As good as being inside the flat! (scroll right down the main page in the middle to "Links to more information” this is below the reviews, below the map and under Manager info where our Paris Rental Connections logo is listed) Located in the heart of bustling St. Germain des Prés (the “Latin Quarter”), this newly-renovated studio on Paris’s famous Left Bank is a paradise on the historic rue Dauphine. The rue Dauphine, named in honor of the future Louis XIII, was opened in 1607 following the construction of the Pont Neuf (the “new bridge”). Our studio is on the second story of a well-maintained 18th-century building. One look at a map and you will understand the attraction of staying in our centrally-located apartment. Be sure to scroll down the page and see our 360 degree interactive tour. Past the reviews and the location map and just below Manager Info. The interactive tour feels like you are there already! A discrete wood door on the rue Dauphine lets you in the secure vestibule of our building. Walk up the stairs to our open, airy studio. At 45 sq metres (450 sq ft), the apartment comfortably accommodates two adults with one or two children. 11 foot high ceilings with exposed original wood beams, and windows on either side of the apartment, provide great light and a sense of airy spaciousness. The kitchen has granite counter tops, all new appliances (including washer/dryer and dishwasher), and is well equipped for those who like to cook. Cooking in Paris is a delight with the best markets (the Market at St. Germain is a visual and gourmet delight), wine shops, and an American-style grocery stores nearby. Three individual Murphy beds that pull out of the walls are the great surprise in this studio. Don’t want to make up your bed in the morning? No problem! Just tuck it away and forget about it. The double bed has a firm mattress and feels comfortable to a 6’ tall person. The individual bunk beds also smartly fold up into the opposite wall. From the bottom bed a small table folds out which can be used for work or eating. The new WC is separate from the bathroom. With a 100 litre water tank you will not run short of hot water in the spa-like bathroom which features a heated towel rail, granite counter top, and American-style shower which is high enough to accommodate a tall adult. And yes, even in Paris one needs to relax at home, so the apartment is equipped with WiFi and a flat screen on which to watch cable television. Location Take one look at a map and you will understand the attraction of staying in our centrally-located apartment. In a well-maintained 18th-century building. A discrete wood door on the rue Dauphine lets you in the secure vestibule of our building. 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.

    Great studio apartment on a lively corner with cafes, street musicians, a well stocked grocery store, and plenty of shops. 22 May 2014 - 12:54:51

    My daughter and I spent a lovely long weekend here. Everything about the apartment was comfortable and clean. We ended up having two "picnic" lunches in the apartment and also found the kitchen to be well-equipped. Matts who greeted us was friendly and knowledgeable. The location is perfect...close to restaurants and the Metro. 22 May 2014 - 12:09:22

    Excellent area to stay in. Grocery store nearby as well as lots of restaurants and cafs. Nearby Metro stations for easy access to the rest of Paris. 16 June 2014 - 15:32:34

    Location was just perfect for easy walk to all tourist attractions such as the Louvre, Notre Dame, D'Orsay Museum, Luxemburg Garden, Eiffel Tower, and more. Easy access to restaurants and cafe's such as Cafe Conti, Cafe de Paris, and Cafe Bucci. Easy access to pharmacy, bakeries, and markets. Very lively all day. Traveled early June. It is light out until 22:30 or so. Easy access to St Germain Blvd and St Michele. Many accessible metro locations with Odeon being the closest. The studio apartment is as described in listing if not better. It was perfect for a family of three (2 adults and 1 young child). Had all the amenities needed-Kitchen with stove top, oven, microwave, diswasher, and washing/drying machine. Just need to keep in mind washing and drying clothes takes longer than U.S. machines. Enough dishes, mugs, coffee and expresso cups, pots and pans, for indoor eating. Both the agent we book with and the agent who met us at the studio apartment were wonderful to work with. The communications with the booking agent was easy and very well organized. The receiving agent very helpful. When we return again someday, we will surely book this location again and we will surely be highly recommending this location to family and friends. Merci beaucoup Elodi and Matt!!!!!! 28 June 2014 - 22:45:09

    My husband and two teenage daughters stayed in the apartment for 5 nights. We couldn't have been happier! We were a bit lost coming out of the Metro which made us about 30 minutes late in meeting Shelly, our Agent. Even though Shelly was a little late getting to her next appointment, she spent the time needed to make sure we understood how the apartment worked (oven, dishwasher, washing machine etc.). The apartment was just perfect for us in terms of the size (much bigger and cheaper than a hotel room for 4 people). The girls each had their own bed thanks to the 2 pull down beds on the wall. The neighborhood was perfect too with lot's of shops, cafe's and restaurants to wander into. We walked to most of the sights we wanted to see such as the Louvre, Notre Dame, Saint-Chapelle, and Musee d'Orsay. When we did use the Metro, it was only a 5 minute walk. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your wonderful apartment. We also received our deposit in less than a week. Thanks again! 09 July 2014 - 02:17:26

    We stayed three nights and everything was amazing. From booking to obtaining the keys and my full deposit refund, everything was done professionally. The apartment is exactly as described. We were family of four (two girls ages 5 and 9). We were very comfortable. This was the only apartment ww stayed at that had a washer and dryer. Most other ones, you need to hang your cloths to dry. The location was great. You have everything around you. We walked back from Eiffel tower one day with a short stop at a cafe and my 5 year old handled it. We arrived by train and got the metro to Odeon and walked with our suite cases. It is a very short walk. The hard part is carrying your bags up the metro staircase and to the second floor where the unit resides. I would definitely go back. 29 July 2014 - 21:17:27

    We (a family with two young children) had the pleasure of staying in the Rue Dauphine apartment for a week. Elodie and Michelle from Paris Rental Connections responded quickly to my emails, and provided all the information we needed to find and access the apartment. At the agreed time, we were met by Shelly, who showed us around the apartment, explained all the equipment, and gave us some useful advice on our stay in Paris. The apartment is tastefully decorated, clean and was big enough for the 4 of us. It also has a washer/dryer and a separate toilet, which is useful for a family. The location is in walking distance to just about everything in central Paris, and is surrounded by the cafs and shops. Within a few days of leaving, we received notice of the refund of our deposit. We loved this apartment, and definitely recommend it, and Paris Rental Connections. 10 September 2014 - 21:02:00

    The location of this apartment could not have been better for our first visit to Paris. Outside our door was a lively area filled with cafes, bakery, grocery store, restaurants, etc. Perfect for those evenings when you don't want to wander far. We were two blocks from the Seine, two blocks from the metro, walking distance to plenty of interesting places. From the apartment, we heard kids playing in the street a few times, just like any neighborhood. We never heard noise or music from local establishments late at night....and we slept with windows open. The apt was fully furnished. The shower was wonderful. The only negative we had was that you can't see down to the street, only over rooftops. There were times we wanted to look out and see if people were wearing jackets or not before we headed down those two flights of stairs with our overwalked, tired feet. Small price to pay for all the pluses that come with this sweet place on Rue Dauphine in the magical City of Paris. 04 October 2014 - 20:53:06

    It would be hard to get a better location than this flat for a few days' sightseeing in Paris. You can walk everywhere if you feel like it and if you don't, there is a tube station a few minutes' walk away and several buses to take you pretty much anywhere you like. The streets outside are filled with gorgeous food shops and the local markets offer all sorts of delicious foodstuffs. There is even a lovely flower shop should you feel the need to make the flat even more romantic! The flat is very clean and the kitchen very well equipped. It's hard think of a better option in such a fabulous location. 08 April 2015 - 14:17:43

    In the middle of everything on the left bank, this apartment faces inside so you won't be hearing all the busy traffic on rue Dauphine, not even on weekends when its surrounding streets are full of dinners/shoppers. Early in the morning when I go downstairs to fetch bread and coffee I'd see street cleaning and otherwise an open empty scene, very Parisian of time past. We'd be back most certainly and use it more extensively next time, for sure! 08 May 2015 - 18:21:29

    This was a great flat for our family. The apartment is very nice, clean, and in a great location. The kids loved the murphy beds. The agent who met us after hours (8:15 pm) was very thorough, knowledgeable and patient. He was not rushing to give us the keys and get out the door. As for location, the flat is in the middle of lots of restaurants and a lively area. Most restaurants in the area were also open on Sunday when many places in Paris are closed. It could get noisy with the windows open, but once we closed them we had no problem with noise. We were only there for one weekend, so we basically only did the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Notre Dame and some walking around. It was very easy to get to any of these locations. The Louvre and Notre Dame are within walking distance. The Eiffel Tower is about a 40 minute train ride. The metro station is very close - about 5 minutes. We walked to the St Michel/Notre Dame station with our luggage to take the train to the airport. About a 10 minute walk with luggage. It was fine for us - our kids are 10 and 12 years old - so they did not have a hard time taking their own luggage over the cobblestone roads and uneven sidewalks. There were also a few flights of stairs to carry the luggage to get to the train, but we did it with no problems. We would definitely stay in this flat again and highly recommend it! 15 May 2015 - 14:32:38

    In the heart of Saint Germaine and n Rue Dauphine this apartment provide you walking access to all the great bistros and sights of SG and the Latin Quarter, and some of the best literally outside of your door. To explore further afield requires only a brief walk (5 minutes or less) to one of the 4 nearby metro stations. From there you can get anwhwere you want, both within and beyond Paris, quickly and inexpensively. The Dauphine apartment is modern, clean, functional and pleasant. My only criticisim / observation is the lack of a terrace but that will not keep me from renting it again. 02 June 2015 - 16:17:01

    We loved this studio apartment right in the heart of our favorite area on the Left Bank!! It had everything we needed, complete kitchen and all the necessary appliances and Wifi and the beds were wonderful!!! We loved all the winding streets just outside or door, and many bistros, cafes, patisseries, restaurants and shops! It is a very hip old area with all the best of Paris close by!! The agents managing the property were EXCELLENT!! Very professional, quick to respond and to help in everyway to make the trip perfect for us!!! Highly recommend! Pictures and descriptions were exactly representative of the listing!! Lovely!! 06 June 2015 - 13:55:06

    We just returned from a five night stay at the Dauphine apartment. We are a family of four with children ages 7 and 10. The apartment was in the perfect location, close to almost all sites. We walked to most things and used the metro on a few occasions for sights a little further out. There were several cafe's, eateries, and a grocery store steps away from the apartment. In general the apartment was small, but was laid out in such a way that it met our every need. The beds were comfortable with clean linens, the dishwasher and washing machine worked, and the shower was warm. Although we were in the heart of lots of night life, the apartment was quiet when you closed the windows, which made it easy for our kids to fall asleep, or nap at anytime of the day. The agency had returned our deposit within a few days of our departure. I have absolutely no complaints. Great bargain for the price. 26 June 2015 - 13:17:13

    My family enjoyed this studio, which is not only well-equiped but also in the heart of a lively Parisian neighborhood. Our kids especially loved the murphy bunk beds. Excellent appliances and wifi. Ceiling fans were much appreciated during the warm nights we were there. Expect some street noise on weekend nights. Location is prime, close to the Odeon metro stop. 11 July 2015 - 16:32:54

    We loved our stay at the studio Rue Dauphine! We were travelling with our teenage sons who are both over 6 feet tall. The murphy bunk beds were perfect for them. Even though the temperature was over 30c, the apartment was cool and comfortable to sleep in. The apartment had everything we needed and the property manager was excellent! We can't say enough about the wonderful area around the studio Rue Dauphine. Lovely cafes, bakeries, grocery stores, etc. A short walk to the Seine, the Jardin du Luxembourg and the metro. We will pass on the name of this apartment to friends and family! 27 July 2015 - 18:01:18

    I traveled alone so this space was the perfect size for me. During my orientation after arriving we folded up the bunk beds so I could use the work table. It added visual space to the room. The on-site agent, Galenya, was terrific. She was hospitable, experienced, thorough, and open to contact if I needed to reach her. All went smoothly. I visited during the last week of November 2015. The heaters/radiators were functional but it remained cool in the evening. I needed to use the two comforters that were provided. This may reflect more the standard for apartment heating in Paris compared to what I'm used to at home. It's more of an observation than a criticism. One can hear revelry outside on weekend nights but it settles down. When I was there there were two apartments in the building that were under renovation so there was plaster dust and plastic tarps throughout the stairwell and lobby. There was no way I could have stayed in the apartment during the weekdays if I wanted to enjoy quiet. The construction was loud while the workers were considerate. Ask about this when you book. The booking agency was fantastic, onsite welcome fantastic and location fantastic. I arrived in France a week after the awful tragic events on November 13th. While I had no hesitation about visiting Paris and France, I communicated with the agency ahead of time to see if it was appropriate and respectful for me to visit then. I loved the resilience I read in the message exchanges we had and in the way I experienced Paris once more during this trip: beautiful and resolute. 11 January 2016 - 00:02:26

    Having a home base with a solid repertoire of amenities proved perfect for us. We could prepare a meal, wash up some clothes, stay connected to the Internet the entire trip, and really relax when we got a second. This was new experience, as we generally opt for a hotel solution for accommodation. However, it turned out to be a great part of our trip planning. Our family spent almost a week selecting a rental online, first isolating sites with accommodations for four, then exploring the area for proximity to attractions and nearby transportation links. Finally, we contacted the renters with any others questions, making sure to request a total price! We were super happy with our selection. Situated in the Latin Quarter, just 5 minutes or so from St Michel (another couple of minutes more to the Louvre and Notre Dame) put everything we needed within a short walk. Further, main transportation hubs like RER B & C train lines and Metro stops were also within a couple of minutes. Our bonus was Rue be Buci A market, entertainment (re: Street Musicians), and bar/cafe pedestrian style street that we frequented daily. Although we were initially a bit nervous about this non-traditional type of accommodation (re: damage deposits, up front fees, etc), we had great success with this rental, drawing a very responsive agent and a homey little apartment. The only drawback we noted, in fact, is we almost always have had a street view from upper windows. It really wasnt part of this rental. But that wasnt a surprise, as we knew that when we rented. Everything was as advertised! 21 March 2016 - 23:30:19

    I have been to Paris 5 times now and each time I fall more in love with staying in St. Germain Des Pres. Location - FANTASTIC! This place is in the heart of it all at the corner of Rue Dauphine and Rue De Buci. Everything is near by: grocery store restaurants, bus, metros. It is less than a 10 minute walk to Notre Dame, 15 minute walk to the Louvre. My kids (12 and 11) felt completely comfortable walking everywhere. We even walked to the Eiffel tower from here in just over 30 minutes. Hospitality - Instructions were crystal clear and they do a great job communicating with you. Ben was there to greet us right away. He spent a lot of time going through everything with us. I think almost too much to be honest, but I think it was better then none at all. We were EXHAUSTED when we got there and I think that the 30 minute overview of the apartment could have been cut short. That being said, he was SO friendly and gave us some good tips that we may have never received if he only spent 10 minutes reviewing things with us. Accommodations - Although very tight for a family of four, I felt it was great. The beds were okay (not the best), but they were clean. The only recommendation I would say is that we had a soiled comforter (stains and mascara stains on it) that was not too appealing and we ended up finding another one in the cabinet and switching it out. I hope they just throw that old one away! The amenities were just what you needed: full kitchen, dishwasher, fridge, washer and dryer... Although the dryer doesn't really work so we hung dried our clothes. (not a big deal). Nothing I would really change about the place except maybe a quieter bathroom and shower door.. It seemed to wake up my family every time :) Thanks for the great hospitality and we miss Paris already! 14 April 2016 - 12:54:47

    Tastefully furnished, but could need some repair/renovation (the screens at the windows, the matress...). But we would rent it again for an other stay in Paris. 24 January 2018 - 12:49:00
