“The perfect place to stay in Paris!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We spent 6 days in the studio apartment at Quai Montebello. Thomas, through whom we made the reservations and who is very helpful, honest and responsive, was away but in his place was the very helpful and courteous José, who met us upon our arrival and explained everything in detail. The apartment was very clean and well-equipped (free wifi!) and very, very secure; in fact, you enter through two locked doors before you can enter the vestibule. It is very close to several outstanding restaurants, many of which are tucked away in little backstreets nearby and, even in July (the height of tourist season), diners were mostly French -- always a good sign! The magnificent Cathedral of Notre Dame greeted us each morning when we awoke and we spent many happy hours nursing a bottle of wine and watching the world milling around in the square outside the Cathedral or floating down the Seine in front of us. Within 5 minutes walk (often less) there is a pharmacy, fromagerie, boulangerie, grocery store, ATM machine and produce market. The St Michel/Notre Dame metro station -- which directly connects to Charles de Gaulle airport -- is within a few minutes' walk of the apartment, as is the taxi stand on Blvd St Germain. We walked (or took the BatoBus) everywhere.

I cannot recommend the apartment accommodation more highly. We had high expectations and they were surpassed.

------------

One word of warning -- and this is in NO WAY related to the apartment -- pickpockets and wily con-men and women abound in Paris. Fortunately, we had read about such scams and were prepared when a Romanian woman approached us near the Musée d'Orsay and tried one of the well-known con tricks on us. We had our money safely hidden from any accomplices and she left us empty-handed and visibly annoyed. Forewarned is to be forearmed!

My wife and I stayed 9 nights at the Quai Montebello studio apartment in late May. We were very satisfied with the apartment, itslocation, proximity to the Metro and to restaurants -- and the service was excellent (especially Jose's attention to our needs - he met us promptly to provide the keys, and was available by phone to answer questions), the amenities at the apartment, the appliances. In short, everything was as we hoped it would be. It was great having coffee and croissants in the morning looking out the window at Notre Dame Cathedral no more than 250 meters away. Security at the apartment was very good and everything functioned just as it should. And given the proximity to a main street (Quai Montebello) I was afraid that police sirens and related noise would be a problem but this was not the case. In summary, I would gladly stay at this studio again in the future, and I would recommend it to others seeking a clean and convenient apartment in the heart of Paris.

We stayed with my husband in the small studio apartment on 5th floor. It is very well equipped, comfortable and close to Saint Michel Notre Dame metro station and all attractions. There was a kitchen that had everything we need to be self sufficient. Even we stayed in February and It was very cold outside we did not have any heating problems. The area was very safe even the apartment eas very safe too.

The area is fascinating, lovely cafes, bars restaurants and it is just in the heart of Latin quartier.
We were warmy welcomed by Jose, who explained everything we need very helpfully.

We wish we can stay again and longer..

My husband and I were recently planning a trip to Paris and had booked our stay at Quai Montebello, but unfortunately we had to cancel. We had made a deposit and the booking process was flawless. When we had to cancel, Thomas quickly responded and gave us our full refund back the same day. It's always hard to cancel any trip especially when money has been exchanged, you never know if it will be a hassle or not. In this case if you book with them, you can rest assured they are incredibly professional in their transactions and make good on their policies, even going beyond with courtesy and promptness. Hopefully we will be able to book in the future. Thank you Thomas, sincerely, Sam

My wife and I stayed in the studio apartment and could not have been more pleased with our experience. We booked on short notice due to an unexpected "glitch" with another reservation and were thrilled with the rapid response we got to our booking inquiry. Check-in was swift and efficient, the accommodations were excellent (including free wi-fi!), the location cannot be beat, and we even had great service when we couldn't figure out how to make the washing machine work (in less than 20 minutes, Jose was at our flat to show us how!). We would happily book here again and enthusiastically recommend it. Outstanding in every respect!

My husband and I stayed in the studio apartment from May 7 to May 12. It was clean and the check in/check out process went smoothly. There was a washing maching, TV, full kitchen, full bathroom, comfy bed, elevator, and good security in the building. The view from the apartment is unobstructed of the Notre Dame Cathedral, it was amazing! The neighbourhood around the apartment felt safe and it was close enough to all of the major attractions to walk or take a short bus or subway ride. The neighbourhood also had several different cafes, bars, and restaurants around which are all open late as well, but noise was never a problem.
We booked this apartment through homeaway.com and the process went well.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Paris and I would book again without hesitation.
Thank to you to Thomas and Jose!!

We stayed 7 nights in this beautiful apartment on Quai Montebello and absolutely loved it. We are a family of 5 -- parents, 2 teenagers and a 10- year old. The apartment was spacious, clean, well-maintained and contained all the amenities we needed, including a nicely equipped kitchen for morning coffees, evening snacks. The bedrooms were comfortable and lovely and the living area was ideal -- a big sectional couch plus sofa bed and a nook with dining table perfect for our family to have breakfast before starting our days. The neighbrhood was ideal -- overlooking the Seine and a stone's throw from Notre Dame, we enjoyed the beautiful views from our windows. Even out back we could see the charming streets of the Latin Quarter and a view of the Pantheon -- spectacular location! With the Latin Quarter at our feet we could pop ot every morning for fresh bread, cheese, etc. from the local markets. Wonderful cafes, bakeries and just strolling through the vibrant Quater at night were all right there. The St. Michelle metro station was easily accessible across the street and we went everywhere by metro, which we found the best way to travel when we were not walking. The Seine scenic tour boats were also easily available as was a rental bike depot just a block away, of you are tempted.

Thomas and Jose were accessible, extremely timely in meeting us to show us in, and very helpful. Maps of the neighborhood were there for us in the apartment and everything was ready and waiting for us on arrival. Booking arrangements were also easily handled in advance.

If we are lucky enough to go back to Paris we will not even look for a place to stay -- we will simply call here and hope to stay again!
