Before we went here, which was for the first time, I struggled to figure out best part of Paris to stay in. We wanted to be near cafe's and restaurants, as well as tourist attractions, Metro, etc.. We also wanted to feel safe and comfortable. I choose well. While I'm sure other sections would have been fine and probably cheaper,... More

Love the nooks and crannies and the small individual shops. No mass market production and everything tailored to your needs.

Loved this area. It had the typical charm and feel of Paris. Many local spots, non touristy, and the food is fantastic! Clean and safe.

I wandered around the place and it seemed nice from the outside, so I decided ti come in. The church and the area are both lovely, definiately worth a visit.

There are small hotels, cafes, bars and restaurants in a vibrant part of the city. It is within easy walking of major sites of Paris and the Metro is available if desired..

I loved the busy streets, the vendors, the mix of people. I spent a few rainy afternoons sitting in a little cafe, watching Paris walk right past me. It was how I always dreamed a rainy Parisian afternoon would be. I loved the little winding streets, and enjoyed getting caught up in all the foot traffic on the main roads.... More

Stayed 4 nights in July 2014 and was very happy as we found ourselves in the centre of so many great restaurants and within easy walking distance to the major attractions. In any case the metro is so easy to get anywhere quickly. Very clean and safe district. "Entrecote" steak restaurant a standout in Rue Saint Benoit.

Great shopping and restaurants, also street jazz bands and coffee shops. You can walk to the Natural History museum and the famous oldest street market in Paris. Great local foods and cake shops galore. We hung out in this area more than once. Must go to Laduree on Buca
