About the property

One Bedroom - Sleeps 5 - Cozy & Comfortable!

What a great area for museum lovers! This is a bright and cheerful apartment is just minutes walk to both Musee D'Orsay and the Louvre!

On the 3rd European floor (4th US) with an elevator, this 33 m2 (about 350 ft2) Paris vacation apartment features high ceilings, numerous windows, an open kitchen plan and a mezzanine that many youngsters will delight in! This property can sleep up to four adults and a child with 2 guests on double size bed in bedroom, 2 guests on a double sofa pull out bed in living room and a child or young adult in the mezzanine sleeping area that is accessed by a ladder ( not suitable for adults).

The apartment faces out to a quiet courtyard area with a pleasant amount of trees and greenery to soften the cityscape.

You are almost directly behind the world’s most famous Impressionist’s Museum… the d’Orsay will take no more than 5 minutes to walk to, and just cross over the river to the Louvre, only 10 minutes walk!. You have many wonderful shops and restaurants around, plus a leisurely walk to all of St. Germain. In fact, just about everything is a comfortable walking distance from this apartment - The River Seine only 4 minutes, the island Ile de la Cite is about 6 minutes, Blvd. St. Germain about 5 minutes, and since you are in between the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame, each of these is only a 15-20 min walk away. Location, Location, Location!

The kitchen is open and small, but with good counter space. It provides all you need for light cooking or re-heating with a stove top, microwave oven/grill combo, coffeemaker and kettle. Plenty of dishes for all. The bathroom has a good size shower, sink and the WC. The bedroom is large with a small desk at the side of the bed, and has 2 windows. The living room has a double size pull out sofa bed. Please take careful note of the picture of the upper mezzanine crawl space: while it has a large double size mattress, it is not meant for everyone. The access is via a sturdy wooden ladder, hook-on type, and it does have a wooden railing for protection, along most of the length of it. However, the access space to crawl in and out is reduced and only measures about 2 feet - we recommend from 7 to a max of 17 years old. Likewise, younger children must be carefully supervised when using this area. Do note there is an extra fee if this mezzanine bed option is requested.

Enjoy this wonderful quiet & calm apartment, in a great neighborhood with all you need in easy strolling distance. We are sure you will return time and again!

Guestbook comments from the owner

A beautiful apt. in an excellent location. We walked everwhere. Neighborhood very safe and lots of great bistros. Right down the street from the d'Orsay and a block away from the Seine. We loved it all.

Cute, Quiet, Comfortable Enough

  • 4 of 5

This flat was comfortable enough. We are a family of 4 and it was ok for us, slightly tight, but we managed. It has one bedroom with a queen size bed, a sofa bed, and a mezzanine bed in a crawl space which one cannot stand straight up. The mezzanine is good for a teen but very hard for an adult to climb into it. There is one very small bathroom. The kitchen was very small with hardly any counter space as there were too many unnecessary appliances. There is no AC so be sure you are there when its not too hot! The windows open up and there are fans so we were very comfortable. The location of the flat is in a very quiet area but the main road is just a few minutes by foot. Its is very close to the Museum Orsay and pretty close to the Louvre. The closest mini market we could find was a 15 min walk so if you plan to cook, plan ahead. Some amenities are that it is furnished with the necessary items to cook and eat, has a washing machine (no dryer) and has a hairdryer. This is a self catered flat so toiletries are not provided. They do give a few rolls of toilet paper and whatever else previous owners have left, but the rest is on you. It was comfortable enough for a few days but may be a little tight for an extend stay or for more than 3-4 adults.

Excellent location in the heart of Paris

  • 4 of 5

The place is small, but more than adequate for two people. Check in was very well handled by a woman who is apparently an ex-pat American. It's remarkably quiet since you are literally one block from the Seine, but in a very upscale and safe neighborhood. There are good, reasonably priced restaurants less than a five minute walk away, as well as a Monoprix grocery store and an Erik Kayser boulangerie. It's a ten minute walk to the Louvre, the Orsay or the closest metro stop. The place could stand a coat of paint, some updates in the bathroom, and new furniture in the living room, which is the only reason I knocked a star off. But, the bed was comfortable, and you don't go to Paris to hang out in an apartment. I would definitely stay here again.

nice location but smaller than expected.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment itself is bigger than a hotel room but smaller than what it looks like in pictures. It is well equipped and clean but the beds need new matresses. Very close to the sights in Paris. Not very "romantic". Ie. No nice views. The elevator is the smallest ive seen in my life. Only 2 ppl can fit w 1 bag only. Im Asian-American....go figure. I may come back though.

Wonderful apartment in Paris

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent days in this wonderful Paris apartment. It has an excellent location to explore the very best of Paris (on the same road as Musee D'Orsay, a street away from the Seine, exactly opposite the Louvre) , yet very quiet and peaceful. The apartment was beautifully furnished and decorated, appointed with all we needed for our stay.

We appreciated the seamless and very professional process from booking the apartment through to our to our friendly greeting and personal orientation to the apartment.

Sincere thanks for a perfect stay in beautiful Paris!

Good value; Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Pleasure to work with the staff who let this flat - good communication and fast, informative responses. The apartment was good value for money though there were a few issues. A couple of the pillows were

abysmal - they really should be replaced. Also, a couple of the towels had prior stains on them and should also be replaced - preferably with upgraded material as well. A couple of nights were warm and we left windows open when we went to bed but the noise from other tenets in the building made it hard to get to sleep before 11PM. Also, a dish drainer or some place to put washed dishes to dry would be nice. On the plus side, the bottle of wine on

arrival was a nice touch; our daughter loved sleeping in the loft area; the bed and sofa bed were both comfortable; the shower was easy to use and had good water pressure; and the location was perfect for our needs.
