paris. Restaurants and cafes are abundant, we did not cook for the whole time in Paris! Shopping/shops are very colourful on L’Ile St. Louis. The apartment is well furnished and the sofa bed, extremely comfortable. A well presented apartment as displayed by a fresh coat of paint and tastefully decorated. Thanks to Carlos for re scheduling our request for an early check in time and Fabien for his warm email. I would welcome another stay at this apartment on future trips to Paris and have no hesitation to recommend it to friends and family.

We loved staying in an apartment on Ile St LouisGuest comment entered by owner
We loved staying in an apartment on Ile St Louis
We stayed in your apartment Louis02 recently. We really enjoyed our visit to Paris which was helped by the fact that we loved staying in an Apartment on Ile Saint Louis. Staying in Ile Saint-Louis you experience traditional Parisian Life which is very much removed from the ‘hustle and bustle’ of a capital city. Most of the Buildings seem to be occupied by Residents……even the local Primary School is just down the Street! Although the Apartment is located in a Period Building the Apartment itself is very modern, spacious and comfortable. We definitely hope to stay there again.

Second time to stay in one of your apartmentsGuest comment entered by owner
Second time to stay in one of your apartments
Second time to stay in one of your apartments, this time on Ile Saint-Louis in LOUIS02 (last time just down the street beside Notre Dame in NOTRE01). This really is a great place to stay while on a trip to Paris. Feels like a village on the Seine yet in the middle of Paris. Great restaurants, cafes and shops on the island yet walking distance to all the sights and train stations for sightseeing further afield. We saw all the usual sights during our stay and also the unusual ones you can only see by walking or cycling (on the velibs), plus we took a short train journey to see the beautiful Palace of Versailles. Spent six nights in total but could fill a month. Apartment itself is well equipped and looks out onto the local church and the quietish street which leads across the bridge to Notre Dame. Highly recommended.

You get to experience the life of a true Parisian
I spent most of June and July in LOUIS02 with a friend so we got to know it well – my favourite thing about it ? – its wonderful location. We were close to everything. A short walk would take us to Notre Dame, the Louvre, Musee d’Orsay, the Luxembourg Gardens and many other places. A main metro and RER station close by also allowed us to be at Montmartre in 20 minutes. The island is absolutely gorgeous and quaint. You feel like you are in your own little French village while in the centre of the most amazing capital in the world. You get to experience the life of a true Parisian when going to buy your baguette in Madame Martin’s bakery just below the apartment, or your cheese from the brothers in the fromagerie. The apartment itself is well furnished and everything has been laid out to make maximum use of the space. Although we were wary of the fact that the bed is actually a sofa bed, it was as comfortable as any proper bed I have slept in. The only things we had a problem with were the frying pan that was too large for the stove and so could not be used, and the wardrobe doors that wouldn’t close properly. However we notified the owner of this and he replaced the pan and sent someone in to fix the doors. You wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else other than in this apartment in this location – we will be booking with Parisbynumbers again.

About the owner: Bonjour tout le monde (hello everybody), Je m’appel (my name is) Liam (Guillaume en Francais) and I am the owner of this apartment we call LOUIS02. I am Irish and live with my family in Dublin, but my work takes us regularly to Paris and I love to immerse myself in the city’s daily life. Staying in a traditional apartment as opposed to a hotel, even for a short stay, has always enabled us to get the most from our visits to Paris. This encouraged us to buy several studios on the wonderful Ile St Louis. In my Blog for which i can send you a link, I share my own and my family's time and experiences in Paris to provide useful news and information for business and leisure travellers to the City of Lights. You can also consult Feedback provided by previous guests and, when you have stayed in one of our apartments, provide your own feedback either directly to the Blog or by contacting me. I look forward to doing my best to answer any of your questions about Paris and our apartments. A bientot (see you soon), Liam
Why the Owner Chose Paris Arrondissement 4:
2-person studio with timber beams, south facing French windows, minimalist decoration and furnishings and a smart kitchen corner. Great location, great price.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Wake up to the sound of the early morning church bells, stand at the French window looking across at the clock tower and realise you are on a little island in the Seine in the heart of Paris, then pop downstairs to Madame Martins' boulangerie for a baguette or croissant to have with your cafe ....
