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 two flights of stairs (there is no elevator) 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

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.

Nice apartment in a great area

  • 4 of 5

Clean and everything was as promised. Only complaints were that agent wasn't in apartment as expected and lights in hallway were out making for a very dark entry. Had to wait 15 - 20 minutes in hallway waiting for agent and cost us an international call. Strangers in hall made for uncomfortable residents coming and going.

Great location in St Germain

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this cozy and clean studio apartment. We were met at the flat by Jaymes who explained how everything worked. Also received a welcome bottle of wine! The kitchen is very well- equipped for doing some cooking "at home". Great shower and comfortable murphy bed. WiFi worked well. Very close to Odeon Metro stop and a short walk to the Seine. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of 5 is it was a bit noisy at night but we would stay there again. The door lock was a challenge as well. We highly recommend getting a Navigo travel card (you need a photo) if you are planning on using public transportation. It more than paid for itself with our ride to Versailles and Roland Garros as well as a few trips on the Metro. We also got the Museum Pass, which was a good value if you plan on visiting several museums and Versailles.

Rue Dauphine

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at this apartment twice now and enjoyed it both times. The location is perfect; within easy walking distance of Notte Dame and the Louvre. The adjoining Rue Buci is bustling with restaurants, bakeries and markets. The apartment is quite quiet given the vibrant location. There are three flights of stairs to the apartment. It is well equipped to cook and we appreciated the washing machine/dryer. The apartment was clean. Both times I've stayed at the apartment I've been met at the apartment by a friendly English-speaking greeter who has made sure we were comfortably settled. This is very important when you arrive jet lagged from the USA. Highly recommended.

Great spot in the heart of it all!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Paris 5 times now and each time I fall more in love with staying in St. Germain Des Pres.

Location - FANTASTIC! This place is in the heart of it all at the corner of Rue Dauphine and Rue De Buci. Everything is near by: grocery store restaurants, bus, metros. It is less than a 10 minute walk to Notre Dame, 15 minute walk to the Louvre. My kids (12 and 11) felt completely comfortable walking everywhere. We even walked to the Eiffel tower from here in just over 30 minutes.

Hospitality - Instructions were crystal clear and they do a great job communicating with you. Ben was there to greet us right away. He spent a lot of time going through everything with us. I think almost too much to be honest, but I think it was better then none at all. We were EXHAUSTED when we got there and I think that the 30 minute overview of the apartment could have been cut short. That being said, he was SO friendly and gave us some good tips that we may have never received if he only spent 10 minutes reviewing things with us.

Accommodations - Although very tight for a family of four, I felt it was great. The beds were okay (not the best), but they were clean. The only recommendation I would say is that we had a soiled comforter (stains and mascara stains on it) that was not too appealing and we ended up finding another one in the cabinet and switching it out. I hope they just throw that old one away! The amenities were just what you needed: full kitchen, dishwasher, fridge, washer and dryer... Although the dryer doesn't really work so we hung dried our clothes. (not a big deal). Nothing I would really change about the place except maybe a quieter bathroom and shower door.. It seemed to wake up my family every time :)

Thanks for the great hospitality and we miss Paris already!
