Beautiful 2 bed apartment overlooking rue de Buci in the heart of St Germaine
The property has a nice large balcony overlooking the pedestrian market street of rue Buci ('pronounced boo-see'). At 75 m2 (@800 ft2) this rental can easily accommodate up to 4 adults and a child sleeping on the living room sofa. This holiday rental apartment was recently renovated from top to bottom and everything is new as of August 2010. It has a very open feeling, with several of the windows opening out to the front terrace and overlooking the buildings around the St. Germain area, with lots of blue sky view!
You will be square in the middle of this lovely and bustling rue Buci market street with all its cafes, flower shops, several bakeries, specialty cheese shops and butchers, and plenty of non-stop restaurants. Odeon metro stop on line #10 is a short 2-minute walk and a bit further is St. Michel for several more transport stops including direct RER lines to airports. And of course, St. Michel is so popular and central, from which you can pop over to the 2 river islands and visit the St. Chappell 15th century church or of course, Notre Dame. So many places to see and such a comfortable to call your home base!
You will only have to carry up your luggage the first time of course, or assistance can be prearranged if you wish, as this property is on the 5th European floor with no lift – European 5th means five flights up with no elevator. The stairs are wide and not too steep, and we are sure you will be happy to return each day to your spacious and wonderful apartment to relax and enjoy it!
Each bedroom comfortably accommodates two adults. The master bedroom in this Paris holiday accommodation has a queen size bed. The second bedroom has two single twin size beds -one of the single pulls out from under the other and may be pushed close together, but because they are slightly different in height, they cannot be combined. The living room has a large sofa, not a pullout, which would be comfortable for a child up to about 8 years old – sheets, a pillow, and blanket will be provided. There are some children’s decorations and items in the flat that belong to the owners.
This Paris property has two bathrooms, one ensuite in the second bedroom that has a WC, sink, and large walk in shower. The second bathroom is independent and accessed from the living room and has the same setup as first bathroom and in addition, it has a rainfall type of shower head. Each bedroom and bathroom are of generous size.
The kitchen in this Paris holiday rental is large and open to the living/dining area. The dining room table seats five people comfortably, and there is a high bar style counter with three bar stools that separates the kitchen from the living/dining area. There is everything you need in the kitchen to do some serious cooking, or just reheat any items purchased from the delicatessen below!

When we arrived, the property manager was there to meet and orientate us to the apartment. The apartment is clean, spacious, and very comfortable for four people. The walk up several flights of stairs was no problem for our family. We enjoyed the view and the safety aspect from the higher floor.
The dry cycle on the washer/dryer machine did not function however the spin cycle worked well and the apartment provides a drying rack. The kitchen is well provisioned and clean.
We recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the centre where you can easily walk to all the sites, shops and metro.
I really enjoyed our stay in this apartment in Paris, it was exactly what I wanted, the right size for us, we were 5 people, very comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need for cooking, two bathrooms working perfectly, good view, the location, I love St Germain by the way, I was prepared for the noise! The Guy in charged of it, Simon was very responsible, kind and helpful. I would recommend it Thank you! carolina nunez
Great location! Paris at its best.
If you don't like ambience, heart of the party and awesome night life, book a room in a hotel.
Location perfect apartment poor
5 flights of 18 steep steps-exhausting
1 wine glass in apartment- Surely not in Paris
2nd toilet did not work
Air conditioning - was a portable that required keeping windows open to remove exhaust hot air. Place uncomfortably hot
stay away u can do better
To address a few of this guests comments:
-the apartment listing clearly indicates it is a 5th floor walk up.
- the second toilet does in fact work fine. However the plumbing is narrow so guests are asked to not flush anything other than TP. There is a special note in the on-site instruction on how to operate the toilet.
- one of the overhead showers was leaking, which has been replaced. There are 2 showers in the apartment and the other works fine.
- the a/c unit offered is typical of rentals in Paris. Strict regulations limit the options for a/c, its usuage and installation. It will cool the apartment but may not stand up to a heat wave such as occurred during this clients time there.
Great location but be prepared for A LOT of noise.
Our location was great. We didn't mind the climb of five flights of stairs as we were prepared for it. David who greeted us was very good. He answered all our questions and was very thorough. There was no info package at the home which he said he was working on. It had disappeared with the previous vacationers.
The problem was the noise from the street and the people upstairs. They entertained all night, wearing high heels on a wood floor and dragging chairs across the floor. We wrote them a note the first night but it continued through the second night.
The smell of chinese food in the stairwell and back court yard was a little much.
The unit itself was clean, had comfortable beds and provided the basics.
A lovely stay..
The apt was spotless, comfortable and very well appointed. Rue De Buci is centrally located and within walking distance of many important sites. My issues were with the difficulty in opening the apt. door with key provided and the second bathroom which, essentially, contained a none working toilet. Both should be corrected. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
