“Studio Notre Dame - great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011

We stayed at the Studio apartment near Notre Dame for three days, which is in a great location, opposite a park (Place Rene Viviani), just a minute away from Notre Dame. Ghislain was a gracious host, gave us the key and took our suitcases to the studio for us, so we could explore Paris before going to the studio at midday.

The studio is up three flights of narrow, spiral stairs (which may be a problem for people with mobility issues) but we found them OK. The studio is modern and clean with an excellent, comfortable bed. The space is comfortable for two people, a small bathroom and shower, but modern and well-equipped with heated towel rack, shampoo, shower gel, cottonbuds, etc.

The window overlooks the apartment opposite, and the window when open has no screen, which meant that when the window was open, the studio lacked privacy. We needed to sleep with the window open because it was very warm; and without air-conditioning, it would be extremely hot and stuffy in summer. There was also only a quilt on the bed, which was a little hot for such warm weather. However, it was quiet at night even with the window open (because it is set back off the road) and we slept well.

Breakfast was provided for the first day (a baguette with butter and jam), but there were no fresh supplies after the first day. The sheets and towels were not changed either, but we didn't mind because it meant that we had the place completely to ourselves for the three days. Other supplies were tea and coffee, oil and vinegar, kettle, iron, umbrella, flat-screen TV and free wifi.

Overall, it was a good place to stay in the heart of Paris, and reasonable value at 110 euro per night.

My wife and I just stayed at the Notre Dame apartment. The location is fantastic, walk out the front door and you are in front of Notre Dame Cathedral. The apartment has everything you need and Ghislain is a great host. The windows open onto a small, slightly dingy courtyard, but it is quieter than opening onto the street. In short a great location, good value, and a very nice host.

I travelled to Paris recently - my first visit and was having difficulty securing a hotel booking at a reasonable rate as the whole trip was a bit last minute. I came upon this B&B here on TripAdvisor. I only had one experience of a B&B before which was ensuite but being under pressure to confirm a reservation I took the good reviews here as a sign that all would be well.

As usual TripAdvisor provided to be an excellent resource for finding new places and this charming B&B overexceeded my expectations.

The location was excellent, it’s a few minutes walking distance to Notre Dame, the Louvre and the Metro stop Chatelet to get you further afield if your not up for walking.

The host Ghislain is the best thing about the B&B he is so friendly and helpful and makes you feel right at home.

Yes the wooden floorboards are squeaky but apart from hearing them squeak underfoot when I walked around I could not hear anything from other rooms. The breakfast included is a nice touch – bread and pastries. There are many restaurants, cafes and shops directly under and within a few minutes walk of the B&B if you fancy something more.

There is some street noise and if you are a very light sleeper maybe it may not suit you but some earplugs should suffice.

There were no issues with sharing the bathroom, it was kept clean and you were not going to be caught short for lack of toilet paper  also there was plenty of hot water.

If you are considering this B&B and the location suits you and you are not the lightest of sleepers I would say go ahead, the rates are fantastic and you wont meet a nicer host.

Four of us, two couples, booked a week at Delareynie. The host, Ghislain, is a French-Canadian who has lived in Paris for 7 years. He is most accommodating, preparing a typical French continental breakfast daily - orange juice, coffee, croissants, baguettes, My wife likes eggs for breakfast and we bought them at a nearby market. Ghislain happily prepared them for us to our specifications each morning.

There are two spacious rooms with double beds and one smaller room suitable for a solo traveler. Ghislain sleeps in this room when it is not occupied. Otherwise we sleeps in the very large living room. Don't let that dissuade you, as he is up and about before you awake.

You have free WiFi and free access to the small kitchen and refrigerator - handy for storing beer, soft drinks and wine and left-overs from your afternoon picnic. You may also use his washer / dryer, saving a bundle on outside laundry service, as well as time that would otherwise be wasted sitting at a laundromat.

The B&B is about a 2 minute walk from the Chattelet - Les Halles train / metro station and about 15 second walk from the Pompidou Center. It is also a block away from the Hotel d' Paris and about 5 minutes to Notre Dame Cathedral. In other words, it is in a prime location.

Drawbacks are that it is on the 4th (American 3rd) floor and the elevator only runs from the 2nd floor (American 1st), so yo will have to walk one flight. Also, there is no A/C, and while the weather was pleasant when we visited in early June, the lack of A/C in July and August will be sorely missed. Fans are available. The floors are wooden and creaky, so be prepared to hear everyone at night trek to and from the toilet. Not a big deal, and kind of funny trying to recognize who is making the walk by listening to the tell-tale creaks.

What really sold us was the price, about $110 per night per couple. Another couple that we traveled with stayed at a 4 star hotel near the Musee d 'Orsay and paid $420 per night and 45 Euros each for breakfast. (Obviously, they went to a nearby Starbucks for their morning java.) And, when we visited them we learned that their A/C was not working.

An additional note: Ghislain will gladly call restaurants or otherwise help you with your stay. We were traveling to Burgundy and wanted to dine at a particular restaurant. After we left Paris, Ghislain called them, made the reservation for us, and emailed us the information while we were on the road.

Bottom line, Delareyne is highly recommended for its location, price and terrific host.

Ghislain was a fantastic host and couldn't have done more for us. The apartment was spotless and the room had a delightful balcony to soak up the local atmosphere and sunshine. The breakfast was fresh and delicious; croissants, baguettes and jam with lovely coffee and orange juice, served in a marvellous dining room. The apartment was so central for the Pompidou centre, Seine, Notre Dame and Les Halles shopping centre. The area was full of cafes, art galleries. This is a gem of a place to stay and we will be returning.

This B & B is in a fantastic location in the Marais with everything near your door including plenty of restaurants and bars. For venturing further there are several Metro lines just around the corner, several Velib stations even closer than the Metro or you can walk all over central Paris from here - we did all of these!
We stayed in the room with one balcony overlooking Rue De la Reynie and there is quite a lot of traffic noise from Blvd. Sebastapol if you are a light sleeper. The room has plenty of space and light and is quite comfortable.....the floor though, is incredibly sqeaky.
The bathroom is shared and is kept clean, and the whole apartment is really very large and open with plenty of light from the balcony doors. Ghislain provides a fresh breakfast of croissants and bread, jams and juice, tea and coffee.
In all, I'm glad we stayed here.

i traveled to paris with 2 nieces and stayed in the apartment on temple street. we met ghislain at the apartment. it's a nice little apartment in a superb location. can't beat the location. it worked out perfect for us to stay there. the only drawback to staying at a place like this was that there was no one to help you out with the local stuff. i don't speak french and this is not a touristy area so to arrange to have a taxi pick us up early to get to the airport, i had to find a hotel close by and ask them to make the arrangements for us (which they kindly did even though we were not guests at their hotel!)

the apartment was great and there is a really wonderful bakery just a few doors away and around the corner.

there is a nightclub just across the street that was going from 10:00 until 3:00 the next morning but when you close the windows, you couldn't hear a thing! we loved people watching from the huge window seat and we felt like we got a little taste of the local neighborhood.
