This is a large Paris apartment that sleeps up to five adults with the main queen size bed in a loft style raised platform which is open to the living room, and a small second bedroom for one person on an over sized twin bed. Tall windows look out to a small courtyard plus an open view, from a large living room area, which also has 2 day beds, which in the daytime may be used as sofas - each sleeps one adult.
Our best classification for this property is as a two bedroom. However, one of the two bedrooms is on the partially open loft in the living area. In the strictest sense of the word, this "bedroom" area may not be considered a room as the walls are less than one meter high and do not go from floor to ceiling.
Only a one minute walk away is the Odeon metro station, a central and ‘hip’ meeting place, giving the advantage of having transport so close to your door. It is impossible to count all the small cafes, bakeries, crepe stands and restaurants, plus pubs and bars in the immediate area… there are just too many!
This short term rental apartment is 57 m2 (about 610 ft2) and is on the 1st European floor (2nd US) via stairs, no elevator. While it has not been recently renovated, it offers exceptional value for price, especially considering the superb location!
Just try finding a hotel in this area for 4 people under $300 - in fact it would be closer to 400 Euros and consider that 5 people here can sleep for about $64 per person/night! The bathroom has a small bathtub with attached shower and the WC is in a separate room, convenient to all without crossing any room to access it. The kitchen is small, but fully equipped to cook or just reheat take away items from the many nearby delicatessens. One special feature of this apartment is the extra high ceilings which allow for the double sized bed loft above the living room and provides lots of open space. The living room has a dining table, which seats up to 5 and a coffee table in front of the two day beds. Note the few steps up to the loft bedroom area are very sturdy and stable.
We like this apartment for its great location and ample size living room and for the separate bedroom which is down a short internal hallway. Likewise, the high ceilings, tall windows and courtyard just off this busy street make it a prime choice. We do note that there is a children’s school adjacent and during their recess; never before 8:30 am, the kids laughter and play can be heard on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Fridays. The WC is apart from the bathroom and makes this apartment more practical for 5 people, and we feel this Paris rental apartment is a good value for money property - not luxury, but very comfortable and convenient for the vacation traveler.
While this great apartment is comfortable and all appliances are in good working order, it has not been recently renovated. There are some ‘worn areas’, mainly touch ups of paint needed and repolishing of the floors. Presently, the apartment is a bit 'sparse' in its decoration but the owner is improving on that. Do note the bathroom and kitchen cabinetry has been recently upgraded. We feel it is still a great value for reasonable price and great location.
As mentioned above, this apartment is slowly being ‘upgraded’. It is very large, comfortable and will always be clean. But it has not been renovated for a while and the paint on walls is in good shape, however the parquet floors are indeed a bit “rough” but do not squeak and of course comfortable to walk on, without any holes or ‘toe-stubbers’!! Half of the apartment has a polished cement floor, which is plain looking. The WC room is very much 60’s style with dark wallpaper and exotic looking chandelier lamp. The twin beds in salon when requested will be made up, and only need to remove the outer day cover on them. The 3 twin beds are not “high quality” but are comfortable and appropriate for adults or kids during a short stay.
St. Germain just for you! Come enjoy this special place and comfortable apartment…

My friends and I very much enjoyed our stay in this apartment. It was easy to get there from CDG airport using the metro system. Just take RER B to St.-Michel/Notre Dame and walk a couple of blocks. The rental company sent us easy-to-follow directions. There are two outer doors to the building that open with a code. The apartment is up one flight of narrow stairs.
The apartment is nothing fancy, but it's clean and comfortable. In the open living room area, there are two narrow cot-type beds that double as couches. We didn't sleep on these, but they would be good for children. The loft is up a tiny set off stairs, and we found the queen bed to be quite comfortable. Down the hall, there's a small bedroom with a twin bed.
The WiFi and phone worked great, though we didn't try calling the us.
The best part of the apartment is its location. It's very close to Île de la Cité and Jardin du Luxembourg. If you're a good walker, you can get to most of the historic sites on foot. There's also a metro across the street, and a different line at St. Michel a couple of blocks away. There are grocery stores in the area if you want to make use of the kitchen. Definitely visit Georges Larnicol (a block to the left) for some macarons!

Very nice 2nd story apartment in the heart of the Left Bank. Although the Blvd St. Germain is busy street, the apt. is at the back of the building's courtyard and quiet. Ten-minute walk to the Ile de la Cite. Great accomodations for three--crowded for four or five. Groceries, boutiques, bakers, patisseries--all kinds of stores nearby. Odeon Metro stop across the street, PO around the corner. Manager was courteious and very responsive. Two-burner stove limits cooking somewhat and the kitchen could use more glasses, knives, leftover containers, etc. One kitchen appliance and one lamp didn't work. Tourist season rental price
improves with greater number of renters, but see above on numbers. I've rented a half-dozen apartments from VIP, and this was one of the top two.
