Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Located in the very heart of the Latin Quarter Area, this 2 bedrooms, 65m² elegant apartment was just fully refurbished. It is of high quality, has 6 large windows with views over the Latin Quarter, a traditional wooden floor and a nice traditional chimney. Decoration is a nice quality. The apt is in an Haussmannian building, 4th floor. Stairs are wide and carpeted. It offers a rare combination of advantages:

• A perfect location: In the heart of the Latin Quarter, close to Notre dame cathedral, Sorbonne University and the trendy Saint Germain district (metro Saint Michel 1mn). It cannot be more central.

• The apartment offers 2 bedrooms and can be used for up to 6 guests.

• The overall quality of the apt is very high. Large windows bathe living room and bedrooms with light. The wooden floor gives a feeling of warmth.

The entrance opens on the living room, the 1st bedroom and a corridor that leads to the bathroom and kitchen. It is wide and offers a large closet for clothes on the left side.

The living room area has a nice view on the old haussmannian buildings of the vicinity. It is bathed in light by 2 windows and offers a flat TV, a table for 6 for dinners, and a comfortable convertible sofa bed for 2.

Both bedrooms are also bathed in light by windows. The 1st bedroom offers a comfortable queen size bed and the 2nd Bedroom offers 2 single beds which can be put alongside to use them as a double bed. The 2nd bedroom is connected to the bathroom, equipped with bathtub with shower. The bathroom as a 2nd door that connect to the corridor to access form the 1st bedroom. Toilets are separate but inside the apartment.

The Kitchen is fully equipped with microwave oven, refrigerator, stoves and dish washer. A window gives view on the quiet private courtyard.

To be noted, the hot water system is an instantaneous heating system which ensures quantity of hot water is never limited. This is not the case in many Parisian apts when the system is based on an electric tank.

As a bonus, Phone calls to land lines in France, and to US, Canada and Australia are generally free. It is also true for more than 50 countries. Moreover, calls to cell phones towards specific countries (often US & Canada) may also be free. Ask us for detail as it may vary with time and policies of operators.

This location is a perfect base to visit Paris. It stays 15 minute by subway to most interesting Paris locations AND is a very charming and restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums.

Hello Jnoel,



We had such a wonderful time and the apartment was beautiful.

I appreciate the good communication, and the apartment was exactly what we expected and wanted. Thank you so much for everything. Next time we visit Paris I will be sure to call you. Have a great day.

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

The leasing company was very easy to deal with and the check in process was logical and easy. The location of the apartment was fantastic - right in the heart of the Latin quarter with tons of restaurants all around and easy access to the sites. You will need to bring your own soap and shampoo which we anticipated. Plenty of towels and comfy sheets and pillows. The kitchen was stocked with all you need to cook and there is a grocery store around the corner. The only downsides were that the washer/dryer did not really work or was simply impossible to understand. It is also noteworthy that the apartment does not have AC and since it was very hot in Paris in July 2017 we had to leave the windows open which meant it was very noisy and hard to sleep. The noise level was low with the windows closed. I think this would probably be the case for most apartments in Paris and the location was worth the noise. We enjoyed the stay and it was a fair price for an older "vintage" unit.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Ample space for the six of us. No troubles with the four flights of stairs. Comfortable beds. Creaky floors but it adds to the experience. We really enjoyed the location to many dining choices as well as the metro.

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer, Thanks for your very kind review! Glad to hear you found there was ample space for 6 and the beds to be comfortable. Floors are nearly always creaky in old Parisian buildings, it is part of the charm. The location is indeed great and very. Hope to host you again In Paris! Sincerely, Jean

Location! Value! Service!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is as advertised, and my mom, sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4-night stay here. Follow the precise check-in/out instructions and you'll have no problem. The rooms are a bit smaller than the photos make them appear, but are still plenty large - especially the quiet main bedroom which faces an interior courtyard. The second bedroom (with either two single beds or the beds combined into one large bed) faces the street, is noisier, and seems a bit smaller. The layout is funky - the kitchen and living areas are a hallway apart - but it certainly worked well for us. Beds are a bit low and soft, and bring your own washcloth if you care about that. The water pressure was fine, though hot water wasn't overly abundant...just be quick about your shower. You want to be out in the city anyway!

The location, on St Severin, is spectacular for those wanting to be on the Left Bank near Notre Dame and just a short walk from the Louvre. The St. Michel metro is very nearby, making access from either airport super easy. Lots of to-go food right outside the door, along with cafes, a small supermarket a block away, and a wine shop.

Though there is street noise into the second bedroom, you'll sleep like a baby if you wear earplugs and an eyemask (the curtains are not room darkening).

Merci, Jean-Noel. This was perfect for our stay - highly recommend for two couples or a family with kids. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The Severin apartment has an excellent location and Old World charm. It is in a perfect location within easy walk of Notre Dame and the Metro. The apartment is small by US standards but typical of Paris and given the location an excellent value. The apartment was clean and well appointed. Be prepared to walk up 80 steps on a small staircase (part of the charm). Our only regret was the water heater went out during our stay. We were offered another apartment but as it was near the end of our stay we chose to remain in place. These things happen while traveling and we just heated water on the stove and made do. Traveling is an adventure.

Owner's Response: Hi Mike, Thanks for your kind review and nice to know you found the apartment to be clean, well appointed and in a perfect location. It is effectively hard to be more central! The heater has been repaired since your stay, sorry for that unexpected annoyance. Hope to host you again in Paris!

Well located flat.

  • 3 of 5

The strengths were the central location, you can access the metro and so many sights very easily. The beds are comfortable, the apartment was well cleaned and had clear access instructions. The building, including the apartment, is quite old, and while off the main road, it's quite loud street on the street in the evenings. There is one toilet in a separate space from the bathroom area. Water pressure in the shower is poor. There are many stairs to access the apartment (80+) so be prepared for the climb.

Great stay in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay at Apt Severin! The stairs were not an issue.

The apartment was clean, the kitchen served us well. The living area was the perfect place to make plans in the morning and review our day at night.

The restaurant people were very friendly. We especially enjoyed the food and service at the closest one right under our window! We ended every evening at Petit Pont bar, watching the nightlife.

We loved having the metro right around the corner and used it daily.

Oh! And our deposit was returned in less than two days!

We would definitely stay there again!
