"Last summer I stayed in this beautiful apartment in the Rue de Buci with my 16 year-old granddaughter. Situated in the 6th Arrondissemont, right off the Boulevard Saint-Germain, it was the perfect location for visiting Paris on foot. From here we walked everywhere - from the Panthéon to the Catacombs to the Eiffel Tower to the Centre Pompidou to the Arc de Triomphe. A city bus to Montmartre and Sacré Coeur stopped just a short walk away on the Rue de Rennes. Rue de Buci is a lively street with shops, restaurants, cafés and street music. A supermarket and bakery are close by on the Rue de Seine. As someone who lived and worked in Paris off and on in the early 00’s, I chose this location deliberately - and my granddaughter loved it. The apartment itself was clean, bright and modern (in a lovely heritage building) and perfectly equipped with stove, fridge, washer/dryer, TV, Wi-Fi, phone, dishes, glasses and bedding for the two beds (one double in the bedroom, one sofa bed in the living room). We both loved it - and most importantly, we felt safe there! Both the owner and the apartment manager were a pleasure to deal with. I would return in an instant and I thoroughly recommend it to all my friends and to anyone wishing to get a taste of the “real” Paris."
