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.

Be sure to scroll down the page and see our 360 degree interactive tour. Past the reviews and the location map and just below Manager Info. The interactive tour feels like you are there already!

A discrete wood door on the rue Dauphine lets you in the secure vestibule of our building. Walk up the stairs 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 location!

  • 4 of 5

Tastefully furnished, but could need some repair/renovation (the screens at the windows, the matress...). But we would rent it again for an other stay in Paris.

Great location to numerous eateries and a few blocks from Luxembourg Gardens

  • 5 of 5

Everything you needed to make you really feel like home

Appreciated the extra touches from soap provided for laundry to tea bags

As we spent little time in our room we didn't mind that it was compact

Certainly roomy enough for the two of us and extra Murphy bed if needed

Beds were super comfy too

No electrical outlet in bathroom

Just meant you needed to use the plug by the window -No big deal

Hair dryers were provided in addition to plenty of towels and soap

We would not hesitate to recommend or stay in this apt if we ever get to Paris again

Again the location is in the heart of the action

Loved that a grocery store was a block away and so a few mornings we made our own breakfast


Spices to oils all included

Thank you again

It was a perfect location. Quiet, comfortable beds, very clean. It is on the second floor with not elevator. I stayed with my teenage daughter and we felt very safe, could open the windows at night. Great shopping and restaurants a walking distance away. I would stay there again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This worked out great for our family of four. Twin murphy beds are great to save space and have enough sleeping space. Kitchen was a nice size and well stocked (even though we didn't cook in it). Perfect location for enjoying all that Paris has to offer. We loved the neighborhood and close proximity to many of the sights. Odeon metro station was convenient. Cozy and comfortable.

Relaxing Respite

  • 5 of 5

Staying in the Heart of St. Germain provided a relaxing respite from the pace of Paris. We appreciated the wonderful breezes that flowed through the apartment and the fabulous ceiling fans in the middle of the day when the air was still. The young man who gave us the keys was very helpful, ensuring we knew what all three keys were for and how to use them. When we returned the first evening and couldn't get the apartment door to open, he knew just what information would aid in turning the key just right. We later realized that one key was a much better fit and used that set of keys from then on. The versatility of chairs and tables in the unit and a fabulous shower also added to the comfort of our stay. We were surprised by the amount of noise at night, given that none of the windows open onto streets and if you have problems tuning out men cheering at a game or singing at full voice, this might not be your perfect fit. Luckily we adjusted fairly quickly. We took full advantage of being so close to Rue de Buci having gelato, buying pastries at Paul's, exploring the fresh produce market. Plus, it was fabulous this trip to be able to walk to Shakespeare and Company, one of our favorite English bookstores in the world. The kitchen is well appointed; the day the toaster shorted out the power, the letting agency was quickly helpful in remedying the problem.
