Get location. Close to so many excellent shop and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the quaintness of the apartment. My son liked sleeping in the loft, although it is a little cozy. The lift made a big difference when returning from a long day of shopping and sightseeing. The only complaint is the washer/dryer, which we could not get to dry at all after downloading the instructions on the internet.

Close to metro line right across the bridge and we shopped on the street for our groceries and pastries. We would stay there again when returning to Paris.

Great location, wonderful street!

  • 4 of 5

In the midst of the Ile St. Louis on a quiet street, this was a wonderful point of departure for any Paris destination. The interior -- very "snug" despite what the photographs would imply -- was very clean, simply furnished and equipped with a small washing machine and dishwasher. A two-burner electric stove plate, microwave oven, and basic kitchen appliances made simple meal preparation possible. A bakery, a pastry shop, a butcher, cheese shop and charcuterie were within steps of the front door and were all of top quality. The loft secondary sleeping area would require an agile visitor.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

After looking at many listings, I knew this one was perfect for my daughter and me because it was located in the absolute heart of Paris. We got to the apartment easily by taxi from Roissey airport, and Valentin met us there early. He was great in showing us the apartment and gave some great suggestions for the area. We were within walking distance of EVERYTHING!! So close to Notre Dame, Ste. Chapelle, the Louvre, etc. We took an Uber to the Eiffel tower because we were tired from traveling, but it was close enough to walk if you are ambitious.

The apartment was furnished nicely and was a great size for the 2 of us, and would have been fine if my husband and son were with us, too. There was a nice loft and the master bed was so soft and comfortable.

Bathroom was small, but fine. No issues with the appliances we used. We didn't cook because we were in PARIS and my goodness....go out and eat. There are so many great cafes and restaurants within a block of this beautiful apartment. Every place we tried was delicious and nice. The bakery down around the corner was wonderful.

This was an incredibly quiet apartment, even being in the heart of the city. Very little traffic. We also felt incredibly safe here, even though we were two women traveling alone. We walked at night and felt very safe on the isle, and all around Paris.

This apartment and our time in Paris was perfect. I can't imagine another place (especially not a hotel) being as good for the price. Bon Voyage!

Saint Louis 1 was more than comfortable, it was a home away from home. The apartment was very clean when we arrived.Kitchen had coffee and filters, electric hot water pot for my tea,spices, plastic bags, dishwasher and laundry detergent,and much more. We google searched the apartments washer/dryer and found the instructions ,so it was quite simple to run the machine. It would be helpful if the owner had simple and quick written instructions for the washer/dryer and microwave.(simple fix) One bedroom, large enough to walk around the bed.It may be small but the mattress is extremely comfortable with shelves next to the bed to hold your various articles.The bathroom is quite small, but the shower had great water pressure and lots of hot water. So what more could a tired body need. The elevator is a great plus, but you do have to walk up about 6-7 steps to get to the apartment. But Thanks to Valentin, we didn't have to worry about our suitcases, because he was kind enough to carry them for us...our knees appreciated him greatly.(thanks Valentin).. at the street level you have your bakery, so you can feast on croissants to quiche, to sandwiches. YUM..couple doors down is the Nicholas (wine store), a small grocery store that has a little of everything is less than a block. You also can get fresh cheese to Foie gras all within a block or two of this lovely apartment. Notre Dame is a very short walk, we were able to attend a concert which was mesmerizing. We would love to stay in this wonderful apartment again. Thank you very much for sharing your home with us

Elegant and wonderfully located

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed in this charming and beautifully furnished apartment. Although it is small, we managed well. Our favorite aspect is the excellent location on an island in the Seine - everything we wanted to see was an easy and beautiful walk from the apartment or an easy Metro ride away.

It's the neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

Eight days gave us time to not only enjoy our neighborhood, but the opportunity to "know" the men at the green grocer's, the boulangerie, the wine store, and even the pharmacist! We will always call it "Our Nest" for that is what it the morning we usually just dallied over coffee and a fresh baguette, and in the evenings we listened as "our neighborhood" gradually settled for the evening.

"Charming" doesn't do it justice, thought it is that. We loved every minute! We ate our way up and down " rue St. Louis en I'le" and highly recommend the St. Regis Brasserie, the two Breton crepes cafes toward Notre Dame, Sorza, and MOST HIGHLY OF ALL "L'ilot Vache" less than 2 blocks toward La Rive Droite. That was our very best meal of all time! ( And we are experienced European eaters!)

Ala was our initial contact, and Valentin after that. Each get 5 *****.

My only request: a written explanation in English of how one uses the combination washer & dryer, water & dryer heat selecting, etc. The appliance remains a total and complete mystery though we did somehow manage to wash & dry (sort of) 1 LONG pair of blue jeans by some act of God! The tiny dishwasher is the perfect size! We never used the ceramic cooktop (too many wonderful restaurants), and the coffee maker and the microwave were "standard issue." The WONDERFUL LIFT/ELEVATOR made this location so easy for my husband, and we are very grateful for that!

Do use the Frebreeze/fabric spray on the carpet in the lift each day; it makes it smell fresh!

Thank you Daniel, et Valentin for your lovely location! Best regards!
