AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

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 was.....in 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!

Perfect for our two days in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately we only made time for two days in Paris. This apartment was perfectly located. Easy access to Metro (St Paul) and to all the popular sites in the city. Our family of four (12&15) walked EVERYWHERE except for taking the fabulous Metro back to apartment one late night (midnight) from the Concorde Place (ferris wheel). While we spent very little time in the apartment, it had all the amenities one would need for any period of time. We were met by the owners son who was very sweet, polite and informative. The apartment was excellent and well decorated. Overlooked the lovely narrow Rue St Louis. (Main Street). Our boys especially loved the loft. It was steps away from delicious breakfast spots, creperie, and Berthillon ice cream. And just ten minutes walking takes you over the various bridges to Notre Dame, Marais and Latin Quarter. We even walked to the Gare Du Lyon both ways with our luggage. Really could not have had a better location in a perfectly parisian apartment. Highly recommend!

Wonderful experience as always

  • 4 of 5

This is the 3rd time we have stayed in the apt and/or the adjacent apartment on the same floor. We love the atmosphere & wonderful resturants on I'l Saint t Louis. It is my favorite experience to get up in the morning & walk to one of the bakeries on the island for fresh Baguetes.

There is a meat market, grocery, wine shop & cheese shop, so you don't even have to go out to find all the ingredients for a nice dinner, after a day of sigh seeing. It is ideal for a couple

It is close to shopping and the major museums.

I recommend the apt with out reservation.

Bon, bien contente.

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement - la meilleure adresse- on peut se promener partout, a quelques pas de Notre-Dame. Toutes sortes de services le long de la rue, soit la boucherie, boulangerie, creperie, pharmacie, marche/epicerie et un fleuriste. J'espere y revenir en septembre,2017.
