Guestbook comments from the owner

l'appartamento di rue de l'Université è comodissimo e ben attrezzato per vivere un'esperienza parigina nel delizioso quartiere di St. Germain, uno dei più eleganti, gremito di deliziosi negozi e antiquari. La casa dispone di ogni comfort ed è piacevolmente silenziosa, anche se a due passi dall'animato boulevard St. Germain e dal metró. La presenza di ogni minimo accessorio che si possa desiderare mi ha fatto sentire a casa.

The apartment of rue de l'Université is very comfortable and well arranged in order to live a great Paris experience in the beautiful and elegant area of St. Germain, full of nice shops and antiques. The apartment has all the comforts that you might need and is silent even it is a few steps of the crowded boulevard St. Germain and from the underground. All accessories you might need are available and this help you feeling like at home.

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Apologies for not writing a review sooner... I always think of Paris with the greatest of memories, which started with this lovely "home".... This apartment was indeed The Perfect Place. My Aunt, mother and I stayed here for 10 days in September of 2014. Upon arrival, my aunt was not impressed - too small, etc. By the next morning, she was in love (like mom and I were immediately). First, the location was amazing! We walked EVERYWHERE! To be able to buy the makings of lunch and stroll to the Seine River for a relaxing picnic - who can ask for anything more? Quaint restaurants, bakeries, etc so close by! Not having to use the metro/buses (also within easy walking distance) except for far away sites was such a perk. The street was very quiet, beds comfy (slept like a baby after exploring all day) huge bathroom/closet area was great to store everything, kitchen just fine for us, The owner answered all my emails promptly and was extremely helpful with any questions I had. Tiny glitch was upon arrival, called housekeeper who didn't speak English so we didn't know how to get in; a wonderful neighbor saw us panicking and called her and got the info for us. Even allowed us to have "check out inspection" the night before since we were leaving early. We will be heading back to Paris summer of 2018 - this apartment is first on my "to do" list... Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Thank you, Miriam, for welcoming us into your beautiful home.

Our stay in "charming luxury apartment, Saint Germain Des Pres"

  • 1 of 5

The apartment was a great disappointment. We stayed there for a month of September 2015. The only positive thing about this apartment was a location - close to Seine and Tuileries. It is a ground floor on the very crowded street and if you open blinds and windows the all exaust from the traffic, noise and looks from passe byes go into the apartment. So you live isolated from the outside world and it's depressing. The layout of the apartment is good but very poorly equipped: the dishwasher is broken, refrigerator is small and covered with ice because the door is always open, there are no normal beds - just two unfolding sofabeds and they are very heavy - once you open them better not to fold them back, and the worst thing - to get the hot water running you have to climb on the ladder to the ceiling to switch it on. We couldn't find it at first and asked the owner (by e-mail) for the explanation but got unfriendly answer. The landlord is greedy and not friendly. I wont recommend it to anybody.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest I am very surprised of your comments so negative since many of the disadvantages were related to your personal difficulties. As I have said in the numerous messages that we exchanged during your stay, the apartment for rent is not like a hotel where all the services are included. I tried to help even with a my dear friend that came to the apartment to solve your problem of synchronization of the TV and wifi that were linked to a "non-inserted electrical plug".The situation of a grounf floor and sofa beds are well illustrated in the apartment characteristics. The road noise is also a very personal perception and linked to your both habits and perhaps to your age. It's not true that the dishwasher was broken and the the refrigerator had only a problem of incomplete closure of the door that has been corrected with both a plumber and then with the replacement of the same refrigerator due to your continuous insistence so that the old refrigerator is working now in my house. I'm sorry you've compiled a review so severe and partial that will bring serious and not justified harm to the image of the apartment (see others excellent reviews). I beg you therefore to revise this opinion so negative and it remains a beautiful memory of a Paris which was still serene and joyful. If you'd still like to know your negative experience, please specify in the review your personal difficulties. Best regards Miriam

I moved in rue de l'universitè 8 with a friend of mine to study for one year in Paris. We couldn't find something more comfortable for us and for our necessities. Being a student who is looking for a place to live in Paris could be hard, and it could be easy to end up living in some far away place from the city center. The apartment is a good solution for it's size, the comfort it's offer and it's location. We spent here amazing 6 months till now and we are going to spend other 6 as well.

Perfect location, excellent apartment

  • 4 of 5

This was an excellent apartment for the 2 of us - perfect location for visiting the louvre, musee d'orsay etc. It was quiet, cool, spotless and roomier than we had expected.

The sofa bed was comfortable and another 2 people could have easily slept in the sitting room. The galley kitchen has a hob, fridge, dishwasher and combi microwave and is well supplied with plates, pots etc. We loved the dressing room which has lots of closet space - both drawers & hanging space and a movement sensitive light (handy for finding your way to the bathroom at night!).

The owner sent us good directions about 10 days before our stay and the key holder met us as soon as we rang.

The only draw backs were that it is a little dark because of the shutters and also one of the shower doors was broken and had been taken off so we could not enjoy what is a fantastic shower, being aware the whole time that the floor was getting splashed. Also, if you want a shower in the evening as well as the morning you must remember to set the "extra hot water" switch every morning. There is an excellent supermarket on Rue de Buci, about 5 mins walk away but also good restaurants locally.

Although the instructions we received said we should check out by 9.00am (which is very early!), we were able to arrange with the key holder for her to inspect the apartment at 9 and we were able to stay until later. The keyholder does not speak English and my French is hopeless so I would advise that this should be clarified with the owner at time of booking.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment!

Owner's Response: Dear guest I am glad that you liked the holiday in my apartment in Saint Germain des Prés. I surely will keep track of your suggestions. I'm sorry for the problem of shower door that was caused by the previous guest. As regards the system of hot water preparation is made ??necessary by the standards of energy saving. I hope to have you again welcome guest in the future. Best regards Miriam

Perfect Location, Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had in Paris, enhanced by having such a lovely apartment to come home to. I spent hours searching for the right place for us, and was not disappointed with our choice. Situated in a perfect location, so close to everything we wanted to see - Le Louvre, Jardin des Tuileries (where there was a fun carnival throughout July and August), Musee d'Orsay, Boulevard Saint Germain each just a couple of minutes walk. We even walked to Notre Dame and Jardin du Luxembourg. For the attractions further afield, two metro stations are very close by, and we also made good use of the Batobus. The neighbourhood was fantastic, with cafes close by, a good boulangerie, excellent fromager, and the divine L'Epicerie d'Olivier Pitou just around the corner. We treated ourselves with the scallops with shaved black truffles! My daughter's eyes almost popped out of her head when we came across Laduree two blocks away with its colourful display of macarons in the windows, and then a bit further down the street Chocolat Debauve & Gallais!! Some of the most enjoyable meals we had in Paris were simple picnics we took to the riverbank with bread, cheese and salads bought from these nearby stores. The apartment was well equipped and comfortable for my husband and I and our 8 year-old-daughter. Ground floor was a bonus after long days out walking. We would gladly recommend this apartment to others and would love to stay here again if we are ever lucky enough to visit Paris in the future.

perfect location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is lovely and well appointed with all that is needed for a pleasant stay in Paris. The location was perfect for walking and catching the metro. The street was quiet. A wonderful shower. Comfortable pull out beds. The photos are true depictions. The only downfall was the inability to open the outside shutters, to allow more light into the apartment, which may have been a seasonal/rain season issue. We would stay at this location again.
