About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

After a hectic day of sightseeing, escape to your cozy Paris apartment tucked away on a quiet street off Rue St. Dominique. The apartment is located on the third floor, with an elevator, and is 31 square meters in size (approximately 330 square feet). Entrance into the building is by security code.

This bright and cheerful apartment is the perfect space for two people. It comes with a spacious separate bedroom, fully-equipped kitchen, air-conditioning, flat screen television and wireless internet access. Large double-paned windows in the bedroom and living area allow for plenty of light to stream into the apartment, while adding the quietness and privacy that welcomes you at the end of a busy day.

The bedroom is separated by a charming French door that leads into the living area. There is plenty of space to stretch out and settle in for a restful stay. The bedroom has a queen size bed complete with linens and a wardrobe to place your belongings in.

The living room with its cozy loveseat and armchair sets the tone for unwinding and reliving the day’s events.

Try out your French cooking skills in the well-fitted kitchenette: four-burner cooktop, combination convection oven and microwave, cookware and tableware.

The water closet (WC) or toilet and shower are combined in one compact, functional room with a generous supply of hot water. The apartment also has a combination washer and dryer for your convenience so pack light, and leave some room in your suitcase for souvenirs!

One of Paris’ famous landmarks is only a five-minute walk from your apartment. The Eiffel Tower will not disappoint in presenting you with a stunning panoramic view of The City of Light. Be sure to catch her in the evening hours when she twinkles and shines, on the hour, every hour until midnight.

The seventh district boasts some of the city's most beautiful monuments. It is home to Champ de Mars gardens and park - adjacent to the Eiffel Tower, Invalides (Napoleon’s tomb), Orsay Museum and Rodin Museum just to name a few. This area is very safe and ideal for couples and families.

Many other Paris attractions are within walking distance from this central location: Champs-Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, Place de la Concorde and the Louvre Museum. If you prefer to take the metro, the nearest stop (Ecole Militaire) is a 10-minute walk from the apartment. For sightseeing and travel above aground, discover the hidden gem of Bus 69 with a route that runs east-west across Paris and stops at many of the city's main visitor attractions. The bus stop is just around the corner from the apartment.

What would a visit to Paris be without sampling her exquisite cuisine? Just outside your door on Rue St. Dominique is an array of grocery shops, wine shops, bakeries and cafes; close by (about five-minute walk) is the well-known pedestrian shopping street of Rue Cler. Take your time and savour the freshness of local products. Stroll through the fruit and vegetable stalls. Visit the fish mongers, butcher shops, bakeries and the like. Of course there are also plenty of specialty stores, bistros and cafes to temp your taste buds.

There is so much to take in when you're on vacation, but don't worry; we provide you with a handy guide to help you navigate around the apartment, the neighborhood and many of the wonderful sites Paris has to offer.

Whether it’s your first time or your 50th time to Paris, you’ll find there is always something new to discover about this enchanting City of Light. Enjoy your stay!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at 7th Heaven. Used "bus 69" and it took us everywhere we wanted to go. The apartment is an ideal size for a couple and having an elevator is a big plus. Being a short walk to Rue Cler and the Eiffel Tower it is in a perfect location. Six restaurants, two pastisseries and a market within a block. The owner is very good to deal with and has always promptly returned our security deposit.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review, we are happy that you chose to stay with us again. The elevator does make a big difference, its much easier than climbing the stairs. We think that the location is great, everything you need is nearby and the street is pretty quiet. We are happy that our service is good, we try to treat people the way that we would like to be treated. I hope we can host you again.

Great Stay at 7th Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We picked 7th Heaven because of the reviews and the fact that my wife had been in Paris previously staying in the same area and knew the apartment was well located. That is actually an understatement because I think it would be hard to find a better location to stay. The Metro and bus stops were very handy but after a couple of days we figured out how central we were and that it was fun to just walk to and from a lot of places . It is obviously very close to the Eiffel Tower, Les Invalides, Napolean's tomb, the Seine and the Army Museum but when we took the On and Off bus around and ended up at the Arc de Triump, we just decided to walk home and it was really fun walking down the Champ's de Eyless and then cutting off on Avenue Montaigne which was full of really high dollar shops that were fun to see even if we didn't go in.

The apartment is located on a very quiet street with some nice small restaurants and shops and just half a block either way to Rue St. Dominique or Rue de Grenelle which are both loaded with shops, bakeries and restaurants. The elevator was great because we were traveling in Europe for a month, over packed (as usual) and had purchased two additional suitcases in Europe to hold purchases. It was SO much more convenient to use the elevator than lugging the suitcases up staircases which happened in other European places we stayed.

The apartment also has to be one of the safest places to be in Paris. The security setup, with a pass code to open the front door, then a key fob to open the next door leading to the elevator , and the secure door and locks for the apartment would reassure anybody.

As other reviews have mentioned, the owner has prepared a book with instructions, guides, maps, suggestions ....and all sorts of other helpful information that we repeatedly used and kept remarking to each other how helpful it was. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and having a separate bedroom from the living room/kitchen area was nice. I would not hesitate to stay at 7th Heaven in the future or recommend it to others.

We returned to 7th Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of September, 2014 in Paris staying in this apartment. When we decided to return to Paris in 2016, we did not even look at other apartments. We just checked the availability of 7th Heaven, found it available, and reserved it for the month of September. That should firmly state our recommendation of this apartment for an enjoyable base for a time spent in Paris.

Carefully read the description of what this apartment offers. The description is accurate. The neighborhood is safe and centrally located for visiting anywhere in the city. Some sights, like the Eiffel Tower, are easily within walking distance. Bus stops are very near the apartment and the nearest metro station is only a 10-15 minute walk. We used the metro almost exclusively by mapping out our destination route before leaving the apartment and then simply following our notes to the correct metro lines and connections. For longer stays like ours, a pass card will be most convenient and save money. The apartment provides a manual with a section on public transportation, which can be very helpful.

We loved the fresh air breeze we could get in the apartment by opening windows in the front bedroom and the kitchen at the back. Having a separate bedroom was very helpful to us because I am an early riser and my wife likes to sleep in a little longer. I could be up enjoying the free wifi and drinking French press coffee while not disturbing her extra sleep. Also, the old, creaky and very reliable elevator to this third floor apartment came to be an integral part of the ambiance.

The apartment is on a vibrant neighborhood street with several restaurants and shops with apartments on the floors above. On the north and south ends of this short street are busier streets, Grenelle and St. Dominique, where you will find more restaurants, boulangeries, wine and cheese shops, ATMs, small grocers and fruit/veggie markets. Pretty much all you might need is close-by.

If you should have any problem with the apartment or questions not addressed in the apartment manual, the owner, J. C., is very responsive and accommodating. You can rely on that.

Lifetime memories are available. This apartment can help you discover some of your own.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We are glad that you found our website descriptions accurate, it is important to us to properly describe what our guests would be receiving. This accuracy can help prevent issues down the road. We also enjoy opening the windows and getting the cross breeze which can be helpful since the stone building seem to retain heat. The apartment is in a vibrant but safe area and as you mentioned, there are lots of shops and restaurants nearby. This was one of the features that attracted us to the area. We will keep working on our apartment manual, we try to refresh it each time we come to visit. Again, thank you for your kind words, we hope we can host you again in the future.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is so centrally located we were able to walk everywhere. What a surprise to walk for a block and see the Eiffel Tower! The kitchen was such a joy, being able to prepare our own meals was great and having a fridge was super. The bedroom is large and the bed so comfortable. Really, what more could you ask for. We highly recommend the apartment for your vacation in Paris.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review, we are glad you enjoyed the apartment. There is nothing like walking out the door and five minutes later be standing near the Eiffel Tower. Its a great place to go for a picnic and watch the lights twinkle at night. We have tried to ensure that the kitchen has everything that you need to prepare meals so we are glad that you enjoyed that feature. We hope we can host you again in the future.

Paris Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Paris and J.C.'s apartment definitely met our requirements. The Metro and bus were just a few blocks away and it was convenient to wherever we needed to go. Markets, delicatessen, boulangerie, and fromagerie were right down the street. Being budget travelers, we didn't eat out every night but didn't want to cook. However, with all these places close by, we were able to quickly put together wonderful local meals and dined at the apartment which was well equipped. When we did eat out, there were popular restaurants across from the apartment and a block away. It was nice to have a separate bedroom. The shower was a bit small but we got used to it. Overall the apartment was very comfortable. Merci J.C.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. We are glad that you found the kitchen adequately stocked in order to cook your own meals. There are lots of good restaurants in the neighborhood, many within a couple of blocks of the apartment. The shower is a little small but unfortunately, this is what happens when you retrofit a building from the 1880s.

Seventh Heaven in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this quaint Paris apartment in a vibrant neighborhood. Situated in a historic building we especially appreciated the lift. It is safe, clean, well provisioned and with a comfortable bed. The apartment is In close proximity to grocery stores ( several to choose from) all transportation, train, busses and Metro. The lovely Seine is also a stroll away, not to mention tour Eifle. An added bonus is the apartment guide featuring transportation schedules, restaurants, sightseeing options and really much more. The owner and apartment manager were refreshingly pleasant and responsive. The shower is a challenge but as said it is a historic building. I would recommend to friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy that you enjoyed the apartment and found things to be comfortable. We also appreciate the mention of the guide book. We have worked hard to try to keep it informative and relevant so that it can be as beneficial to guests as possible. The shower is a bit of a challenge due to the step up and smaller size but with the building being built in the 1880s, modern amenities are squeezed in where they can. We are happy that you recognized that. Thank you for your recommendation and we hope we can host you again in the future.
