“Amazing location, perfect apartment.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Our family of four (2 adults, two kids, 10 and 13) spent a week at this absolutely amazing apartment. It was bigger than I thought it would be from the pictures, and the views from the 5 windows overlooking Notre Dame were even better than the pictures. Cooked in the well equipped kitchen every day and enjoyed being able to do laundry. It was very warm during the days outside, but there was always a nice breeze in the apartment. Temperature was not a problem even on the hottest days. We shopped in the local markets and bakeries every day, walked the neighborhood, and enjoyed being very close to the Metro. I could not have asked for a better week in Paris, and being able to stay here was easily the best decision we made. The rental experience was very easy - conducted in English, entirely timely and very professional. Thomas and Jose were wonderful. No regrets, other than not being able to stay longer.

What a location! What an apartment.This is a two bedroomed apartment in the heart of Paris overlooking Notre Dame and the Seine. It has a large combined bathroom/laundry, self contained kitchen, separate toilet, a large, comfortable sitting /dining room and the most wonderful views from the bedrooms and the sitting room. It is in walking distance of most Paris attractions, the metro is close by; it has a lift and excellent security. Markets, restaurants (the Panis Restaurant on the corner, outside our door was a great general meeting place) and our son spent a lot of time in the nearby Shakespeare and Company Bookstore. The arrangements made with us regarding arrival and departure were easy to follow, we were given little "tips" on the best way to buy metro tickets etc and we were well looked after. Thank you Thomas and Jose. We will recommend this apartment to friends and will stay here again when in Paris.

Firstly,

We are hugely grateful to Thomas and his colleagues for their prompt attention to our emails both before our stay and in person after we arrived.

Our arrival went perfectly, and Jose welcomed us from our taxi on the pavement!

The location is so very central and the views even more stunning than the photos!

We were a party of three, the apartment is very spacious, enough sleeping area for 6 people plus baby, there is a full sized cot.

Minor downsides : -
There is no oven, or freezer (fridge with ice box), a 2 ring hob and microwave.

However, that is no problem. French prepared salads from any supermarket (betteraves, carrottes rapees, celeriac remoulade etc) are delicious so you can do omelettes, steaks etc with crusty bread.

Also check out Picard, a national chain, brilliant very high end frozen food. Turn right from front door till you hit Boulevard St Germain c 13 mns later. We particularly recommend the moules marinieres and aubergine/cheese dishes. Loads of choice.You can let these defrost in worktop/fridge and reheat in saucepan or in microwave,

There is just one w.c, although separate from bathroom. Towels are (just) adequate but there there is constant very hot water. Washing machine and drying facilities very welcome.

The block is very quiet, but there is a bit of late night noise from the river/ street below - take earplugs (we always do!) Beds and bedding are very comfortable and we slept extremely well.

May get hot in summer, right under the roof, but although there is no air conditioning there are breeze.

Would happily recommend.

If you are looking at this, then you must be looking for an apartment in Paris....Look no further!! Book this apartment! I have just returned from a weeks stay with my Mom, and two children aged 11 and 9. My Mom and I each had our own bedrooms, while my kids loved sleeping on the sofa bed in the lounge. The apartment is clean and has enough space for everyone.
The location is perfect. The view of Notre Dame is not exaggerated by the photos...it is that good! For tourists wanting to explore Paris the hop on bus has three routes that meet one block for the apartment and the Batobus water bus is directly below the apartment..so easy and convenient, especially with children! The area around the apartment is fabulous for walking around, with many little food shops and supermarkets for shopping and dining. Thomas and Jose are a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. A perfect Parisian holiday!

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment as a family of five in October and could not rate it highly enough. Quai Montebello has an almost perfect location across the road from the Seine and Notre Dame (we could watch the queues from our bedroom to pick the best time to visit) on the edge of both St Germaine and the Latin Quarter where you can pick from the more touristy areas or the backstreets where we seemed to be the only English speakers. The apartment itself is beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean with everything you need and more. And although there was a slight mix up when we arrived (entirely our fault) our hosts could not have been more gracious or charming. Will definitely be back.

We stayed in the studio apartment in June for four days. Everything was perfect for the two of us. Best of all was sitting at the open windows (with glass of wine) looking across the River Seine to Notre Dame. At night there was plenty of activity around Notre Dame - buskers, dancers, acrobats etc., but as soon as we wanted to sleep the double glazed windows shut out all noise. Everything went well with our booking with Thomas, and Jose met us as planned to hand over the keys. The apartment is not far from the Gare de Saint-Michel-Notre-Dame RER station, and is well equipped with plenty of condiments in the kitchen, free wifi, hairdryer, washing machine, etc. We would love to stay here again when next in Paris!

We rented the 6th floor 2 bedroom apartment for a week. There were six of us, but there was a pull out bed in the living room so that the apartment accommodated us all with no problem. The toilet was in a separate room from the very large room that contained the vanity, shower and washing machine so it was also not a problem that there were so many of us and only a single bathroom. The place was furnished with everything we needed for cooking and dining: microwave, stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, coffee makers, utensils, dishes, etc.
The location was ideal, near metro and RER stations. Lots of great shops and restaurants in the area, and also grocery stores. there is a fantastic bakery (eric Keyser) a few blocks away and fabulous ice cream on Ile St. Louis, again very close by. I had suspected that the view could not be exactly as shown, as I have often been disappointed with marketing materials that over sell accommodations. But in this case, we were all awed by the incredible views of notre dame and the seine. There was lots of interesting activity on the bridge and plaza in front of notre dame that we were able to watch from our windows.
The apartment building is very quiet. Although it was a noisy area, due to the hoards of tourists outside and tourist boats with speakers going by, we were able to sleep without a problem with the windows closed - excellent soundproofing. We were lucky that it was not overly warm, because the noise would be a problem if it were very hot and one needed the windows open for the breeze. There are fans though.
The only other possible negative is that the apartment is on the top floor and the ceilings are low, particularly in some rooms where they are sloped. We are all pretty small - the tallest is 5' 7- so it wasn't an issue for us, although we bumped our heads on occasion if we weren't careful. It might be pretty uncomfortable for tall people to live comfortably in this particular top floor apartment.
The management was excellent about the arrangements and Jose met us right on time when we arrived and helpfully showed us everything we needed to know.
Overall, all six of us could not have been more satisfied with the apartment and our experience.
