This is an overdue review. Stayed here for 4 nights in December. We stayed in a one-bedroom apartment that fits 4 adults on the second floor. The room has 1 queen-sized bed and there is a sofabed in the living room. The bathroom is quite spacious and there is a small but well-equipped kitchenette. Our apartment overlooks the museum. You...

We arrived 20 minutes late to find the lady from Short Stay waiting patiently on the door step (I recommend the 'key delivery' option) Try to book a Museum Veiw apartment. As the rear veiw is non existent! In 10 minutes we were in one of the many local bars/cafes. The clean & tidy apartment is 2 minutes from the... More

Cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough. We were stuck in a bit of a hotel-crisis and booked here, last-minute, and a really friendly representative from Short Stays come out to meet us on his motorbike with the keys to this great little apartment after we got stuck in the freezing cold having muddled the address. Pro-tip: the office for Short... More

The room was lovely and a nice alternative to your average hotel. The staff were very helpful and the location was great. The train was around the corner, as well as grocery store and laundromat was a 10 min walk. The museum and garden across the road were nice and you can walk to all the major attractions from the...

Stayed here for 5 days in August. Great location, a few steps from the Metro - around the corner there are a few places to eat and a Monoprix for shopping. The room was comfortable and the kitchen was a good size and stocked with dishes. The building was secured with a keypad for entry and another for accessing the... More

Booked a studio apartment here end of October and was really happy with the way it all worked out. the price was reasonable so we were not expecting a luxury apartment. It was more like a big hotel room but it was clean and comfy. The little kitchen was great and we ate many meals here after a long day... More

A good choice to avoid some of the outrageous hotel prices in Paris and the expensive food. We were able to cook breakfast and make nice picnics with the apartment facilities: stove top, microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee maker and adequate crockery and utensils. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom was adequate. Apartment was clean on arrival. Building was secure, with... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
