Additional Location Information
Take one look at a map and you will understand the attraction of staying in our centrally-located apartment . On the second story of a well-maintained 18th-century building. A discrete wood door on the rue Dauphine lets you in the secure vestibule of our building. Walk up two flights of stairs (there is no elevator) to our large open studio.
The rue Dauphine, named in honor of the future Louis XIII , was opened in 1607 following the construction of the Pont Neuf. Saint-Germain represents the legendary Paris of cafes, jazz clubs , boutiques, bookstores, galleries , and museums . Literary and artistic walks abound in this neighbourhood associated with luminaries including Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Simone de Beauvoir.
Rue de Buci is only a block away and has everything from fruit and vegetable stands, gourmet food stores with tantalizing take-away, as well as wine and cheese shops. Eateries abound in this neighbourhood, from intimate bistros to elegantly appointed, Michelin-rated restaurants.
A stone's throw away are three favourite haunts of famous writers, the Cafe de Flore , Les Deux Magots , and Brasserie Lipp . Or perhaps you desire bread and pastries from some of the finest patisseries in Paris? Laduree and Paul are right nearby. If you are an art lover the Louvre , the Muse d'Orsay , Notre Dame and Cluny, as well as many other museums are all within a fifteen minute walk. For walking or jogging the Tuileries Garden is located close by and you will never forget the lovely experience of seeing the Louvre and the Tuileries before visiting hours. Conveniently located to public transportation, the apartment is just a couple of blocks from metro stops Odeon and Saint-Michel as well as numerous bus routes.

What Past Guests Are Saying
A delightful stay!
This was our first trip to Paris and we will certainly return. When we do we will choose to stay in the Dauphine Studio. Exactly as the pictures. The location was fantastic! We especially enjoyed the short walk (5 min) to the Seine. With two children (8, 10) this area was perfect for us. We could walk almost everywhere we wanted to go.(Lourve/NotreDame/Musee De Orsay) I would recommend taking the train to the Eiffel Tower (although we did walk) Odeon Metro stop is just 5-7 minutes walk from the apartment. We enjoyed having the fully functional kitchen in the apt and ate breakfast and dinners at home. Carrefour and Picard were conveniently located. We ordered a car that was recommended by the rental company and he was efficient at picking us up and getting us to the apt. We also used him to take us to the airport. We were met at the apartment by the agent (Shelley) who personally walked us through the apt and key exchange. Staying in this old Parisian flat was such a good choice for us!
Service, Facilities and Location!
We had planned to stay on Ile de La Cite but that plan fell through. After having stayed in Dauphine and having walked around Ile de la Cite, I was so much happier that we stayed in Dauphine. The location is excellent: a block-and-a-half from Carrefour, right at Rue de Buci, surrounded by restaurants, near the RER and the metro (Odeon is about two blocks away if you don't get lost :-)), close to an efficient post office, Fnac, Ile de la Cite, walking distance to the right bank etc. Paris Rentals was extremely helpful and patient with us and their agent in Paris was really helpful. Checking in was effortless and we were given tons of info about the apartment and Paris. The apartment was well equipped, the best one we had in Europe, and they even gave us spices. If you have great difficulty with stairs, then be aware that this is on the second floor. That said, my mother, who has difficulty with stairs said she would go back there in spite of the stairs. The agent was even available to us on Christmas when we had a minor issue (I felt really bad for contact her on Christmas). Staying in Dauphine does have a small village feel to it. Also, some famous restaurants are two or so blocks away. Be aware that there can be a bit of noise from the street but as we were there in winter, it was not that bad. In fact, most of the time, we heard nothing.
My wife and I stayed at this location for the second time in 2 years. It is a very clean and cozy place to stay. The location can not be beat. You can pretty much walk to all of the great spots in Paris. Metro is a quick 5 minute walk away.
I would highly recommend this spot to anyone looking to stay in Paris.
We loved the studio apartment. The location was fabulous! We were able to walk practically everywhere we wanted to go. Wonderful restaurants in area and great shops. Bakery and fruit stand right around the corner. The apartment was perfectly accommodated. I would definitely stay here again.
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Nice apartment with great location
My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in September 2012. We took the train from the airport and walked from the closest train station. The agent met us in the apartment. She was very nice. She helped with figuring out the appliances, internet, TV and so forth. She gave us some recommendations on where to eat. We were within walking distance of many of the museums. If we couldn't walk, we took the train. This is a very busy area and the street was noisy until after midnight, but tapered off that. Lots of little cafe's, restaurants, bars. We didn't really cook because there were so many choices of great food right outside our door!
Santa Barbara, CA
Would happily stay again.
Three teenage granddaughters and I stayed a week in Dauphine and found it to be quite adequate for our needs. Clean and welcoming. Enjoyed a chilled bottle of wine in the frig. Wonderful location near markets and cafes and shops. Metros Odeon and St. Michael are very close. Biggest complaint is the lighting. The ceiling fans (wonderful for cooling the room) are installed below the lights making the lighting flicker when the fans are running and the lights are turned on... a bit disconcerting.
Perfect vacation, could not have picked a better place! Right in the heart of the Latin Quarter, incredibly close to metro and RER stops, as well as the Seine, Notre Dame, and other sight seeing locations. The apartment itself is adorable, includes all the amenities you could need, and manages to keep out the noise while being in a fun spot. I recommend to all.

First, the bad: buzzer did not go to the apt., only to open the door. Panic, helpful hotel manager next door, then voila, entry! That is it for the bad. The good could go on for days--you don't have time to read that book, there is too much to see right in the neighborhood! Rue Buci: grocery, flowers, restaurants, jazz musicians on the street! Walk to everything or nothing because the subway and the RER are just two blocks away. The apartment itself was open, airy, and had everything we needed efficiently. We could cook a full dinner or heat up food from the stores nearby, or walk to sushi, Thai, French, Italian, anything, including incredible ice cream for dessert. I would book again, only with less luggage--2nd floor in Paris means 3rd floor, no elevator to americans.
It would have been better if we could have used Paypal--wire service payment was a pain, and expensive.
Great experience throughout. No complaints, just praise.
From beginning to end, our two-week rental from Paris Rental Connections was fine. We dealt with Elodie Fortoul, who was consistently prompt and helpful.
The studio apartment fit our needs perfectly. It was clean and plenty spacious for my husband and me. It came with all the items needed for our stay (including cleaning supplies, etc.). We were met by a pleasant young woman who explained where everything was and how it worked. There was a lot of night-time noise from a nearby bar, but all we had to do was close the windows and turn on the (silent) ceiling fans for quiet comfort.
The apartment was located on the Left Bank, just two blocks from the Seine. The street it's on -- Rue Dauphine -- intersects with the Pont Neuf -- and across the river.
Grocery stores, cafes, restaurants, pharmacies, etc. were within a couple of blocks, as was a Metro station. We only took the Metro a few times because it was easy to walk to most of the main museums and interesting neighborhoods. Our sunset and night-time walks along the Seine were spectacular.
There was an issue about our security deposit, but Elodie and Michele resolved it quickly and we were promptly refunded the entire amount.
Also, the limousine service Paris Rental Connections recommended gave us excellent service to and from the airport.
If we get the chance in the future, we will definitely rent this apartment through Paris Rental Connections
One week in Paris with my two adult daughters.
Our studio apartment was just perfect. Plenty of room for the three of us storage wise and room wise. Location could not have been better with shops, restaurants, banks, grocery store, etc. right outside our door and yet could hear no noise in the apartment. We felt safe both day and night in this lovely area and it was very convenient taking buses, trains or walking to other areas. Could not have chosen a better location. Would stay here again.
San Antonio, TX
Wonderful apartment and location
We traveled with our two children, ages 9 and 6. This apartment was great and bigger than I expected. It was larger than a hotel room and very comfortable. Our kids loved the bunk beds and it was a very efficient use of space. They had good wifi access and the agent was very friendly and helpful when we arrived. She gave us all the required info. upon arrival and helped set up our laptops. The location couldn't be better. It's in the heart of the 6th arron. and we walked everywhere. There is a supermarket two minutes away and plenty of restaurants and pastry shops all around the area. The apartment itself is on the second floor (no lift) and is very clean. Bedding was good, heating was good, everything nicely stocked. They have plenty of dishwashing tabs, toilet paper, laundry tabs and a hairdryer and cd player. There are only two things that we didn't care for. First, if you are expecting an american style washer/dryer, be aware. There is a small washing machine in the kitchen but the steam dry function just was confusing and didn't do it for us. We tried washing one load and had to hang dry our clothes which was a pain. So unless you are used to this setup, make sure you pack enough clothes. Second, the bathroom/toilet is separate from the shower. The shower/sink are fantastic but we wish the toilet could have been next to the shower. They are on opposite ends of the room. Again, we just weren't used to this and didn't like that configuration because there is no sink next to the toilet. All the other amenities are great and just like the pictures. This is a great value and very comfortable for a family of 4. It was also quiet and we did not hear street noise at night. Michele and Elodie at Paris Rentals were very responsive/professional and answered all my questions leading up to stay.
4 of us stayed in this apartment for one week. The location was perfect (close to metro, local restaurants and bars, supermarket) and apartment was clean and spacious enough for 4 people. Also, the owners were very kind to leave us a bottle of vine. A big plus were free calls to us. We would definitely stay in this apartment again.
this was a great location and we called it home.
service was great. shelly was awesome. the apartment was very nice and the location perfect. i would upgrade some of the kitchen stuff and make sure all the lights work. some kitchen stuff should be tossed and made new. the scissors did not work. knives were dull. cutting boards dull. the expesso machine leaked even after i bought new gaskets for it. the light under the microwave kept going out. another kitchen light blew. the main 5 lights had to be fixed while we were there. Very minor things that could be better!
We had a great time!!!
we really enjoyed this studio apartment. great location, kitchen was very useful, booking and support in paris were very helpful. would definitely stay there again.
Great apartment in the perfect spot
This was my first trip to Paris and I was traveling with my mother-in-law and my teenage daughter. The apartment was perfect for us. We walked to most of the sites that we wanted to see and the location was also great for its proximity to the bustling Rue de Buci with cafes, restaurants, and stores. I would definitely stay at the Dauphine again next time I travel to Paris.
Nice studio apartment
Cosy little studio apartment close to the Odeon Metro Station. It did not feel cramped with two adults with 2 tweens. Lots of boulangeries, restaurants close by and a small supermarket. Little noisy at night as another reviewer noted. Looks exactly like the pictures.
Los Angeles, California
A gem + Location, location, location!!!
My family had never rented overseas, and Michelle and her staff with Paris Rental Connections were very responsive to all our questions/concerns. They provided complete information regarding payment/deposits and how to get to the apartment well in advance. In Paris, Shelly (an american transplant) was available via phone and waiting for us in the apartment when we arrived (we drove into Paris from Dordogne). She oriented us to all the amenities, and was full of helpful suggestions (including how to contact taxi for service to the airport). This studio was perfect for our family. The girls (10 & 13) were happy in the bunk beds, and the murphy bed was comfortable. Although compact, we never felt crowded -- but, have to admit, the eating area is limited if you expand the dining table. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get :-) We used all the kitchen appliances with no problems -- the clothes washer/dryer is a little tricky, so make sure to take notes, even tho basic instructions are included in the apt. booklet.
The location was perfect! We walked to everything...Notre Dame, Louvre and Luxemburg Gardens very close...walks to Invalides, Eiffel Tower, Arch de Triomphe etc. were more ambitious, and kept us in shape (lol) so no impact from the almost daily nutella and banana crepes from the friendly vendor down the street (going towards the Seine). If you don't want to walk, bus and metro stations are very close. Yes, the sounds of the nearby nightspots do travel up to the windows, but considering the city location, it was surprisingly quiet in the apartment. We liked the hustle and bustle of the neighborhood, and when we had enough of it, this was a nice little retreat to return to. I imagine if my husband and I had come alone, or if our children were adults, we probably would have sampled more of the nightlife. Maybe next time!
Wonderful Flat on the Left Bank
Large studio flat right in the heart of the left bank. Close to Ile de la Cite. Just two blocks from the Metro. Well maintained and great for a family of 4. Bakeries and restaurants conveniently located along with a Carrefour. Excellent agents to work with. Would definitely rent this again.
We arrived in Paris and were greeted by a local representative of the rental company. She showed us all of the features of the apartment and how everything worked as well as leaving us with a bottle of wine.
I have to say as a first time renter of an apartment in a foreign country I was nervous that it wouldn't live up to the advertisement. I have to say Dauphine Studio was absoultely as advertised. It was spacious, airy, bright and extremely comfortable. The kitchen was well set up for anyone who likes to cook.
You could not beat the location. It was within very easy walking distance to many of Paris' main attractions (Louvre, Notre Dame etc). As well it was a short walk to the Metro which made the rest of the city accessible.
I could not have been happier with a place to stay and know that I will certainly be back to stay hear again hopefully in the near future.
Suited us perfectly.
We can heartily recommend this apartment. It met every one of our principle desires: good bathroom/shower, good kitchen area, reasonably quiet, great WiFi, and perfect location.
Dining tip: Head one block up to Rue Christine. A nice pasta/pizza place on the corner, and three great French restaurants down this short street. Each one outstanding.
Location is superb. Easy walk to the best part of the city with kids 6 & 8. Great cafes, stores, and restaurants nearby. The agent was very helpful, friendly, patient. Our flight's canceled but luckily moving appointment with agent from Sat to Sun was easy. Laundry washer isn't as complicated as we heard. A bit on the noisy side at night due to the lively night life in neighborhood, but not a big problem. Will stay here again for sure.
Regensburg in Bavaria
It was a great pleasure and a wonderful stay!
We were spending seven wonderful day in the heart of Paris. The situation is splendid. We could walk by foot and use the metro and had a garage for our car round the corner.
San Francisco, CA
Can't Wait To Return!
My wife, 7 year old son and I stayed here for a week. It was the perfect spot for a small family like ours. The apartment was comfortable and well appointed. We loved the neighborhood, the local shops, transportation and easy walking distance to Notre Dame, Louvre, etc.
Paris Rental Connections was very easy to deal with and very professional.
Looking forward to our next stay.
Children's First Trip to Europe
We had a wonderful time at the Dauphine. We planned our first back to Europe in some time and the first trip with our chilren to spead a week in Paris and it was magical. The apt was so well situated that we ended up walking many places (even with a 5 year old). The kids loved the bunk beds and the ability to buy fresh made croissants and groceries at the nearby shops. I loved the american style shower and water pressure and the ceiling fans helped considerably with the unexpected heat wave. I have already recommended it to many friends and colleagues and my children, husband and I can't wait to return
Huntington Beach, CA
The Quintessential Paris Experience!
My husband & I loved the place! It was the perfect location in Paris! The convenient bike rack around the corner (as well as the close by Metro stop & so many sites just walking distance away) made transportation so easy. The apartment itself was clean, quiet, & exactly all we needed for our trip. We would highly recommend the apartment to everyone!
fabulous neighborhood and apartment
This apartment and location was perfect for a week stay in Paris. It had everything we needed, easy and very comfortable. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
from Devon UK
Almost very good but we had problems with broken blinds and a number of light bulbs needed replacing so it wasn't as bright as it should have been! the higher ledges around the room were thick with dust - not good with allergic people in the party! However we enjoyed staying here in spite of these details and hope to return in 2011.
Response from Paris Rental Connections - 02/03/2011
Dear Judy, Thank you for your review - I'm glad to say that we now have a new cleaning service since Jan 2010 who also do maintenance so have not had any further cleaning issues and other maintenance problems.

San Jose, California
The studio apartment was just right for our family of three (3). My husband Mark, our teenage daughter Gabrielle and myself. The building itself is old of course but we were surprised how the apartment itself is modernized. The kitchen is wonderful. The bathroom shower is big enough for my husband's height... who is 6'1. We wanted to use the washer/dryer combination but it was too confusing so we didn't..oh well. The location is great for the price we paid (very close and walking distance to the River Seine/Notre Dame). There is a wonderful bakery a few steps out of the apartment called Eric Kayser. Bistros/Cafes right outside the apartment. The Metro is also a few steps ahead. What can I say? Left Bank...Great location!!! We truly enjoyed our stay in Paris and we'll be back soon. I would recommend this studio apartment for my friends and family.

Adelaide, Sth Australia.
Walking distance to many attractions and 5 min walk to 2 Metro stations. Safe, clean, comfortable, spacious well equipped and appointed, couldnt ask for more. 2rd floor appartment located on typical picturesque Paris street / intersection. No traffic noise in appartment, but no views from window.
John & Sarah
A wonderfully central location on the doorstep of Paris life
The apartment was a great base for our short trip to Paris. Located close enough to the sites that our 5 and 7 year olds could manage walking to them and also not too far from public transport, including the bus stop tright outside. The Odeon area itself was vibrant and, as such, noisy til late some nights but the apartment was equipped to deal with the noise. A creperie two doors down made dinner for the kids and easy choice and if the apartment is available next time we would certainly look to stay again.
Roomy apartment, fantastic location
My wife and I recently stayed in this apartment and we both agreed it was terrific. The apartment itself, while often described as compact, is nonetheless two to four times the size of typical hotel rooms in the latin quarter. It was very nice to have the apartment to come back to to eat lunch, take a nap, etc. and not feel cramped as we would have in a hotel. The amenities in the apartment were all more than adequate, with a very nice kitchen area, a bathroom with a stand-up shower that always had plenty of hot water, cable TV and wifi. As we lacked the benefit of a hotel concierge, the laptop I brought was handy for finding answers to our questions (when is this museum open, etc). Our sole problem was a lack of understanding of the washing machine, which was rectified that same day by an HRC representative who got us on our way to clean socks. It should also be noted that the location of this apartment is ideal - the neighborhood is wonderful with ample restaurants, cafes, shops, and even a small supermarket with very reasonable prices. It makes it very easy to stay in for a meal or two to save on expenses. I felt that by being in this neighborhood, we had the benefit of the true Parisian experience, much more than we would have at a hotel. You can walk to numerous attractions and museums from this apartment, though there are also two metro stops nearby. The pictures accurately represent the apartment, so if you think it looks appealing, then I assure you it is. Also, we didn't hear much noise, other than the morning trash or delivery trucks, and found the bed comfortable. I would recommend the agency, this apartment, and the Rue de Buci neighborhood. In all, we had a truly wonderful experience.
