The studio apartment was fine for one person. My only quibble is that it could do with an armchair for relaxation. No where to sit other than on one of two high stools or lying on the bed. Apart from this, the apartment was small but comfortable. I would stay here again (but will be requesting an armchair!) Directly opposite... More

Our visit to Paris coincided with a heat wave of temperatures in the high 30's and hence our view of Paris and of our accommodation is somewhat tempered by this heat wave. The apartment was as described, it was small but well appointed and clean. However it was located on a busy and very noisy street with both vehicle and... More

This accommodation requires a 300 euro 'damages deposit' on your credit card on checking in (refundable if all asit was when you arrived). Also note you have there is no reception and you have to collect keys from office elsewhere or else pay for a motorcyclist... More

We stayed in a two-bed apartment in Rue Buffon. It was petite but perfect for 2 people. It was very clean, well laid out and furnished with a nice bathroom. The block was quiet and in a nice location, being opposite the Jardin de Plantes. The coffee machine was a nice touch. It was ideal for our stay...and two doors... More

Stayed there for 4 nights this week and was very pleased with the quality of accommodation and its location. Had great communication with Aurilee prior to travel and she was able to meet us at the apartment, thus negating the need to go the office to pick up the keys. By the time we got there,she was there looking for... More

We stayed on the first floor for 6 nights in June 2015. Our apartment was clean and had no problems with fixtures etc. We are a couple and were given plenty of towels and floor mats. The entire building contains about 20+ apartments and I guess that the bad reviews were for non renovated apartments. Ours however was fine. The... More

After picking the keys up from a different location, always a nuisance but can be alleviated for 30 euro fee, we were very happy with the choice. The studio apartment isn't huge but easily fits 2, with a separate kitchen and bathroom with a bath, there is a breakfast bar and small sitting area, the bed is big and comfy... More

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

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.
