“Comfortable and Convenient”
Reviewed May 19, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

person found this review helpful

I stayed at this flat for just over one week in May 2017. The apartment was comfortable, clean and attractive. I liked having the little kitchen, a full bathroom (with well functioning plumbing) and a pretty view from the windows. It is located in the heart of the Latin Quarter but is on a little lane so it was absolutely quiet at night. I did not use the TV or washing machine but I was glad to have the coffee pot while getting over jet lag! There was a large bottle of water in the fridge for me. There were a few other grocery items (coffee, coffee filters, muesli, sugar, oil, salt/pepper) that I think had been left by previous occupants. There was plenty of shampoo and soap available. I found the apartment to be convenient to the sites I most wanted to see on the Left Bank and the Ile de la Cite. It takes just a few minutes to get to Notre Dame Cathedral, the Sorbonne, the Cluny museum. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants in the area. There are information sheets in the apartment that provide restaurant recommendations that I found useful. I greatly appreciated the proximity to the St. Michel Metro stop, which is also a stop for the RER-B train from Charles de Gaulle Airport.

“Lovely flat in perfect location”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at this flat for four days and found it lovely and comfortable, in an excellent location in the heart of the Quartier Latin, with nearby public transport. Although this is a very touristy area, the flat was very quiet as it is situated in a pedestrian passage. Albert, the owner, went out of his way to be helpful. We initially had a problem with broadband and he made sure that this was sorted out very quickly, keeping us updated on progress. I have no hesitation in recommending this flat as a great place to stay when exploring Paris.

Thank you so much for your understanding. I believe that after the renovation of the building is completed, all these little problems will be resolved and some touch-ups will be made so that both structure and surface will be and look very sound. I hope you will be able to check it for yourselves in your forthcoming trips to Paris.
All the best,
Albert

“Convenient but a bit tired. Some new dishes, clean kitchen towels and new pillows would help.”
Reviewed January 16, 2017 for a stay in November 2016

I left in the morning and didn't return until evening. I had coffee and oatmeal in the morning.
This is not a place you want to do any extensive cooking. I hit my head on the oven trying to dry dishes.

The bed was a little hard but adequate for a studio. I didn't want a pull out sofa bed and this has a full queen size bed.

I'd suggest some newer kitchen towels and pillows. The towels were very stained and the pillows on the sofa were torn.

All in all, clean, which is important and very convenient.

“Excellent location, great size, reliable wifi, comfy beds, strong and hot showers... So much to love!”
Reviewed December 24, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

person found this review helpful

As the title indicates, we had an overwhelmingly positive experience in this apartment. We were sad to leave!

The location is perfect for tourists such as ourselves. With 3 metro stops in close proximity, we had easy access to the city, but within a 5-minute walk, we could reach Notre Dame, countless restaurants, a pharmacy, a currency exchange, and so much more. Historic and beautiful San Severin church was literally right around the corner, serving not only as our landmark but also as a wonderful place to explore.

The apartment itself was ideal for our group of 3 adults. The wifi was reliable and strong, and easily supported our 5 devices. The main bed was soft and comfortable, and the smaller (twin) bed was welcoming and warm as well. We loved falling asleep under the wonderfully rustic beams in the ceiling. The shower was strong and hot, and we never ran short of warm water. We especially appreciated the kitchenette, and took great delight in having access to a fridge and a toaster oven.

The space itself was fabulous, and unusually large for a European room. We had ample space for our suitcases and other belongings, and appreciated the seating areas and the table, as well.

We received a discounted booking price because the building is current under scaffolding at the front, but this had zero impact on our stay, and actually helped us identify the building when we first arrived. We never heard construction noise and did not feel this influenced anything about our visit. In short, we loved this apartment and were delighted at how affordable and wonderful it was! It was the perfect place for our stay while visiting Paris.

“A delightful little studio apartment that met our every need.”

people found this review helpful

This studio apartment was perfect for my husband and me during our nine day stay in Paris. It is a large studio with a small kitchen, but I cannot think of anything that we wanted that we did not have.

Not only were we pleased with the apartment, but we loved the neighborhood. As the oldest section of Paris, we enjoyed the cobblestone streets, old buildings, fine restaurants and the help of our neighboor across the street who runs The Abby Bookstore where we could speak English when our French failed us.

I highly recommend this apartment to a couple (could sleep three if one wanted to sleep on the sofa bed) who want a quiet place to stay in a quiet little neighborhood.

All you need for 2-3 days in Paris from central location; this place is made by the ceiling and its old beams. We successfully used Albert's eating out suggestions and he and his staff were very welcoming. The bed was good. and the flat was well provided.

“Good location”
Reviewed May 21, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We enjoyed our stay at the Parcheminerie. The property manager was polite, and there were some printed recommendations, but our interactions with her were minimal - if you want a property manager who will offer you a lot of local guidance, this may not be your place, but that wasn't a big concern to me.

The apartment is on the second floor, and the stairs are windy and a bit narrow. We had no problems, but it may be a bit difficult for elderly travelers. The apartment itself is well located in the Latin Quarter, near a lot of restaurants and shops, and a very short (5 minute) walk from Notre Dame and Sainte-Chappelle. If you want some local guidance, I definitely recommend stopping by the bookstore right across the street from the apartment - it's owned by a very nice Canadian man who offered some excellent restaurant suggestions (look for the Canadian flag by the front door).

Have a great time in Paris!
